Like Kade trying to manipulate the situation to benefit him. I see you and your rogue ways and I up you one. I just hope it doesn’t backfire.
Or Liam and that dirty little secret he has up his sleeve. Oh, Prince Charming, don’t worry, I see you too, and I accept you.
Athos, sometimes the key to happiness is letting go.
Christian, well, my knight I may just have to push you down a peg or two and then catch you.
Nix. Nix. Nix. I think it’s past time you step up to the plate and stop hiding from the alpha within. One way or another, I’ll tease him right out of you.
So how does a gal make her mates see themselves the way she sees them? By turning the tables and throwing their antics right back at them. That’s how, and I am up for the challenge. With the council breathing down our necks, we will have to become united and fight as one. That means healing the wounds of our past and seducing them to close forever.
The power of Artemis flows in my veins, and it’s time I use it to my advantage.

Elle Lincoln has been writing out her dreams and even nightmares for over a decade. She believes in magic in all forms, and oftentimes you’ll find her daydreaming in the oddest of places. Her passion is Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance, where the men are a little bit real and a dash of mythical.
When Elle isn’t writing she’s probably chasing around her four children, child-like husband, and a rambunctious Australian Shepherd. All who keep her on her toes. Nice try with the distractions, but mommy still got those books written and published. She resides in the beautiful state of Pennsylvania with lore and legends, and a whole lot of cornfields.
Once again, another AMAZING book in this series. After the ending of Submission, I wasn’t sure what was going to happen in this one.
In my soul, i felt like this book was definitely the darkest of the series. Although, I don’t think it was a “dark” book, it had so many revelations. There was heartbreak, which I’m still torn up about even though there is a plan. My heart hurt for some of the characters in this one.
There’s a shadow (not that guy, fuck him) over the group and they need to figure out how to get back in the sun. The council has called a summit to deal with them, and this book has incredibly built the anticipation for that shit show.
Sabina is letting her true self out and she is a strong and hell warrior who will do anything for her men. I admire her character so much. And the guys, I love them all. Finally, we understand Kades plan. Where the groups relationship was tethered in Submission, it had grown strong and capable in Seduction.
And holy fucking cliffhanger. WHAT IS HAPPENING???? There’s not too much information out about the books but i googled and searched to find out when Salvation comes out because I. Need. It. Now. (Luckily, Elle’s website mentioned February so we won’t have to wait that long. Even though it’s longer than right now).
I already reread this series, but this is definitely one that i’ll just continuously reread because i love it.
The way things escalated in this book, wow, like i cant. At the beginning of the story, Sabina is like a fluffy girl who likes sweets but then she meets her lycan mates and as the story continues, literally everything changes and i love it. Sabina learns to fight her battles and also unveil the secrets....the fucking secrets....plot twist after plot twist, so much suspense, it was amazing.
I sort of hated this book in the best way. Literally everything Sabina did got on my damn nerves. When she agreed to the etiquette training to please Athos- eww! When she was disappointed in Athos for being a killer- weak. When her mates wouldn’t let her kill Nala because she isn’t a killer- stupid! When she whined about how she never REALLY knew her dad- pathetic! When she cried about her Grandma not being her Grandma- annoying! Not to mention what a let-down. I was really hoping for a secret Demi-goddess, but NOOOO!
Then, none of that even touches on how confusing & inconsistent this book was. Like all the stuff with the council & later with Silver made absolutely no sense. The lycans entire relationship with the gods is confusing. They worshipped the gods, then the gods left, then it was illegal to converse with them, & now what? I guess it’s fine now because Pan is very much in the picture. So the rules just keep changing to accommodate the council? I mean I get that as a plot device they are giving us the opposition needed to force a fight. I guess my confusion comes from how this small corrupt circle of lycans is able to rule the entirety of paranormal kind in this universe & nobody except Sabina’s dad, Allen & Kade ever had a problem with it? Hell, not even Artemis really ever stepped in. Every other lycan was like “oh you just murdered an entire pack who were also council members for talking to a god & now you would like to pick up where they left off? Cool” .... 🤨 OR how no one seemed to be bothered when the killed off Nix’s pack & stole his mother? I just need the council’s actions to make sense- like we still don’t know why they killed Allen & WHY is Sabina an abomination? I still don’t truly understand why the council dislikes her. They said it was because she was mortal, but they have a mate shortage!! They should be so lucky! Then the werewolves come into creation, but I don’t understand why that is a better option in the council’s eyes. They are just as human as she is, it isn’t even guaranteed to work, & it goes against their entire purpose to keep humans safe when they take them & change them against their will- or in secret rather. What exactly is it with a goddesses blessing that they are so against? Especially since that’s exactly what they are? A god cursed them & a goddess amended that curse with a blessing....SAME!!
