Sometimes You Mate For Life
Katie Smith is the best of her class, part of an elite hunting force trained to eliminate werewolves from the hills of Western Virginia. She's good at it because she has the kind of focus and drive that won't back down no matter how steep the odds. Call it southern sass. Whatever it is, there's no denying her willingness to risk everything for the only man she's ever cared about--a man on the verge of losing his very humanity. . .
Sometimes You Mate To Stay Alive
For the past ten years Jordan Pride has dedicated his life to protecting his people from a deadly shifter virus. But in a rare moment of distraction, Jordan's guard drops just long enough for his fate to take an irreversible twist. Unless the woman he loves surrenders everything to him, again and again, under a full moon rising. . .
I fell in love with Jordan and Katie in the beginning with Fated. Through out the series got just enough info on just knowing they are going to have their own story. Wow loved every moment of it with a sexy Alpha Male Shifter and a sexy kick butt heroine.
Consumed takes place 10 years ahead of the last novel Hunted. I enjoyed how Rebecca has skipped some years especially since now Janie, Zane and Kalin are adults.
In Hunted Rebecca gave just a little bit of info on how Jordan and Katie met. Consumed starts off with the Prologue of the back story of how they met. Loved how it started this way, sweet and a bit sad. Also got to learn how she got her nickname Kitten.
Jordan is a sworn worthy, alpha male hero who has protected and gave Katie a home since she was like 6 years old. He is the Alpha male of his pack of lion shifters but has never let anybody in. He is kind of a loner. Since Katie has grown up he has been having feelings for her, but does not think it is right because he basically helped raised her. Sometimes his actions from his broodiness leaves for some ups and downs with them.
Katie I adore her strong will character and goes after what she wants. What she wants is Jordan and makes it very clear. His life is in danger of a virus and she will do what ever it takes to save him, even make him mate with her. She knows deep in her heart that Jordan has strong feelings for her. She finds ways to get into his heart and makes him realize he needs to love and have people love him. Poor Katie my heart did break a few times because Jordan is a very stubborn hero and sometimes things he said were not what he really wanted. But for Katie to hear it from the one and only person she has loved it hurts.
The chemistry was sweet and hot. The sexual tension was the best. Just enough that I could not wait for them to get together and when they do WOW it is steamy. I enjoyed the journey of their ups and downs and how they can get their HEA. They had some heartbreaking, happy and made me giggle moments. I am happy I did not have to wait for tons of novels before to get to their story. It was just enough books before and teasers to make their story perfect.
As always Rebecca has yummy secondary characters and in Consumed we got to see more of Maggie. Loved her friendship with Katie. Got just enough teasing with Maggie and Terrent to know they will have their own story. Look forward to their novella coming out June 2013. Really wish it was full length, not complaining Rebecca, I will take what ever I can get on them. The teasing amount that was in Consumed they are for sure not done, Maggie was a bad wolf, but for good reasons.
“I’ll consider myself lucky, then.”
His smile almost caused another panic attack. “Oh, this is just a short reprieve, little wolf. We’re nowhere near done.”
Kane’s book is next in Provoked and curious on how his story will be. He is the quiet of the bunch mostly fighting and in the lab. So far the series just gets better and better.
