Review:  When I first received this book and I read the blurb, and then realized that this was book 5 in a series, I had serious concerns about being able to read the book and to be able to follow the plot and figure out what the heck is going on within the story.  I found the blurb to be confusing and I was truly concerned.  Once I started reading, my trepidation and concerns fled and I was totally engrossed in the story and I found that I really liked the book.  I would like to read the books that came before this one as I would like to have the whole story fleshed out for me, but all in all this was one entertaining read.

Zoe was a strong independent leader who put her pack members first and struggled to make sure everyone got their needs met.  What I liked about her was seeing her be weak and struggling to find balance with her needs and her pack’s needs.  When I say weak, I don’t mean in a bad sarcastic way, I mean in a vulnerable approachable way that I felt I could relate to.  She was a likable character.

Booker loved Zoe deeply and was not afraid of expressing himself and he would protect her come hell or high water.  I love it when a man loves his woman that much that he doesn’t care who knows it.

What I found misleading about the blurb, was all of this complications with all of these women relationships, and how will I be able to understand what’s going on.  The real story is the relationship between Zoe and her mate Booker and the struggles that they face within the plot line.  I loved reading about them and their relationship.  I loved the tension that built between them and how they struggled to keep their relationship going.  Will they make it?  I don’t know.

There is so much more to this story then I have commented on.  I can’t talk about much more because I would give the whole story away.  I didn’t go much into Chalina or Ryker due to the fact that if I commented on them I could give the story away and I don’t want to do that.  Chalina and Ryker aren’t bad or evil and as I reader I didn’t hate them.  I wished they didn’t need to be there, but they were needed to help Zoe and Booker.  They needed to be there to help the story along, and that’s all I’m going to say about them.
