(Seven Series, Bk #3)
By Dannika Dark
Izzy has always loved the freedom and adventure of life on the road, but she’s recently decided to settle down—as much as a rogue wolf can. When her boyfriend gets her a job working at a hot Shifter bar, she runs into the last person on earth she expected to see again.
Jericho isn't the famous rock star he once was, though he still plays in a local band and loves to party. Beautiful women come and go, but music is his only passion—until a sassy redhead named Isabelle Monroe shows up unexpectedly.
Fate reunites two former friends living with one foot in the present and the other in the past. But will they have a future when one of them is forced to choose between life and death? Old habits die hard, and sometimes the toughest addictions to shake are the ones that control our hearts.

Five Weeks is another wonderfully entertaining read in the Seven series by Dannika Dark.
Izzy is a wolf who never had a pack. After years on the road, she thinks she might find the security with another shifter. But things start going wrong and when she unexpectedly runs into the man that broke her heart years ago her life is turned upside down.
Jericho has reunited with his wolf family and they have formed a new pack. Tired of the drugs, alcohol and stress of being a rock star, Jericho has down sized to play local clubs. When the woman that left him at his lowest appears, he will fight for the closure they never had...but will desire for closure lead to sparks of romance igniting the flames of undying passion.
Dark once again provides an emotionally gripping storyline. Yes, it is a shifter tale, but Dark's writing gives us fictional characters facing desperate everyday circumstances. We are thrust into dealing with difficult social and person issue right along side her characters, drawing us closer into the characters lives.
I have to admit, I wasn't crazy with Jericho's family's attitude toward Izzy and felt the need for someone to pull their heads out of the sand...but in the end I can sympathize with their over protectiveness, even at the cost of another.
I highly enjoyed Five Weeks. I was pulled into this story and kept invested right to the end.
I received this ARC copy of Five Weeks from Dannika Dark in exchange for a honest review.
About the Author
This is the segment where you learn a little more about who I am, so here's what I can tell you: I drink copious amounts of vitamin water placed precariously close to my laptop while writing. These are two healthy habits I have no intention of breaking. I'm a transplant living in the south, but I was born in the 70's to a military dad who moved us around the world.
When I'm not writing (which is all the time), I'm hunting down Indie music, watching movies, reading, eating Tex-Mex, discovering new ways to humiliate myself bowling, and burning up my laptop battery on the Internet. I have a relaxed, easy-going personality and don't like drama. I live with a cat who thinks she is a dog, or a goat (she eats plastic, so I'm not sure which).
Throughout my life, I've had insomnia. Counting sheep never worked and eventually I would imagine those sheep were the sole source of food after an apocalyptic battle where only thousands survived. I made up stories in a futile attempt to bore myself to sleep. The problem was, I got so wrapped up in my "head stories" that I would continue them through the following nights, changing it up each time to make it more exciting. Eventually, I started writing my ideas down - creating short stories, and then I discovered my love for poetry.
It's almost embarrassing how many spiral notebooks and stacks of paper I have of poetry and lyrics.
Another passion: digital art. I design all my book covers, marketing, and series art. I'm a very visual person and pursued photography as an avid hobby for many years.
I am not a YA author (I feel like I have to state this only because I've had a few people ask), but I think it's wonderful there are so many books available to teens in Urban Fantasy and Paranormal.
I am finally doing what I have always wanted to do: giving my characters a pulse through writing full time. I focus on adult urban fantasy romance, but I don't like labels and I enjoy blending genres to break out of the confines of predictability.
But it's what I love to do.
