by Lisa Kessler
Series: Moon, #4
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: September 28, 2015
Dr. Jason Ayers unleashes all of his rage and his frustration through fists and brute force in an underground boxing ring. The werewolf may be the pack’s doctor, but he can’t even heal his coma-stricken father after the Nero Organization’s attack stopped his heart. And as his Pack brothers settle down around him, he still refuses to believe in the fairy tale notion that every wolf has a true mate...
In hiding and on the run, nurse Kilani Akamu is a loose end that Nero is desperate to tie up. She can't afford to be attracted to a doctor—especially one as unexpectedly hot and complex as Jason. Yet the sexual sparks arcing between them are undeniable...and Kilani's precognitive senses warn her that temptation is inevitable.
All it takes is one touch to send Jason's wolf howling. But even if he could protect her from Nero, he can't protect her from himself…
Another great installment in the Moon Series by Lisa Kessler! Once again we are treated to a wonderful love story and given an additional layer to the Nero story arc.
I have to admit, Jason is one wolf that I really have not liked. He’s a jerk. He’s a hothead. I really haven’t found any redeeming qualities about him. So going into this book knowing I wasn’t a fan of the hero I knew this was going to be an interesting read. But as usual, Lisa Kessler works her magic, and I found myself liking Jason and wanting him to find his happy ever after. I can’t say he’s my favorite wolf, but watching him with Kilani and seeing a different side of him, and knowing that finding his mate has started to heal him, I have to say that Jason has found a spot in my heart.
Kilani was the perfect match for Jason. Strong and out spoken, ready to call Jason out when he needed it. I loved her background and loved learning about her family history. She’s got all sorts of baggage she’s dealing with, being on Nero’s hit list is just the most recent and perhaps the most deadly. Her trust issues run deep and long, and Jason has his work cut out for him.
One of my favorite things about this series is how the paranormal aspects are woven into the story. From werewolves to psychics, each book introduces paranormal elements but still manages to keep a realness to the story. I love that I end up getting caught up in the emotions of the story, feeling right along with the characters. Whether they are dealing with a supernatural issue or something that could happen to anyone, the emotion that surrounds each event is so real that it’s easy to believe that Lisa Kessler’s world really exists.
It was great to catch up with other members of the pack and meet some new characters that I hope we’ll get to see some more of, especially Kilani’s grandmother. I loved learning a bit more about Nero and having more of the blanks filled in when it comes to Sebastian.
Although this book can be read as a standalone I would recommend starting at the beginning and getting the whole wolf pack experience. Another must read from Lisa Kessler!
I received a copy of this book via NetGalley for an honest review.
