Jim Shrapshire is an original, hardcore badass. A jaguar shifter, he’s been tasked with keeping Atlanta’s Cat Clan in line, which he does with swift and lethal force when necessary. His only soft spot is for the petite Dali, whose kindness he calls upon when he is injured.
When Dali is approached by a desperate woman whose grandmother has vanished, Jim is concerned enough to help investigate. But what they find may just be the end of them—an enemy whose skill in the dark arts is matched only by their willingness to kill anyone in their way...
I love how Dali has realistic insecurities about being with Jim (seeing as he is an Alpha) and I love how Jim has considered them himself (he wouldn't be Jim if he hadn't) and see's it all from a difference perspective. Jim sees Dali better than she sees herself, he understands her and does everything he can to get his girl.
The novella was nicely paced and the story well balanced between moving Jim and Dali's relationship along and a little mystery to solve which resulted in the usual madness of an investigation in the Kate Daniels world!
What I Didn't Like:
"I have three sisters," Jim reminded me. "I know what nothing means.”
"Dali, this is my mother," Jim said. "Mom, this is Dali. She's my mate."
