Book Review: Scent: Animal Trilogy book 2 by Jacqueline Paige

Scent: Animal Trilogy book 2
by Jacqueline Paige
Paranormal Romance
Pages: 245
Sometimes the answers you get aren’t what you asked.The world can tilt a bit and throw you off balance, just enough that you have to stop and make some adjustments. Kelsey comes home to find out her entire life and everything she thought she knew is a lie. When her world spins out of control and flips in more directions then she could ever count, she struggles to right it again.

I jumped into this trilogy right here at book 2, the author does a great job of making it easy to catch up. I didn't feel lost or left out at all, the first story characters even make a come back and give you a taste of what their story was about. Which made me want to get book one! 

There was a lot to like about this tale. Sexy shifter males working on big farming equipment, shirtless at times, sweaty, did I mention they were tall and sexy? I mean someone turn on a hose and spray these bad-boys down! In slow motion please. I was eating up every sweaty drop this group had going on. Protective, alpha, caring men, ready to take on an enemy and eliminate any threats.

I enjoyed the group of men so much, I almost didn't give the main female character a chance. Kelsey starts out kind of bland, a tad boring and meekish. She's not aware of the shifter world, yet. But she's about to get a big time crash course. Her animal is making a breakthrough and she's getting hot and bothered. While she did grow on me by the end of the book, I didn't ever feel an emotional connection with Gage. (Her mate.)

Kelsey talks about needing to know if the feelings she's having for Gage is more then lust/mating heat. While Gage roundabout tells her it is, they never actually have any heart to heart moments. They make out, he gets her off and the steamy parts build, but where is their emotional journey? Maybe even a date night, I mean something! With only 245 pages to work with, the author has to rush a bit. I just would have enjoyed some bonding time.

Overall, this was an above average shifter tale. I have to give extra points for the sexy man candy and shirtless moments. However, I'm holding out for a shirtless shifter carwash! My car needs some cleaning boys and I've got dollars to burn!

About the Author:
Jacqueline Paige lives in Ontario in a small town that’s part of the popular Georgian Triangle area. No one has ever heard of Stayner, so she usually tells people she lives “near Collingwood” and no, she doesn’t ski at Blue Mountain or at all, in fact she’s not even fond of snow.

She began her writing career in 2006 and since her first published works in 2009 she hasn’t stopped. Jacqueline describes her writing as “all things paranormal”, which she has proven is her niche with stories of witches, ghosts, physics and shifters now on the shelves.

When Jacqueline isn’t working at her ‘reality job’ or lost in her writing she spends time with her five children, most of whom are finally able to look after her instead of the other way around. Together they do random road trips, that usually end up with them lost, shopping trips where they push every button in the toy aisle, hiking when there’s enough time to escape and bizarre things like creating new daring recipes in the kitchen. She’s a grandmother to four (so far) and looks forward to corrupting many more in the years to come.
