Series: Blood Runner Book #1
Mason and his partner walk into a crowed coffee house and all he can scent is a woman - not just any woman but his true mate, a woman designed for him. Unable to control himself fully he needs her, wants her and just can't let her walk out of his life without a word, so he does the unthinkable and takes the woman down.
Torrance is down on the floor, her shirt spilled with soup and a hot as hell bad boy next to her asking if she's alright. Now this is slightly tricky, see Torrance has made up her mind about men, especially good looking men like this stranger, she won't turn into her mother and change boyfriends like shirts no matter how hot the shirt. She's determined to only accept the one man, her dream guy, who'll love her unconditionally and forever, one nightstand are out of the question.
It turns out bad guy is also little bit mental, telling her she has to follow him right away and get the hell out of dodge, thanks to the bustling coffee house she manages to escape, but she isn't out of the woods yet, before she knows she's being attacked by a sadistic, bent on eating humans, werewolf - and it turns out the coffee house nutjob hottie ain't quite so insane after all, more like a werewolf himself. And she's stuck between a war of sides.
Mason, wanting nothing more than Tory follows her tries to get her to see reason - that he is what she needs to survive, also he's quite set on getting her to bed as well, but that's all, he's not going to turn soft just because he's found his mate, he's not built for love, but he sure wants her - so imagine the fun that comes from her saying no. The uneasy couple has to come to terms in what exactly is their relationship and what do they want and what can they eventually have... does love make you weaker or stronger?
This book was so much fun to read, I was up late at night cause it just had such a fun story to read, action and blooming attraction and Mason trying to keep a lid on his emotions towards Tory, and Tory trying to fight getting too intimate with a werewolf for the protection of her heart.
This book just came out in Finland, and apparently has two more books coming out, one of the today, so yes I'll be picking that one up as well. ;) Great fun read, easy to finish in 24 hours!
