Review by

Navarro’s Promise centers on the problem around Micha’s and Navarro’s mating and what goes wrong with the mating heat. Since Navarro has recessed genetics, his mating hormones are not as abundant as normal Breeds. Once he does mate with Micha, he tries to hold back his emotions, because of his training. Unfortunately this decreases the mating hormone in his system, but not in hers. This comes across to Micha that Navarro is “running out or away” from the mating and she feels rejected. She feels rejected not just by his feelings but now by his body. As like all Breeds, for Navarro, this has to do with fighting the animal within. Once he lets his recessed genes surface, so does the mating hormones come out. But it is all or nothing, because apparently, he needs to bring emotions as well to make everything work for the HEA. There is some insight into Cassie and Phillip Brandemore but the real focus is our main characters. There is a lot of heat in the book, little plot, very little on other characters or main story lines. The beginning starts strong but the ending is weaker and there are some major editing issues that make the end confusing. I found this a pleasant, enjoyable, read, but not one of her best.

Another good addition to Leigh's Breed series, with some new developments in the mating heat science. Mica is Cassie's best friend and has apparently been avoiding Navarro - they get stuck together since some people decide Mica is a perfect person to kidnap. Mating ensues with trauma and drama. I wonder when Leigh is giving Cassie her own book?

A solid addition to the series. If you haven't read other books in the series, you will be lost. But this was a nice change and had some twists that were different from the other recent books - which, with the exception of Jonas' book, had gotten a little repetitive. The author definitely has an overarching plot line in mind and you can tell this book is moving the plot line forwards. It can be frustrating to see this develop at the expense of the current story but I'm really interested in this series and can't wait to see where it goes...

Review by

Normally, I find these stories compelling enough to ignore the (many) inconsistencies. This one, however, had too much makes-no-sense for me to get into it at all. On the plus side, I didn't pay for it and it took very little time to skim (which is the only reason it wasn't a DNF)

Another entirely forgettable entry in the series.
