First in a free paranormal series. While I appreciate the fact the author has written several long books in this series, I couldn't rate them any higher than 3 stars. It's amazing how many words can be written when in fact NOTHING happens. I actually skipped from 2000 locations to 5000 locations on my kindle (approx 150 pages) and was able to pick up the story like I'd only turned one page. The overly prolonged relationship conflict relies on lies and mis-communication between the MC's and the heroine is too passive and martyr-like for my taste.
