I said in my review for the previous book that I have mixed feelings about this spin-off series, and the pattern of ups and downs continues because I liked this one more than the last.

There are still problematic and frustrating things in regards to sex, gender, stereotypes, etc. I still hate that Kelsey’s inner she-wolf literally NEEDS sex to not go berserk. I still am just not feeling this romance. But there was less focus on sex this time, at least, so I wasn’t as bothered.

As for what I liked, there was lots of Little Lee—he’s so cute! And the plot was good. I definitely got more into the book as we got deeper into the plot and mystery. In addition to having its own plot, this one also set up a bunch of stuff to come, and I’m happy to know that the open threads from Thieves have not been forgotten since I really want to know how those things will turn out!

Overall this was a middle of the road book for me with a fairly balanced amount of likes and dislikes, but I still feel too invested in some of the characters and the overall story to stop reading, and I really am looking forward to the next book.

*This is a spin-off series, and I highly HIGHLY recommend starting with Steal the Light. The original characters have a heavy presence, and I don’t think this spin-off series will be as enjoyable if you haven’t read the original one.*

*Rating: 3 Stars // Read Date: 2018 // Format: eBook*

    Interesting that there are some books you really don’t like and then some you do! I don’t think I’d like that romance or how those problematic things are treated either 🙁 Well I love the twilight saga but it is major problematic and I also really hated new moon…

      Yeah this series is all over the place for me lol. Problematic things are really frustrating, but sometimes books or series are still enjoyable if they have a good story or characters.
