From the Back Cover
As his pack's second-in-command, lupine shifter Liam Armstrong gives orders and takes what he wants--until he meets red-headed, blue-eyed December McIntyre. Liam knows the human beauty is his intended mate the moment he sees her, but December is far too strong-willed to accept his protection.
December, whose brother is the town sheriff, has every reason to mistrust shifters after one killed her youngest sibling. But the forceful and handsome Liam has gotten under her skin in a way she hadn't thought possible, and the desire she feels for him is almost too much to bear.
When a radical hate group targets all humans known to sympathize with paranormal beings, December is attacked in her bookstore. Reluctantly, she turns to the only one who can help her: Liam. And he is going to take her to places within herself she never knew existed. --This text refers to the mass_market edition.

Those things being said, I thought the blurb for this story, book #2, sounded really interesting so I decided to give it a shot. I loved Liam and December (though her name is frankly ridiculous), but in my opinion, the two of them didn't get enough "air time" here. There were so many side stories going on, namely featuring Kat and Jayce, that it detracted from what could have been an outstanding story about Liam and December. Their relationship, which began in the first book of the series, really seemed underdeveloped and kind of rushed in some areas. This is another theme that I'm just not loving about this series, so I don't know if I'll continue with it. I have noticed that the author seems to like to develop a bunch of side stories to go along with the main one, and that is something that I generally just don't like. In order for that to work well, a book has to be REALLY long. If it isn't a long enough book, then all aspects of a multi-story line tend to become muddled and/or incomplete feeling. It was the incomplete factor that had me ultimately detracting a couple of stars from my rating. It just wasn't a five-star story, IMO.
I'll put the rest of this series on the back burner and will likely only purchase them if they become available at a significantly reduced rate.
Now let's talk about the characters. December is the sheriff's sister. Her brother has a hatred for all shifters since one of them not only nearly killed December but actually succeeded in killing their brother who was trying to save her. So his hatred and her weariness towards shifters goes way back. However, December cannot control her feelings for Liam, no matter how many times she tells him that she doesn't want anything to do with him. It doesn't help that any time that there's trouble, he's always right there rescuing her.
Liam is Connor's (previous book) brother. He's seen his brother get his heart broken and then scour the world looking for her. So he knows how hard it can be when you're mate is resistant. However, he's not going to give December an inch of room to even doubt him. Even if she doesn't want him in her life, he will make sure that he protects her at all costs.
These two characters were definitely interesting to read. Not to mention that we had Kat and her possible mate pop up a lot in this book. Kat was always hanging out with December and Liam and so you would see her quite a bit in the book. We also followed the villain in this book which is actually an entire organization of people who's goal it is is to remove not only shifters but the humans who associate with them as well. So with everything that takes place in this book, you were never bored while reading.
I love the world Katie Reus has built for this series. The idea of a world that is aware of paranormal beings is very intriguing and Reus's series is 20 years into this new discovery. I think it is very realistic that some individuals will feel threatened by shifters and vampires.
My only complaint is the story seems slow in the beginning, I realize it takes time to establish Liam and December's relationship, the growing APLs threat and progressing the overall story. However, once everything was set, the story flowed and I could not put down this book. It is a great story.
Character Thoughts: Liam's character is strong, definitely all alpha but at times shows a softer side with December and that makes him hot and sexy. December is feisty and stands up to Liam. I like a strong female character, I think they balance the alpha males. If anything, it keeps the boys on their toes.
We also learn more Kat and Jayce. Kat is a friend to December and Jayce is the North American enforcer. They have a story to tell, even though this is Liam/December's time to shine, Kat and Jayce are integral parts of this story. If I thought Liam was a strong alpha male, Jayce kicks that up a few knots.
Still holding on to him, she leaned close so that her mouth was close to his ear. His breathing was erratic and she knew he was close, but she wanted to him to come right then. Needed him to experience what she was feeling.
"Come for me, " she whispered. The words drew a wild, raw cry from him
Final Thoughts: I really liked this story. I was instantly drawn to Liam from the first story, the Alpha Instinct, and his story did not disappoint. I can't wait to read the next book. This is definitely a must read for any paranormal fan who loves shifters!
