Review: Animal Attraction by Patricia Rosemoor
Detective Ethan Grainger is horrified when a public official is found dead in the park, killed by an animal. He immediately fears it’s a shifter kill and heads for The Ark, where he seeks out Nuala Lazare, a Kindred pregnant by Ethan’s late partner Shade. He’d come to terms with Chicago’s supernatural underground, but because Nuala holds him responsible for Shade’s death—and because he is attracted to her—he’s avoided her until now.
Ethan is the last man Nuala wants to see, and she has enough to deal with being near term and realizing her fatherless child will be a half-breed like her brother Luc, who experienced tremendous prejudice and guilt while growing up. She plans to move from The Ark to live like a human for her daughter.
Ethan must keep Shade’s child from being corrupted by the criminal element of the Kindred Lazare clan. Which means he must get close to Nuala—not an easy task. As they get to know each other, their attraction becomes unbearable. Will Ethan keep his loyalty to his murdered partner or succumb to the irresistible temptation of his chemistry with Nuala?
I love trying new authors or ones that I haven't read in a very long time. I know I've read Rosemoor before just not what. This story sounded good so I thought I'd give it a try.
I was so excited to read it but sadly it was just so-so. Not really great but also not horrible either.
I just really had trouble caring about the characters, something that's a must for my books. If you can't connect with the characters you won't be able to enjoy the story. The book can be a well written story but if you don't get into the characters your not in the story.
There are parts of the story that were enjoyable and I saw flashes of what I would have liked in characters but they had trouble keeping me there.
The story is well written and because there are parts I liked I kept reading it. The idea of the story is good too. I really liked that part of it. Maybe I should have started from book one and then I would have been more invested by the time I read this books. Food for thought.
Will I try another book by her? I can't say yes or no for sure. Time will tell.
Have you read Animal Attraction or any other book by Patricia Rosemoor? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
