Sometimes fate gets it all wrong.
Zoey Kent has lived with that fact ever since she turned eighteen and learned that the man she loved could never be hers. He’s a born shifter, a wolf, and she’s a mere human. Fate doesn’t care if on paper they’re a perfect pair. She isn’t his fated mate and she’s resigned herself to the knowledge that someday, she’ll have to watch Michael mate with another. It’s never crossed her mind that there might be someone else out there for her, that she would be the one to mate another, to choose another over everything she’s ever known or wanted.
Sometimes fate gets it all right.
Rafe Hudson left his pack behind years ago. Physically and mentally scarred from an attack that left his parents and twin dead, he walked away from his responsibilities as Alpha. He never intended to return but lone wolf or not, he can’t leave Michael open to an attack he’s learned is coming for his only brother. What he didn’t know was that going home would mean scenting his mate, the one person in the world that could make him whole again, that could give him everything he thought he’d lost. His pack, his home and his family.
But fate always has a plan.
There’s no way Michael’s brother is her future, is there? Just like there’s no way that the girl his brother has loved since they were kids, was always meant to be his, right?
Only fate knows why they were brought together but there is one thing for sure, the sparks between Zoey and Rafe are undeniable. The bond between them is unbreakable. And together… they’ll change the face of the pack forever.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When I finished this book I was so full of melancholy. The book hangover I’m experiencing is killing me and it has been less than 24 hours since I finished reading. To make my melancholy even greater, I dreamt about these sexy, possessive wolf shifters. At least I had an adventure of my own. 😉
So you must be wondering why I’m telling you this. I just wanted you to understand how this book effected me. I loved it so much. I want more! That said I will do my best to articulate my thoughts here. Not going to be easy.
Jess Bryant hasn’t written anything I didn’t love. So when I saw she was taking a turn into the paranormal/shifters world, there was no doubt I wasn’t diving in. I love shifter romance.
Unbreakable Bond is one of the best shifter romances I’ve ever read. And I have read a lot.
This book is part of a duet and does end in a cliffhanger. However, the main H/h of this book, Rafe and Zoey have their HEA. The duet will continue as the plot continues and Rafe’s brother Michael will find his own HEA.
Without giving too much away…….Rafe returns to his home and pack after years of self-exile. He has one reason for returning but things gets even more complicated when he discovers his mate. I loved how possessive he was. And let me tell you that Rafe exudes possessiveness. Oh Lord! He was so gruff and sexy. Totally alpha. Nothing was going to stand in his way of claiming his mate. Even if he had to fight his own brother. While I definitely describe Rafe as protective, possessive, dominant and sexy, he has this adorableness about him. You’d have to read this book to see what I mean.
Zoey was so sweet and innocent through the first pages. My heart broke for her sadness. She always thought she would end up with Michael. But he wasn’t her fated mate so that was not possible. She was lost and lonely. But when Rafe comes back, Zoey has a whole new attitude. Her persona does a 180. While Rafe is possessive of her, Zoey discovers how much she needs and wants Rafe. Yes, this is instant attraction but if you read shifter romances, then you know this is their way.
Zoey and Rafe had some obstacles to get over. There is angst, some suspense and despite the intensity on the pages, I couldn’t help but smile often. This book is very entertaining. As I mentioned earlier, this duet continues with Michael. There is a continuing threat to their pack, their lives. And most importantly, Michael will find his mate. I don’t want to give anything away but I can tell you the epilogue will give you more than just a hint at whats’s to come.
I loved this book so much! I absolutely recommend it as a must read.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
