**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**
Talk about an awkward first meeting. The first time Kade (in his bear form) sees Charlotte, aka Charlie, she’s pointing a gun at him. Yes, it’s loaded with a tranquilizer dart, but still…awkward. (I mentally typed that in a sing songy voice. LOL) Charlie has tracked down Kade as part of her job. She’s with a special division of the FBI and they believe Kade is responsible for two deaths. (Psst…they were actually wolf shifters.)
While she’s stalking, err tracking, Kade, she’s injured, severely so, by a wolf and Kade feels this overwhelming urge to help her. That help entails taking her to the cabin he shares with his mate, Daniel.
Daniel, though once rogue until Kade found him, as per his job position, and was able to save him, is not only concerned for Charlie, but also intrigued by her and Kade’s reaction to her.
Kade is his usual grumpy self, which leads Charlie to determine he doesn’t like her, doesn’t trust her, and wants her gone asap, yet is holding her prisoner. Although some of Kade’s actions, one in particular, put a different shine on his attitude. *whispers…he likes her, she’s their third*
So the sparks continue to fly, Charlie is slowly and painfully healing, Kade continues to be a Grumpy Bear, and Daniel is the voice of reason as needed. Yet, things aren’t quite as rosy regarding Charlie’s job. Why was she sent out there by herself? How can they prove Kade is innocent of the deaths, while protecting the actual perpetrator and proving their actions were justified? Will Charlie stay with Daniel and Kade or go back to her life? So many questions that need answered and Roxie does it all in this short story.
I recommend this book, this series, and while it’s not necessary, I do suggest you read the books in order in able to experience the full story of each of the characters as they’re all connected in some way.
