Miki Kendrick: woman with a high I.Q and a ballsy attitude paired with a mouth that will not stay shut when it needs to. This pretty much is what Miki Kendrick is. Conall simply could not stand a chance. You see their relationship start out in the first book but here is the background on their story provided by Goodreads: How much trouble can one small female be to a modern-day shapeshifting Viking? Well, it really depends on local gun laws. Conall Viga-Feilan, direct descendent of Viking shifters, never thought he’d meet a female strong enough to be his mate. He especially didn’t think a short, viper-tongued human would ever fit the bill. But Miki Kendrick isn’t some average human. With an IQ off the charts and a special skill with weapons of all kinds, Miki brings the big blond pooch to his knees – and keeps him there.
Miki’s way too smart to ever believe in love and she knows a guy like Conall could only want one thing from her. But with the Pack’s enemies on her tail and a few days stuck alone with the one man who makes her absolutely wild, Miki is about to discover how persistent one Viking wolf can be.
So now you know the basis of this universe. These people can shift from human to animal and back again. And no, they are not werewolves. This has nothing to do with a lunar cycle. These people just have the magical ability to shift into animal form. So this does not make them all human and does not make them all animal. It is really a combination of the two. This is really shown in their characteristics and really how they act. I really like this series. The women are strong, independent, and really don’t need a man. They are not simpering morons that can’t find their way out of a paper bag. These women are more likely the ones to wash blood off their hands after winning a fight. This story allows Miki and Conall’s relationship grow. In the first book, Miki pretty much ran away from this viking (her nickname for him). And well, for Conall it was more like love at first sight. Poor thing. Their relationship is hysterical. I could not stop laughing at some parts. You simple have to read it to find out.
As for the sex, really they are animals. Reading these books always remind me of this song my friend sings at karaoke, “You and me, baby ain’t nothing by mammals, so let’s do it like they do on the discovery channel.” That pretty much sums up the sex scenes. But I do have to let you know that it is not sex for the sake of sex. There is an emotional component that goes along with the sex.
Overall, I give this novel 5 out 5! Simply fantastic! I will review the last one in this series shortly, and eventually I will review the rest of her series. So I hope you enjoyed this review as well as this series. If you love it as much as I do, I recommend you read The Mane Event. That is the start of the Pride series.
