Spoilers ahead. Kira came across as hard to me in the beginning. Taking the control issues of her father and his actions into account still did not make her that likeable. Kira hates her brother being in control of her company, so why didn't she just marry anyone to get her company back. With 3 ex-fiancés she obviously had a choice but choose not to marry them. Kira is just nuts, she knows she is doing it wrong, has an accident and knocks herself out. She wakes up after being saved, is nice and warm and dry and taken care of, but plans to brain whomever with a frypan. Really we all act that way just because we are in our underclothes. She keeps saying she was naked but she still had her bra and panties on. Was Luke supposed to put her in bed with her wet frozen clothes on. Never says thank you for Luke saving her. She then has to contend with Luke's nutty ex Melissa who threatens to come back and kill her and Melissa even helps the killers after Kira. I will say Kira took everything in stride, being with shifters, Melissa’s attack on her, Peters behaviour at the end and all without flinching. Luke was okay but I did not bond with him in any way, he was just going through the motions. There was no serious talking in this book, just insta lust and trouble. I only really liked the last few chapters after Kira thought Luke was dying, then it became a good read to me with a direction I liked. Her brother wanting her dead did not surprise me, that came across in the first few paragraphs about the business. Not at all surprised at the ending, though Kira was for some funny reason. I do not understand how she would think he would just give back a multimillion dollar company he was running. Did not like the premise that The Heat seems to control their actions. A true mate is not the only one who can have kids apparently, so if they have a heat cycle why are there not lots of little Cubs running around. Luke’s mother did not stay after his dad got her pregnant during The Heat. Not my ideal shifter way to bring kids up with only one parent then spout about true mates being everything.
This is a wonderful new series by Milly Taiden. If you have read any of her other books and liked them you will like this book as well. If you haven’t you really should read this and you will be hooked on all her books. The story is well written with just enough intrigue to not let you put the book. I cannot wait for the next book in the series is released.
