#REVIEW – Lone Wolf: (Olento Research #2) by Sarah Noffke

Lone Wolf: A Paranormal Science Fiction Thriller (Olento Research Book 2)

 

When one man can’t reconcile with the wolf inside of him, he knows all he can do is run. Take thewolf with him and run away from those he doesn’t want to hurt. But will that be his greatest mistake?

The pack is coming together, but one wolf would rather be alone with his demons than united as a team. In the second installment in the Olento Research series, Connor runs from the Lucidite Institute and his pack, fearful of what the wolf will make him do. All of the men describe feeling the impulses, thedesires that are unquenchable, coursing through them. But Connor knows he has a lesser chance of resisting those impulses due to his background. And after what he almost did to Adelaide, he can’t risks it happening again.

However, Mika hasn’t given up and he’s more driven to retrieve the werewolves he knows belong to him. He plants a mole in the Institute and thengoes to work creating a werewolf meant to catch other werewolves. One that is stronger, faster and bigger than those in the original pack.

Meanwhile Zephyr is quickly following leads and tracking down members of the pack, but will he be one step behind Olento Research? Can he rescue his team and stop Olento Research before they capture their would-be assassins?

Lone Wolf is darker and more grueling than its predecessor. However, it’s also a story about characters who are so beautiful with all their many flaws. It’s a story about how the very best intentions can still lead to the worst scenarios. When one intends not to hurt another, they may find that’s exactly what they’ve done.

 

Goodreads

 

A must read! This series gets better and better with every word read, every page written, and every emotion that the author provokes. “Loners take the risks that leaders can never afford.” *sigh* So true! I am a sucker for shifters but most stories are similar in nature. NOT THIS ONE! It is very unique and completely sucks you in to this incredible world of Dream Travelers and Werewolves. And lets not stop here…the Dream Travelers have special abilities (kinda like superpowers!). There is plenty of snark and sarcasm (and I require a lot!) all mixed in with real life emotions of these werewolves that will….that just….that give you ALL THE FEELS! Action, adventure, feels….what more could you ask for? These werewolves were abducted and experimented on. The werewolves escaped in the firsts book and are now trying to come to terms with what they are and what happened to them in this book. The pack is split up. Many of them still don’t know what happened to them or the fact that these abilities they acquired have made them a hybrid of human, dream traveler, and werewolf. It’s a combination that let’s you, as the reader, know that anything is possible and anything can happen. This series and the author are truly amazing. This is one heck of an adventure that you don’t want to miss as they try and get the pack back together while being picked off by another experiment. It’s wild! Check this out, you won’t be sorry.

#Review – Saint (A Wolf’s Hunger #6) (Standalone) by Bella Roccaforte

35212640

 

Saint has always been the good wolf, until the hunger strikes.

To be the Pack Alpha is the greatest honor a wolf can receive, but also the greatest responsibility. Saint always put the law and the pack before himself, but when a mysterious woman arrives in town and his hunger becomes insatiable, all hell breaks loose.

Scarlet never fit in anywhere. Born without her wolf, she was sent away at birth for being a bad omen. Her bright red eyes were a dead giveaway that she wasn’t human either. After twenty-five years living as an outsider, her mother brings her home; there’s still no place for Scarlet among the pack, and she tries to go on the run…again.

Though an inexplicable force keeps Scarlet from leaving, is it her wolf? Or the handsome young Alpha she meets on the road?

Saint has found his mate, but will Scarlet find her wolf in time to save Saint from losing himself to his wolf forever?

Book 1 in New York Times Bestselling Author, A K Michaels’ new Shifter series full of passion, intrigue and Paranormal Romance. All are standalones with a HEA and no cliffhangers. Jam packed full of suspense, romance, thrills and hot Shifters.

