I usually enjoy this authors books so much she is top of my " buy printed copy" list. But not this time. This reader feels the author is as bored writing this as the reader is trying to read it. Romance? Couldn't find it. Sexy, hot scenes? None. Just a bunch of contrived plot lines designed to pull in old characters from previous books. Where is the tightly plotted, vibrant writing and dialogue of books like Pack Challenge? In a word...disappointing.
