Story Overview:
At eighteen, Melissa seduced her best friend Julia's brother only to run away shortly after. While Daniel was her fairytale prince, Lissa didn’t believe in happy ever afters.

Ten years and a near death experience later, Lissa is ready for a husband and family. But a cry for help from Julia puts that dream on hold. Daniel is acting weird and he’s about to marry his long term girlfriend—AKA The Evil One. Someone needs to save him.

Daniel has never stopped loving Lissa. Ten years ago when he gave her a little freedom, he always intended that one day they would be together. Right up until the moment he was bitten by a werewolf. Now, Daniel has to hide what he is. He won’t risk anyone else, especially the woman he loves.

But Lissa is back. Their attraction is stronger than ever and Lissa is nothing if not tenacious.

My Review:
What a great set-up for a book. Ten years ago Daniel and Lissa had a magical night, but she was afraid to ever hope for more and ran away, off to save the world. But she just recovered from a case of malaria that almost killed her and the one thing that plagued her was the unfinished business between her and Daniel. So she's come home to close off that part of her life. What she's found instead is a stranger who although cold and unfeeling seems like he really needs her help. She thought she was over him, but as concerns press at her, she discovers that was just a lie she was telling herself to get by. 

Daniel knew Lissa was running and allowed her to do it, knowing that someday would be a better time for them. But before they ever got their chance, something awful happened to him. He's a brilliant scientist and chemist and a powerful alpha werewolf decided to exploit those talents and bit him to infect him with the disease. He's sees himself as a monster now and his only goal is to keep his family and Lissa safe from the other monsters that surround him. He's willing to do whatever he has to, include experiment on himself, to make sure that happens. 

I loved Daniel's character. I loved how strong he is and how protective he is and that he has a plan. He's smart and is working to make sure that those he loves will always be safe. The pull between him and Melissa even though he knows how danger it is, is a gorgeous thing. I loved how she soon realized there was MUCH more to what was happening with him than he let on and won't sit back and just let it happen. She may not be a shifter, but she's one tough chick who will fight for the man she loves. 

Everything about this story and the way it turned out was fabulous! It definitely provided a great groundwork for a series that I can get behind. I'm anxious to see what happens with the pack, Jason, and Sophia next. There was some great set-up here for more to come. I just hope it happens.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest.
