5 Hearts ♥♥♥♥♥
This book grabbed my attention from the opening paragraphs and kept me riveted until the last word on my Kindle. The descriptions of every scene whether sexual or conflicts between the characters pull you right in and shake you to your core.
I've loved every book I've read by this author and this one doesn't disappoint. Not only does she draw you into the sexual tension between the characters, she makes it so you can actually feel it yourself. When they do finally consummate, I was ready for a cigarette afterward and I don't smoke! Extra devils for that one!
BRAVA!!! I want more of this series, like...yesterday! The author has introduced us to the world of the Blackwood wolves and their allies. I can't wait to see what she has in store for every single one of them. Oh and the villains are positively deLISH and I want to see what havoc they bring to Lily and her clan.
In the sea of wolf shifter and werewolf tales available today, Lily: The Blackwood Wolves Saga stands out and leads the pack. (pun intended!) Lily Blackwood is the fiery heroine who bucked against her destiny to try to fit into the world of humans and have a "normal" life. That stubborn streak ends up putting not only her life in danger, but that of those she cares about the most. Because she's pulled away from her family legacy, she's missed out on some very important training needed to prepare her to step up as Alpha.
Of course, her family didn't let her go out into the big bad world without some guidance. Her sister did the best she could helping to raise Lily after their mother's death and then there's Wallace...
Wallace Kirk has been at Lily's side since she was born. He's protected her from harm and herself on more than one occasion. This includes relieving her of the intense sexual urges that take over during the full moon when she's "in heat." What I wouldn't give for my very own Wallace. YUMMO!
Things get a bit more complicated when Lily's true mate comes on scene. Smokin' hot Bryn brings out all the right feelings in Lily when they meet and she wants him...oh does she ever! Of course this doesn't sit too well with Wallace. :) Of course both men/wolves have to put their head butting aside in order to protect Lily from not one but TWO villains hell bent on torturing and killing female Blackwood wolves.
As I mentioned with the extra icons above, the sex scenes are fabulous and will leave you breathless and begging for a few minutes to regroup. You'll barely recover before your heart is racing again...with fear. Our heroine and her friends are put through the ringer and some on death's door.
You will NOT want to miss this one. Go on and grab your copy today.

Here's the blurb:
Lily Blackwood is torn between two strong men...
One, Wallace is her perfect idea of a partner, loving, loyal and handsome. The second, Bryn, is her true mate, the man chosen for her by nature and her family. Denial and naivety for nature’s choice, sends her into a rage of independence against the laws of her own destiny, family and her own father.
Wallace Kirk is assigned to protect the beautiful Lily since her birth...
His loyalties are tearing him apart. His own mate, dead, taken from him, fills his thoughts as Lily begs for his attention. She needs him, but not as much as the wolf that prowls in her flesh.
Bryn Kemp's nature and need fill his flesh...
Yet his true mate, the woman chosen for him, denies her destiny. His battle for her and his own pride must overcome her feisty rebellious streak. Both men must fight for her in the throes of oncoming battle and she must make the right choice. A decision that will shape the war.
