The world around the story's not enough developped to help the reader. The sex scenes were hot as always however and Aden and Darren burn the pages together. Not a bad book, just simplified. (less)

What I like: -The evolution, the construction of the relation between Aden and Darren -The description of the different battles. -The sex, yes, it's was a little too much, but well write, hot and the BDSM aspect was realist and even when Aden bottomed he remained Dom. -August seems a strong woman, sadly we didn't see her a lot.
What I didn't like: -The final battle was disappointing. Olivier died easily, it's was not impressive. -The completly lack of background (already mentionned in the prequel). No family, no friend, we know nothing of the history of the Werewolf, of Argenti. (ex: Severial time it's mentionned that Aden's old and powerful. Gail, a wolf of Aden's pack, is +/-60 years and Darren said that she's old. How old is Aden? Did Were age at the same speed than human? That's not clear) A lot of questions remains without answer.

I love the idea of a pride of lion and their human pet, especially since everything's consensual. The ignorance visible of the lions about the human make it that there's a lot of material here to play with the prejudice of both sides. I love how to dominance's played here. But I don't like Ryland. No. I found him pathetic, he don't have a backbone, a real personality, he's just like a carpet. (less)

I'm tired of writer that try to amend some asshole 'because they had good reasons'. And someone's really have to work again on the edition. I learned English by myself and this book have so much faults that's bother me, imagine a native... This book is a total deception. (less)

I've never had any problems with Total-E-Bound before, so I prefer to think that I receided an unedited book by error than to think that they did this kind of bad work on the book. The numbers of faults that I found...and I'm not even native in English. Grammatical mistakes, lost word, contiguous words (ex: 'Jordansat' instead of 'Jordan sat') personage that change of name (Azrael Lowell, p.12/135 Azrael DeLuna, p.23/135, Azrael Bannon p.116/135), the number of people in one scene that changed sudenly.
Ok, something bother me. When the pack expulsed Mika in the first book, it's because he is gay. Now, in this one, Aidan said that his brother and him try to change thing for gay (and everyone). So what, they were never a soul-mate gay couple before? That's a modern thing? I can understand being gay and not out in your pack, even if you're in love with someone (not being your soul-mate) if they're going to react badly. But what happened to the true mate?
Mika and Gare are interesting but it's was not their book. Why pass all this time on them?
Too much sex. That's make me sad because I really enjoy reading about Aidan/Zane when they didn't have sex. Zane problems's were interesting to read about. He is much more complex than he appeared at first. (less)

Than that's continue with the cliche description of the protagonists.
And next: Carson said that they had sex 6 times the night before, when one of them declare the morning after 'it's why you didn't come last night?' My reaction was....WTF? and you didn't do anything about that the night before, you just continue you used him as a hot hole??????? And now, that morning, you continue to have sex witn him even knowing that the reason you're here it's because of the already mentioned abuse......Wow, talk about someone who give a shit about others.
Ok, It's a flamme, in the form that I want to burn the book. I tend to try to find something positive to say about a book when I don't like it because I know that the writer work on it. In this case I fell no pity. This is not the work of a writer, of someone who have a passion for telling a story, for her personages. That's the work of someone that write to sell. Well, it's seems to work since I buy (yeah, I didn't stole, I paid for that thing, see, I'm a good girl) her books. That was the last time. I'm not even sure I want to read the other that wait on my KINDLE (I hope she received something for that one)
EDIT: OMG! I try to read a little more and it's 'jump the shark' in the most beautiful way with this tentative of suicide. Wow, just wow! (less)

