Taran is crazy about her boyfriend, Gemini, a sexy were with the incredible ability to split into two separate wolves. But after watching her sister go through heartbreak with the pack’s Alpha, Taran knows not to count on happily ever after—despite Gemini’s desire to claim her as his mate. Reluctantly, she agrees to meet his very traditional and conservative parents. Taran’s a badass with a mouth to match, and Gemini loves her for it. She’s just not positive these attributes will please Mom and Dad.
Unsurprisingly, every attempt by Taran to bond with Gemini’s folks proves disastrous. But in the end, Taran finds that winning them over means unleashing her powers . . . and proving that this foul-mouthed fire-starter is a force to be reckoned with.
This was my very first Weird Girls and Cecy Robson read and I have to say it wasn’t what I expected. I was delightfully surprised by this quirky, fun and action intense story. I never expected to laugh so much. Talk about making a bad first impression with Gemini’s parents. If something could go wrong, it does. But ultimately, it all comes down to Taran accepting Gemini as her mate after her sister’s disastrous relationship with Gemini’s alpha.
Unfamiliarity, with previous stories in this series, was not a hindrance to this plot. Although, after reading Of Flame and Promise, I would love to revisit the previous books.
I really enjoyed Of Flame and Promise. It provided a highly entertaining plot specked with a series of unfortunate events and a couple I could really get behind.
I received this ARC copy of Of Flame and Promise from Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication January 12, 2016.
