As a Guardian climbing the ranks in the Black Mesa Wolf Pack, Sara Kenyon’s life is ideal. A sexy firecracker, she’s never regretted her carefree love-’em-and-leave-’em attitude. But when her one-time fling, smokin’ hot Rafe Bardou, wants the only thing she can’t give him–commitment–she starts to question if freedom is everything she desires.  Rafe’s patience is legendary. Yet for all his strength and control, Rafe craves something he can’t have: free-spirited Sara as his mate. Her red-hot kisses have eluded him for over a year, but he can’t stop thinking about how they once tangled the sheets together. Now he’s out of time. Her commitment to him is essential–not only for his own happiness, but for the future of the Pack.  Losing control isn’t an option. But it may be the only way to convince this sweet vixen he’s her alpha wolf.

This was a great, albeit quick, read. This book 2 in the Black Mesa Wolves Series and I have to admit, without reading the first book I was not lost at all. The author did a great job of explaining the pertinent info from the first book without bogging down the second.

I loved the fact that Sara wasn’t one of those “I need a man to complete me” type of girl we see in a lot of romance novels. And the fact that Rafe was willing to wait for her to be ready just endeared him to me.

All in all I think this book was a great read. I would have liked to see it go a little further then it did but overall it was an awesome book. So much so I got the first book and am looking forward to reading more in the series.

I do this review with a heavy heart. I got really excited from the blurb and I love shifter books but that is about as far as I can go with actually liking what I was reading. I tend to expect action in my shifter books and I just didn’t get what I was looking for until about eighty percent in to the book. The main conflict is with Sara’s inner turmoil to prove herself as a true guardian. I wanted to connect with the characters but there isn’t enough character building by the author to actually feel anything for Sara or Rafe. Harper tried to pull me in with descriptive wording but most times came off to much. The story line would be much more entertaining with a stronger conflict.
