This series has is the perfect mix of Paranormal Romance and Romantic Suspense. We have a Dallas SWAT team, so there is all manner of the police/criminal element with lots of fantastic action and solid suspenseful moments. Mix in them all being Alpha Werewolves, and this adds a layer of Paranormal that gives this series and masterful edge. Throw in the whole HEA thing and it's the perfect mix of romance, suspense, and paranormal for those of us who just can't get enough of either genre.
Cooper has a been a sweetheart of a guy in the previous three books, helping the guys to come to terms with and accept that the awesome new woman in their life just might be The One. Being able to see Cooper get his shot at it, and almost blowing it, was lead to an excellent read.
We are back to a werewolf/human mix. But there is a serious twist this time with Everly's family that helped to fill in more world building with new details. I was happy to be able to see more of our previous couples through the eyes of Cooper, as well as getting the scoop on some secondary characters road to an HEA that spans multiple books in secondary plot lines.
Everly and Cooper had great chemistry together right from the start, with their introduction coming in the form of a bank robbery that Cooper stops, oh and while doing so, saves Everly's life. Take the following exchange for example:
“Well, if a date is the thanks you’re looking for, I can promise you one thing,” she said.
She stepped closer, and if they hadn’t been in the middle of a crime scene, he wouldn’t have been surprised if she’d gone up on her tiptoes to kiss him. And he sure as hell wouldn’t have stopped her.
“That you’re in for the very best date of your life,” she said.
I can't get enough of this series, and while you could probably read these as stand alone, you will miss the details and slow but steady world building that has been taking place through out the books. And why would you want to do that? I am as thrilled with this book as I was with the first. 4 Stars for a Great Read!
Netgalley and Sourcebooks Casablanca provided me with this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
HE'S FOUND THE ONE...
SWAT officer Landry Cooper is certain Everly Danu is The One. The problem is, she has no idea what Cooper really is. And as much as he wants to trust her, he's not sure he can share his deepest secret...
When Everly's family discovers Cooper's a werewolf, her brothers will do anything to keep them apart-they'll kill him if they have to. Everly is falling hard for the ridiculously handsome SWAT officer, and she's not about to let her brothers tell her who she can love... Until Cooper's secret is exposed and she discovers the man she thought she knew is a monster in disguise.
BUT CAN HE KEEP HER?
