Review of Standard Deviation of Death (The Outlier Prophecies #4) by Tina Gower

Standard Deviation of Death

A Werewolf Turning Point


Genre: Paranormal Romance

Book Length (Est.): 256 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

As a fateless, Kate Hale shouldn’t receive any predictions. Let alone of her own death. The death notice may be fake, and a set up from the group determined to alter fate to their design, but the threat is real. Wyrd wants her eliminated.

Her romantic relationship with Accidental Death liaison, Ian Becker, presents a new challenge: how to calm a werewolf obsessed with keeping her safe.

When Michelle Kitman—math genius hero and the inspiration for Kate’s entire career—offers to work a case with her, Kate convinces Ian that it will benefit the investigation into her own death. But can he keep her safe if Michelle’s case thrusts Kate directly in Wyrd’s path?

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

At the end of book three Becker and Kate decided to try an actual relationship, not just the pack thing. The transition is a little awkward for them at times, and Becker – with all his protectiveness – will not make things any easier, but as always they’ll find a way to make things work.

“The door bangs open. Aaaannnndd cue a sweaty protective werewolf.”

This is book four in the Outlier Prophecies series and let me just kind of update you on what’s happening by answering the questions we all want to know (and no I won’t give away specific details, you’ll have to read to discover those)…

Is this the final book? No, it is not. Do they get a little bit closer to finding the bad guys behind everything? Yes, they do, but holy cow when Kate finds out who the leak is her world will come tumbling down. Does Becker have a sister? Those DNA results have not been disclosed as of yet. As a matter of fact, the topic is barely touched upon. Do Becker and Kate finally have sex? I’ve seriously been waiting for this to happen for the last three books. I mean the sexual tension between them has been insane and let me tell you that if you’re waiting for some amazing thing to happen, like I was, you’ll be disappointed. **P.S. After writing my review I was informed there is a deleted scene available. So if you like fade to black then good, but if you want the steamy details check the back of the book or ask the author for it!**

There is a cliffhanger ending, more so than the previous books. There will be an altered prediction that will affect everything and goodness gracious I cannot wait for the next book to see what happens.

My Favorite Moment: Now that they’re dating Kate wants to call Becker by his first name, Ian, but every time she does he reacts a little weirded out by it.

“I’m, uh, fine with Becker?”

“Professionally or personally?”


I cross my arms, press back into my seat. If I wanted confirmation that he’s pulling away I just got it. “So you’re fine with me screaming out ‘Becker, oh gods, Becker’ in bed?”

“I’m – wait, what?”
