He has the one thing she never thought she deserved. A place to belong…
de La Vega Cats, Book 2
At long last, Kendra Kellogg has found her sister—but she’s no closer to filling the gaps in her past. The magick that brought them together makes them targets for dark mages intent on finishing what started with their mother’s murder.
As if her life wasn’t chaotic enough, in barrels the one thing she doesn’t expect, Max de La Vega. He’s six-and-a-half-feet of cocoa-brown alpha male. He’s strong, intelligent, sexy and intense. Everything she’d wanted in a man. And he scares the hell out of her. Still healing from a disastrous past relationship, she wonders if she’ll ever have that kind of forever.
The next in line to run his jaguar jamboree, Max is unused to hearing “no”. Once he knows what he wants, he assumes he’ll get it. And he wants Kendra. She deserves happiness and it’s his mission to give it to her.
When dark mages attempt to steal her magickal energy, Max’s cat agrees with the man—Kendra is his to protect and he will stop at nothing to keep her safe. She can push him away as hard as she likes, he’s not going anywhere.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
And my obsession with Lauren Dane’s brand of paranormal catnip continues…
Although Revelation doesn’t have two hot and sexy heroes to rev up your engines like Trinity, the first book in the series, Max proved 100% worthy of taking care of his woman all by himself. He also keeps it all in the family since Kendra is Renee’s sister and Max is Galen’s brother (from Trinity). This worked well for me since I got to spend even more time with the de La Vega Jamboree. The de La Vega Cats is one of those series that I would recommend reading in order to get the most out of it. Each couple gets their HEA but there is an ongoing battle against mages that spans the series.
Kendra moved to Boston to help her sister learn how to control her magick. With Renee’s missing memories slowly returning, they learn things are worse than anyone thought when it comes to her parents and the mages.
Kendra was the complete opposite of her sister. She was confident, strong, and willing to make the tough decisions needed to protect not only her family but all witches. Yes, she had a few little self-esteem issues stemming from her childhood, but not enough to let them get her down which made her seem more real. I loved how Kendra decided to deal with the dangers posed by the mages despite knowing it will raise eyebrows and could cause friction in the witch community.
Max was everything I wanted him to be, hot, sexy, smart, sure of himself, and alpha to his core. He could be a bit sappy when it came to wooing his woman but I forgave him that. The sexual chemistry between Max and Kendra was combustible and when they got together, it definitely caught fire.
There was a definite good vs. evil vibe which I loved, although at times the dialogue got a bit dramatic. The politics of the jamboree were all kinds of interesting to me and I enjoyed getting to know more of the cats. It’s been forever since I read these books and I can’t remember what happens next so I’m looking forward to diving into the next in the series when it re-releases.