 

Goodreads

 

Oh, the feels! A big bad Alpha with a strong female….SWOON! Saint is next in line to be Alpha. All of a sudden he feels something brewing in him. His wolf is a little out of control and is never satisfied. One night while in wolf form he comes across Scarlet. Scarlet is from this pack but was taken away as a baby because she was born without her wolf. Being born without your wolf is a bad omen for packs, or so they say. There is an intense attraction between these two with a romance that blossoms quickly but so pure. As they are trying to find her wolf, things get crazy. Rogue wolves and wicked witches. What more could you ask for? This story has it all. I fell in love with Saint and Scarlet as well as the side characters. The book is a standalone but has so much potential for more. I hope these other characters get to come out and play!

#NewRelease #Review #Shifter Tempted by the Wolf (Fated Mates 6) by Alicia Montgomery

***In the exciting conclusion to the True Mates Series, Lone Wolf Meredith and powerful warlock Daric fight their growing attraction for one another. ***

Lone Wolf shifter Meredith is trying to make the next ten years of her life pass by quickly. After being caught trying to steal from the New York clan, she’s sentenced to servitude to them for the next decade to make up for her crimes. But, when she gets assigned to guard their prisoner, the handsome but dangerous warlock, Daric, things suddenly become complicated. She knows he’s their enemy, and possibly evil, but she’s having a hard time controlling her attraction to him.

Now that he’s is finally free from the evil mage Stefan, Daric has one single goal: the destruction of his former master. He’ll do anything to kill the mage who ruined his life, even if it means working with the New York clan and their alpha. However, his desire for his beautiful Lycan bodyguard is a distraction, one he can’t afford. The she-wolf is proving to be too alluring, and he’s craving for a taste.

When Meredith’s past comes back to haunt her and she’s left hurting, Daric can’t help but offer his comfort and assistance, especially when all roads lead back to the mages. Will he lose his head and his heart to Meredith, or will she prove to be the one weakness that could destroy him?

Tempted by the Wolf is a full-length (75,000++ words) werewolf paranormal romance with explicit love scenes, naughty language, and shifter suspense action with guaranteed HEA and no cliffhangers!

Although it works as a standalone romance story, this book takes place in the True Mates series. Though not necessary, I recommend you read the rest of the books to understand the world and the main plot.

True Mates Series Reading Order:

Fated Mates (Book 1)
Blood Moon (Book 2)
Romancing the Alpha (Book 3)
Witch’s Mate (Book 4)
Taming the Beast (Book 5)
Tempted by the Wolf (Book 6)

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

I hate to see a great series come to a end and unfortunately this is it for the Fated Mates series. If anyone could end this series with a bang it would be Meredith. When we first met her she was breaking into the Fenrir corporation and Grant, as the New York alpha, had sentenced her to 10 years under his command instead of sending her to the lycan prison. As a lone wolf she was not happy to be stuck in one place for so long, but she would take it over prison.
She became besties with Jade, the super smart lycan scientist who found her fated mate in Taming the Beast, and Lara, a super powerful witch who found her mate in Witch’s Mate, both employed at Fenrir. She is a total smart a**, has no filter on what comes out of her mouth, and I love her!! I want to be besties with her!!!
Daric is a warlock who is working with the evil mage Stefan. He was in on the kidnaping of Cady Vfrost. He was captured and held prisoner at Fenrir, but has proven he isn’t that he isn’t really with Stefan by trying to kill him. He really had no choice but to follow him as he was holding his mother prisoner to get Daric to do his bidding.
I forgot to mention he a chocolate smelling, man bun wearing, hunk of a man too!!!
Meredith and her mouth have been assigned to be Daric’s guard while he works the group to bring down Stefan and his mages once and for all. Revenge is all that he has on his mind, revenge for what Stefan has done to his family, for the years that he has used Daric’s mother to insure his cooperation. However, there is something about the foul mouth lycan female that keeps pulling him to her and takes his mind somewhat away from that.
We are introduced to Meredith’s lone wolf brothers when they come to tell her that their adopted father is dead. Brother’s that are drop dead yummy!!!
What happens next is total craziness!! A traitor within the council, more kidnappings, hilarious bff conversations, unicorn underwear, Disney princesses!!! All the craziness is worth the beautiful ending though.
Oh, and just as I was thinking I will miss these characters and wish that we learned more about Mer’s brothers, there was a lovely surprise that I don’t want to spoil, but it’s AWESOME!!!!!
Thank you Alicia Montgomery for writing a great group of shifters!!!

