My rating: 4 of 5 stars
3.5 Stars to The Alpha’s Secret Family by Jessie Lane.
Dia and Stone…..
This book is short and cute. As an overall, I enjoyed it.
Dia is a human who has caught the eyes of Stone Blaylock, an alpha wolf shifter, Stone knows that Dia is his true mate but because she is human she knows nothing about mates or shifters. Stone tries to get her to go on a date with him but she plays hard to get. After a week she gives in and they quickly become a couple. From that point on the book skipped forward a lot. Too much actually. For that reason I could not connect with the characters. Unfortunately one of the moments that was skipped over was their first time of intimacy. I was disappointed by that. There was a lot of time jumping so we did not get to experience much of their relationship development.
There was a suspense aspect going on and because of that, dangerous events occurred. I won’t go into the details because the blurb says enough.
As a result of the danger, Stone and Dia were separated for most of the second half of the book. I would have liked to see more interaction between them.
At the end of the book, when the danger is over, I felt that there wasn’t enough closure. There was not a sufficient explanation for why certain things happened and I finished this book with questions.
That said, I know I ranted a bit but I did enjoy the story as an overall. The epilogue was cute as well. There is definitely a happy ending for Dia and Stone.
I definitely want to read more from this author.
