An Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) of this book was received free via Netgalley for an honest review.
I have enjoyed the slow evolution of the Cascadia Wolves series. The writing has gotten better; the storyline has gotten stronger; the characters have been better drawn.
This is especially true of Cade in this book. While there is still a bit too much tell and not enough show, Cade's need to find a mate came through loud and clear. I ...more

1. The first meeting between Cade and Grace and them getting together was too quick, felt a bit rushed.I have loved Cade since first meeting him and it would of been nice to see him fighting a bit more for Grace.
Grace was almost perfect except for the breast thing!. Why LD did not just give her big boobs I don't know!!!!!
2. The big fight between Cade and Warren. Warren was this uber baddie but he wa ...more
***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!
The cover and name changed in its makeover though I’m not sure if any of the content changed because this is my first time reading it!
I messed up the count on my last review because I was counting Reluctant Mate in the books, but it is a prequel. This is the 4th book in the series, ...more

For awhile my perverse side was kinda hoping that there was more to Nina and Cade than just an anchor bond. Yes, yes I know I'm a perv but still I really thought they had a little somein somein.
Still.. I'm very glad now that that is not the case.
I do try to keep my reviews spoiler free so if this doesn't make a lot of sense I do apologise.
Grace surprised the shit outta me throughout this story. She started like this timid li ...more
Un po' noioso anche se non vedevo l'ora di leggere la storia di Cade. Finita la guerra i lupi di Cascadia non sono piú tanto interessanti secondo me, ma Lauren Dane resta una scrittrice di quelle che valgono la pena.
THANKS TO NETGALLEY FOR THE PREVIEW!
I enjoyed the continued progression of the overall story arc and the development of the relationship. I was glad to see Grace put Nina in her place. As the series has progressed, I've found myself liking Nina less and less. Her overall attitude has seemed to get worse, and her actions toward Grace were completely out of line.
I love that Case respected Grace and pushed her to be herself, as well as a part of him. And come on, how cute is it that he bakes when h ...more

I was up at 1210am when the book downloaded and read until about 530am..now I have finished it and it's both good and bad. Good because I loved the book and was so happy that Cade finally found his mate..sad, because I've finished the book and now I'm dying for a book for Megan, Dave, and Jack.
