Chasing Paradise

Alpine Woods Shifters, #2

Chasing Paradise is the second book of Sondrae Bennet series. This book is about alpha brother Ethan, Wolf shifter, and his mate Gwen. Ethan has left his pack and gone on vacation to a shifter owned vacation spot to get away from adoring optional mates. All Ethan has on his mind is a little rest and relaxation with the opposite sex.

Gwen, Otter shifter, is the manager of the hotel and has no interest in Ethan. But Ethan tracks her down and mates her and brings her home to his pack. Gwen finds it hard to believe that Ethan can love her and leads him on a merry chase. But love rules between this wolf and otter.

Chasing Paradise is a fun read, but too short. I am glad to see there are more books in the series to keep the fun going. This is not your typical shifter book as our alpha is a wolf and his new mate is an otter. I loved Gwen –she is a strong women (otter) that gives Ethan a hard time and makes him work for their relationship. There isn’t anything a wolf likes more than a chase and Gwen gives him one. Ethan is your typical alpha. He has great looks and is spoiled by all and women. Women come easy to him, but not Gwen. The characters in Chasing Paradise made this a fun book to read. I am looking forward to reading the next books in the series to see what happens to the rest of the pack.

Book Blurb for Chasing Paradise

He'll do whatever it takes to earn back her trust.

A vacation is exactly what Ethan needs to escape the mate hungry females in his pack. Determined to have fun, he can't think of a better way to start than sampling all the different flavors the shifter only resort has to offer, and not the food variety. But after he meets Gwen, no one else holds any interest for him. Ethan came on vacation to avoid mating. There's no way he's going to give up his freedom without a fight.

Gwen is devastated when she hears her mate denying everything they are to each other. She can't sit by, watching him fool around with other girls at the resort. Or worse, crawl back, unable to resist the mating pull but not really wanting her. She needs to get away and her own vacation sounds like the perfect plan. But she should have remembered what her mother always taught her, never run from a predator unless you want them to chase you. The hunt is on...
