Review: Gabriella

gabriellaReviewed by Shelly

This is the second in the Alpha Marked series. Gabriella’s story is just as witty and smexy as Scarlet’s (Book 1). Recap: Gabriella, along with her sisters just turned thirty; on the day of their birthday they’ve been summoned to attend the Gathering where they’ll be mated with two Alpha werewolves. Whereas Scarlet’s story was direct with the attraction from Scarlet to the guys and the guys to Scarlett, this one has some bumps and hiccups along the road.

As one of the Marked humans whose destiny has already been decided, Gabriella doesn’t easily accept her fate. She puts up a respectable fight (be it verbal and downright hilarious), she’s not going down without letting somebody.. anybody.. everybody know that even thought she might be a little hippy that doesn’t make her desperate. Begin as you mean to go on!

Berke and Jack are Gabby’s mates. The guys know it, Gabby knows it but Berke and Jack have some personal demons that need be solved before they can bond, then mate, with Gabby. What set the tone for me was Gabby, she’s a strong but likable personality – which is a hard balance to make and Kyle did a commendable job. Sometimes, I’ll get burned when heroines start out strong then all of a sudden they’ll be stunned stupid by a penis, but not Gabby. She didn’t allow herself to become a pushover with the guys and I enjoyed her antics to the point that I found myself laughing out loud during some of the scenes with her and her sisters. In spite of this being a short read, I got a pretty satisfying idea of Gabby, Berke and Jack’s personalities and what drove them to their choices. There was just enough angst and passion to get and hold my interest to the end.

Before I go, there’s a funny scene (tears running down the face funny) with Gabby and some chick who’s trying to take one of her men – I didn’t know what ‘Turbo Jam’ was/is but now I do, just sayin’.

Happy Reading Folks!