So freaking aggravated....so of course, I’m going to rush to read the last book, because that cliffhanger?!?! Argh! It’s important to note that though I may not have agreed with some of the subject matter- anytime a book can rile me up this much, it’s a good thing! Whether good or bad I’d rather read something memorable & intriguing than boring & mediocre.
This entire review has been hidden because of spoilers.
The best books are these: when an author is so talented, you can visualize yourself in the story. So many times in these Fated Souls books have I been able, in my head, to visualize myself as Bean, doing things that she’s doing. Elle Lincoln creates literally the perfect words to be able to SEE this happening. I’m there, during the action scenes, during the steamy scenes, even during the scenes when they are eating food, or walking through the trees. These words bring me into the forest, driving the cars, and running my hands through the fur. The steam she’s written for Bean and the guys, it’s magnetic. It draws you and invests you into the moment. You become a part of it, you feel what Sabina feels.
Beyond the imagery that has sucked me in, the plot of these books is so amazing, it’s so original... this book in particular answers a lot of questions, important questions. But it truly leads into a whole new world. A world no one knew existed. I cannot wait for book four, to see what Sabina and her pack do next!
Wowser this book is jam packed with action and plenty of hot steamy scenes to keep you hooked throughout. We get to see Sabina grow so much in this book and learn so much about herself, her dad and her family. All while having her guys protect her and letting her in more and showing her more of who they really are. With so much I can say about this book I don't want to give to much away, as this book reveals so much. All I can still say is yet again we are left on a cliffhanger ending after such a great build up to the end.
1. Elle Lincoln is a wicked genius. 2. I love Sabina more with each book. 3. I need a Kade and Christian sandwich. 4. It bums me out but this book really deserves a better editor. There a too many paragraphs that don't make sense or there are inconsistencies in the character leading the action. 5. Regardless of note four the book is still amazing and you should most definitely read it. 6. Can we please get some Grandma Inspo on Instagram? I can just see the edit now.
This series has got to have one of the most unique storylines that I've ever read. Each book just keeps getting better and better as the series continues and is full of so many twists and surprises along the way to keep you intrigued and involved in the words you are reading. Usually when you get to a third book in a series you can kind of predict what will happen next. Honesty, with this one I have no idea what will be next in store for this group. There are so many unknowns floating around that it is hard to tell what path the author will choose to take with this story and its characters, but I really love that mystery and state of unknown that we are led into. It makes me look forward to the next book even more. There is way too much good stuff going on with this story that I don't see this series ending by the next book. Maybe book five. Either way, I'm here for the ride. I've really enjoyed Bean, her mates, and her close knit family. This book has shown how relationships are the foundation of any strength. When anything happens with a family member every single woman in Bean's family is ready to congregate or already on their way to help out. Even in her relationship with the guys, you see a bit of a change as their relationship solidifies a bit more. Secrets are revealed and characteristics that were hidden or felt ashamed about were embraced. Before Bean, the guys were already so close, but she has really brought them together in a whole other way. They have gotten to the point where there is something greater to fight for. And fight they will. This book set up the possibility of several different problems in the future, whether they are separate or a combined issue--the involvement of Pan, the council, Bean's heritage and her father's involvement with the gods. It's sure to be interesting to see what happens! I look forward to Bean's snarkiness with the gods and anyone who looks down on her for being female. She's so much stronger than people give her credit for and I can't wait for them to keep underestimating her.
