Summary

April Frost is a compassionate young woman with a steady job and ambitious goals. But the harder she runs away from her past, the more it threatens to destroy her. When three strangers enter her life, April is forced to face her demons, and it's a battle she may not win. Private investigators in the Breed world are men who take risks, and Reno Cole is no exception. As a Shifter, he's expected to control his inner animal. But lately his wolf has been venturing dangerously close to the city, and he's about to discover why. When Reno is reintroduced to a family friend, the attraction is immediate. April captivates him with her secretive eyes and resilient spirit. She's also in trouble, and despite the fact that she's a human, Reno can't turn his back on her. April is caught between two worlds: One that threatens to bury her dreams and another that could fulfill them. Can she trust the wolf at her door and find the courage to overcome her demons?

Critic reviews

"A fractured and reluctant heroine, plus a reticent alpha hero equals an awesome story of choice, retribution and love. Six Months has it all!" (Tamara Rose Blodgett, author of Blood Reign)

New author for me and I'm hooked!!!

This is the second in the series and I'm heading into the rest at full tilt! The story is light but with beautiful messy human twists that are written with compassion and humour. There is angst, danger, teasing, emotion, anger, sarcasm, stunning alpha males with cheeky overinflated egos and a gorgeous little six year old that steals the lime light. My one regret? That I didn't listen to this ages ago!!!

a good book to listen to

I enjoyed the story. April did get a little annoying at times. She had been dealt a hard blow in life and deals well with it. The storyline was engaging and it was nice to keep up with other characters in the pack. They are all developing as the stories progress and become a little more three dimensional with each encounter. I love Trevor and felt he could have had an even bigger role.

I love this story about Reno and April .. it shows that some can be loved without judgement of their past. ...

Like magnets

What does Nicole Poole bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Brilliant voices, very different from each other.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Full range of emotions.

Any additional comments?

April and Reno are like magnets; they are pulled together by desire, and April pushes them apart continually. Reno is a strong man, brimming with hidden, complex emotions, while April is a strong woman, desperately trying to hide in a weak woman’s guise. I didn’t like April; I found her irritating and thoughtless to those around her, getting herself into trouble and taking the least rational option available. My dislike for the character did not take anything away from the story. I rooted for Reno to get the girl, I sat on the edge of my seat when Sanchez was in play; I even felt sorry for Madox who seemed like quite a decent guy. I love the series and really enjoyed seeing them all in play. I recommend the audio version because the narrator has a vast range of voices.

Worth the credit

First let me say I have never written a review even after hundreds of books - this series deserves it! It reminds me of the BDB series ....really great!

This particular book is outstanding...better than the first. I can't wait to get to the next one. The only issue I had was that April ...well I just wanted to shake her!! Her voice is annoying after hours of listening; she was not a main character in the first book so I didn't notice that much but the book is worth the irritation and definitely worth a credit!

Overall ~ A Great Story!!

I really love the "shifter" world Dannika Dark has created, and how the characters are more down to earth. They are not all sexy, multimillionaires with lots of toys but more like the average person with issues you can relate to like needing home and car repairs, or personal issues like breaking up with someone or being betrayed.

This story is mainly about April struggling with these types of issues while her relationship with Reno grows. However, her situation goes from bad to worse when loan sharks start coming after her and threatening her over her late grandmother's debt. April ends up making some hard decisions on how to deal with these dangerous loan sharks.

This story has a strong presence of the other Weston Pack members and we get to see more of their personalities which I love.

The thing I liked least about this story was the narration. It's had for me to say anything negative about a narrator because I know it is hard work to be the voice for so many different characters; however, I had to start and stop this story several times because of April's voice; it sounded so depressing.

Overall, I really did enjoy the story and it is worth a credit.

Struggling through this one

I'm struggling through this book. It's not the story, I'm intrigued and want to find out what happens to April and Reno. But MAN... the narrator makes April sound like a dimwit with no backbone whatsoever. I honestly cringe at her voice sometimes. I get that she's had a hard life, and that bad things keep happening, but... she also doesn't seem to have any courage to make her life better. It's not the kind of story I like to listen to.

I do like that the voices for the characters are the same in book 1as book 2, though. I can immediately tell who is talking by the voice, even if they are not a main part of the story anymore. It's well done. I just really don't like how weak and trampled April is becoming.

amazing.

I love this series, and find all of Dark's work captivating. She dives to the depths of human connection, while thrilling me around every turn.

Love Reno! April is a relatable character.

I truly enjoyed this book. The emotion is this book is intense. Readers should be warned, the story isn't super cheery and bubbly. It had many depressing moments. Five Months is about a young shy woman who has been delt a bad hand and a half. I can relate to the April in some ways like drowning in debt, living in a not-so-nice place, car troubles as well as being awkward and timid around men. Poole does an excellent job narrating April's character, making her seem naive and timid. She's not the Alpha female Lexi was. Reno is a dominate , yet understanding and compassionate. The ending is not what i would typically expect from a paranormal romance and for that reason i have respect for the author and i love this book. It brought a sense of realism to the story (i know i know... realism isnt the point in a paranormal romance lol). I kept expecting April to suddenly become immortal or something as thats what happens in most books I've read. But to my surprise she remains human and Reno is not. So the ending is happy, yet it carries a bit of sadness due to April's mortality.

Lots of storyline surprises

I liked reading this. I cried once because some things went on that were sad. I applaud the author for showing bits and pieces of the real worlds troubles that go on below the radar of most. The story was still resolved nicely. There are characters that seem prominent for the next books that I’m about to read soon.

Great Book. Weakest one in series but worth it.

April is just too whiney. Not enough between Reno and April to fill in the time between April's catastrophes. Not enough info about Reno. I love this series and this author. Don't judge the rest on this book. It is worth reading, just not the best, by far.

Second is not better

I really wanted to like this one. The first in the series was okay and I saw that the author was setting something up for a long series. In this second novel the main character is deeply annoying. She just allows everyone to walk all over her. She stumbles around not telling anyone that she has people after her and goes to an abandoned warehouse to meet a guy that already creeped her out who does that? She is winey and I didn't care at all what happened to her. The narrator isn't bad as a rule, but her choice for April's voice was bad. She made her some like a 12 year old Marylyn Monroe and it was hard to listen the whole way through. There were so many little things that I couldn't stand about April! She was too dumb to live and needed constant saving through out the book, she allowed any man in her life tell her what to do, an example is her changing her hair because Reno wanted it natural. It's her hair she stated she had always hated the natural color and as soon as he says let it grow out boom she is growing it out. I was looking for a new series, but if this is the way the series is headed I'm out.

Not my favorite

What did you love best about Six Months?

The continuation of the storyline.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked Reno, he had baggage but when he found the person he wanted, he left his past behind and went forward toward his future.

What does Nicole Poole bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her voices for the characters are similar but as she reads the story you do know who's who.

Any additional comments?

Even though this wasn't my favorite, I think we had to find out what was going on with April and Reno. I have no problem saying the Seven series is worth your credits.
