First let me start by saying that Lora Leigh's Breed series is one of my favorite series on the market today and I hope that she continues to write them, so we can keep reading. That said, this book won't go on my favorite list. Not because it didn't follow along with the series, or it followed along too much, but because at times it seemed whiney and left some strange unanswered questions that had to do with the characters of the book and not the plot.
I will also say that when one gets into a series it is kind of like watching a TV soap. You become invested in the secondary characters and begin to think and wonder where their story is going to go. That was my major disappointment with this book. Lawe Justice and his brother Rule Breaker have been part of the books since the beginning of the Breed Affairs addition. We've grown to love their little comments about staying far away from a mate and not wanting any part of mating heat.
Diane, too has been around. As a mercenary who helps the breeds and as Jonas' wife's, Rachel, sister. We see her as the tough in-charge woman who takes care of business. If she has a problem she wouldn't let a breed step on her, she would bunch him out. She would not run or go behind his back. She would just tell him she was going to do something.
That being said. We saw Lawe avoiding a mate for specific reasons rather than playfulness and Diane's hard-ass attitude that I expected, seem to fly out the window.
Lawe has benched himself because he knows that he has found his mate, yet for a year he does nothing about it. He has no idea that Jonas has sent his mate, Diane, on a dangerous mission, three months earlier. Still not wanting to mate Lawe goes to see Diane to get her report, but they get a little side-tracked and by the next day Lawe has decided it is time to mate.
Jonas and his crew are still on the trail of feral breed who is off killing the evil scientists. Diane wants to find three people who may have the answer to her niece's problems. It just so happens that the feral breed wants to find those people as well and is hoping that Diane can lead him to them. This plot line is the best part of the book and for those who are reading the series, this is the reason to work your way through the story.
In the end, I'm not so sure I like Diane and Lawe as a couple, until the second to last scene of the book. Sure romantically and sexually the author did a great job pairing these two characters, but that is where Lora Leigh excels. The question is without the mating heat can these two survive? You'll have to be the judge.
In Lora Leigh's scorching new Breed novel, two adversaries are destined to explore the only thing they have in common: an irresistible mating heat...
Diane Broen's lived to protect her younger sister Rachel from harm. But now that Rachel has been mated off, Diane's occupied herself with less fulfilling tasks at the Genetics Council--until she's paired with a new team member, a Breed male notorious for his attitude, and a touch that makes her recoil.
Lawe isn't thrilled with her either. A lion at heart, he prefers a lair of solitude. When it comes to females, he'd rather snarl than purr. And while fate may have paired them to fight on the same team, neither is willing to admit to the obvious: the mating heat between them is positively incinerating.
It's only when danger threatens that they make a hotter-than-hell connection--one so explosive it could destroy them. Or, as providence reveals, bind them together, forever.
