Owen Wright, alpha of his wolf pack, hasn’t seen jaguar shifter Gabriela Segura in nearly ten years. She was his first love—until he did something to drive her away just as their relationship was heating up. Now Gabriela has returned to Montana, and his craving for her is stronger than ever .
But a recent string of brutal attacks on humans have the wolves suspicious of the jaguars, threatening the tenuous peace between the packs. Before he can claim Gabriela as his mate, they must join forces to prove her family’s innocence and track down the true predator.
I loved this novella! It’s a fun quick read with great characters and some hot action, as in the sexy kind and the danger kind! As usual with books written by Katie Reus, this one was well written with an entertaining plot and likable characters. Even though it’s a short read, only about 7 chapters, it’s not lacking in character development or plot development.
It starts off with Gabriela coming home after years of being away and it’s immediately known that she does NOT want to see Owen, who was her best friend and first love, because he apparently broke her heart. Unfortunately Owen’s not so smart little brother runs into her and starts a chain of events that brings her and Owen together to solve the horrible Jaguar attacks in the area, that Owen’s wolf pack believes Gabriela’s Jaguar shifter family are guilty of.
Owen and Gabriela come together in the sexiest way. Their chemistry is sizzling and that makes for some really sexy love scenes that had me more than a little hot and bothered. Owen alone was pretty hot! ;) He’s the sweetest kind of alpha male there is, and he loves Gabriela fiercely! And Gabriela was a great heroine. She was destroyed by Owen’s betrayal but instead of dwelling on that the whole entire time she opened herself up to him and essentially let herself be won over by the big wolf.
This really was a fantastic read and exactly what I needed to get me through a hectic night at home with my screaming children and my not-so-helpful husband. It sucked me right into the story and kept me engrossed the whole time! If you enjoy a good shifter romance, this book is definitely for you! I guarantee you’ll love this story! :)
Side Note: LOVE the cover for this one! ;)
