I just finished reading this Cherise Sinclair book, you know how I love a Cherise Sinclair read, and couldn’t wait to tell you about it. Anyway, this one is part of her shifter menage series. I read the first one in the series (Hour of the Lion) a few years ago and always meant to get around to buying/reading this one, and I finally did. I don’t know why I waited so long!
This one is about Bree-I don’t know that I’ve ever met a more tortured heroine. Bree was found at the age of 3, abandoned in the woods with only a picture of her parents and a unique bracelet. She grew up in a series of foster homes, finally running away. She has settled into a comfortable home life sharing an apartment with her foster-sister Ashley. But one night a hellhound brutally attacks them, killing Ashley and raping Bree. And completely ruining the life that Bree worked so hard to build. Bree flees to recover and decides that she may as well use that time to see if she can track down her parents’ identities as well.
Shay and Zeb fight hellhounds as a team and have complex backgrounds as well. I’d go into more detail, but I think the main point is that they move together from place to place a lot. But Shay, Zeb, and Bree all end up in Cold Creek at the same time. And despite being terrified of anything large and male, Bree finds herself drawn to them and feeling safe and protected when they are around.
I will say that this one was a little predictable for me. There were multiple points in the storylines that I had called ahead of time. But somehow that didn’t detract from the story at all. Between the wolf pack politics (I’ve mentioned that Shay and Zeb are werewolves, right? No, well I did now), more hellhound attacks, and Bree’s discoveries, I’m surprised that there was room for a romance in this book. But there was! There was such a romance in here. *contented sigh*
A definitely must-read for fans of the first book (Hour of the Lion), but it’s easy to read as a stand alone as well. Flowing between hot and intense and sweet and gentle, this one should satisfy any menage shifter fan’s reading requirements.
