There’s no escaping a Dire Wolf on the hunt
Even as the playboy of the Dire Wolves, Levi isn’t exactly a soft touch. He likes his liquor, his women, and his photographs...but he also has an affinity for sharp knives and claws. What starts as an assignment to investigate humans finding their way onto a pack’s land quickly becomes something darker, more dangerous, and a whole lot hotter than he expected.
Amy refuses to leave her pack behind, but living in the small town at the base of their mountain gives her enough freedom not to feel trapped. So does running the diner she owns and loves. But someone’s been watching her a little too closely, and it’s not the handsome wolf shifter who crashes into her kitchen one night looking at her as if she is the last woman on earth.
One soldier who’s never cared enough stay, one woman whose roots run too deep to leave, and a stalker with more than just peeping on his mind. In the world of the Dire Wolves, a simple mission means standing your ground and fighting to the end. But this time, a single glance blows simple right off the mountain and forces Levi to run when he’d rather stand and fight…just as long as his mate is running with him.
One soldier, one fight…one chance at forever.
A pack in the Appalachian Mountains has found human track circling pack territory, but because the pack has an Omega in their midst, the threat cannot be ignored. NALB turns to the Dire Wolves, and Leviathan, the youngest of the seven, volunteers for the job. Little does he know that the mission will take him to meet his destiny...
I thought the danger to the Omega shewolves was over with the end of the Feral Breed Motorcycle Club series, but turns out no matter what happens, there's always peril for a female, no matter the breed.
I liked this story. Unlike the previous ones, where Omegas were in danger because of some power play and politics, this one had a pretty close-to-home vibe with a stalker that in the end turned out to be someone pretty much unexpected thanks to all the red herrings thrown into the mix.
I liked both leading characters, Levi and Amy, and their "romance" was sweet and sexy, I kept looking forward to the scenes with Levi's brothers (in arms). I'm intrigued by Mammon (who's next in line for a book), and Thaus, and beyond curious as to "meet" the de facto Alpha of the bunch, Luc. Thaus was big, creepy, and moody, but apparently Luc is even more so. Hello, intrigue and curiosity.
Anyway, the pacing was good, the story flowed nicely, the suspense was intense and gripping, keeping the reader wondering, and on the edge of the seat in anticipation, and the resolution more than satisfactory. Yet another great addition to the series. Can't wait for more. ;)
