Book Review/Blitz: Two Minutes (Seven #6) By Dannika Dark



Two Minutes
(Seven #6)
By Dannika Dark


Release Date: August 18th 2015
After years of living abroad, Maizy returns home to the only family she’s ever known—a pack of wolves. When she confronts her childhood watchdog to see where they stand, his resentment leaves her uncertain about where she really belongs.

Behind Denver’s charming smile is a tragic past—one that’s made his wolf savage and unpredictable. Only Maizy has been able to tame that darkness, and when they’re reunited after many years apart, he no longer sees a child he once protected. She’s captivating and intelligent—a woman with the world at her fingertips and two suitors offering more than he ever could.

Torn between two worlds, Maizy must choose how her fairy tale ends. Tragedy, murder, passion, and imprisonment all collide with a heart-stopping twist.

Destiny will find you.

My Review:

* I was provided an eARC of this novel from the author in exchange of an honest review.

This was the story I was waiting for ever since I read Book #1 in this series! I was so excited when it didn't let me down. My expectations for this novel were sky high and what got delivered was up to par. So for that Mrs. Dark I thank you eternally!

Denver (AKA Denny) did have a past. I was expecting it to go dark like Reno's story, but it didn't. I didn't really mind it in the least, I'm just glad to finally know what made his wolf so aggressive. I didn't like the way he treated Maizy at first and did declare myself Team Prince for a few chapters. I loved how he never stopped being her guard dog. Even after he made a point to distance himself from her, deep down he never stopped caring.

Maizy is all grown up and just got back to town. She's sweet, caring and loves cut off jean shorts. I liked her as a whole, but I had a problem with all her impulsive decisions. I read 70% of this book at night in one sitting so I can't say how old she turns out to be, but I'm guessing at least 20. She should have had more of a grip on her actions.

I had a problem with Prince's actions by the end of this novel. I've liked him over the last few novels, but the way he came off to Maizy as a whole was creepy. I don't know how to even describe how I felt while reading the dialogue. He came off so cold hearted that I actually felt sorry for him in a sense, but he did save that day so he isn't a complete lost cause.

As this series is almost coming to an end and almost everyone I care about is already paired up. I'd like for William to get his happily ever after next time. Heck maybe I'd even read Prince's story, where I hope he discovers he actually cares about love and finds out he can't live without it.

My Favorite Quotes:

"Figure out what you want while you're still young - before it's too late and you live your life in a pattern of rinse and repeat."

"[...] but that kind of shit seeps in real deep. There's no prince, there's no fairy tale, there's no perfect man who will sweep  you off your feet and give you a happily ever after. There's just a guy who's good enough."

"Love is more than making sure I'll have a place to live or the finest silks. Love is doing things without being asked. Will you sit on the steps at sunset and talk to me? Will you make me laugh? Will you read to me when I'm not feeling well? will you hold my hand and tell me secrets?"

My Rating:

**Excerpt**

“Don’t you like me, Denny?”

He shifted his stance. “I’ve never looked at you like that before.”

My voice fell to a whisper. “Then look at me like that.” I rose on my tiptoes until our faces were close. “Don’t make me beg for something you want too. Give me a good memory in this house, Denny. Kiss me the way you would if you loved me.”

His hands slipped behind my neck and his mouth crushed against mine. Warmth. Wetness. Desire. Eagerness. He kissed me hard—ours lips parting and tongues intimately discovering each other. I flattened my hands against his sides, up his strong chest, and then over his broad shoulders.

Someone moaned. Was it me?

Or was it him?

Denver delivered a smoldering kiss that would set the bar high for future suitors. It was demanding and experienced. His lips melted against mine, slowing down and searing into my memory. My legs trembled, and my body ached for him to hold me again. His fingers slipped into my hair, tickling me with soft strokes.

Just when I thought it was dying down, Denver moved in for the kill. This time he moaned audibly. Passion stirred as his body seemed to harden and warm all at once, and images flashed in my mind of us doing things in that room—naughty things. I stood on his feet to get as close as I could.

When he dragged his mouth away and rested his cheek against mine, I curved my arms around his back and put my feet on the floor. We could have pressed on, but Denver embracing me right after was more intimate than the kiss itself. Feeling his chest move with breath, his body warm me with heat, and his muscles tense as they held me tight, filled me with a sense of belonging.

“Is this wrong?” he whispered against my ear.

“Does it feel wrong?”

“No. But maybe I need someone to tell me it is.”
