Talia Landon, a red fox shifter with a weight complex, knew she was in trouble when she saw Ford Wylde for the first time. The alpha bear shifter was the type of male she should stay away from. It was clear he was far too experienced in sex, but what was supposed to be a one-night stand turns into a mating with a Wylde bear.
Ford wasn’t going to give up Talia, not after he marked her as his mate. But when Ford’s ex-girlfriend, Mina, comes back to Sweet Water after ten years, he knows he has to be honest about his relationship with Talia. Things get sticky when Mina shows an interest in him again, but Ford makes it known that Talia is his, and nothing and no one was going to get in the way of him claiming his female.
Review: I try not to have someone that I just really hate in a book but I will have to say that it didn’t work out for this book. Mina is one mean, rich girl that gets anything she wants and doesn’t care who she hurts in the process. She’s always going to cheat on the one she is with and not think twice about it. Mina is like the wicked witch in the fairy tales.
When Ford found out that his girlfriend of six years had been cheating on him he went off. He knew that something was wrong because she could never wait to leave and when they had sex she never got into it anymore. If Ford is the way that he is described in this book I would never let him go. It almost makes him lose his one true mate ten years later. He knows that he can’t fight it and he just needs to give in. His bear is taking no chances and will take over if he needs to.
Talia knows that she didn’t get the good looks in her family and she is a little over weight. That changes when she meets Ford. He makes her see herself in a different life. Talia just wishes she could stop her brother from marrying Mina and making them all miserable. Even though she doesn’t know Ford all that much her fox feels safe with him and she always trust her fox.
I never thought I would see the day that a fox and bear mated but it seems in this series that you can’t mate with the same animal that you are. That was something that I didn’t see coming and I really hated it when I found out that this was the second book in the series. I really don’t believe that I am missing anything but I will be going back and reading the first book so that I can read the third. I really hope that Talia’s brother finds the right woman for him. That part was really sad in this book and I won’t give too much away. I don’t want to ruin the story for anyone.
This is an author that I have been reading from just recently. I saw that she wrote books with another author that I liked and I knew that I would like her books. I liked the story line and I want more now.
