My bones still hold the gouges of rejection.

It still hurts, watching Clayton love the one he rejected me for, and it probably always will. My body still yearns for my destined mate, the Moon refusing to set us free from the bond that stems from the marrow of our existence.

Anguish and heartache with unbearable pain is the life I thought I was destined to live.

Digs into the readers heart and won’t let go.

It kills me not to give this story 5 stars because I loved it so much but I cannot ignore one disappointing part, which I explain at the end of this review.

Dallas is book two of Rya’s story, told from her perspective with a few chapters told from Dallas’s perspective. Generally, I feel like an author ought to stick with one perspective because that’s how life happens, how each of us experience life, including events that effected us outside of our pr

This story wasn't at all as angsty as Clayton's story was, but that didn't mean this story doesn't have its own sadnesses. I loved this sequel every bit as much as the first story. This author has an amazing talent for spinning a tale that's so realistic and believable, with characters the reader can't help but fall in love with. I adored everything aboyt Rya's journey to finally finding her happiness, as well as all the family she collected along the way. This was the perfect ending to this bea

Own in: The Wildflower Series

So excited these books are available for my kindle. I like the way it ended. However, I did soften toward Clayton a little. I can't believe I said that. I came to feel sorry for Kennedy, but I will never like her. Both, raised in the culture, should have respected the mating bond. I also blame Kennedy's and Clayton's parents. All 6 people caused their own and others suffering. None deserve a happy ending - and in these 2 books, none of them do.

I am so glad

2 ⭐⭐ - Meh!

The story continues ... the suffering continues and the drama increases.

”Why me? All I ever wanted in life was to be loved, to be put first. Is that too much to ask for? . . . I deserve to be first . . . I would rather be alone than know that I’m just being used for company. To fill a void left by your dead mate . . . I’m worthy to be someone’s first.”

Rya’s inner turmoil resonated with me. I’ve been this girl, feeling like I was a man’s consolation prize. It hurts to believe someone is just passing time with you until he gets a better offer or because he couldn

"Dallas" continues the amazing journey of so many great characters and expands our knowledge of the world of the Wildflower Series. We meet new characters and the namesake of the series.

I personally enjoyed Rya's journey and character growth, and seeing more of the Valentine family, I can never get enough, especially Caleb 😍. Can't wait for the other books in the series and beta series to come out!! I HIGHLY recommend picking up "His Alpha" after reading "Dallas" it's available on Amazon.

I love

Stupid ending. Bad grammar. Unoriginal storyline. Weak main character, that tries to get with someone who is already married in a sense and one that had already rejected her,then that doesn't work and she 'needs' a man so she gets the next best thing. Ha, fuck that. Then second best man, towards the end, tells her I can't commit to you fully as I had a mate before and I want to be with her there in the moon. You are just good for now and are just filling a gap. Ha

Waste of time and money. Should
2.5 Stars!

It was great at first with enough angst to stir excitement in me but around 60- 70ish I started to get bored. Bored with unnecessary characters (in my opinion). I believe they will the be the main character of the next book in this series but having continuously reading about them just bores me to death. I have to skim a good portion just to be done with it.

The moment the story picked up a bit was when the magic "question" was asked.

Also, I noticed that the "saturate" word were used

There is no words to explain how amazing this book turned out. This story stays very close to my heart and has me crying, no matter how many times I read it. Rachelle is a phenomenal writer and she never disappoints. I love watching Rya bloom, like a true wildflower. Belac and Treajure are amazing characters, I see a bit of myself in those Wildflowers.

I enjoyed this just wasn’t as good as the first, I also don’t think Dallas deserved her by the end either. I didn’t like the way she backed down to him, or gave into his ideas and theories, didn’t fit with her character or what Ray had suffered

Very different wolf shifter story

This was different than any other wolf shifter book that I’ve read yet it was interesting. I liked it but I didn’t love it. It was a strange story. The characters were weird. First of all I’ve never read a shifter book where the true mates had a choice in not choosing their mates yet Clayton did. Rya is strong in the face of all that has been done to her but she does not gloat or find pleasure in the pain of her tormentors. She is strong and compassionate when sh

Quick rundown: female wolf rejected by her true mate, finds love with another wolf, while struggling to fight the pull of the true mate bond.

I go back and forth with this duet. I felt SO bad for Rya as she struggled with her mates rejection of her. Part of me felt like she was a weak main character, but the author did a good job of stressing how strong of a pull the mate bond has on you, so it helped me to understand why it was so hard for her to walk away from her mate even after everything he

Again with the intense feelings tho? The three stars js 100% because the issues with the writing that pulled through book one happened again here. However I didn’t worry a bit about that because the angst!! The pain!!! The drama!!!!! So much ever rolling and conflicting feelings. This was an amazing duology (I know there’s a book three but that’s it’s won independent story about Cash and not these two.)

Different pace, angst rather than dark, with poor choices leading to misunderstandings. The h's history gets in the way of her bonding to her lover, and she takes off. It was actually a good thing to do, everyone believed in her but she had to learn to believe in herself. Although the book is titled for the H, this is really the h's story of becoming the strong wolf she would have been with her true mate. In the end she got there on her own. Loved it, but not as bloody or as gritty as book 1.

True happiness

Finally Rae will get her happiness. However she goes through her training. It was interesting seeing her train as wolf and then skin.

Better yet she went through some turmoil and goes on her own journey. She at least has found a pack that loves her with open arms.

First book was better though.

Interesting take on the rejected mate trope. Unevenly paced - some parts feel like a synopsis rather than a novel. Tons of telling rather than showing. But a rich story that kept me turning pages. Unfortunately, desperately in need of a good edit.

This book reminds me why I fell in love with this genre so many years ago...

This rarely happens, but I feel Book two somehow managed to surpass book one in epic awesomeness. For realz. This series has brought me back to paranormal romance, I feel like I just need more, so much more of this in my life. I took a break from shifter books because everything was just getting too predictable and the books weren’t bringing enough unique elements my way.

My favorite parts of Rya and Dallas love story

The first book set the background of the story of two broken souls, this books gives us the melody.


Rya’s true mate Clayton loved his childhood sweetheart Kennedy and chose her as his mate. Leaving Rya broken in body and spirit in book 1. Rya grows and learns to be a midwife. She is called back to the pack who needs her skills. There she must face her true mate with his choice of mate. Rya is a shell of her former self but she turns a p

Book 1 in the Wildflower series held my interest enough that I wanted to read this book 2 to see where it would take the characters Rya, Clayton, Kennedy, and Dallas, as well as Dallas’ brothers. This is another likable story, but, once again, I went through the book wondering why the title was Dallas. I think the titles of books 1 and 2 should have been reversed. In any event, there are lots of story-lines going on in this book, and lots of good and bad situations, some that really will break y ...more

oooo I liked this book more than Clayton.

I loved the new pack and the dynamics it brings in Rya's life. I love the growth that we see in Dallas and Rya.

The only thing that started to annoy me was the constant back and forth on the mating bond and moon blessed. Perhaps it's because of Im usually, once I decide it is done and over with, but I just wanted to yell to Dallas and Rya. They both had moments of being idiots. However, look at their history. It makes sense up to a certain point.

This book is the ending of Rya's story and what a story it is. I really like how the author developed Rya and it's easy to understand why she feels so bad about herself but also the reason others love her. Rya looks within to start to heal herself and her healing starts by fixing her broken connections, she looks both inwards and outwards in order to heal but also knows she cannot turn to the ones who hurt. This is book is about connection, healing and forgiveness and the author does an amazing ...more
