Jasper Jamenson’s only responsibility to being the Beta of the Redwood Pack, second son of the Alpha, is to protect the Pack from themselves and the human world. After a century of selfless service, his brother’s new found mating forced him into taking a good look into his life. He isn’t sure he wants a mate, but fate may have other ideas.
Willow Delton is a skinny, bakery owner – the type most woman love to hate. Being without family, she finds herself alone to the Greek god with green eyes who saunters into her bakery every morning. Her desire to follow him, to be with him, overrides every rational sense she possessed.
Jasper and Willow are drawn together, despite every nuisance that works against them. But evil beyond even Jasper’s supernatural compensation will make war against him, by going after the only thing in his eternal life he desires – Willow. Is Willow’s heart enough to overcome Jasper’s soul to save her life? A fight he cannot win, but to save her life – he must.

After reading, and falling in love with, book 1, An Alpha’s Mate (click hereto see my review), I knew I MUST read book 2.And I am SO happy that I did! This series, this author, these characters ALL pull me instantly to the heart of the wolf’s den and make me a part of their lives, if just for the length of the novels.
This story picks up where An Alpha’s Mate leaves off. Though this one if full length where as An Alpha’s Mate was not, this story is still incredibly written like book 1. This is Willow and Jasper’s story. Both characters are deep and complex, yet vibrant and refreshing. I loved their story and the connection that they instantly had for each was awesome.
Jasper Jamenson is the second son of the Redwood Pack’s Alpha leader and has been going into Willow’s bakery for more than a month, and each day, just by seeing her and being near her, he falls for her a little more. He knows she’s his mate, but he’s nervous about telling her that. Getting up the nerve to finally ask her out, he’s completely unaware of the danger that is surrounding his Willow.
Willow Denton is an orphan, who has finally gotten her dream of owning her own bakery. She loves her customers, especially the sexy, gorgeous mystery man who comes to her shop every day to order the same thing. She fantasizes about him when he’s not there, so she’s super excited when he asks her on a date. But, when he leaves, she, too is unaware of the danger that’s around her…..that is, until she’s kidnapped by the enemy pack.
The hunt for Willow ensues, and Jasper is forced to make her his mate. But, Willow is unsure if he really wanted to make her his mate or if it was because he wanted to protect her and the enemy pack forced him. Determined to prove herself worthy of Jasper and win his love, she’s in for a treat when she learns the real reason behind Jasper’s mating.
This story is full of fun, desperation, hot,passionate, steamy love scenes and one whopper of an ending! Once again, the lives of werewolves have stolen my heart, as Carrie Ann Ryan created another beyond 5 Book worthy novel. She combines all the passion, all the bonds, and the meaning of friendship and family into one incredible book. Bringing back all the characters from book 1, and adding in a few new ones, Ms. Ryan keeps the reader on the edge of their seat with the twists and turns, and keeps them ohhing and ahhing with the amazing, instant chemistry between Jasper and Willow. This is by far, my absolute FAVORITE series, and I can’t wait until April when book 3, Trinity Bound, Reed’s story releases.
