Book 2 in the Wolf Breeds series Book 11 in the Breeds series They are a new breed, a new race. Engineered rather than born, trained rather than raised, and their unique genetics have created more than one surprise... Jacob left Faith six years before, unaware that the mark he left on her also left her in an agony of sexual heat that never dimmed. Now Jacob and Faith are together again, but surprises lurk around every corner and dangers as dark and deadly as their very creation surround them in more ways than one.
I really liked this one as well, even though there were a few moments in the book that made me side eye the characters and the book itself.

This one deals with Faith who is an enforcer, years before when in the labs she was made the mate of Jacob in a bid by the scientist to get the Breeds to actually be able to become pregnant.  Faith is the sister of the pack leader in the labs & he knew his sister loved Jacob and they did their best to protect her.  On the night they are rescued the couple were forced to mate for the scientist and then they were separated.  Jacob carries the scars from that night fearing he had hurt the woman he had begun to love he's made himself scarce.  Faith became an Enforcer after her mate abandoned her, she had been young and left with nothing to hang on she pushed herself to become more.  Feeding the need in ways that are actually destructive she's not willing to give up her power.

This story had several moments that made me look at the Jacob character askance.  In several moments he pushes Faith even when she's clearly stated her opionion he goes beyond the line she's dran, whetehr's it's getting rid of her coffee and sex toys, to destroying clothes he doesn't which her to wear.

Faith is at times severely immature and childish in her behavior towards Jacob.  The two butt heads often on how to accomplish the mission and Faith at times risked the mission in an attempt to prove she as capable.  Like hmm really because that's stupid as hell to do just to prove you're as good as you say.  We find new characters in this one, which we will see later int he series again.  The new lab showcases creatures the pack is shocked to discover.  The mystery unfolds quickly and this book showcases several of the strings that get pulled later on and become full stories.  I loved seeing some of the other characters who become their own later.

It takes a while for Faith and Jacob to stop circling each other. They struggle with their past in the labs and their feelings about that first night.  Faith's memory of it is is different from Jacob's and they have to work at coming to a concession on their beliefs and understanding.  They work out their feelings after some serious moments, and I loved how they battled their conversations and non intimate scenes at times making me lol.

Another good addition, but as I said, the casual way in which rape is used as a way to threaten the female character into behaving wasn't ok with me.  In this one you can begin to see the story moving from just an erotica with lots of sex to having more to do with the background story of the Council and the labs & the different kinds of Breeds being created.  Even though chronological this is the 11th book, it appears this one was written before the Berkely books.
Happy Reading my loves,
