Alpha Marked, #5

The Speed Sniffing continues… Lorelei finds herself sucked into a vortex in the middle of teaching a gun safety class. That’s so hard to believe. Not the being sucked into a vortex, the Lorelei teaching a gun safety class. That woman did NOT know gun safety and that really stuck out for me. I’m a country girl with all that entails. Trust me.

Moving on, the back-story concerning the five families continues as Lorelei meets her destined mates Zeke and Dylan. These two are as opposite as two men can get but their magic meshes and it recognizes Lorelei. There are some snafus in the bonding department that involves the frantic search for the missing third Twynham sister Paisley. I had trouble getting on board since this trio seemed much more in control of their faculties, whereas the proceeding books had the men totally out of it from the moment they met their marked.

I felt history on all involved parties could have been more fleshed out and would have helped me establish more of a connection with the story. The story was missing the chemistry the previous books had and Lorelei fell into line way too fast for my taste; a little drama there was called for. The weakest link in the series to date.

Book Blurb for Lorelei

Thirty and single? Well, getcha ass to the Gathering! Wait… what?

Lorelei is a hint over thirty—nobody better ask how much of a hint—and isn’t sure why the hell she’s been magically hauled to the land of werewolves. But she has. Which sucks. At least they stole her while she was at the gun range. Go Pink Pistol of Doom! So, they stole her, she stole a cell phone in return, and all is crazy in her new werewolf-laced world. It gets even crazier when, 1—she discovers her sisters have been kidnapped, too, and 2—werewolves are sexy as all get out. Lorelei is determined to come to her sisters’ rescue and well, see what Dylan and Zeke have to offer.

Dylan and Zeke can’t believe they’ve found their mate. Even though word was passed around that Wardens can have mates, they never thought they’d find theirs. And yet, here she is. Lorelei—gorgeous, lush, and curved in all the right places—calls to their magic and heats up their wolves. They want to lick her from head to toe… together. And they will, once they get that little gun out of her hands. Hell, maybe she could keep it. She is sexy even when she threatens their lives.

They found her and now they’re gonna mate her… as soon as they take care of the powerful five families threatening to take Lorelei from them. Blood may be involved. Sucks to be those guys.
