3.5 Stars to The Shifter’s Secret Baby written by T. S. Ryder.
Eric and Kayla…….
This is a very short, sweet story. Eric is a billionaire alpha wolf shifter. Kayla is a curvy human with insecurities that caused her to run from a future she could have had with Eric. Three years prior to the beginning of this book, they were together for a brief love affair. Eric expected Kayla to be with him forever. I’m going to be honest, I did not like Kayla. She made choices I didn’t approve of and her character was overly self-depreciating.
Kayla let her insecurities and what others said about her convince her she was not good enough for Eric, who was an alpha. So she ran. After she found out she was pregnant, she still stayed away. It’s a matter of preference for me that I do not like a heroine that keeps her pregnancy hidden; doesn’t give a chance for her baby to know his/her father. That premise just rubs me the wrong way.
Three years after they were together, Eric and Kayla meet by chance. To say, she is both shocked and dismayed and even a little hopeful, is an understatement. Naturally, Eric was shocked as well. He is upset at Kayla for leaving him the way she did and even more so when he finds out he has a daughter.
Luckily, the angst between them is resolved quickly and a new threat arises in the form of disgruntled vampires. There was some light violence and suspense to give the story a bit of excitement.
Eric’s brother is a secondary character that I just adored. He was sweet and funny and very protective. When we first met him, I had hopes he might get his own story. However due to circumstances happening, I’m not sure that will happen. Oh well.
So overall, I enjoyed this book. The reason I didn’t rate it higher was due to lack of character development and a lot of typos. Would I read more from this author? Yes, definitely. The writing flowed well and the pace was steady. I do believe that the reason for lack of development may have been due to the fact that this book was only 63 pages.
