What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
It all started with a naked man in an alley….
Oh did that get your attention?
Good, now listen up. For years I’ve been fighting to be on my own and out from under my father’s control. I thought I’d finally managed it after I got my dream job in a London emergency room. Things were going great. I was making good money and even had a place of my own.
I should have known the good times wouldn’t last. I apparently was engaged to a man my father picked out and soon found myself kidnapped, tortured, and forced into becoming someone else. My whole life I’ve been lied to and something was hidden inside me. And now it’s set free.
My Thoughts on Hidden Hope
Heads up, this is Book #1 in a series, though there is not indication on title or GoodReads page that this is a series.
This was an OK shifter book. The plot, though well worn in places, was still unique enough to pull you in and offers a way forward that is both intriguing and a touch different from the norm. That said, it seemed to lose its stride around the half way point. It started incredibly strong, smacking me in the face and MAKING me care…. and then it… just didn’t.
A pivotal moment leads into immaturity, reversing any and all gains Vivianna had earned from me, and making me quirk my brow at her a bit too often. Simply put, she started to annoy me… a lot. While I enjoyed the interactions with her wolf, the reactions she had with the new men in her life, and the way they ALL acted around each other felt juvenile and misplaced in a tale that seemed to try to be bigger than it was.
Yet even with those issues, I am still going to continue the series when the next book comes out, as I want to know what happens next.

My Final Verdict on Hidden Hope
This wasn’t as strong as I hoped it would be, though there is potential in this narrative, enough that I will follow the series to the next release. Interesting Shifter Reverse Harem, Free on Kindle Unlimited.
