I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer... but it is a short story. So with that said.... here is my review...
This is book two of the cougar series. You do not have to read book one, but it would help it flow a little better for you.
We meet Lara, a very upset witch (to say the least). She is set on revenge against the black cougars. She believed they killed someone very close to her for no reason. Her only means of closure is to kill those involved in the case - the black cougar family.
Lara knew that Kane was sent to kill her. Kane being one of the black cougar family members. He was sent on a mission, to kill Lara. Of course, unless she killed him first. Killing is all Lara has been able to think since that moment in time. It has consumed her - heart and soul. Or at least she thought so. Until she stepped into Kane's arms. Confusing thoughts cost her more than just her evil plan....
Kane was sent on a mission to kill Lara. The same woman who had tried to kill members of his family. He was not given the matters of the case, he just knew that this was his orders to fulfill. Kane, being the fair man he is... needed answers as to why. Was it really the answers he was seeking or the woman who ran his blood hot?
This book is a very hot read. The characters and plot are thought out very well. Ms. Gayle has created a world that wants to stay hidden and they will do what they have to - to protect themselves and their world. However, I felt something missing. The missing element is a feeling of true love. Without giving away too much, I know the mating process of shifters and such, but the story just seem to lack a real love. Don't get me wrong, the sex was hot... and the action was there... but it's like the author is holding back on her true writing skills. But all in all, this is a great read and I recommend it to anyone who loves the paranormal world!
