I was super excited at the beginning of this book. Alexander was having lucid sexual dreams and it appeared to be the start of a great supernatural romance read. But I think I have a problem with novellas. I got to the end of the book and was surprised - a positive - but I wasn't just surprised about the length. Unfortunately with short novellas is often hard to include any kind of character development or depth to relationships. Yet with Mia's Return I felt the most unsatisfied with a novella since I read the Sole Regret series. Cooper-Posey wrote a great story with characters I would be happy to read more about, but therein lies my issue. There wasn't more to read and what was, seemed superficial. I felt like I had gotten a brief summary of events and missed out on the details of the story. Though Mia's and Alexander's relationship had back story, it was along the lines of "I've been attracted to him/her since forever" without any explanation of WHY. Mia's and Alexander's relationship with Wyatt 'develops' over a couple of hours and by develops, I mean they find him, connect, blame their attraction on magic and get to the nitty-gritty sexy time/bonding. We don't even get to witness the fight scene at the end! I did like the story line surrounding conflict with the Grimore's, saving the world against the evil vampeens and Cooper-Posey's sex scenes were hot as hell. This novella could definitely be extended into a full length novel which may give Cooper-Posey more space to fully develop this story. I'm going to give it an extra star because of the story's potential though I won't be looking for the rest of the series but maybe I'll give Tracy Cooper-Posey's longer novels a go.
