(Mis)fortune by Melissa Haag


Our world is being judged and even they remain unaware.

Michelle, another young woman with an unexplainable gift, finds herself surrounded by the previously undiscovered werewolf society. Kept prisoner for the predictions that torment her, she meekly follows orders waiting for her opportunity to run. When her stepfather dies, she takes a chance and escapes.

After witnessing Blake, her captor, grow canines, she knows he will do anything to find her. She needs a place to hide and someone to listen to her predictions so her head doesn’t explode, but knows there’s nowhere she can hide forever, and no one who can protect her… unless she can find someone just like him.

Part of the fur wearing faction wants to use her, another part strives to keep her safe. The second book of the Judgement of the Six series will raise more questions about the purpose of these gifted few and Michelle will need to fight for answers. Will what she discovers be enough to help her keep those she loves safe from an emerging evil?

My Review: 5 Stars

Michelle has the gift of premonitions. Her mom dies shortly after her youngest brother is born and her step-father's "associate", Blake, use her to find out where to invest in the stock market. She tries to resist a few times but Blake uses her brothers Liam and Aden to "persuade" her to use her gift. She is locked away for 4 years and has to endure the horrible treatment of Blake and do whatever he tells her to do.

One night things change and she comes to realize that Blake is not human... he is a werewolf. He tells her that he has waited long enough and she WILL claim one of them as her mate. She wakes up the next morning to find that her step-father is dead and he has left everything to her with a note to run fast and far! She doesn't even take time to think... she grabs her brothers and runs!

While on the run she comes face to face with Emmitt. She can't explain why but she is drawn to him. With Blake on her trail she can't afford any distractions. But there is just something about Emmitt and she's both excited and scared when he comes to her rescue. He will be by her side as long as she needs him to be but she is not sure how she feels about endangering him, Jim and Nana Wini. What she doesn't realize is that she is Emmitt's mate and nothing will ever keep him from being right at her side. 

I really enjoyed watching Michelle and Emmitt's relationship evolve. She has been mistreated by every male she has ever met so it is hard for her to trust Emmitt but she knows deep down that she can... it'll just take some time and of course patience from Emmitt. Jim and Nana were also an added bonus. Their relationship with the boys was fun to watch. I will admit I laughed out loud a few times with all the little antics that happened throughout the book. I also loved seeing how protective of Michelle, Liam and Aden they all were. I am secretly hoping that Jim gets his own book... that would just be AMAZING!! I think that he needs a HEA, don't you?! ;)

I definitely enjoyed (Mis)fortune more than I did Hope(less). You learn so much more in this book. Part of me thought that this should have been book 1 and Hope(less) should have been book 2. But the more I thought about it the more I can see why the author did it this way. While this book had more of the answers, book 1 wouldn't have had a strong plot line and the reader would have already figured out some of the answers to the questions that Gabby had throughout her entire book. 

And can I just ask... am I the only one that is having doubts about Elder Joshua?! Is he really who we think he is?! Is he friend?! Or is he foe?! Hmmmm... only time will tell!

Oh!! And I am extremely excited to start book 3!! Why?! Because it's Luke's book!! I read the author's note at the end of this book and did a little dance and gave a little squeal! I can't wait!!

And of course how could I forget my casting?! I really, REALLY love this one!! Eeeeek!!
