Surrender to the Chase (Under Realms Assassins #2) has received 4 of 5 Stars from
"Surrender to the Chase was a nice little 'happy dance' kind of read for me. Too often, it feels authors get fixated on a specific word count and as a result, the story itself gets buried in all the padding. Trim. the. fat. as Ms. Greene has done so well. I can only speak for myself but I have a hectic schedule, (on a good day!) and so my reading time is precious.
This is a quick start type of story, it hits the ground running. It's been a year since Ethan's friend, fellow assassin, was killed. His first job since the tragedy is a bit of a head scratcher. He's an assassin, not a babysitter. He doesn't have the time nor the patience to chase after some shifter princess runaway. I was sold on Ethan right out the gate. The vampire has a chip on his shoulder but harbors a lot of pain. Ms. Greene provides just enough inner monologue to allow you to get to know him without it going on and on to where you feel like he's always in his head and never shuts up. On a shallow note, a vamp named Ethan, for whatever reason, totally and completely works for me [...] This brings me to two other characters that I can't wait to learn more about. Jaxon and Lance appear just briefly but I cannot wait for each of their books. PLEASE let them both have their own book! The Under Realm Assassins series is definitely one I'll keep an eye on, can't wait for book 3!"
A year after the tragic death of his close friend and fellow assassin, Ethan Halstead is ready to take up his sniper rifle once more. But his first assignment is nothing he ever expected. Ethan must hunt and retrieve a beautiful, spirited, alluring werewolf.
Knowing no other way to escape an arranged marriage, Fraya flees from her pack. As she contemplates slipping across the border and heading to South America, she is captured by a dangerously seductive vampire who plans on escorting her back to her family. Even as Fraya vows to make Ethan’s mission as difficult as possible, she can’t resist the riotous desire he sparks within her.
But Ethan isn’t the only predator that peruses Fraya. A powerful rival pack’s alpha wants to make her his mate. Will Ethan be able to keep Fraya safe and return her to her pack? Or will he surrender to temptation and claim Fraya as his own?
