NOTE: Complete novel. No cliffhanger. Dual POV. Rated 18+ for language and strong sexual content. This is an adult paranormal romance with erotic content. The series centers on Billionaire Wolf Shifters with plus sized BBW for mates. It also includes vampires, voodoo priestess, a Marine, and magic. These are stand alone books that create a series. They do not need to be read in order.
El is a beautiful, successful, plus sized woman suffering a debilitating humiliation that has left her hating all handsome, wealthy men exactly like Stefan Le Beau. Unfortunately for Le Beau, she’s known him since she was sixteen and was totally snubbed by him. To her, he’s a hound dog and a man-whore.
Stefan is a playboy to the extreme with one hard and fast rule: date a woman only once, take her to bed, and be gone before morning. Until El.
Stefan’s dream of finding his mate comes true when he bids two hundred thousand dollars to win a date with El at Simon’s charity ball. Money well spent in his opinion.
Now, if she would only talk to him. Or look at him. Or touch him, or…like him.
Can Stefan convince El he's a reformed man?
Can El learn to trust a man who is the epitome of what she avoids and could shatter her heart?
It will require drastic, strategic measures from the entire family to make this mating happen.
This book added an extra 15 minutes to my workout JUST so I could finish reading it. The only reason I can't give it five stars is El's emotional transition happened to fast that type of trauma isn't overcome that quickly.
Honestly it was really hard for me to get passed El's rebuffs and reactions to Stefan and I almost didn't finish the book because of it but I love the series so I did. Thank the goddess I did because wow, it was a great story with tragedy, heartbreak and love. Once you learn El's dark past (which was really hard for me to read) everything makes since; all the things she did in the beginning that were annoying the crap out of me and making me want to reach into the book and give her a good shake, were explained by her past when it was FINALLY revealed. Overall a great book, it definitely keeps you on your toes.
Total good read.
