Review – ‘Jace’ by Kenzie Cox

Blurb 

In the wilds of the bayou… 

Jace Riveaux has wanted her since the first moment she stepped into his bayou bar three years ago. And now she’s back, unattached, and ready for the taking. One afternoon together, and he knows she’s the one. Only his world is dangerous, he has secrets, and trust is hard to come by...especially when all signs point to her being aligned with his enemy. 

Skye Michaels has nothing left to lose. After a bad breakup, she flees to her favorite southern Louisiana town, determined to finally get photographs of the majestic wolves that roam the area. Instead she gets what she really came for—Jace Riveaux. But when the Riveauxs are threatened by someone she knows, suddenly she has more to lose than ever.

Review 

In the first book of the Wolves of the Rising Sun series, Skye has left her abusive, manipulative boyfriend and she’s headed to the bayou to take pictures, to relax and to figure out her next move. Always attracted to the bartender at the local dive bar, she and Jace could never be together since they were both seeing other people. Now they’re both single and they take their flirty friendship to the next level. Until Jace’s brother, Aiden, accuses her of being a traitor and wanting to kill them.
The romance and action happened very quickly in this novella, but the love felt believable. The action with the bad guy at the end felt forced to me and I think Skye accepted the fact that Jace was a werewolf a little too easily.
I prefer books written in 3rd person but this 1st person narrative caught my eye so I thought I’d give it a chance. The only typo I found was that the author kept switching back and forth from how long Jace and Skye knew each other before the start of this story. In one chapter, they’d known each other for two years and, in the next chapter, it’s been three years, then it jumps back to two years. Other than that, the book is very well-written.
