*explicit content*
Hope has managed to avoid romantic relationships ever since her crazy ex attacked her and her boyfriend at the time. She feels a distinct pull to Elijah and tries her best to avoid him, but Elijah is determined to claim her as his true mate. He can not quite place what she is and Hope has no clue of the world she has been dumped in to.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Wow, just wow

This book has so many elements of the wow factor that it’s hard to describe. Starting off with a “Human” woman (Hope Pippa) that due to a past experience with an old flame doesn’t want to trust herself to another relationship in fear said old flame will kill anyone who get close to her. When she finds out he’s been released from the mental facility things get worse. We have her best friend who’s a wolf shifter, but Hope doesn’t know anything about the “Others” of the world. The we have Elijah who is who is a Tiger shifter and Hope is his true mate. The two have been doing a flirting dance for a year now. And then back to Hope who has no Idea that she herself is an “Other” but not even Elijah knows what she is. We do find out and that’s when a whole world of action starts to happen. This may be a self-contained story but I can’t wait to read the next to find out what happens. This is a very well written and extremely entertaining story to read. High praises to the author and job well done.
