Blurb: What has she done? With a new identity, a staged death, and a chance to flee the treachery that stalks her, Rachael has escaped from a faceless assassin. Now, thousands of miles from home, under the lush canopy of the rain forest, she’s found sanctuary.
Where can she hide? In this world teaming with unusual creatures walks the most exotic of them all. His name is Rio. A native of the forest imbued with a fierce prowess, he is something to be desired. Possessed of secrets of his own, he is something to be feared.
Whom can she trust? But as Rachael’s past looms as oppressively as the heat of the forest, and as Rio unleashes the secret animal instincts that course through his blood, Rachael fears that her isolated haven has become an inescapable hell…
Review: Such a good book but I did catch something that I didn’t catch when I’ve read this book over and over again through the years. Rio either did not know about the nine lives things or he thought it was a myth and I don’t know if it was the whole one true mate thing he thought was a myth or the past lives.
Thinking about it, I really don’t recall anyone being ‘new’ but, I think it’ll be fun to find out and I really think my reviewing allowed me to catch that important tidbit.
It was a bit repetitive but for what the story was about, it worked out quite well. It wasn’t just what they felt for each other that was being repeated over and over again, that would have made it boring; it was Racheal trying to deal with her family issues while trying to come to terms with having a mate, that she was a shifter and living as normal a life as shifters can, same with Rio.
The cover is eye-catching, with a little eye-candy for the appropriate readers when you open it up in paperback, the writing is amazing and really just hooks the audience. The pace is excellent for the plot, the flow of the story is steady and the book is full of emotion. I could feel my eyes burning at some places.
Thank you for reading my review.
