This one was not my favourite book of the series. The plot dragged. The characters seemed a little under developed. Alex, the Breedmate in this story, seemed a little unrealistic. She seemed to accept the Breed's existence and the fact that she is a Breedmate a little too easily. She didn't ask questions. She didn't try to deny the fact that she was a Breedmate. She just accepted it.

It was still a good read but not my favourite of the series.

by William J. Rehder and Gordon Dillow

Started: April 22, 2011
Finished: April 26, 2011

Rehder's memoir of 30-plus years in the FBI's Los Angeles bank robbery investigation unit. This is one of the better retired FBI agent memoirs I've read. Rehder has some good stories to tell and doesn't come off as a douchebag, a common problem in these books. 287 pages. Grade: A-
