My name is Daisy Lennox.
Life has been on the fast track to hell for me lately. Between my fiancé cheating on me just weeks before walking down the aisle, and my career as an author going down the drain from lack of inspiration; I’m a hot mess. When it starts to feel like nothing will look up, my best friend Hannah comes to the rescue with a vacation in mind. One that involves leaving the city life of Chicago, for a more secluded one in a small town called White Hemlock in British Columbia, Canada. I thought nothing could bring back my inspiration to write, or my ability to feel so strongly for someone again.
That is, until I met him…
My name is Bastian Urso.
I’m not completely human and my life has been a mess for as long as I can remember. My wife was taken away from me by hunters for being what we are, leaving not only a gaping hole in my heart, but also leaving me to raise our daughter Addylin alone. We left our home in Alaska not long after for this secluded city called White Hemlock for a fresh start. Here, we found the peace we needed to move on with life, Addy being the only thing holding me together. But the pain and bitter loneliness of losing my wife only seemed to get worse with every passing day.
That is, until I met her…
Two people. Two different worlds. More than two hearts at stake. Daisy and Bastian are polar opposites in almost every way, but one; loving each other more than they feel they deserve to.
***This is a standalone novel and is recommended for ages 16+ due to language and some sexual situations***
I sat and read this book cover to cover this morning. After reading it I had so many things to think about because there was something so new and fresh FOR ME an avid PNR reader that I needed to wrap my head around.
One of the main things that I liked about this story was that Bastian, the main character/shifter hero, wasn’t the over the top alpha like most shifter books. There wasn’t this MINE mentality. He was a sweet guy who loves his daughter and is protecting her at any cost. Does he have the Uber Alpha in him, heck yes but he is so concerned for his daughter he puts his desires/wants on hold for her safety. I liked this “sweet” guy. Which again kinda blew me away because if you read any other books by KB her guys are not SWEET *Snickers* far far from sweet.
I liked the fact our heroine is a bit lost in her own skin. She feels a bit out of place everywhere except for this small, sleepy town in Canada. I loved seeing her change and grow in this novel. She is hiding from life and her past but slowly through the love she is feeling toward Bastain she becomes confident and bolder in her wants/needs/desires.
I enjoyed the novel and the ending of the story was sweet. I mean this book was just sweet and I absolutely loved it. Again, as a fan on KB, sweet is not normally what you get…naughty is what you expect so this book was super surprising to me in the best possible way.
K.B. Ladnier is from a small city in Southern Mississippi. She has one daughter and three cats who she claims are stealing her soul in only tiny doses so she won’t notice. She is a cyborg and spends most of her time hiding from her tiny human so she doesn’t have to share her snacks as she reads her favorite books. She hates the beach yet lives only ten minutes away from it and daydreams of mountains and snow. She is married to a hot nerd and loves him dearly even though he hordes cookies and occasionally hides her prosthetic leg from her when she’s mad, so he can get a quick escape. She plans to write as long as people continue loving what she does, otherwise she’s going to say screw it and do her second dream of owning a coffee shop. Though, she may still do both.
