This has to be the best effing book I've read in for-freaking-ever.

Taryn is awesome. It's a fact. You've got no choice but to except it. She is brash and free and has that whole dominant female thing going for her. She has a quick mouth and it's hilarious. Her life is kind of screwish at the beginning because her dad's an asshole who's trying to get her to mate an even bigger asshole. She has a ton of issues. She's also latent, meaning she can't shift into wolf form. If I was into chicks I'd so go for her. Shame she'd be taken and is fictional. But she is wicked cool.

Trey has issues of his own. Like the fact his father banished him for winning a challenge against him. He had to go with half of the pack (the ones who were on his side of the debate) at the age of fourteen and start his own pack as alpha. Talk about a hard childhood. And now his fathers dead his uncle is alpha and wants to merge the packs back together. With him as alpha of course.

Together they help each other out. Taryn get's a temporary mate away from the asshole her father wanted her to mate and Trey gets an alliance with her father with plenty of wolves against Trey's uncle. A great deal. But maybe not so temporary. Once the sparks have flown Taryn and Trey may just realise there's more than sexual attraction between each other.

What did I think of the book? It was awesome! By far one of the best books I've read in ages. It had just the right level of spunk. Taryn was by far my favourite character. Man, I envy her. And just how silly is that? Envying a fictional character? Just shows how cool she is. She has her quirks but she doesn't care what people say or do; she's her own person, so free and full of a humorous light that radiates from the pages of the book (er, the screen of my Kindle).

And Trey. Super hot. Crazy sexy. I absolutely loved him. Sex between Trey and Taryn was so hot! The crazy shit they did together was so sexy and awesome. And I really liked that Taryn gave in some but not always. It made it interesting.

Oh and here are some of my favourite quotes from Taryn:

"I'd rather lie under an elephant suffering from diarrhea with my mouth open wide."
"Love is giving someone the power to completely destroy you, and hoping that they won't."
"Crazy bitch? Oh no, honey I'm an angel, I swear. The horns are only there to hold up the halo."
"I'm not tire. I'm just checking my eyelids for holes. It could take awhile."

So yes, this was an awesome book (I need a new word. I'm using awesome too much. Blah). And I definitely recommend reading it.

I'm not sure if I want to read the next book though. I'm a little afraid I won't like it, y'know? This book was just so great I don't think any of the others could compare. And the others are different characters. So I may not like them at all. Trey and Taryn have a super cool relationship and are great to read about. I don't want to be disappointed with other characters. And at the same time, I don't want them to be exactly the same. I hate it when authors make all of their characters exactly the same. So I'm a little nervous about continuing the series, but I may just go on because of my curiosity. I think Dante is next. I guess the only way to find out whether or not I'll like the others is if I read them.

If your inner wolf and your body react rather enthusiastically to a psychotic Alpha male who’s own wolf has a tendency to turn feral, it can’t be a good thing, can it? Entering into a bargain with him wouldn’t be good either. Unfortunately, Taryn Warner, a latent wolf shifter, doesn’t have many options open to her right now. Okay, she has no options. Basically it comes down to whether she’ll do what it takes to escape the arranged mating with the sick SOB that her father set up. As the answer in this case is yes, it looks as though she’ll have to agree to Trey Coleman’s deal…she’ll have to mate with him instead. 

Having always disliked shifter politics, Trey Coleman hadn’t bothered trying to form alliances with other packs. Now that his uncle – a wolf with many alliances – means to take Trey’s territory and his pack, he has no option but to form some alliances of his own very quickly or he’ll be easily outnumbered in the upcoming battle. He figures that the easiest way to do that would be to mate with a female who’s Alpha is powerful and influential. There’s only one problem with that – he would then be stuck with her, and the last thing Trey wants is a mate. When he hears of Taryn’s situation, he offers her a deal – if she falsely claims he’s her true mate and allows him to claim her, he’ll save her from her arranged mating and then let her leave after the battle with his uncle is over. 

Sounds like a pretty straightforward deal...but soon Taryn and Trey realize they got more than they bargained for. Their mating instincts to protect and possess are weighing on them, they crave each other’s touch and company, and their inner wolves don’t like it whenever they’re apart. Add in that they’ll have to deal with this for an entire three months until the day of the battle finally arrives, and they’ve got themselves a recipe for disaster – or maybe for something quite the opposite. 

Warning: This novel contains an extremely sarcastic Alpha female, a broody possessive Alpha male, bitter in-laws, voyeuristic enforcers, a whole lot of dirty talk, and steamy bedroom battles for dominance.

You're so enthusiastic about this book. :) I'm glad you liked it. Taryn does sound like a badass character, and this type of heroine always turns a book into a must-read for me.
Usually, when I read a book I absolutely adored, I jump right to the next one. I never fear that the second book in a series might disappoint me. I don't know why... maybe because I trust the writer to do the same great job the second time... and the third time...
