Julia’s 🎩🎩🎩 hat review:
I’m on the fence about Claimed. On one hand I liked some things, but on the other I didn’t like some things. I loved the whole instamate thing that Cade and Mya had. I’m a huge fan of finding your true mate in paranormal books. Cade was pretty great, he understood that Mya knew nothing of what she truly was and did things like I would. Just kinda threw her in the fire and hoped for the best. He then took the time and explained things to Mya and was considerate of how she feels. Cade made sure he set his own wants and needs aside for Mya. Now Mya, she comes across waaaay to harsh. Not just headstrong, much more intense than that. Instead of coming across as an Alpha or dominant wolf she comes off as self centered and mean. I just could not connect with her at all. But truthfully that seemed to be the personality of every dominant female wolf. Making them all pretty much characters I really just didn’t like. The story also unfolded way too fast. I’m still confused on who everyone is and what pack they belong to.
I did enjoy the connection Cade and Mya ended up having and that was what kept me reading long after I wanted to put it down. I have a lot of unanswered questions, not just about the plot but about Mya and her family. Overall, it was a quick read that had a few problems for me but ultimately did keep me until the end.
To Michelle there’s no better place than between pages of a book. Growing up, she had a passion for reading science fiction, music, and anything that was creative. Someday, she thought there would always be a place for her “In the Final Frontier”.
After some thought, Michelle decided to live out her fantasy world through her stories. Always remember, when life throws you a curveball, all you need to do is fly away to another world in the pages of books.
