Consumed with a need for revenge, Cole Jackson becomes blind to all he should hold dear. It’s not until vengeance has been carried out that he realizes what he’s almost lost.
After being brutally attacked, Leeza Snow, has kept her head up with her pride intact. What everyone doesn’t see is the shattered heart she conceals, not only from her pack but from the man she’s destined to be with.
While time can heal scars, it will take trust to offer a promise of a happy future.
I received this book from the authors for an honest review.
This book picks up right after the end of Sanctuary, Book 1. The guys have gone after and killed Foster. Leeza is a broken woman. She is sad the pack is upset at her for not protecting a younger female of the family but wishes things were different. When Gemma mentions her rape, Leeza goes ape shit. Nope sorry people she was not raped, and this untrue fact is why she gets the sad eyes from her pack members.
Leeza is a feisty woman. When she confronts the brothers, it was my favorite scene. She makes sure to set them straight on what they as her pack elders have done wrong and how they have let her down plus the memory of her brother, the old pack alpha, down.
Cole feels like a class A Jerk for not listening to Leeza, his mate. He feels like an idiot for only thinking of his pain at not protecting her and not her pain at being attacked.
The two have some issues to overcome like his over the top alpha behavior at bossing her around. Leeza is a strong, independent female who wants a partner not a dictator to love. Cole needs to learn that females have wants and desires besides being cared for on a pedestal. She wants to be involved in the pack plus earn her way.
I liked the story. There wasn’t much conflict in this story, but it is set up for the drama to come in the next book. Looks like Foster’s issues may not be out of the pack’s picture juuuuuuust yet.
