What he doesn't realise is that Bria is sick of being treated like a prized possession by her family and she has no intention of letting her mate do exactly the same thing. She may have been sheltered but she knows exactly what she wants and needs and that's the freedom to be herself and to explore the world around her, she spent her whole life trapped in a gilded cage by her uncle and she never wants to feel that way again. What she wants from her mate is a man she can share love and passion with but also someone who will treat her like an equal in every way. She is sick of being seen as weak and she's determined to stand on her own two feet for once. I really liked how strong Bria was, she stands up to Jenner when she needs to and she won't let him intimidate her with his caveman routine.
These two make a great couple, Jenner has very good reasons for being worried about hurting Bria but she knows him better than he knows himself. She can see exactly what he needs and she's not afraid to let him have it. Jenner was the right amount of protective alpha mixed with attentive and adoring lover, it took Bria a long time to break through his walls but once she did there was no stopping him! This was definitely the hottest book of the series so far but I love that Kate Baxter really takes time to develop the emotional connection between the couple alongside the physical one.
I'm really enjoying seeing where this series is going, it has similarities with several other popular paranormal romance series but enough differences to stand out from the crowd in it's own right. I'm a little nervous that the next book might end up being about Siobhan and Christian but I'm hoping I'll be proved wrong on that since I'm not much of a fan of either of their characters. I really want to see more of Chelle, Lucas and Saeed though so I'm hoping we'll get on of their stories next and Siobhan can continue to have her story told in the background of each book. Either way I'll definitely be continuing this series, I'm enjoying the world and I want to see what happens to the characters I already love as well as the ones we're only just being introduced to.

Bria was brought up being extremely sheltered for her own safety, but she craved the outside world and would sneak out to escape the confines of her coven, not knowing the dangers lurking. There is an uprising to eradicate the dhampir covens and Bria is near death and is brought to the Vampire King to be saved. Bria is turned from a dhampir to a vampire. This is where it really gets interesting!!
Eric Jenner (goes by Jenner) is passionate in all things and the ultimate consumer of sex, blood, and danger. He does not trust himself because of unfortunate circumstances as a young dhampir dealing with bloodlust. He is made out to be out of control and he lives that role to the fullest. He is an enforcer for the King and upon his entrance to the Kings home, he is hit with bloodlust and the possessive “mine” feeling in his guts. He is immediately tethered to Bria as she is to him. They have a bond that is immediate and absolute. Jenner wants to consume Bria sexually and take blood from her vein, but he doesn’t trust himself with her, for he fears he will destroy her.
Bria and Jenner have power struggles and growing pains as a couple. Their chemistry is off the charts! At times I was so angry at Jenner for not trusting his mate, but I could see it from his viewpoint as she was the love of his life and he needed to protect her at all costs. There are family dynamics involved, there is a bit of betrayal and lots of intrigue and secrets. Jenner grows to find his mate is just as much his equal and is stronger than he ever could have imagined.
If you love a good love story, broody vampires and strong heroines then this is the book for you. I highly recommend you give it try!
