“…we get PHOENIX REBORN. Which was just too….. simple.”
~ Under the Covers
It is no secret that I’m a fan of this series. When I first noticed there would be a m/m story as we found out one of the Pack members found his mate in a human nurse at the compound, I was extremely giddy. Especially because he was rejecting the idea completely and I thought that would make for a good angsty story.
And then we get PHOENIX REBORN. Which was just too….. simple. The story, the characters, it just all felt like a waste of a good base for a book! I started off liking both of them, but quickly realized Nix was going to annoy the crap out of me. A lot of his issues come from the homophobia he had to deal with from his father. And I’m sorry, after he’s now turned into a big bad shifter, I can’t get behind his way of thinking. And after a while, Noah’s actions were also getting on my nerves. So basically I spent a lot of time while reading this book wanting to shake both characters!
The one thing I did like was the tie in to the phoenix aspect and how the author was able to work that in. But other than that, this book has left me a bit disappointed. I’m not sure if I can say the author was comfortable writing a male/male couple. The dynamics between them didn’t really work for me, and the sex got repetitive. As always though, this is a series I’ll continue reading, even though sadly this one missed the mark for me.
