RATING : 4.5 MALE WERECAT STARS!!!

Book Blurb : Taken From Goodreads

I'm on trial for my life. Falsely accused of infecting my human ex-boyfriend—and killing him to cover up the crime. Infecting a human is one of three capital offenses recognized by the Pride—along with murder and disclosure of our existence to a human.



I'm two for three. A goner.


Now we've discovered a rogue stray terrorizing the mountainside, hunting a wild teenage tabbycat. It's up to us to find and stop him before a human discovers us. With my lover Marc's help, I think I can protect the vulnerable girl from both the ambitious rogue and the scheming of the territorial council.


If I survive my own trial…

BOOK REVIEW:



Faythe sure is like the Pied Piper when it comes to trouble. It just follows her and then catches up to her with HUGE consequences.


Awwww, Faythe and Marc....these two characters have such strength between them that they will do what is necessary for the Pride at the cost of ‘them’. It does make your heart ache to see the once uber stubborn Faythe start to take control of her mistakes and she really does mature in this book.


Marc.....I really get him now. I always loved him, but when he and Jace had their smackdown...well ....I hoped there was more to Marc as I really like Jace, he’s gorgeous and funny. There is a lot of pain under Marc’s fur. I understand now how much inner strength being the Alpha’s assassin/interrogator, top Enforcer brings with it. It’s a huge job to be in charge of, on many levels. You really ‘feel’, Marc’s heart and sadness over Faythe and her stubbornness, her inability to think past what she could lose if she married Marc. Rather than what they as two werecats could gain.


The title ‘Pride’ means a couple things in this book. Another badass thick book which I devoured and want to rip into ‘Prey’.


I love the new characters that Rachel has brought to this book. We have a ‘Bruin’, yup! a bear shifter and I love him!! I bet he isn’t the last person picked for a team.


I am sniffing a little something in the air with Ethan and a certain someone. Granted the someone is young, but if Rachel hasn’t finished this series off with the young someone aged appropriate and Ethan and her eligible, then I would love a spinoff of Ethan and ?


I loved the way Ethan the lover of all females dropped to his knees in front of her. But! I haven’t finished this series so who knows?


I’m starting to see real Alpha material in Faythe now. I think Greg is a bit of a spunk , I am also getting the feeling that he is on the way out and Faythe will be on the way in.


I would really like to give Calvin Malone a ‘stinky dead fish ‘ slap,  he is grrrrrrr......manipulative and has his own agenda. He is a thorn in Faythe’s side.


The story really pumps along and I really enjoyed this book. Rachel has put in several ‘ewwwwww’, moments and some nice werecat ‘slashdowns’. Some of the characters are in need of some heavy duty painkillers. I am loving this series and highly recommend it.
