Review Copy Source: Netgalley.com
For two years, Beth Williams has run from the past, and the beast that dwells inside her. She is haunted by memories of being kidnapped and the savage attack that killed her best friend. Now Beth finally thinks she's ready to move on...with Braden Edwards, a charming, irresistibly sexy man who tempts Beth to embrace the present.
But the past lurks closer than Beth realizes. Markko Bolvek, one of the werewolves who kidnapped her, has tracked her to Portland, Oregon, his pursuit fueled by a hunger for vengeance. Only Braden, a werewolf himself, senses the danger shadowing her steps. The Edwards and Bolveks have been enemies for centuries—and despite the instant connection he feels with Beth, Braden isn't sure which side of the war she's on.
With suspicion at odds with their attraction, Beth and Braden must learn to trust one another to stop Markko for good. Can Beth accept the wolf within—and love a man who embodies everything she fears?
I was enthralled with the story from the first chapter. The book was emotional, full of action, filled with a wonderful cast of characters its an all around great book for any shifter lover. The sexual tension between Beth and Braden was fantastic, not to overwhelming but aggressive enough to make you want them to hurry it up already. I loved Braden's family. The support and love were felt with every word Alvarez wrote about them and it was all completely believable. I dont think this is supposed to be a series, but I would so read another Beth book from Amanda and hope she writes one as I'm positive Beth has more to share and explore.
I gave it 4/5 stars
