    What can I say this book had the makings of a fantastic story, one that would have kept me an avid fan The writing, characters, and story line were brilliant, but somewhere along the way it just died It seems like the author came to a point in her writing and just said Ok, lets tie up all the loose ends and finish the book and along with it the characters lost their depth.I m sorry to say that I ve been spoiled with strong, kick ass heroines lately, and Mackenzie didn t cut it for me.I really had to force myself to finish reading thisto the point I was opting to watch bad prime time TV It became predictable and mundane. and I lost total interest in the story around the last 50 pages.I SO wanted to love this book, because Jackson and Mackenzie had so much potent...

    I d rather a book just be bad from the start than to tease and entice me before leaving me high and dry Sampling this book WILL NOT help you determine if you d like to buy it or not At First Storyline is interesting suspenseful I m enjoying the para plot of the FMC running from a stalker claiming to be a her fated para mate We begin the story with her on the run She heads to NOLA and gets a job at a bar Her new shifter boss is concerned about her skittish behavior and calls in her para buddies to investigate Enter the MMC, Jackson, his partner, and a host of other friends They all immediately adopt Mckensie into their group The writing is crisp, clean, fun, engaging, and believable The flow and pacing are moving along quickly My only complaint at this point is that voice infliction and word choices could be a little better So what if his eyes kept flickering back to Mackenzie and her lustrous hair In terms of a character s voice matching his her persona, Jackson often uses girly word choices If willing to go with it because the plot is good so far And, then Falling Apart By Midpoint Did we switch authors somewhere The writing crawls The plot is falling apart The characters aren t developing I m at 46% and realize this story has been steadily falling apart at the seams for some tim...

    I was interrupted in the midst of reading this and found it really hard to come back to I actually persisted another quarter of the book, but found myself wishing I were reading something else So I did.The thing is, the characters are interesting and I wouldn t have minded spending time with them Mackenzie was a little hard to like at first, even though she had my sympathy from the first Jackson is immediately engaging, though, and I warmed up to Kenzie through him Their relationship goes from zero to sixty rather fast, but I found I didn t mind that nearly as much as I normally do I just liked how much he cared about her and how she responded was sweet.But the world around them Yeah, not so much The weird is pretty standard in the world Weres, magic, psychics, etc Which is fine What wasn t so fine was the overwhelming suck involved By which I mean the power structures are made for fascism individuality and choice are pretty much unknown This stays in the background for a while because Jackson s friends are independent, accepting people and you can see how much they care about the people around them and even for complete strangers It isn t until you m...

    2 1 2 stars Read this a few days ago and saying I was disappointed is putting it nicely I ve been blowing through the Rogers short stories and ebooks and I had very high hopes for my first full length novel The premise is excellent and the writing is good but most anything pleasant I have to say ends there There were too many secondary characters This confused me a...

    It s getting to the point where the creative minds behind Moira Rogers stories could write ads for the phone book and I d not only preorder the damn thing, but salivate all over it once it arrived Crux is another fun, engrossing offering from this dynamic duo that doesn t disappoint.One of the things that most books that I really enjoy have in common is a really thoroughly detailed, really believable world that serves as the setting, with rules that make sense and are enforced consistently Crux doesn t apologize for being the first book in a series at all instead, a lot of time and pages are devoted to explaining how the world works, what the supernatural elements are and how they work, and why the super bad guy is a super bad and b just what exactly his aims and goals are anyway The bad guy here s goal is to preserve Cougar shapeshifters at all costs, and what would otherwise be a relatively normal seeming goal is twisted into something seriously creepy.There are some standard elements from PNR here that see...
