The Awakening: Aidan by Abby
I am a true fan of paranormal book and especially shifter book, but this one left me on the fence. I am torn on how to rate this book; I really like the mate for life. I was not particularly fond of the wording in this book; it was almost like it was a play on J.R. Wards Black Dagger Brotherhood, which this book does not compare to. I just couldn’t get into it the word play in this book. The characters were ok, but nothing special. I really enjoyed the author’s other book better, Extreme Love.
Synopsis:Is the gift of eternal love a blessing or a curse?
After years of counseling grieving shifters, psychiatrist and half-shifter, Dr. Jaylin Avgar has become jaded on shifter mating. She wants to marry a human and forget about the love for eternity crap. Then she meets Aidan O’Connell, an infuriatingly laid back shifter who represents everything she doesn’t want. Yet, the more he pursues her, the more she craves a future with him. Only one thing stands in her way: death. Can she overcome her fear of losing Aidan to the one guarantee in life?
Millionaire consultant, Aidan O’Connell knows he’ll one day meet a woman who’ll awaken an unrelenting mating instinct. Unfortunately, that woman is Jaylin, who has no qualms about telling him that he and his so-called eternity can shove it. When she pushes him away, he takes a drastic step so she can no longer escape. The close proximity throws the instinct into overdrive. Can he control the need engrained in him until he’s certain she will reciprocate the bond, or will a moment of weakness doom him to hell on earth?
