Wildest is the second book in Carrie Thorne’s Demon Hunter Romance Series. This book is an action packed paranormal romance novel filled with great characters, intense passion, a great love story and a happily ever after.

While on a mission Astrid Edmonds is shocked to discover that everything she knew about werewolves was wrong. There are good werewolves out there like Boden Connery and he needs her and her team’s help to fight off a pack of feral wolves and protect the Montana pack. The chemis

I have been waiting for this book to come out ever since I read the snippet in Six. Wildest is a captivating paranormal romance between Astrid Peterson and Bodie Connery. Astrid is a strong, smart, attractive demon hunter, who is a badass and can fight like a ninja. Bodie is an Alpha werewolf who is handsome, loyal, and passionate.

This book can be read as a standalone, but I suggest reading Six first so you can understand Wildest a little better. There isn’t a lot of overlap so Six might help ex
Wildest follows Astrid, part of the Demon Hunter team and Bodie the soon-to-be alpha of a Werewolf pack. The two try to douse the fire between them all while dealing with a rabid army of ferals. There is snark, there is mischief, there is passion and there is a good plot with fast paced action.

This paranormal romance was so wholesome, it was difficult to put this book down. The world building along with the lore was so powerful and so well thought out. The main characters were beautifully portra

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

Demon hunters, werewolf's, wolf shifters, and as she calls them, Ferals all completely had me interested from the first few chapters. As a paranormal fan, I loved that author distinguished between the wild Ferals and the werewolf man who controlled his wild side. The author did a fantastic job providing references to separate them in the readers' minds, even explaining how a wolf shifter can become Feral. Minor

Holy crap I haven't reviewed Wildest yet! Well, I have. In my head, over and over and over. And I still love it. Like watching a favorite movie. On repeat. Yes, I do that, shh!! Of course, I have author bias.

Admittedly, I'm more than a little in love with Bodie. The best thing about paranormal as a genre, is that there are no rules. But sometimes, the scientist in me can't make it too far-fetched, apparently, as not matter what world the story exists in, the characterization is paramount, the a

Book 2 was a more enjoyable read for me. It had a more fluid writing style and did not jump around like the first book did. In this story, you follow Astrid and Boden "Bodie" as the come together and have to overcome centuries of mistrust and downright hatred between the werewolves and demon hunters. Neither group had seen anything but the worst of each group.

The idea/concept of this book is that the demon hu

Not your usual enemies to lovers couples romance. This time the couple is a Demon Hunter and a Montana Werewolf. They have to put aside their prejudices and join forces to fight feral werewolves who are killing people. Astrid Edmond is the demon Hunter who thinks werewolves are filthy, smelly savages and should be eliminated from this Earth until she meets Boden Connery. A very handsome, sexy, muscular werewolf.

This is the sequel to Six and we get to meet Carrie and Shayne again, along with the rest of the demon hunting team. Astrid is tasked with the job of answering a call for help to deal with feral werewolves that have been attacking a remote community, assessing if the call is genuine and, if so , what can they do to help? On the way she runs into three werewolves who aren’t like any others she’d previously fought. They fought together as a team and even seemed to strategise. While fighting them, ...more

This is the first book I've read from this author and I was greatly pleased! Ms. Thorne took me on an adventure full of demons, werewolves, ferals, and hunters. I loved the H and h's instant attraction and chemistry. The dialogues are witty and refreshing. Characters are well fleshed out and the description of the battle makes you feel like you're in the thick of it. Bodie (H) was a reluctant alpha who has always been there for his pack and feels the great responsibility of protecting it. Astrid ...more
The second book in this series is interesting in the way that it builds up the characters and the sceneries. They are very detailed to the point where they can be pictured. Although the storyline is good, I personally prefer the first book.

Astrid has her own ideas about werewolves until she meets Bodie. He is entirely different to what she had imagined. The sparks fly between them, but acting upon their attraction is a different story. They are from different worlds after all. A werewolf who lik

What I liked about this book were the characters and the story line. This book has a different slant on werewolves. Here the werewolves are half demon and half human. There are normal werewolves and there are feral werewolves. The normal werewolves live under the radar. Then there are the feral ones who are the ones who attack and kill people. Werewolves turn feral because they can't control their anger and morph into the half and half beasts. There are also Demon Hunters who are half demon and ...more

Carrie Thorne is another new-to-me author who has impressed me greatly with the book Wildest. I love a good paranormal romance and I'm grateful to add another 'reliable' author to my list.
The storyline was exciting and well-paced and was full of action, romance and strong secondary characters. One of the most enjoyable parts of this book was the two well developed MCs. Astrid comes across as a standoffish princess who is also highly intelligent, confident in her skills and a kickass fighter. Bo

