Review:***I received this arc courtesy of Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review***I have been anticipating this release for ages! I absolutely adore Suzanne Wrights shifter novels, they are definitely a guilty pleasure for me. Suzanne Wright has a way with words and I find myself captivated from the first page. One thing that I wish there was a bit more of is Frankie bonding with the rest of the pack as I found it a bit lacking and she was meant to be best friends with Jamie when she was younger yet I think they had one scene together.My Favourite character in this series has to be Dominic, his pick up lines are the best and never fail to make me laugh. I cannot wait for his book and how he will find his true mate. That book is going to be epic.Unlike in the previous books in the series Trick new as soon as he saw Frankie that they were mates, while it took Frankie a little longer to figure out. I loved that they didn't jump straight into claiming each other but instead they took the time to get to know one another and go on dates.
I know that the books in this series have a similar outline with the sassy, confident heroine and the brooding alpha male. Either one or both have something blocking the mating frequency so they don't know that they are true mates. Greta hates the Heroine because they are trying to "steal her boys away". Even with all these things being similar I can't seem to get enough of them, there is something addictive about these books that I can't explain.
I did find that the murder of Frankie's parents was a bit predictable but I still enjoyed it none the less. I think thats the thing that bothered me most because I like a challenge in figuring out a murder mystery, it's what makes it more fun. Especially when it is unexpected.
This wasn't my favourite of the series but I still really enjoyed it. If you like shifter romance then I definitely recommend this series as well as the spin off series the mercury wolves. If you are going to read this series I do recommend reading Feral Sins first but you can read them all as stand alone's.
