Kensington - June 20, 2013
E-pub only - 103 pages
In human form, Terrent Vilks is all male animal—dark, ripped, predatory. As wolf, he’s unforgettably dangerous, unforgettably hot. Yet Maggie can’t remember him….
Not even when she learns she once agreed to mate him. Yeah, that was years ago, before she was kidnapped and tortured, before she lost her memory. Now she knows just one thing about herself—she’ll do whatever it takes to bring down the monsters who took her, even trust her ex.
He’s got her right where he wants her… Kensington
This short book is filled with really hot scenes and humor as well as lots of action. It is also the sixth in the series and I felt the lack of backstory in understanding what was going on, so I don't think it is great as a standalone. I really didn't get the plot -- it seemed to tie up a lot of story lines. It feels a little "pat," overly convenient. I really didn't get who all the different factions were and why they were fighting.
Zanetti writes great love scenes though: "Is it hot in here?" love scenes! Terrent seethes with passion and Maggie is drawn to him in a very palpable way.
I loved humorous antics of the cheerleader shifters who kick it up a notch into fight mode when needed and are very naughty in their own way. Maybe they aren't supposed to be amusing but they really are -- like Barbie Dolls playing Charlie's Angels.
It is a quickie, but even failing the back story I always enjoy Zanetti and think this is a perfect way to turn up the heat a notch this chilly summer.
