Carnal Secrets (The Phoenix Pack #3) by Suzanne Wright

Buy the book:
Amazon / 



"Half-shifter Shaya Critchley may hold a submissive role in her pack, but she’s done taking orders. After her Alpha wolf mate refused to claim her—but committed to interfering in her life—she took off. Now she hides from him, posing as a human in a town full of anti-shifter extremist groups. She thinks he’ll never find her again, and that suits her just fine. But she’s wrong.

Nick Axton can barely control his feelings for Shaya, but he could never claim her—not if he truly cares for her. The degenerative brain condition he keeps secret would ultimately leave her with a burden rather than a mate. But when Shaya runs away, Nick can’t bear the thought of never seeing her again. After tracking her down, he discovers Shaya’s feisty and passionate side in the process…a side he’d never seen before.

Under the menacing gazes of territorial local packs and violent human extremists, Nick vows to finally claim the spirited Shaya…and despite her initial resistance, Shaya just might find his fiery determination to be the ultimate aphrodisiac."



BEFORE reading I thought: Bring on Nick and Shaya. But first, make the bastard suffer!

Now AFTER reading: Considering I got more then 40 likes on GoodReads on a two-sentences review of a book before it was published (really - LOL), at least I could do was read it. I absolutely loved Feral Sins. Werewolf romance is my ultimate guilty book-pleasure and that one was just the way I like it - strong main characters, possessive Alphas which comes with the hotness factor, and lots of laugh. The second book fell a little short for me, so I wasn't expecting much of this third one. It even sounded like it will be of the same cup as the other books. Also Nick pissed me off for refusing Shaya before but now I actually feel bad for wishing him to suffer which he did. And a lot. I bet all you ladies that liked my review before reading want to unlike it now, right? I understand perfectly, lol.

Shaya was a great heroine, I sympathised with her. I wouldn't do anything different then she did. Nick kept a lot of secrets from her. What's a girl gotta do? And Nick was the sweetest guy - extremly patient, self-sacrificing, romantic.. You can't help but love a guy that fights for his girl and doesn't give up no matter what.

The problem I had with the book that it often got too... sentimental, mushy. The hotness lacked a lot and I see others missed that. Nick even promised some light bondage and play but it never actually happened. I liked the side story of what was happening with the human exstremists - I like my romance with some pot action; and that Trey and Taryn and the rest of the Phoenix pack made some appearance. All in all, I liked it more then I thought I would. Can't wait to see who's next!

PS: I want a story with Roni! Should Dominic be her match? I see something there...

Until next time,

  1. I haven't read the first book, but this series sounds good. Your first sentence made me laugh, and now I'm very curious!
