Cat shifter Bree Dwyer doesn't fear much. Ironically, what she fears most is the person who was put on the Earth just for her. Your true mate wasn't supposed to be cruel and twisted; wasn't supposed to be someone who’d never love or want to claim you. The rumors that her true mate is dead bring her only relief. Bree's intent on moving forward with her life and building a future with someone else. Sadly, the male she wants most is one she can never have—a hot-as-sin wolverine shifter who happens to be her boss … and the cousin of her predestined mate.
Aleksandr “Alex” Devereaux detests being bullshitted, but he’s been lying to himself for years—pretending he thinks of Bree as extended family; that he doesn't want her so bad he aches with it; that he can't feel himself weakening against her pull. The night they spend together changes everything. He's done fighting himself on what he wants. Someone isn't happy about that. Possibly the same 'someone' who's playing mind games with Bree, trying to scare her. They're succeeding, because too many leads point to the possibility that the culprit could be the one person that she's determined to believe is dead.
OMG, did I ever need this book. Seriously. I was at my wit’s end and stressed out. Books were failing me left and right. I mean, who would have ever thought things would go so crazy, I’d be too distracted to get into a good book. But it happened. And it sucked. So I owe a huge thank you to Ms. Wright because she saved me from my version of hell.
The minute I opened up When He’s Dark and started reading it I was hooked. Alex was just the super sexy, hot, broody, alpha-hole I needed. And Bree was the perfect heroine. She was kickass in her own right, smart, funny and totally capable but willing to step back and let her man take care of business when he needed to. I mean, I couldn’t have ordered up a more perfect book to break me out of my world pandemic induced book depression.
I loved how Alex and Bree were so down to earth with each other. There were no overly flowery declarations of love here, so when one said something profound, it meant something. Once Alex got his head out of his ass and decided to go for Bree, there was never any doubt about the relationship between them. I freaking loved that. And holy cow, this couple had some serious chemistry that burned up the pages.
If shifters were a real thing, I’ve said I would want to be a pallas cat since they are just so freaking cool and badass. But, I may have to change my mind and go with a wolverine. I loved spending time with Alex’s animal and his mother and brothers. They had me cracking up constantly, and they were scary as hell at the same time. Everyone respected the wolverines, even if they drove them crazy with their constant need to break into places just for fun.
When He’s Dark is the first book in a brand new series and its set in the same world as the Phoenix and Mercury Pack series. Because of this, the book felt comfortable and familiar, like coming home really. It had all sorts of the action I crave, a mystery or two to keep my mind engaged, and enough heat to light my iPad on fire. It was exactly what I needed. Perfect really. So if you read this, thank you Ms. Wright. I owe you big time.