The book is even hotter than the previous ones. Made challenges Shadow because he thinks Shadow is the one that killed Allen, Sabina's father. But Sabina knows that Shadow was not the one that did it. Now, Made is Alpha to a pack that has changed mortal women into lycans. Made does not make the women become pawns to the males, he gives them free will to chose instead. Anyone in the pack that does not agree, Made kills them. Meanwhile, the Elders have called a meeting of all shifters to meet at the pack grounds of Atho's pack. Sabina keeps telling her mates that she feels like the Elders are behind the death of her father but they are not sure of that. Things start happening that no one expects to happen. A God, Pan, was behind Shadow and what he did to the mortal women. Sabina us still trying to figure out who killed her father. They discover a traitor in their midst and find out just a little more on how someone was able to get to Allen. Sabina also finds out her father was more than who she thought he was. More excitement rests within these pages than you can imagine.
No plot spoilers No potential triggers. The sentence structure and poor grammar seriously need a decent editor - one example (from the authors blurb) - Without you I wouldn't not be where I am now. The book is littered with little examples such as this, but funnily enough, it doesn't totally detract from the storyline and the book is more than readable. The plotline has moved significantly forward with previously hidden motivations coming to the fore, but not by a long shot is all revealed. I do feel the balance between show and tell is better in this book, and that the plotline isn't mired in personal angst. However, I do think it moved slowly, with the slow burn aspect of Athos just about as cold as ashes. The characterisation is okay, enough to draw you into the storyline and keep reading. There are some sex scenes and plenty of swearing, there is also a fair bit of violence. Obviously I will be purchasing the next book in this series.
I cant even sit still at the moment. I'm dying to know what happens next. I have to wait 6 days!!!! I'm not going to make it. Okay enough about me. Let's talk about Bean. She's everything you want in a FMC. She's feisty and sassy. Shes loving and kind. Shes a worrior. She's definitely a bad ass tho she doesn't have it all easy. Now the guys...... God's have mercy they will make you HOT!!!! Each has there own little quarks that make them special. I'm not going into detail because honestly you just need to read it!!! Do yourself a favor and pick up this series. You will not be disappointed. Can I give this a million stars? ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
OH, Goodness, woman, you kill me with these cliffhangers. YOU SLAY ME WITH THEM!
I don't even know where to start. I can't. My mind is blown.
Sabina's very naughty mate, Kade, destroyed Shadow at the end of Submission, and now is the Alpha of Shadow pack meaning, he's split Bean's sub-pack. Bean starts this book fed up with all of them and needs some time with the women in her life. She tells the boys to figure out their sugar and has Artemis spirit her away to her cousins and Nessa. Thus we begin Seduction. A book in which snack foods are seriously threatened.
There are all sorts of crazy reveals in this book, and I can't even begin to tell you where I was most surprised. Things that happened in this book said in short and confusing sentences that could mean anything.
-Liam comes out -Christian fights a bevy of beauties -Athos almost can't share -Nix spites the Lord -Women everywhere hate Kade -No dogpiles when someone loves you
I think the one thing that was a more than obvious reveal was everything having to do with Artemis. She's just been obvious from the get-go. But what wasn't was Nessa. I am still trying to work that one out. Still trying to figure out what you are trying to make me look away from to sleight of eye me there, Elle. What are you trying to fool me with about Nessa?!
So my rating is 4 of 5 rogue bullets, beware.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary advance copy of this book.
Absolutely love this series and it seems to only improve with each book. The beginning was a little slow of this book but persevere as it rapidly picks up pace. I like the fact that it is a little different from most shifter books with the involvement of gods. I love the humour as well as the fact that the main character is not perfect and has quirks. The storyline has still been kept interesting with great potential of spin off series of other characters. Some series I start to get bored of by the later books but not this one, can’t wait to get stuck in to the next book.
Picking up right from where we left off we follow our favorite sub-pack as they travel rocky water that lays ahead. Stuck as pawns in a game that hasn’t been revealed to most of them a lot of secrets come to light. There’s a few twists tossed in along the action-packed, at times hilarious, and fairly bloody road. While some big secrets are unearthed, more lie in wait for the next installment and none more tantalizing than the cliffhanger we are left on.