Don't buy it one second. That's ridiculous. That's taking the reader to an idiot. In the case of a woman and vaginal sex, she must be a little lubricated, if not it's can hurt, so if you just change Keeley for a woman (really easy thing to do since he is already a woman-with-cock cliche)...how Reece just plunge his cock inside him (her for my example) CAN bless him. As if he didn't know how to do it properly. It's burn and it's can bleed. Not an intelligent move.
And maybe I'm lucky, but I'd never new a guy that didn't have a bottle of lub or some K-Y and I knew a lot of guy (not necessary a good think, but, oh well!)
And when Keeley explained that they're a place inside Reece ass that's call the sweet spot...WTF??? Don't try to make me believe that the guy don't know about his prostate. Maybe he never play with it, that's ok, but that he don't know about it?...No, no, no! Seriously, they are limits to take the reader to an...idiot (ho I have to repeat myself lol)
And the whole 'falling in love' after two round of sex??? That's reacting like a naive teenager. Add to that that the guy said that after Reece treat him like a piece of shit. Did he suffered of some battered woman complex???
"Okay, okay. Have you tried just talking to the guy? Asking him what he wants? Maybe he likes flowers and jewelry and stuff like that. Maybe he’d like to be romanced, cuddled and kissed.Some men do, you know, and it doesn’t mean that they are any less of a man. We all need to feel wanted, Reece, even men." Yeah, the key word he is SOME, but the majorities do not love to be romanced or nothing of that sort. But, hey, Keeley's not really a man so he doesn't count.
This writer seems to like writing 'womanized' bottom. In the first book, the guy love to be the housewife and in this book, the guy's a wannabe femme. Don't read me wrong, I'm all for differences...when it's well wrote and seems natural, not only there to make the personage week and feminine.
And please, can Keeley just stop crying one minute...?
Good point for Reece...he want to try and be versatile. Not that you have to be, but the fact that he WANT it make him a little more sympathetic.
Why Reece is the new Alpha? I understood that he challenged the last Alpha because he beat a human, but where he is from? He do not know the persons in this pack. apart the Morgan's brothers...
'Keeley and Nate both giggled.' Ok.....so the two bottom giggle??? Another proof that they are not really considerate like a man.
And when Keeley take Nate by the hand and go in his room to share confidences???????? O.o Ho....another thing normally associated with female teenager.
And even if the old Alpha was part of the plan, plus some families, not all of the pack members were on it...How can 270 members can disappear without someone said something before.....Please, in a close community, fives members disappears and it's a drama. I just can't see them never thalk about it between themselves or trying to ask for the help of others packs, as Joe and his father did when ONE members (a human) was in danger in the previous book. 270 members that were supposedly not accepted....the percentage's that's make's astronomical. And before the old Alpha time, this ritual of 'acceptation' was not practiced, as I understood...the older members of the pack didn't said anything when the disappearance started? The parents just accepted it, never question the fact that they never received new of their child??? How much years did that need to make all of this people disappears??? They don't have legal existences??? Try to stop declaring incomes and paying taxes ans see if the governments don't search for you a little. More if it's all in the same region.
Too much cliche, too much incoherence. Lack of everything but sex. Didn't like it. (less)

Not really coherent with what you expected of a Alpha, but it's go with the genre of the book.
Don't like the used of 'Bitch'.
Is Asher gay or it's a gay-for-you story?
Asher Grayson looked over at the man casually leaning against the desk in his study and scowled. page.19
And now sudenly his name is: “Ash! Asher Stone, don’t you dare walk away from me.” page.72
“What’s he doing?” Darren whispered back. They talk in their mind....how can he whispered?
One of the good point of this writer, even if she write cliche personage it's that she try to make them switch or at least, they try to be. Not that it's an obligation but the percentage of switch in real life and in LGBT book's not equaly represented.
A lot of small plot ideas, sentences, etc are used and reused in his book. It's redundant.

And no I don't talk about Joel (and why not used his name? That's sound a little racist.) A fews plot hole...Nothing major. Better than the first one. I love that all three men are not weak, but each had his force, they make an interesting team. Problems with the edition.
...because it was whispered in his mind through their telepathic link.
NO. Whispered it's the action of talking softly, without your full voice. I don't see how you can do that while you using a mind link...

Yeah, I know, totally not the type of perso I like normally, but I love him, nah! 1 stars for Logan! I found him extremely condescending to Love. It's insulting how he just judge Love immediately. Everyone who disagree with him, who demand affection and yeah, some time is considered high maintenance...WTF?
Seriously, you named your two MC, Logan Stone and Love Star???
Ok, I wrote the above sentence at the beginning of my lecture of the book. I don't change my opinion of Logan now that I finish the book. He is an ASS.
At the end of the first book, Darren was supposed to be bitten and transformed. In this book...he is human, the fact that Love's a half-wolf seems a problem and the book do not mention the possibility of being bitten and transformed.
In the first book...Darren was the Alpha's bitch now it Alpha-mate (or Beta-mate in the case of Love)...
I can't say if it's the writer fault or the publisher (more the editing team) but in each books and series by this writer and publisher, the problem of the plot constancies always there. I think that it's a problem with the publisher since it's the same thing with different writer. I annoying. It's not difficult to take some notes about your personages, your plot ideas, make a calender...

Completely unrealistic reaction of Dobry part about the consequence of the rape. He is traumatized after being captured and abused for six weeks but only a few hours after being liberated he have sex with his mates. I'm tired that this writer use this trick each time one of her perso was raped. Good sex don't heal a victim. Therapy do that.
The exact same plot was used in the first book of this series, when the Alpha said that he had Matt and Dobry captured and it's a lie. The alpha in the other book did said that he had captured Zac and it's was a lie too.

Like that being wolf, Alpha and gay don't seems to be a problem.
Dislike the overuse of 'his Master' and 'his pup'. Dislike Bennet and his emo personality. Dislike that as usual the writer didn't bother to explain the world they live in or even bother to make it realist. You just have the two MC relation and that's that. Work, family name, age, education, where, why a pack lead by two men, friends...these question are never answered in this book. That's make the book hollow, not rich and interesting. A good relation is not enough for me to find the book 'Wow', I need more. (less)
