Synopsis: The full moon is a week away, and although Lydia is as excited as it gets to run as a wolf for the first time, she is also fighting to keep her independence while trying to understand her role in the lives of the three males that have come to rule hers: compassionate, tender Taylor; impetuous, fun-loving Ryan and distant, cold Lawrence.
There's also a fourth man in Lydia's life. Brendan, her previous "friend with benefits", is tirelessly searching for her. He's about to uncover things that should be kept hidden.
However, the testosterone surrounding her is the last thing she should be worrying about. Her family bear truths about her heritage she's not ready to face ... she may not have a choice, because the greatest danger to them all comes from within. The past never stays buried for long, and among the shadows of their species it is rising with a vengeance, threatening to tear their pack apart for good.
Notes: This is book two of a series - it is highly recommended that book one be read first. This is an adult, paranormal fantasy short novel (over 55,000 words) containing scenes of explicit sexual content and some violence, entwined with romantic elements. (Written in British English.)
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is the second book in the Eye Of The Storm Series. I loved it!
Lydia is a fantastic character! She is adjusting to her new life within the wolf pack. Being mated to three very different men has it's challenges. I enjoyed watching Lydia grow into her new life.
Taylor is sweet and tender. I love his protectiveness and caring of Lydia, even though he's still in love with his wife, Sarah.
Ryan is fun-loving and spontaneous. He's not as involved in this story, but I loved his method of having a "man talk" with Taylor. It made me smile!
Lawrence is intense and serious. I loved getting to know this enigmatic character a bit more. His story is very emotive, and I shed a few tears as I read it.
I have been looking forward to reading this story since I had read the first book. I started reading this book, and struggled to put it down! We meet new characters too; Sarah (Taylor's wife) and Amil. These characters add a new dimension to an already intriguing storyline. I'm not sure where Amil will fit in, in the next book, but I'm looking forward to finding out! I loved the way the story flowed, and was shocked at a major twist that had me thinking, "Huh?, what's going on?!". As this is a paranormal romance, there are a few scenes of a sensual nature that are explicit and HOT! I am now looking forward to reading the next instalment in the series!
Dianna Hardy has written an amazing paranormal romance series that is extremely fast paced, but it doesn't feel rushed. I was disappointed when I came to the end of the story, because I wanted to find out what happens next! I HATE cliffhangers! (However, I love them too!). This author is on my favourite authors list, and I will read any book written by her.
Due to the sensual content and some bad language, I do not recommend this book for younger readers. However, I highly recommend this book if you love paranormal romances with sexy werewolves. - Lynn Worton
