When half–wolf shifter Frankie Newman receives an e-mail from a family member she didn’t know existed, a secret is revealed: as a child, Frankie witnessed her father killing her mother…and then himself. Frankie was torn from her pack by her mother’s human relatives, and the trauma was erased from her memory. Realizing that she’s been lied to her entire life, she’s never felt more alone. Until she catches the scent of an old friend—warmly familiar and intoxicating.
Trick Hardy, enforcer of the Phoenix Pack, can sense the rush of mutual attraction when he sees Frankie again. He knows immediately that she’s his true mate. But he also knows that, given her fragile state, he needs to tread with care—no matter how fierce his surging desires.
As aroused as Frankie is by Trick’s darkly dominant air and simmering desire, her priority right now is her past—not her future, no matter how tempting. But as more secrets emerge and Frankie’s life is threatened, Trick must do everything he can to keep her close and safe. After all, it’s their destiny.
Ever since I grabbed up “Feral Sins” many years ago, I fell in love with this series and this author. There is so much fun snarky humor and sexy times and great plots in each of the books that I can never resist grabbing them up. And I was so thrilled to see that I had the chance to read “Wild Hunger” and I have been waiting for Trick’s book for quite some time now and I am so glad that Wright has finally written this long anticipated story and it was well worth the wait.
What I admire most about this series are the characters….they are so passionate and strong willed and determined to make a good life for themselves. Even characters that are more submissive in nature, have their own courage and strengths that are admirable. In Wild Hunger, we have a story of bringing in a lost member back into the fold. Frankie was a young child when she lost her parents when her father killed her mother and then killed himself. She has no memory of the event or those that were her friends and family. She has lived with her maternal grandparents ever since and they have kept her isolated from the pack ever since. But when a fellow pack mate from the Phoenix Pack…Lydia reaches out to her, she wants to know more about her past and the family she has never known. She reconnects with old members including a sexy male…Trick, who always has her back and one she has a unique connection to.
I found myself simply in love with this story and the unfolding mystery behind the deaths of Frankie’s parents. And wow this author blew me away with this ending, not what I was expecting at all but I do love that about Wright is when I think I have everything in the story figured out she tosses me another wrinkle that is so unexpected and keeps me on my toes. And I found the romance in this story to be so REFRESHING. The hero especially, once he meets Frankie, he knows that she is his mate and more than ready to claim her but he does take it slowly with her. This story had me laughing so hard and I love the humor that Wright places in her stories, they just always seem to work for me.
An engaging, intense filled plot that will keep you guessing and will have you on the edge of your seat in ways you don’t expect….PROVOKING!!
