Fifteen years ago, cougar shifter Monk Badeaux broke his mate’s heart and publicly humiliated her. All because of a dangerous family secret his father told him on the day he claimed her as a mate.
After the humiliation, bear shifter Kitty Chambers left town as soon as she could. Now she has to return for her best friend’s wedding and hope to avoid her first love, Monk, and their past.
Even fifteen years later, their attraction is still there and mating instincts return with a vengeance. For Monk, who never stopped loving her, this is a chance to take a risk and win her back by telling her the truth while taking advantage of their attraction. For Kitty, this may just be the thing to finally get him out of her system once and for all. The battle for love is on. Will Kitty be able to forgive her mate and reclaim him, or will she just move on again?
The story of Kitty and Monk is so much better than the first book in this series. It has all the elements and emotions I usually look for in a book and is more realistic compared to Primal Song. I felt for both Monk and Kitty. Their actions are pretty much justified, though I will admit Kitty’s constant rejections did make my heart break for Monk. One thing really got me though while reading this was a Grizzly bear shifter named Kitty. It had me laughing out loud at times. This book is emotionally fulfilling and all about second chances, forgiving the past, and moving on. Of course, the plus point is you will get to visit all the characters from the first book including Daisy and Ram. A complete read.
