After being ditched only weeks before her wedding, Cassie Stockwell wasn’t out looking for a hookup.
Then the devastatingly handsome bartender she’d been trying not to obsess over for months offered to give her a ride home. What could one night hurt?
When his future was almost taken away after one impulsive decision, wolf-shifter Jace Miller waited patiently for months before making a move on the woman he knew to be his destined mate. But will one night of passion keep his little human by his side once she learns of his world and the danger it brings to her doorstep?
I’m not sure how to review this book without gushing like a fangirl. The characters were fleshed out and felt so real, like I could sit down and have a chat with them. Jace was simply adorable, Alpha without being asshole. Now I’ll freely admit, I love psycho men, it’s a failing, I know. But wow, Jace was great. And Cassie, damn! I rarely feel like gushing over a female character. Usually they’re just there, you know? Nope, not Cassie. She was smart, thought things through logically, accepted that shifters were physically stronger than her and let them do their thing. And when they had a misunderstanding, she was like “You are damn well gonna listen to me!” *sigh* Total girl crush.
So umm, excuse me while I read the next book. I need to read about Mercury, and it’s waiting for me on my Kindle.
