Return to Kadenburg by T.E. Ridener

Series: The Kadenburg Shifters #2
Arc courtesy of T.E. Ridener in exchange for an honest review and taking part in this blog tour. Thank you!

Book 2 takes place right after Book 1, The Truth about Kadenburg.  I read them consecutively so it felt like one big book in my opinion. I'll try to focus only on the second book in this review though.

The story evokes the same feelings as the first one. I love reading paranormal romance stories especially ones with twists in them. Shifting bears? Yeah, I'm sure that's pretty different from typical stories. I enjoyed it. the romance and chemistry between the two main characters is also still present in the book. The focus has shifted though from Presley and Lorcan though. Enter their childhood friend, Rutley. 

I feel like the author thought to herself, what can Rutley be so that he makes the biggest splash when he jumps into the story. That's why he's a werewolf hunter! Well more like a shifter hunter. If you need reminding, Lorcan and Presley are shifters!!! If it's still not clear, THIS MEANS DRAMA! And as a reader, anticipating drama is always lovely. Rutley is a character that makes me laugh. He seems so serious at the start. I kept thinking what a cocky fellow he is. Then the action picks up and i feel like Rutley becomes so overwhelmed in the action that he turns into a silly boy. He was the comedic relief for sure. 

The story consists of many side stories and I had a lot of questions while reading this story. Why's Presley's aunt with her enemies? What happened to Presley's mother? Why is Colin such a mean person?  Why is Colin trying to pick up Presley when she's already his alpha's mate? and the most important question I kept asking while reading the story: What the hell is Rutley doing now??

Return to Kadenburg had nothing special in terms of story outline and plot. Typical shifter story. It's the dynamics and relationships between the characters that makes this story special. There are so many connections with each character having their own reasoning as to their actions. The ending to the story though was absolutely phenomenal. We ride up and down a hill of emotions. Just when you think everything is going fine something else happens and there's a major cliffhanger. I think this is just something the author does because the first one was like that too. They're always a surprise though which is really good because cliffhangers should be surprises. I'm not saying I like cliffhangers but they are effective in making you anticipate the next installment so you can figure out what happens. 

I think if you're a fan of shifter or paranormal romance stories and you're looking for a good book to read by all means give this a shot. I don't think it's remarkably unique though. Just a good story with it's own take on shfiters.
