WHO'S AFRAID TOO? By Maria Lewis

Title: Who’s Afraid Too?
Series: Tommi Grayson #2
Author: Maria Lewis
Publisher: Hachette Australia
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 10, 2017


Tommi Grayson: all bark, all bite . . . and now she's BACK! She’s never exactly been a normal girl. Bright blue hair, a mysterious past and barely controlled rage issues have a way of making a woman stand out. She really wanted to find out about her father’s side of the family, but now, after the sh*t show that was her family reunion, Tommi needs to get gone. She's spent the last few weeks trying to understand her heritage - the one that comes with a side order of fur as well as her Maori history and how she can connect to it.

But she can only escape for so long - when an unspeakable evil, thought long destroyed, returns, Tommi needs every bit of the skills she's learned. With the help of allies both old and new (including the immortal and incredibly attractive Lorcan), she's going to take the fight to the enemy …

From Scotland to New Zealand and on to Berlin, Germany – wherever Tommi goes the fur is sure to fly.

Mixing elements of urban fantasy and paranormal romance with an adrenalin-infused shot of adventure, Who’s Afraid, Too will delight fans of Charlaine Harris, Patricia Briggs, Keri Arthur and Darynda Jones.

My Review (Goodreads)

I voluntarily read an arc of this book. I hadn't read book 1 so felt a little like I was playing catch up in the first chapter or so. However the author did a good job of providing enough detail that I got the gist of what must have happened. 

I rate this between 4 and 5 stars. I liked the heroine Tommi, I found her fun, believable and likable. I felt the connection she had with Lorcan but there wasn't quite enough emotion in the book for me - which is why it didn't hit the full 5 stars. There wasn't much reflection on or discussion of emotions and feelings.

That said, however, the plot is amazing, full of twists and turns and action and the supporting characters are well developed and add extra interest/depth to the story. The book is really well written, with a very easy to read style. I loved how this part of the story tied up but that a new adventure to look forward to was dangled before us. I for one can't wait to read it.
