Publisher's Summary

April Frost is a compassionate young woman with a steady job and ambitious goals. But the harder she runs away from her past, the more it threatens to destroy her. When three strangers enter her life, April is forced to face her demons, and it's a battle she may not win. Private investigators in the Breed world are men who take risks, and Reno Cole is no exception. As a Shifter, he's expected to control his inner animal. But lately his wolf has been venturing dangerously close to the city, and he's about to discover why. When Reno is reintroduced to a family friend, the attraction is immediate. April captivates him with her secretive eyes and resilient spirit. She's also in trouble, and despite the fact that she's a human, Reno can't turn his back on her. April is caught between two worlds: One that threatens to bury her dreams and another that could fulfill them. Can she trust the wolf at her door and find the courage to overcome her demons?

Critic Reviews

"A fractured and reluctant heroine, plus a reticent alpha hero equals an awesome story of choice, retribution and love. Six Months has it all!" (Tamara Rose Blodgett, author of Blood Reign)

I tried, I really wanted to like it

I enjoyed the first book in this series and thought Great! a new PNR to follow, but this, the second book was totally brought down by the weak main character. Could she have been portrayed more limp? The narration was annoying, but I think that was again more of the story having the problem than the narrator. I couldn't finish the listen.

Struggling through this one

I'm struggling through this book. It's not the story, I'm intrigued and want to find out what happens to April and Reno. But MAN... the narrator makes April sound like a dimwit with no backbone whatsoever. I honestly cringe at her voice sometimes. I get that she's had a hard life, and that bad things keep happening, but... she also doesn't seem to have any courage to make her life better. It's not the kind of story I like to listen to.

I do like that the voices for the characters are the same in book 1as book 2, though. I can immediately tell who is talking by the voice, even if they are not a main part of the story anymore. It's well done. I just really don't like how weak and trampled April is becoming.

Overall ~ A Great Story!!

I really love the "shifter" world Dannika Dark has created, and how the characters are more down to earth. They are not all sexy, multimillionaires with lots of toys but more like the average person with issues you can relate to like needing home and car repairs, or personal issues like breaking up with someone or being betrayed.

This story is mainly about April struggling with these types of issues while her relationship with Reno grows. However, her situation goes from bad to worse when loan sharks start coming after her and threatening her over her late grandmother's debt. April ends up making some hard decisions on how to deal with these dangerous loan sharks.

This story has a strong presence of the other Weston Pack members and we get to see more of their personalities which I love.

The thing I liked least about this story was the narration. It's had for me to say anything negative about a narrator because I know it is hard work to be the voice for so many different characters; however, I had to start and stop this story several times because of April's voice; it sounded so depressing.

Overall, I really did enjoy the story and it is worth a credit.

Worth the credit

First let me say I have never written a review even after hundreds of books - this series deserves it! It reminds me of the BDB series ....really great!

This particular book is outstanding...better than the first. I can't wait to get to the next one. The only issue I had was that April ...well I just wanted to shake her!! Her voice is annoying after hours of listening; she was not a main character in the first book so I didn't notice that much but the book is worth the irritation and definitely worth a credit!

SADLY, NOT AS GOOD AS BOOK 1

Reno, a Brother from the Weston Pack, is a strong no-nonsense gritty Shifter, he's seen Wars, been a Bounty Hunter and now a PI but his Wolf is restless..... until the sizzling chemistry that's stirred up when he meets a kind, haunted, timid and accident prone Human April. April's got a good job but she's living in an unsavoury Trailer Park that she inherited from her Grandma but she left her a whole heap of debt too to Loan Sharks and her life's about to be turned upside down and get a whole lot worst.

There's lots of drama, danger, life threats and angst as well as plenty of interaction with the other members of the Weston Pack made up of both Shifters and Humans. But there's instant attraction, passion and hot sex when Reno and April's relationship heats up. April doesn't realize there's a secret Paranormal world out there made up of Shifters, Vampires, Mages and more and she's about to find out.

Sounds good right? But the whimsy whiney and wimpy voice of April's got on my nerves as well as her inferiority complex and some stupid actions. On top of this I really didn't feel the romance until the end because Reno was such an Alpha "do it my way" male.

Dual POV's and the narrator didn't have a problem covering all the many characters that inhabit this new world of Shifters.

Worth a credit? It was enjoyable, entertaining and had some interesting secondary characters and an insight into the other brothers but it wasn't as good as book 1. However, if you intend to follow this series as I maybe will (depending on the next book) then be happy that you spent the credit to get a bit more info from this new mixed Pack.

Second is not better

I really wanted to like this one. The first in the series was okay and I saw that the author was setting something up for a long series. In this second novel the main character is deeply annoying. She just allows everyone to walk all over her. She stumbles around not telling anyone that she has people after her and goes to an abandoned warehouse to meet a guy that already creeped her out who does that? She is winey and I didn't care at all what happened to her. The narrator isn't bad as a rule, but her choice for April's voice was bad. She made her some like a 12 year old Marylyn Monroe and it was hard to listen the whole way through. There were so many little things that I couldn't stand about April! She was too dumb to live and needed constant saving through out the book, she allowed any man in her life tell her what to do, an example is her changing her hair because Reno wanted it natural. It's her hair she stated she had always hated the natural color and as soon as he says let it grow out boom she is growing it out. I was looking for a new series, but if this is the way the series is headed I'm out.

