“…fun and entertaining.” ~ Under the Covers

I’ve always been a fan of Vivian Arend’s shifter stories because they are fun and entertaining.  We originally got to know the Takhini Wolves and in the last book, MOON SHINE, we also got to know the bears.  I’m pretty excited that we are delving into more from this world in this spin off series and can’t wait to read more about them!

So think of COPPER KING as the billionaire shifter story.  Jim is rich, successful in his own right, and maybe sometimes a bit too uptight.  That’s why he can count on his best friend Damon (a wolf) to shake things up a bit.  Every year they figure out an over the top way of determining who wins a certain lucky coin for the year.  Except this year, Jim might’ve found something more important to invest his time in than competing for a coin.

Where Ms. Arend’s wolves have fated mates and that pull is instant and undeniable, bears don’t.  So when Jim meets Lillie it’s the attraction that calls to him.  And after they spend time together, it’s a genuine ease of being together.  I kind of like this a lot because as much as I love reading about fated mates, sometimes that can be a bit too much insta love for me.  I really like to let them develop those feelings naturally as well.  So this was a nice change of pace for these stories.  (Hint hint, more bears!!!)

Jim is attentive, possessive and sometimes overbearing (get it?).  He takes over Lillie’s life in just a few days.  Lillie on the other hand has always been a little sheltered.  She’s not too sure of herself, a bit of a recluse.  She has a rebel side but it was always squashed down by her family.  And now she’s on the run from something, hiding a secret, and that’s when she meets Jim.  Her one last wild ride of freedom, or so she thought.

I think their personalities complemented each other very well.  The story was short but it packed enough romance to keep me completely satisfied.  The ending was a bit rushed to the “I love yous” but I liked how the author ended it otherwise.  Yes, I did see that coming all the way from almost the beginning but that didn’t take away from enjoying the story.

Damon as a side character provided so much entertainment!  He’s the wild friend, the one that maybe throws caution to the wind sometimes, the fun player one.  I cannot wait to read his book next!

About Vivian Arend

Vivian Arend in one word: Adventurous. In a sentence: Willing to try just about anything once. That wide-eyed attitude has taken her around North America, through parts of Europe, and into Central and South America, often with no running water.

Her optimistic outlook also meant that when challenged to write a book, she gave it a shot, and discovered creating worlds to play in was nearly as addictive as traveling the real one. Now a New York Times and USA bestselling author of over 30 novels and short stories in both contemporary and paranormal genres, Vivian continues to explore, write and otherwise keep herself well-entertained.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
