Just an avid reader. Mostly SF/Fantasy, some hobbies, paranormal, urban fantasy and lighter, fluffier things.
Finished first story/novella in this omnibus — Shades of Gray by Katie MacAlister — and I enjoyed it well enough (beach read?). Between a 2½ and 3 star read for me.
It's set in her Dark Ones universe wth expected elements. Meaning usually what can border on too much insta-lust and fated-mate stuff for me (better for me in shorter works) redeemed by author's humor and by the twists on getting around some of fated stuff and supernatural doings she throws in.
This one was Noelle (a Guardian) and Gray's tale. The insta-lust/"Beloved" part made Noelle very determined, presumably to switch up gender types.
