What would you do if the one fate chose for you vanished into thin air? What would you give up? Who would you become to stay with that person?

Krista Bell finally knows what it’s like to be free. The torture she endured at the hands of her psychotic father have unleashed the monster her mother tried so hard to help her suppress. The only thing she wants to do is be the shadow in the night that everyone is afraid of.

Taser is barely holding it together. He lost Kris once to her father and now he’s losing her to the monster she is becoming. He’s also barely containing his own monster since Krista decided she didn’t need her mates anymore. Nathan is still near but he may not be enough.

Nathan is on the verge of losing not one but both of his mates. One vanished without a trace. The other is avoiding him. He has run out of patience with them both.

But when the monster that Krista has become comes to them with a proposal will they take her up on it and possibly lose themselves or will they try to talk her down and get the beast to put back on her chain?

Excerpt

Krista made her way down the hall and into the office she knew her mates would be. They were not going to like what she had to say but right now it was about her. She was tired of putting others before herself. Tired of pretending to be someone that she wasn’t. She paused for a moment in the doorway to look at her mates one last time. They were rung tight from her self-imposed seclusion and she knew this was only going to be the beginning of their heartache.

She took a moment to really look at her mates. They were total contrasts to each other. Where Taser was standing at only five-foot-five-inches and weighing one hundred and seventy five pounds. He had dirty blonde hair that stuck out all over the place and hazel eyes. On the other hand, Nathan stood at just less than seven feet and weighted over three hundred pounds of pure muscle. He had black hair with the most mesmerizing green eyes flecked with gold, belaying his paranormal status. They were both handsome. Any girl would be lucky to have just one of them as a mate.

Yet her she was ready to give them both up. It couldn’t be helped so no use in delaying the inevitable. Without preamble Krista spoke the words all men dread.

“We need to talk. Now.”

“Now you’re ready to talk,” Nathan said with an arched eyebrow.

“It’s about damn time,” was Taser’s reply.

Krista saw where this conversation was going to go before it started. Both her mates were upset and yet she still couldn’t bring herself to care, much. She knew what she had to do and she didn’t plan on changing her mind.

“Are you both going to be assholes or listen to what I have to say?” Krista asked.

“Fine. Speak,” Taser barked.

Speak! What was she a damn dog? Krista was fuming and she could feel the air around her zinging with her anger.

“Careful how you speak to me,” she threatened in a low voice. “I am not some common animal that you can issue commands and receive obedience in return. You will do well to remember who and what I am.”

“Let’s all calm down and take a seat. We have just been worried. Taser didn’t mean anything by it. Let’s not fight but instead have a civilized conversation,” Nathan said. He didn’t need anyone losing their cool right now. Emotions were already running high as it was.

“Before the rudeness was introduced, what I was trying to say is I will be leaving here today and never returning. I’ve given this a lot of thought and there is just no way I can continue this existence how I was. I am no longer that person. I have changed. There is no point in a discussion because nothing you say will change my mind. The both of you will also not be joining me,” Krista stated.

Was she serious with this shit? She walks in here like she owns the world and decrees that she is leaving not only the pack lands but also her mates behind. Did she think we were supposed to be okay with it? Nathan was utterly speechless. Never in all his years would he have expected this shit when he found his Nyhiya. He could feel the rage building and getting ready to burst free.

“Come again?” Taser asked. “I think I may have misheard what you just said. I could have sworn it sounded like you were abandoning your mates.”

“No need to be dramatic. It’s not like you only have one mate. Nathan will keep you company but unfortunately I have things to do. Mates would only hold me back from my destiny. I don’t need any weaknesses my enemies could exploit. Now if you both will excuse me, I have preparations to make.”

With those parting words, Krista got up and walked out of the office. She didn’t have time to waste. She had to gather the few things she had here and leave to begin her hunt. She wasn’t sure where she was starting but she was sure she was leaving here tonight and by any means necessary.

review2

I was given this book, by the author and Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock for an honest review.

Following 9 months after Dark Indiscretions, this is Krista’s story. Jennifer’s daughter has returned from her father and his abuse, changed. Her monster is out and she has no intention of shutting it away again. Taz and Nathan are left behind while she goes off and hunts, but they are both struggling. Krista returns and kidnaps Taz, keeping him in his wolf form to do her bidding. After her father contacts her from beyond, she needs Nathan too, and goes back, but not before she returns Taz his free will, and he lets rip! Neither mate is happy, well actually NO ONE in this book has anything to be happy about!!

Jennifer is pregnant and when Krista threatens both her, and the unborn, Jackson and Taylor are gunning for Krista’s blood. Jennifer is also, she makes the decision that Krista is no longer her daughter and (straight from the book) needs to be put down. But something is going on with Jackson and Taylor, although this is not made clear, and I suspect will come out in another book.

Krista’s father is returned from beyond, and gets a little bit of a shock! Someone from Jennifer’s past also returns, but not from beyond.

I found this book less rushed than the first one, although it does move at a fast pace, and had I been able to stay awake, I would I finished it on 2 hours yesterday. kept me age turning, I tell ya!! I also enjoyed it more than Dark Indiscretions. M/M and M/F/M scenes, although less than in book one. again, these characters are deadly and make no apologises for that, and I am beginning to see another side to them, not just the one they portray on the page. maybe its because ive read the two books close together, I dunno, but I am beginning to understand these dark and deadly creatures, and why they are as they are. it wasn’t something that came across in book one! i’ll be looking out for the next in this series, soon I hope, since I want to know whats going on with Jackson and Taylor, and whether Krista will reign her monster in, if she chooses, AND what is James going to do with his shock!! (whatever it is, James wont be nice about it!)
