I suppose there had to be one book in the series that didn’t totally work for me, not something I expected, but as much as I enjoyed how the Apollo drug storyline and crazy going on with the Coven Nine were moved along, Tori and Adam didn’t really do it for me, even though the smexy was pretty damn hot between them.
Here’s the deal with Tori. For the most part I did like her. I liked her stubborness, loyalty and determination to do what she deemed was best, but those were also the things that had her making decisions that would get her into situations that she couldn’t handle and therefore made things worse. I wanted to reach out and shake her many times. Adam was all kinds of Alpha AF, not that any of the males in this series and the spin off would be anything less, but there was just something missing and he didn’t draw me in like the previous males have. With my tepid feels towards these two, I was some what “meh” about their journey. I don’t mind the push/pull thing, or the uber dominate male smexy thing, but the lack of communication which led to many, many assumptions got old.
While the romance didn’t move me, I am happy with how this book moved the Apollo drug issue forward and resolved the Coven Nine issue and I’m looking forward to diving into Wicked Bite and spending lots of quality time with Bear!

Working as an informant for the DEA, Victoria Monzelle is used to living on the edge. But she’s not a big fan of getting kidnapped. And definitely not by a bunch of bad boy witches with fancy-colored fire to shoot at people. So when Adam Dunne shows up and claims to be a witch enforcer, she’s not going to put her life in his hands based on his word, no matter how smooth and smart and beautifully Irish his words sound. But on the run from a tribunal of witches, she isn’t going to make it far . . .
Before she knows it, Adam’s word is all that stands between her and execution. Sophisticated, just-gotta-ruffle-him Adam has vowed to make her his one eternal mate, wild and unpredictable as she is—to save her from a sentence of certain death. But Tori isn’t interested in being anyone’s pity date. And if they think she’s unpredictable now, they should see what’s coming next . .
