Redrabbitt TOP 1000 REVIEWER 5.0 out of 5 stars NOTHING VENTURED—NOTHING GAINED Reviewed in the United States on May 19, 2021 Verified Purchase The prequel to set up this series did a fantastic job of introducing the main characters featured in the following four books. These are the sons of Hannah Waverly, Cade, Cash, Cole, and Clay, who will each have their own story. But this prequel starts sad, with Hannah's death, the reading of her will, and the responsibilities of her sons. The series is a paranormal shifter with steamy heat and power exchange. Cade Waverly is with Delta Forces and only in town long enough for the funeral, and then he must leave on another mission—that is his life. He is the oldest of the sons. The Waverly sons have secrets—they are mountain lion shifters. While they can mate with a human, and their offspring would be full-blooded, his mate would not. Cade has known that Trey was his—but right now, it isn't the right time. "He'd known Trey was his bonded spirit—the one to make him complete in each of his nine lives." Teresa 'Trey' Mitchell has always had a thing for Cade, but he usually is away. After the funeral, she will invite him back to her place where they have a night of passion—and then he is gone. Fast forward ten years and Cade is leaving the military and is ready to track down Trey, a Special Agent with the FBI. What a shock when he decides to shift and take a run off the Appalachian Trail and overhears a group of men and their intent for a female. Even crazier, it is Trey, and she isn't armed. He will rescue her and keep her safe until law enforcement arrives. Now, it is time for this big kitty to go after his girl. The story is the beginning of Cade and Trey's relationship, where she will discover that he is a dominant man who means business. He respects her job and knows how impressive it is that she has climbed the ladder within the FBI, but she is his, and that comes first. He will find out where she will be—meets her and takes her back to his motel where they reconnect. "If this was insanity, then, by all means, let crazy rule." The story is full of action, adventure, mystery, suspense, passion, romance with a dominant man and a woman who loves him enough to acquiesce and submit. Now, it is time for them to start their life away from the rat race and back in Idaho. The following story will be more on Cade and Trey in Untamed. "When my life is over, I want to know I spent it with you."
Intel Chicky Reads Romance 4.0 out of 5 stars Prequel to the series Reviewed in the United States on May 20, 2021 Verified Purchase This book was actually a prequel for the next, which was not clear when I started reading it. The story was a bit disjointed, jumping a bit from scene to scene, making me feel a bit lost at times. I really enjoyed both the characters as well as the overall storyline, just wish it flowed a bit easier. I have a feeling this prequel could've easily been added to the next book for an overall more enjoyable experience.
TiltedHalo54 5.0 out of 5 stars Love to last a lifetime Reviewed in the United States on May 18, 2021 Verified Purchase I loved this story. It was spicy and sexy and a little bit angsty. Cades mother had passed, he and his brothers inherited most of her holdings, the father the main stretch. He couldn’t sell it, only lease it. The brothers were not very happy with that. Just as things were heating up the father fell off his horse. What happened? You need to read the rest of the story, can’t wait to read the rest of this exciting series.
Rhonda Hicks VINE VOICE 5.0 out of 5 stars I'm hooked!! Reviewed in the United States on July 1, 2021 Verified Purchase WHEW! 'Determined' is the first book in Delta James's "Ghost Cat Canyon" series and what an exhilarating storyline she has provided. She's painted a picture of the landscape that is the backdrop of the movie that plays out in my mind as I'm reading. Hannah Waverly, the mother of Cade, Cash, Cole, and Clay, has been murdered. We experience the set of events and know what happened but we're left with the mystery of who did it. Was it her abusive, soon-to-be ex-husband Cyrus or perhaps Lorna, the woman who was sent to them in hopes of finding a mate? We do meet Cade and Teresa, aka Trey. Cade, like the rest of his brothers, is a mountain lion shifter and Trey is his fated mate or soul bond. Even with Fate playing a hand sometimes there needs to be a second chance at things and these two have definitely proved that theory. With action, adventure, mystery, suspense, passion, domestic discipline, this was definitely a great way to begin a series. I'm hooked!!
