My rating: 3 of 5 stars
How to begin? Well, lets start with the fact that I really like the series and the angle which the author presents the shifter world. The author incorporates a little myth and other elements that help to separate this story from the others that are out right now. To me, the difference is a big PLUS considering most shifter tales can get a little too predictable. In the case of the Cougarville series there are enough little twists and turns that will have the reader coming back to see what happens next.
The male leads ... the alphas of the series are great. All three leads in this series have been compassionate, patient and understanding. Reese Cooper the fox shifter is the most patient of them all. His character had no choice but to be patient because his counterpart (rejuvenating Jo Farrell) is very, VERY irritating. While reading, I tried to keep in mind that her character was coming from a place of hurt and fear. Jo was just so ... I don't know ... distrustful and selfish. Jo made the second heroine in this series that I didn't really care for. Secondary characters like Fiona (the apothecary) more than make up the difference and I am really excited to see more of this character and find out more of her secrets. There are other secondary characters being introduced that could possibly have their own story soon and it will be interesting to see what the author does with them.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
