BOOK REVIEW...Straydog by Kodilynn Calhoun

Title:  Straydog
Author: Kodilynn Calhoun
Publication Date: September 15th 2013
Ebook/Book Copy Source:  Author

Plot:    Book 1 of the Straydog Trilogy

17-year-old Remie Winters dreams of graduating high school, marrying her boyfriend, and starting a family of her own, so when she ends up pregnant, she’s ecstatic. Sure she’s young, but she wants this baby more than anything—but upon spilling the news, her world is flipped upside down. Her boyfriend dumps her, her dad flips his lid and kicks her out and nothing seems ease the ache in her heart.

Until Torsten Stone comes back into her life—charming, gentle, and oh, so sweet, he’s exactly what she needs.

Torsten’s loved Remie his entire life, but he was never brave enough to tell her. Now he has the chance to make up for lost time, to hold her fragile heart in his hands, and as he falls deeper in love with Remie and the little life growing inside of her, he knows he wants her. Not just for a little while; he wants her by his side, forever.

But Torsten has a secret—one that could shatter their newfound relationship if she ever found out. Because Remie’s all too human and Tor isn’t human at all…


The good: Interesting plot; decent pacing; likable characters

The bad: I wouldn't say this is bad, but there was a bit too much "drama" at times that made me either become overwhelmed or feel super bad for the main heroine.

My thoughts:
Over all, I did like this book but I agree with the other reviewer, Road, that Ms. Calhoun puts Reine through so much!!

Albeit, I liked the plot and the colorful array of characters, I just felt that certain things could have been lessened a bit.


My Rating:

-Overall : 8
-Plot : 8
-Writing : 8
-Characters : 8
-Cover : 8
