Another interesting point was the homely feeling of the plot; it was a strange melting pot, considering Vaughn and his cousin Maya, both trust fund boys, are living in Manhattan, but Jake Bander and his Ark of rescued animals are living in the wild. Again, I think it was intentional, to give the reader the feeling that even just outside your safety comfort zone, fantasy can happen. And the homely feeling is also in Jake himself, who isn’t really a paranormal hero, but more your next door neighbor, only with a “particularity”.
Yes, that is the word, I find Taming the Bander to be very particular, not yet again your paranormal romance; maybe I was a little gasping at the beginning, the reader is thrown in the middle of the story with very little background on the characters. It was like you were supposed to know them, and this was a sequel to another story, where maybe Jake and Vaughn weren’t the main characters but just supporting.
