My Thoughts: I was so excited to be given the oopportunityto read this book. After reading the first in the series I am completely in love with the LeBeau series. V.A. Dold did not disappoint with the second installment in the series. 

In the first book, Cade, we get a little taste of Simon's trauma. We all know being a solider in the middle east is difficult and it is even more so for Simon. Getting details about his experiences really makes you connect to his character. The things Simon has been through really allow him to be patient with Rose and to connect and understand her.

I love that Rose has built in support in Anna as she navigates the shifter world. I can't imagine Anna being strong enough to attempt a relationship with Simon with out Anna's influence. Support is the pivotal to both Rose and Simon's growth during this read. 

I can tell that the events and suspense in this book are leading up to something bigger in the coming installments of this series. I know the next book is not about Rose but I want her and Simon to have babies. wink, wink. 

Author Bio:

V.A.Dold is the bestselling author of the Le Beau Brothers series, New Orleans wolf shifter novels. A graduate of Saint Cloud University, she majored in marketing. Prior to becoming a full time writer, she was a publicist to the authors, owning Innovative Online Book Tours and ARC Author & Reader Con's (ARC NOLA) (ARC Phoenix). Still is. The companies mesh so well together, much like PB&J.

Her idea of absolute heaven is a day in the French Quarter filled with nothing but her computer, her coffee mug and the Brothers, of course.

Her earliest reading memories are from grade school. She had a major fixation with horses, and the Black Stallion was a favorite. Then junior high came along and teenage hormones kicked in. It became all about the Harlequin Romances. She has been hooked on romances ever since.