#Review #NewRelease- Alpha Wolf (Olento Research Series #1) by: Sarah Noffke

34499615

Olento Research wants to control the world. The Lucidite Institute wants to save it.

Twelve men went missing.

Six months later they awake from drug-induced stupors to find themselves locked in a lab.

And on the night of a new moon, eleven of those men, possessed by new–and inhuman–powers, break out of their prison and race through the streets of Los Angeles until they disappear one by one into the night.

Olento Research wants its experiments back. Its CEO, Mika Lenna, will tear every city apart until he has his werewolves imprisoned once again. He didn’t undertake a huge risk just to lose his would-be assassins.

However, the Lucidite Institute’s main mission is to save the world from injustices. Now, it’s Adelaide’s job to find these mutated men and protect them and society, and fast. Already around the nation, wolflike men are being spotted. Attacks on innocent women are happening. And then, Adelaide realizes what her next step must be: She has to find the alpha wolf first. Only once she’s located him can she stop whoever is behind this experiment to create wild beasts out of human beings.

Goodreads

Ok, where do I even start? Should I mention that you don’t even need to read my review (you can if you want of course, lol) but you should stop and read Alpha Wolf, like, now! If this is your first Sarah Noffke book or you are an avid reader of hers, you won’t be disappointed….at all! The characters are well developed and fun to follow. The world building is intense enough to put you right in the middle of the story. This is the start of a new series but if you have read Sarah’s other books you will see other characters pop up. This is sooooo exciting!

Olento research has figured out how to make werewolves after kidnapping 12 unsuspecting men. They are able to escape and this is where the Lucidites come in to play. Olento Research’s goal is to make these men into assassins and the Lucidites are trying to save them along with all of humanity. Sarah Noffke writes a great bad guy (oxymoron?) and you will quickly learn to love to hate him. Adelaide is the agent that has been assigned this case by the Lucidites to try and solve. This is where we have a little fun. Adelaide is the daughter of the greatest, er, um, worst, British bloke the Lucidites have ever employed. (if you don’t know who Ren is, you should try her other series) She is definitely her father’s daughter. She has been given a partner who she thoroughly loathes. Seeing these two banter back and forth keeps things light with all the heavy that is going on. As they start to unravel the web that Mika Lenna has weaved with his werewolf research the Lucidites begin to find some truths. But we all know with the truth there come more questions.

As the plot thickens there are more twists and turns and rollercoaster rides full of wonder. There are more characters that are introduced and they all play an integral part in the plot. This is a great twist on the werewolf society we have all come to know with some dream travelers as well. Truly an amazing start to a spin off series. Reader beware…there is a cliffhanger. Sarah Noffke knows how to write those as well! Bring on the sequel!

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

This is the first book in a new series. If you have ever read one of Sarah’s books you know she likes to pull characters from other series.  This is no different.  You will see some from Lucidites and Ren’s series.  I love getting to see past characters.  But don’t worry if you have not read any of Sarah’s series before you will be able to jump in.

What would you do if you were a perfectly normal person who woke up one day and found you were taken, held up in a cell, and would turn in to an awful monster every 7 days? Well that is where 12 unsuspecting men ended up.  After escaping a few learned that they were not only Werewolves but also Dream Travelers and found out about the Lucidite Institute.

You see Olento Research is on a mission to create the most powerful fighting machine and now that their experiments escaped they are on a mission to recover them all. However, some are in the custody of the Lucidites and it is Adelaide’s job to find all 12 men and protect them from being recaptured by Olento Research.

