(Pyte/Sentinel Series Book 2)
by R.L. Mathewson
I loved this packed full of snark, action and emotion story
I read the first book in the series a couple of years ago and bought the rest soon after. Then foolishly never actually got around to reading them. Over the weekend I realised I have over 300 bought books that I haven’t yet read and I’m hoping this is the first step in remedying that oversight.
Pretty much from the first pages I was absolutely addicted to this book. I read it into the early hours even though it was a work day. I read it during any quick breaks I got during work. I read it the moment I got home and didn’t put it down until I’d finished the book.
Chris and Izzy are mates, there will never be another for them, it’s part of the Sentinel way. However Izzy isn’t quite what Chris wanted or hoped for, and Izzy had absolutely no idea what was going on most of the time. So many times I wanted to shake Chris or slap him around the back of the head. A lot of reviewers hated him, he really is a total bum-wipe a lot of the time. However I can understand why he acted as he did and the only reason I forgave him was because in the end he suffered more than Izzy did. Izzy was just so perfectly imperfect, a little bat *ahem* crazy, totally sweet and very quirky. The pair had a love-hate relationship that sizzled with one heck of a lot of chemistry.
The story is a fast paced, action packed, thrilling and exciting ride. I couldn’t read it quickly enough and absolutely loved every minute of it. In fact the only reason it didn’t get all 5 stars was that the book had a LOT of missing words, and other errors that should have been caught during beta reading an editing. Normally I can ignore it but at some points of the story their were errors on every page and it did become a little distracting. Despite that I really would still recommend this book.
Chris Williams is used to making sacrifices. For years he’s done his duty by his family and his calling as he awaited the one person that was meant for him. When she finally came into his life she was nothing like the woman he’d expected. Instead of being the warrior ready to help him protect his family and the humans under his care he got…..
A computer geek named Isabella, who somehow managed to get her name on every Master’s hit list. One minute she admits that she’d made a foolish mistake and the next she’s kidnapped, held hostage by a crazy cult who steals her chocolate and she’s sure is after her program, a program she has no plans on giving up anytime soon. As she tries to keep her wits about her the sexiest man she’s ever seen claims her, only he doesn’t seem to happy about it. It’s clear that he doesn’t want her, but the stubborn man just won’t let her go even when it’s clear that he may not have a choice.
5 stars – This is a book I will not forget and would definitely read again.
4 stars – I really enjoyed this book, I might not read it again but I would definitely recommend it to others.
3 stars – This story was good but either forgettable or just very typical of its genre.
2 stars – Whilst the book was readable I either didn’t enjoy parts of the plot or just could not connect to the main characters.
1 star – This is a book I simply could not finish for reasons listed in the review.
