*some awesome sexy times*
I really love the concept and the way it started, but I just couldn’t get into it. The main thing that bothers me is the way the whole plot was planned out to begin with. Julia has to break into the laird’s castle to get a contract that would bind her to Ian. However, no one, save for the parties who didn’t want her with him, knew about it. So was her risk of exposing its existence really worth the possibility of any one of the others finding out about it on their own? It’s like digging up a body in your old backyard one late night so the new tenants don’t come across it one day. Do you get what I’m trying to say?
So that kept me occupied, spending time better left for enjoying the book itself, but no. The dialogue was okay. It wasn’t engaging when they weren’t fighting or enjoying sexy time, but that just may be a personal matter. The ending was a bit disappointing. Half the men are lured away from the castle to find their beloved cousin and leave her completely unprotected? WTF? I mean I guess you could say they thought she’d be safe in their very intimidating and impenetrable castle, but still. He’s so anal with her whereabouts that I found it hard to believe he’d just go and leave her alone. Too weird.
Overall this was a good book. I really, really adored the thought of a film production company giving these shifters a reason to act out things better left in the past. And Highlander shifters!!! Eeekk!! I don’t come across these often, so it’s always a joy to read these type of genres. It’s a book I recommend because even if I couldn’t connect with the characters or the plot in general, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t love the shit out of this thing. It actually had its moments with the humor, was pretty suspenseful, and the first few chapters are just too glorious of a shifter romance in Scotland to not check out.
