Loved this book!!! The series is taking a little turn in a new direction and I am loving the depth of the stories.
Nicia is awesome with her straightforward ways. I love a gal who can handle herself. She has so much to overcome but she doesn't mope or let it make her too hard. Brax is the perfect match for her. He doesn't try to pamper her and lets her use her hunting skills as a partner. They had a tiny stumble in the beginning but after that they meld into a unit.
The steam is yummy!! A little outdoor play that takes second and third base! When they finally consummate it is very sweet and sensual. Then things go hot and heavy!! Plenty of steam mixed in but it does not take over the story.
I love The Crossroads but am very intrigued by the Shifter Counsel and their hunters. I hope we see more of this side of shifter life in future books. As usual my only complaint is it is too short!
