Brock Holloway has it all -- money, friends, a bitchin' car and a promising football career. At least, that's what people see. Inside, though, Brock is fighting for something he knows he can never have: Unconditional love. As the child of Aphrodite, he is worshipped, admired, wanted - but never loved.
Zack Duran is a wolverine shifter -- and not a nice guy. Zack's shifter side is always in control, often making him heartless and unfeeling. When Zack is assigned to guard Brock Holloway, his tactless wolverine tendencies become even more prevalent and Zack has to fight his shifter personality AND his genuine feelings for the beautiful football player.
A near tragedy shakes him to his core, and Zack can no longer fight the feelings he has for Brock. But giving in to his emotions may come at too high a price. A startling secret charges Brock with the nearly impossible task of taming Zack's beast. Is he up to the challenge? Can Zack give him what he needs? And with danger working overtime, can they finally be together as they were intended?
*** I received this copy from the author in exchange for my honest opinions. ***
I was introduced to the world of Sandrine Gasq-Dion a few months ago when I read one of her Assassin / Shifter books. I loved it so much I made it a mission to read them all...then I found this series lol. This is the fourth book in The 12 Olympians series I have read. I am in love with all of these characters and their stories are incredible. The author really knows how to get inside your head and make them all a part of you and not just characters in a book. I always get lost while reading her books and I enjoy every second of it.
We first met Brock way back when in the Assassin / Shifter books and the first impression we get is of a man whore. The more we learn about the people in the books though gives us a little bit of a better look into their lives. Looking at the good looking guy who everyone wants you would think he has it all, when really all he wants is to be loved. This book finally tells his story and it was more than I could have imagined, there is so much going on here that just makes you want to give poor Brock a hug.
We were also introduced to Zach a bit ago and his problems were astronomical, when the two get together it makes for a seriously good read. I love the connection to the Gods, and how we are learning more about the kids powers. The story is really coming together now and I'm hanging by the seat of my pants lol. Overall this is an excellent read and I'm rating it in at 5 hearts! I cannot wait for the next one....no seriously, I can't freaking wait!!!
Best selling author, Sandrine (Sandy) was born in Inglewood, California. Raised by "Old School" French parents, she later moved to Tucson, AZ. It was there that writing became a hobby. Always told she had a great imagination, Sandy wrote short stories for her friends in High School. In college, she took more writing classes while working on her Criminal Justice degree, but it wasn't until a soap opera caught her eye that she got involved in male on male romances. On the advice of a friend, Sandy dipped her toes into the world of M/M Romance. Sandy takes the writing seriously and has had countless conversations with gay men as well as hours of research. She's been involved with the military in one way or another for over twenty years, and has a great deal of respect for our men in uniform. She's traveled the world, but has finally returned to Arizona.
There is now an Assassin/Shifter website!! Many thanks to the talented Jenn Watts for all her hard work!
