Driven by Hunger

Sequel to Line of Sight and Hot Moon Rising but may be read as a stand-alone story.

Desiree Holt is great with the sexy scenes. She makes them smoke. This story is more sex than love or danger, but it held my interest. I was a little bothered by the fact that pack alpha Derek and formerly shy Hannah had lots of sex together just before they each found or recognized their mate; then they each had lots more sex with the mate. For Hannah, this was the same day, and for Derek, it was a day later. I reminded myself that the pack is driven by hunger (hence the title, duh), and that made it a little easier for me to stomach. The bad guy was truly creepy, and I would have liked to see a little more of his evil. Overall, this story isn't my favorite of Ms. Holt's, but I would like to read more in the series to find out more about these characters.
