Hanging by a Moment Reviews
4 1/2 Stars!Enjoyed the first in this series, so was looking forward to reading Hanging by the Moment (the second installment in the Were Watching series). At first, it looked like this was going to have a heroine that made my TSTL shelf, a hero that was hard to like and a theme that was had me shaking my head, but the author turned it all around and it came together in a very touching, sweet, sexy--erotic--romance, set in New Orleans or N'awlins as its pronounced around here.Ziggy Trudeau (werewolf) is the eldest brother and was first introduced in Candid Camera (Were Watching, #1) as the founder of the security agency, Were Watching. He's a steadfast bachelor and is emphatic on not finding his mate or having kids. He has very little humor or fun in his life and is dwelling on a tragedy that happened to his best friend and his mate two years prior. I thought he spent too much time on something that happened beyond his control, but as I stayed with the story the author was able to move me to see more from Ziggy's perspective.Summer/Savannah (empath) was hiding from an abusive boyfriend in New Orleans. The abuse she suffered from her deranged--former prisoner of war, special ops, psychopath--boyfriend was horrendous. It didn't sit well with me where the author was trying to go after what she had experienced and Ziggy's BDSM nature. But, thankfully, the book turned in another direction. For a moment, it looked like this was going to turn into BDSM, menage and get the phooey shelf for both characters, but the author weaved her story and nicely directed the characters into other waters that made this very sweet.Disappointed that Marcus (the vampire from #1) only had a brief mention. Rico, the vampire in this one needs a tale. Looks like Chad (Jaguar shifter) and Georgie are next.
A moment from his past, shattered Ziggy's thoughts of ever taking a mate. When he meets Summer, a hostess at a BDSM club he frequents he knows she is the one, but unwilling to mate comes up with a plan to spend time with her in a just friends with benefits relationship. Summer has been working towards regaining control of her life, brutally attacked by someone she trusted has her writing off men completely, until she meets Ziggy. Ziggy has her completely dropping her barriers, but he senses his reluctance to allow it to become something more. When her past comes back to haunt her, Ziggy's only thought is protecting her and fighting the urge to claim her as his mate.I didn't like this one as much as the first in the Were Watching series. Ziggy was a big conflicting emotional mess when it comes to Summer, although sensitive to her past he was unreachable in other areas. He was pretty closed off, would have liked to a bit more vulnerability on his part.
Beautifully written follow up to Candid Camera, which introduced the series about two were brothers who run a security company, hence the name Were-Watching. Despite the book's early references to the bdsm scene, this is not a bondage book, thank god. The author's writing reminds me a lot of Lisa Marie Rice's books, with militarized alpha males protecting their females. Highly recommended.
Do I even care what this book is about?!
Ziggy was a yummy hero, although it was painful to see how much he fought the idea of having a mate and family. Summer's one strong heroine--she bounced back from a hideous past.
