Where To Find It
Genre: Erotic Romance // Thriller // Suspense
Series: Yes this is the third book in The Kategan Alpha series. However, all books in this series can be read independently. If you would like to read my reviews on the first book in this series, The Mating Cycle, you can click here, and if you would like to read my review of the second book, Dark Awakening, you can here.
The sight of her happily mated brothers has Vera biting her nails in frustration. When the opportunity arises for her to get away from it all she takes it—with one catch—Jackson Marsh. Jackson Marsh has been a pain in her butt from the moment she laid eyes on him. And now to repair his broken trust with her brother Rome, Jackson has agreed to protect Vera as she goes into enemy territory to negotiate with the vampires.
However the change of scenery doesn’t do anything to help Vera’s mood for there was one thing she didn’t think about when she came up with her brilliant plan—seeing her ex vampire lover. Now with her ex vying for her affections again and Jackson sending her body and heart through a loop, Vera must decide what to do with her heart, which has never fully healed itself from the past. In the midst of all the chaos, a vampire clan is threatening to take Kategan land. Together Vera and Jackson must fight to save Kategan land while trying to save each other from falling in love.
It’s really rare for me to find a series that I can continue this far with, and I’m glad to say that this is one of them. After reading Dark Awakening I had thought I had found my new favorite book, but I’m wrong again. This is totally my new favorite, for now at least.
Wicked Desires really stole my heart and made me realize why I love T.A. Grey’s writing. Grey never fails to create relatable characters that feel so real even when they aren’t.
In The Mating Cycle I first met Vera. She was the spunky, outspoken, sister of Vane, and I really didn’t care for her too much to be honest. However, my opinion of her has now changed completely. Upon reading you really get to know her. She’s controlling and guarded, but that’s only because that she had been hurt.
When I found out that Vera’s love interest was Jackson Marsh I have to say I was a little surprised. I mean there weren’t any other original characters to choose from, but I was still surprised. In a good way though. Jackson is different being that he is human and not a werewolf, however he and Vera share common issues. Which is why I think that they are perfect for each other.
Another thing I really liked was the newly introduced supernatural creatures. There are vampires now! Not to mention the fact that Vera’s previous lover was a vampire. I love the integration of new types of characters.
All in all I can say Im very happy with this book. I feel like with each book they get more and more immersive. Yeah there were a few typos, but I think those are going to be fixed across all books. T.A. Grey seems to have been revamping all of her books lately. I definitely plan on continuing this series, because I’m emotionally invested in it at this point. I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.
