Review by: Oleander
For Elain Pardie, every night is a three dog night. With Ain, Brodey, and Cail Lyall as her mates, Elain's biggest worry is getting through her wedding. She doesn't want to let the cat out of the bag to her mom that she's living with three Alpha wolf shape-shifters.
Between learning about her new way of life, a creepy, mysterious stranger in town, and a hot-to-trot feline shifter with her sights set on Brodey, Elain's got her hands full. Not to mention her strange need for a hunt is back with a vengeance. Can life get any crazier?
Ain, Brodey, and Cail suspect it can: someone's killing shifter mates. As a cousin and his new mate move in, Ain's worries mount. And while trying to untangle secrets of Elain's distant past, Ain discovers a connection to an old family that could threaten not just their happiness...but their very lives.
Elain Pardie has tried to run away from her reality, the reality that she is in love with all three Lyall brothers. These are not just any three men; they are triplets who are also alpha shape shifters. In book three of Tymber Dalton’s Triple Trouble Series, Elain has come home with the boys.
Elain is is deeply in love with all the brothers equally, but she can’t help but continually question the relationship. Things come to an ugly head when Elain and Brodey run into someone from Brodey’s past, a woman who he thought was the ONE. For these canine shifters finding the ONE means you've found your one and only mate for life. Through jealousy and a huge misunderstanding, Elain walks out on Brodey and questions his love and loyalty.
In the meantime Elain has neglected to let the brothers know that there is a mysterious stranger who knows her name and a little too much information about her personally. Thing is, she feels comforted in his presence--yet another secret she is keeping from her men. The Brothers are concerned for Elain’s safety when they discover what Elain’s connection is to their world. The arrival of the Lyall brother’s cousin sparks some heated feelings that Elain has concerning the mating ritual and causes some tension within the love story.
While this is a wonderful read, with fantastic characters and an intriguing plot, I don't believe it will stand alone. I feel it would be quite confusing without having read the first two books -- something that should be done in order to understand entire story.
If you desire sexy shape shifter who can’t hold their Alpha personalities at bay for the woman they love then this is the book--or the series!--for you. This erotic tale is captivating until the last word, which to its only fault is a cliffhanger. Many questions are unanswered but feed your desire for more in Book Four. I hope the author hurries and gets it released soon!
