Force of Temptation
Harley Vincent is resigned to life in the human world. Sure, being a margay shifter is half her nature, but life among humans gives her the freedom to roam and do as she pleases. That is, until anti-shifter extremists target her, putting her life in immediate danger.
When an old acquaintance and onetime fling, Jesse Dalton, shows up to offer the protection of his pack, Harl...more
So, I am rating this super high.
Perhaps too high.
But homie don't care.
Because homie is one happy camping homie.
Is it be because I am hopelessly biased when it comes to this author?
Because I fucking just adore this series?
On all counts.
Seriously though, I just love Suzanne Wright.
I feel like we would be best friends if we ever met.
Or perhaps just stared at each other .
Or said completely inappropriate and inadvertently rude thin ...more
Force of Temptation the 2nd book in the Mercury Pack series was so damn good! The Mercury Pack series is the spin off series of The Phoenix Pack series. The stories and characters intertwine so much that I don't miss my favorite couples from the Phoenix Pack. I love Suzanne Wright. I have been a fan of hers for years. I've never read a book written by her that I haven't loved. I truly don't know how she does it. But somehow she ...more
Tell me who you belong to, Harley. Fucking tell me or I swear to God I’ll pull out and come all over you!”
With a resigned growl, she ground out, “I’m yours, you motherfucking, pushy bastard!”
“Never forget it.”
Oh wait...did you need more than that quote to convince you to read this book? Oh c'mon! *gives you a stink eye*
Sheesh. Fine. Demanding people.
Force of Temptation brings more of Suzanne Wright awesome. A sassy heroine, a badass possessive hero, the whole gang of awesome ...more
You know what my problem is with this author? The fact that I'm always left wanting more at the end of the book. Apparently a 300 something page book is not enough for me. No, I want to linger and enjoy her world-building for as long as I possibly can.
As usual Suzanne Wright sucked me in her book with the first few sentences. Introducing a new type of shifter that's also a person we haven't seen before in the series. Harley Vincent, a margay shifter! I love it when we get someone new a ...more
I absolutely love this author. Everything she writes turns to gold....for me anyway :)
So we have another book about the Mercury Pack and this time it's Jesse's turn. Now I'm gonna be honest here and say that I didn't remember much about Jesse. He has been a bit behind the scenes, but I was very impressed with his character in this book. He was very much the dominating possessive Alpha Wolf, but he was also really sweet and caring.
Harley, the female MC was also wonderful...I didn't hate one singl ...more

