and read this book Even though I wasn t interested in a gift female I have to say that LD still brought a really good story the world building was great and the incorporation of the side characters were great This book was a Ranchers Refuge (Whisper Falls, lot different than the other books in that we don t get aot of external problems This book focuses almost completely on Shadow and beauty and them being together the whole time It was interesting to see how the gift females were treated and that while the species were trying their best to protect the gift females they were actually giving them a pretty prisons and treating them Last Seen... like kids After reading this book I dislike Kit and as always Breeze was great So yes the story was good but I couldn t connect with the heroine

governments do they have a meeting to discuss whether or not they will allow Beauty to have sex Kinda reminds me of some old white guys who form special committees in the government to make decisions

governmentLuckily for Beauty and Shadow they vote to allow them to have sex Thank goodness If there had just been one vote swinging the other way they might have had to stay away from each other for ever Cuz we all know that if the government told us that we can t have sex we would all cease and desist immediatelySo they go to a cabin in the woods for some alone time There is some drama but most of the book is them discussing their feelings sigh I don t evenike to discuss my own feelings Treacherous Is the Night (Verity Kent, let alone read about other people s feeling discussionsThe only thing that saved this story for me was an awesome shoot out in the woods and Breeze who is by far one of the best characters in this series Good thing Beauty was a bad ass because Shadow could not get it together It really was a sweet and fun book Ioved the way the NSO came together to support them It was beautiful Very good book A Miracle, A Universe like all the others I m really inove with all

Aguecheeks Beef, Belchs Hiccup, and Other Gastronomic Interjections lucky with the man she was gifted to so I understand she was not uiteike Tiny or Half pint which is disappointing because I really enjoyed reading about a Gift female Doesn t seem Black Metropolis, Vol. 2 likely Tiny and Half pint will get a book Maybe a different Gift female Though I don t think we ve heard of may others Maybe a Gift with a Task force guy That d be a cool twist DI was slightly happy that Moon s book was nextoved him ever since Slade but I thought it wouldn t be as intense as the others because of how relaxed
