Book Junky Girls: Review of Surrender to the Chase
(Under Realm Assassins #2)
Fraya is determined to escape the arranged marriage her father has set up for her, but she never expected the man sent to take her back. Except he isn't a man she her wolf wants him no matter what he is.
Ethan will do his job even if it is one he doesn't really care to do, until he starts to get to know his target and then he realizes there was more to this mission than met the eye.
Fraya is a strong woman willing to do whatever was necessary to survive. She also just wants a place to be free without others dictating her life.
Ethan is a hard man to read, but you see that realizing there is something he wants more than doing his job is new to him and I enjoyed seeing the emotions run through him throughout this one.
The story was fast paced and shorter than I would have liked, but what was there was very enjoyable. The world created was interesting, but there was not allot of information about it and that made it a bit harder to get into.
Overall this was a good short novella.
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?
