How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days

Right off the bat, the narrative read like a historical, but in a way that it sounded like a bard was reading me a story. It made it a little difficult to get immersed in the story because the narrative style kept reminding me that I was reading a book. Another difficulty I had was in determining what age group the story was written for, not that it stopped me from reading it either way. To me, it seems that the story is written in a YA tone, but I was surprised by the high heat level. It was an interesting story, and it definitely improved after the first few pages of overwhelming backstory on the world we are thrust into. If you enjoy stories with an awkward “first time” scene, this one takes the cake. It was actually so awkward that I was a bit mortified for both of them – but again, if that’s something you enjoy, then you will love this scene. I will probably read the next book in this series, because I am intrigued by the world and the characters, it’s just the narrative style that isn’t quite what I usually read.