This book and series is a fantastic read. It is funny, sarcastic, lovely, action packet and throw in some sexy time with sexy mates and goddess bless female lead and Elle has written an amazing set of books that should be read in order to get the best out of the story. I read the first 3 books in a week and have never been so sleep deprived in one week but I just couldn’t put them down. I can not wait to see where Elle takes the rest of these books with these wonderful characters.
I love this set. there is more romance and sexual tension in this one than the last to put together. I love how their relationship builds through this book. Sabina and her junk food obsession cracks me up. The fact she can get away with curse out The goddess Artemis is hilarious. I love the Greek god touch to it. I love the fact that she keeps her snark even with the gods. Sabina has gone from being almost a spoiled brat to an ass kicker. I can't wait to see what the next book for brings. Elle way to leave us hanging!
We finally learn more about who Sabina’s father was and who may have killed him as well as more backstory on the guys. Family troubles abound for Sabina and others which will change their trajectory. I thought for some reason this book would be final but it isn’t - still a lot of unanswered questions not to mention potential spin offs with Pepper, Ash and Nessie.
The adventure continues and many more secrets are revealed! Ugh I can’t put into words how much I love this series. Sabina is so freaking funny and heartwarming. We see a little more substance and grit with her in this book. Kade and Christian are my faves but the rest of the guys are pretty great as well. Obviously it ended on an epic cliffhanger and I can’t wait for the next book!
I dislike books that raise more questions without answering even half of the several dozen questions laid out in the previous books. There is no way to answer everything at this point without rushing everything else to come, unless you continue to drag it out several more books; and frankly, the storyline just isn’t strong or compelling enough to merit it. The series is starting to feel as though it’s trying too hard to be cool.
Can't believe you just left us hanging like than!!!! This entire series has been amazing, but Seduction was the best so far. And the cliffhanger makes me want to beg for more! Can't wait for the next book. Take care of the precious babes, and husband and dog......... But please hurry with the last. I love the fetal!is from the pieces character to the attitude of the Amazon's.
Sabina and the guys are back in book three of the Fated Souls series. After the ending of book two I was anxious to find out what would happen next for the group. With every twist secrets are revealed but yet I felt like we still had so much more to find out. After that cliffhanger ending I am so ready to read the next book in the series to find out what happens next. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.
The ending left me wanting and I hate to wait! But it was a good kind of burning. I was disappointed that things were not more clear during "realization" moments, and what happened to Dakota? Still this is one of my favorite series. Bean and the she-wolves are the best characters I've read in a long time. The snark and sarcasm is the best! And how seamless it flows with each man character.
One of the best supernatural series I have ever read and what a cliffhanger! I need book 4 like now please ☺️ I am enjoying this adventure very much! And it’s had me crying with tears. It’s a real feel good book for sure. There is some twists unraveled in this book 3 you don’t wanna miss. I do love Sabina! She’s becoming more and more interesting and she’s finally finding herself too.
Wow - talk about twists and turns. This book was a roller coaster of action and emotion. Everyone grows up a little more and things actually get serious - though nothings gets sorted with the council. The heat is also up a notch as the harem sorts Itself out. A fair bit of show and tell and a lot of glossing over with not much development. I still found the storyline fascinating and will continue to book 4. A big cliffhanger at the end also helps.
Oh no, little Bean! I was shocked at the ending of this book trying to imagine what the possibilities may be. I fell in love with these characters in the beginning and I'm just dying to know how their story ends. I know it will forever be one of my re-reads. Sabina is such a hilarious, snack loving, character that I think most of us can relate too. Grandma's secret kind of shocked me. I figured there was more to her than we knew but I didn't know it was that. Come on book 4. I need you!
This series just gets better and better! It is well written and flows flawlessly from one book to the next. Each book picks up right where the previous one ended. A fantastic read where the steam is burning up in this one. A must read!

I love this series I can not wait for the next book to come out. I hate to be left hanging so I hope the next book comes out real soon so I can finally finish it. I couldn't put it down it has everything I love in a book action, comedy,and romance. Plus there is not a whole lot of sex seen in this series either and I like that.
