Turn of the Moon by L.P. Dover

I’ve been in the mood for more urban fantasy books lately, which isn’t all that surprising since I used to read them every single day before I started becoming obsessed with the romance genre. I have read L.P. Dover’s work before, and since I love shifters I thought this would be a perfect book to help me out with my urban fantasy craving. I tend to like the male characters in Dover’s books, so I was excited to read the kind of alpha male that she dreamed up for a shifter book. So our book starts out with Bailey, our lovely heroine, and a rare female alpha. Her parents have promised her to Kade, the Yukon pack alpha who is, well, there is no nice way to say this, but a horrible and seriously unhinged dude. There is never a second in the entire book where I ever believed that Kade has any redeeming qualities at all. So Bailey, I liked her. She’s stands up for herself, she protects others even when it puts her own safety on the line, and I really liked that she questions magic or things she doesn’t quite understand, she never just goes along with what other people tell her. What can I say I like a woman who thinks for herself and doesn’t just buy into any old thing.

Fighting for Love by L.P. Dover

This book revolved around a theme I really like in romance books, second chances, two exes finding their way back to each other. Shelby and Matt’s story has all the elements you want in a romance book, steamy heat, tragic pasts, and a villain to defeat. I actually enjoyed this book, it was an easy read, and I enjoyed how everything ended. I liked Shelby, she had a really nice, likable quality about her. I liked that she was intelligent and educated, and was able to hold her own when a man tried to bully her into things. I liked that she was strong, emotionally, she had a big tragedy in her past that could have easily ruined her, but she carried on, and made something out of her life, and I have a lot of respect for that. Although I don’t always agree with Shelby’s decisions, here best guy friend and I are on the same page about a lot of Shelby’s decisions, I do understand them, and I sympathize with her. Matt was a great hero, he definitely comes off as a good looking, very strong, and capable man. I liked that he just went for things he wanted. When Shelby comes back into his life, he doesn’t hesitate, he follows her when she runs away. He does a bit of a control issue when the book starts, he gets egged on by people, and has a hard time keeping his anger in check. But thankfully, Matt learns […]
