While this book occasionally had me wondering about some of the wording, the story kept my interest right from the beginning. Any time you have sexy guys running around shirtless, how can you not keep a woman’s interest? The mixture of shifters and witches was different. Not only were there more than one type of shifter, there were actually two wolf packs. I enjoyed these characters. Katie could stand up for herself but she also knew how to put others first. Jace did a balancing act between his job and his pack. But most of all, I enjoyed all the friends and family that made this town a community. The interactions between everyone was heartwarming and made this story real. Some of the “fighting” felt petty but it did progress the story. Overall, I really loved the characters and the town. I look forward to the next book in this series. Jace has to hot brothers who need to find someone and Katie has a best friend! Things could get interesting in Diablo Lake.

A plus for staying at her friend’s house though is watching her teenage crush, Jace run down the road shirtless.
