WHY I READ IT
I have been in a shifter mood lately and I knew I could trust this author to do it right.
WHAT I RATED IT
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
Chloe MacArthur has finally found her mate but he’s the one wolf she can’t have.
To save her heart from further pain, she leaves the pack that she’s come to consider her family. Unfortunately, unfinished business leads her back to her childhood home and straight into a deadly game with shifters that will do anything to prevent her from learning the truth.
Ian Lachlan is in mourning. Nearly two years ago, he lost his mate but, thanks to Chloe, he’s finally living again. When he wanted to give up and die, she saved him.
Now, Chloe is the one who needs help and Lachlan plans to return the favor. Intent on protecting her from her enemies, he follows Chloe and soon discovers that he wants far more from her than friendship. He wants everything she has to give.
But can either of them let go of the past long enough to reach for their future?
One of the things I LOVE about shifter books is the woman are always so badass. They don’t let people push them around, are always proving they can hold their own, and really what is sexier than a confident woman? Chloe was exactly what I love in a female lead character. She had the sweet female characteristics that leads her to care so deeply for those she considers family but, at the same time she will gut someone for stepping out of line.
Lachlan was yummy. You get to see his softer side, then watch him grow into the assertive, take charge, demanding alpha he always really was. Life has dealt him a tricky hand and it takes all he’s got to play it right so he comes out on top.
This book was chalked full of action and suspense. You never really know who all the players are until the end. It kept me on my toes which is hard to do and left me guessing until the end. I really enjoy reading unrequited, it’s a favorite of mine to see them unintentionally mess up and then try to anticipate how they’ll make up for it once they realize the truth.
This was all around a great story and I look forward to seeing where this series goes.
