INVITING IN THE WILD
Having been raised by an evil, vile man – his father – Jace, who has finally found a home with his chosen family, will do anything to protect his pack even at the expense of his own happiness. But when wild, reckless, unbelievably gorgeous, Axie Contreau puts herself in his path, his world is turned upside down. He can’t have what he should claim, and when he learns she’s betrayed him and brought danger to his pack’s doorstep, he won’t allow her to jeopardize the lives of the people he loves. Complications have no place in his well-ordered world, yet Axie wedges her way into his life forcing him to eliminate the threat to his pack once and for all. Now, he has to decide if he can endure risking his heart.

“He wanted to walk away from her, but he wanted to come closer too. His human brain versus his shifter heart—”
Ah, Jace…finally. The protector, the lone wolf who has decided that his pack family is all that he’ll ever have. He knows all about mates, but that doesn’t mean he wants one. He sees the happy couples in his pack, but that’s them…not him. Good luck with that, right?
I confess that the idea of there being just one person out there destined to be your mate is very romantic. I got so excited as I anticipated the eventual connection between Jace and his mate. I know I’m not the only one that digs how they all seem to fight it but are unable to withstand the pull as they are drawn to each other. It wouldn’t be nearly as exciting if they just gave in immediately.
Jace was raised by a monster. It’s surprising that he has so much heart after suffering so much pain and abuse as a child. I’ve been worried about him, anxious for him to find a woman of his own. Axie is perfect for broody Jace, her snark and wildness is a good balance for his darkness. He’s kind of a geek and she reminds him to lighten up. She can push his buttons like no other, even more than his brother who is quite skilled at it. Will he give in to fate and make her his? Does he have a choice?
Oh, how I love this St. Leasing family. Every new addition makes it even better, cuz you know those alphas need a woman to soften them up. But, it’s also those women that make them growl and fight. Their witty banter is so entertaining and to say I’m addicted is an understatement. I can’t wait to see who ends up with Jasper and Riley! The line forms here…
