VBT: REVIEW/ SPOTLIGHT/ GIVEAWAY - WOLF FEVER BY MILLY TAIDEN


WOLF FEVER
BY
MILLY TAIDEN


Blurb

When Raine Bowe volunteers for a sleep study for the extra cash, she didn't expect to wake in a lab or to be victimized by a mad scientist. She escapes with one objective--to find someone strong enough to wage war with the evil growing inside her. 

Ryder Storm is a man with a reputation--the bad boy of his own universe. He doesn't take prisoners, won't give into a sweet smile, and doesn't cut his pack an inch of slack. He knows the desperate woman in his bar is his the moment he lays eyes on her. He'll give her anything she wants, except the one thing she's begging for. Death.

Raine enlists Ryder’s help to unravel the mystery surrounding the hours she lost in the lab and to help tame the beast inside her. In their search for answers, the road will lead them to a twisted experiment involving shifters, humans, and the creation of the ultimate Alpha. He's ready for the adventure and she's ready for her answers. Neither are ready for the lust that calls down from the mating moon. But a wolf knows its mate, and an alpha will not stop until he or she gets what they want.



REVIEW:

Wolf Fever

Wolf Fever is the first book that I have read by Milly Taiden, but it will most definitely not be the last.  This book was a thrill ride from beginning to end.

Rain Bowe is in need of some extra cash, so she volunteers for a sleep study program. She wakes up confused in a lab, and realizes she has lost a week of her life. She knows something is wrong, and that she's different inside. She just doesn't know how much she's changed.

Rain realizes she needs help when things really start getting crazy, and she turns to the only person she knows that can help her, Ryder Storm.

Ryder recognizes Rain for what she is the minute he sees her. He is instantly attracted to her, and wants her for his mate. All he wants to do is help her, love, and protect her from her enemies. Rain is just as attracted to Ryder, and she knows she needs him, if she's ever going to learn the truth about what happened to her.

This book was all kinds of awesome! The plot was original, action packed, and exciting. The story grabs you, and doesn't let go. The heroine is feisty, strong, and capable. She was also vulnerable, and knew how to accept help. She was very easy to identify with, and instantly like able.

Ryder..O.M.G! I want one of him. He was so sweet and protective of Rain. He is definitely every woman's dream of the ultimate alpha male (swoon). I really liked his character, he was strong, caring, sexy, and absolute in his belief of keeping Rain safe, and making her his.

The sexual tension between them two sucked all the air out of the virtual room. They were seriously hot for each other. The sexual encounters  were smoking hot, sexy, and written very well. They were at times humorous, which lent a air of fun to this novel.

I am so looking forward to the next book in this series, really I am. Milly Taiden is a super star! If you are a fan of paranormal romance, then you have gots to pick this book up. You will so not be disappointed.

5 STARS / 5



Excerpt
Run!
The loud hammering of Raine’s heart drowned out the single word bouncing around her mind—and the dogs barking at her back. Their angry growls faded the faster she ran. A little further. Just a little more, and she’d be home free.
Trees swooshed past her with every step she took away from the small isolated facility. She ignored the hospital gown swinging against her legs and the blood dripping down her arms from the torn IVs. Barefoot, the rocks bit into the soles of her feet. None of that mattered. She had to survive. Her life depended on getting as far away from that place as possible.
Inhaling the comforting scent of mud, trees, and the wild, she barely heard the barking over the breeze rustling through the willows with each step she put between them. At any other time, she’d have dissected her reaction to the forest. Not now. And she didn’t stop. No way was she getting captured again without a fight.
Air beat in and out of her lungs in tandem with the pounding of her feet on the rocky ground. Moonlight filtered through the branches overhead, highlighting her path. Her hair caught on the tree limbs, snatching at the loose strands. Some of the hanging vines prodded her arms and stabbed her sides. Her breath hitched, and she missed a step, lurching forward. Something inside her tightened. Her arms swayed and her core muscles flexed. Before she face planted, everything balanced out. She blinked. More scared now than she’d ever been in her life. Something controlled her body and it had reflexes far superior to a normal human.
Moisture gathered in her eyes, blurring her vision. She blinked it away. Panic would only get her caught.
Raine glanced at the moon. It had shifted twice—now in front of her, rather than behind. She stilled. The trees rustled with the wind. An owl hooted. But she still didn’t hear the annoying bay of the dogs.
Ragged breaths beat hard in her ears. A horn’s blare sounded in the distance. Fear and excitement gave her a burst of energy. Cars meant help. She urged her body faster.
Street lights peeked through the trees. Air panted out of her chest. A second car honked, speeding past another. She was almost there. So close. Thank god. She was going to make it.
Slowing down at the edge of a hill, she darted glances around the now quiet street. No people milled about or walked around. Nothing. A big store, one she recognized from the one time she’d gotten lost in the shadier side of town, sat a block to her right. The sudden quiet made sense now. Nothing good happened this far south of Tempting Eats. It was known as the dead side. The thought alone gave her chills. Women went missing…all the time. That had been enough to keep her uptown in suburbia-peace-nation.
She glanced around, searching for anyone who might be waiting for her or even any of the dangerous men her neighbors said roamed the streets, but there was nothing, not a single being. Her feet hit the pavement in a rush. Once across the street, she hid inside a dark alley. The stench of rotting food and piss coated the air with a thick blanket of disease and chaos. Her throat convulsed, and the acidic taste of bile hit the back of her tongue.
Retreating, she took several steps toward the end of the street to a small motel. Its yellow, neon Vacancy sign blinked on and off with a buzz. A man’s yell pushed her to slink into the dark. The sound came from the shadows in front of the motel.

  2. Great new series to try! You give me Fever ... Loved this story! 5 star review links below...
    Favorite passage: Damn but the man was sexy. Not just the body, or the award-winning tongue, it was the way he carried himself. What he'd said was true. He was definitely the

    alpha. No other animal had that type of commanding presence.
