Review of Seven years by Dannika Dark

Seven years ago, my world ended.
Seven years later, my new life began.

It's been seven years since Lexi Knight lost her brother in a tragic accident. On the anniversary of his death, her brother's best friend shows up unexpectedly - a man she hasn't seen since the funeral. He is no longer the boy Lexi once knew, but a dangerous-looking man with tattoos and dark secrets. He broke her trust and abandoned her family, yet what he reveals makes it impossible to stay angry. Lexi has been secretly infatuated with Austin since childhood, so finding out he's a Shifter just makes him sexier. Dammit.

Austin Cole has returned to the city where he grew up, and just in time. He's lived a hard life these past seven years, and the shadows of his past are threatening to destroy Lexi's family. It's time that she learned the truth about her brother, but there is a shocking twist that Austin never saw coming. Now he must protect her family when her mother and sister wind up in mortal danger. Will Lexi learn to accept the truth about who he is, and can Austin salvage a relationship from the ruins of their past?

Destiny will find you.

What if Shifters really did exist, and lived in secret?

“A man should be more original than a bouquet of roses and a box of chocolates. Flowers die and sugar sticks to your hips like a permanent record to a criminal.”

“said, as if there was never a doubt. I walked around and hugged April so tight she let out a small fart.”

This was a pretty good book. I really liked Austin Cole!!! There were some fun twists too. The main character kind of irritated me, but other than that it was a good read. I wish the characters got together earlier in the book, that's my only other complaint. There was too much of them misreading and misunderstanding and intercommunicating, that when they finally got together, I was like finally! This could have happened at like 50% instead of 80%.
