REVIEW ï RANDARENEWABLES.CO.UK ☆ Rhyannon Byrd

Last Wolf StandingOuld never sanction Worse the rogue werewolf he'd been hunting had sensed that attraction and made Torry his prey Forced to safeguard her from this ruthless assassin who already posed a threat to his pack Mason now. This book started out great The theme was the same as any other werewolf story out there – the tall dark brooding were hunk walks into a bar and no it’s not the beginning of a joke and sniffs his predestined mate – who also happens to be human ooh big shocker there – not But it was the way they hooked up that was a bit different – at least at the beginningThe tall dark brooding were hunk actually tripped his fragile petite human future mate turning her into a walking tribute to a modernist painter since she fell into her bowl of tomato soupSo he and his friend uickly established she was his and because she was his she was automatically in danger because of the big bad psycho wolf on the loose with a huge chip on his god wannabe shoulder and a enormous grudge against the tall dark brooding were hunk At the same time the fragile petite human future mate figured the two hunks were nuts and boltedAnd proceeded to walking into a trap by the big bad psycho wolf laying in wait at her homeThe two hunks – who were not crazy BTW – rescued this silly fragile petite human future mateAnd that’s when the story really startedUnfortunately the only good thing about this book was the beginning The rest of the story never lived up to the expectations the beginning spawned and it was mostly due to heroine While I somehow understood the Mason’s motivations and reasons Torrance was something else entirely She was all over the place first she didn’t want anything to do with him second she wanted nothing than to jump his bones not that I blame her third she was afraid of getting hurt fourth she didn’t give a damn about anything just jumping his bones again I don’t blame herOn and on it went with the author's attempt at justifying this with the way she grew up and the number her mother did on her Sorry I just didn’t buy it and it uickly grew repetitive and eye roll inducingI merely skimmed the pages through the second part just wanting it to end already I was curious about the rest of this trilogy at first but now having read this one I’ll most certainly pass on the rest Sad but true

That a woman who was his perfect match even existed And that he'd find her in a bustling cafe Yet just the scent of sweet mortal Torrance Watson ignited a driving explosive need to claim her that he knew his pack w. Content Explicit sex swearing and profanity lots of bloody gore references to child molestation etc This book started off so good I chuckled several times during the opening scenes at the café Mason must do something drastic to catch Torrance's attention and his friend Jeremy makes things worse That first meeting was warm and sexy instant attraction and really well done I could feel the chemistry Soon things got scary with a psychopathic werewolf on Tor's trail and Mason and Jeremy watching her back All good But it gradually lost that fun sexy and adventurous flavor Where did that fabulous humor go Tor the heroine was just too wishy washy alternatively brave and fear filled freuently remembering her childhood and reflecting on whether Mason loves her they just met I started to skim past her reflections Then she blew hot and cold with Mason in terms of sex which didn't feel fair I couldn't get too excited about Mason despite his oft mentioned six pack abs and heroic nature A werewolf who smokes That's not attractive to me Tor and Mase think a lot about sex but when finally they clinched it fell flat So I guess I wasn't emotionally invested in these characters and the plot was nothing new There were some icky bits too references to child molestation rape eating ofnever mind I'm not crazy about so much profanity either Just not my cuppa Too bad I love a good werewolf or shifter story But several friends have loved this seriesWerewolf romances I have enjoyed Kristen Callihan's MoonglowPatricia Briggs' urban fantasy Hunting Ground loved the whole Alpha Omega seriesIllone Andrews' urban fantasy Bayou Moon Molly Harper's How to Flirt with a Naked WerewolfNalini Singh's changeling series especially Kiss of SnowElizabeth Eden's The Wolf WithinSusan Krinard's Prince of ShadowsFor something different I also liked the dystopian Nightfall by Ellen Connor and the steam punk Soulless by Gail Carriger

Torrance is the human mate of Mason who is half werewolf half human A Bloodrunner This shifter romance in particular stands out from some in recent memory The author takes time to not only flesh out the main characters but provide entertaining secondary characters and an interesting background for the wold of the werewolfA hundred pages in your wondering who is going to be in Book 2 there is teaser at the end D The story is so evovling you want I liked that Torrance Tor tried to be strong and make a stand against what Mason proposed Being mated wo love Of course that would never work I liked that Mason got it from all sides His friends family and even a dream visit from his dead brother The conflict of Bloodrunnning hunting rogues added to the plot It was not distracting or time consuming You got the sense that being a Bloodrunner was every bit apart of Mason as him being mated to Tor
