Ever feel like you landed somewhere in a book without having an instruction manual? That’s how I felt going into Broken Communication. I received this free in a huge batch of books in December, saw it was book #1 in a series and decided I wanted to give it a try. Well, the first part of the book I felt like I was stuck in a psycho’s head. I am not so sure Casey Black was quite stable enough to allow me to see his thoughts. And those thoughts went on and on with no action, dialog or anything to break them up.

So the gist of the story is Casey Black is a shifting wolf that was experimented on to make a super soldier, but nothing ever really went right. In fact there is a group of these guys and then come into the story later on for some comic relief. Casey knows his mate is Harmony, a woman who shares an apartment with his adoptive daughter. He kind of protects them while also keeping his distance. Now Harmony has been kidnapped and he is the one to find her….until his quirky friends show up and help.

Harmony is more than human, but she keeps it hidden so well. Kidnapped, she is looking for a way out of it all when they all come in to rescue her. Now I get stuck in her mind, which is just kind of boring rather than crazy. I found myself skimming to get to some action and dialog many times.

In the end I felt like I was missing something or some book to make me understand what was going on. We get a lot on Casey, but it feels jumbled up. Not so much on Harmony. Then there is the whole feeling that I got that they had no chemistry or back story to be going forward from. Just that they are fated mates and now guess what….their in love.

So this was a lot of no go for me and I can’t say I will be back.

That sucks. I’ve read books that needed prequels or posing as “standalone” when it can’t stand on its own or even with another book attached to it. If it’s consolation, at least it’s a short one

Oh joy, I get to look forward to this one since I have that same pack. Or maybe I’ll just skip it. 😉

Well that stinks, what a shame this was lacking and you felt lost.
