Daring the Wolf (Skylar M. Cates)

Daring the Wolf - Skylar M. Cates

2.75 stars rounded up.

Definitely different than Cates' usual stories. Daring the Wolf didn't shy away from both erotica and violence. While I didn't really mind the numerous rough sex scenes and the kinks (I've been warned) but the world-built and the relationship progress were not the best coming from her.

Honestly, I didn't really feel Gabe and Ethan *shrugs*. Considering that Gabe and Ethan had history -- which makes this a "second chance" theme -- I thought it was lacking (unresolved) tension between them. Plus Ethan ended up forgiving Gabe quite fast, with a way that I thought was rather ridiculous (

Really, just let Gabe bottom for you because it was a way to show "trust"?

). I guess I was missing "something" that would make me care for this couple.

Also, I kept wondering about the whole werewolf part.

So if being a werewolf is genetic, what could trigger the gene? Since I assume not all people with the werewolf gene was turned into werewolves. Plus I was a bit annoyed that the name of the gene was mentioned only once, but not explained later on, like it was suddenly forgotten.

So yeah, not my favorite of hers at the moment. Having said that, if Sebastian's story is written next, I might return to read his. Especially if his mate is Presley. That should be interesting.
