Title: Six Months (Seven Series #2)
Author: Dannika Dark
Genre: Paranormal Romance
April Frost is a compassionate young woman with a steady job and ambitious goals. But the harder she runs away from her past, the more it threatens to destroy her. When three strangers enter her life, April is forced to face her demons and it’s a battle she may not win.
Private investigators in the Breed world are men who take risks, and Reno Cole is no exception. As a Shifter, he’s expected to control his inner animal. But lately his wolf has been venturing dangerously close to the city, and he’s about to discover why. When Reno is reintroduced to a family friend, the attraction is immediate. April captivates him with her secretive eyes and resilient spirit. She’s also in trouble, and despite the fact she’s a human, Reno can’t turn his back on her.
April is caught between two worlds: One that threatens to bury her dreams and another that could fulfill them. Can she trust the wolf at her door and find the courage to overcome her demons?
April is a great character. I know some people would disagree and think its antifeminist, but I liked that April wanted her knight to come and save her. I didn’t find it to be a terrible thing to wish for; she had a tough life and she wanted someone to help her. I also felt so sad for her-her life has been so tough and she did what she thought needed to be done. I found myself thinking “What else could she do? What would I do if it were me?” So, I felt that April was a great character because she was more real than just about any heroine in a romance novel.
Reno. I just thought he was a very static character. I get it-he is a closed off man who has seen too much in his life. But that doesn’t translate well into a book character sometimes. I felt like Reno was a misogynistic a-hole. While Austin, in book one, was possessive and demanding, I never felt that he was disrespectful to Lexi. Reno treated April like a play thing or a hobby in my opinion. I mean, if he really cared, he could have easily found out what kind of trouble April was in. He’s a PI for crying out loud! But he never does. I just found Reno to be everything I DON’T want in a hero. It kind of ruined the book for me.
Alas, this book is difficult to rate. There were parts that were 5 star moments. There were just as many 1 star moments though… I really am curious to see what y’all think about this book. Is it just me? Did I miss something?
3 stars (5 stars for some parts, 1 star for others! I am still not sure how I feel about this book!)
