I’ll start off by saying I did NOT like Ariel. She seemed self-centered and cold and her actions at the beginning of the book reinforced that impression. But then she started to get caught up in her emotions rather than denying them and that’s when she showed her true colors, even though they were initially buried deep. Rob, while part animal at times whether he likes it or not, shows himself to be a gentlemen and most concerned about Ariel’s safety and happiness versus his obnoxious brother Jack. All signs lead to Jack having the next book and god help the woman he gets paired with. Once Rob and Ariel dispensed with the primal drive with drugs nature was able to take its course, although human nature did it’s best to royally screw things up.
This is the third book in the series and my favorite so far. The first had the surprise element to it, the second had the “lamb to the slaughter” element going it for it. This was the first, after the initial snarl fest, to have the couple interact with some self-control. With bigger secrets to be revealed I really look forward to the next book, especially to see Jack taken down a peg or two.
When Krista needs Ariel’s biochemical expertise because her new boyfriend can turn into a mountain lion, Ariel thinks her sister has lost her mind. But the possibility of a major discovery like this is too much of a temptation to ignore. Create a drug to stop a shifter from forcing a mating? Only if she got to test his sexual limits herself.
Rob thinks Ariel is an angel in disguise, and he immediately knows she’s the one for him. But is he strong enough to resist his animal’s need to claim her once the temptation begins?
Warning: This book contains a shifter who must resist his feral need to mate and a biochemist who is hell-bent on testing his sexual limits. You’ll never look at science the same way again.
