Series: Durham Wolves Book #2
Author: Becca Jameson
Genre: Paranormal, Romance
Blurb: When Jaxon Durham isn’t raising thoroughbreds with his brothers, he’s using his heightened senses to search for missing hikers in the Smokies. This time the call is for a firefighter gone missing on the front lines.
In his wolf form, he’s the first to track the firefighter to a cave, but he’s stopped cold by a stunning realization—it’s his mate. To his relief, the body covered in fireproof gear is female.
Brianna White can’t decide if she’s died and gone to heaven, or unconscious and having a delicious dream, when the wolf standing before her shifts into a naked man. Either way, she can’t resist the urge to go along for the ride. She never expected to fall so instantly, and so hard, for the sexy hunk.
But an old enemy is lurking beyond the walls of their refuge. The clock is ticking while Jaxon races to evade the deadly threat, even deadlier flames, and overcome the stubborn will of a woman who’s not sure she’s ready to give up life as she knew it.
Warning: Dark, sexy wolves in the Appalachians evoke steaming sex in a cave, light bondage and dominance, various plugs and vibrators, and an interesting masturbation chamber…
Thoughts: I was really excited to read this book, and from the beginning it really reeled me in. The story line was good, and the sex scenes were erotic and HOT! But all the important stuff seemed to happen in the first few chapters, and it seemed to dwindle a little after that – it seemed a bit of a struggle to keep the book going. They went from meeting to mating for life in the span of a day, and I wish it had been a bit more drawn out. I also thought that Brianna seemed to accept everything that Jax said completely, no matter how wild and outrageous it sounded. She just bought into it. The main guy was a bit standard, nothing special, nothing that added a sense of added danger to the storyline – he mostly just seemed like a bothersome fly in the scheme of things. Good, but not one of the better ones out there.
