I loved this story I could find nothing to criticize in any way and I was happy about that. The plot was great, the writing was great and the pace was just right.  Then we meet Bailey who I also loved. I loved how Bailey stood up to her foster father and told him if he ever hurt or touched another foster child she would be back.. I also loved Tristan and how he is willing to teach Bailey the were shifters way. . I loved how Tessa and Andrei were together as well as Joleen and Luke as well as Bailey and Tristan. All fit together and each had their . romance. I just loved this story and all it said. It was an easy read. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I highly recommend.
