KARSYN STYLES… aka Syn is tired of waiting on the man she knows is her mate to claim her. She’s going to take matters into her own hands, even if that means teaching the stubborn wolf she’s more than just the alpha’s baby sister.
BODHI… has fought the feelings he has for the little wolf who’s supposed to be like a sister to him. Only the feelings she’s stirred in his body and heart are far from brotherly. He’s done everything in his power to keep her at a distance, even going against everything he and his wolf want, but nothing can tame either man or beast except the one female meant to be theirs.
Just when he is ready to claim his mate, Bodhi’s world is rocked as his past comes back with a vengeance. He wasn’t born a wolf, but turned when his family was slaughtered. He’d thought he was all alone in the human world, grateful for his wolven family, until one fateful encounter.
Syn sees the man she loves pulling away. Her heart can’t take another rejection, or seeing him turn to another female for the comfort only she should be giving him. She’ll do anything to show him they’re meant to be together.
Neither realize the danger lurking in the shadows as Bodhi’s past is more sinister than either realize. Can the Iron Wolves survive what’s coming next, or will what destroyed Bodhi’s past come back to do the same to their future?
In the last couple of books we’ve seen Bodhi on his phone, texting or leaving to take a call. Syn is done, with it now. She knows Bodhi’s her mate, but he hasn’t made a move so she’s going to put some distance between them for a while.
Bodhi’s problem isn’t as simple, he delivered a custom car to LA and found his sister and her child. Her husband, Roberto, is wealthy and abusive. The time has come to get her and the child away, somewhere they will be safe.
The last thing he expects is for Syn to follow him. Now that wasn’t her original plan but she wanted answers before she put the distance between them.
Things get a bit hairy at the house, and Syn ends up needing help, but once they are all away, she decides to go with her initial plan only to be taken by Roberto again.
This is a favorite scene.
The door burst open, the loud bang had her nearly jumping out of her skin. “We’ve got movement on the security feed.” She didn’t recognize the voice of the man talking, and worried Kellen and the others were walking into a trap.
“Mr. Dominguez doesn’t want to be disturbed unless we have something good to tell him. Take two men with you and see what it is. Shoot to kill, not injure.”
Her throat closed up. She couldn’t allow them to kill her family. “Kellen, can you hear me?”
“Karsyn, if you ever drop off the radar again, I swear to all I’ll beat your ass.” Her brother’s voice came across more worried than angry.
“I promise to never do it again. But, there are men coming out of where I’m being held. Are you near?”
“Absofuckinglutely, I’m near,” he growled.
“They have guns and are planning to shoot to kill.”
“Oh, let em bring it. I plan to gut them, and shove their weapons so far up their asses, they’re gonna wish they’d stayed home with their mamas.” His deep growl had her smiling.
Bodhi grunted. “Great imagery, Alpha. I’m now forever gonna have visions of you doing bad bad things with guns.”
Hearing Bodhi’s voice so clear in her mind, made her wish for the mate bond, but she pushed it aside.
“I’m serious. They have guns…with bullets. You guys are bad and all, but bullets hurt.” She touched the spot just below her ribs where one had skimmed her side.
“Oh, don’t think I’ve forgotten about that, chérie. You and I will be having a discussion about that when I get you home safely,” Bodhi said, his tone suggesting he had a lot to say and do.
“Children, big bro here. Don’t need to hear this shit in my head, thank you very fucking much,” Kellen informed them.
“Heads up wolfies, we got company.”
“Oh my gawd, you brought Jennaveve? Are you fucking insane? Her father-in-law-to-be will kill us all. Did you see the way he decimated all those things before? Fuck, get out of here Jenna.” Goddess, she was going to get them all killed.
Jenna snorted through their link. “Really, Karsyn, one would think, that one,” Jenna coughed and it sounded like she said Syn. “That one would be grateful that one such as I, was coming to rescue them. I certainly would be if roles were reversed. I didn’t even balk when they refused to let me ride them like a pony, not in a sexual way mind you. Eww.”
