Olivia Esmerelda Vasques has always been in control—in the boardroom, in the bedroom, and in her life. But when her partner/ex-husband insists she needs a vacation, Olivia is reluctant to give in until the board of directors issues an ultimatum: take a vacation or don’t bother coming back.
So hiking Mt. McKinley it is. Not her idea of fun, especially after she stumbles into something she can’t quite explain and doesn’t really understand. All she knows is that the sexy warrior she meets has promised to keep her safe. The problem is, she doesn’t know if she can survive him.
Bödvar (Blue) Varangian never expected to have his ass handed to him by the saucy firecracker that barrels into him in the woods. Scared out of her mind, and just a bit moody, she’s now his responsibility. However, she doesn’t take kindly to him telling her what to do, even though she’s been thrust into a world of shifters and vampires and is obviously in way over her head. He knows her type, yet he can’t help wanting to tame her. But his cravings run dark; something he suspects will have her running faster and farther than the threat she currently faces.
Can two people from two different worlds find a way to navigate their journey of friendship, love, and their darkest desires?
Dire Cravings— the second book of Arctic Wolves—will bring your irrational side ‘rational’. Every chapter is filled with excitement that you’ll definitely crave for more.
Olivia—is just another human that is at the wrong place, at a wrong time—apparently, that’s what I believe until I read the latter part. And Blue was—well, your knight in shining armor—or could just I say your ‘tall, dark and handsome’ prince charming? Ruggedly handsome as I imagine him. Olivia was your typical 21st-century lady who likes to control and lead things, and Blue, being old as he was, well, he’s dominant type, too.
Dire Cravings is the second book of the Arctic Wolves series, and yes, you might get confused at first, but mind you, the author was able to deliver the lines clearly that even if you don’t read the first book, you will understand the story. But hey, what’s the fun part in that? I bet the first book is as good as the second book, and you don’t want to miss it.
The story is well written, the shifting of lines was perfectly coordinated that you will not get lost in the story. Every part was vividly described that you can feel what the characters felt, first hand. Even the timing was perfectly balanced; The bed scenes are not much, the scenes depicting Olivia’s ‘life’, Blue’s past, even Luna and Victor’s role was explained very well. The author deserves a round-of-applause for creating this book. It is definitely must, read.
I should remind the readers that this book is strongly advised to be read by readers ages 18 and above.
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Dire Cravings receive a rating of Four heavenly–book goodness! Okay, I know, I’ve got some explaining to do. The book deserves to be read, it just so happens that the reason why Olivia was in the camp was that her ex-forced her and the others to take a vacation—I don’t know, I don’t find it convincing enough. But still, it was just a little loophole that everyone can ignore—the whole story was pretty good. The way how the story was written is beyond perfect. Even the humor in the story was balanced very well.
Let me end this with my favorite quote from the book:
