Broken Lynx is the fourth stand-alone book in the Hotel Safari series. I haven’t read any others in the series, but I really don’t think that matters. The premise: An Irish nurse gets a job at the Hotel Safari Lodge in Kenya, where she meets a sexy shape-shifting German and falls in love.
To be honest, it isn’t the best. It’s a pretty short book, so the story starts super quickly and there isn’t much of a plot and barely any character development. I didn’t really understand the need for Hans to be a shape-shifter – it didn’t add much to the story – and Deidre was way too chill about the whole thing. If I saw a chap change into a Lynx in front of me I probably wouldn’t be totally eager to be his friend. And then, why are there other shape-shifters here? Why is this lodge full of men who change into animals? Maybe that makes more sense if you read the whole series, I don’t know.
Then there’s the romance. Both characters went from feeling platonic and friendly to fancying the pants off each other extremely quickly (like, the space of a page). There just wasn’t enough substance.
However, if you want a quick, raunchy romance, does plot and substance really matter? Probably not.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
