As she hunts for a drug lord killing her fellow witches, all Nessa Lansa’s instincts point to the Grizzly motorcycle club. That might be because their leader, Bear, is the strong, silent shifter type: warm brown eyes and more muscle and alpha male than any woman can ignore. Which makes Nessa’s plan to seduce and betray him all the more dangerous . . .
Bear doesn’t trust the curvy, blue-eyed witch. But Nessa can heal the injuries that sap his strength. And since he can’t stop thinking of her lush body and teasing smile, her plan to mate him to reclaim her own power is highly tempting. Just one problem. Once a desire this wild is loose, no one will ever control it . .
Okay, so this series, whilst holding its own and bringing to life the Witches of Coven 9, still manages to showcase favourites from the Dark Protectors series as they work to get the Apollo drug off the streets. Bear has never wanted to get drawn in but as the grizzly Alpha somehow, he keeps getting dragged in and recently he's exhausted his body to the point that he's in danger of losing not just his ability to shift but his life. Well, who should turn up but Witch and former Council member Nessa; but she's exactly what Bear despises about the Witch nation as she's deceiving him whilst seemingly has a proposition for him. The chemistry is incendiary between them but Bear knows better than to trust a Witch and believe me, Nessa has a secret that will blow Bear’s mind!
Such a wonderful twisting plot that just keeps building until, as a reader, it's impossible to guess what will happen next. This couple is Hot with a capital H and I loved that no matter what, Nessa never gave in and challenged Bear constantly. Yet, Nessa can turn on a dime and you never quite know what to expect from this very tricky not to forget crafty Witch!
Old favourites make appearances and there's such glorious humour as the King is constantly underestimated, yes, never forget that he is the King! For now, though it's all about Bear and as he pulls out all the stops to protect Nessa, he has a few surprises of his own to share! Yes, this wraps the Apollo storyline up in style but I can't help wishing these fun characters will make a return at some point.
This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from NetGalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair.
