KEEPING DALLAS was one of those relaxing stories where you know what to expect but still want to get to know the new world and hang out with the associated characters. As such, it more than did the job.
Dallas is a submissive wolf who has found himself a perfect Dom as far as he's concerned. Unfortunately, Laurence is not a wolf and Dallas' Alpha as well as his pack do have issues with that.
Both Dallas as well as Laurence are keeping secrets from each other, despite the great chemistry they have and how much they enjoy each other. It's difficult to expose themselves when they actually care and can't be sure of the other's reaction. Of course there is also the fact that Dallas can't share his secrets with a simple but very dominant human.
As it always happens, their secrets come to light, bad guys swim out to the surface and our heroes save the day, but they do bond in the process, as it should be.
My favorite part of this story was the beginning. I loved the sparks between the main characters as well as the reluctance to expose themselves. It created that dose of mystery as well as anticipation that just makes the book so much better for me. The characters were the perfect dominant and submissive and I really expected the great story telling to continue. But the plot focused on the bad guys and suddenly everything rushed to the end. The magic was gone where it mattered the most and the book turned into a typical shifter/magic story about mates, bonding and quick disposal of the threat.
This one was better than the last few books I've read from Amber Kell, and if you are a fan, I would say go for it. It's a series that has potential. But if it's your first try, I would suggest Supernatural Mates. I loved the first book in that series.
