To truly have her, he must free her from her dark secret…
Enforcer Erin Flynn has dedicated her life to protecting her kind. But keeping her heart safe from Noah Campbell, the smoking-hot shifter who saved her life last year, is more difficult. The deadly beauty would love to sink into his arms and become his mate, but she knows she can’t—he must never know about her dark past.
When Erin is sent to investigate the disappearances of pregnant shifters in New Orleans, Erin and Noah find themselves involved in a mystery more sinister than anyone expected. And as Erin delves further into the crimes, chilling information about her own past is revealed. The people who wanted her dead in the first place are trying to finish the job, and Noah wants nothing more than to shield her from harm. But can Erin truly trust Noah and let him see the wounded beast she’s hidden for so long?
Along with a wonderfully compelling and intriguing plot AVENGER'S HEAT also brings new meaning to sexual tension when it comes to Erin and Noah's burgeoning relationship. With all of that tension building up every small emotional revelation and tender moment was made all the more powerful and poignant. Aside from my mental shouting at these characters to just talk already I really enjoyed seeing their relationship evolve from friends to lovers. Both Erin and Noah have their dark pasts and I enjoyed seeing how the worked through their pasts together. They work amazingly well together when investigating and in a fight which highlighted the fact that they were meant to be together. I felt really bad for Erin and what she went through before AVENGER'S HEAT and admired her ability to in a way keep on going especially in regards to the plot which hits Erin very close to home.
The plot was pretty dark and twisted with exciting suprieses that had me unable to put AVENGER'S HEAT down. I enjoyed not only learning more about werewolves but also learning more about how the vampires in this world function. The difference between bitten and bloodborn vampires was great to learn about and played a big role in the plot. I also enjoyed the fact that we got to go off the pack ranch to New Orleans which helped make the Moon Shifter world feel bigger.
The one small issue I had with AVENGER'S HEAT was the fact that Brianna's relationship story which cut into Erin and Noah's story. I loved reading more about Brianna (the resident fae) and wished she had her own full length book so we could spend more quality time with her and learn more about the fae world.
The Moon Shifter world keeps on getting bigger and better with each book. AVENGER'S HEAT contains off the charts sexual tension and chemistry, with a richly detailed plot filled with action and heavy emotion.
