Review of Seven Years (Seven #1) by Dannika Dark

Seven years ago, my world ended.
Seven years later, my new life began.

It's been seven years since Lexi Knight lost her brother in a tragic accident. On the anniversary of his death, her brother's best friend shows up unexpectedly - a man she hasn't seen since the funeral. He is no longer the boy Lexi once knew, but a dangerous-looking man with tattoos and dark secrets. He broke her trust and abandoned her family, yet what he reveals makes it impossible to stay angry. Lexi has been secretly infatuated with Austin since childhood, so finding out he's a Shifter just makes him sexier. Dammit.

Austin Cole has returned to the city where he grew up, and just in time. He's lived a hard life these past seven years, and the shadows of his past are threatening to destroy Lexi's family. It's time that she learned the truth about her brother, but there is a shocking twist that Austin never saw coming. Now he must protect her family when her mother and sister wind up in mortal danger. Will Lexi learn to accept the truth about who he is, and can Austin salvage a relationship from the ruins of their past?

Destiny will find you.

What if Shifters really did exist, and lived in secret? 

Overall Rating:  4.25 Rockin’ ★★★★

While sugarplums danced in their heads…or was that while shifters, shifted in their heads? In this remarkable paranormal romance by the talented Dannika Dark, we meet two extraordinary characters, Lexi Knight and Austin Cole.  Seven Years is the first book in the Seven Series and creates a world of shifters that is nothing like anything I have read before!  It is filled with love, loyalty, warmth of family and of course the unknown! You will find yourself asking what will happen next.

Life sometimes can be full of tough choices. Like, am I going to sell candy for the rest of my life?   Like, can I forgive and forget that my best friend left when my family and I needed him the most? Now that he has decided to come back home after seven years, will I still feel the same about him?  Will I be able to put behind the crush I had on him?  Is that all my future holds? When Austin walks back into Lexi’s life, secrets are revealed that may destroy not only her but him as well.

Things are the same but different when Cole returns home.  His feelings for Lexi are still in turmoil, they have not changed.  But he is a shifter and it is forbidden for his world to mix with hers.  Not only that, but when he left he thought that she would be protected.  Her family would be safe and taken care of; only that is not what he finds out happened.  Can they find away?  He is the Alpha of his pack and must follow the rules.  

Threats from the past resurface and threaten not only Lexi but her family as well. Cole has put them under his protection, but who will protect him?  This is one shifter tale that you will not want to miss!  I cannot wait to read the next book in this series.
