    So I saw this on NetGalley and requested immediately. Hey, it's

    So I saw this on NetGalley and requested immediately. Hey, it's Lauren Dane and I've enjoyed most of her books. However, I failed to notice that this is the third book in an on-going series. Nevertheless, I bought the other books in the series, since my series OCD demanded I do so before starting this one.

    I am glad that I took the time to do that. Although Lauren Dane does give a bit of back story of what happened in the last book, I don't think that it was enough for me to read it as a stand alone book.

    The blurb does a great job of explaining what the story is about so I'll go directly to my review. Although I've enjoyed most of the books by Lauren Dane, it seems that her paranormal ones just don't mesh well with my taste. The paranormal ones I've read have only gotten a 3 stars rating or lower. And for this title my rating has not changed.

    I'm going to this one a bit differently, because I am stumped in what to say.

    Pros

    - Great character development with Molly. I felt that Gage needed a bit more work though.

    - Wonderful account of the struggles The Others have had to face since their 'outing' to humans.

    - Good development and resolution to the plot.

    - Near perfect pace to the story. Although it dragged in places, Lauren Dane managed to maintain the pace of the story enough for me to not let it affect my enjoyment of the story or my rating.

    Cons

    - Too much sex. Yes, I said that. I just found that some of the sex scenes added nothing to the story and didn't fit the characters personalities as portrayed in the book.

    - The romance and the plot didn't flow seamlessly. To me it felt like the romance was added as an afterthought, rather than being a part of the story as a whole. This wouldn't matter so much if the book wasn't marketed as a Paranormal Romance.

    - Gage got on my nerves with his reluctance to admit that was in love with Molly. His admission of love came to late, in my opinion. This just served me to distance myself from him, which made it harder to connect with him fully. Not something I like to happen with my main characters.

    All in all, Going Under is a good, enjoyable paranormal book with a little romance thrown into the mix to appease the romantic in me, but not enough for me to fall in love with it.

    I received this title from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange of my honest opinion.
