Book Review: Charming by Dannika Dark

Charming
(Seven Series, #6.5)
by Dannika Dark

Blurb:


After seven hundred years, Prince has acquired everything a Packmaster could desire. But when he meets the enchanting Nadia Kozlov, he realizes there’s one thing he doesn’t have: answers. Prince owes his life to a man he hasn’t seen in centuries, and Nadia holds the key to his whereabouts, because that man is her father.

Destinies collide when Nadia’s sister shows up unexpectedly. Katarina is a skilled bounty hunter, hot on the trail of a nefarious outlaw who turns out to be Prince’s old nemesis. Prince teams up with Nadia’s sister to track down the Mage, but the real game of cat and mouse is already underway as sparks fly between Prince and the cunning bounty hunter.

The only trouble? Nadia wants him too.

In the Seven series timeline, this full-length novel is 6.5.
However, Charming can also be enjoyed as a stand-alone.

Nina's Review:

Here is what I LOVE the most about Dannika’s writing: her ability to make every character’s story count in a big way. This book kept me engaged the whole time and left me thoroughly satisfied. In this story, I went in expecting to get a redemption for Prince, and redeemed he was! It felt though, like the story focused more on the twins then on Prince, and that was a great treat in my opinion, because it transported me in to the story to see him - not only through my eyes, but also through the eyes of such a charismatic character.

Katarina is bold, giving, tough, and unapologetically genuine. She is sentimental and her heart is fierce when it comes to protecting the ones she loves. Her twin Nadia though, gives much import to the opinion of others. She portrays an image of class and strength, and although she wants to appear in control she fights hard to remain unforgiving and protect her heart. They are polar opposites and sometimes enrage one another, but no matter what they are united by an unbreakable bond. At the end of the previous novel (Two Minutes), I was so disappointed in Prince. Albeit for just a hot minute. I thought of him as an opportunistic prick at first, but after I digested the story I came to give him the benefit of the doubt. I have to force myself to remember that sometimes there is more to what we see in the surface.

All in all, I loved how Dannika developed Prince’s story to show where he was coming from. Even if many don’t agree with his way of being it’s hard not to respect it knowing his background. It was good to see him be stricken by true love and realize that no matter how much we try to control or rationally think that we know what we want, when love hits you, it gives you a choice to surrender and feel uniquely dazzled or just defy it and miss your chance to be truly happy. Dannika did right by Prince, the twins, and by her readers. I thought the story started, developed, and ended perfectly.
