Jess Carter wasn't looking for a place to belong when she arrived in Banks, Idaho. It was supposed to be a temporary spot to finish out her last year of high school and bond with her dad.
Meeting Dom changed everything.
Now, the Pack needs her. Dom needs her. And she's figuring out she needs them if they plan to survive what's coming.
A challenge has been issued and if the Pack doesn't respond they'll be seen as weak. With the motel at capacity, they have a lot to lose if the challenge coming their way isn't met. Caleb is struggling, Anna is absent, and Sam refuses to see her brother or father. Can Jess bring them together before the Hanley's finish tearing them apart?
If possible, I liked this one even better! A lot more happens and we get a better uderstanding of the ‘good’ and ‘bad’ shifters in this book. The pace is faster and we get lots more action and reaction in this one. We see double crosses and political manuvering that adds some great elements in this book. The romance evolves quite a bit in this book as well.
Jess’ family starts to become more involved in the main storyline and its awesome how quickly they become intregal to the story. Even her gold digging mom makes an appearence. Man, I love how she’s handled. Jess finally accepts the fact that she needs to know everything in order to survive and protect her family, plus there are things about her family that make them pretty important to the storyline. I really like how much power Jess is given about her involvement. Its not thrust upon her too soon, she is allowed to digest the info at her own pace. Although some of her reluctance ends up costing them in the end.
We get to know more about the shifter’s dynamic in this one and man there are lots of little things that you need to pay attention to. It is almost too much, almost but not quite. All these little things are necessary and make sense to the big picture that’s painted by the author. It all comes together (well mostly) and I love when all the loose ends are tied up. Still waiting ont the next one, which if I remember correctly, comes out at the end of November.
