Past Imperfect by Rowan Worth
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book was like 3 gigantic books rolled into one. Just when I thought we were wrapping things up with one larger story, we moved right into what I would call book 2 and book 3. It made for a longer reading experience and introduction to the world of these shifters.
Natalie is a chef working at rebuilding her life after a boyfriend cut down both her bank account and her self-worth. One night, her good nature gets her into a bunch of trouble. She discovers a seemingly stray and injured dog outside the restaurant and can’t stop herself from taking him home. This “dog” ends up being easily identified as a wolf and begins a whole mess of drama for poor Natalie. All of this starts to go a little sideways when the wolf ends up transforming into a man with amnesia who ends up becoming her love interest.
On top of this, there’s a bunch of thugs trying to get some mysterious cup out of Natalie’s boss. Coincidence? Maybe not? It’s a little unclear how all these moving parts aligned to make Natalie’s life spiral out of control. After one too many attempts on Natalie’s life and one random meeting on the street, she ends up quickly moving into the “pack house.” This pack is unlike anything I’ve read about before and that was a neat unique surprise. It’s a mix of wolves, shifters, and a really close family. Oh, and there’s magic. And some nefarious ex-girlfriends (maybe?). And cops, which are always trouble for supernaturals. And Natalie’s ex-boyfriend. And … did I mention there’s also a plot against the pack for some reason? And some mystery shopper woman? There are so many questions and very few answers to be found in this first of what will most likely be many installments.
