Some people have everything figured out—Andrea Nash is not one of those people. After being kicked out of the Order of the Knights of Merciful Aid, Andrea’s whole existence is in shambles. All she can do is try to put herself back together, something made easier by working for Cutting Edge, a small investigative firm owned by her best friend, Kate Daniels.
When several shapeshifters working for Raphael Medrano—the male alpha of the Clan Bouda, as well as Andrea’s former lover—die unexpectedly at a dig site, Andrea is assigned to investigate…and must work with Raphael. As her search for the killer leads her into the secret underbelly of supernatural Atlanta, Andrea knows that dealing with her feelings for Raphael might have to take a back seat to saving the world…
This was supposed to be a novella, but I discovered that it was a very long one and it helped a lot to fulfill this world, I liked Andrea for her wit and attitude, but Raphael is also a very handsome and nice person, he helped Andrea to understand her other side and after some time they finally managed to discover a nice relationship, but ever since their fall out and Andrea disappearance things are not the same, so it was great for us to have a full book with them.
Andrea has come a full 360 with her attitude towards the boudas and I really liked the way she handled the pack and the other boudas, because she’s beastkin and is not really a part of them, but after some needed break, she decided to claim her inner beast and now the only thing missing is Raphael.
I understand his need to fear, because Andrea was never really sure of their relationship, but now things are different and their life are in danger. It was really nice to see they battle and discover a new life together. They deserved a full novel, because Kate and Curran always put other people on the sideline, but their characters are great and it was an awesome book.
