Despite having been besotted with Dante Garcea since she was a child, wolf shifter Jaime Farrow figures that it’s time to move past the crush. If he wanted her, he wouldn’t have ignored her flirtatious behavior, right? Hiding her intense attraction to him isn’t easy – especially now that they're part of the same pack again – but with bigger issues to worry about and with the submissive wolf act to maintain, Jaime is resolute on moving forward. Now if only the workaholic control-freak would let her…
As the pack Beta, Dante doesn't have the space or time in his life for a relationship. As such, he ignores his intense hunger for the willful – and sometimes crazy – Jaime. Yet when her flirtations abruptly end, Dante finds that he doesn’t like losing her attention. He finds something else too – Jaime's hiding something. Determined to uncover her secret, he sets out to break through her defenses, even though being around her intensifies his cravings for her. What he finds is a problem that Jaime is convinced not even a powerful Beta can solve.
Wicked Craving is the second book in the series, and I think I am torn if I liked this one better than the first. They have completely different set ups from beginning to end, but this story was packed with everything I love in a winning shifter romance. This author is definitely winning me over again and again. Now again I was able to obtain this one in audio format, and I am becoming hooked on this narrator. I love her voice and the way she portrays certain emotions to the listener. What we have here is a story of Dante (basically the beta, which means he is second in command to the alpha “Trey”). His mate is Jamie, who has always felt a connection to Dante, but knows that she can never take a mate because of emotional and psychological damage done to her wolf. Dante and Jamie were amazing together, they are equally matched, and tough as nails and equally spirited and sensual. I had the hardest time putting this story down, I was so captivated by the plot and the way that the characters were written in this story, I loved the teasing and playfulness, the sexy bedroom scenes that is hotter than hot, and the love story that is at the center of it all. Overall quite a winner for me, and I would highly recommend this to anyone that loves a sexy shifter romance to curl your toes!!
