    If you ve read PAST MY DEFENSES you know a little about who these two characters are We met Christa very briefly when she picks up her cat, Lucifer, from her brother Dane s house and we got to know Jordan a littlein depth since he s the alpha of the pack and helped the previous characters out quite a bit.I found it hilarious that Jordan s new mate turned out to be not only human, but also Dane s little sister Out of all the people in the world it could be to have it be Christa is just pu If you ve read PAST MY DEFENSES you know a little about who these two characters are We met Christa very briefly when she picks up her cat, Lucifer, from her brother Dane s house and we got to know Jordan a littlein depth since he s the alpha of the pack and helped the previous characters out quite a bit.I found it hilarious that Jordan s new mate turned out to be not only human, but also Dane s little sister Out of all the people in the world it could be to have it be Christa is just pure awesomeness I enjoyed Jordan s character before book 2 so it wasn t hard to be excited to readabout him We find out pretty quickly that Christa has multiple sclerosis and knows nothing about shifters She might be sick but she is still pretty darn kick butt She fits right into being the alpha female and she proves herself many times.The relationship between the two was pretty fun to watch Christa from the beginning wants to knowabout Jordan and be involved in his life She of course has some reservations about their mate bond and the forever of it, but takes everything pretty darn well Jordan on the other hand fights the connection at first Once he realizes he doesn t want to fight it he turns all alpha male protective, puts his foot in his mouth a few times, but you can really see the love he has for Christa.I found that there were a few slow parts in THIS WEAKNESS FOR YOU, but there is a pretty epic battle at the end that makes those slow points totally worth reading through I don t think you HAVE to read PAST MY DEFENSES to enjoy THIS WEAKNESS FOR YOU, but there will be a few points you might not totally get and book one is really good so I recommend reading it before umping in I will be on the lookout for book three This book was provided free of charge from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

    Ok this is a new author to me but I enjoy shifter tales so was curious to see what Ms Sparrow would come up with This Lycan story seems to follow on from her previous book Past My Defences as it has the same pack and characters Dane and Vanessa in it but this time it s the story of Danes human sister meeting the packs alpha Jordan and it s an almost instant imprinting that if honest I didn t really care for Christa has a natural scent that means she is compatible with Jordan and to Christa he Ok this is a new author to me but I enjoy shifter tales so was curious to see what Ms Sparrow would come up with This Lycan story seems to follow on from her previous book Past My Defences as it has the same pack and characters Dane and Vanessa in it but this time it s the story of Danes human sister meeting the packs alpha Jordan and it s an almost instant imprinting that if honest I didn t really care for Christa has a natural scent that means she is compatible with Jordan and to Christa he smells like forever I almost gave up at twenty percent in as I wasn t happy with the insane way Christa just turned up at Jordan s house not to mention that she was all over him like a rash but thankfully I ploughed on and then happily the author upped her game considerably No longer a boring chest beating werewolf romance but a well thought out suspense driven story and even better the hero and heroine were kept apart which allowed this reader to believe they could really and truly form a much stronger attachment to each other Ok so that probably doesn t sound like much of a romance but when you factor in humans hunting the Lycans you begin to see a very interesting story Jordan has had experience of what they call Poachers in the past and when a fellow Lycan is found brutally murdrered his tracking skills are called for Leaving his new very new mate at home is the hardest thing for him but maintaining phone contact with her should work , well it would if the phones worked Christa is not the usual perfect heroine and in point of fact has multiple sclerosis MS so when Jordan first meets her he knows she has physical issues but it s not a problem to him He may not be sure if she can still have children and need to research her condition but it s not an issue for him Jordan really does not care and learns very quickly that his little mate isthan capable of giving him the run around and I loved that the author made Christa such a strong woman.So in conclusion I m very pleased that I didn t let the start put me off and it s fantastic to see issues that affect many people being tackled in this way MS is no picnic that s for sure but nor should it carry stigma This book turned out to be a constant surprise and the characters are often very amusing and Id love to readabout some of the supporting cast, in particular Travis It may have started out with me shaking my head and rolling my eyes at the implausible instant lust but it left me cheering for these characters and I would happily read

    Review orginally posted at RabidReads.com.I found this author earlier this year when I read the first book to this series, Past My Defenses I saw someone tweet about this author writing about a werewolf that had massive allergies to everything under the sun I bought and read that book and really enjoyed it I mean, how can you not love a story about a potential alpha werewolf who can be taken out by a house cat or marshmallows So I jumped at the chance to review book two in this series.We ve Review orginally posted at RabidReads.com.I found this author earlier this year when I read the first book to this series, Past My Defenses I saw someone tweet about this author writing about a werewolf that had massive allergies to everything under the sun I bought and read that book and really enjoyed it I mean, how can you not love a story about a potential alpha werewolf who can be taken out by a house cat or marshmallows So I jumped at the chance to review book two in this series.We ve already met our main characters in the first book, even if their roles weren t large roles Crista is the sister of Dane, book one hero She owns the house cat that I previously mentioned The cat s name is Lucifer Crista is a very strong individual She is a human who knows nothing about werewolves She also has MS, multiple sclerosis If you are not familiar with this disease, that can really take a lot out of a person.Jordan is the alpha of the pack He is also the only Lycan in his family While both of his parents are full Lycans, neither of his brothers ever shifted Then not only is is a Lycan, but he becomes alpha of a pack This made for a lot of struggles between him and his brothers.In this world, a couple will scent match, meaning that they know their mate at first smell Jordan fights the scent match because he has not had much luck with women He has had several girlfriends who were crazy So when he scent matches with Crista, he is extremely hesitant.There is suspense in this story as Jordan helps some former packmates to track some poachers Poachers are humans who hunt and kill Lycans to sell their organs on the black market.I really enjoyed this story I didn t find it nearly as humorous as the first book in the series, but this one did have it s moments This is a book that you could read without reading the first book in the series But, saying that, I liked book one a lot , so I would recommend reading it just because it is a great read

