When raven shifter Riley Porter was given sanctuary by the Phoenix Pack, she let them believe she had left her flock. Reluctant to divulge the secrets of her past, she was still embraced as family. Only Tao Lukas, the protective and passionate Head Enforcer of the pack, was resistant to the enigmatic shifter. Until Riley started to arouse in him something other than suspicion.
Tao doesn’t trust lone shifters, especially ones so guarded—and tempting. But the sexual tension between them is making them both come undone, and vulnerable to more than desire. All Tao wants is for Riley to stay with him and to trust him with the truth of her past.
As Riley’s mysteries come to light, so does a danger that threatens not only her life but the safety of the entire pack. For Tao, keeping Riley safe means keeping her close—forever—as his mate.
Fierce Obsessions is book #6 in the Phoenix Pack series by Suzanne Wright.
I love this series! I’m kinda smitten with the whole sexy shifter thing anyway but these particular shifters (including the Mercury Pack) are just my favourites! They are all sarcastic and funny as hell. It’s a joy reading about them.
I’m so glad that Tao finally got his story. He’s a little grumpy but you can’t help but love him. He is so protective of his pack mates and takes his position in the pack extremely seriously that he didn’t care too much when raven shifter Riley joined the pack with two kid shifters in tow. He just didn’t trust things. That’s his nature. He also felt like she was hiding something.
Riley, a lone shifter, came to us when Makenna joined the pack (book 5). Riley wasn’t sure about the pack at first because of the obvious trust issues from Tao, but she soon fell very much in love with everyone else and felt safe and at home. Her main concern was for Dexter and Savannah her two children shifters that she took under her wing, no pun intended (a book or two back). Their safety is first and foremost. She knew he didn’t like her but that just made it more fun to have someone to torture with sneaky little tricks and games. She is a raven after all!
I would have liked a little more passion between the two of them. It was still very exciting and romantic, but I missed the bone crushing lust in their exchanges. The sexy love scenes were great, but for some reason I got the feeling from Riley that she wasn’t completely into it. I mean obviously she was, but it was just a little hard to read from her I guess. Having said that though, I must say that she is fierce! She has a wicked strong personality and a great sense of humour. Love her! Love Tao.
The whole gang is back in this book and we get to see some peeps from the Mercury pack too. It’s fantastic! I love seeing everyone in all the books. It keeps you up to date with them and it’s always nice to keep in touch so to speak.
I can’t finish this without saying that I think Dominic has got to be my favourite character. I love them all, but there is a story behind Dominic and his sarcastic antics and down right lack of self preservation and I for one cannot wait to read it! He’s so happy all the time, which makes me think that he really isn’t. Trick is another character that has me wanting to hear more about him. He’s so intuitive but sad or lonely or something. Dunno… I just can’t wait to see what Suzanne has in store for both of them.
As usual with any of Suzanne Wright’s books, in addition to that witty and sarcastic humour of hers she also brings excitement & action and Love & Romance to every book. She rocks!!!
Once again I’m left wanting the next book… like now…. like right friggin’ now!!!
