There is something to be said about wolf shifter romances. I love how in most packs the mate is loved, protected, defended, and bonded to make them stronger. This was a beautifully written book with a lot of action and there are definitely some trigger warnings, such as abuse and rape. I never thought I could get through reading about it after past experiences but this author definitely knows how to write the protective male and the villain male.
Jason was thought out and written so beautifully as the main male character in the story. He is everything we know an Alpha prince should be and more. He is kind, helpful to the servants, and treats people with respect. After learning about his father it is hard to imagine how he was raised to be this way. Lily, our female main character, is a servant in the pack household, just a normal weak human. That is until her paths cross with our villain and Jason, now her life has been upended and she feels like nothing more than entertainment for the king and his pack. Can Jason make Lily trust him and the mate bond despite the horrific things she had to endure? Can Jason protect his mate at all costs including some with a very high price?
This book was a knock down drag out fight from page one. I loved Lily, Jason, Amara, Dean, and Laura all characters featured prominently. Then I despised the king and Callum, for the way they treat their people including those they say are their mates. As the story unfolds you are hit with twist after twist that leaves you guessing on who exactly will make it out on top. That is what ultimately makes this a fantastic read. If you like shifter romances packed with action you need to read this book, I read it in about 2 hours because it is simply that good.
