Centaur Redemption (Touched Series)

Centaur Redemption (Touched Series) - Nancy Straight I love this series to pieces!!! What do you mean this is the end? Sigh, I do hope we get to see more of this world.

What I love the most about this series is it is more than just the romance of Cami and Drake. There are so many other levels and layers that unfold. We get to see relationships develop between at least four other couples. Their stories are just as special as the leads.

The narrative is beautiful mixed and blended throughout the series. Sure it is first person, something I generally cringe over. We are privy to so many POV in the narrative, it adds to the story telling making it even more engaging. They are also clearly marked, each new narrative is labeled with whose voice we are hearing.

The romance is lovely, but not overly steamy. Now that they are married Drake and Cami are able to get steamy. Don't get too excited it is still pretty much closed bedroom door. We just get to peep in the keyhole for a hot second. Nothing too detailed or racy. Quite a clean romance, if you ask me.

Everything comes together in this book. There are some points that were obvious and others I found unexpected. I am not believing the changes in the evil granny, but that is just me. Some characters are not redeemable, for me she is one of those characters. Other than that bit I was enthralled in the story. The way all the pieces finally connect to reveal the glorious final picture.

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Teri Schnaubelt, who has be a delight through the whole series. She has a brisk pace that lends energy to the read and flows with the movement of the story. She keeps all the voices distinct and consistent, a real task in such a full narrative. I am eager to find more of her work, she gives very happy ears!

I hear there may be more books in the series but not with Cami and Drake in the lead, they have been tortured enough. I would love to hear more about the other couples and the family. Perhaps give Cameron a HEA?

Disclosure - I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. All thought, opinions and ratings are my own.
