What is not to love about this series?
It is such a lighthearted wonderful paranormal romance series. The perfect introduction to the genre and the perfect change of pace to those that read the heavier ones.
I would not recommend reading this one without having read the previous books in this series, you will miss some important bits, starting with the main reason Jules and Ruben are travelling together. Much of this book focuses on that parallel story, so it won't read as fluidly without it.
That thought aside, this is another fantastic book by the lovely Juliette Cross. For very personal reasons book 4 wasn't for me, so I was ecstatic and super happy when by page 20 I already knew I was going to love this one.
Ruben was a delight. I loved his passion, his determination, his possessiveness, and most of all his devotion and loyalty. There are devoted alpha males in a lot of romance books, but one as loyal as Ruben? Nope. Not often at all. I won't spoil by saying what exactly makes me say that, but it took me by surprise.
Jules is Jules? LOL I don't know what to say really, I always liked her, but she was never a favorite. Which is funny because I know she (and Ruben) are the favorite to many of Juliette's readers, if is not most. Jules is a very strong character, sure of herself, and deserving of her title. Which brings us to the plot as a whole...
Another reviewer described it "Witches against bigotry" and I thought that was an absolutely delightful and 100% accurate way to describe it. Werewolves deserve a seat at the table! And since they are my favorite paranormal creature, I don't care if this is fiction or not, GO WEREWOLVES LOL
