A Touch Of Danger by Elaine White ARC Book Review

A Touch of Danger (Surviving Vihaan #1)

Disclaimer : I received an ARC of this book in exchange of an honest review.

This book was unexpected, unfortunately not in the best way possible. I read paranormal romances or romances in general to put me in a good mood, to read a love story where I know for a fact that my OTP (one true pairing) will end up together.
I went into this novel not knowing much about it which did make it a lot better than it would've been otherwise.
I loved Drew and how he is willing to do anything to keep his family safe, I enjoyed the romance overall though Rylee was way too oblivious at times and that felt unrealistic because of how he is presented and portrayed the rest of the time.
Another good thing was the unique take on shifter romance, and shifters transformation. While it was unique, it was also confusing and I felt like I was jumping in the dark following the author who had forgotten to explain a lot of how things work during the transformation stages which left me confused and feeling like I had skipped a chapter or two. It was also a heavily packed book, honestly a bit too sad at times for me. The cover made me believe this would be a happy, cute romance. What I got was an insta love with a rocky relationship at times, sad moments and devastating consequences.
This is not a "I will escape to an happy place reading this" kind of book. That being said, overall it's not a bad story, the world building was well done for the most part.
In the end it is not a story I will pick back up to read favourite moments or parts of it.
If you are looking for a unique take on shifters and an emotional rollercoaster of a book I recommend this, if on the contrary you want cute moments with a fluffy happy ending then don't pick this up !

3/5 stars
