I thought I could read this but I can't. This story is one of the most sexist, chauvinstic and patronizing stories I have ever read.
All the male characters seem to be oh so perfect and treat their female counterparts horribly. And it's apparently okay. It'd actually be okay if they were treated as equals and the banter would also be equal but there is no banter. The male characters literally insult the females and they just take it. And you go out of your way to portray how 'smart' and 'cool' the male characters are to leave the females speechless. The female characters are hence just plain annoying and frankly pitiful.
But you see it's not their fault. It's your fault as a writer because you go out of your way to portray the males as domineering jerks and the females as stupid. And don't use the 'this is how werewolves are' excuse. This is fantasy. You can change it to be however you want. I get the point of the male being dominant and the female submissive but this is just too obvious.
I think Kellan is a great guy. He truly loves and cares about Cassie. But you are adamant on making him the bad guy. You know... It'd work if Bryan was even better but the just the fact that he's good looking and 'their wolves click' doesn't really make him better. He's still concieted and domineering. Also, if you'd just let poor Cassie and Bryan figure things out on their own instead of having everyone and their dog meddling this story just might get better.
You portray all the females as domestic. If they're not then they're the bad guys. According to you their purpose in life is to have sex and pop out kids. Contrary, to wjat you may believe I'm not some radical feminist but even I'm disappointed by this.

You should turn all these into books and a series you never know they could become a movie like fifty shades divergent or twilight they are great stories

I loved the series! At first I thought it wasn't fair in this book that Cassie was forced to go to Canada and she rebelled,(I love story characters who rebel.) but now I love the fact that everyone is together, happy, and there is no danger.

haha ryne's going to end up with a bonding ceremony. oh how the mighty black devils from the university have fallen. changing diapers and trying to keep their mates happy. if only all the women, werewolf and human, could see the playboys now. it is rather full circle though isn't it?
bryan is such a sweet young man. i love the different layers you gave him for such a young age. even with the keeping, he should how he was coming into his own place in the pack. though he didn't have such a hard time accepting the truth behind his attraction to cassie.
i will say that cassie got on my nerves at first. i kept reminding myself, she's scarred from the keeping and truly believes werewolves are horrible, uneducated, wild savages. the only person she had a family relationship with was killed before her eyes after overhearing she was one of those creatures. although i did want to smack her around and say a guy that gorgeous can't be a bad person.
i was very happy to see that aldrich got his. i feel like he kinda slipped into the mad man, crazy toward the end. as much as i disliked marla, i love that i could separate her horrible personality with her wolf as a separate entity. i loved that her wolf actually did the right thing in the end. i feel sorry for her wolf, as well as marla overall. marla was no different than a super geeky nerd born into a family of world class athletes. she had no place to fit. while i can understand being a duck among chickens, she went about it the wrong way. her greed i can't excuse, but maybe she could have tried or really talked to her alpha. idk what could have helped her. plus being mentally/emotionally abused by her dad didn't help. she was really a more complicated character than just a villain like aldrich. i think that her dying in her wolf form was much better. i feel like her wolf was set free.
oh kellen. sadly so many of us are like him. we don't really look at our mistakes until they hurt the person we care about the most. i wish i had learned more about his past. i mean i kinda didn't care too much about him. maybe i just didn't connect with him. i was however very happy to read that he was on the phone in the hospital. i'm sure his mother was very very happy to hear from him. i hope that he does find love though.
i am very pleased that the story incorporated so many of the characters from the mating and the keeping. i almost expected brandi to show up with disaster control.
you know i have never questioned the alpha male dominance of the clan hierarchy. some girls that are all feminist get angry at the fact the male is in charge. i'm kinda okay with the whole thing. it seems very natural in an 'animal' based society, if that makes any sense. it was just nice to see that melody, who lived in the 'modern' world fell into line with the rules. elise was raised as a lycan, so she's accustomed to it. have you had any negative feedback from others about this? just curious.
i guess what i really want to say is great story. as with all the other works i have read by you. they are paced nicely, with descriptive character backgrounds. you've really made me care about the people i am reading about.

Absolutely loved it!

Ughhhh Cassandra is so irksome sometime. It's offensive that she thinks of the other wolves as dirty and uncivilized. I love how sweet Bryan is even when she's being so rude. I hope she starts coming around to the fact she is a "beast" and goes to the pack in Canada. Oh! and I hope kellan doesn't die,

The other characters are well too highlighted which originally isn't bad because some stories pretty much focus solely on the main characters, and that makes the whole story a bit unrealistic and boring. However, this story, as far as I have read, talks too much about the other characters and often misses the real main ones. It's becoming more like a journal of these many people and you fail to determine which characters this story is really telling about. Narrating what is happening around the main characters is the freedom of writing in third-person but writing as far as what they are thinking and feeling seems somewhat irrelevant especially if they begin to overshadow the main ones. The story is not just suspense, it's romance too. And I keep asking, "Where is the romance?" I know I'll eventually read more of Bryan and Sandy but you have to admit the first chapters are pretty boring.
