WHY I READ IT
It’s like Suzanne Wright dove into my brain and discovered exactly how I like a story told and then just started writing. I haven’t read a book by her that I didn’t love.
WHAT I RATED IT
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
Gwen Miller may be a human, but she has no problem taking a stand against her own kind. She’s going to testify against the teenage boy she saw viciously assault a lone shifter female—and no amount of pressure from the boy’s wealthy family will make her back down. But when the harassment turns violent, help comes in the form of a lean, toned wolf with winter-gray eyes.
As a guest at Gwen’s inn, shifter enforcer Zander Devlin can’t help but notice that the fierce and leggy brunette is in serious trouble. Since she’s putting herself at risk for one of his kind, keeping her safe is the least he can do. That’s not the only reason Zander wants her close. He desires her, even as the wolf inside him backs away from her. But his feral instincts are hard to keep down, and as they take shape, they’re harder for Gwen to resist. Then again, embracing them could be the only thing that could save her life.
I’m a little embarrassed to say I wasn’t sure Suzanne was going to pull this one off. I wasn’t convinced that a human woman and a wolf shifter, much less one as controlled as Zander, could work as mates. Man on man did she prove me wrong!
Gwen is amazing, no beyond amazing, she’s a little bit of all the she wolves that we’ve met in the past. Stubborn, insightful, kind, a little crazy, has a smart mouth, and the list goes on and on. She’s all of them wrapped up in a human package. Gwen made this book. Don’t get me wrong the story was great, the romance was sexy, the sex was hot, but Gwen was the standout for me that really made this book pop!
Finally some insight into the dark and broody Zander. Getting to hear his history and see his close friendship with both Jesse and Bracken really endeared him to me. I’ve always liked him but, he never really stood out to me until Suzanne let us inside his head. Needless to say his got my full attention now.
This is just another fantastic book in a series of fantastic books. Suzanne knows how to write and she really knows how to write wolf shifters.
