Gwen Miller may be a human, but she has no problem taking a stand against her own kind. She’s going to testify against the teenage boy she saw viciously assault a lone shifter female—and no amount of pressure from the boy’s wealthy family will make her back down. But when the harassment turns violent, help comes in the form of a lean, toned wolf with winter-gray eyes.
As a guest at Gwen’s inn, shifter enforcer Zander Devlin can’t help but notice that the fierce and leggy brunette is in serious trouble. Since she’s putting herself at risk for one of his kind, keeping her safe is the least he can do. That’s not the only reason Zander wants her close. He desires her, even as the wolf inside him backs away from her. But his feral instincts are hard to keep down, and as they take shape, they’re harder for Gwen to resist. Then again, embracing them could be the only thing that could save her life.

You guys know I’m a big fan of Suzanne Wright and all her previous books that I’ve read were really good. Especially the Dark in You series. I truly love those. So when I started reading this book I had quite high hopes for it. Now, I wouldn’t say it’s a bad story but I also wouldn’t say it blew me away. It’s kinda in the middle. At times I felt bored but then again, there were moments where I really got into the story and the characters. I adored Gwen, she so to say saved this story for me. Zander was all right but I didn’t feel the connection to him, at least not as much as I did to Gwen. Also, about his wolf, I’m not sure how I feel about him. At first I was confused and a bit weirded out but by the end, I don’t know. The change happened a bit fast for me. The secondary characters were also great and I liked seeing the characters from previous books make an appearance in this book. I even liked the ‘bad guys’, they were sorta pathetic but also funny and at times they even made my blood boil, so that’s a good way to make the villain.
So all in all, it’s a good story but not the best I’ve read by this author. That being said, I’ll definitely read more of her work.
