    The latest Primal urban romantic suspense fantasy is a strong tale

    Vampire Sidonie Wolf and werewolf Joe Bleythin fall in love. Both know their respective species outlaws a relationship between them; the penalty is death. Fearing for her Joe, Sid sacrifices her heart by modifying his memories of her and their love. Soon afterward, Joe shuts down their private investigative partnership and breaks up with her. Joe joins vampire Tobias Strahan's Dark Angels, a group dedicated to protecting paranormal species. <BR/><BR/>Meanwhile Sid's father, Antony has cherished from the shadows for six decades the human Rose; he loves her but is forbidden to do anything about his feelings by his species for the last 60 years. When someone kidnaps his Rose, Tony pleads with his daughter to save her life. She is teamed up with Dark Angel Joe to find and rescue Rose. Still angry with her for what she did to him, Joe also realizes she could not erase his love for her or conceal her love for him.<BR/><BR/>The latest Primal (see HEAT and DESIRES) urban romantic suspense fantasy is a strong tale of star crossed lovers. Sid thought she was doing what was best for Joe while he felt she betrayed their trust. Their acrimonious beginning makes vampires and werewolves seem genuine in Susan Sizemore¿s Primal realm. Fans will enjoy this refreshing second chance at love thriller,; that is if they survive the enemy and their two species.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    Poorly written, terrible plot

    A few pages into this I was just about convinced it was a part of a series because the characters had so many confusing conversations concerning previous events, relationships and customs that weren't properly explained. However, there isn't much indicating that's the case which leads me to believe that this may just have been badly written. The explanations finally came but far later than they should have, throwing off pacing and plot. <BR/><BR/>The fires that occur in the beginning of the story and the reasons for the Dark Angels being there is glossed over and never properly detailed. The actions and reasoning of the villains is also never fully explained. The events of the fire lead to Joe and Sid meeting again but the reason for continuing to be in each other's presence is so highly contrived. Joe is assigned to help Sid remember a past event (also never explained) simply by hanging around her, the fact that he never truly accomplishes this is ignored, quite possibly because it never made much sense in the first place. <BR/><BR/>In the middle, the story detours into the romance of two other characters. While they did provide the answers to some of the mysteries I couldn't help but wonder if I was still reading the same book. A whole new plot emerges in the middle and becomes the driving force, and Sid and Joe become fairly secondary. Worse yet, this subplot of a WWII romantic rescue does not fit into the rest of the plot at all. It felt like a poor attempt to fit two different stories together.

    Awesome Series!!!!

    I have every book in this series so far. Very well written and awesome story lines in each book. Susan Sizemore is a very good writer and I would suggest her books to anyone looking for a little fantasy in their story lines. I have read all the books in the series at least twice. Great for anyone's collection. Do read and enjoy :))

    Luving the PRIMES

    I picked up a few of the books by accident. But I fell head over heals for these prime males. The author is upbeat and you can get lost in the book straight from the begining. I went out and got the rest of the books in the Primal Series and I must say, that all are a great read.

    Book review

    This was a wonderful book. I love the way Susan writes. Just curl up in front of a fire, or on the beach and lose lose yourself in the book.

    Primal Needs - A Total Disappointment

    I was totally disappointed in this book. There were to many flash backs. Flash backs of Sid and Joe and of Rose and Anthony. There were also three stories going on at the same time. I got tired just figuring out the plot. Susan Sizemore use to be an automatic buy for me, but no longer