Let me talk about some of the characters in this book first and foremost there is Adelaide she is her father’s daughter no doubt (if you have not read REN series please do so). I love her just as much as I did her father. She will say what she wants when she wants and will not hold back.  Oh and don’t ever think she will remember or call you by your real name she was constantly getting names wrong (no matter if on purpose or not). There is Rox the FBI agent assigned as Adelaide’s partner and yes this goes over just peachy keen with Adelaide….NOT!! Rox is a flirtatious spitfire and keeps Adelaide on her toes or at least makes her come up with great sayings.  We are also introduced to a few of the wolfs, Zephyr, Connor, and Kaleb.  Zephyr is the alpha wolf and the one Adalaide and Rox set out to find first. Connor was the one left behind and was a drug addict which probably worked out in his and the Lucidites favor. Then there was Kaleb the runt of the pack.  This brings me to the villain of the story and wow Sarah has a way of making them worse with each story.

I was so wrapped up in this story I did not want it to end I needed to know more and what happened to the other 9 men. Sarah has a way of keeping me guessing with each twist of the story just when I thought I knew what’s going to happen it would go in a different direction and I was like no WAY! We are in for one crazy adventure and I am ready.

#WOTR #Review # Shifter Forbidden Desire (Lee County Wolves 3) by Teresa Gabelman

Forbidden Desire (Lee County Wolves) Book #3

From the moment Marcus Foster saw Roxy Patel, he knew she was his mate. Remaining patient because of her troubled past, he was determined to build her trust. She was his and nothing would change that, not even time.

Leaving her past behind, Roxy refused to remain a broken shell of a woman. Determined to start afresh, moving to a new town was just what she needed. With the help of her new friends, and a wolf shifter wanting to make her his own, all Roxy needed was the chance to thrive again.

Amazon

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

Yay!!! Marcus, the middle of the hot Foster Brothers, finally gets his book!!!
I have been waiting for Marcus to get his story since Garrett’s book, there was something about him that caught my attention.
Roxy Patel is a human that has been under the Alpha’s protection since he brought her home after getting her away from her abusive husband. For two years Roxy has not left town, ordering everything she needs online, for fear of her husband finding her. Being still legally married to that evil man kills her and keeps her from the man that truly attracts her.
Marcus knew as soon as he saw Roxy that she belonged to him, she was his heart, his mate. Knowing that she too scared to leave town and still married to that a**wipe, well let’s just say it’s taking everything he has to not taking it into his own hands.
Roxy, is a woman that is coming into her own and she is a firecracker!! I love how she handles the jealous be-atches when they spew nastiness because a Foster chose someone other than them.
I love how Marcus loves Roxy not only for the woman she is outwardly, but also for the woman he know she is on the inside too. To me that is even more attractive on a man than good looks, though that helps too!!
The way he listens to the things that she likes and wants even before they are together is swoon worthy.
Roxy’s BFF Clare is a hoot, looking up divorce laws on google, helping her pick the perfect going out outfit, and helping her kick butt. I hope we see more of her. It’s great when you find a friend that will have your back like that.
There is new wolves, weird pregnancy craving that make me crack up, danger when the past comes a calling, and lets not forget be-atches and abusive husbands.
Omg!!!! I almost forgot we also get a small glimpse of my favorite Protector Dr. Hottie McVampire or wise known as Slade.
I can’t wait to see where we go next with the Lee County Pack!!!

The Protectors: Sloan by WOTR Attending Author Teresa Gabelman

Not only does VC leader, Sloan Murphy, have to keep the peace between the human and vampire race, but he also wrangles VC Warriors in his spare time. It’s a job that could drive a saint insane, and Sloan is no saint, but insane he may be. While his Warriors find mates, he swears he will not follow in their footsteps.

Becky Spencer, his new secretary who he reluctantly employs, is set to threaten every stoic promise he’s made. With an instant attraction that is hard to deny, she fits into his world with confident ease.

Even though Becky has sworn off men after her nasty divorce, she can’t help the desire the sexy and serious Sloan Murphy stirs in her. It isn’t until she sees how devoted he is to his job and the Warriors under his command, that her lusty feelings turn into more. Working in close quarters, they both fight the pull that grows with each passing minute.

