When werewolf Eli Drake is banished from his pack, he leaves a devastated and heartbroken Carla Reyes behind. Three torturous years later, she tracks him down to a hole-in-the-wall Texas bar—the pack is in trouble and war is on the horizon. Carla needs Eli’s help, but wants nothing more to do with him—even though he’s as ruthless, domineering and sexy as ever….
Eli hasn’t forgotten Carla. And the partial bite he gave her their last night together has had him lying awake nights imagining her sumptuous curves and supple lips. But Carla wants their bond broken, no matter the cost. Now, as they join forces, dare Eli hope that he can claim a future he never dreamed possible?
I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.
DARK WOLF RETURNING is a fun, fast sexy read. The sexual tension between Eli and Carla is hot. Three years ago Eli was banished from the pack for killing one of his sister’s rapist. Also he left before he could finish the lifemate bond, and Eli and Carla fill the need to complete it, but that will have to wait until they defeat the Whiteclaw pack, who are attacking the pack. Carla is mad that Eli left her and did not give her the choice of going with him. Now she just wants his help for the pack and then she will get rid of this partial bond and Eli forever. Eli has other ideas, he want to complete the bond and have her by his side forever. They both will have to deal with the past and their broken heart to the happiness they both deserve. This book had well-developed characters and story line that pulls you in and won’t let go until you are finished. I give DARK WOLF RETURNING 5/5 stars. I am now going to have to go back and read the other books in this series, and I cannot wait until the next in the series Dark Wolf Running (Bloodrunners Book 5) , AND Blood Wolf Dawning.
