Synopsis: Destiny will find you.
Izzy has always loved the freedom and adventure of life on the road, but she’s recently decided to settle down—as much as a rogue wolf can. When her boyfriend gets her a job working at a hot Shifter bar, she runs into the last person on earth she expected to see again.
Jericho isn’t the famous rock star he once was, though he still plays in a local band and loves to party. Beautiful women come and go, but music is his only passion—until a sassy redhead named Isabelle Monroe shows up unexpectedly.
Fate reunites two former friends living with one foot in the present and the other in the past. But will they have a future when one of them is forced to choose between life and death? Old habits die hard, and sometimes the toughest addictions to shake are the ones that control our hearts.
I'm not one to gravitate towards a story about a musician - but Jericho was fun to read about. Obviously I had to read this since it's a part of the series, but I'm also glad that I did. I like Jericho. He's one of the Cole brothers in the Weston Pack, a former famous rock star, now a local musician that tries to keep things low-key. He's not perfect, but he also shows his strength as he's really changed his life around. He came out of an addictive situation that a lot musicians deal with. Drugs, women, etc. It was all bad for him. At the root of it, he's a good guy and he proves that over and over in this book.
Five Weeks has a strong and swiftly moving plot that kept me wanting more. There was love, and action, and danger, and so many other things that kept me engaged through out the entire audiobook. We got to see characters that were familiar to us in previous installments, which was a joy. I like when a series settles in and we not only get a featured couple, but all of the secondary stories continue on and the other characters are present and relevant in the current book. Dannika Dark does a great job keeping the entire Cole family in each book.
Add to that the amazingly strong narration. I'm really enjoying Dannika Dark's stories paired with and Nicole Poole's narration. Nicole Poole turned out another enjoyable performance in Five Weeks. Her ability to stay consistent with all of the characters over multiple books is noteworthy. Over several books sometimes the distinctness of the characters can get murky, but not in this case. She manages this large cast of characters seamlessly. Having now listened to the first 3 titles, I am hooked on the Seven Series! I'll be listening to the next installment very soon.
I enjoyed both the story-line and the narration in Five Weeks and I recommend this series on audiobook for paranormal romance fans. Have you read this series? If so, please tell me if you are enjoying it as much as I am! If you haven't read or listened to it yet, you should be adding this series to you TBR list.
