4.5 stars! Loved it!!!!!! I'm really enjoying this series, this is book 8 and for me its getting better and better! I don't even have to read the synopsis now I just download and enjoy! Jennifer Ashley gave us 2 fantastic main characters, loved them both. Addie was such a strong, caring and smart h and I felt like she was easy to relate to. Kendrick was swoon worthy, so protective of all those around him and his adorable cubs gave major cute factor. Got to see a lot more of Ben and Zander and see some of the previous characters, Dylan, spike and my all time fave of Tiger, I would happily read another full length on Tiger!!! It was great to see him and how his HEA was progressing with Carly! Overall a great plot and continuation of this Shifter world! Looking forward to the next in the series!
If you have been reading this series you will not want to miss this book. This story is intense and hits right from the start. The baddie was awful and it kept me reading till the end. We get Kendrick’s story in this book, the leader of the uncollared shifters that we met in an earlier story. Kendrick is an Alpha Male, what more is there to say. Really glad he had a second chance at love. We start with a bit of sweetness with Kendrick being continually drawn to the diner where Addison works. She treats his cubs when they come in and shyly flirts with Kendrick. The suspense starts when a nasty person from his past catches up with Kendrick at the diner, thus involving Addie. Addie goes on the run with Kendrick and slips easily into the role of carer for the cubs but also is a good balance for Kendrick. I thought Addison was a great match for Kendrick and just what the cubs need. Strong without being harsh, maternal, down to earth and very sensible. Loved the ending with Tiger, I was a bit weepy as he is my favourite. If you have not read one of the Shifters Unbound books this is a good one to start with but I guarantee you will want to read all the others too. Can be read as a standalone and holds its own as a story but it is lovely to meet all the characters from previous books and meet some new ones as well.
Kendrick has been the Guardian of the un-Collared Shifters for twenty years but he’s been forced to flee and his only salvation is the beautiful Addison Price in this thrilling paranormal romance.
Addison has seen a lot of unusual drifters come and go but none has ever captivated and intimidated her like the imposing fugitive who wields a broadsword with incredible skill and the readers can’t help but get caught up in the excitement as Addison joins Kendrick in a passionate bid for freedom. The relationship between Addison and Kendrick is a bit complicated due to circumstances but the chemistry is sizzling and the passion is scorching with lots of emotional turbulence adding depth to this story from both Addison and Kendrick along with other characters throughout the story. The fast paced and smooth flowing plot thrills readers with lots of suspense, excitement and romance while the strong, captivating characters demand reader’s attention as they struggle with their attraction while trying to stay alive among betrayals and a shifter plot that would see Kendrick and a lot of other shifters dead.
The story starts off with a thrilling event and continues to hold readers captive with lots of adrenaline pumping excitement and spine tingling anticipation as Kendrick and Addison try to find a safe haven for Kendrick’s shifters all while avoiding those who would cage them and someone from Kendrick’s past has come back with a vengeance adding to the excitement and danger since he has quite the evil plan. The scenes are well written and full of vivid details that make it easy for the reader to become engrossed in all the engaging events.
Every book in the Shifters Unbound series has always held my complete attention from beginning to end, but I have to say that Kendrick’s story has just became on my favorites as the story was full of unexpected twist that kept me on the edge of my seat. Oh, I guess I should warn you, not only will you want to keep Kendrick for your very own, there are three little heart stealers in this story as well.
