Sting Factor (kink): 3 out of 5
Talk about an emotional read. This book took me for a ride and I did not want to get off. The author does a wonderful job of pulling the emotions right out of you. Each of the main characters endears themselves to the reader and has you cheering on love. Emma is a sweet young woman who is wronged from the very start. Her mother has made sure that Emma will be an outsider for all of her life. When Emma’s mother dies she is lost and finds herself in a new territory with new shifters but can she ever find peace? Ben and Ryder have their own problems to deal with and when Emma is thrown into the mix the chaos begins. Add in emotions and attractions and we have a wonderful adventure to read.
I am a big fan of Cherise Sinclair and I know that when I pick up one of her books I will be in for an emotionally satisfying read. This book hits the nail right on the head. I was laughing one minute and tearing up the next. While Emma is naive because of her upbringing she is still a strong and likable woman. Ben and Ryder are both good men underneath all their gruffness. Each man is special in his own way and I adored Minette. Watching both Minette and Emma grow stronger and braver was a wonderful read. The love between all of them was beautiful to see. I also enjoyed many of the supporting characters. They are great friends and the camaraderie was a nice thing to see. The people stood together to fight a common enemy. Emma and her men learn that some things are worth the risk and fighting for. I hope that there is more from this word and its inhabitants.
