    Great series! totally got the grittiness and emotions of this wolf/non canidae storyline which was at the center of this whole series..the author wrote of how one of the leads became canidae by some special surgery after being bitten(don't wanna give too much of the story away) plus how her and Dale finally met...both adorable in this series in showing their feelings for one another,this is why i admire how the writer did a great job in developing their relationship..there was a little side story pertaining to her mother and their past problems.. nice plot twist,intense action and solid writing that is sure to keep readers hooked.. highly recommend

    Okay...Well, it was fine - didn't feel the emotion between Adi and Dale, but the thriller aspects were fine, if a little perfunctory for my tastes. Diverting read, not sure if I will read further in this series.

    FourStarsI really enjoyed this page turner of a novel. The introduction really set the scene with its traditional concepts on what proved to be an exciting new take on a very traditional tale.The first two chapters, brilliantly captured the tone of the book as well as relating relevant information regarding both leading females. We were made aware of each of the characters strengths and weaknesses as well as their growing relationship and feelings towards each other.Despite Ari being able to transform into a wolf this mystery was really believable due undoubtedly to the strength of the authors ability to create such a credible character in Ari. Dale, Ari's partners character proved to be an antithesis and great human counterfoil to Ari.Not only was this novel an excellent mystery but it also was a tale of a growing and love and devotion between the two women.I was slightly disappointed in the way the ending appeared to happen so quickly with everything developing and falling into place with great speed and alacrity.If you enjoy suspense, mystery and a story of true love then I feel this book will not disappoint.Another plus to this novel was the summation regarding the canidae family which I found interesting and informative.I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.~ChrisFiveStarsThis book is well written and a easy read. The short stories left me wanting more and this was exactly what I wanted!Packed with action and steamy sex this book will keep you turning the pages! I truly enjoyed this book and can not wait to read the rest of the series. I love how Ari and Dana never fail to kick ass no matter the odds stacked against them!I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.Amber

    Es un muy buen libro con personajes encantadores,es imposible no caer rendida a los pies de Ari y Dale en esa dinámica que tienen a lo largo de toda la historia. Son justamente esos personajes fuertes los que te atrapan y no te dejan largar el libro hasta el final más allá de la trama en sí. Me gusta mucho el estilo de Geonn al plantear sus personajes, como los plasma de manera que sientas sus emociones y te identifiques con ellos. Este autor está siendo un gran descubrimiento este año, todo lo que he leído de él confirma y reafirma su talento.

    Huh. I really don't know what to think about it. The big turn around in the middle of the book is quite a surprise (not a good one) and I think it mostly goes downhill from that point. I wasn't expecting it for sure. Motive and mean characters were pretty screwed up. I wasn't convinced. Still, this book is not bad, my favorite part were the Laura-Tule interactions with Ari feeling queasy on the background, those were really nice but that was it for me.

    I was reluctant to read a lesbian romance written by a man but it wasn't bad at all. Not my favourite shifter but I liked the characters and enjoyed their interactions. There was a grittiness to it which was refreshing. The main baddy's motivations seemed flimsy to me and maybe there wasn't enough exploration around that.

    What I like best about Geonn is that he transforms a scenario known as an old story and provides a personal touch. This time I talk about a canidae (not a werewolf) with her problems hiding her own nature, trying to survive with his modest agency of private investigations in which Dale, her assistant also works. When Ari is hired by the legendary Gavin family to report all of the heiress's moves, she believes it will be the forty-five thousand dollars she has earned in her entire career, something that will take her out of debt and can give her sometime a comfortable life. Like anyone who is always lacking in money, she begins to think about things that could spend that huge amount instead of thinking negative things.So she will become Tule, the dog Laura Gavin will take care of for a week, and her own vision of the Laura that appears in the tabloids and the Laura that she really is, will change her own perspective on the work, making her doubt.That said, on more than one occasion in these everyday dialogues I have found both Ari and Dale charming. Lovely. The story itself is very well treated, perhaps as always the authors leave it without so much review the end although it does not mean that it is bad, only unpolished as much.I really like it.

