I thought this was a sweet little romance story.
I thought that Joe and Nikki were perfect for each other. Although at times I did find Nikki to be a bit hard headed. I thought Joe was perfect. And Nikki's sister was adorable and at times the only thing that saved this book. I also don't think Nikki gave her sister enough credit that she could move on from losing their parents.
I didn't have an issue with this book. And found it to be enjoyable. But my issue really comes from the Howls romance series. I understand that these are novella's and that there shorter than normal books and your most likely to just scratch the surface of a story with these books. But at times I feel like we don't get to know the characters very well. Though I will make an exception and say I think we got to know Joe and Nikki well in this one. But I'm not sure why they consider these novella's paranormals. Yes I understand that the characters in all of the Howls romance series are shifters of some kind, so that makes them paranormal. But never once in any of the books that I have read in this Howls line have the ever shifted. Their shifters have been mentioned in books and wanting to get out. But they just never shift in these books and that bugs me.
Anyways I'm giving this book 3.5 Stars out of 5!!!!
