Book review: Bitter Disenchantment (Coveted 0.4) by Shawntelle Madison
Werewolf Natalya Stravinsky's outspoken sidekick, Aggie McClure, is featured in this prequel novella. Before Agatha set foot in South Toms River, New Jersey, she had the fight of her life to face. Destined to be the alpha female over her Manhattan pack, Aggie was fully prepared to take on her role until her father arranges a marriage without her consent. She wants out–but the only way is with money–something her new controlling husband won't give her to escape. But such odds never kept a wolf like Aggie down. To sever the twisted tie, she finds herself pitted against raging wood nymphs and backstabbing brownies in an underground supernatural fighting ring. With every victory, the sweet taste of freedom is closer, but her husband isn't willing to let her go that easily. Until the very end, Aggie must fight for the one thing she's never had: a choice
This is a prequel novella to Shawntelle Madison's Coveted series. As it says in the blurb this is Natalya Stravinky's friend Aggie. Aggie is a bad ass and in this novella she's got to be tough because her controlling father is set to marry her off. She resists at first then gives in when she thinks there might be a chance it's a love match. For a while everything feels good. She might actually have found the right man but then it all comes crashing down when he reveals his actual plans. Aggie is pretty much locked out of everything in life she cares about and set to be a trophy wife. Not going to happen. Aggie has to find a way to get out of this mess and she finds a friend or two to lead her in the right direction. It took me a while to get into this but by the end i was hooked and we at the end are left hanging a little as we have to wonder what's up for Aggie next. 3 out of 5 stars for Bitter Disenchantment by Shawntelle Madison.
