After my last Breed read several months ago, I needed a break from the series. I decided to dip my toe back in with this novella –and everything about this series came rushing back. It’s sexy, with a possessive, controlling hero. The heroine is a feisty virgin. The sex is hot. The language walks the line between dirty and ridiculous. And then it’s over.
Tarek is a lion breed who has never had a normal life. He tries to enjoy the little things, like his own home and cutting the grass, while working an undercover job, tracking a Trainer. He enjoys a fun, slightly antagonistic rapport he has going on with his sexy neighbor Lyra. He can’t cook –or even make coffee. He’s never tasted fresh-baked bread. He was raised to think of himself as little more than an animal. Yet, for all of his strength and instinct, he is vulnerable.
Lyra hates how attracted she is to Tarek. But she can’t help it. Of course, it turns out she is his mate. Which leads to lots and lots… and lots… of sex. Her lady bits weep. They convulse. There is a lot shattering and creaming. And then there is Tarek trying to tell her what to do. Granted, there is danger and all, but this is the series M.O. At least he was up front with her about what his kiss would do to her –and he helped make sure she didn’t get pregnant. That’s progress, right?
The I Love You’s were flowing like water and of course Lyla’s brothers are all Special Forces! But that’s what this series is. If you liked the other books in the series, you’d like this one too. For a Breeds book, I’d give it a B. But if I compared it to something else, LOL, not so much.
