Callan Lyons is a genetic experiment. One of six fighting for freedom and the survival of their Pride. Merinus Tyler is the reporter who will tempt him, draw him, until the fury of the "mating frenzy" locks them into a battle of sexual heat there is no escape from. Deception, blood, and the evil Genetics Council are hot on their trail. Callan will use his strength to try and save them both...and do all in his power to keep his woman in the process.
With the launch of this book so begins the Breed Saga. Callan, a man on the run who makes the decision he does only because he doesn't wish his fate on his mate.  The story very much reads like it's been going on for a hile and we're only just peeking in.  We get introduced to a few of the future stories and because I've read ahead a few books I know some of the plot points that are being setup already.  I still felt the need to marathon through the book and the others that came right after.

I loved how Callan was still clueless even though he's been at this for a while.  Some things in this life were still very new to him, so he discovers them while we do.  I loved the Science Fiction aspect and the question of what makes us human.

As the story unfolded and Meri was exposed to just ho wild the Counsel could be it made you hurt for the team.  Reading what was done to them, how the were 'raised' knowing that in normal society monsters prey on the weak, just imagining knowing there are no consequences if you hurt the weak and vulnerable?? it gave them free rein and I had to take mental health breaks because I wanted to rage.

I loved that Meri's family was close knit and strong and that her family would do whatever needed to back and protect her.

This is a great beginning to the story and made me want to read more. Even though this was a strong erotica, the back story being set up and the mystery were still strong.  The building of the wold and the unexpected betrayal are just so well written.

I highly recommend, however please be warned even though it's only briefly mentioned the entire series does discuss abuse to women, men, children and can be at times graphic.
Happy Reading my loves,
