Violet Maxwell wants no part of Lincoln Thorne, the alpha wolf shifter who broke her heart when she was a teenager. Nevertheless, when they are forced by arcane Supernatural Laws to find a mate, Violet and Lincoln agree to fake-date their way to a fake-mating to buy some time. 

It's their fault. They both realize there's nothing fake about their feelings when old feelings reappear-along with Violet's magic. The couple's happily ever after is threatened by old secrets and looming threats once again. It's a fact: magic doesn't make dating and love easier.


If I told you that I dislike this book I would be lying. Don't get me wrong I would have liked more graphic love scenes. But that's more my taste when it comes to romance novels. It doesn't lessen the book in any way shape or form. What we do get from the love scenes is pretty good and they don't overpower the story.

Unlike some paranormal romances with a lot of action and adventure with love and romance in the mix, this book does not go in that direction. Yes, it has an antagonist and a protagonist like any other book. The difference is that you get a contemporary Love Story instead of being action-adventure. This is refreshing coming from Paranormal romances that always have this dire need to accomplish a particular goal. This is more about their love story and not about an epic adventure they have to go on to save the world or one of them is the chosen one. Even though most of the characters in this book are mythical creatures of some sort they're easily relatable. You don't even notice or realize that they are not human. For some, it may be a downside to the story but I found it to be a definite plus.

Both the heroine and the hero of this story are relatable and lovable. The relationship is very enticing yet normal you can really root for them throughout the whole entire book. The heroin has this incredibly smart and Sassy grandmother that I love. She is like the grandmother you wish you would have had. The heroine's sisters are well fleshed out. Even though they are triplets they have very separate personalities which I like. You don't confuse one for the other at any point. But you still see this lovable sisterly bond between them.

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars. I'm giving this book a five out of five because I really enjoyed it. It was nice and easy to read. I didn't have to commit to a series of long arduous storylines that were complicated. It was simple and fun. If the author gets around to writing the next book I will definitely be purchasing it.

Overall this is an awesome book if you are not looking for anything with heavy fantasy but yet still want a little bit of magic. It's a quick read that will definitely satisfy the romance lover inside of you.
