A ROLLER COASTER RIDE I DON’T WANT TO END
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on July 15, 2018
The eighth story will have Agent Charlie Dune from Alpha’s War and his CIA handler, Annabel Gray teaming up in this edge-of-your-seat life-and-death adventure. While each of these books is designed to read as a stand-alone, they compliment each other and have characters and situations from previous stories. I was so engrossed in the tale of Annabel and Charlie that I did not want to put the book down. I loved the chemistry of the characters. You can't help but want to see them both win and find happiness.
Charlie has just recently discovered he was a wolf and is confused about it and what is happening to him. He is also remembering memories of a wolf from when he was a child, realizing that that large silver wolf was his father. He had asked Annabelle to help him on a private matter and told her he would return that favor.
Annabel Gray works for the CIA but not in the field, instead, she is a handler and able to do work on the computer, which includes hacking into the CIA database. What a shock when she comes across records on her father, a Marine that was killed in the line of duty out of the country when she was just a child. But what is this about him working for the CIA? With parts of the records have been redacted and that makes her more curious.
The plot will have Annabel upset when she can’t reach Charlie for a mission and assuming he is out with a woman. These two have secret feelings for one another but know that it can go nowhere.
Charlie will go out on the new assignment, but something is seriously off with the man he is following. With Charlie’s new wolf senses, there is something supernatural about his mark, and he will have to leave the case. But then he will get involved with Annabel on her discovery about her father and the CIA.
What happens when Annabel sets off alarms within the CIA and top officials? She will be verbally reprimanded and told to stand down, something she just can’t do. Now Charlie becomes involved when it looks like someone is not only after Annabel but her sister and nephew too. Is this the snapping point for these two to act on their feelings?
“Sex with you was completely out of my control. I didn’t plan it, I don’t know if it was wise, but there was no helping it. What I feel for you is pure, raw animal magnetism. The only thing that would’ve stopped me was you. I’ll always respect your wishes. I hope you know that. It’s not a requirement for my help.”
The story takes on life and death situations when someone is after Annabel, Sarah, and Grady. Charlie will have to deploy many of his talents in evasive maneuvers, illegal seizures, and calling in favors. It will mean hiding Sarah and Grady while Annabel and Charlie go to Washington, DC to try and uncover the truth. But people who are supposed to be friends may be wolves in sheep clothing.
“We’re in this together now. No going back. I’m going to keep you safe. Okay?”
Once Annabel and Charlie become lovers they can’t get enough of each other. But Charlie knows the full moon is fast approaching, and the wolf is wanting out. He fears he will be dangerous to Annabel and tries to stay away but he can’t, there is an internal pull that is drawing him closer to her, a need to protect, claim, and mate her. What will happen when he loses control and bites her?
“I’ve reached my quota of crazy.”
The story will take on the battle of good versus evil, but it will also come with an unlikely source for assistance. There will be more surprises in store, and not everyone who calls themselves a friend will honestly be. Charlie learns he can’t remain a lone wolf as he has since his career in the military and then the CIA. He will need to reach out to friends in Tucson and had he trusted them sooner; it would have helped answer questions. He has already given up too much for his country, and he isn’t willing to sacrifice Annabel too.
The story has explicit sex scenes, mild spanking and a growing relationship between Annabel and Charlie. But best of all, it has healing, a closure on the past, and happiness for the future.
