I’ve been feeling the urge to read Of Triton, the second book in Anna Banks’ Syrena Legacy, when I realized I hadn’t yet read Hard To Get. Hard to Get is one of the several short stories Anna Banks has written as companion pieces to her Syrena novels. I’ve read Legacy Lost, which is tragic and the reason I started with the series. Hard To Get tells the story of what happened between Toraf and Rayna, after Toraf used a kiss with the series’ protagonist, Emma, to make Rayna jealous.
When I read Of Poseidon back in September, I was not sold on this storyline. Though I liked Toraf, I could not reconcile what he did. He was forcing Rayna to be with him. Then he hurt her for rejecting him. The two sides of him weren’t sitting well with me. Reading this story makes me understand his actions, though they were impulsive. It also makes me like Grom a little less, even though I was sympathetic with him previously. Maybe he is actually an ass and it makes perfect sense why his mate did what she did. I’m sure to read about it soon in Of Triton. Hard To Get was a quick, fun story, with insight into some of the Syrena characters.
