Publisher's Summary

The golden rule of shallow flings is not to get attached, right? Well, Havana Ramos broke it. Big time. There's just something about Tate Devereaux that pulls at her. Assertive, compelling, and self-assured, the Alpha cat shifter pushes every one of her best buttons. Like really, really hard. Having overheard an enlightening conversation, she knows he won't give her more than a fling-something, to be fair, he'd told her well in advance. If she doesn't want her heart to get bruised, it's time to end what little they have. It's not like he'll care or anything. Except...it turns out that he does.

Newly appointed Alpha Tate Devereaux is never bothered when women walk away. He can't exactly blame them, given his distrustful cat's habit of withdrawing from relationships. But when lone shifter Havana ends their fling, everything within Tate rebels against it - including his cat. Even as she and Tate work together to crush the threat looming over her, Havana holds him at arm's length. But if she thinks she can end their fling with no real explanation and that he'll just tip his hat and walk away, she's forgotten one very important thing - there's nothing easy about shaking off an Alpha.

Contains mature themes.

Great story but I miss Jill Redfield!

The story is great as always, but Samantha Cook isn't the best fit. Honestly, she would be fine if she had spent an hour listening to any of the Phoenix Pack or Mercury Pack books. Her voices for characters introduced in those series suck. She makes Dominic sound like a whiny creep not the sexy god from the prior books who just happens to spout off crazy stuff. She even made Taryn sound airy not like the bada** she is.

Please bring back Jill Redfield! Or at least make Samantha Cook listen to at least one of the old books!!

A wonderfully crazy adventure.

I am a big fan of all Suzanne Wright stories and this is no exception. Tate and Havana are perfect for each other. Havana is a very strong woman who knows what is better for herself and will make the hard choices just because they are right. Tate is a work in progress but when he makes up this mind nothing will stop him. It is always fun to check in with the Devereaux family. And I loved Bailey and Aspen. They made me laugh so hard.

🌻Better than the last couple of books!🌻

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻V from Kansas🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

I just love SW’s series. They are sexually explicit and contain quite a bit of violence but, it fits the world she has built. I absolutely loved the Mercury and Phoenix pack series, therefore, I was excited to see the announcement of this series. Unfortunately, the last couple of books have been a bit flat and a bit of a disappointment. However, the plot of this book was much more exciting and seemed more complete.

In addition, the narration by Samantha Cook, has book quite good. Her voices aren’t quite as sexy as the past narrator,but good, none the same.

I’m eagerly anticipating the next release, in this series.

over all three stars because of narrator

The story was five stars. Bailey and Aspen were hilarious. The problem I have with listening to this and the first book is narrator. When characters from The Phenoix and Mercury books were brought into these, it really got to the way the dominant makes sounded like pansies. Don't get me started about Greta's voice. I love the characters from this new series however this probably will be my last audiobook if Samantha Cook is continued to be the narrator.

AmazBalls!!!

Great character development and world building. I love this series and the previous two other series. I’m so glad Tate found a great partner she is a great main character and her girls were hilarious. The narrator was amazing as always. Can’t wait for the next book in the series.

Treat those how you want to be treated

The bear cat and mamba are hilarious best friends. Suzanne knows how to bring to life these shifters and I love it. It was nice to add members of the Phoenix and Mercy even for a brief moment. Can't wait for book #3.

This book really explored the moral of how you treat people. It can sometimes come back to haunt you in ways you never expected and karma never forgets. So beware.

Samantha Cook's narration is good. I wish her male voices were a little more distinct but overall a nice job.

Great book!

Havana and Tate make a great pair. Unfortunately both are blinded by the truth of their feelings toward each other and what that means not only to themselves, but also what their choice to explore a commitment will bring to them and the Pride. Of course there is always complications! Not everything goes as planned! Suzanne’s books are always red hot! This is a great addition to this series!

Loved it!

I love the way the female characters are very strong, bullheaded, and know what they want. I like the story just as much. This is my second book so I was familiar with some of the characters. I like have she involved some characters from the first book into this book.

Narrator makes all the difference.

This is the 2nd book of the Olympus Series and I like it but I just can't love it. Samantha Cook does a decent job but after listening to Jill Redfield narrate both Phoenix and Mercury pack series, Samantha just doesn't bring the characters to life.
The editing mistakes did help either.

So many mistakes

First, let me start by saying I *love* Suzanne Wright’s books. They all have a great world build and great characters. This book isn’t an exception.
I also think Samantha Cook is an awesome narrator.
However, this book loses its greatness by mediocre editing. Mistakes like ‘he is licking his ear’ or ‘tracing her nose with his ear shelf’ and a Tasmanian Devil shifter suddenly having an inner cat.
I hope this mistakes get fixed soon because it doesn’t do the author, the narrator, nor the book justice

Ok-good for this genre

This book was ok-good. About what you’d expect for this genre. Wish the stories grabbed me and dragged me in more though.

Ioved it

I absolutely love Suzanne Wright I have and have read/listened to all her books and loved them all the only reason I'm writing this is that if you're as big a fan as I am you would have noticed the mistake in the book a miner mistake. When talking about Harley from the Mercury pack she is a margay shifter (cat) not a wolf shifter I did feel a little disappointed that this miner mistake wasn't noticed by anyone before it was published. But as ever I still love all her books and I am waiting on pins for the next book
