April Frost is a compassionate young woman with a steady job and ambitious goals. But the harder she runs away from her past, the more it threatens to destroy her. When three strangers enter her life, April is forced to face her demons, and it's a battle she may not win. Private investigators in the Breed world are men who take risks, and Reno Cole is no exception. As a Shifter, he's expected to control his inner animal. But lately his wolf has been venturing dangerously close to the city, and he's about to discover why. When Reno is reintroduced to a family friend, the attraction is immediate. April captivates him with her secretive eyes and resilient spirit. She's also in trouble, and despite the fact that she's a human, Reno can't turn his back on her. April is caught between two worlds: One that threatens to bury her dreams and another that could fulfill them. Can she trust the wolf at her door and find the courage to overcome her demons?
SIX MONTHS by Dannika Dark is the second novel in the paranormal romance series Seven. Danger, romance, miscommunication and a sexy motorcycle riding shifter made for an enjoyable tale despite some issues with our sweet heroine. Narrated by Nicole Poole, SIX MONTHS was an enjoyable listen.
Coffee dates with SIX MONTHS
- First Date: We first met April Frost in SEVEN. She worked in the candy shop with Lexi and is now the manager. April lives outside of town in the trailer of her recently departed grandmother. She is quirky, sweet, and slightly damaged. Despite loving her romance novels she doesn’t believe in happily ever after and depends on no one. This makes her fearlessly independent, but her inability to confide in others will put her in danger. Reno Cole, the oldest shifter of the pack, is a private investigator who finds Lexi’s friend refreshingly intriguing. He is quiet, soft-spoken and a bit of a loner but thanks to his wolf he gets to know her. We meet the first threat that presents itself to April. He actions had me shaking my head. I understood her, but that didn’t stop me from wanting to slap her on the back of the head Gibb’s style. (NCIS tv show character)
- Second date: We meet April’s best friend Trevor and witness the attraction developing between April and Reno. April was a real struggle for me. In some ways I understood her, and in others, I only wanted to scream. Now, Reno, I understood. He is pack- which makes him protective and loyal. He’s quiet but shows his feelings through simple acts like fixing a leak or remembering what you like. We see April get out of one jam, only to get in another, and still, she tells no one. I kept waiting for the next ball to drop. We had an interesting time at a Pack party that had me giggling. It also allowed us to catch up with characters. Something is off with Trevor; I am just not sure what.
- Third Date: Confessions, conflicts, and misunderstanding between the pack and April. Ugh. As frustrated as I was Dark kept things interesting and had me trying to figure out how everything would work out. Or more precisely what April would do to make it worse. The girl does have some backbone, but there is pride, and then there is stupidity. She crossed that line. Despite my struggles, we do see character growth and Reno delivered the swoon. My date left me smiling and eager to being FIVE WEEKS.
I like Nicole Poole as the narrator for this series. Her male voices are well done, and she has managed to make each character’s voice distinct. While I struggled with the heroine in SIX MONTHS, I still managed to enjoy the overall tale and recommend the series to fans of shifters, snark, and romance.Despite some issues, I enjoyed listening to Six Months by Dannika Dark and recommend the Seven series Click To Tweet
