If Brandee Hanson ever wants to go from waitress to photographer, she'll have to take some once-in-a-lifetime shots. But when she catches the gorgeous private investigator, Nick Wolfensen, on camera— transforming into a werewolf—she is thrown into a world of vampires, shapeshifters, and other paranormal misfits.
In order to keep his
secret and stay clear of the supernatural council, Nick will have to
convince Brandee not to release the photo. Fortunately, he was looking
for an excuse to spend more time with the beautiful waitress anyway.
I have Ashlyn Chase's Strange Neighbors series, but haven't
read it yet and didn't think I would need to in order to read this book
since it's a start to a new series. Yeah, I was wrong. Nick is the
twin brother of Konrad from book 2 of SN and there was a scene in this book talking
about things that happened in the other book and didn't really explain
it here so I was confused about what they were talking about.
lot of stuff happens in this book and it happens quick and is resolved
even quicker. The girl gets kidnapped (we're kinda told why) and Nick
solves the case in one day. Next
there's a problem with a picture being taken and it's solved by a gust
of wind. The noise in the apartment resolved in one night. There just
wasn't enough drama involved in anything in this book. Even the girl
who got kidnapped was fine with it. No crying or freaking out or
anything. She just accepted it like it happens all the time.
was okay. He didn't really stand out as anything special. Brandee was
annoying. Instead of cussing she would use all these really stupid
expressions. Not saying she needed to have a filthy mouth, but all her
little "oh my......" were enough to put me off any further books
in this series. Not even sure if I'm going to read the SN series,
cause I don't really get Ms. Chase's humor. I also couldn't figure out
if this book was suppose to be YA or just juvenile PNR.