6 Months of ups and downs

I enjoyed catching up with the characters from the first book and watching their progress. Denver was my favorite character in book 1 and 2. I loved his playfulness, but yet protectiveness over Macy. He could always detect when something was off with her and he loved her like the brother she never had.

Reno was in-love with April but he could not get her to let him in. She fell in love with his Wolfe but could not love him and it was not because of who he was, but it was because of all the people she owed money, thanks to her grandma and her non-existent mother. Reno had his eye set on her since the first time he saw her but she kept pushing him away every time he got too close or did something nice for her.

This book was all about April and all the trouble she was in. What upset me about her character was how she couldn't trust anyone with anything, not her gay best friend, her sister, or even her boyfriend. She was jilted from her past experiences and could not let go of the fact that not everyone was the same. She even stole from her friend/boss because she couldn't ask for help. She got more people in trouble in the end because she could not confide in anyone to help her.

This one was not as great for me as the first one (seven years) was but it was still a good read. I don't know if it was the voice of April or the romance wasn't as strong as the first one was. The voice rubbed me the wrong way. It sounded like an 12 year old girl. Even the little kid's voice was more mature than the female lead.

5 Six Months Stars

April and Reno are my favorite couple from this whole series and I am going to tell you why.

April is this strong and fiercely independent person because she HAS to be. No one has ever really been there for her. Not her mother, not her sister, heck even Trevor her best friend, he tends to see the smiles and the facade she has mastered, he doesn’t see pain she has underneath.

April is this corky, smart, and clumsy girl who is one heck of a great friend. Boy this girl has a back bone to rival any of the males in the pack; maybe that's why I love this book so much.

Reno is stoic man who feels things but doesn’t show em. He might be the oldest born but he isn’t Alpha and that has to mess with him. But he doesn’t let it show.

And when he sees April the world just began and ended for him with her. I think that shows what kind of man Reno is. He doesn’t care that she is only human, she is his and that’s all he needed to know.

To the readers who think April is a weak I say h-e-l-l-s no she is strong. She might have made some bad choices and kept things to herself when she should have let someone in. But she didn’t trust anyone to be who she needed them to be. Not until she meets and lets Reno in.
She had to wait for her prince, he may not be charming but he is hers and she is his.

Loved the narration each book is a performance and with each listen I love it more and more.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Great world, leading lady was TSTL

This world of Shifters, or Breed, is great. Lots of dynamics that make it an extremely inviting world....BUT....the leading lady in this story was just TSTL (Too stupid to live).

This is the book of April, she works with Lexi in the candy store, and Reno, the oldest brother. Reno was great! Strong, Alpha man who protects women...but dang April was damsel in distress, and then more distress, and further distress, and just idiotic distress. The type of character that says oh, well it's been three years since my grandmother died but if you say she owed you 50K well golly gee I guess she did. Or how about meeting a loan shark enforcer, that has already given you the creeps once, alone in an abandoned warehouse complete with graffiti? Seriously, that is exactly how the loan shark described it...like I said TSTL.

April was whiny, and frankly I don't know what Reno saw in her, but I did like the new dimensions to this shifter world. Who knew a shifter could be "in the closet" about being a shifter?!?!?

Anyway, I would say this book is good for a sale but not a credit. I loved book one so I am willing to give book 3 a shot but if it's more of the same TSTL style I'm going to give up after that. Narration was great with the male voices and most of the women's voices....her choice to always make April sound like she was near hyperventilation may have contributed to my dislike of the character.

What's with the baby voice?

April is my least favorite Dark character so far. She is completely underwhelming and what's with the unbarable breathy baby voice the narrator used? I like this narrator, but jeeeeeeez this was a rough one.

OH DEAR

I enjoyed the Mageri series which got better with each book so I thought I'd give the Seven Series a try which has been a bit of a disappointment in comparison. However Six Months has got to be the worst of the series. The narration only emphasises how annoyingly stupid, weak and inadequate the "heroine" is to the point I was rolling my eyes and wanting to bitch slap some common sense and backbone into her. I can't believe I stuck with it as long as I did. I've listened to hundreds of books and this has to be down there at the bottom.

New author for me and I'm hooked!!!

This is the second in the series and I'm heading into the rest at full tilt! The story is light but with beautiful messy human twists that are written with compassion and humour. There is angst, danger, teasing, emotion, anger, sarcasm, stunning alpha males with cheeky overinflated egos and a gorgeous little six year old that steals the lime light. My one regret? That I didn't listen to this ages ago!!!

a good book to listen to

I enjoyed the story. April did get a little annoying at times. She had been dealt a hard blow in life and deals well with it. The storyline was engaging and it was nice to keep up with other characters in the pack. They are all developing as the stories progress and become a little more three dimensional with each encounter. I love Trevor and felt he could have had an even bigger role.

On rare occasions when a the first book in a series is really great, the second book in that series is too!

This is that rare occasion, enjoy

The narrator was awesome, truly wonderful. 😁

A Cinderella story

Poor, abused, unassuming but independent Cinderella-type character tries to handle her problems (and does a half decent job doing so) but has to learn to share her problems and accept help from fist-happy, rich immortal (and somewhat damaged goods) Prince Charming character. This one doesn't have the same amount of humour we read in Seven Years but the pack brothers don't disappoint. I'm really looking forward to the rest of the books in this series.
