“He had no right to deny her happiness because he had issues.” -V.A. Dold, Simon
Simon has been trapped in wolf form ever since he returned from his tour of duty. Rose has not had the best of pasts and she runs from relationships. But when Travis, a crazy shifter with a plan and an employer comes after Simon’s mate, he will make sure to protect her. Find the official description on Goodreads.
It was amazing to see Simon’s past from his perspective. Hearing about it and experiencing it are two different things. Being taken into Simon’s past also let us understand more completely why he was stuck in wolf form and how important touch is to the shifters. It definitely made me empathize with him much more than I did in Cade.
Plus in Simon, we also got to see more interactions between some of our favorite characters(Cade and Anna, for one). It just made my day to be able to see more of their happy ending.
There was a bit of repetition in the beginning but since we got it from Rose’s or Simon’s perspective, it didn't seem too repetitive at all. In fact, it made things much more clearer as we could “hear” their thoughts. It definitely made things more interesting.
Then there was Rose. Again, she wasn't a skinny stick of a girl and she was far from perfect. But she was lovable and that made for a good book. Simon was also a gentleman and he also was courageous. Simon was working hard to get past his issues and it was great to see him finally succeed. Plus Rose’s reaction to the whole supernatural’s thing was just hilarious. I loved it!
Both Cade and Simon were different books from each other and there were very few similarities except in characters and parents meddling. And I have a feeling that Stefan’s book will be different as well as hilarious just from the sneak peek we got.
Simon is a great addition to the Le Beau Brothers series, and I can’t wait to read more!
