This week's review is over the first book in the "Red Rock Pass" series by the writing team that makes up Moira Rogers (the same writing team that is responsible for the Kit Rocha "Beyond" series).
This review is, again, a few months in the making, so before my review, here is the book's Goodreads description:
Keith Winston is tired of fighting. The war between werewolves and wizards rages on in Europe, but he's come home to Red Rock, Montana in hopes of finding a bit of peace. Instead he finds more strife as he struggles against the pack’s dictates that he resume his place as the alpha’s right hand man.
When he rescues a new wolf on the run, he knows his instant attraction to her could cause trouble. What he doesn't expect is to find himself embroiled in another battle that goes against all his instincts—and his heart.
Abigail Adler learned about the existence of werewolves only when she became one. With her life is threatened by a corrupt alpha, she flees to the only sanctuary she knows: Red Rock. While she’s grateful for the pack’s protection, she chafes under its unbreakable rules of conduct—except when it comes to submitting to the passion Keith stirs in her.
Then her tormentor kidnaps her sister in an attempt to lure her out of hiding. To save her, Abby and Keith must be willing to do the very thing that could get them all killed—break all of the rules.
I read this book in July when the authors announced that the first books in all their series (Kit Rocha included for those of you interested) would be available for free in ebook format. Now, the Moira Rogers paranormal romances are hit or miss with me.
This is more of miss.
While I gave the book three stars, it wasn't my favorite by them. The sex seemed thrown in and didn't fit with the build up and afterwards the characters had a forced element to them. Like their interactions were trying to be natural and the dialogue was unnatural at times. Somehow the storyline rushed before things could develop as intricately as they could have been, but the book seemed to drag.
Since the book is available for free, I recommend it if you're interested in reading something from these authors. Do I personally think I will continue with the series? Probably not.
