A pack Alpha and his estranged, true mate wrestle with painful secrets, ruthless enemies, and their own irresistible attraction, in the sexy third book of the Phoenix Pack series.

Half-shifter Shaya Critchley may hold a submissive role in her pack, but she’s done taking orders. After her Alpha wolf mate refused to claim her—but committed to interfering in her life—she took off. Now she hides from him, posing as a human in a town full of anti-shifter extremist groups. She thinks he’ll never find her again, and that suits her just fine. But she’s wrong.

Nick Axton can barely control his feelings for Shaya, but he could never claim her—not if he truly cares for her. The degenerative brain condition he keeps secret would ultimately leave her with a burden rather than a mate. But when Shaya runs away, Nick can’t bear the thought of never seeing her again. After tracking her down, he discovers Shaya’s feisty and passionate side in the process…a side he’d never seen before.

Under the menacing gazes of territorial local packs and violent human extremists, Nick vows to finally claim the spirited Shaya…and despite her initial resistance, Shaya just might find his fiery determination to be the ultimate aphrodisiac.

Mike’s Review

(4 / 5)

My feelings on this book are a bit split. One one side there were plenty of interesting twists and turns in the story that I wasn’t expecting, and yet on the other some parts were formulaic. And of course, if you’re a fan of this series you know things are going to get hot and steamy, but less of it than in the previous books it feels like (I could be wrong, but it just feels that way) which was ok because it lead to…

My favorite part of this book!

Oddly enough it wasn’t something specific that I enjoyed about this book, but rather just the fact that we get a grander look at the world building that’s subtly going on in the background. Some peeks at the political state of things in regards to shifters and the legal system, the ugly side of shifter racism, and the fact that shifters are common knowledge to ‘regular’ humans puts an interesting spin on things that you (or I) didn’t get from the other previous books.

My final thought on things though – I’m pretty sure that if Dr. Phill set up shop in the shifter community he’d make a killing amongst all the tragic backgrounds and psychological issues that these poor wolves have!
