When had life stopped being so simple? Probably around the time that Casey Frost first agreed to pay off her drug addict brother’s debt to save him from a brutal beating. It soon became a “thing.” When the dealer—who’s also an Alpha shifter—demands she do something that goes against her very being, Casey decides enough is enough. It’s while she’s confronting the Alpha that he appears—Eli Axton, a ruthless wolf shifter with a dark reputation. When their eyes lock and the mating urge violently kicks in, she knows her world is about to change.
The last unmated male in his pack, Eli feels weary and alone. Seeing his friends so happy makes the Head Enforcer acutely feel the absence of his true mate. He wouldn’t have expected to find her in the parking lot of a shifter fight club, or for her to be such an unusual breed of shifter. Certain that the female enforcer belongs to him, he doesn’t hesitate to claim her. Not everyone is happy to see Casey mated, though. Soon danger is coming at them from different angles, threatening the life they’re trying to build. Their enemy needs to be eradicated fast. But how did you destroy an enemy when you weren’t sure who they were?
I grabbed this hotness on Hoopla and devoured it yesterday. I absolutely love this author and everything she writes! The Phoenix and Mercury Pack books have been a huge source of entertainment for the past couple years. I was so excited to dive into this last installment and completely enjoyed the escape from reality.
So, here’s what I loved:
First and foremost, this author does dirty talking goodness better that best! Complete and total hotness is already on the menu when you grab one her books. This installment was no different.
Eli and Casey were so well matched. Their chemistry sizzled right from the start and burned bright throughout.
The pack dynamics and typical elements we expect from this books in this series are all there. Playful banter, trash talk, pranks, and lots of family drama.
Everything I needed, I got with the exception of angsty. This book was fairly low on the angst meter. There was no huge twist that made me antsy. These two just clicked. That was both good and bad.
Overall, I completely and thoroughly enjoyed myself and as always, if Suzanne writes it, I’ll read it.
