Blurb: Crew Angel has always felt like the outcast and fears he will be treated differently if his deepest desires are uncovered. Haven has been the head of Storm’s guard for centuries and has just been reunited with his pride. One of the Underworld’s Legion Warriors, Laylen, is a daredevil that loves to live on the edge. When the three meet, they find that when it comes to the bedroom, they all share the same needs and desires.

When Crew falls prey to a mysterious illness, the pack finds that they cannot help him because Crew has actually been possessed by an evil being. During a bank robbery Haven gets shot and Crew gets taken hostage. The two bandits then make the biggest mistake of their lives by bringing Crew to his home to hide out from the authorities. What they find in the house in the woods is something neither of them could have ever imagined.


Review: I love this series. The guys from the Angel pack are so incredibly wonderful, funny, and loving that I just want to the series to last forever. Especially since Maggie Walsh keeps the original guys active in each successive book. I never tire of reading about Micah and Jesse, or Taylor and Gabe, and even though I thought Crew was not the nicest wolf in the pack, I even ended up loving him too in this installment.

Crew was a jerk to all the mates in earlier books, and at times I thought he was just a big ol’ bully and not a very nice guy. I could not have been more wrong. He, like the others, has a past and secrets that are slowly, and at times, painfully uncovered. Watching Jesse and Taylor love and support him after he treated them so poorly was simply inspiring. I know they had every reason to think horribly of him, but it was nice to see they took the higher road and accepted that Crew was more than meets the eye.

There were many unexpected turns in this story. Some seemed a little far fetched, but they were extremely entertaining and not once did I lose interest. Seeing Crew and Haven and Laylen come together as mates was sexy as sin, and seeing the three big, strong, alpha types claim each other was scorching hot. I am a huge fan of alpha males and ménages so this story did not disappoint.

As is the case with the other books in this series, the storyline concerning the upcoming paranormal battle continues to move forward, and I have no doubt that if it’s not begun in the next book, it will happen shortly afterwards. I am also looking forward to seeing Raith find his sons, and seeing them all finally settled. Matthew is a pain in the ass, but he has good reasons for being that way and he just breaks my heart. I know Raith will be exactly what he needs to come to terms with his life, his past, and his future.

So again, I am recommending this series to all who love shifters and the paranormal. I, for one, love being taken on a trip in a parallel universe, and I look forward to seeing how all our guys handle the upcoming war and seeing who else finds their mates.

Overall Impression: I loved it

*I received a copy of this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review.*
