Never Cry Wolf by Cynthia Eden


Lucas Simone is not the kind of guy you mess with. He's big, he's strong, and his eyes hint at a wilder side most women can't handle. Of course, that's because his predatory instincts are no metaphor—he's a genuine Grade-A top-quality werewolf, tough enough to fight his way to dominance over the scariest pack on the West Coast. There's only one chink in his armor. Unlike most alpha dogs, Lucas has a reputation for protecting the weak and innocent.
Sarah King is counting on that protective impulse—it's the only thing standing between her and certain death. There are only two problems: one, she's not quite as innocent as she'd like Lucas to believe. And two, if he doesn't stop stoking Sarah's animal lust, it's only a matter of time before her own wild side gets unleashed. . .



 This story had so many secrets revealed, and twists and turns, where to begin??

Sarah King is seeking the protection of the LA pack Alpha, Lucas Simone and his pack. Bringing with her, a bounty on her head, and a lot of secrets and half truths. Sarah is running from Rafael Santiago, an alpha from a different pack. Sarah has a bit of history with Rafael, one that ended on a bad note, you could say. And Rafe has the misconception that Sarah is his mate, but he is the one who placed the bounty on her head, and Rafe has more of an agenda that just seeking out Sarah, he’s also seeking his own vengeance against Lucas. And Sarah running to Lucas plays right into his scheme. Rafe has lots of players in his quest for revenge on Lucas, some even in unsuspecting places.

Sarah is a  “Charmer”,  someone who is able to communicate telepathically with animals. Each Charmer has one type of animal that they are able to communicate with, but there is something a bit more special about Sarah’s ability. Sarah has known from a very young age that she was different, and never truly feeling like she belonged, and this is the one thing she wants most. Sarah turns out to be quite the fighter, and willing to give everything for what she wants.

Lucas…. *sigh*, Where do I begin with this sexy beast of a man??? He’s definitely Alpha, he’s dominating, possessive, protective, loyal, honorable, and HAWT!! He’s had his share of bad hands dealt to him, Starting with the murder of his father when he was 10yrs old. His mother took off way before then, and he’s never really had anyone to care about him, except for his brother, that he only found out about when he was 16yrs old.

Lucas and Sarah are attracted to each other instantly, but it’s their journey, and secrets revealed, the building of trust, and willing to give everything, and give up everything for each other that makes their story so awesome. *sob*

Every character in this book had a purpose. From the wolf packs, to the coyotes, and
the humans, a vampire, a dragon, a fire wielding demon, and a voodoo priestess, they all had a role, and many of them had secrets revealed, and betrayal in their part. I had a lot of questions while reading this, but by the end, all was revealed. The plotting was tight , and I love how Eden has already set the stage for future books, everything was woven together nicely throughout the story. And Cynthia Eden can write a smexy scene to make your toes curl!! I’m really looking forward to the next installment in this series.

Thanks ladies! You've got my ego flaring (as Elena would say).
I've read Eden's romantic suspense books, and I like her PNR best. I did enjoy this book a lot.

I only skimmed the review since I have this one in my TBR pile and I didn't want to know too much! :) Glad you liked it so it will probably sneak up the pile a bit.

Sherri, I'm the same way. You never know where you might stumble upon a spoiler, but I never put any in my reviews. I try to write the kind of review I would want to read. I hope you enjoy it.
