Since i was absent last week ( hey it was my birthday and i didn't really had time for me so for the blog even less sadly) i decided not to wait and to introduce you to the second series i'm giving you my opinion on: The Big Bad Bite series by Jessie Lane. it's not a new series and i've been wanting to try it for quite a moment ( even got book 1 in my pile) but forgot about it however a new release will be out soon so it's time to get back to track so here is my opinion on book 1.
Publisher: Whiskey Girls Publishing
Genre: paranormal romance, shifters, werewolvesSource: bought
Interesting....while i didn't like the main female character and didn't really warm up to her i really enjoyed the universe and some secondary characters making me want to read more but let see that in more detail.
Adam is an alpha wolf, from what we can gather he did have difficulties while growing up because his wolf is really strong and present which isn't well accepted. However, despite all that he is a very loyal and caring leader and as we discover a quite patient mate to be, very tolerant and accepting . Really it wasn't hard to come to love him and support him even if i regret the fact we didn't get more insights on his childhood but hopefully we could still learn more in the rest of the serie.
Jenna is the opposite...she isn't bad per say but having spent her life sheltered she is ignorant of a lot of things regarding shifters and she is definitively too self centered for my taste. I get that she wants to be independent, to prove herself etc but she is so selfish at time that i wanted to shake or strangle her. She may be powerful but she doesn't look for others than herself. While at first she doesn't understand why Adam is reacting as he is and could be confused while she does learn the reason she acts like it's nothing, no matter the risk for others, risk she perfectly understand. No, trust issues aside that's what she wants when she wants....she must have gotten that from her mother but definitively can't like her at this point even if she does act at the end.
Secondary characters...there you have so many that's it's not hard to find at least one you want to support and learn more about him or her.
the demon is funny. he is a police officer and was surprisingly good to Jenna.
he sure made me curious. That being said i think i want more of the tigers
though.... that family is fascinating and funny despite being highly dangerous
and still quite mysterious. There is Alec, not sure what his real job is but he
fight in underground battle which help him to be well informed. Then it's
Gage....we know little except that he is fiercely protective of his family (
even Alec while they bicker all the time) and that he must be in some kind of
elite army/ security shifter agency....all top secret of course but with a lot
of interesting toys or electronics to be successful in highly dangerous
mission..... i so want to learn more about him. Then you have the sister lulu,
we only hear about her so far, and even
better the Russian grandma.....oh that one will make you smile for sure Kent
I also found quite funny that if some groups are trying to impose to shifters to stay with their own ( wolves with wolves, tiger with tigers etc, etc) not mixing between shifters of different origin or worse with other paranormal. Both pack masters we learn about did the opposite, once with a demon, then with a tiger... It's promising some sparks. There are still so much to learn about this world but at the same time nothing is missing preventing us to enjoy this story fully so it's really well done.
There is a small cliffhanger but nothing major we do get the essential for this story to be happy and it just make us impatient to read book two ( with tigers!!!!!). There is a major main plot taking place along the whole series so that isn't solved yet of course but each book has it's own story which feel complete so it was really no problem for me.
If you want a good paranormal romance you can try this one
