The romance grew organically and I really liked it

Forgotten Enemy by C.B. Haight is the first book in a series called The Powers of Influence. Cade is a werewolf and part of an organization entirely focused on protecting people from paranormal threats. When Roderick, one of his close friends and ally, asks that Cade look into one of Roderick’s employees, Cade is enthralled by his charge for protection. Collett is a seemingly skittish woman who doesn’t remember any of her past and is on the run for her life.  Creatures of evil regularly track her down and attempt to kill her and Collett doesn’t even know why. Cade, Roderick and his family work together to both keep Collett safe, but also figure out who she is. Collett is also slowly discovering powers that have been lying hidden and, on top of everything else, she must figure out how to manage these powers and determine what they might mean.  Together, they all must figure out who is hunting Collett and why. As the clues begin to fall into place, Cade and Collett also work to cope with their quickly changing relationship.

I really enjoyed this story. It was a little slow in terms of the action, but this allows the reader to savor the characters and the growing relationships. The romance grew organically and I really liked that. There were a lot of characters, but they all added something to the story in terms of actions or just information about the relationship between all the characters. I also liked that in addition to Cade and Collett’s point of views, the reader gets the point of view of the predator. It helps build up to the revelation near the end of the story, which I really liked. However, I really disliked how the story ends. Because the plot moves a little slowly and there are going to be more books in the series, the main mystery of the story was never resolved. Some information was revealed to at least keep the story going, but I really wish there was more. It almost felt as if the characters were really in the same place that they were at the beginning of the story.  This is frustrating because the slow pace and development of relationships can really cause the reader to become attached to the characters and how their lives progress.

The narration by Mikeal Narramore was pretty good. I did sometimes have a difficult time keeping track of who was speaking because some of the characters sounded similar, but over all he did a good job. The production quality was good as well. I would recommend this novel to anyone who likes a good long lasting mystery and paranormal romances.

What made the experience of listening to Forgotten Enemy the most enjoyable?

This is my first book by CB Haight, and it was a good one.

I really enjoyed the book, and would totally recommend it to anyone who likes a unique shifter experience. I know I for one, love shifters, always have as they hold a special place for me, and this one has one heck of a alpha wolf in it. I will say though that the POVs switch often and a few times I got confused as to who was talking, and a few times the story seemed to drag, like it was stuck then it would pick up speed again, which happens sometimes.

Cade, is one very old, badarsed mamajama with a true heart of gold. Year after year he grows with a family, a family that's been behind him for decades, centuries even, and he becomes even more special to them all but he's missing something from his very long life. He's lonely, and that's not something just anyone can dice. It's going to take a special person.

Collette is a woman hiding in plain sight. She has no memories of the past, but she knows she needs to run. She can feel when bad things are about to happen to her, so she runs.

What neither of them suspects is that when she runs, axe will follow. One night will change their destinies and the course they're meant to take in life forever. Cade's instincts to protect Collette and Collette's need to keep everyone else from being hurt by her demons sets them both in a fiery path they could only have one outcome.

Come hell or high water, they're going to meet on common ground and stand tall. Thing is, are they strong enough to stand alone, or will they stand together....
