4 Biased Stars
As it literally says in the above review title, I am completely incapable of objectively reviewing a Suzanne Wright PNR book, especially anything from her Phoenix Pack, Mercury Pack, or – perhaps my all time favorite – Dark in You series.
So you’ve been warned.
I love her writing.
I love her humor.
I love her strong, self aware and confident female leads.
I love her ridiculously sexy alpha males.
I just love everything, folks.
I don’t even care that a lot of her books resemble each other.
Everyone always smells like exactly three mixes of random shit, e.g., mint, jasmine, and the ocean breeze…or dark chocolate, berries, and frothy cappuccino…nutmeg, cinnamon, and spring fucking grass…whatever any of that actually smells like.
Every female lead is VERY similar and makes very similar – and yet hilarious – one-liner jokes about Greta’s age.
To be blunt: all of Wright’s books – especially her shifter books – follow a formula to some degree.
This bothers some people who want every book to be completely original and life changing, blah, blah blah.
Cause you know what I like?
I like a sure thing.
I like knowing that I am going to pick up a Wright book and get EXACTLY what I want:
Fated shifter mates.
OTT alpha males.
Awesome female leads whom I love and relate to SO much.
Crazy hot sex scenes.
And a decent plot to tie it all together.
All that said, I definitely enjoyed this newest installment.
Trick and Frankie were a cute couple and I enjoyed how they came together.
I also enjoyed reading about how Frankie dealt with certain issues in the book.
So many times, certain characters will allow other characters in a book to treat them like shit and manipulate them to all ends; but not so here. Frankie stood up for herself and her boundaries through every turn and, like I said, I just dig that Wright makes her females so self-aware and confident and yet doesn’t make them TSTL and “I’m a strong woman *stomps foot like five year old*” like so many other authors do in an effort to make them seem so.
And with that, adieu.
