Return to the sensual and feral stirrings of the Phoenix Pack as a woman who’s already bound to one man is tempted by a wolf who’s bound only to his nightly desires.
Cat shifter Mila Devereaux can’t help but see it as a betrayal. That her one true mate imprinted himself on another female was hard enough to accept. Struggling to be at peace with her loveless fate, she doesn’t fight the suggestion of entering an arranged mating. Then she meets Dominic, a pack enforcer with a notorious reputation. It’s in his very scent. This irresistible playboy—and delicious badass wolf—is making Mila’s fantasies come alive again.
Alarming, compelling, and heady with sensual energy, Dominic is an expert at making women shed their inhibitions. Now everything about him—his killer smile, his perfectly sculpted body, and his smooth-as-honey voice—is drawing in a captivating new catch. But for the first time in his life, Dominic is feeling more than a fling. He finds himself tantalized by a female who makes him think of forever. He wants all of Mila and won’t be satisfied until he has it.
As the passion grows wild, so does the risk. They’re falling in love in the shadows and secrets of their pasts. And it’s threatening to destroy everything Mila and Dominic are fighting for. And are destined for.
I received this book for free from Retailer in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
“At that moment, he wanted to own all that passion. Wanted it for himself. Wanted her for himself. And that thought made him straighten in his seat, double-blinking, because there had never been a single time in his life when he’d felt remotely possessive of a woman.”
We finally got the last book in the beloved Phoenix Pack Series, and it did not disappoint. What made this book even more anticipated is that it is Dominic’s book, and everyone has been wondering from the first book who could keep up with this smooth, hilarious wolf.
Well the answer to that question is the feisty Pallas cat, Mila. She’s stubborn enough not to give into him because let’s face it, he’s perfection, but also witty enough to keep up with his quips.
“Why are you looking so down, Mila? Let me guess—it hurt when you fell from heaven, right?”
“No. But hauling my ass out of hell was a bastard of a climb.”
Mila is struggling with what to do now when her true mate imprints on another. So we get to see the ins and outs of her cat handling that betrayal and if she’s willing to let a player like Dominic into her life after already being hurt. And let me just say that I love Mila’s family! I might be as crazy as Dominic but I want to hang out with them every day!
I’ve always loved Dominic. Funny guys are my thing. Like it’s cool if they’re hot or tough or whatever, but don’t even think about it if you can’t make me laugh. So basically Dominic. But whatevs. We definitely get more of that Dominic we all know and love.
“Roses are red, and so are other flowers. Take off your panties, I just need a few hours.”
However, what I absolutely loved the most about this book is that we finally get to see his vulnerable side and maybe a little bit of what he’s trying to hide with that humor. When trouble finds Mila, Dominic is faced with a choice he’s never had to make before.
“I’ve never needed anyone, Mila. No one has ever mattered to me the way you do.”
Hey, I’m Bre! I have been pulling all nighters to read since I was in middle school, and nothing has changed since. My love of reading turned into a love for writing and I now have my dream job — being a writer. I also get to wear pajamas to work, which is a pretty nice perk.
I love Starbuck’s tea, organizing, the ocean, and buying too many purses and books. Is there such a thing as too many purses or books? I have two energetic toddlers at home so I mostly read to stay sane.
While I genuinely enjoy a variety of genres, I enjoy getting lost in the paranormal and fantasy world and nothing can melt my heart faster than a small town romance.
