Publisher Description

Driving home from a trip, Emma Matheson is run off the road in an abduction attempt. Seems the alpha of her father’s former pack never forgave his defection. To settle the old score, he plans to force her to mate with a male of his choosing—his son, Dmitri.

Dmitri Gribkov wants no part of his father’s revenge. A loner by choice, nothing has prepared him for sexy, stubborn Emma. He’ll do whatever it takes to protect her—even if it means losing her.

Determined to control her destiny, she does her best to escape, even as the attraction between her and Dmitri sizzles. Doesn’t take long for her to realize this huge, sexy wolf is a protector at heart.

Tracking and killing are what he does best. Before this is over, he’ll have blood on his hands, but winning her love will be the hardest battle.

Finding Home

I wish I could give this more stars, because I loved everything about it. The story is told in such an incredibly well articulated way, I was hooked from the first page.

The dynamic and chemistry between Dmitri and Emma was one that reels you in with both being such strong characters with bold personalities. Dmitri in particular was a great character to read about as he had many layers to him and as the book goes on you see him go through different stages of learning about himself.

This has me so excited to read more in this series so I can read about the other members in the Salvation pack.

Characters feel a bit flat but still a fine read if you're in the mood for a shifter romance

I've read a couple of NJ Walters's books before and unfortunately, this is the one I like the least. My biggest complaint with this story is that it feels very superficial. It's a fast-burn romance and while I do believe that instalove/fast-burn stories can be done well, this wasn't it.

I think the main thing that makes the characters feel so flat is the fact that there's a lot of telling vs. showing. Sure, Dmitri has a whole backstory and has some trauma from the way his pack was structured, but we barely get a glimpse of it; we mostly just hear about it from his internal monologue. Emma was even worse for me—we really don't get any background on her at all as a person/individual. I feel very ambivalent towards her because I feel like I know too little about her to determine if I like her or not. If you take what's being said in the story at face value then I think they work well as a couple, but I didn't feel invested in their story at all.

On the plus side, though the plot wasn't anything crazy, it had a nice balance of action, suspense, and romantic moments. The writing was also decent and it's an easy read, so it's still good if you're in the mood for a relatively light shifter romance.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
