I had a hard time getting into this one, it took at least six chapters until I was able to start enjoying the characters. Gave it up a hundred times. I am quite happy that I stuck with it. Rose, Jack, George, & grandma made the story come alive with their commitment to each other and the sacrifices they were each willing to make. Loved the way Declan interacted with the boys and grandma. He was a true alpha out to serve and protect the little family. It took awhile to see his whole character but when I did. I absolutely loved him. He is loyal to those he cares for and will take on the baddies to make sure they stay safe. His relationship with Rose was interesting, they were both pretty guarded and it took a bit for them to warm up to each other. That did not stop his attempts to make demands on Rose or hers to challenge pretty much any demand he made if her. The bad guy was totally disgusting and evil. I can't wait to read William's story.
