A wolf mafia, human trafficking, kidnapping and a lot of secrets make this romance into something closer to a fast-paced action adventure. There is so much going on that you really have to keep reading due to being so wrapped up in all of the stuff happening. The story is centered around Lindsay but I found several of the secondary characters to have just as much interest. In fact, I would love to learn their stories. This story isn’t light and happiness. There is a grittiness to it and bad things do happen. Things don’t always go the way you want them to. And, while I did like Lindsay, I can’t say I was as invested in Wayne. I never really warmed up to his character, though I did fall in love with his brother. The complexities of werewolf society were not always clear and some of the plot was a bit thin…..you just needed to take some stuff at face value and not think about it. So, overall……some good characters, extremely complex plot, not a lot of depth in the plot and a glimpse into what happens afterwards. Some good and some bad but it was an enjoyable story with plenty of plot twists.
The Story: Lindsay knows she was kidnapped only because she was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Still, she’s glad she was as her little brother was the target. However, she sure wishes her ex wasn’t one of the victims. As he was brought up in the foster care system, he can’t figure out why he’s there. No one has the money to pay his ransom. There are 5 of them being kept and after the ransoms are paid, only one was being freed, Lindsay. The rest are being sold in Europe. Lindsay is going after her brother but can she convince Wayne, a pack alpha to help her? Wayne wants her in his pack. Maybe they can make a deal!
How far would you go to save your family?
Movies and books have made being a monster sound cool.
Lindsay can’t wear silver jewelry or get drunk with her friends, but hey, she sprouts fur and fangs during the full moon. Totally rad, right? Not. Forget about exploring the beast within, Lindsay just wants to graduate from nursing school. When a stroll in the park ends with her and her little brother being surrounded by masked goons who want to sell them overseas, Lindsay has no choice but to change.
Despite her best efforts, these kidnappers know how to handle a werewolf inexperienced in hand-to-paw combat. She regains consciousness hours after the scuffle to find her brother gone. In a panic, she turns to the only werewolf she knows: Wayne, Mr. Werewolf Pride, the guy Lindsay rejected none-too-kindly several years ago. Being the forgiving kind of guy he is, Wayne agrees to help. . .so long as Lindsay joins his pack. Living among others of her kind is the last thing Lindsay wants, but for her brother’s sake, she bites her tongue and agrees.
Lindsay learns a few things while traveling through Europe in search of her brother. One: Being a werewolf can be pretty badass when you know how to use your abilities. Two: Being a freak isn’t so bad when you’re surrounded by other freaks. And three: She might have misjudged Wayne.
When she and Wayne stumble onto the mastermind behind the kidnapping, this werewolf mafia king decides they know too much. Lindsay and Wayne should get out of dodge but, they know that unless this man is stopped, innocent people will die.
