Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Romance, Sci-fi and Fantasy.
I’ve loved this series but did feel the last book felt a little slow, but for me this is back on track. Doc Jason’s twin Jared is the subject here, and when he meets Taryn Goldstone about a new contract, some decking at her house he realises she’s his Mate.
Taryn has issues though, as a Psychic with fire-starting talents she’s scared of hurting people so closes herself off. She adores her young son Charlie, but never touches him, never hugs him for fear of burning him. Her talent seems to be allied with strong emotion and she doesn’t have control, so avoids letting her emotions out. That’s why she gets nicknamed The Ice Queen.
As we get to know more of her and Charlie we can see she’s just in the right place, just where she needs to be, guided there by an unexpected source. The shocks and connections keep getting stronger, and I can see how the Pack is amassing people with the skills they’ll need if and when there’s a final head to head with Nero. As well as keeping her Pyro-kinesis a secret Taryn knows nothing of werewolves, so Jared has a hard task in front of him. He learns about her problems by accident and of course then he’s waiting for the right moment to tell her about himself. Its not only him he needs to tell her about too….Of course as always Nero are looking out for those with skills they can utilise, and they don’t ask politely but will use anything to force people to them. Jared needs to protect her and Charlie but how to protect someone when you can’t tell them everything yet, as they’ll think you need locking up. He has a plan to show her its all real but until then his family agree to keep it secret. What happens with those though? Yes, they always get released at just the wrong time!
There’s love and heated (!) emotions here, dangers once more from Nero, problems to overcome for not just Taryn but Jared too, and a wonderful boy, Charlie, to protect! Its a great read and one I really enjoyed, kept me gripped right through.
Stars: Five, a great instalment to the series.
