Blurb:

Shane never prepared to do what no other Leopard shifter had done before and that was fall in love. Try telling that to his heart because from the first touch of a certain Panther named Trevor, there was no turning back for Shane. Then just as Shane found his mate and true happiness, Trevor is brutally torn from him when a Cobra shifter, bent on revenge, captures the Panther. Now Shane finds himself helpless as he scrambles to find his lover before the Cobra enacts his final act of vengeance and kills Trevor.

Ever since his captivity, Trevor has known pain. He’s known degradation. He’s known terror. However, he also knows that Shane will be coming for him. And gods help the Cobra when Shane finally does arrive because hell hath no equal to a Leopard’s fury. Trevor only hopes that Shane finds him in time, or else all hope will be lost.

Review:

I eagerly anticipated the conclusion of Shane and Trevor’s story after the cliffhanger Ms. Hecht last delivered, and I’m sorry to say she didn’t deliver with this. Sure the funny pop-culture references were present, familiar faces too, some snarky dialog even. What wasn’t there was Shane and Trevor’s story. This read like a set-up, an introduction of new characters and foreplay for a new couple’s story.

Despite where the last installment left off, we don’t see Trevor till chapter two. Shane’s there, but he’s on the periphery in the first chapter. Trevor’s fighting to stay alive long enough for Shane to find him, but their enemy wants to bring Shane to his knees. The way he goes about doing that could seriously wreck the relationship between Shane and Trevor.

When Ms. Hecht allowed us into Trevor or Shane’s head, I got the urgency and the need for both men to find each other. I experienced the fear as Trevor fought against betraying his mate. And Shane’s despair was palpable. Those emotions were great. I loved and wanted more of them, but just as I got into it I’d be yanked into someone else’s head. Someone who wasn’t Shane or Trevor. That kept me slightly detached from the story and in the end disappointed me.