OK, I'm hooked. I enjoyed the first in this series - the characters, the humour, the action... But fell in love with the second. Bodie and Astrid! What can I say - I loved their banter, the connection and the love and respect that grew between them so quickly. These stories are built around tolerance and understanding - the growth to accept others because of difference not despite them. Of course they've also got all the hot alpha men and bad-ass females that complement each other. The plot deve ...more

I loved Six, so I was over the moon when I saw there was another book. It was a while after reading Six before I started Wildest. I forgot the characters for a little while, so I was slightly confused at the beginning trying to figure out who Astrid was. My issue not the story. This one can be read as a stand alone. Just have much more back story by reading Six first.

I was hooked on the story once Astrid met Bodie. I love how both characters need to overcome what they thought they knew to be abl

Considering this is about demons etc this was so much fun to read.

This author brought a whole new side to the werewolf side of things especially the feral side.

This crew really works well together and I really hope there will be another book to follow in this line as I am finding it totally interesting.

I would really love to read about another one of the the crew meeting their match and this author has a way with making them come out of nowhere and just stick.

Although second in the series this book is good as a standalone. Astrid and Bodie both have a lot of erroneous misconceptions about each other. Astrid is a demon hunter who thinks werewolves are smelly and violent beasts. Bodie is a werewolf who thinks demon hunters are vicious killers. She doesn’t like that she finds him attractive in addition to her poor social skills making things confusing for him. Both are wonderful characters and the story has a different take on werewolves.

Astrid was picked to do reconnisance for the demon hunting group. Supposedly a group of werewolves were threatening a compound. At the meeting site, she finds several werewolves that threaten her, which she kills. Another one comes at her and surprisingly another werewolf helps her out. To her knowledge, werewolves don’t help humans, but this one looked and smelled different. When he changes to his human form, he introduces himself as Brodie. He is her contact.

Really enjoyed this book. Wildest is the second book in the Demon Hunter series by Carrie Thorne. It can be read as a standalone, but better read after the first book. We met Astrid in book one and she always came across as pretty reserved. It was learn her back story as to why she's like that, but better to see that she could learn to relax. Easy going Brodie seemed like her perfect compliment and their banter had me frequently laughing out loud. Wildest is a slow burn with tons of chemistry be ...more

Carrie Thorne continues strong with her Demon Hunter Romance series with book two, Wildest. She continues to put a refreshing twist on her characters species and storylines. You learn the differences in werewolves. Astrid is a demon hunter that is sent to help Brodie’s pack of werewolves. Also, learn why they are taught to hate each other. Their chemistry grows and catches fire.

This story is quick, fast-paced and flows together wonderfully. It is a sweet, captivating read that has twists and tur

I really enjoyed Astrid’s story! It was definitely helpful to read the first book before this one, but not necessary. Astrid is a relatable character and well developed and realistic, which I appreciated. Bodie is funny and lovable and cute! I enjoyed seeing their relationship blossom. I also like that it didn’t keep the same story structure as the first book, they were unique plots and unique relationships, which is fantastic in a series!

I liked this story overall. I am a huge fan of the paranormal romance genre so I was looking forward to reading this book. I am still not sure how I feel about the descriptions of werewolves but I went with the author's vision while reading the book. The story kind of lost me in the middle of the book around the preparing for battle parts but the story came together in the end. The intimate scenes were hot.

Boden is the kind of shapeshifter any girl would like to see diving into their waters. I liked the first novel of this series but I loved this one. I found myself fully invested in what would happen with the problem they faced and their relationship. And I was super happy to have it end in a way that hinted at seeing more of Boden and Astrid in the future. Loved this one.

I love reviewing books like this one. I just loved it. I cannot gush and fangirl over Carrie Thorne enough. It was a book that I couldn't put down. I finished it in one go on Saturday morning. The characters were fun, snappy and worked really well together. The action was fast-paced and intense. It was just a good, fun book to read.

Wow! I thought I enjoyed the first book in this series, Six, but this second book was even better! Bodie is the perfect male lead and fits so well with Astrid! Carrie Thorne does an amazing job developing characters you care about, creating worlds you want to be a part of, and combing romance with action! I cannot wait for the next book in this series!

Highly entertaining read, shot all my misconceptions down...
I was pleasantly surprised to get invested in this flawless story featuring a hot wolf shifter & a fearless beauty who commanded a team of demon hunters. It was funny, sexy & scary in equal parts, their respect & attraction for each other was off the charts & heart healing. Definitely a genre I will not be averse to reading in the future. I received an arc & this is my honest & voluntary review.
