ILVN 2024 Reading Challenge Update | What We Read in April

by | May 26, 2024 | 0 comments

The ILVN 2024 Reading Challenge has twelve prompts, and we’re completing one prompt a month, like we did last year. I’m excited to talk about what I read in April for this challenge.

And yes, I’m behind on my updates. So stay tuned for what I read in May soon.

Okay, for April, I read one of the three books we included in our FLINGS WITH FANGS box, Knight of Secrets by Leann Ryans for our FANGS prompt.

Although this is the second book in the series, it can be read as a standalone, which is how I read it. And it is one of my first (my second really) forays into the Omegaverse.

I have to say, the journey was fun.

So this book follows Charity, a curvy, naive omega human who comes from a wealthy family. At the start, we see she’s witnessed the trafficking of her kind—omegas, and her father is a part of it. Instead of being silenced and sold off to one of the men in charge, she runs away with the help of her lawyer. Now, she needs a place to stay.

Cue our knight, Danger, he’s an alpha who lives alone, and he’s a part of the Hell’s Knights, a motorcycle group that works hard to fight the Purists—a hate group that would love nothing better than to subjugate those different than them and blame it on the shifters. He’s asked to take Charity in and keep her safe.

There are lots of reasons why the two of them shouldn’t be near each other: her heat is coming, his father is a politician with connections to the Purists, and the two of them are immediately attracted to each other. Got to love the forced proximity trope in this one. It heats things up for sure.

I enjoyed the tension between Charity and Danger as we shift perspectives and they grow more comfortable with each other. These two really balance each other’s personalities well, and I enjoyed their character growth.

I do wish the ending was a little less rushed because some bigger story threads could have had more time spent on them to fully address the issues (like standing up for one’s mate and what happens with Charity’s parents). 

But overall, the book felt complete enough on its own, and I didn’t feel like I was missing anything important to understand the world given to us. Miss Ryans did a great job keeping me engaged until the end.

We had her live to answer some questions over on our Facebook group, so jump over there to see what she had to say about Knight of Secrets.
