Nothing like a plethora of werewolf pheromones flying about to really get you in the mood.
What’s it About?
The Canis and Banes packs of werewolves have been feuding for centuries. The Hatfields and McCoys were a tea party in comparison. Until Marrok Banes, the Alpha of his pack, decides to end the fighting with a marriage of convenience. Never mind that he can’t keep his hands off his gorgeous new mate.
Tala Canis is the new Alpha of the Canis clan, the first female to claim that right, a position hard fought and won. For the sake of her people she agrees to wed Marrok. Never mind that the Alpha, once her enemy, makes her body flash heat with a single look.
But after the mating ceremony, Marrok only seems interested in one thing…taking over their combined pack while leaving Tala out of the loop. If her Alpha mate can’t learn to share, then it’s time to show him exactly why she’s an Alpha herself.
When it came to this book, I actually took a big risk by breaking my cardinal rule. I read it immediately after reading the first book in this series, which I absolutely adored. Normally when this happens, I try to read another book in between to try and tame my expectations. But with this many pheromones in the air, I simply couldn’t wait, and instead chose to dive right in. I’m happy to say that I loved this book just as mush as the first one! The plots of the two novels merge together and occur simultaneously, so I’d definitely recommend reading book 1 first. That way, you not only have a better understanding of what’s going on, but you have an even deeper connection to the characters.
Battle of the Alphas
All you know I’m a huge fan when it comes to an alpha leading man. Throw in an alpha werewolf, and oh nellie am I on board! After all, there tends to be a lot more licking involved. But throw an alpha female werewolf into the mix?! Good God in Heaven someone crack open a window from all the heat we’ve got going on around here.
On the one hand, you’ve got two alphas in the bedroom, or in some instances on a cave floor, and how could you not be intrigued by this? We’re all used to the male alpha being the dominating force in the bedroom, and Marrok can definitely rise to the call of duty. However, sometimes Tala takes the reigns to be on top and tie him up for a change. Love it!
On the other hand though, we see how combining 2 packs under 2 alphas can create a whole new set of challenges. Who is the ultimate decision maker? Can they both compromise in order to find a way to lead together, even if it means giving away a bit of their alpha-ness? When factions are created within the pack, and Tala’s leadership is threatened, they’ll have to find a way to make it work together.

Series: Legendary Consultants, book 2. I need the next book already!
Should you read it? This novel is a great read, and explores the facets of leadership conflicting with stereotypical gender norms. Intense and sexy moments make it a hard one to put down.
Smut Level: Two dominant alphas in the bedroom can only lead to delicious things in my opinion.

This book sounds like a great read. I’ll admit that just by glancing at the cover it’s totally not what you’d expect. The cover looks like some sort of rom-com type story. Still, I’ll check it out.

I know, right?! I thought the exact same thing. Perfect example of not judging a book by its cover. Definitely not what you’d expect!
Lol. Hmmmm…. might have to rethink my covers.
Each book is taking a common contemporary romance (boss/employee, marriage of convenience, nanny, etc.) and tossing in some paranormal hijinx. 🙂
I hope you enjoy it!
Thank you so much for the fantastic review! Yay! So glad you loved it. 🙂
