has been in love with her business partner, werewolf Rand McIntyre,
forever. Except for the time he took her virginity years ago, it
appears heís never seen her as anything more than a friend. He
spends more time in bed with other women than he does working and
T.J. has had enough. Itís time she got out and played the same game
that Rand is. Rand has always wanted T.J., but her five brothers
were rather explicit about what they would do to him if he touched
her again. Rand canít believe that T.J. is acting like she is, and
Rand is now determined to claim his woman...no matter the cost.
and Coventry grabbed
my attention in the first chapter with a great story premise, a man
who has kept himself away from the woman he loves and a woman who is
fed up seeing the man sheís in love with constantly with other
women. But from there the story quickly collapses into a rather
undefined mess. When T.J. claimed that she was going to be like
RandÖshe wasnít kiddingĺthe
only men she didnít have sex with in the story were her brothers.
However, truthfully, I could have recovered from that, after all,
Rand had hurt her for years with other women, regardless if he meant
to or not. A little payback would have gone right along with the
story and even if I wasnít enthralled, I would have been happy. But
when Ms. Andel introduces Randís ex-girlfriend and has Rand almost
cheat (the only reason he didnít is because he got caught) AFTER
they commit to each other and after all Randís protests that T.J.
could trust him now because he was through with that life, the
emotional satisfaction I look for in romance was completely leeched
out of the story in three short pages. Lisa Andel definitely has
potential but unfortunately McIntyre and Coventry
is one story that readers who are looking for a paranormal
romance should avoid.
