Like watching an episode of Time Team. I don't think the author quite pulled this off but I'm sure she had a ball writing it because of her passion for dinosaurs. Even though it's in the first person POV of Nick, I didn't connect with him at all. Nor was I sold on the romance. It was low key and started late in the story. Hunter, Nick's love interest, seemed to have a personality change between one page and the next; going from adversary to devoted lover with no real reason given. There was actually a lot more chemistry between Nick and his bestie, Boner. A generous 3 stars.
