Hope believed Wolfe was dead, but he was only waiting for the right time to claim her. The scientist who created him, Hope's mother, has forced his hand. She wants her creation back, and she wants any children he may breed on her daughter. He is a man whose DNA was altered, infused with the genetic code of the wolf. His unique genetic makeup has created a male unlike any other and will make itself known in the most surprising ways. Now Hope must convince her mate she hasn't betrayed him, and they must defeat the plans of a scientist gone mad.

I re-read this to see if I remembered right. And I did remember right, this was terrible. It's the worst book I've read so far in the series.  This as clearly written before she changed the chronological order of the obooks, but my god this is bad; also clearly written before the books became more mainstream after being picked up by Berkley.

Wolfe kidnaps Hope who is his mate, she also happens to be the daughter of the main scientist in his creation lab. A sadist if there ever was one, Hope's mother took pleasure in tormenting the wolves in the lab and Wolfe in particular, especially after she realized that her daughter was Wolfe's weakness.

You would think that a man who was tortured by this woman would take nothing she says as gospel. And yet he does and he allows it to color the way in which he interacts with and treats his mate.  I hated this book because the entire time he's not just a dick to his mate, he assaults her.  After he drugged and kidnapped her, she awakens to find that her clothes have been shifted and he's clearly touched her based on her body's responses, responses she knows can only happen if he touches her intimately.  Then he admits to touching her and inspecting her while she was knocked out to verify what her mother stated. Sooooo you digitally raped her and touched her without consent because Mommy dearest made a comment you didn't like?? OK F*ck off.

Poorly written as an erotica, and it's rape dressed up as mating heat.  He uses the excuse that he needs to know what her mother's plans are as a reason to strip her naked and use her body's responses against her, despite her stating that it would be rape he doesn't back off.  He states he's going to torture her with sex to get her to talk.

Knowing she was his mate even before the rescues on the lab, he left her to be tortured by her own mother, and I'm supposed to believe he did it because she was only 17 and he was trying to protect her??  No she's 24 and he's ok with coming back into her life because he can catch her mother at the same time??  How do you claim to love someone and insult their honor and integrity at the same time.  Then fondle them without their consent as a 'punishment' for perceived slights??

NOPE. I don't like this and I'm not going to pretend this as ok in anyway shape or form. NOPE!!
Happy Reading my loves,
