Harley Vincent is resigned to life in the human world. Sure, being a margay shifter is half her nature, but life among humans gives her the freedom to roam and do as she pleases. That is, until anti-shifter extremists target her, putting her life in immediate danger.
When an old acquaintance and onetime fling, Jesse Dalton, shows up to offer the protection of his pack, Harley hesitates. She may have feelings for Jesse that go beyond their one-night stand, but life among shifters means giving over her independence to the needs of pack. Plus Mercury Pack has its own threat to face: a rich half-shifter is determined to claim their territory at any cost.
Jesse, who lost his true mate as a child, has wanted Harley since their night together, and he’s not letting her go again. They may not be destined for each other, but he knows she belongs to him and with his pack. Even if he can convince her to join him now, can he convince her to stay?
4 Refreshing Stars.
This book is a breath of fresh air. I love Suzanne Wright and the world that she has created. Each and every single book and if you haven’t read anything by her then I would go to your computer and one click her books right now.
So you’re wondering how is this can be a breath of fresh air.
Our heroine Harley Vincent is a margay wild cat not a wolf. This alone makes it different than the other books. She has a lot of feline characteristics which made this book unique.
As a half shifter she has spent time in both worlds. Her pack life is different to what a normal pack would be. Harley has resorted to roaming. It doesn’t help that her father Clive Owen is meant to be the leader of The Movement.
But that all comes to a screeching halt.
Jesse Dalton enforcer with the Mercury pack had one night with a margay cat and since then has been smitten. They have history deep and painful history.
Harley was the scapegoat for what happened to Mia. Jesse knows the truth but his old pack not so much. There is a backstory which is heart-breaking.
But amazingly enough this wasn’t the main focus in the book which didn’t make it dull as dishwater.
Jesse Dalton came straight out and said it all.
“I don’t play games, Harley, so I’ll tell you straight. I want you. In my bed. In my life. Where you belong.”
Praise the Lord no hassle there. The overall plot for the book was also different. It didn’t resort back to extremists and all the nasty things that they do. Which also was refreshing not to read about. But with a half shifter who is a bad sociopath and sick to the core.
The unknown star of the book Cassidy. So adorable.
The whole mate thing wasn’t a push or pull situation where it is denied. Nope. It developed well and then was no annoying barriers put up to make it difficult for them.
I would still like a book with Cain Holt I don’t care if he is a sociopath.
It was hard to get into the book to begin with because I switched the genre up and it just felt odd there was one time where I wanted to put it down and come back to it at some point. I’m ecstatic I didn’t.