    I m so torn on how to rate this I loved the book right up until the very last page when Jordan and Christa finally, FINALLY undressed climbed into bed and.No, that s not a typo, that s pretty much exactly how the story goes.I did not know this was a novel with closed door love scenes There is just nothing to indicate that it would be, and that makes for a fairly unpleasant surprise ending I have to say, as much as I enjoyed what was there, I am definitely left feelingthan a little chea I m so torn on how to rate this I loved the book right up until the very last page when Jordan and Christa finally, FINALLY undressed climbed into bed and.No, that s not a typo, that s pretty much exactly how the story goes.I did not know this was a novel with closed door love scenes There is just nothing to indicate that it would be, and that makes for a fairly unpleasant surprise ending I have to say, as much as I enjoyed what was there, I am definitely left feelingthan a little cheated and disappointed It s just that the entire book is filled with all this banter and flirtation between Jordan and Christa that while not explicit does not read as what I would expect from a sweet romance There is such a huge build up, tons of sexual tension, and then, nothing.Everything leading up to that is fantastic From the beginning, our hero Jordan is inundated with problems He has resentful siblings, and the recovery from betrayal and murder two years past to contend with, as well as the normal daily stresses of being pack alpha He has zero interest in finding a mate, until his mate finds him.Unbeknownst to her, our heroine Christa is already sort of technically pack The fact that she has no idea werewolves exist is irrelevant As the story begins, she is trying to contend with a drug addicted roommate that she is desperate to get away from, a new nephew whose parents are seemingly insane, and an utterly exhausting flare up of multiple sclerosis As a character, she is interesting, well rounded, and completely amazing due largely to the fact that nothing fazes her.The storyline featured a novel take on courtship, as the couple is forced apart by a murder investigation, and separated almost immediately upon first meeting and establishing a tentative relationship They must contend with getting to know one another through phone calls and text messages, rather than the distraction of all the hot monkey.err, wolf sex if they were together At least I thought that was where the plot was going Yes, I am bitter On several levels, this book is not what I expected At all It is quirky, strange, and at times somewhat confusing The main male characters in particular are bizarrely angsty and melodramatic, which sounds terrible but somehow completely works The book is an engaging combination of paranormal, action, humor, and romance All in all, a very well balanced blend.But I am still left with the question of how to rate By halfway through the book I was leaning towards five stars, as it is just that amusing and enjoyable However, factoring in how incredibly and literally unsatisfying the very end was I think 3.5 rounded to 4 isthan fair For the sake of full disclosure it must be stated that I received this book, free of charge, from Netgalley.

    I love this series Jordan s story was definitely worth waiting for I loved him in Vanessa and Dane s bookPast My Defenses, and the nonstop sparring mixed with a healthy dose of mutual respect between Jordan and Dane continues here, since Jordan scent matches with Dane s younger sister Christa Absolutely perfect Ms Sparrow s writing once again made me laugh out loud over and over again Her sense of humor is fantastic, and really shines through both her writing and characters Poor I love this series Jordan s story was definitely worth waiting for I loved him in Vanessa and Dane s bookPast My Defenses, and the nonstop sparring mixed with a healthy dose of mutual respect between Jordan and Dane continues here, since Jordan scent matches with Dane s younger sister Christa Absolutely perfect Ms Sparrow s writing once again made me laugh out loud over and over again Her sense of humor is fantastic, and really shines through both her writing and characters Poor Christa it took her most of the book to get used to the fact that she was surrounded by Lycans with amazing hearing, and her lapses made for some really funny scenes Awkward for her, but super funny for the rest of us Lucifer the cat is back too, and seeing him instantly obey Jordan even over the phone is hysterical Clearly, I need to get involved with an alpha Lycan can I connect with one on eHarmony, do you think I was already half in love with Jordan s big bad alpha wolf self after book one, so it was pretty much a given I was going to enjoy his book Christa ends up being his perfect counterpart she sees herself as weak for much of the book, in part because she has MS yay to Ms Sparrow for writing a heroine with MS , but in reality she s so much stronger than her condition She s a kickbutt marksman markswoman the scene where Jordan decides to teach her some basic gun safety is hilarious and she has zero filter as far as her brain to mouth connection goes Remember the Lycan sense of hearing So Many Laughs Even her dad is awesome If ever a family were created that should be involved with supernaturals, the Hansens are it His retelling of his phone conversation with his daughter re their new in laws I think I snorted some Pepsi Max out of my nose at that part.Honestly, I can t say enough good things about this book If you like paranormals, appreciate humor in your reading, and enjoy sweet sexiness there s not really much actual steaminess, though, but I for one didn t miss it at all , then do yourself a favor and give this series a try.Quite a bit in this book hinges on what was going on in book one, but much of it is explained along the way some of it for Christa s benefit, since she was new to the situation , so it s not necessary to have read the first book to get this one but this series and these characters are so much fun you re going to want to read them both Don t say I didn t warn you Rating 4 1 2 stars A I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
