Why I read this book: I enjoyed True Knight.
When I moved to Prosper Woods, California, a couple of weeks ago, I’d had big plans for a quiet life. Let’s just say, things haven’t exactly turned out the way I expected they would. For one thing, as new sheriff, I hadn’t planned on investigating a murder the day after my arrival. For another thing, no one told me supernatural creatures existed. I didn’t believe it at first, but when Vincent Lasco suddenly smiled at me with a mouth full of fangs, things got interesting.
Quiet small-town life indeed!
The moment I decided to take Sheriff Romeo Harmon home for a roll in the sheets, I knew hiding my true nature was a huge mistake. Then again, things never turn out the way I expect. The simple life of anonymity I’d hoped to have in Prosper Woods has blown up in my face in the most poetic and spectacular way. Not only that, the guy isn’t even aware that he has secrets of his own. How a guy could have lived all his life not knowing what he was, seems nearly impossible but in his case, I know it’s true.
Supernaturals are everywhere!
The town of Prosper Woods has a couple of new residents who at first glance, seem very unsuited for small town life. Before long though, I realized they were right for the town…probably the only right thing about this weird place. Surprisingly, they fit right in.
Things are about to get interesting!
I’m back in Prosper Woods. Our new sheriff Romeo is investigating a murder and he’s starting to sense there’s something different about his co-workers. Perhaps about most people in town. And then there’s his boyfriend who’s also new in town. A few people have already discerned Vincent’s true nature and to say they’re not happy about it is an understatement.
But this is Prosper Woods where anything can happen.
Things seem fairly normal – or as normal as they can be when surrounded by supes. Romeo has discovered – quite spectacularly – that he’s a supe. His true nature was never revealed when he was a cop in LA but up here in Northern California? Surrounded by all that nature? He’s in the know now.
More characters were properly introduced in this book, and although I love Sally the deputy, it’s Precious who stole my heart. And made me laugh.
I learned that werewolves have to shift during a full moon – something I didn’t know. But I’m still newer in the paranormal realm.
Romeo has his work cut out for him just as Vincent’s past shows up and things get chaotic in his life. There’s plenty of action inside and outside the bedroom and certainly enough to keep my interested. I can’t wait for the conclusion of the series.
John Solo narrates these books and I think he was a great choice to helm this series. Okay, off to the next book.
