Blurb: Luke’s been kicked in the teeth by fate enough to know: nice guys finish last. He’s done being nice and waiting for his due.
Finding Bethony, another potential Mate, was supposed to be his chance at a true Mate. However, she’s young and afraid and needs time to get to know him first. Bethony has different plans. She’s willing to Claim Luke, but only to stop her terrifying dreams; she’s not interested in love or romance.
The closer the pair get to the Compound, the deeper the danger becomes. Luke isn’t the only wolf looking for Bethi. He must choose between Bethi’s safety and peace of mind, or his dream of finding a true Mate.
Ok, I really expected to flove this book since Bethi’s character was my favorite in the series so far. But…this fell kinda flat for me. Don’t get me wrong I liked it a lot.
Like how it showed his vulnerability. He seemed so noble in the original. Refusing to allow her to claim him since she wasn’t attracted to him yet. Luke seems more relatable in this one since we know he still had the urges most males do. But it seemed he was just going through the motions sometimes to me. Or maybe I was getting tired of her ungratefulness towards him. That could have been it. I still love Emmitt the most right now.
In this one I saw Bethi as a bit too hard headed and stubborn. Acting like a martyr as opposed to just having a bad ass attitude. She came off as way more vulnerable, not as strong willed but kinda weak. Which for me became a total turn off for her character. I loved her for her determination and unwillingness to give up when the odds were stacked against her. She just seemed to give up more in this one, even though its the exact same story! Its a trip to see someone through the eyes of another character. It really changed my opinion of her.
I don’t really have anything left to add. I’m moving on to the next one. I hope to get a better view of Charlene since I never really liked her in her book.
