Beta werewolf Declan Schroder knows Rachel Gentry is his mate. The hard-as-nails female is more than he could ask for—intense, clever and sexy as sin. There’s only one problem. Rachel is human and fears his kind. She’s receptive to his advances—their sexual chemistry is impossible to deny—until an attack by a rogue werewolf threatens to destroy their newfound bond.
As Declan’s mating heat rises, he knows he’ll do whatever it takes to claim Rachel as his own. To keep her he’ll have to love her from dusk to dawn, introducing her to pleasures she’s never known. Loving a big, bad wolf is wicked and dangerous, but not in the way she’s bound to regret.

Rachel has been afraid of the supernaturals since her fathers death. Her mother has always told her terrible stories about them and has made her fear what she doesn’t know. Since then she has avoided them at all cost. But when her best friend turns out to be a werewolf she is pushed into the path of Declan, the Beta of the pack and her destined mate.
Declan is very sweet, funny and devoted to Rachel. He wants to make her happy so he does his best to treat her like a queen once he gets her to stop fighting him about everything. It was nice to see him pushing for the relationship whereas Rachel just wanted to avoid him at all costs. I wish we could have had more of them without all the pack drama. It seemed that their relationship would often get pushed to the back burner when the pack needed them.
There was a nice build up of the sexual tension between Declan and Rachel that was fun to read. I liked how things would interrupt them or Declan would wait thinking that Rachel wasn’t ready. When they do have sexy scenes they are really hot and often creative. Declan was also very romantic and loving with Rachel even when he was ‘rough’ with her. There was always this underlining love and affection for her that made all his actions seem sweet.
This is the second book in the series and while it is a stand alone, it would be best read in order. You meet pretty much all of the characters in book 1 Marked, which is based on Rachel’s best friend and the Alpha of the pack. It is also in that book that Rachel and Declan meet. There is also some world building and background given on character’s that is helpful when you read this book.
Just as a heads up, there is a pretty big teaser for the next book and I am very excited about it. I don’t know a release date or title but I am hoping soon.
