Problem With Promises by Leigh Evans

NEVER MAKE A PROMISE…

Robson Trowbridge, the Alpha of Creemore and my gorgeous mate, tries to protect me, Hedi Peacock, half-Fae, half-were, from all the trouble I get into. The thing is, my past is pretty messy and bad guys keep knocking down my door. Witches, thug bikers, the North American Council of Weres, dark magic Fae, and even an evil wizard are all after me. The Old Mage is the only one I really care about: He has my dear twin brother captive on the other side of the Gates of Merenwyn—not cool. So my alpha love is helping me to keep my promise to free my brother…

YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO KEEP.

Unfortunately, everyone who helps me ends up in a heap of trouble too—including my Trowbridge. Now, I admit I’ve had my moments as a shivering coward, hoping he will come to my brave rescue. The whole Prince Charming thing is hard to shake. But these bad guys after me mean business and those damsel in distress days are over. You know that “last straw” metaphor? That was two straws ago. It’s now or never. Again…

I would like to start off saying how impressed I was that I was able to enter into a book so far along in a series and catch on so quickly. In the first few chapters there were little snippets of background information. It wasn't gushed out all at once, but rather a slow build up revealing the events that had transpired in the previous books in the series. And while I think I did miss out on the dynamics of all the characters (because I hadn't had the two previous books of build up to fall back on), by about midway through the books I liked the characters enough to really identify with them. The writing style is so vivid. I love how she tells the backstory of the Fae and the Weres without making it boring.

There are a few emotional scenes in the book, each beautifully written and will cause a few tears. I love the support characters, especially ex-drag queen Cordelia and Biggs. They bring a really fun flavor to the book.

Overall I think this is a good book, I think the reader of paranormal romance are going to enjoy it and this series. I really think that Leigh Evans will become a favorite of all Paranormal fans. I have to say that after reading this book, the first three books are going on my to buy list, and I am very curious to see what happens next as this series goes on.
