Review: Four-Letter Words (Haven, #8) by Gabrielle Evans

Four-Letter Words (Haven, #8)Four-Letter Words by Gabrielle Evans
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

There were simply too many things going on that distracted my focus on the main story. I wish it were more, but I can honestly say now that I wish there had been less.

For Four-Letter Words (Haven, #8) by Gabrielle Evans, Zasha Gershwin lives a rigidly controlled life. He doesn’t see anything wrong with being prepared and organized, and he certainly doesn’t have time for such frivolous things as love. He cares for Thane, and he’s certainly attracted to the witch, but that’s just how the mating bond works.

While his mate may not remember their previous life together, Thane Braddock has no trouble recalling every moment, right up to their tragic end. Now, he has a second chance to make everything right. Unfortunately, he’s making all new mistakes this time around.

Evil lurks to the west, spreading its shadow across the desert, and the races hover on the verge of war. When the Braddocks are called to answer the rising threat, Thane and Zasha’s turbulent relationship will be pushed to its breaking point. Can they rekindle the old flame before it’s too late? Or is history destined to repeat itself?

There were simply too many things going on that distracted my focus on the main story:

1. The constant flit from one life to another when they remembered their past lives were just too much for me to endure.

2. Yes, I have read the other Haven Series books, but I still had to go back and go through some of them, especially #7, before I could continue reading.

3. The introduction of more characters made me think that this may be another endless series with no ending.

I could state more here, but basically, these are the three top most things that bothered me.

There is one redeeming incident that made me laugh and is the main reason why I gave this an additional .5 stars from the original 1.0 stars, that was when the witches brothers started acting like kids, pre-adolescent kids, who were not only complete idiots, but childish as well. Unfortunately, for this one time when I did smile and read on, the rest of the time I just flitted over the book, just to finish it.

And no, the addition of a lot of sex scenes did nothing for me. At All.
