5 "Hunt me baby!" Stars!

Hunted, book 5 and final book in this series was more than I could have even asked for.

In this book we hear from the brothers, Lucas, Roman, Charlie and Tyler. Roman has arranged some "family time" for the brothers and their others, and in true Hunter Brother's fashion, not a whole lot goes as planned.

This series is one of my favorites and I was thrilled when the author offered me an ARC of this book to review. I devoured it, much like I did all the others in this series. If you've read the first four books, you'll know that each book was told from the wife/girlfriend/SO's point of view with the final chapter(s), told from the respective brother's point of view. I really looked forward to those chapters, to hear from the brothers. So when this book was going to be all from their POV, with a fresh, not regurgitated story, as sometimes happens when you write a book solely from another character's point of view in the same series, I knew I *had* to read it! I was *not* disappointed!

Thank you, LJ, for allowing me to read this one in advance. I can't wait to see where you go next!

4 *What A Surprise* Stars

"What we shared was pure obsession, nothing more and nothing less, it was the sweetest madness in hell."
This one started out a little slow for me, but at around 50% it picked up and never slowed down!

Rafe was sent to jail for 8 years for a crime he didn't commit. Accused of raping his best friends sister he lost his fighting career and the respect of many of his friends and neighbors. But there were still those that never believed he was guilty.

Alex is the girl that sent him to prison and she knows he's coming back for her. And now that he's been in released after 8 long years, she knows her days are numbered.

And she's right.

She packs a bag, intent on running, from not only the threat of Rafe, but from her step-brother, Zach and all the demons he's caused in Alex's life. She never gets the chance to leave, Rafe gets to her first.

Alex loved Rafe, the Rafe he was when they were kids, but after 8 years of hard time, he's not the same protector she remembers. He's cruel and twisted and live to humiliate and debase Alex, making her pay for her false accusations.

"Nothing mattered so long as she surrendered her soul to my demon and let him devour her."
But, Rafe realizes there is something darker at play here, a secret that Alex is keeping from him. Something even darker than he can imagine.

"Howl for me. Come undone. I'll put you back together."
He will get the truth out of her by
means possible. Sex is his weapon, and Alex is his downfall. But Rafe knows her one real weakness, will he use it against her to get at the truth? There's only one way to find out. Read. This. Book!

*Warning*, this book ends in a major cliffhanger, so be sure to have book two on hand as it's picks up in the very moment this one ends. I promise you, once you hit the last page of this one, you'll want to turn the first page on the second one!

This was a great ride, and I can't wait to see where the next book takes me!
