My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 unicorns - I loved it!! ***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! Yes, I received a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! I haven’t bought it yet, but I will. I own the rest of the series already. The cover is stunning because the snow leopard is a beauty especially those eyes! This is the 6th book in this series, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content. While not required, I think reading the series in order makes the world so much more. You should also be aware that this book does cover sensitive subjects like animal trafficking and abuse. It is contains multiple partner relations for those who lean towards the traditional. This book had all sorts of action and discoveries along the way. Leo is the star in this book for both bad and good things. He does learn a lot about himself in this book, and he is working to correct his perceptions and attitude. Asha is an amazingly strong berserker because she has been in captivity and stuck in her leopard form all her life. She is smart and compassionate and thinks of others first. Lots of new friends are found in this book as well and new discoveries about an old friend. Kate Douglas wrote a fantastic story and that is an action-packed page turner that I could not put down. I really love this world she created with the Chanku. I learn new things in each book about this world which always keeps it exciting. I highly recommend to any shifter fan who want action and are open to non-traditional relations! I can’t wait to see what Kate comes up with next!

I am a true fan of Kate Douglas and all her books. I think she is an amazing author and the books just seem so real to me. I feel like I become apart of the book. This book made me smile on so many occasions. The relationship between Asha and Leo was just so sweet. I just adore them. Asha is a beautiful snow leopard that just makes the story so awesome. The relationship with Shannon and Remington was so sexy and awesome. I mean those two were made for one another, not only as lovers but as partners. They work and that is what matters. Once I start reading a Kate Douglas book it is hard for me to put it down and once again she proved it right. I am in love. Its always a treat when Anton and Keisha is in the story line. Fantastic job Kate once again.... I cant wait until the next book. I feel like part of the Chanku Family..... Kesha

I really enjoyed this story of Rem, Shay, Leo and Asha. This story has love, laughter, family new and old, loss, and bad men. Leo has to find how to change the way he thinks about the Chanku women. As the 4 learn more about the men and what they have done they become close and each one falls in love. I’m so glad that Kate Douglas wrote another book to continue on and I can’t wait to see who’s next.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions in this review are my own and in no way influenced by the publisher or author. What a beautiful emotional connection these characters have to each other, as well as themselves. The things that really grabbed me the most in a very unique way was how the human side and the animal side had no real line between the two. When the characters were in human form they did and thought things that were very much animal, and when they were in animal form they had a lot of human characteristics. I am so use to the shifters I read about being completely one of the other, but the way these two sides mixed wan’t just beautifully done, it really made me feel more connected to both the characters as well as the way they interacted and treated each other. The way the relationships in this story develop is also gripping. Leo, the hero, is a shifter that was raised with parents that live a very different life than the rest of their kind. Because of this, Leo feels the male in the relationship should not only protect the woman, but also make all her decisions for her. This leads him to struggle with his relationships and ultimately be shunned, however he has a talk with his alpha, Anton, and is set straight. Wow, all I can say for Leo’s situation is wow. I really feel his embarrassment and confusion from this, as well as see why his struggle is so difficult. I love the way Asha‘s sad past helps to push Leo into seeing how truly strong and graceful a woman can be. Beyond that, thanks to his newfound appreciation for women, he really sees her personality and not only accepts how wild she can be but also admires it. That being said, what has caused the lower page turner rating, as well as the lower fire in the sheets rating is the lack of details throughout the story. While the emotions, inner thoughts, and what each character looks like is described lightly, they are the only things given any good amount of detail. The main thing that threw me out of the story was the lack of landscape description around the characters. While a few scenes are described, for the most part I am told they are in a bedroom, on a rock, or in a bar but that’s the extent of it. This carries on to a lot of physical interactions between characters and during the sexual scenes in the book as well. This left me feeling a little left out of what was happening in the characters lives. For me the saying show me don’t tell me really does hold a lot of weight. Another thing I wanted to mention was the masterful way Kate Douglas has integrated so many different characters stories into the same book. I tend to not mind more than one characters story being told in the same book, but I always seem to grab onto the main hero and heroine’s story more, however in this book I found myself fascinated and invested in every character’s story. The emotional conversion for Remington and full acceptance into the pack as a newly shifted member was really magical to me. Please note, you must read all the books prior to this one in the series, I was confused during the first few chapters with just jumping into this book.