Who will win, the secretary, the Warrior, or an attraction that just won’t go away?

Ink Exposed (Montgomery Ink 6) by Carrie Ann Ryan

The Montgomery Ink series continues with the brother that deserves a second chance, and the woman who has always loved him.

Alex Montgomery lost his first love and then proceeded to leave himself in the bottle. Only he and his ex-wife truly know why he fell so hard and so fast down a path he never thought he’d take. Now he’s clean, out of rehab, and learning how to be a Montgomery once again—a task that isn’t quite as easy as some of his family assumes.

Tabby Collins is an honorary Montgomery and the organizational mastermind behind Montgomery Inc., the family’s construction company. She loves her planners, friends, and a certain dark-haired man who’s never given her a second glance.

Alex is slowly re-immersing himself back into the world, but the demons he faced before aren’t out of the picture, and he’ll have to learn to rely on others to make it out whole. When Alex discovers that Tabby’s life is in danger, he not only finds a way to help her but also learns the true woman behind the soft smiles he’s always seen. Their romance won’t be an easy one, but nothing this passionate and heart-pounding ever is.

Fascinated by her assertive alpha personality, coupled with her desire to submit and serve, Pamela intrigues him.

As Pamela shines light once more into the dark corners of his life, Kristoffer finds himself struggling between remaining in his safe and lonely world or emotionally opening himself up to a vibrant woman, who asks for nothing more than he’s able to give. Guiding her in mind-training exercises to prepare her for some future Dom, Kristoffer finds his body awakening as well. Will Kristoffer be able to close the door to his past and open his heart to the ginger-haired sprite who makes him question everything he once believed?

ROAR is a standalone novel that has some familiar secondary characters from Rescue Me Saga, but the main characters are new. You don’t have to read the series to fully enjoy this book.

Year of the Scorpio: Part One by Stacy Gail

***TRIGGER WARNING: This is a DARK mafia romance. In addition to several scenes with strong sexual content, there are also scenes involving violence, death, gun play, mention of sexual abuse, and adult language. Due to the nature of this book, it is intended for 18+ audiences only***
They call me Dash.

Sixteen years ago my brother and I were kidnapped. The Scorpeones believed our father, boss of the Vitaliev Bratva, could be pressured into relinquishing his hold on Chicago’s underworld.

They were dead wrong.

Ultimately the Scorpeones made the youngest of their family pay for their sins. I tried not to care. Marco Polo Scorpeone, the hostage whose life was forfeit if his family moved on the Vitalievs, was the enemy. Why should I care if he was tortured worse than a prisoner of war?

Except I did care.

For sixteen years I’ve cared, more than I can say.
They call me Scorpio.

There was no light in my world. Then I saw Dash smile.

No voice could pierce my darkness. Then I heard Dash speak.

I’ve killed to survive. Killed to please my handler. Hell, I’ve killed to please myself. Killing is what I do.

I know I’m not good enough for Dash, but it doesn’t matter. What matters is that she’s mine, from now until the end of time. But that time might be nearer than I think, because someone deadlier than me is closing in…

Author’s Note: This is the first half of a two-part story arc. YEAR OF THE SCORPIO: PART ONE ends on a cliffhanger, which will be concluded in YEAR OF THE SCORPIO: PART TWO. You have been warned.

Love Restored: A Gallagher Brothers Novel by Carrie Ann Ryan

In the first of a Montgomery Ink spin-off series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan, a broken man uncovers the truth of what it means to take a second chance with the most unexpected woman…

Graham Gallagher has seen it all. And when tragedy struck, lost it all. He’s been the backbone of his brothers, the one they all rely on in their lives and business. And when it comes to falling in love and creating a life, he knows what it’s like to have it all and watch it crumble. He’s done with looking for another person to warm his bed, but apparently he didn’t learn his lesson because the new piercer at Montgomery Ink tempts him like no other.

