Backpacking through Europe with her best friend, Beth never thought she would run into her worst nightmare. Two years later she is finally ready to settle down. She meets a handsome man, Braden, and hopes that she can find a way toward a semi-normal life.
All that changes when her nightmare tracks her down and not only does the past collide with the future, but it brings back all the horrors she once lived with.
Now she is once again fearing for her life and the ones she cares most about.
There is so much more to Braden then Beth knows and when she finds out that he's part of the same nightmare she lived with two years back, she has no idea who to trust. She has no choice but to tell him and his family the truth of her past and hope they can help her when her past catches up with her.
I'm always excited to see new story with the werewolf theme. Now that the shifter genre has been popular for a while, authors are getting more imaginative. In Amanda E. Alvarez, world Beth is just learning that as with human, there are good and evil. While learning to live with her own consequences of her first meeting with werewolves, she also must face the most evil werewolf there is. The whole book shows the good and evil theme, with two conflicting families and their differences.
While the story finishes up the story between Braden and Beth at the end it does provide an opening for other books for a series. The supporting characters, including other members of the Edwards' family would make great sequel characters and I'm looking forward to meeting them.
Well written with a good plot this is definitely one to put on your reading list if you like paranormal and romantic suspense books.
For two years, Beth Williams has run from the past-and the beast that dwells inside her. She is haunted by memories of being kidnapped and the savage attack that killed her best friend. Now Beth finally thinks she's ready to move on...with Braden Edwards, a charming, irresistibly sexy man who tempts Beth to embrace the present.
But the past lurks closer than Beth realizes. Markko Bolvek, one of the werewolves who kidnapped her, has tracked her to Portland, Oregon, his pursuit fueled by a hunger for vengeance. Only Braden, a werewolf himself, senses the danger shadowing her steps. The Edwards and Bolveks have been enemies for centuries-and despite the instant connection he feels with Beth, Braden isn't sure which side of the war she's on.
With suspicion at odds with their attraction, Beth and Braden must learn to trust one another to stop Markko for good. Can Beth accept the wolf within-and love a man who embodies everything she fears?
