MY REVIEW
Summary:
Storme, has been on the run since she was fourteen years old, when her father and brother were viciously killed by breeds, she has been determined to make sure that what they are after now will never fall into their hands. But while she is on the run, she ends up being saved by Styx, who is wolf breed, but then she feels betrayed after a night of pleasure to be in the hands on Jonas and the other breeds who only want whats on a data chip, and are more determined than ever to get their hands on it. Styx knows where his loyalties lie, but after being with Storm, he knows that she is his mate, even though the bonding scent isn’t fully there, but finds himself choosing between his loyalty to the Breeds or the one woman who makes him feel clean and whole….

The Hero (Styx Mackenzie)
 Styx Mackenzie, as a Wolf Breed has suffered just as much pain and torture as his brethren have, and having freedom and being able to make a life for himself. From the first moment he touched Storm he knew he was lost, and that he would do everything to protect her and keep her safe from those that would do her harm. Even though his mission is to get the location of the data chip, his loyalties start to become divided when he starts to come to the knowledge that Storm is his mate and will do all he can to prove it and make sure to protect her both from herself and those that see her only as a prisoner and a pawn….

Having been on the run ever since she trusts no one until she gets rescued by Styx and she knows that she must defend her heart from his advances because she fears losing herself if she falls in love with the sexy breed who is very different than any other breed she has known, and before she realizes it she wonders if she could ever fully escape from him when she craves to just be in his arms….


My Thoughts 
Styx’s Storm is the  22nd installment in the Breeds Series by Lora Leigh. I have just loved reading this series, and I have looked forward to reading Styx’s storm since it first came out and I am so glad to have finally gotten my hands on it… Styx’s Storm is a exhilarting ride of adventure, passion, and love. I found both the characters enlightening…both stubborn as ox, but both feel a connection to each other, and are unable to resist the sensual heat they feel, and they become swept up in the desire and soon they start to fall in love with each other, and such a beautifully written tale of how love can conquer fear, and a painful past. A heartwrenching story that will leave you breathless!!! A Unforgettable Read!!!!

My Favorite Quote 
A new beginning. Storme stared back at her lover. Her mate. The man who had wiped away the fear, the misunderstandings. The man that loved her. His hand lifted, the backs of his fingers smoothing her cheek. “My perfect storm,” he whispered. And he was her Styx. Her Heart.
