My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Anyone but you!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌍
Character development: 😬🤭🥺🤩
The Hero: Hawke – He is an alpha in the Fae Corps and has been watching Charley for two years. Though he thinks he is too old for her even though she finally turned 18. He has been following her for the last two months since she left the Fae Corps stronghold in Singapore.
The heroine(s): Charley – She is the sister of Jess and she has had a crush on Hawke for years, and she knows how he has been watching her. But she is intent on losing her virginity whether with Hawke or someone else.
The Story: Hawke kidnaps Charley in order to save her from herself. Especially since the Fae Corps have united with Gabriel and Raphael to take down the Vampire – Viking alliance and the virgin auctions that they have been holding for years.
I have to admit all five books of this series are basically the same story told again and again. They contain dominant alpha-hole Heroes, damaged main characters, violent alpha Fae matings, and many even have the same or similar wording. I think that in nearly every book there was a point or two where someone said something along the lines of “all the pores on my skin popped” and I remember thinking every time, what the heck does that mean? And the word “turgid” was used far too often.
Each of the books, had a Hero who wants his heroine more than anything and gets all alpha possessive, but still doesn’t want to be tied down or has reasons he thinks he can’t be with the heroine long term. In this case he is fifteen years older than her and thinks he is too old for her and would be too rough for her.
The narration was great and I did like the romance between Charley and Hawke. Charley was spunky and turned the tables on Hawke more than once.
