Untamed, A Review for the Blog Tea and Book,
This review is from: Untamed (The Amoveo Legend) (Mass Market Paperback)
Book Three of Sara Humphreys Amoveo Legend Series takes us out of the Bayou and into rural Maryland. Where we find that it's not all small town hicks.. (please people don't think this is a dig on small towns as I am currently looking for the perfect small town to move to) This book shows the sultry side of the south..
William Fluery, the oh so sexy man in control. Everyone knows that when William is around he is in control. An attorney for the Council, a man in a brooks brothers suit (ok doesn't that just scream to you.. rip his clothes off?) William is cold, calculating and the go to man whenever a friend is in need. Seriously, is anyone but me totally in lust?
Layla Nickelsen, lives by the seat of her pants. Raised in foster care until she was 12 Layla has definite trust issues. Her loyalty is to those she considers family, Her foster mother Rosie and her "siblings" Raife and Tati.. When they met at 12 an instant family was made. Three hybrid Amoveos with nothing to teach them who they are except a secret diary left by the twins mother and Rosie's sister. Layla, is determined to run her own life and not be forced by fate to mate with some man. Not to become so absorbed by him that she looses her self but most importantly that no one decides what is going to happen in her life but herself.
This book was a meeting of the proverbial rock and hard place.. William, the rock.. an Amoveo male determined to claim his mate. He has found her she should be thrilled and willing to all but fall into his hands.. and Layla the hard place.. the free spirit who won't let anything define her accept herself. The woman who actually fights fate. It is fun to see William fall.. after all he needs to convince her that they fit.. The sensual pull between these two is amazing. While they can't seem to agree on the color of the sky, their chemistry is off the chart.
While trying to convince his mate that they fit, William discovers a plot that could destroy everything they are building. After reading the first two books I was sure I had all the answers but Ms Humphreys managed to pull of some pretty good surprises.. as well as offering us teases into the lives of the Amoveo.
Layla, had always felt like a failure because Raife and Tati had been able to shift and she hadn't.. it was an interesting concept that in reality they were the "freaks" because until then Hybrids couldn't shift until they met their mates.. I am sure this will be an important detail in later books.. I read this book first as a netgalley read.. and fell so hard for it that I had to rush out and get the rest of the series.. It is compelling, intriguing, entertaining and oh so tantalizing.. It is a definite must read!!
