Book Blitz/Review: Charming (Seven #6.5) By Dannika Dark


Charming
(Seven #6.5)
By Dannika Dark

Release Date: December 8th 2015
After seven hundred years, Prince has acquired everything a Packmaster could desire. But when he meets the enchanting Nadia Kozlov, he realizes there’s one thing he doesn’t have: answers. Prince owes his life to a man he hasn’t seen in centuries, and Nadia holds the key to his whereabouts, because that man is her father.

Destinies collide when Nadia’s sister shows up unexpectedly. Katarina is a skilled bounty hunter, hot on the trail of a nefarious outlaw who turns out to be Prince’s old nemesis. Prince teams up with Nadia’s sister to track down the Mage, but the real game of cat and mouse is already underway as sparks fly between Prince and the cunning bounty hunter.

The only trouble? Nadia wants him too.

In the Seven series timeline, this full-length novel is 6.5. However, Charming can also be enjoyed as a stand-alone.

My Review:

* I received an eARC from the author in exchange of an honest review.

I enjoyed the story that is Prince's happily ever after, but for some reason I'm not 100% satisfied with it. I wanted more (story wise) and something is telling me that I just didn't get it. I can't really tell you what I wanted more of because even I don't know. Personally I'd prefer this as a quick novella instead of a full length book.

I've had my ups and downs with Prince. At one point I wanted him and Mazy to have a future together, but then he showed his true ancient colors and that creeped me out. After that I didn't really see him in the same light, but this novel did turn that around yet again. We get to see his loyal and caring side. He tries to be the all powerful macho alpha, but his mate really brought him down to earth again.

I LOVED Kat (Katerina). She's kind of one of the guys, in the sense that she eats like one (which I loved) and that she hunts down bad guys (it's considered almost a man only job). She's spunky, says what's on her mind and really respects her sister (I can't say it's mutual though). 

The plot line of chasing a mage and all that jazz wasn't really for me. I skimmed a lot of the book during those parts, which I'm not proud of doing because I've loved every book in this series up until this one. Maybe that's what left a sour taste in my mouth.

Favorite Quotes:

"I don't think I've had enough, because I sure as hell need something to anesthetize me from the ignorance that lives within this house."

"Don't think I didn't notice your stomach growling earlier. What do you think lulled me to sleep?"

"I'm better [coordinated] when I'm running full speed. Something about the slow pace of a stroll makes my limbs forget how to function."

My Rating:

About the Author:


This is the segment where you learn a little more about who I am, so here's what I can tell you: I drink copious amounts of vitamin water placed precariously close to my laptop while writing. These are two healthy habits I have no intention of breaking. I'm a transplant living in the south, but I was born in the 70's to a military dad who moved us around the world.

When I'm not writing (which is all the time), I'm hunting down Indie music, watching movies, reading, eating Tex-Mex, discovering new ways to humiliate myself bowling, and burning up my laptop battery on the Internet. I have a relaxed, easy-going personality and don't like drama. I live with a cat who thinks she is a dog, or a goat (she eats plastic, so I'm not sure which).

Throughout my life, I've had insomnia. Counting sheep never worked and eventually I would imagine those sheep were the sole source of food after an apocalyptic battle where only thousands survived. I made up stories in a futile attempt to bore myself to sleep. The problem was, I got so wrapped up in my "head stories" that I would continue them through the following nights, changing it up each time to make it more exciting. Eventually, I started writing my ideas down - creating short stories, and then I discovered my love for poetry.

It's almost embarrassing how many spiral notebooks and stacks of paper I have of poetry and lyrics.

Another passion: digital art. I design all my book covers, marketing, and series art. I'm a very visual person and pursued photography as an avid hobby for many years.

I am not a YA author (I feel like I have to state this only because I've had a few people ask), but I think it's wonderful there are so many books available to teens in Urban Fantasy and Paranormal.

I am finally doing what I have always wanted to do: giving my characters a pulse through writing full time. I focus on adult urban fantasy romance, but I don't like labels and I enjoy blending genres to break out of the confines of predictability.

But it's what I love to do.
