My Review: This is my first time reading a book by Bianca D'Arc, and I will say I'm intrigued enough to read more. If you want to give her a shot, trust me, there is PLENTY to choose from. I enjoyed Bearliest Catch, but over all, there was no wow-factor here for me. But I've already got my eye on a few of her other works, because I liked her voice and sense of humor.
I think what didn't work for me here was not the story itself, but the overwhelming feeling of being told what was happening, instead of being shown. The first third of the book was heavy on the backstory, but I think the history could have been worked in a little more organically than it was. As the book progressed, and we got more into the here-and-now, this was less of an issue, though still present.
I liked the authors voice, and she had some great characters - though unfortunately I preferred the secondary characters to the main couple. I'd gladly look into some of the previous or future books in this series.
Cover Lovin': Whoa boy, look at that arm!
Recommendation: The author catches you up quickly at the beginning, so no prior knowledge is necessary.
Final Rating: THREE out of FIVE stars (3/5). This was a fun, quick read. If you like shifters, and the small-town feel, make sure to give Grizzly Cove a chance!
