“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.”

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.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then 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 planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
