In Texture of Intimacy , SnowDancer healer Lara discovers the searing joys—and unexpected challenges—of being mated to quiet, powerful Walker, a man used to keeping his silence.
Texture of Intimacy (Wild Invitation) started off exactly where Kiss of Snow ended (don’t you just love when a series continues on this way?!). Now while I immensely enjoy Walker and Lara’s mating and simply them as character I found myself bored with their ‘in the life of…’ story. (Ugh now I feel bad).
I’ve always been curious about Walker, especially the ins and outs of his relationship with Judd. But even with that curiosity I still felt a disconnect with portions of his character and story with Lara. Lara on the other hand was always a character I loved see pop up on the pages of Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changelings series. Even with that being said I wasn’t so fascinated with her character that reading an entire story where she was the leading lady was going to do much for me. That sounds bad, and she really is a great character I just see her in a supporting role instead of being front and center, although I’m glad that Walker places her in the spotlight with his love, caring, and devotion.
The familial connections that were tied throughout Texture of Intimacy (Wild Invitation) seriously warmed my heart. It was good to see Sienna be able to finally come to grips with what happened in Kiss of Snow, Marlee and Toby gains some stability after a shift on their emotional foundation, as it was good to finally see Walker come out of that titanium coated shell he’d been hiding behind since he became the patriarch of the Lauren family at such a necessary time.
Besides the romance between Lara and Walker not doing much for me, not that they weren’t compatible because they most certainly were, I got a serious kick out of Texture of Intimacy (Wild Invitation). I seriously can’t wait to see exactly where this Psy-Changeling series could go next.
