The Moon Shifter series by Katie Reus continues to get better and better. Each book I read pulls me in and keeps me there until reality sucks me back out. I love how lost in the stories I get with these books. Hunter Reborn, the 6th novel in the series is no different. Katie does a fabulous job of creating individual characters with their own stories while maintaining the flow of the overall series plot.
In Hunter Reborn, we get to watch Aiden (lupine shifter) and Larissa (kickass vamp) find each other again. Aiden believed Larissa was dead many years prior to the setting of the story and Larissa has no memory of what happened. Watching the two of them connect and learn about each other again was so heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. Especially as we learn what really happened all those years ago to force them apart. The romance between the two of them was very believable in my opinion given the storyline. Katie does a fantastic job of building relationships and writing intimate scenes that fit the story and the characters. I loved how this one played out. Something very endearing to me in Hunter Reborn was that even though Aiden is a strong wolf and by nature feels the need to protect his mate, he embraced Larissa’s strength and encouraged her. He did not hold her back but backed her up.
Loved. This. Book. Bound to Danger by Katie Reus is why I read romantic suspense. It is an emotional ride that will have you on the edge of your seat during the action scenes and your heart melting during the passionate ones. The plot engages you from the beginning and has you turning pages quickly. The only problem I had reading Bound to Danger is that sometimes the danger would get to a point that I didn’t want to go any further in the book out of fear for the characters, yet I had to find out what was going to happen.
In Bound to Danger, Cade works for the NSA and takes on a job involving Maria, a girl he fell for eight years prior, but hasn’t seen since. There is a lot of complicated history between them (well, not really, but Cade makes it complicated), so when Cade is assigned to protect Maria, it is quite intersting.
Intense. That is the first word that comes to mind for Avenger’s Heat by Katie Reus. I should have known from the title, but wow. Avenger’s Heat is the fourth book in Katie’s Moon Shifter series and continues the series with an engaging, emotional, romantic suspenseful story.
In Avenger’s Heat, we get to see the new Enforcer in action. Let me start out by saying that Erin Flynn is the Eve Dallas (J.D. Robb in Death Books) of the shifter world. Holy cow. Even though she is young and this is her first case, she shows intelligence, dedication, focus, and compassion to the women she is trying to save. Nothing is going to get in her way of completing her case, bringing the pregnant shifters home and those involved to justice.
It is always nice to come back home to Katie Reus’s Moon Shifter Series. His Untamed Desire is a novella in the series and sets up the next full length novel, Avenger’s Heat nicely. The entire series is phenomenal, so I suggest you start at the beginning, but you could read His Untamed Desire as a standalone if you wanted to since the characters are new. I do think that reading the series from the beginning gives the reader more understanding and makes the book more meaningful.
In His Untamed Desire we get to know feline shifter Hector and lupine shifter Daphne. They grew up with one another since Daphne is best friends with and Hector’s younger sister, Leta. Daphne has always had a crush on Hector, but he did not reciprocate. Well, time has passed, they have both grown up and are meeting again since Daphne went away to college.
I reviewed Midnight Alias over at Fresh Fiction. If you like dark romantic suspense, check this one out!
