Caleb Graham is a werewolf by nature, a tracker by profession. He uses his “extra gifts” to find people, and not always in the most legal or ethical manner. He doesn’t care what they’ve done, or who wants them found, as long as his considerable fee is paid. He likes his life simple and uncomplicated.
Anna Moder, former physician to Caleb’s pack, happens across Caleb during a particularly violent “negotiation” that has left him bloodied and unconscious. She helps him, despite the fact that he’s cost her a car, so he insists that she stay with him on the road for a while. As they grow closer, Anna looks past the gruff exterior and and the questionable job to thoroughly decent werewolf underneath.
Anna – who is careful to edit her involvement with Caleb’s pack from their conversations – doesn’t talk about why a nice girl wants to live in the middle of frozen nowhere, but she’s obviously on the run from something. When Anna’s past collides with Caleb’s current assignment from one of his sleazier contacts, Caleb finally has to make a choice—protect his job…or his potential mate?My thoughts:
First, I have to say that I miss the cartoonish covers. This one is just way too serious for me. :) Plus, I don't see Anna/Tina wearing that in the cold. Okay, now that I've talked about the outside... here is the inside of the book:
This book is not as humorous as the previous two. However, this is still a Molly Harper book so don't be too disappointed, there is plenty of snark and humor still within the pages. Even with the snark, there were still somethings that sort of bothered me. Sort of until I chose to ignore them. Anna has a form of PTSD and so some of the things Caleb does would trigger her. Also, some of his attitude is totally not warranted if she was so scarred. However, once I decided that it is a PNR and magic could totally make these things "okay" to ignore (magic started the healing process), then it didn't bother me so much. I mean I read these books for entertainment. It did entertain.
I do like the way Anna/Tina grew. Even if it isn't totally on a believable path, I really did like the way Caleb handled things in the end. That really endeared me to him. I also loved the secondary characters... especially Maggie. She was funnier in this book than in her own.
In the end I give this book 4 stars. It is entertaining if nothing else. I needed something to make me laugh and this did the trick. I recommend this book for fans of Molly Harper! :) Don't forget to preorder your copy.
