This is a story of two halves. The first half I struggled with due to a few factors, then the second half became the book I enjoyed reading.
Spoilers ahead. Unfortunately I cannot wrote an honest review without giving some of the plot away.
What a mix up of emotions this one was. I am confused as to what the problem was with having a relationship with Samantha. Apart from being shifters which is not a difficult thing to deal with.
Alex at least realized he had screwed up quickly and tried to find Sam and after the accident he was trying to be a good guy.
But Jordon I could not get my head around at all. He just seemed to be Mr. Negative. His childhood was horrific in so many ways and obviously contributes to his rotten behavior. I also did not like the cheating aspect of him with Layla, you do not have sex with someone else when you have unresolved feelings for another person. Realizing he loved Sam whilst having sex with another woman, BIG NO NO for me. Job or no job I did not like Jordon at all and they should have moved on without him. Nearly stopped reading there and then.
Samantha just wanted more from their no strings relationship, she loved Jordon and Alex and finding out she was pregnant was the deciding factor in asking for a proper relationship. When they accused her of getting pregnant on purpose she knew they could not give it to her. She made a brave decision and moved away.
I liked Samantha and was on her side all the way until the big heart to heart scene.
It then fell apart with Sam being soft and letting Jordon off the hook about Layla so easily. I cannot understand her thinking that it was okay for them to do ANYTHING (basically have sex with other women to get information) as long as they came home safely. Yeah right, I can imagine those thoughts whirling around every time they went on a mission.
Then the book really took off and it became a great story and I even forgave Jordon.
Now apart from all of this it was a really great story with so much tension, upheaval and conflict. The last 10 chapters were awesome with so much story as to be a book in themselves.
I will be reading the rest of this series.
