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 (
). I guess I was missing "something" that would make me care for this couple.
Also, I kept wondering about the whole werewolf part.
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.