Blake Brennen may have been born a trust fund baby, but she’s created a whole new life for herself in the world of ink, piercings, and freedom. Only the ties she’d thought she’d cut long ago aren’t as severed as she’d believed. When she finds Graham constantly in her path, she knows from first glance that he’s the wrong kind of guy for her. Except that Blake excels at making the wrong choice and Graham might be the ultimate temptation for the bad girl she’d thought long buried.

#Review #Shifter #Alpha Romancing The Alpha (True Mates 3) by Alicia Montgomery

***Can be read as a standalone billionaire werewolf shifter paranormal book**
In the next installment of the True Mates series, New York Alpha Grant Anderson meets his match in feisty New Jersey Alpha, Francesca “Frankie” Muccino.

New Jersey Alpha Francesca “Frankie” Muccino never had it easy. Alpha of her ragtag clan, head of her family, and manager of their ailing restaurant business, she’s got a lot on her plate. When a handsome, sexy, and very naked Lycan shows up on her doorstep, sparks immediately fly, but it’s one more complication she can’t handle.

Escaping from a kidnapping attempt by his enemies, New York Alpha Grant Anderson finds himself in New Jersey territory. He’s immediately drawn to the plucky and spirited Frankie, and has no qualms about going for what he wants – her, in his bed. The Jersey Alpha won’t be an easy catch, but Grant is determined to tame the wild she-wolf.

Danger brings them together as the evil mages come back for their revenge, determined more than ever to take Lycans down. Thirsty for retribution, they have taken in a new ally, one that’s closer to the New York clan and could finally bring them the victory they want. Frankie is caught in the middle of the war between the New York Clan and the mages and Grant will do anything to protect her. Can he keep her safe and win her over, or will the mages and their mysterious ally tear them apart?

Romancing the Alpha is a full-length (over 70,000 words) billionaire werewolf steamy paranormal romance with explicit love scenes, naughty language, and shifter suspense action with guaranteed HEA and no cliffhangers!

Although it works as a standalone romance story, this book takes place in the True Mates series world. To understand the elements, I recommend you read “Fated Mates” and “Blood Moon” before this book.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

Grant Anderson is the alpha billionaire of New York. He is trying to keep the lycan safe safe from the mages.
Francesca Muccino, to her family and friends, is one of the only female alphas to led a pack. She is New Jersey’s alpha, that is the New York packs neighbor, and she meets Grant by running into him literally like with her car, after he’s been drugged and kidnaped.
Though this is Grant and Frankie’s first meeting, it’s not the first time we are meeting her, we met her in book one when she saved Alynna from a group of catty women at her coming out ball.
Not only is Frankie the alpha for New Jersey, she along with her brothers, runs a Italian Restaurant that has been in her family for generations.
Even though they’ve never met Grant caught her scent the night of the ball and hasn’t stop thinking about the mysterious woman with the yummy smell.
In this story we not only have the mages trying to kill off the alpha, we also have a group of lycan working with them to try and take over New York. Oh, and we have a delusional female that thinks Grant is in love with her.
Frankie has major high walls around her heart where men are concerned and I have to say if I was in her place I’d say forget men and switch sides!! Lol, but seriously it takes hard work on Grant’s part to get her to see that he has real feelings for her.
Babies being born, surprise trips to Italy, hot alpha sex, kidnappings, killer mages, this book has it all and I can’t wait for the next one!!

#Review #Shifter Blood Moon (True Mates 2) by Alicia Montgomery

In this exciting continuation to the True Mates Series, Human Liaison Cady Gray and Second-in-Command Nick Vrost are drawn together after a night of passion.

Despite growing up in the world of the New York Lycan clan, Cady Gray still feels like an outsider looking in. She’s built walls around her, to protect herself and the clan, harboring a deep secret from her past that threatens her future. The clan’s sexy Beta shifter has always intrigued her, but he’s kept his distance, that is, until one innocent dance.

Nick Vrost has wanted Cady for years, but kept his own desires at bay for the sake of the clan and his family. As second-in-command of the New York clan and heir to the Vrost fortune, it was his duty to marry a suitable high-ranking Lycan female and produce a child to carry on the line. After ignoring Cady for years, one touch ignites something he can no longer control and he may have to choose between family obligation and his long-simmering desire for the quiet beauty.

