There’s nothing like a good-‘ol-boy wolf. And ace security expert Ricky Lee Reed serves, seduces, and protects with all the right moves…
Sure, Toni Jean-Louis Parker has to be the responsible oldest sister to a crazy-brilliant clan of jackal siblings. But now she’s cutting loose for some hot, sweaty, no-commitments fun—and the sexy, slow-talking, swift-moving predator assigned to keep her family safe is just the right thing to shapeshift her love life into overdrive. Trouble is, he’s starting to get all obsessive wolf on her every time he looks in her direction…
Getting serious about anyone isn’t in Ricky Lee Reed’s plans. Hell, even now he doesn’t really have a plan—outside of catching whomever is threatening this dangerously brilliant family. But the more he gets of Toni, the more he’s howling for her. And whatever it takes to convince her what they have is everything, well, this wily wolf is down for the sizzling chase…
Praise for Shelly Laurenston:
“Hot shape-shifters and even hotter passion.” —New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter
“Quirky characters, madcap antics, snappy dialogue, charged love scenes and sitcomesque humor keep things move at a breakneck pace.”—Publishers Weekly
“Hilarious, sexy fun. The dialogue is smart and funny, and at times outrageously shocking.” –Heroes & Heartbreakers
“A little bit of everything…humor, passion, and suspense with a touch of paranormal.” –FreshFiction
Once again, Shelly Laurenston has hit one out of the park. Welcome back some of your old friends and meet some new ones in the next chapter of the Pride series.
As with all of Laurenston works, you can count on snarky dialogue, hilarious hi-jinks roaring lions and some delicious sexy times. Her characters are multifaceted and realistic, with cute and geeky quirks.
I would recommend that you have read the rest of the series before embarking on this book. The main story line is suitable as a stand-alone but there are references to a background story that is from previous books that would confuse new readers.
A great story, fabulous characters and a delightful geeky twist. Get reading this one ASAP.
“Make her a sling,” the Russian ordered the others. She looked at Toni. “You’ll be fine tomorrow I’m impressed you didn’t cry like snivelling cat.”
“It’s not that I don’t want to.”
“All that matters is that you don’t…”
“… And I treat my momma right at all times, and not just ’cause I’m afraid of her. Even though I kind of am.”
“Why am I on your chest? Why was I sleeping on your chest?” “‘Cause I’m cuddly?”
… they all reacted as any sane person would react when they suddenly had a large polar bear sidling up to them – they screamed like little girls and spun around…
“That’s because you know OCD when you see it. You’re seeing Troy’s future. Fear that.”
