This book is all over the place. I am not even sure I am attaching correct tags here.
- Urban history, for example. This could have taken place anywhere. In the woods or in the mountains, for all I care. But there was a mentioning of some humans in cars and apartment complexes so... I guess it's on an urban-y side.
- Law enforcement, PI. Not really. Bert is a beta (read: a butler and a cook and a nanny) to an asshole who happens to be in charge of PBI (paranormal bureau of investigations).
- Secret agent, spy, politician, diplomat. Same - Bert, the PBI asshole's beta, is sent on a diplomatic mission he has no prior training for, obvisly (see "beta" definition above).
There is no chemistry between MC's. None. Except for Will proclaiming his undying love for Bert every couple of pages or less.
And then there is all this talking.... I am surprised the characters (all of them, except for the babies) didn't talk their heads off.
A very frustrating and disappointing read :/ 2 stars.
