Her life for the past year has not been pleasant and suddenly turns for the worse when she’s noticed by a few wolves, the Prince himself included. She lives through a harrowing experience to find out that she’s the Prince’s mate. Jason is the next in line for the throne and is currently living under his father’s thumb biding his time until he can take over. A chance encounter allows him to find his mate but she’s one of the human slaves. Can these two overcome circumstances to have their happily ever after?
The story was good but I found that it had a few issues. The story felt rushed to me. There were a lot of sub plots which I’m sure we’re set ups for the rest of the series . To me they were more interesting than the plot of this book. I loved Jason and Dean. The characters interacted well and I enjoyed their banter. I had a hard time connecting to Lily though. One minute she’s weak and lacking confidence, the next she’s strong and snarky. She kept flipping back and forth between the two as if the author couldn’t decide how she wanted this character to be. I think Lily has a lot of potential as well as the story so I will be reading the next book in the series.
