NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author
HE’S FOUND THE ONE…
SWAT officer Landry Cooper is certain Everly Danu is The One. The problem is, she has no idea what Cooper really is. And as much as he wants to trust her, he’s not sure he can share his deepest secret…
When Everly’s family discovers Cooper’s a werewolf, her brothers will do anything to keep them apart-they’ll kill him if they have to. Everly is falling hard for the ridiculously handsome SWAT officer, and she’s not about to let her brothers tell her who she can love… Until Cooper’s secret is exposed and she discovers the man she thought she knew is a monster in disguise.
BUT CAN HE KEEP HER?
As I read these, I truly wonder why I didn’t read them all when I bought them. I am loving the way these Alpha male wolves pretty much get hit over the head with the emotions of finding ‘The One’.
This book opens with a bang as Landry Cooper waits in line at the bank to cash the check Jayden gave him instead of cash on their bet. In front of him is Everly Danu a beautiful woman who instigates a conversation with him as they wait in the line from hell. Even with the instant attraction he feels, he still catches the about to happen bank robbery.
This is a favorite scene after Landry finishes with his report to IA.
“Hey, you’re still here!” a familiar voice said from behind her.
Everly turned around to see Landry walking over to join them, the corners of his sexy lips edging into a smile.
“I thought you’d already left,” he said.
She smiled. “I ran into your teammates, and they let me hang out with them until you got done. I wanted to make sure you really were okay before I left.”
As Landry came to a stop in front of her, she was suddenly reminded how big and muscular he was. He loomed over her by nearly a foot. She almost laughed as she had a vision of climbing up his body to kiss him. Not that she minded. Something told her it would be worth it.
He grinned. “The wound was just a scratch. The paramedics didn’t even bother with it.”
She found that hard to believe considering the amount of blood on his shirt. She opened her mouth to say so, but suddenly, she found herself tongue-tied as a delicious scent filled her nose. At first, she thought he was wearing a nice cologne. But she immediately dismissed that idea. She had four brothers she’d bought a lot of cologne for over the years, and Landry didn’t smell like any of those. No, this scent was all his, and it was more intoxicating than any cologne, that was for sure. She didn’t realize how good until she leaned in closer to get a whiff. If she could figure out how to put it in a bottle and sell it, she’d be rich.
Landry lifted a brow. He was probably wondering why she was standing there breathing him in like some kind of weirdo.
“Um,” she managed, trying to gather her thoughts. What had she been going to say? For the life of her, she couldn’t remember. So she said the first thing that came to mind.
“You never told me where you were taking me for dinner. I wanted to know should wear for our date.”
Landry gazed down at her for a long moment, a slight smile at his lips, as if he knew how off kilter he had her—and that he enjoyed the fact.
“To tell the truth, I hadn’t really picked a place yet,” he said. “I thought I’d ask if you had a favorite restaurant, or a favorite food, then go from there.”
She wasn’t fooled for a second. Landry knew she was seriously attracted to him, but she appreciated the fact that he didn’t let the knowledge go to his head. A lot of other men would have assumed that she’d go wherever they wanted. It was nice to know Landry was ready to make their date all about her. Still, she had to wonder how far he would be willing to go with that.
“You sure you’re okay with me picking the restaurant?” she asked. “You strike me as the basic meat-and-potato type. Aren’t you worried I’ll pick some kind of girlie place with fondue pots and bean sprouts?”
He chuckled, a rich, warm sound that rumbled from his big, broad chest. “Are you saying you’re the fondue and bean sprout kind of girl?”
She gave him a coy smile. What was it about him that made her want to flirt so outrageously? “Maybe.”
Landry stepped closer, and for a split second she thought he was going to kiss her right here in the middle of a crime scene with all his SWAT teammates standing around them. She went up on her tiptoes, more than ready, but he stopped just short, leaving her hanging.
“Then it’s settled,” he said. “I think there’s a Melting Pot over on Five Point in Arlington. Would that work?”
She laughed softly and dropped back down off her toes. She might as well stop testing him. It was clear he’d take her anywhere she wanted to go. “I’m sure it’s a nice place, but I was just kidding about that stuff. I don’t like fondue or bean sprouts. But if you know a place that serves authentic French food, that would be perfect.”
“French, huh?” He considered that. “I think I have the perfect restaurant in mind. Tomorrow night good for you?”
“Perfect,” she said, although she didn’t know how she could ever wait that long. “I’m looking forward to it.”
“Me too.” He leaned in again, putting his mouth close to her. “Especially since you did promise me it’d be the best date of my life.”

Everly is stunned as all this goes down and waits with Landry’s teammates for him to finish up. Landry had quite a bit of explaining to do and ends up on leave with therapy involved. This gives him a lot of time to spend with Everly and these two are explosive.
Things go really well for them until he meets her family, at first all friendly and then everything blows up.
I find myself very curious about the therapist, while she doesn’t admit to knowing what he is, I have a feeling she knows.
Fast paced, family drama lots of new information on werewolves and plenty of sizzling heat.
I can’t wait to see who finds his ‘One’ next.
