The Montagues and Capulets have nothing on the Canis and Banes wolf packs. The two have been feuding for ages. The brutal murder of the Banes’ alpha only added fuel to the fire. And now there’s only one way to bring peace—the current alphas of each pack, Marrok and Tala, need a mating of convenience.
Tala has her doubts. A thousand of them.
Never mind that Marrok drives her body to levels of desire her vibrator has trouble keeping up with. If she can’t get her inner wolf—or her people—on board, forget peace, because she'll lose the tenuous control she has over the Canis pack. Her new mate is just so damn alpha. He’d better learn to play nice or Tala will have to show him who’s boss.
But Marrok has plans of his own, and nothing and no one, not even Tala herself, can resist an alpha...
This novella was previously self published as The Worse for Were but has undergone a complete re-edit. Scenes were added, things were changed, but the kissing still remains!
Oh my wow, throwing all the 5 stars at this one! Blew all my expectations away and I absolutely devoured every single word. I’m so happy that I discovered Abigail Owen from Entangled last year. I’ve been obsessed with every book I’ve read by her. And Shift Out of Luck just might be my top favorite of hers.
Where do I even begin with my review? Having two alpha shifters mated to hopefully bring peace between their packs. It’s quite the feat and that’s not even covering the surface of TWO ALPHA mentalities trying to work as one. That’s tough with two very dominating personalities. We got a glimpse of these two in The Demigod Complex and that just added a whole lot of intrigue to their story, so I was beyond ready to read Marrok and Tala’s story.
There’s quite a bit working against these two as they try to get rid of the divide between their packs. Soooo many simply aren’t OK with their union and trying to working against them. Mainly trying to bring Tala down, but my goodness, she is an alpha that can absolutely hold her own. She has earned the role time and time again. I hated that she was constantly challenged, but she showed everyone just how much of a bada** she is!
Marrok surprised me the most because I expected him to be more overbearing and unwilling to treat Tala as an equal. There were definitely times where he had to fight that urge to not constantly put himself ahead of her. But he was more than willing to work to gain her trust, completely, And I really loved that about him. Plus, simply a smirk from him will absolutely do it for me 😉
These two are an explosive match together and I hope we continue to see more of them in this series!
