Series: The Phoenix Pack Book #6
Author: Suzanne Wright
Genre: Romance, Paranormal
Blurb: When raven shifter Riley Porter was given sanctuary by the Phoenix Pack, she let them believe she had left her flock. Reluctant to divulge the secrets of her past, she was still embraced as family. Only Tao Lukas, the protective and passionate Head Enforcer of the pack, was resistant to the enigmatic shifter. Until Riley started to arouse in him something other than suspicion.
Tao doesn’t trust lone shifters, especially ones so guarded—and tempting. But the sexual tension between them is making them both come undone, and vulnerable to more than desire. All Tao wants is for Riley to stay with him and to trust him with the truth of her past.
As Riley’s mysteries come to light, so does a danger that threatens not only her life but the safety of the entire pack. For Tao, keeping Riley safe means keeping her close—forever—as his mate.
Thoughts: One of my favorite paranormal authors is Suzanne Wright. She’s amazingly talented, and has the unique ability to lend individuality to each of her characters – which makes it so easy to fall in love with all her characters. If you’re a fan of the series, you’ll easily recognize both of our main characters – Tao who we’ve know from the very beginning, and Riley who is one of the more recently introduced characters. It was nice to learn a little bit more about her and her raven’s ‘flock’ and see a little more of the dynamics between these two characters. Tao and Raven have a chemistry and a relationship a little bit different from any of the others, with a bickering, teasing, and even toying aspect to their attraction.
Fierce Obsessions, of course, features the other ‘pack’ characters – which may be a little overwhelming if your new to her as an author, but from just a story aspect it can be read as a stand alone. I recommend reading them in order though – and they are all well worth a read. Though as a heads up, early readers also may notice a bit of a discrepancy in the storyline from book one (the original one anyway), as it was changed and edited a little bit to include removing a scene. If details are your thing, I imagine that that may bother you to the point that it detracts from the enjoyment of the book a little, but for me it was a non-issue.
