Return to the sensual and feral stirrings of the Phoenix Pack as a woman who’s already bound to one man is tempted by a wolf who’s bound only to his nightly desires.
Cat shifter Mila Devereaux can’t help but see it as a betrayal. That her one true mate imprinted himself on another female was hard enough to accept. Struggling to be at peace with her loveless fate, she doesn’t fight the suggestion of entering an arranged mating. Then she meets Dominic, a pack enforcer with a notorious reputation. It’s in his very scent. This irresistible playboy—and delicious badass wolf—is making Mila’s fantasies come alive again.
Alarming, compelling, and heady with sensual energy, Dominic is an expert at making women shed their inhibitions. Now everything about him—his killer smile, his perfectly sculpted body, and his smooth-as-honey voice—is drawing in a captivating new catch. But for the first time in his life, Dominic is feeling more than a fling. He finds himself tantalized by a female who makes him think of forever. He wants all of Mila and won’t be satisfied until he has it.
As the passion grows wild, so does the risk. They’re falling in love in the shadows and secrets of their pasts. And it’s threatening to destroy everything Mila and Dominic are fighting for. And are destined for.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! Why does this have to end?!! Why? WHY??!!!! *throws herself to the floor crying like a 4-year-old*
To say I’m not ready for the Phoenix Pack series to end is putting it mildly (clearly displayed at the beginning of this review in case you missed that). I’ve freaking loved this series from the first to the very last book.
Sadly, this is the last one for the Phoenix Pack wolves but I’m hopeful Ms. Wright will manage to squeeze some of them into her upcoming books.
Who doesn’t love Dominic with his alpha ways, charming smile and terrible pickup lines? I’ve been waiting for some female to make him work for it since we met him. And boy, does Mila make him sweat for her attention! This was probably one of my favorite couple’s dynamic in all the books… ha! Who am I kidding, I love them all equally.
Mila found her true mate but he was already in the process of imprinting with another female in her pride. Unable to handle it, she fled to Russia to visit some relatives and ends up considering entering an arranged mating over there. Once Dominic sets his sights on her though, all bets are off, especially when he won’t give her a reprieve from his relentless pursuit.
I totally loved Mila. As a Pallas cat, she is basically a crazy bitch. Her no bs- no drama, as well as her devil may care attitude was one of my favorite things about her. She was funny, snarky and totally bloodthirsty.
Dominic, who we knew to have a relaxed attitude towards everything that isn’t his pack, was actually one super sexy, possessive wolf. I absolutely loved getting to know him better while he shared his true self with Mila. He had everything I expected from an alpha hunky wolf… just FYI, the corny pickup lines never stop.
With action, intrigue, super-hot sexiness, and some new characters I can’t wait to know more of, along with time spent with the Phoenix Pack wolves, this was a bittersweet read. I’m not really ready for this awesome series to end, but Untamed Delights is one hell of a book.
Rating: 5 “was the butt sex really necessary at 99% mark of the book?” Stars
The last book in one of my favorite series, I was a bit down before I even started reading. Thank goodness Dominic is still ridiculous and had me cracking up almost immediately. I expected Dom’s pack mates to give him a lot more crap than they did once he’d found his woman, but I’m thrilled they didn’t kill him because of all those cheesy pickup lines aimed at their wives. Why? Because Dominic was amazing. And alpha-intense. And did I mention he was freaking hot?
Dominic may not have gotten his fated mate, but he got the perfect one for him. I loved Mila and her pragmatic outlook on life. She was laid back and level-headed which is exactly what Dominic needed. Plus, she was a Pallas cat and they fascinate me. If there were such things as shifters in this world, I know that’s what I’d want to be.
Dominic and Mila had danger nipping at them from every corner and with so many possible perpetrators, it was next to impossible to guess who targeted them and why. Well, one was obvious, that being Dominic’s past slightly man-whorish ways coming back to bite him in the ass. But the other issue was a guessing game that I had a lot of fun trying to figure out. I do have to say, when the shit hit the fan at the end, the suspense and danger had me at the edge of my seat and my heart in my throat.
As the book wound down and I knew my time being fully immersed in the Phoenix Pack was coming to an end, I found myself reading slower and slower. I turned that last page fully satisfied after reading a great book but heartbroken that it was over. The only thing soothing the sting is that I know I’ll see them in Shards of Frost, the (insert huge sob here) last Mercury Pack book, but also in the future Olympus Pride Series which means a whole series with Pallas Cats. I can’t freaking wait!!!!