Full disclosure, I had no clue what a Margay was so I had to look up pictures. And now I want one! Christmas present maybe?
Harley Vincent is a half Margay shifter, half human who chooses to live in the human world. When she was younger her own pride was a bunch of partiers and was hated by the pack of wolf shifters that lived near them. But Harley was hated by that pack more than anyone and they made her childhood hell until her human ...more
"I'm asking you to forsake your true mate. I'm asking you to step back into a world that let you down. I'm asking you to give me every part of you. And I'm asking you to accept every part of me-a lot of those parts are dark and broken."
Force of Temptation is the second book in The Mercury Pack Series. It is another fantastic addition to the shifter shelf of goodness from the crazy talented Suzanne Wright. If strong alpha males and sassy heroines are your thing, then you will want to downloa ...more
Aaaaand...she did it again! Suzanne Wright is simply amazing at what she does. Her stories are so much fun to read (also re-read), just pure joy. There's a reason Suzanne is one of my favourite authors and this book proves once again why. The story has all the elements that I would like in my book, from the sexy scenes to the mystery and action. We also can't forget her completely alpha heroes that would do for their women abslutely everything. And n ...more
“I’m not a guy you can manage, Harley—you know it. Just like you know that neither you nor your cat would want me if you could control me.”
“Are you sure he can deal with you?” Harley smiled at the curvy feline. “No, but he’s delusional enough to believe he can.”
Have you ever wondered who would win a fight between a cat and a wolf…. Two dominant species set in their ways, one whose feisty and downright mean, and the other too st ...more
I REALLY wanted like this one more than I did. I've been struggling to finish it for a few days now. Unfortunately, it pretty much bored me to tears.
I liked both Jesse and Harley for the most part, but never really felt a connection between them, and I found Harley a little too alpha bitch at times. I also didn't love the fact that Jesse knew he wanted to mate her for three years and kept tabs on her etc, but continued to sleep around with OW. I am generally more picky about that type of thing ...more
This was the second book of the Mercury pack and another one wonderful story about Mrs. Wright's intriguing wolves...
We already known all these guys from both Mercury and Phoenix pack and we love them fiercely, so every new story is an awesome addition to this beautiful world full of shifters...
This story was a little bit different because it had to do with a wolf and a margay...
Strange combination, right??? But very irresistible and intriguing!!!
“I do ...more
Another winner from Suzanne Wright! I will read any character that she writes about in this shifter world. I love both the Mercury and Phoenix packs and am not ashamed to admit that I can never get enough of them!
As you've come to expect, you'll get a possessive Alpha male and a snarky and strong leading lady. Jesse and Harley did not disappoint. I loved them both.
I was worried that since Harley wasn't Jesse's true mate, I'd feel a bit jipped, but Suzanne Wright did a great job ...more
Yes that quote is from Misery. One thing I like about these books is that they each have a funny little theme running through them, even through the series, like Dominic’s sleazy pick up lines, or the prank wars between Eli and Roni.
This book has a little three year old girl running around quoting horror movies. Every time she does it her Mom says, “Who let her watch Misery” or whatever movie she quoted. Quite funny.
The story is as good as all the rest. I plan to cont ...more
After reading the synopsis I wondered if Suzanne Wright would be able to sell me on the rightness, and intensity of Harley and Jesse’s romance, just as much as the other true mate couples featured previously. I shouldn’t have worried, because their connection was every bit as powerful and electric as a true mated pair!
True mates are shifters who are destined to be together, perfect for each other, the other half of a one’s soul. But as the description says, Jesse lost his true mate whe ...more
In case you forgot about who's in Mercury Pack, read the previous book. Like me... who is Jesse Dalton? Yeah, this pack has whole bunch of were-creatures is easily to forget because they have hugeee crowd. I only remember the main member of Phoenix Pact, their ally. Sadly, I didn't remember this Jesse but I liked the story very much!
Being a margay shifter, Harley Vincent lives among the human like nothing happened. But she has been targeted by the Extremist for a long t ...more
I love a man who knows what he wants, and just tells you. Crazy or not! From the start he knows that Harley will be his. I mean, he had groceries for her at the house for when he was ready to bring her home. Luckily, someone tried to blow up her car, so he didn't have to wait another week. Now he just has to si ...more
I expected so much more from this series and this author.
This book was pretty boring, to be honest, and the characters didn't really have chemistry.
It wasn't an awful read by any means, it was just pretty meh . ...more
I don't know if I was imagining things or it's because I want more of Cain, but didn't he seem a little protective of Cassidy? Is she his true mate? I mean, when she's older, of course. She's just a kid now. But still.. Or maybe he'll just be there for Cassidy like he was for Ally growing up?? SOMETHING. I just have a feeling. Am I the only one who noticed it? The connection? He refused to give her to Shay ...more
This worked and I have no complaints. Decent shifter book. A continuation of the previous book. It's a formula that works well as long as you don't read them back to back. If you do, you'll get bored.

I really enjoyed this story. Jesse was a sexy, silent, brooding alpha male who never wavered in his feelings. And Harley was strong, understanding, and feisty. Together they were absolutely perfect and I loved reading about them as a couple.
Jesse is a wolf shifter & Harley is a margay cat shifter. So the whole time I was picturing something like this...
Now Jesse & Harley are not 'true' mates, his (view spoiler)[mate died when they were children (hide spoiler)]. But despite this he never ...more
This book is a breath of fresh air. I love Suzanne Wright and the world that she has created. Each and every single book and if you haven’t read anything by her then I would go to your computer and one click her books right now.
So you’re wondering how is this can be a breath of fresh air.
Our heroine Harley Vincent is a margay wild cat not a wolf. This alone makes it different than the other books. She has a lot of feline characteristics which made this book unique.
As a half ...more

I loved the fact Harley paid no attention to other peoples BS and her truly forgetting about people that didn't mater to her and the annoyance it caused them made me smirk.
Having the kids in so many scenes in this book was fab.
I also enjoyed the fact that it never felt like Harley was second best for Jesse. ...more
The reason this book wasn't a five star as there were several plot holes that could have easily been fixed with good beta reading or content editor.
Outside of that, I'm seriously hoping for a story on Kane/Cain. I listened and don't know how she spelled it.
The narrator was good only she has two settings fo ...more
I may have to quit these for a while as they're starting to blend a bit. ...more
