I wasn’t sure how to rate this book. It doesn’t deserve a three but it’s not quite a four either. I’ll give it a 3.5. After reading the back of the book, I was excited to read it. After finishing it, I feel a little let down.

Things I liked:
The idea behind the storyline was excellent. With all the craziness in the world today, having Scott Tech as the bad guys made the story believable. I can actually see something like this happening in our world. I wouldn’t even be surprised.

I loved the fact that the main characters were deer shifters. The main focus in shifter books is usually on the wolf. It was refreshing to read a story about other shifters.

I liked the idea of a legion of protectors watching over unsuspecting humans. This idea can lead to so many more books.

Things I didn’t like:
Mila was up in arms at first about the whole mate and supernatural thing. Within a few hours, Mila (who’s a virgin) was jumping into bed with Elias and totally accepting everything. It was unrealistic to have that dramatic a change within that time frame.

Drake, who is supposed to be her nemesis, turned out to be a spoiled brat who would throw tantrums like a two year old. It was disappointing. Maybe he’ll be a better bad guy in part two.

Lastly, I feel like the characters lacked depth. Because of this, the story didn’t suck me in and hold my undivided attention. I read the book and enjoyed it but not as much as I should have.
