Her desire becomes his pleasure... Max Westin. Sex incarnate. She could smell it, feel it with his proximity. Everything about him was a little rough, a little gritty. A primitive creature. Just like she was. He held her hand a little too long, his thickly-lashed gaze clearly stating his intentions to have her. To tame her… “Victoria.” Her name, just one word, but spoken with such possession she could almost feel the collar around her neck. “It’s in your nature,” he murmured. “The desire to be taken.” In this game of cat and mouse, everything is an illusion but the passion is as real as it gets…
I enjoyed reading this book. Sylvia has once again reminded me why I love her writing.  It felt however like it was supposed to be a apart of a series, the world that was described, the presence of characters that were felt like they had more of a story to them; all of it is pretty interesting but it's listed as a standalone on her website. (boo Sylvia give us more from this world).

As the story unfolds you learn more about the world, the Council, the characters themselves give wonderful descriptions and share the why of it all.

I absolutely LOVED Victoria, she was one fun, funny and bada** woman, she refused to be tamed and made life hell for the men sent to bring her back in line.  Her constant challenge of the Council's authority makes them send one last hunter to bring her in. She's ready, but she couldn't have been prepared for Max.  Max Westin for all his knowledge wasn't prepared for the full force that Victoria presented, yeah on paper she was wild, but in reality?? She was even more so and he was looking forward to challenge. Victoria made Max crazy , she totally made him work for it, and Max had his hands full trying to tame her.

I was totally in love with their interactions, their witty conversations, the attraction they felt and it was pretty hot when they did interact *smirks*.  It however wasn't until almost the end of the first part that I really started to like Max, I wasn't sure he was a good guy until then and then man oh man, did Max show his real strength at the end.

In the beginning part of the story he was a bit condescending to Victoria and you understood why when their world was explained a little bit more and you totally understand afterwards.  In he end Max was given great challenge and Victoia found someone she could enjoy playing the game with..  What happens in the end when it's no longer a game?? Well You have to read and find out because Boy oh Boy some of it I totally didn't see coming and some made me want to scream at the different characters like NONNOONONONO!!

I really loved it and I hope you do too
Happy Reading and happy Hunting my loves
