Pulling off a rescue mission at a remote castle in Scotland should be an easy task for lone wolf Damon Black. He’ll flash some muscle, show a little Alpha power, and do whatever it takes to ease Addie MacShay’s fears. But the woman who throws herself into his arms and cries boyfriend is more intriguing than anticipated. The sexy she-wolf’s got more curves, more tantalizing scent, more of everything he desires.
Addie’s job cataloguing an estate at the Sterling-Wylde Manor is complicated by the ongoing discovery of new wills and the two creepy heirs who won’t leave her alone. But her fake boyfriend turns out to be a far greater threat—not only is he fun and flirtatious, he looks delicious in a kilt. She craves his touch, but with her empathetic skills on overdrive, touch is the last thing she needs.
Damon’s fighting his unruly inner beast. Addie’s fighting their incredible sexual pull. They'll both have to lower their guard to make this more than a Highland fling.
Damon is helping his best friends wife out by going to Scotland and helping her best friend, Addie, feel safe. She’s doing inventory on an estate and the brothers that are both vying for ownership of the property are creeping her out.
Damon shows up and immediately Addie is kissing him and calling him her boyfriend. Ok, he understands that that explains to the Sterling-Wylde brothers what he’s doing there. He manages to keep Addie safe and discovers a few things about the estate as well. He also discovers his attraction to Addie and her to him. Addie has an issue, however, in that she’s the daughter of two Omega wolves and that left her with an empathic ability every time she touches someone’s skin. For some reason it doesn’t happen with Damon and they’re both shocked when they found out the reason.
This was a quick, fun read. Nothing too dastardly or angsty happens during the course of the story and I really appreciated that. Yes, Damon had some dark memories from his past but Arend didn’t dwell on them so it made the book a bit lighter.
Damon and Addie were great together and the sex between them was scorching hot. I haven’t read the other Takhini Shifter book but I definitely think I’ll be picking that one up.
Rating: 3.5 out of 5
