Back Cover Blurb:
Carter Chase knows Ruby is his mate, and he'd do anything for her. Except she's practically allergic to asking for help of any kind. Ruby willingly submits in his bedroom, but in public she pretends there's nothing between them. Carter's lion is ready to tear the city apart to prove their devotion, but when Ruby thinks he interferes with the rival wolf pack, she walks away for good.
Ruby knows she's meant to be with Carter. She aches for him. But she's worked her entire life to be alpha, and she won't give that up. Even for true love. Can she relinquish enough control, and trust him enough, to cut to the chase and find their happily ever after?
I loved the dynamic between the main characters in this novel. It was such an ever-changing thing that you could really feel the realism on top. Powerplay and equality both play an important role. The supporting characters were also a lot of fun to get to know. This is one of those novels that can easily be read on its own but for the full context on all of the supporting characters and their pasts, the previous novels in the series would come in handy.
As a whole, this was a very enjoyable read. It has definitely sparked my interest in this series & this author’s work at large.
