Growing up on the tough Philly streets Gwen O'Neill has learned how to fend for herself But what is she supposed to do with a nice suburban Jersey boy in the form of a massive Grizzly shifter? Especially one with a rather unhealthy fetish for honey moose anduhwell her Yet despite his menacing ursine growl and four inch claws Gwen finds Lachlan Lock MacRyrie cute and really sweet He actually watches out for her protects her and unlike the rest of her out of control family manages not to morbidly embarrass her Too bad cats don't believe in foreverAt nearly seven feet tall Lock is used to people responding to him in two ways screaming and running away Gwen half lioness half tigress all kick ass does neither She's sexy beyond belief and smart as hell but she's a born protector Watching out for the family and friends closest to her but missing the fact that she's being stalked by a murderous enemy who doesn't like hybridsand absolutely hates Gwen Lock probably shouldn't get involved but he will Why? Because this is Gwen and no matter what the hissing roaring drape destroying feline says about not being ready to settle down Lock knows he can't simply walk away Not when she's come to mean absolutely everything to him

Are you crying?” “Just a little” She wiped the tears “Nothing to worry about” “Yeah but—” Her hand slapped over his mouth “Silence is your friend right now” When he didn’t try to speak she removed her hand and placed both on her hips “Do you know I’m actually concerned I won’t be able to handle this thing?” A few tears fell “Do you know how many women actually get to say that sentence in a lifetimeand mean it?”“Because if there’s one thing we both know baby is that the one person who was safe in that room was me I know you’ll never hurt me I know you’ll always protect me And I know I’ll never stop loving you” Gwen was kind of amazed A mother with several degrees and a prestigious position at an Ivy League college did not ensure that she’d be any less embarrassing to her child than a mother who became a nurse through night school Gwen knew this when Alla launched into her “unfortunate changes in my vagina after the birth of Lachlan” discussion Lock had to put his big glass of milk down for that one his head buried in his hands The parts of his face not covered by his long fingers turned a lovely shade of crimson Gwen had nail polish that matched that color perfectly “Was it his giant kumquat head?” Gwen asked thoroughly enjoying every second of Lock’s misery “No It was his shoulders He’s always had very large shoulders I mean look at him Even as a baby they were freakishly long” “Freakishly?” Lock snapped “They stretched me right out” “Mom” Brody shrugged and reached for moo goo gai pork “I didn’t mind” “Dad” “Well darling you were always quite large so it made things a little easier for both of us when it came to sex” “Mom”OMG this book is the best of the series So freakin hilarious I laughed all the way through this book As a couple Gwen and Lock are adorable together The sex in this book is smokin' hot I love Jessie Ann in this book and Blayne Thorpe Mitch drove me crazy The of Mitch I see the I don't like I really like Lock's parents and Gwen's mom I Love the roller derby action in this book The mane squeeze is Great book Blayne's book next and I can't wait Below I leave a couple of my favorite quotes from this book“Hey you bear son of a—” Lost in thoughts of Gwen the growling voice startled him and Lock spun around Immediately the two lions stumbled back and Mitch shoved Brendon ahead of him “Take him” Mitch ordered Lock Brendon glared at his brother “What do you mean ‘take him’?” “Well bruh” the lion explained grinning “I am the pretty one” “You betraying son of a bitch” “There’s no need to get nasty you big baby Take your bear mauling like a man”While the two females snarled viciously at each other Ric grabbed a stick from the ground and waved it between Jess and Blayne “Look Look A stick Who wants it? Who wants it? Go get it” He threw the stick and Jess and Blayne watched it flip across the forest floor Once it landed they looked back at Ric “Dude” Jess told him “that was just rude”
