Available now! ebook provided by author
When the past hurts, it bites.
Takhini Wolves, Book 4
Meet Evan Stone. Laid-back, in-control Alpha of the Takhini Wolves. Life’s not perfect, but he’s got a good handle on his world. At least, he did—until the night he ends up in jail, soaking wet and wondering what the hell just happened.
The “what” is Amy Ryba, a vengeful female who’s decided it’s long past time to make Evan pay for his sins. Amy has spent years tracking him down, and the last nine months working in secret to destroy him. She’s ready for anything—except discovering the shifter she hates is her mate.
Suddenly, Evan’s not so very in control, of himself or his pack. And unless Amy can learn to forgive and forget, she’ll have to do the unthinkable: reject her mate.
With two packs watching, one thing is certain. Their personal issues won’t stay personal for long. If Amy and Evan can’t find a way to work together, there won’t be a happily-ever-after for them…or any of the wolves of Whitehorse.
Warning: Contains angsty wolves. Lots of angsty wolves causing explosions of all sorts, playing bad pranks, hacking computers, and having angry sex against a wall or two. Not all at the same time, though, because that would be silly.
I'll admit i have not read the previous three books in this series. I was told that it could be read as a stand alone and it can but i think if you read the first three first this book will be easier to get into. Evan Stone is this laid back alpha type guy. He runs his pack with authority but also listening to his pack. Then he gets some nasty surprises. Things that tie up the pack resources and cause problems all around. He gets a friend whose a bear shifter to help him look into things. In the meantime Amy Ryba is the alpha of her pack too but she is also really smart and knows how to use technology. She is also the one plotting some revenge on Evan. When they finally see each other in person it becomes apparent that they are mates. That's when all the tension between the two gets started. If Evan and Amy want to combine their wolf packs they have to figure out how to get along first. There is something in their pasts that are keeping them apart and not to mention they are both alphas and have different approaches to leading. Then there are the two packs causing mischief as well. There is a lot of conflict in Amy over Evan she thought she had a good case for revenge until Evan finally tells her what really happened and then she has to struggle with what she's always believed and what really happened years ago. Evan for his part showed a lot of patience and tried to find ways to get her to believe in him. It's kind of hard to like Amy at first but once you find out what she's believed for years you can understand why she was plotting revenge. In the end they finally came together and fought together against a their enemy.
