I was excited that Max got his own book. Wish it was full length, but I will take what ever I can get with these sexy heroes, Rebecca has created. I have been curious about Max since the beginning of this series when he started being Janie’s bodyguard.
Loved how we got to see his past and how he became Janie’s bodyguard. He is so sweet to Janie in Fated #1 and Claimed #2, but it was a treat to see him with her for the very first meeting in the beginning of Tempted. It is amazing how this huge vampire soldier is a fighting machine and can kill without thinking twice about it, then he is so sweet and gentle with Janie. I felt so bad for him for having a drunken father and was so happy that it was Dage who saved him and brought him into his family. I love their relationship as if they were brothers. Dage does not treat him any different then he would his own family. In Dage’s eyes Max is his family.
Max is a concerned alpha male hero. He is not one with a lot of patience when it comes to his family and his mate."I will not hurt you. Now take off the damn underwear and warm the hell up.”
He has always been a badass soldier and never new how to love and be sweet to others till he started being Janie’s bodyguard. He has his moments when he can be so sweet to Sarah.“You don’t seem like a snuggler.”
(Sarah)“Ah sweetheart. I’ve been known to snuggle, cuddle, wipe away crocodile tears, and even buy Band-Aids decorated with ponies. I’m harmless.”
He was born and raised in Russia until Dage Rescued him and brought him the United States. He is always calling her Milaya. It means pretty one in Russia. I adore it when he would call her this. Loved seeing the gentle side in him when he was around Sarah.
Max like all of Rebecca’s heroes are very protective of their mate’s and do not do well when their mates put them selves in danger.“I’m fine with dating. With courting. What I’m not fine with, what you’ll never do again, is put yourself in the path of a bullet. Ever.” His gaze locked hard with hers. “I’m an easygoing guy sweetheart. But I have a line, and you found it. Don’t cross it again.”
I loved the talk Max and Conn have and the advice Conn gives him about Max’s mate. Was excited to see a little bit of Conn and him getting ready for his story.
Do not let this short novella scare you away because of the length. Rebecca does a great job with fitting all you need to know about max and more in it. You really do not need to read this before Hunted #3 but it is a bonus to get all the goods on Max. I highly recommend this series for all Paranormal fans.
