Mechanic Laney St. Clair doesn’t want much in life. All she wants is to run her father’s garage as she sees fit, her brothers to stop treating her like she is still their baby sister, and for Heath Marsterson to realise that under all the grease and overalls she is a grown woman, ready, willing, and able to show him just how talented her hands can be.

Heath’s an alpha shifter who knows he needs a mate to help him rule. A strong woman who can stand with him and up to him when needed, a woman who can help keep his pack safe. What he doesn’t need is a fragile human whose family protects her as if she’s made of spun glass. No matter how persuasive little Laney-girl tries to be or how much he wants her, Heath knows she’ll never be strong enough to handle his true self no matter what she says, moans, screams…(Goodreads)

Review- Every now and then you come across a book that within the first page you just know it’s good, and then you get to the end and say “Yep, that’s it, that is why I read books.” I am a sucker for a paranormal romance that has just enough sexy details to make it steamy, but doesn’t go overboard and make it smut. Ms. Cherie Nicholls and I must be on the same wave length because this book has become a favorite, and quite possibly one I will compare other books too in the future.

Let’s start with characters. Heath (fan myself) Oh wait, I mean Alpha. He is the ultimate wolf-boy of my fantasy land. Dominate, sexy as hell, and knows how to flirt and please his woman…need I say more! Laney is who I can aspire to be in my alternate life (hehe). A strong independent woman, often underestimated, but goes after what she wants, whenever she wants it.

The one thing I would ever change about this book is the blurb, and maybe the cover art (I know that is two things), but honestly it suggests and depicts more smut content. The sexual scenes have some details, but nothing overboard, and there aren’t a whole lot of them. So don’t let those details deter you from reading this incredibly addictive book….and by addictive I mean, I skipped watching one of my favorite shows so I didn’t have to put this book down!

This is book one in this new series, but there was no cliffhanger on Heath and Laney’s romance which suggests one (or more) of the secondary characters will step into the spotlight. Hmmm might Clara and Wall be the next installment…I can’t wait!  

This book is definitely going on my reread list and I will be watching for new work from Ms. Cherie Nicholls. LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!
