About the book:
Scout Donovan is a girl who believes in rules, logic, and her lifelong love of Charlie Hagan. Alex Cole believes in destiny, magic, and Scout. When Alex introduces Scout to the world of Shifters, men who change into wolves or coyotes during the full moon and Seers, women who can see your most private thoughts and emotions with a mere touch, the knowledge changes everything and everyone Scout thought she knew.
Book hidden by it’s cover. As a lover of beautiful covers I would have passed this one right by, and I would have regretted it. Scout is your very ordinary teenager that is incredibly level headed and uniqueness that are not found in many characters. She will demands your attention; with her witty humor and easy going attitude that will encourage readers. As a loner, Tammy Blackwell offer variance from your typical outcast character. She is not your quiet black sheep that will stick to the shadows, and her brother offers a lifeline to her personality. It is unusual to find the support and commitment of these two characters, but it was refreshing to see him step outside the box giving his character an upbeat and amazing personality as well. With an incredibly fast paced and moving story I was surprised to find such intricate writing that allows readers to feel the love and trust in this family. Charlie and Jase have one dedication, and that is to the protection of Scout. It is picture perfect to find that Scout is secretly in love with Charlie, but easily understood. He delectable, hunky, and protective with gives all of the characteristics of a loveable character in one. As the story unfolds it appears that Scout’s family does harbor secrets that will prove even more unique than previously considered. When the truth comes out that there are Shifters and Werewolves it is an gentle transition for the reader. It was incredibly believable that Scout would understand and accept such a development. With a new boy in town that not only is a Werewolf, but infatuated with Scout she must determine what is more important family or love. To further complicate things Scout soon realizes that she for herself that she is in love with more than one person. With disaster on the horizon Scout must search herself to determine where her heart truly lies. This is one of the character moments when readers will be on the edge of their seats, and not everyone will agree on which seat they want to be on the edge of. At just over two hundred pages I had this book finished in one sitting. It is suspenseful and lustful promising readers a knock your socks off read. The ending offers me hopes to see more to come. In the meantime I am depressed to see that this is the end.
