Book review: Kept (Coveted #2) by Shawntelle Madison
Fresh from defending her pack in battle, Natalya Stravinsky, a whip-smart werewolf with a lovable neurotic streak, wants a little rest and relaxation. Once an outcast, she’s now eager to rejoin the ranks of her New Jersey pack, and has even gotten a handle on her obsessive urge to hoard holiday ornaments. Yet Nat barely has time to revel in her progress before the next crisis comes howling at her door.
Nat’s father has suddenly gone missing, captured by the Russian werewolf mafia. And as Nat steps up to save her dad from a mob boss’s deadly game, two men step in to play another round for her heart: her gorgeous alpha ex-boyfriend, Thorn, and her new flame, the sweetly sensitive wizard Nick. With her life growing more harried by the minute, Nat must stay cool, calm, and collected . . . or else risk losing everything.
This is book 2 in the Coveted series by Shawntelle Madison. I have not read book 1 but i have it and am reading in reverse it seems. I think you can read this on it's own but it would be better with having read book 1 first to catch some of the back story to this book. That being said i really enjoyed this book. It's my first book by the author and i was pleasantly surprised how much i liked it. There are werewolves, Wizards, mermaids, muse's and a whole bunch of interesting characters. Natalya ( love the name) is a interesting character. She's got a support group full of friends who help her with her quirks. Nick being a one of them is a wizard and a love interest of hers as well as her ex boyfriend Thorn. Loved both these buys but i really felt for Nick. Natalya still loves Thorn but can't have him as he's supposed to marry another wolf in a arranged marriage for the pack as he is become their alpha male or leader. While Natalya is dealing with her quirks and her feelings she has to also go after her father when he is kidnapped and then face the trials in order to become officially a member of the pack. Shawntelle Madison brings all these characters to life for me and you can get a pretty vivid picture in your mind of the story as it unfolds. I tried sitting up to read this in one sitting but couldn't quite make it. If i could i would have. Those are the best kinds of books i find. I would encourage you to try this series out. It's got a bit of everything and it all comes together to pull you through the story. 5 out of 5 stars for Kept by Shawntell Madison.