When a near-catastrophic event forces them to confront their attraction, they find that one night simply isn’t enough. However, the New York clan is facing its biggest challenge yet and incidents attacking Lycans in the city are increasing. Cady’s life is put in danger, but evidence begins to link her to the attacks. But, who is behind all these threats and will the Lycans survive?

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

Omg!! So book 2 picks up where book one ends, Alynna and Alex’s wedding.
Cady Gray is the Alpha’s Human Liaison, sort of like his executive assistant. They’ve known each other since they were kids because her father held that position for his father.
Nick Vrost is the beta of New York and head of security. These two have danced around each other for years. Nick has kept his distance because the alpha thinks of her as a sister and Cady because she didn’t think that Nick was interested.
One thing I found out in this book; True Mates are not only a rare thing but apparently a very magical thing that all magic beings feel.
Anyone can be a True Mate to a lycan, it doesn’t have to be two lycan.
So many things happen in this book. Witches are introduced further, we find out who was behind the attempts on Alynna life, we met Nick’s grandfather who gives him a ultimatum to find a wife and have children or he is going to be out of the will.
Oh, and Cady and Nick start dream walking!!
I think the struggle that Nick has to go through, of whether he follows his heart or listens to his grandfather is a tough one. I am so glad that I would never have to go through that.
Cady mother returns and it isn’t a happy return as she is a witch and witches and lycan do not get along. She also has given a ultimatum, that Cady will leave the employ of them or it will be forced. Her mom, is not a good woman, in fact why don’t we just call her a power hungry b***h. She works with a evil blood mage who is out to get the True Mates, because he hates lycan and because of the magic that makes a True Mated pair.
I love Cady and Nick when they are together, they’re so sweet. The chemistry between them is off the charts too!! There is a scene in the hotel during the blood moon wowza, that was a hot one!!!
I will say In the end Cady is a better woman that me because I would have made Nick grovel for at least a week.
Wanna know why he need to grovel??? Well I’m not telling, ya gotta read the book.
The next book is Grant, the New York alpha. Will he find is True Mate? Will he put a end to the evil Mage after the True Mated pairs? I can’t wait to find out!!

synopsis

Back in his town, he is faced with rogue packs challenging their alpha, his brother, as well as the woman he has spent years avoiding. Finally, he has to come to terms with what his wolf has been telling him and what he as a man has been fighting against

kristis review

What can I say about the craziness that is Hunter? He’s a wolf that makes you want to smack him and melts your panties at the same time!!
We came to know Hunter in Forbidden Hunger, but came to love when he protected Jill in A Warrior Wedding, now he’s back home to face the consequences of his actions of showing the world shifters are real.
Wow, I can’t get over how much Hunter grew from Garrett’s book being with the Warriors was soo good for him. Then again being with them would be good for anybody!!!
Emily is human living under the protection of the Lee County Pack and has been since she was a kid and she’s been in love with Hunter since he and his brothers came to town.
Love Emily, she’s such a firecracker!! She has taken shit for years and isn’t about to anymore and lets everyone, including Hunter, know it.
The interaction between those two breaks my heart and makes me happy at the same time! Finding out about Hunter’s childhood makes things understandable but it still hard, and seeing the way he is willing to do anything to make up the way he treated Emily as a teenager shows just how much he has grown.
When a group comes to town to try and take over all kinds of shit goes down and the Lee county pack kicks ass!!
I can’t wait for Marcus’s book and I hope his mate is who I think it is!!
OMG!!!! I forgot one of the best things of the book!!!!! Our resident VC Warrior comedian Steve is sent to help the pack with the Shifters and what the outing of them means with the government. Steve finding a girl he “likes” in town and the way it is dealt with is hilarious!!!
Oh! Oh! Oh!! And my hubby and sister wife Slade and Jill come to town too!!!
