The golden rule of shallow flings is not to get attached, right? Well, Havana Ramos broke it. Big time. There’s just something about Tate Devereaux that pulls at her. Assertive, compelling, and self-assured, the Alpha cat shifter pushes every one of her best buttons. Like really, really hard. Having overheard an enlightening conversation, she knows he won’t give her more than a fling—something, to be fair, he’d told her well in advance. If she doesn’t want her heart to get bruised, it’s time to end what little they have. It’s not like he’ll care or anything. Except … it turns out that he does.
Newly-appointed Alpha Tate Devereaux is never bothered when women walk away. He can’t exactly blame them, given his distrustful cat’s habit of withdrawing from relationships. But when lone shifter Havana ends their fling, everything within Tate rebels against it—including his cat. Even as she and Tate work together to crush the threat looming over her, Havana holds him at arms’ length. But if she thinks she can end their fling with no real explanation and that he’ll just tip his hat and walk away, she’s forgotten one very important thing—there’s nothing easy about shaking off an Alpha.
When I dive into a book by Ms. Wright, I have no doubt that I’m going to get a hot, sexy, alphahole for a hero and a badass heroine who can stand beside her man and hold her own not only with him but with the bad guys, too. I’m also going to laugh my ass off along the way. Needless to say, once again, Ms. Wright came through.
I had a grand time reading When He’s An Alpha. Tate was pretty dang clueless at first and I wanted to dropkick him into next week. It’s good I can get past a lot of things for an alpha male hero with a dirty mouth who knows how to use it. Havana is a lucky, lucky girl—’nuff said.
Speaking of Havana, I loved her and her band of merry misfits. They were so much fun to read! She’s a loner but she’s far from alone. And her friends are so crazy, they’re certifiable but in a fun yet slightly homicidal way. I thought I’d want to be a pallas cat if I was a shifter, but then I leaned toward wolverine. But Suzanne has given us new species to chew on. We’ve got bear cats, black mambas and Tasmanian devils. I’m leaning towards a bear cat now. She’s adorable and loves kids, but is a holy terror with everyone else. That’s my kind of shifter!
Suzanne Wright does seem to follow a formula with her shifter books. In fact, this particular bad guy was pretty close to some others in the Phoenix or Mercury Pack series books. Not that I minded one bit as these books are just that good. Between the Phoenix, Mercury and now Olympia pack books we are sixteen books in and I am still loving it to the point I’m already looking forward to the next one. The sizzling heat, the action, and the gut-busting humor draws me in every time. And now I’m off to research bear cats…
