After her last boyfriend hid the fact he was married, Karen Samson decides to take a break from dating. Lately she’s burned out and bored with the daily humdrum routine of life. The only thing breathing spice into her ordinary existence is erotic dreams of a sexy green-eyed man.
After suffering years of loneliness, Anthony Wolfson finds his mate, Karen Samson. The problem; he’s werewolf, she’s human. His instincts scream to claim her. His need to protect urges him to woo her. Unbeknown to him, fate has another plan for them involving a young, cocky werewolf and a dark alley.
Karen and Anthony burn up the pages of this book. I thought my e-reader was going to spontaneously combust.
I really liked Ms Yules characterization. Even though this was a short story she made me care about the characters.
Anthony is your sexy alpha male type who, from the beginning is overly possessive and dominate, especially where Karen is concerned. Karen isn't really the type to just roll over and take what's thrown at her or so she says. Yet she's willing to accept Anthony and what he tells her, because of some weird connection she feels. This seemed strange, but if she wasn't the type of woman who usually accepts fate then why start now? It felt as if she was just going along for the ride, accepting her situation way too easily. I thought she should've held back on the sex for a minute and ask what the heck is going on and why me. I wished Ms. Yule had shown Karen learning more about what was happening to her.
This is definitely a hot, short story and there's a lot of sex. While it didn't detract from the plot, I found myself wondering if it was really necessary. Don't get me wrong I love the steamy scenes, but I really thought it was the stuff between the sex that actually pushed the story forward.
Still, Ms Yule wrote a good story with a well developed plot that pulled me in and made me want to read the book. She teases you along giving you drops of information here and there, and it really caused me to want to know more.
I liked Ms. Yule's writing style, and the way she developed her characters. She also writes smoking hot sex scenes, and I really did enjoy this book.
