Publisher's Summary

What happens when you choose not to accept fate? Elise Westin is obsessed with one thing: avoid Patrick O'Connell at all costs. She knows the handsome foreigner is her one true mate. She knows they are destined to be together. Knowing it doesn't stop her from fighting it the only way she knows how . . . run and hide. But hiding from him can only last so long. 

Fate, with the help of her family, forces her to come face to face with him. Will she be able to confront her own fears and accept love? Or will she lose it all by fighting her own destiny?  

Patrick O'Connell has given up everything: banished from his own pack, living in a foreign territory. He's chasing a dream that he was raised to believe doesn't exist. But he knows he's found his one true mate. She's real. One whiff of the dark-haired beauty changes the path of his life forever. With nothing else to lose, he won't stop until he finds her again. But Elise doesn't want to be found. Can he win the heart of his elusive mate? Can Patrick break down Elise's barrier of fears to find their happily ever after? Contains mature themes.

not that bad and not that good

this is the slowest of all the series I wish the writer would have had the witches in the books more you only get to see (or hear) of them twice in all of the books it would have made the series much better not only that the last book doesn't close all the open doors so to speak it all could have been so much better

Mate or boyfriend

Unlike the first book, this one centers on a heroine who is less than intelligent. She treats her true mate as one would expect her to treat a possible boyfriend that is not particularly compelling. By contrast the hero is all in and very appealing. This book is written around a false problem wholly created in the heroine’s mind. I’m half way through the book and can’t decide if I care to finish it. How can any wolf in this book universe not understand the nature of a true mate? You would think that she has never seen or had true mates explained to her. She is presented with the dream of every shifter and can’t decide if she wants it or not. Really??? That is beyond annoying.

CHILDISH!

Elise was an idiot. Patrick gave up everything for her & she kept stringing him along & then pushing him away..Instead of explaining her fears to him, she acted like a horny teenage for most of the book, getting herself kidnapped & putting his life in danger.By the time they mated, I was hoping he was wrong & she wasn't his true mate. He deserved better.

Could not finish

Stories about selfish princesses are not my thing. Another pet peeve is a book where the main character is trying to self sacrifice just for the sake of it. They are so focused on their martyrdom they do not clue into the fact they are doing more harm to the greater good. It may get better but I could not finish.

More of PG13

Good story, but felt like it was meant for young adolescents or something. I saw some reviews saying it was sexually explicit, that’s absolutely not true, the steamy scenes end so fast that y don’t even know what just happened, if you read books like Phenix Pack or Mercury Pack, this is nothing. There is no steamy scenes or anything . So far the cleanest book I read hahah.

sloooooowwww snoooooze fest

Loved the first book, but I barely finished this one. So slow and nothing really happens. Hated the female narrator's rendition of Patrick. Elise makes no sense to me and she is the main female character. Really didnt enjoy this one, but I wanted to finish it to give book 3 a try. Fingers crossed it's better than this snooze fest.

I wanted to like it. But it was painful.

It might have gotten better, but after two hours of listening as the main female character made every possible bad decision, I gave up when someone locked her in an office with her cell phone, but does she call the cops? Someone who could help her? No, she calls her sister-in-laws voice mail, but doesn't tell her whats happening because "she doesn't want to worry her" oh, and her phone was out of battery, because she didn't charge it. The book may have turned into The Lord Of The Rings meets LA Confidential after that, but I will never find out.

Amazing Westin Pack 2!

This book continues where the first left off. Characters were well thought out.. Love how it refers back to Kyle and Kelsey as well as the other siblings and parents. (spoiler alert) Kelsey is more powerful in this book and Kyle says he knows she's been practicing. The narrators were great. Love the Irish lilt in male character's voice. just a great book all around and steamy love scenes too.

Keep the additional books coming audible. Great job Ms. Trettel another home run.

Enjoy!

I enjoyed this book. It is in a series and I don't think this book was as good as the 1st or 3rd but it is an easy book to listen too and is quite enjoyable, if your looking for a book that is an easy listen. I will continue to listen to this series as I'm enjoying the story. I would recommend you listen to the in order as they have little quirks you can follow along with.
