Review: Feral Sins by Suzanne Wright

Feral Sins (The Phoenix Pack #1)
by Suzanne Wright
Purchase Link: Amazon

If your inner wolf and your body react rather enthusiastically to a psychotic Alpha male who’s own wolf has a tendency to turn feral, it can’t be a good thing, can it? Entering into a bargain with him wouldn’t be good either. Unfortunately, Taryn Warner, a latent wolf shifter, doesn’t have many options open to her right now. Okay, she has no options. Basically it comes down to whether she’ll do what it takes to escape the arranged mating with the sick SOB that her father set up. As the answer in this case is yes, it looks as though she’ll have to agree to Trey Coleman’s deal…she’ll have to mate with him instead.

Having always disliked shifter politics, Trey Coleman hadn’t bothered trying to form alliances with other packs. Now that his uncle – a wolf with many alliances – means to take Trey’s territory and his pack, he has no option but to form some alliances of his own very quickly or he’ll be easily outnumbered in the upcoming battle. He figures that the easiest way to do that would be to mate with a female who’s Alpha is powerful and influential. There’s only one problem with that – he would then be stuck with her, and the last thing Trey wants is a mate. When he hears of Taryn’s situation, he offers her a deal – if she falsely claims he’s her true mate and allows him to claim her, he’ll save her from her arranged mating and then let her leave after the battle with his uncle is over.

Sounds like a pretty straightforward deal...but soon Taryn and Trey realize they got more than they bargained for. Their mating instincts to protect and possess are weighing on them, they crave each other’s touch and company, and their inner wolves don’t like it whenever they’re apart. Add in that they’ll have to deal with this for an entire three months until the day of the battle finally arrives, and they’ve got themselves a recipe for disaster – or maybe for something quite the opposite.

Warning: This novel contains an extremely sarcastic Alpha female, a broody possessive Alpha male, bitter in-laws, voyeuristic enforcers, a whole lot of dirty talk, and steamy bedroom battles for dominance. Reader Advisory: This book also contains a graphic ménage scene - not for the faint-hearted.

Loved It

Suzanne Wright is right up there with some well known authors that knows how to write a sexy-dirty-talking-over-the-top-Alpha-Male-Hero.

Trey, baby loved you right from the beginning with your snide remarks, devilish smile, arrogance, alpha male attitude. Through out the book just fell more in love with him when he got over protective, crazy possessive and jealous. When it comes to protecting his mate he does not hold anything back and is one of those heroes that goes forward with his word when losing his temper. No one is safe around him and only his mate has the power to calm him down in this state of mind.

Taryn is a feisty, smart mouth heroine that at times was a little too alpha for me. Don’t get me wrong I love a strong will heroine and enjoyed her character but at times was over the top and I did wish her attitude was taken down a notch. She definitely can hold her own in protecting herself. She has no problem expressing herself when in trouble and when anyone messes with her mate.

Trey and Taryn made a perfect couple in and out of the bedroom. Many scorching love scenes with them that I needed a cold shower. WOW! Trey sure got my girly bits tingly with his dirty talking mouth. OMG I thought I was going to have to change my panties with the sexing against the bathroom wall. A scene not to be missed, it is one you will read over and over again. Beware there is some hot back door activity, Voyeurism and a graphic ménage scene, even though this scene is freakin hot I felt it really did not need to be in the book. For one way to many guys involved and second they were only allow to touch and not have sex with her. I am curious though since two of the pack members did have a little M/M oral action if there will be something with them in the future. There was nothing said through out the book or clues that they even swing that way.

This is my first Suzanne Wright book and loved it. I love how she writes her Alpha Males that I had to buy all her books. I look forward to reading the next book in the series and her other books.
