Ava Rhys has always chafed at submitting to the authority of her pack’s alpha, but when he tries to sell her body in return for money and influence, she decides she would be better off on her own. Ava’s plans to live as a lone wolf in the backwoods of Maine are thrown into turmoil, however, when the local game warden makes it his business to take her in hand, and the battle-hardened former Army Ranger soon proves to be just as fiercely dominant as any alpha shifter.
Declan Collins knows a woman in need of a man’s firm hand when he sees one, and it isn’t long before Ava is kneeling naked at his feet with her well-spanked bare bottom on display. Once he has taught her a better use for her sassy mouth, she quickly finds herself screaming her helpless, shameful submission into the bedsheets as he claims her so roughly and so thoroughly that she is left in no doubt that she belongs to him and there is nothing whatsoever she can do about it.
With each passing day he masters her body ever more completely, never hesitating to punish any hint of defiance before using and enjoying her in ways more humiliating than she could have ever imagined. But when instinct causes her to bite him in the throes of yet another intense, desperate climax, will she lose him forever or will she end up mated to an alpha shifter after all?
CChase 5.0 out of 5 stars Ava and Declan story Reviewed in the United States on February 13, 2019Verified Purchase At first I wasn't to sure about Ava , after reading her story . I understand why she was way she was with others.way she raised . She didn't want to believe in fated mates. Ran from her pack when they were going to look for a mate for her. Then she met Declan, almost feel the sparks from them . Hot heavy . Even thought first she didn't want nothing to do with him . The chemistry between them was off the charts. Enjoyed reading Ava's story. Wayward mates series keeps getting better and better. Already amazing from the first book .
Marybeth 5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT series! Reviewed in the United States on February 3, 2019Verified Purchase When we were first introduced to Ava, she was not a loved character. But, she spoke to the author and her story was written. It turns out she is just misunderstood! Ava wants a love, but she doesn't believe in fated mates. When she escapes from her pack, she goes to the United States and starts over. But, fate is keeping an eye on her and she meets Declan. Their story is wonderful and I love how the complications are resolved! This series keeps getting better. I can't wait for the next book!
TLG 4.0 out of 5 stars Great read Reviewed in the United States on March 7, 2019Verified Purchase Ava runs from Wales to escape a forced mating. She unwittingly puts herself in the clutches of her mate - her human mate. What's an alpha wolf girl to do? Steamy as all heck. Still don't like men's attitudes. Alphas. Bleh.
Renee 5.0 out of 5 stars Yay! Ava's story... my favorite so far Reviewed in the United States on February 2, 2019Verified Purchase I think this is my favorite so far in this series. Ava was not a character I liked in an earlier story. However in this story we see another side of her. Declan is so dominant even as a human. I really liked how quickly and easily he took to the idea shifters and wolves. He is the perfect fated mate to Ava. Their chemistry is purely explosive. This series just keeps getting better and better.
