What’s the worst thing that can happen to a werewolf? Unable to shift for three months, Mateo Cruz knows all too well. His wolf has taken up residence in his head, taunting him night and day with vividly violent and carnal thoughts. Convinced he’s cursed, he needs the help of a powerful witch before he literally goes insane.
Evie Savoie has always obeyed the house rules of her coven–no werewolves. They’re known for being moody and volatile. So, when a distempered, dangerous werewolf strolls into the bar and almost strangles one of her late-night customers, she’s ready to bounce him through the door. But the desperation in his eyes when he begs her to help him softens her heart and convinces her to bend the rules.
What Evie doesn’t know is that Mateo’s wolf has a mind of his own. And now that she’s in his sights, he wants only one thing. Her.
It has been absolute insta-love with every single book from the Stay a Spell series! Reading Violet’s and Nico’s story was fun, a bit frustrating because STUBBORN … and a little bit angsty, which I love. If you loved Devraj from Don’t Hex and Drive, just wait until you meet Nico 🙂
Their story is straight fire from beginning to end. When they have a memorable and passionate moment together that’s forever etched on their minds only to be quickly friendzoned because of Violet’s seer status. And then onto being business partners it was for the both of them.
I keep saying this time and time again, Juliette writes shifters and mates so well. And there’s no doubt that Violet and Nico are meant to be together. But with the Violet’s gift and thing’s that are to come, she reigns her feelings in to prevent any heartbreak.
And yes, the frustration began! I loved that Nico would do whatever it takes to make Violet his, even waiting things out. But just the little things he does here and there will definitely make you swoon over him. His wolf was literally always right there wanting to claim what was there, but my goodness his patience. I have to give him major points for that. Even though dominance is in his nature as a wolf, I loved his soft and sweet side especially towards Violet.
It was only a matter of time!
Juliette blends the perfect amount of paranormal and contemporary romance. I enjoy the fact that the romance between Vi and Nico is the main focus. But you still get some paranormal factors with learning a little about the way of the wolves and just how Nico is on a day to day basis. AND more of not only what the Savoie sisters are capable of, but exploring each one of them and their specific gift.
I read this in one sitting and I can’t wait for what’s to come especially when we get glimpses here and there of the other sisters. There’s always something to look forward to.
All the recommendations for this one especially if you’re looking for something that’s not too heavy on the paranormal!
