What I really enjoyed about this book was the believable way that the author showed us how Ben managed to redeem himself in Heather's eyes, and make both Heather and the reader forgive him without making Heather seem weak or gullible as a result.
I love a good shifter romance and the great characterization of this novel meant that instead of Ben being portrayed as an irrational overly aggressive male, he became understandably vulnerable and most importantly lovable. I like that this is a little out of the ordinary, but a lovely romance.
One mistake that could cost him his mate.
Ben is a tiger shifter, from a line of possessive, dominant, and controlling men. They cannot bear for another to touch their woman. He’s never imagined having a woman of his own, but in the most unlikely person, he finds his mate.
Heather has known about shifters, and she’s best friends with a leopard shifter. On the night of a barbeque she gets a shock of a lifetime. She’s the destined mate to Ben, the guy her best friend wants so desperately. What can Heather do but refuse, for her friend’s sake?
Emotions are running high, and Ben attacks Heather when he loses control. Afterward, there’s nothing he can do but wait it out. How can Heather fall in love with the man who scarred her? Against all the odds and with time, Ben hopes to recapture what he’s lost. Without his mate, there is no future for him. But can Heather be strong enough to love him? And would her friend ever forgive her for walking away?
