“I’m not sure if it was the pacing, but the beginning of the book did feel a lot slower than what Grant usually writes so just keep that in mind while reading. Other than that, however, I still enjoyed the book.”
~ Under the Covers

In book four of the Reapers series by Donna Grant, DARK ALPHA’S LOVER has a different tone than the other books. While it still has the powerful heroine and the mysterious hero, I found that I wasn’t completely invested in the story from the get-go. I wondered if it was because of the hero, and while I enjoyed Fintan, I’m not sure that he’s my favorite of the Reapers.

You can definitely read this book as a standalone, but as always, I recommend reading the series in order. While the hero didn’t completely win me over, I found the heroine, Cat, to be very interesting. She’s on death row basically since everyone in her family has died. She knows she’s going to be next so with that impending doom approaching, I found her character to be the most appealing.

The romance blooms at a great rate, but I did wish for a little more from Fintan. I’m not sure if it was the pacing, but the beginning of the book did feel a lot slower than what Grant usually writes so just keep that in mind while reading. Other than that, however, I still enjoyed the book.

About Donna Grant

Donna Grant is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the sizzling Dark King series featuring dragons, immortal Highlanders, and the Fae. She was born and raised in Texas but loves to travel. Her adventures have taken her throughout the United States as well as to Jamaica, Mexico, and Scotland. Growing up on the Texas/Louisiana border, Donna’s Cajun side of the family taught her the “spicy” side of life while her Texas roots gave her two-steppin’ and bareback riding. Despite deadlines and voracious reading, Donna still manages to keep up with her two children, four cats, and one long haired Chihuahua.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m a 26 year old obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I’m also a reviewer for FreshFiction.com. Over there, I’m also a columnist. I have a column called Into the Night that discusses the latest and greatest news in the Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy genre. I also work as a virtual assistant for authors.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, to New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and fashion or dreaming about boys and beaches. My love for all things David Gandy is well documented on the Internet and we’ll be getting married shortly. I’ll be sure to send you an invite to the wedding! ;P Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
