Review: Freeing Pain (Annex #1) by Lor Rose

Jude Kash’s life was filled with abused animals and too little sleep. His work at the We Are One Foundation brought him his new devil-dog Teddy Bear and his new obsession: an abused liger named Sampson.

Sampson suffered from poor living conditions and threats with a gun. Jude, or Kash to his friends, witnessed it first hand when he snuck onto Whitman’s, Sampson’s owner’s, property. When Kash and others from the We Are One Foundation finally make a plan to rescue poor Sampson things go terribly wrong.

When Kash finally regains consciousness he awoke to a very handsome and naked man taking care of him. Kash felt a connection with the man he couldn’t explain. The man introduced himself as Maj and explained everything except for one small detail of his life: he was Sampson, a liger shifter.

Kash took the news considerably well except for one problem,,, that detail wasn’t so small, in fact, it could cost Kash his life.

I really wanted to like this book - but it just did not work for me. I loved the blurb, but the execution was just meh, I guess that's why it's taken me so long to write the review; I hate writing negative reviews. In fact, I'm not really going to. Y'all know that reading is a personal thing blah, blah, blah? Well it is. I'm sure there are readers who will really enjoy this story, but I read it as wildly fantastical with insta-everything and that does not float my boat. Not even a little bit. I liked the potential but not the execution. The plot was thin and overly dramatic for my taste, I didn't connect with the characters, and I eye rolled my way through the read.

So the long and the short of it is; I didn't like it. Doesn't mean you won't, though.