    This book came recommended, so I was excited to give it a read. I jokingly said, “No werewolf stories!” and was informed that I would like this one because the main character is a wolf (technically “canidae”), not a werewolf.I’m pleased to say that I wasn’t at all disappointed. It’s a fun, light read that had all the elements to make me happy: A bit of fairy tale/supernatural, a crime to solve, and women falling in love. What’s not to like?The main characters, Ari and Dale, are likeable and fun. I enjoyed getting to know them as the story unfolded. They are smart, savvy, and capable, but they’re not specimens of perfect womanhood, which I appreciated. Their relationship felt natural to me, if a bit predictable (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing).It felt a bit slow to start, though I was glad for the background information. The pace picked up quickly, however, and I was soon absorbed.There were a few moments where I had to suspend my disbelief, and not regarding the wolf-human elements. For example, the climactic “take down the bad guys” scene was a bit over-the-top and unrealistic. However, it fit the story, and unless one cares about having a true-to-life crime story ending, it doesn’t really matter.The “murder mystery” plot wasn’t much of a mystery, as it’s both predictable from the beginning and the whodunnit is known about halfway through. So if you’re looking for a true mystery, this is not it. The fun is in how Ari and Dale thwart the bad guys and find their happy-for-now ending. So if that’s your thing, this is definitely the book for you.I did think there were some frequently-used detective story themes, and it was a bit hard to tell if those were intended as tongue-in-cheek or to be taken seriously. I lean towards the former because the general tone of the book is fairly light, but that might be off-putting for someone looking for a fresh take.I thought the sensuality was just right in terms of how much/how descriptive relative to the rest of the plot. There were a few moments where it felt just a bit choppy, but it evened out.Overall, I really enjoyed this and look forward to more.

    Now, I am extremely cautious when I find a book with lesbians in it when the author is not (sorry Geonn), but I have to say that this is done as it should be. There's no obvious pointing of fingers, nothing to show that being a lesbian is odd. Everything is normalized, which is exactly how it should be. I also want to extend a huge thank you to whoever made the decision of NOT having a sexual cover. That's actually what drew me to this book initially, because most wlw fiction I was looking into had sexual poses on the cover, or someone was partly nude, or they were supposed to look "pretty" as a really nice gift in the shop would if you looked through the window. I didn't want that, and everything this cover portrays is how the book feels.Regardless of my love for werewolf monsters I was pleasantly surprised to find that this was truly a shifter book series. There are more than just wolves, and that adds a nice little detail to the world. The writing was incredibly easy to follow and enjoy (even with the British robot voice telling me the story on my android) and it didn't take me long to get sucked into the investigation about Laura Gavin.The mystery side of this writing style also made it possible to follow the plot line exactly as it happened for Ari Willow. This is extremely important to me because I typically find myself ahead of the protagonist and solving the mystery before them. I was very relieved that suspense hit me when it should, instead of never feeling it at all.I will say that I'm writing this after reading the second book because I wanted give Underdogs a chance, and I have to say that I am rooting for them as the title promotes. I can only promise you the story gets even better down the line.

    I enjoyed this book but wouldn't call it satisfying as a stand-alone or even the first in a series. The characters and their relationships are really established in the short stories set before this which, thankfully, the author has made available to read for free online. As a longer episode in an ongoing series of stories about Ari and Dale, this book works well, but as a novel I wish the short stories were more supplementary than foundational to the reading experience. The stories on Ao3 range in rating from Teen to Explicit, which should give you a clue about the sort of content, both in them and the book.On a more technical side, I enjoy the writer's style but he could do with another proofreader or two. There are some minor inconsistencies and a few places that feel repetitive. It's pretty easy to overlook in the short stories but it stands out a bit more in a finished novel that you pay to read.

    I thought this book was OK, but it is above average as far as paranormal lesfic is concerned. The writing style was ok; not spectacular or deeply intelligent, but definitely not sub-par.The characters were likeable, and even the supporting roles were written well enough to give them depth.Some of the plot moves hit me the wrong way, but i dont want to give spoilers, and it's probably just an opinion thing anyhow. It is shorter than most novels, which might explain why some parts of the storyline weren't explored.I dont regret spending a few hours reading this book. So if you like some paranormal to go along with your lesbian romance, i would recommend it.

    Meh!No work of Art. No great plot, story telling, ingenuity or execution. Felt like a waste of time, half the time but I was bored and I read it and I rather having found not-so-gooda paranorm about lesbians that not having read it at all. Turns out that that's not entirely trueWouldn't recommend it. I REALLY wna c lez and or bi characters or people in otherwise homo-relationship within my favorite genres, paranorm/fantasy/sci-fi, but it's not good enough to just be gay friendly. I like good literature and a sensible read.

    I loved this book. The relationship between Ari and Dale I began to love after Laura died but before I was actually hoping for Ari and Laura to get together and defeat the baddies. I also loved how I never read a book about this type of werewolf and reading it was a new but delightful experience. Overall I would definityly recommend this book.

    As always, Mr. Cannon has written a really good mistery novel. I wont comment in deep (wouldn't want to ruin the mistery) but I can say that he has taken Ariadne Willow's and Dale Frye's characters and made them even rounder and deeper than they where before.
