This was a kick ass Paranormal Romance about the leader or Alpha, of the Philly area, Tristan. His presence exudes power, strength, and sexuality. And right now he is pissed! Someone, werewolf or human, he is unsure, had the audacity to burn down his club last week. HIS CLUB! However with the help of a few higher ups in the city, he has his new club Noir, that he must commence the grand opening of. Even though rage is boiling under his skin, and he is itching to wage a war, he pulls his self through his speech using his charisma and the small sliver of control he has left on his rage. He charms his way with the crowd, and once the socialites are finished, he and his most trusted head to Noir's office for a meeting with the other leaders. It's time for answers, yesterday. And he will get them. As he sits at the head of the table and explains to his audience of leaders what has occurred, he flashes through the only video clips that survived the fire. These clips show a woman, human from what they gather by the blood spilled by the boa constrictors cage that she broke into to grab the snake from the fire. He wants to know, who is this woman? Did she set his club ablaze? And did she have help? During the meeting he is informed someone has come forward with information his "person of interest". He storms from the meeting and speak to the holder of this info.
Tristan is horrified by the way his "person of interest" has been treated by Alexandra. He knew to expect some amount of blood sipping, but the woman on her knees begging for help has been mauled over and over, she is filthy. This is not acceptable. He grabs the woman up and he and his right hand man, err wolf, storm out. He gets her to his penthouse, calls their packs nurse practitioner to help heal this woman, this human woman that he intends on interrogating the hell out of as soon as she is rested, fed, and healed.
To Tristan's astonishment, this woman seems to heal over night, gone is the woman who could barely hold her head up, the woman he feared wouldn't make it through the night. The woman is now flittin' through his kitchen in only his T-shirt singing WHAT? is she singing to eggs? "Eggies, eggies, where are you. Surely he has eggs." he hears her say. "He does." he states. She jumps and turns to him, stuttering about breakfast. And he is trying to one, keep his blood from flooding south at the site of her, and two figure out how in hell she went from as weak as a fawn, to this, well THIS, in his kitchen.
Oh Tristan caught it, he saw her (very easily) slide into submission. To any other, they may have missed it, but to an Alpha, a seasoned pack leader, uh huh, he saw it, but why? And how? Only a wolf, or one that has spent ALOT of time with a pack could slide that gracefully into the wolf submissive stance. And she not only did, but this little sexy thing nailed it. Then in the next instant he saw her resolve and watched as she pulled her shields up. She has secrets, secrets that he will uncover. Did the medicine she all but had a heart attack trying to convince them to retrieve from her car last night hold any part in her secrets? The nurse practitioner said the bottle and the pills were unmarked. If it is just a generic vitamin of some sort why did it yield the power to take her from the verge of a panic attack to complete calm and rest? No, Dr. Kalli Williams, the Veterinarian is hiding something. And he will find out what it is, and he will get the answers to the questions he is going to ask. He is Alpha, this is what he does. For the safety of the pack, each man, woman, and child in his pack. He is going to uncover every single thing this human is hiding. And he thinks the best way to go about this is to use his charm, his art of seduction. This will be more fun than he thought, thinking back to the torched club's video clips, yep, thing just turned interesting and alot more fun than he originally expected.
This Paranormal romance has everything a reader could ever wish for, mystery, knuckle gripping your kindle anxiety, and sex scenes that make your eyes roll back in your head and your breath hitch and become a pant. I caught myself saying out loud (more than once I gleefully tell you) "Oh shit! really? That's effin' HOT!"
I started this book a little apprehensive, see it's the 3rd book in a series, I was nervous that I'd be lost from the beginning, but no, I not one time felt lost. This is a stand alone book, and what it really did to me, was make me go to goodreads and tag the first 2 books in this series as: to read! Kym Grosso does an excellent job of creating awesome and multi faceted characters and combining it with an OFF THE CHARTS story plot!
This book is one of my all time favorites paranormal romance novels. And I'm usually a fang banger, or vamp groupie, but I'd get on all fours for Tristan ANY DAMN DAY ; )
