The Blurb:
Half-shifter Shaya Critchley may hold a submissive role in her pack, but she’s done taking orders. After her Alpha wolf mate refused to claim her—but committed to interfering in her life—she took off. Now she hides from him, posing as a human in a town full of anti-shifter extremist groups. She thinks he’ll never find her again, and that suits her just fine. But she’s wrong.

Nick Axton can barely control his feelings for Shaya, but he could never claim her—not if he truly cares for her. The degenerative brain condition he keeps secret would ultimately leave her with a burden rather than a mate. But when Shaya runs away, Nick can’t bear the thought of never seeing her again. After tracking her down, he discovers Shaya’s feisty and passionate side in the process…a side he’d never seen before.

Under the menacing gazes of territorial local packs and violent human extremists, Nick vows to finally claim the spirited Shaya…and despite her initial resistance, Shaya just might find his fiery determination to be the ultimate aphrodisiac.

My Review

                        3 Insecure Stars

“I’ve missed your scent. It drives me crazy.” Drinking in every detail of her face, he smoothed the pad of his thumb across her cheekbone. “I’ve missed looking at you. Watching you.”

Okay so Not as good as the others. So Nick and Shaya yeah..............

“Just go.” “Not without you.” “You have no choice in the matter. I can’t go with you.” “Why?” “Because I don’t trust you!”

So I am noticing a recurring theme Messed up Alpha man with dominance issues and anal fetishes and Sassy mouth chicks with issues that can kick ass. There is always some kind of war that ends with a fight and another person that wants one of the two main characters for a lover so much so that they are willing to kill the competition. 

The story was okay but it wasn't great. I got a little bored and there was a few times I wanted to reach in my kindle and Slap Shaya. At first I felt sorry for her, but I lost all respect for her when she played childish silly bitch games and went on a date with another man just to see if Nick would leave her, and hurt him, after 3 weeks of his kissing her ass for another chance. I mean really you go on a date with another guy???????

He had made himself a part of her everyday life to the extent that if he left again, it would have a huge impact on her an impact she wasn’t sure she could bear. If that was going to happen, she would rather he did it sooner instead of later. If one thing could succeed in making him give up, it was her going on a date with another guy. If he still didn’t give up…well, there would be no denying that he deserved a chance. It was a huge gamble, and it could blow up in her face, but she needed to know how committed he was to sticking around before she even properly considered giving him a chance. Really WTF?

For real whats with all the butt sex??????? I get it in some books but in this series it's like the freakin Holy Grail

Driving one finger deep inside her, he swirled it around and then withdrew it to circle the puckered hole lower down. “Has anyone ever been here before, Shay?” He’d asked it so casually that Shaya could almost believe her answer was inconsequential. But she knew better. Male shifters liked to claim their mates in every way possible, including anally, and dominant males in particular liked for that to be virgin territory. They wanted their mates to have saved something for them to be theirs and theirs alone. “No.”

and calling it a puckered hole made me giggle like a child and OMG what is with the butt plug...Sex toys are fine but to be sitting around with everyone eating and talking with a butt plug in your ass ?????

When a hand abruptly came down hard on her ass, she jumped. “That was for ignoring me when I told you to fight your orgasm, trying to escape your punishment.” Again he spanked her ass. “That was for almost taking my head off with a baseball bat oh no, baby, I haven’t forgotten about that.” He made the third spank extra hard. “And that was for going on a date with the web designer and almost tearing my heart out of my fucking chest.” He lightly massaged the prints he’d left on her ass, blowing on them. Then he drove one finger inside her and swirled it around, loving the look of her bent over, submitting to him and finally fully accepting that she was his. “Christ, you’re so wet.”

kinda of a let down I hope the next book is a little different
