Tangled Leashes

Leashed, #4

Having leashed two shifters, Meg already has a ton on her plate, what with her new status and grand dame and everything that comes with it. However, she has started to develop feelings for Logan and it seems like fate isn't ready to let her off the hook just yet. Events quickly fall into place to force her hand and prompt a choice from her.

The first portion of this story was very much telling, not showing. Sometimes it felt like it dragged a little and wasn't quite gripping enough because of that. It was frustrating because it was glossing over what I assume to be the previous three books and I wanted the story to move on without going into detail of what happened before. However, this book can function well on its own as a result, which is a bonus. I dislike coming into the middle of a series without realizing it and the info-dumpy recitations definitely helped with that.

Towards the middle of the book, it picks up quite a bit and everything starts to come together. It started to flow better and the characters start to have much more dynamic interactions. Suspense built up, and the action ramped up until the end of the book. The character interactions felt genuine and I really appreciated how there was a progression arc instead of everyone just falling into bed together without thought or discussion. It was hot, it was amazing, and most of all, it was believable.

I really enjoyed this and I'll probably pick up the first three books to see how the story progressed from there. I can't wait to see further adventures of Meg, Logan, Rudy, and Michael.

Book Blurb for Tangled Leashes

Sometimes we get what we never wanted, and Meg never wanted to be grand dame. Now that she’s got the job, she's doing her damnedest to do it right. But it's far from a one woman show.

Michael is the one who really should be running the show, but his newly discovered magic powers make managing his own life almost too much to handle. Then there's Rudy. Sweet Rudy who is all about doing everything he can, but who’s just too young and inexperienced to be much help. So what's a busy grand dame to do?

Lucky for Meg, she’s got one more shape-shifter to lean on. Connections, personality and background make Logan uniquely suited to be Meg’s righthand man, at least in the public eye. Problem is, he claims to be in love with her. It’s not that she doesn’t think he’s great -- because she does -- but there’s no more room in her bed or her heart for another man.

Just to make matters worse, a witch and a shape-shifter from Michael’s past arrive in LA asking for help.

Great. Just... great.
