Review by: Peppermint
Danny has decided to stay at Mystic U in the wilds of Wyoming because his new lovers, Heather and Lee, are just too hard to resist. A lot of people want Danny gone, though, and some of them aren’t afraid to show it in dangerous ways. Lee and Heather are resolute about keeping Danny with them, and alpha male Lee is determined to keep them all safe. Can Danny pass his classes and manage to stay alive?
Danny has everything a man can dream of. When he pursued Heather, a classmate at Mystic U, he not only got one mate, but two. But the happiness doesn’t last long. Someone in Wolf Creek is not happy about the arrangement between Danny, Heather and Lee, and will stop at nothing to make Danny disappear.
This quick read was sizzling from beginning to end. But what do you expect from a bunch of college kids? Even though they should be focusing on their school work, sex is really the only thing occupying their minds.
I enjoyed the fact that the antagonist is unknown. There are a lot of people within the pack upset by the fact that Danny, some city kid going to a local college, is involved with a couple that will eventually be one of the most powerful if not THE most powerful in the pack. With so many upset pack members, the individual acting on their feelings could be anyone. I think it added a little more excitement to the novel as we tried to figure out who the unknown antagonist was.
This story is a follow-up to the previous release, Wolf 101. I didn't have the pleasure of reading the first story, but the plot on this one did not leave me feeling as if I missed anything series-wise. It did however leave me unfulfilled, because the story has no conclusion. It ends right at the climax. I prefer for each story in a series to have its own plot that is resolved at the end of the story. This made it difficult for me to fully enjoy the story.
You'll find the relationship between these three characters very interesting. Lee, being an Alpha, is very determined to keep Heather and Danny safe no matter what. I find it refreshing that, although Heather tends to argue with Lee about small things, she and Danny allow Lee to be the alpha and protector. Also by being with these two, Danny seems to be really developing into a stronger male. With all of Heather's sexual needs being met, everyone is getting something out of the relationship.
If you are in need of a quick story to help make it through the day, this just might be the one for you. A fun read that I give 3 cherries.
