About the Book: Skye, a Fae-shapeshifter halfing, could die if she doesn’t find out how to wake her dormant wolf, so mere rumors of the Wolf King’s return are enough to convince her to sneak through the portal between Faerie and Chicago in search of his aid. But the dizzyingly bright lights and sounds of the human realm are too tempting to ignore. So is the sexy shapeshifter wolf intent on capturing her—the one who stirs her sleeping wolf just long enough to bind the handsome stranger in a mate-bond.
Lake is willing to do anything to protect the Wolf King, a man he also calls friend. So when he receives word that a Fae princess has slipped into Chicago, he suspects a plot to assassinate the Wolf King. He’s certain capturing her will be as easy as locating her—that was his first mistake. Not only is his wolf a little too interested in Skye, but the wolf accepts her mate-bond without any say-so from him. As he unravels the truth surrounding the smart-mouthed princess and whether she’s hunting his friend or being hunted by someone else, Lake’s mission changes: protect Skye at all costs. And keep her for himself. [Synopsis from Goodreads.com]
My Review: It's been a while since I read a good, cheesy shifter romance. And anyone that reads this blog should know how much I love cheese. When I was offered this book to review, I jumped at the chance. A half-fae, half-shifter princess and the gruff and tough werewolf thrown together? Sign me up! And I wasn't disappointed. Some parts of this were cheesy, for sure. But overall, this was an incredibly cute story. It can definitely be a one-sitting read, since this book is great for curling up under a warm blanket and enjoying an even warmer - or should I say hot? - shifter!
Skye can get a little annoying at times, I'll admit. She jumped to conclusions a lot. But really, the rest of the book made up for it. I enjoyed the story, I enjoyed Lake for sure, and I think this would be a great series to keep an eye on for fun future reads. Sure, this isn't the next chart-topping hit - but it is an enjoyable read, and will be worth looking into for anyone needing a good shifter romance.
Cover Lovin': Well it certainly caught my eye! Thumbs up.
Recommendation: While this is the second book in the series, it is not required to read the first book to understand what's going on.
Final Rating: THREE out of FIVE (3/5) stars! An enjoyable, fast-paced werewolf story. Worth a read!
