Book Trailer

michele review4 starsThis is the 3rd book in the series, and even if you start with this book first (like I did) you aren’t totally lost with what’s going on. If you are one of those people who HAVE to know the entire back story before reading a book in the series, then you should definitely book up book 1 first. With saying that, I still really enjoyed this book!

This is Josh and Mira’s story. These two have had the hots for each other since the first day they met, but there are so many things that stand in their way of happiness, Josh being human one of the main reasons. Once the council had put a time limit on Mira to find a mate, Josh desperately tries to find a way for them to be together. He can’t stand the thought of another man touching HIS woman, he just won’t allow it.

Once Josh is finally able to court Mira, things start to get hot. I mean so hot you’re fanning your face because of the steaminess of the scenes! However, while Josh is trying to find a way to be with Mira, there is danger in the mist. The closer it gets for Mira to choose a mate, the more danger the Anderson family seems to be in. Shifters come into the Anderson territory and start to cause trouble, and a woman from Josh’s past won’t leave him alone. She’s desperate to get Josh back and keep him this time.

During all of this, Josh has been having strange dreams and has been feeling off since an incident he had at his bar one night. Ever since, he’s been faster and stronger than a normal human. He keeps chalking it up to being around the shifters too long, or could this be what Josh finally needs to become Mira’s one true Mate.

Will the gods give Josh and Mira the one thing they need to be able to be together, or will the danger surrounding the Anderson family get to them before the gods give their gift?

I really enjoyed this book I can’t wait to see what comes next with this series. I also can’t wait to read more from Nancy Corrigan! I love these paranormal books and she has been added to a list of my favorite authors in this genre!

I really enjoyed this story! It captured me and kept me entranced from page one!

From the moment she saw him, she was captivated. Watching fight with himself in an alley only made her want to know more.

Josie has had a horrible past, what she can remember of it anyways. She’s all alone in the world and does whatever she can to make her FEEL something. What better way to feel something than have sex with random strangers and take drugs? She’s let a few people in her bubble, but she only lets them in so far. This all changes though when she sees that man in the alley fighting with himself. She’s drawn to him and is determined to understand him. However, what she wants and what she ends up getting are two totally different things.

Tristan had found his soul mate at a young age, but she was taken from him while he was young as well. A year or so after he lost the love of his life, he found someone that could take the pain away. The only issue was, she got him into doing illegal errands for her father. After this woman breaks his heart, he goes walking and then fights with himself in an alley, this is when he decides he needs to get out of the life his living now and start anew. While he is choosing his new fate, he looks up to find an interesting woman watching him tear himself apart.

After Josie has watched Tristan for months, they finally meet. To Tristan’s utter shock, Josie is the young woman he lost years ago. The woman that everyone thought was dead. Josie has no memory of Tristan or her past, but is extremely interested in finally talking to someone who might know who she used to be. However, she isn’t ready to hear any of this, she is the one that has to be in control and she lost it the minute Tristan mentioned the name she gave up years ago. So she runs to her safe place, in the arms of a stranger and right to the drugs.

Tristan and Josie’s story is very interesting and keeps you guessing as the story moves along. You get to see Tristan and Josie get to know each other once again. But someone from Josie’s past is out on the hunt and will do everything to get rid of her. They think she knows something that can ruin their plans, to bad she has no clue what it is.

With everything that get in their way, will Tristan and Josie be able to finally reconnect and have that happily ever after? Or will the person that is hunting down Josie get to her before they can start their new beginning?

Like I said earlier, I really enjoyed this book and look forward to read more from Season Vining!
