The pack can follow his scent but then it just abruptly ends. When one of Chances people discovers that there is a drug that is supposed to hide you scent they think they are going to have an edge to catch this lycan.
But when the lycan targets Olivia, Chance runs into her and discovers that she is his primal-mate. Olivia is going to get a surprise of her life when she hooks up with Chance and is going to get a crash course in lycans, pack behavior, and how crazy this rouge lycan can really be.
I really liked this story. Great action, lots of sex, and a really good story. I really felt for Olivia and all the hell she went through with her husband and how she was not going to get together with Chance without a fight. Smoke is one evil bastard and I really hope he dies a slow and painful death. But the story ends with a huge cliffhanger. I can’t wait to read Savage Smoke.
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
