Tatum’s perfect, well-planned life crashed one piece at a time. After small mistakes led to bigger ones, she’s ready to give up and walk away from the only dream she ever knew. A trip to a New Mexico retreat sounds like the best way to pull herself together. Then she met Connor, a hot falcon shifter who shows her a whole new world full of possibilities she never imagined. Connor’s falcon claimed her at first glance. Now faced with her inner demons, can she learn to forgive herself and stop the cycle of self-destruction? Will his love be enough to calm the anxiety and fears that prevent her from finding the life she never knew she wanted?
The shifter world has always fascinated me, but all too often are we thrown into bears and wolves. So, seeing a Falcon Shifter stirred something in me.
I am pleased with the overall roundness of this novel. I enjoyed the chemistry between are characters the growth that occurred between them on their short time frame. While the story proceeded at a fast pace it seemed Wilson was still able to conjure up a bit of a cat and mouse chase. And the chase was thoroughly enjoyed.
I can see this being a series that could easily be swept away if not handled correctly, but Wilson seems to have honed in on her craft. Setting it up book one with one conclusion while leaving the door open for a following story.
The added twist of the townspeople was somewhat predictable but still as the unraveling happened it flow meticulously from one scene into the next. I think what surprised me most thought as the open forum between Connor and Tatum. While Tatum was expecting, she asked questions, she showed an emotion other than lust.
While most authors I read in the shifter world seem to just cave or go with the flow Tatum didn’t. And that was what I loved about this the most. The authentic emotions that were expressed.
