When Nika had emigrated from California to Norwich, England to run a pub with her then British-born boyfriend, she'd never expected him to leave her for another woman when the going got rough. Now gun shy when it comes to men, she's sworn them off for a while. Until a hunky man comes to the pub one night and asks if she's on the menu. Not ready to start a new relationship, she fights her attraction for him. Garrick knows Nika is his mate when her scent stirs his wolf. Having never really cared if he found his mate or not, now that he's found her, he wants her as his. Trying to tell her he is an immortal werewolf warrior is something he wants to put off until she gets to know him better. But Nika forces his hand when she tells him to reveal his secrets or lose her. But telling her the truth may cause him to lose her anyway.
Reluctantly His is book number three in this series and just like the first two books I adored this one. In this story we get to meet Garrick’s mate: Nika. Nika is an American woman who relocated to the UK to run a pub with her now ex boyfriend. So when Garrick begins to pursue her she is nervous and wary to say the least. Add in Nathan and his werewolves and the chaos ensues.
I was pulled into this story right from the start. Nika is a strong and feisty woman who can and will stand on her own two feet. In under a year she has relocated, bought and opened a pub and lost a boyfriend yet she is still standing tall. Garrick is a great guy who finds love and is willing to fight for it. The two make a wonderful couple. The love that the two share shines throughout the story. I really enjoyed the way that Nika deals with everything that happens to her, making her my favorite heroine so far from this series. Watching her fight for not only her life but Garrick’s as well was a great read. It was nice to see her realize the love she has for Garrick and deal with all that life has thrown at her.
Once again Marisa Chenery weaves a wonderful tale full of love and magic that keeps you glued to the pages. This author has quickly become an automatic buy for me and I cannot wait for the next book in this series.
