Series: Wolf #2
Tensions rise and now I have two enemies that want me dead.
But I’ve never felt safer.
My wolf protects me. He cherishes me. And I think he loves me.
This arranged marriage was detested by us both, but now I look at him with new eyes.
My husband is strong, smart, and gorgeous. His coffee-colored eyes make me melt. My heart slowly starts to soften for this man and I fall deeper and deeper.
I fall in love with my husband.
The dynamic between these two continues to get even more exciting and complicated. We see what happens between Arwen and Maverick change into something that’s a layer deeper, but outside forces make it impossible for there to be happiness.
In this second installment, we get to see how the story continue with Mav and his father and how no matter how much everyone tries, all hope is lost. They have the chance to kill Ramon, the man who murdered Mav’s mom, and that should have been the end of the story – a way to get revenge. The challenge is that Mav’s father takes things one step too far and takes Ramon’s wife and daughter as well and wants to give them the same fate as his wife. So, there’s no choice here but for Arwen to take matters into her own hands, free the wife and daughter and that means that whatever rifts were in existence with this family are even worse now.
That’s the path that we’re on throughout this book. There’s so much hatred, so many opportunities of breaking trust and worrying that nothing will ever make things ok that we’re left to wonder how far Maverick will take this ruse. It’s only when Kamikazee comes along again, and makes attempts at kidnapping Arwen and forces a war that things change.
I spend a lot of this story thinking that there may be hope at some point, that we may be able to see a happier ending, but i think that there are far too many obstacles to find happiness. There’s clear chemistry between them, there’s a sense of friendship between them that makes you feel like there’s a true foundation, but through a series of events, our world is turned upside down.
So, what to say now – i’m really left shaking my head at what happens at the end of this 2nd book. There are so many things that are now up in the air, and yet to be determined that we don’t know how this relationship will shake out. Mav does things, Arwen does things, and well, i’m unhappy with everyones reactions to everything. I have to now wait another couple weeks before the third installment comes, but i think that we’re going to have our minds blown however this ends up. On that note – enjoy!
