Despite having been besotted with Dante Garcea since she was a child, wolf shifter Jaime Farrow figures that it’s time to move past the crush. If he wanted her, he wouldn’t have ignored her flirtatious behavior, right? Hiding her intense attraction to him isn’t easy – especially now that they’re part of the same pack again – but with bigger issues to worry about and with the submissive wolf act to maintain, Jaime is resolute on moving forward. Now if only the workaholic control-freak would let her…
As the pack Beta, Dante doesn’t have the space or time in his life for a relationship. As such, he ignores his intense hunger for the willful – and sometimes crazy – Jaime. Yet when her flirtations abruptly end, Dante finds that he doesn’t like losing her attention. He finds something else too – Jaime’s hiding something. Determined to uncover her secret, he sets out to break through her defenses, even though being around her intensifies his cravings for her. What he finds is a problem that Jaime is convinced not even a powerful Beta can solve.
Werewolves are my all-time favorite, and books like this are the reason why. Wicked Cravings has a host of heat, reasons the hero and heroine shouldn’t be together and several people trying to keep them apart. The fact that even though they thought they weren’t true mates, they still wanted each other and only each other was what really had me pulling for this couple. Both were scared to bond, each for their own reasons, reasons they believed were valid.
Jaime is a beautiful woman whose wolf was traumatized when she was a child by the grizzly scene of her parents murder. She has to cage her wolf and hide its strength in order to fit into pack life. She’s just there to get her brother settled and then she’s leaving. She doesn’t want to endanger anyone, much less the pack she came to care for.
There are quite a few evil ones in this book. I really wanted to punch Laurie and think she got off WAY to easily. I think Jaime should’ve been able to challenge her. Tao pissed me off in this book as well. I hope he gets what’s coming to him when he finds his mate. Nick is another one I wanted to punch. And Glory and her crazy brothers go without saying.
This book had several twists and surprises. I’m so glad that Dante’ and Jaime finally got together. It’s amazing what a baby will do.
