I loved Ryanne in college arcane. She had more personality in that one book than Stacia managed in the entire previous series. She would have been a much better choice.
Literally Stacias only character traits before rouges were super hot,werewolf, bullied in school and in love with chris.
Emphasis on in love with Chris.
And when you make a characters romantic interest in one main character into the core of the character it gets awfully cringy when that character winds up with your secondary MC.
Cringy to the point where any book before college arcane is nearly unreadable because it’s shoved down your throat just how much Declan’s life mate is in love with this other guy. Ugh.
