REVIEW BY ELLE
Oh Oh… I remember this one very well. I almost DNF!
How much I HATE NICK!!! Plain and simple.
After he ‘throws’ Shaya not he wants her back because it droves him crazy?! Puhleaseee… I don’t feel any dominant and alpha vibe around Nick. I couldn’t connect with his character. Even when the sexy times. Sigh.
Shaya moves into another town is very understandable. Even she’s submissive wolf and half human, she has strong aura and snarky attitude. Determined and doesn’t give up. Well, until Nick come many times to ‘stake’ his claim. With the seduction in action, Shaya couldn’t resist Nick but she’s not stupid. But their interaction bored me until half the book. It’s too much for someone whose in denial. Even I dislike Nick, Shaya turns to irritated me.
“I know I fucked up. I’ve said I’m sorry for hurting you; I meant it. I promised you that I wouldn’t let you down again; I meant it. You might not believe that right now, but you will in time— I won’t have it any other way. You’re mine, and I refuse to live my life without you in it.”
How Nick trying to get in her heart (and panties) and now Shaya’s turn to bitch mode. The drama, ugh. The sweaty sex finally happened after… what? I don’t remember. Please less talking and more actions. The things are keep me going is the new conflict and new friends. The ghost of their past is back. Nick and his loyal ‘follower’, Darren has to face new threats. I liked their new challenge outside the wolf pack. The extremist is human community that hate were so much. They’re very dangerous. Even though I have issue with the MCs, Carnal Secrets still have redeemable points. The side characters are more interesting, though.
