The Phoenix Pack, Book 7
Synopsis: 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.
Review: I was curious to discover this seventh volume and I must say that I am not disappointed, far from it!
This time it’s Trick’s turn to be featured and that’s how we follow a brand new heroine: Frankie. When she receives an email from her cousin who hopes to be able to reconnect with her so she can meet her aunt who is on her death bed, the young woman is a little lost. Even worse, she realizes that her family has been lying to her all her life. That the story she knew of her parents is not the truth. Finally, it seems that her father killed her mother to commit suicide later and that she was the only witness.
I really enjoyed the reunion with the pack, seeing that Frankie was slowly opening up to this family that she did not know. I was also very curious to find out what exactly happened with her parents and I admit that I found that the turn was well found. The relationship with her human family who does not accept her wolf side was also very interesting and I really had a good time with the story. And what about Trick? He is very patient with her even if it is not necessarily simple at first for him and I found it nice to see them evolve together.
A new novel with a good story and I had a great time once again.
