DNF d at 30% I m stunned And shocked And befuddled How did this happen This was supposed to be one hell of an MM romance read filled with amazing paranormal aspects and a world building romance that will blow a reader s mindrightWell no At least not for me and that s unfortunate because I contemplated buying the whole series in paperback and having these fantastic looking covers in my library But I tried and I really didn t see anything special about thisFirst I have to say that I expected this to be a lot serious The voice of the narrator instead ives place to humour and teasingwhen it s not necessarily the time And in Wicked City (Wicked City, general I couldn t embark into the story that I thought will be intense with that kind of atmosphereiven But that s personal You may find it to be to your likingSecond there s this personality changing from the point where Dex was still a normal detective to where his working along THIRDS It s like someone took off 10 years of his life since he became a teenager again Because that s how he was acting Always joking around feeling like he owns the place when he barely knows anyone or the around And sincerely was the cheese scene obligatory I cannot believe what childish reactions followedThen there s the slow pacing The whole story seems to have been plotted in 2x slow speed It was tiring to always wait for something of importance to happen I felt like the author was trying to build some sort of The Celestial Selenite Scry (The Moon God Trilogy, ground for her world because there was a lot of information on it but I seriously was burning for some real action The author could have maybe left those explications for also other scenes not mostly all at once I m saying this due to the fact that it bored me but maybe that was the only way it could have worked for the authorNow we are at the part that I cannot believe didn t provoke any single emotion inside me the romance What romance There was no romance At least not up to where Iot It was mostly teasing but barely because there was no slow burn There really wasn t I was searching for it and after each chapter I told myself that it s impossible for it to not be right I didn t find any But the biggest problem for me was how the author handled the way Dex and Sloane met It was that childish cheese scene When they were fighting I thought it was interesting but that scene really made me think WTH and somehow I didn t believe seeing them as a couple to be exciting any There was principally something about their personality being so divergent from one another I think that was also the cause I usually don t mind that but in this the combination was missing some chemistry in my opinionWell I am in the real minority right now so I don t feel like warning you about this But I uess if you keep in mind that the ambience is not very serious up to where I ot that is and that the romance will I figure come way later in the story things should Americas sewing book go better for you than they went for me Hell High Water would make a kick ass movieThis book read like a fast paced flick but contained certain elements I dislike in the MM romanceenreFocus on action vs romanceMany secondary characters that drew the attention away from the MCsVery little steam on page there was one count it ONE sex scene and it was over before I blinkedLots and lots of bantering to the detriment of realistic dialogueInfo dumping to set up the premiseAn unhinged rather obvious villain who confesses to the crime as an easy way to resolve the weak mysteryAn asshole of an MC Sloane blew hot and cold and treated Dex like shit and Dex kept taking itNo resolution at the end with a cliffie to boot Secret Santa (Bluegrass Brothers, glares I know it s a series but must we be so fucking obvious about itAnd yet I miving it a solid 3 starsWhy you ask I enjoyed Charlie Cochet s writing and I like the idea of cat shifters Therians and the politics surrounding this alternate world The idea behind the THIRDS is cool I mean come on orgeous men and women walking around wearing sleek black clothes facing danger sparring and showering together what s not to like While the story dragged on too long and contained too much filler parts of it were uite funny and engaging Dex is also all kinds of awesome I loved his sense of humor and his interactions with his brother He should have made Sloane beg though I appreciate that the females in this book are smart and It
