Emmett is a shifter who's found his mate in a picker named Candy.
The beginning was very choppy, like the author wasn’t sure how to explain the world she was creating. It was hard to follow. And Emmett, despite being a badass shifter and a former army man sounded too feminine. Even his flirting and dialogue was...off. Candy, however, was great. I loved her smart mouth and her sassy attitude. I instantly liked her and that remained throughout the story. I didn’t get why she was so into Emmett but I think that had to do with his feminine personality. The story was good. A shifter finds his mate in the midst of pack problems. I really liked the side characters too, the other pack members and of course, Max.
This was a solid 3 ½ star book but I rounded up since we don’t do ½’s at The TBR Pile. Picking Candy had a lot of promise and I look forward to more from Ms. Duran.
