Dear Berkley: I believe you are making a ton of money off Lora Leigh's work. Please spend a bit of that profit hiring a better proofing editor. Print and kindle versions are missing at least 2-3 pages of her storyline on page 300 destroying any hope of pulling off a credible climax to the book. Lora Leigh's books are worthy of better. When I read them, I immerse myself in the Breed world and any mistake on your part pulls me from the story (bad bad), had me rereading to see if I missed something (no), and then having to use my own imagination to fill in the blanks (irritating). Hence, see one disappointed customer that is ticked she paid 8 bucks for a book that's ratings are being destroyed by your error. Do better next time. Sincerely, disgruntled customer
Dear Lora Leigh: I love your Breed world. You have a fan for life for this series. Good, bad, ugly - I buy these books. Word of advice: Please take a moment to edit and track your storyline. My first complaint: Mica and Navarro do not talk to each other to resolve any major emotional difficulty. You did an excellent job of putting their emotions out there and letting them bleed, but you didn't have them talk to each other for a resolution that would allow them a deep, intimate emotional connection. Throughout the story they bicker and have irrelevant dialogue. Characters must change and Navarro does, but he never confides in Mica. Instead, they had fabulous sex multiple times (my compliments on that) and Mica settles for "I Love You" and we're done. No, we are not. To top that off, you allow Cassie to hijack the story at the end instead of allowing your characters to perform the central action, then add a useless epilogue that did nothing to resolve these problems. Further, I never got the urgency or the plot behind why the bad guys wanted Mica so bad. As a hostage for trade, that didn't work so well. Also, I suspect something was intended to threaten Cassie, but that information didn't come across. Those reasons needed to be layered better to pull off the utter threat and urgency of the first twenty pages of the book. I waited and waited to see that and didn't. Also, I'm so sorry to say this - the Brandemire plot with all of Sanctuary's spies made the Breeds look weak and incompetent and it was annoying as heck. Frankly, I gave a sigh of relieve that he died and you'll move on to something else in the next book. That said, my compliments on the physical relationship between Navarro and Mica - well written as always. Sincerely, your loyal fan
Note to readers: Of all the problems, the Berkley issue with the copy edits was the MOST annoying, so be prepared when you pick up this book. There's great sex, lots of action, a huge mistake and no real emotional resolution.
