Jaycee Manz has been on the run since her sixteenth birthday. After growing up fast and depending on no one, how is she supposed to handle three male werewolves who claim to be her mates? Can she learn to trust them or will she continue to run?
Dane Glassgo, alpha of his clan and a special ops commander, specializes in tracking. He's waited for the past two years to claim his mate. Nothing or no one will stop him from claiming Jaycee, not even her fear... Pierre LeBlathe, brother to Remi and bonded mate to Dane Glassgo, knows his time is limited with Jaycee. But he is bound and determined to stop anyone from hurting her...
Mark Glassgo shares alpha duties with his elder brother, but when Dane finds his mate, Jaycee, he is shocked to learn she is also his mate. What he didn't count on was that he was also mate to Remi LeBlathe... Alpha Remi LeBlathe, one of the most powerful weres in the country, has always protected what is his. When Jaycee comes into his life, mayhem erupts around them, but Remi is used to mayhem and uses it to his benefit. In seeking those who would harm his mate, Remi must learn how to listen to Jaycee's needs and desires...
Together, all four try to find peace, and the most powerful alphas in the U.S., Remi, Dane and Mark , declare war on anyone who stands in their way of claiming their runaway mate. But can the independent Jaycee be claimed? In this sizzling werewolf menage story, love, lust and power take center stage in the struggle for ultimate survival.
Jaycee has finally found her mate. At least that is what she thinks. Dane the alpha of his clan has come to claim her as his mate but as things progress it seems that there may be more than one mate for Jaycee. Three men lay claim to Jaycee as their mate - but will she be able to trust any of them? Each one is different in his own way and Jaycee loves them each. Not only must Jaycee deal with her attraction to the three men but she is also hiding out from two abusive men intent on taking her as their own.
Dane and his brother Mark are both Alpha wolves - different in many ways, yet they both love their mate. Remi an Alpha from another wolf clan finds that he too is Jaycee’s mate. Each of the men may love her, but it is hard for them to show it making Jaycee feel more like a toy than a mate. Jaycee is a strong woman who has been through and endured so much in her life yet she keeps picking herself back up and trying again. I enjoyed reading about the tentative relationship that builds between the three as well as watching Jaycee come into her powers.
This book is a very intense ride. The characters, especially Jaycee, go on a roller coaster ride of emotions. If you are looking for a sweet story where the heroine meets her hero and they live happily ever after - then this may not be the book for you. Jaycee goes through a lot of pain in this story and she has yet to resolve it all. Since this is book one I can only hope that the following books will give the reader that happy-ever-after that Jaycee deserves. I enjoyed this book but I would caution readers that it is a very intense read including some deaths of prominent characters, references to the abuse and rape of a younger Jaycee and some harsh sex scenes as well.
Trinity Blacio does a great job of bringing the readers into the world of the wolves. Jaycee and her mates are great characters and I cannot wait to see how their story concludes.