“Stop it. You’re going to make me laugh, and I’m pretending to be unconscious. I’m sorry for my lack of respect. Is that better?” She tried to keep the laughter out of her voice, but even though they were speaking in their minds, it came across as if they were talking face-to-face.
“Can’t talk now, must kill bad guy. Byeee.” Jenna’s words were cut off at the same time Syn heard Bodhi’s wolf growl.
She tried reaching him, but since they weren’t connected except through Kellen, if he cut her off, then she only saw what he allowed. The stark reminder was a knife to her already wounded heart.
Howls could be heard, but she didn’t think it was because they were close, but because someone was listening to video footage. Running feet pounded through the door.
“Shit, we are being attacked by a pack of wild wolves. Get the girl and let’s go. Where’s the boss?”
Syn wasn’t going to let them use her as a pawn. Her wolf had finally woken from the last round of drugs they’d given her. She smelled three different males in the room with her, and calculated her chances of winning in a fight as a human. Yes, she had enhanced strength, but they had guns. In her fur, she had claws, and teeth that could rip them to shreds. Before she could change her mind, she allowed the change to come over her, knowing she only had a precious few seconds of surprise on her side.
Yells of surprise came from all three men, and then she didn’t care what they did or said. Her mind shut down as she leapt at the only one who seemed to have a gun. Her wolf recognized him as one of the men who’d happily injected them with drugs. She didn’t go for his arm, instead they both tore out his throat. As they rolled in a tangle of human arms and wolf paws, she felt a kick to her side, making her release her prey.
Turning, she growled at the two men who stared back at her. Horror written on their faces. Syn could only imagine what they must be thinking, having seen her turn from a human to a wolf. Now, she stood with their friend’s blood dripping from her jaws, and she let out another growl. This one lower, and although she would cringe later, she allowed her wolven tongue to come out and lick at her jaws.
Both men made the sign of the cross, and then one ran for the door as the other pissed himself, the scent damn offensive to her nose. Gah, she so didn’t want to attack the asshat. All she wanted was to leave.
“We are coming for you, don’t you dare do anything stupid,” Bodhi warned.
“I just killed a man, I don’t think I could do much else that would constitute as stupid.” She shuddered at the memory.
Kellen’s growl sounded closer than just in her ear. “Good girl. You do what you need to stay alive. Kill every fucker that comes near you, just stay alive. Understand?”
The man who’d ran out came back in, his back to her as he muttered something in Spanish she didn’t understand. Damn why hadn’t she taken another class or three in school on the language. A big black wolf with flashing green eyes followed by a little woman screaming nonsense, had the man falling over his feet. If Syn was in human form she’d have covered her mouth with her hands to stop from laughing, as it was, she chuffed in her wolven form. Jenna was freaking the man out.
“Ay yay yayay,” Jenna yelled, waving her hands in a circular motion. A glow surrounded her, making it look as though she was lit up like a flame.
Bodhi came to stand in front of Syn, his large wolven body three times as big as hers. He faced the other man, growling. A knife she hadn’t seen clattered to the floor, and damn, the scent of urine hit her again.
“Shit, they can’t hold their bladders at all.” She butted her head into Bodhi’s side when he didn’t seem inclined to move.
Jenna’s war cry continued, making Syn wonder if the woman was a little crazy for real.
A boom shook the ground, and then Jenna was silent. Syn shot around Bodhi to see she was holding the man by the throat a couple feet off the floor. “Stay back, Syn. You, too, Bodhi. This one is depraved along with his boss. They all are, but this one likes little girls.”
Jenna’s eyes became a light silver.
“Someone has unleashed the Kraken,” Kellen strolled in, a smirk on his face.
Bodhi’s body shimmered and then he too was back in human form. Dressed. How the hell did they all get the super power, yet she had shredded jeans around her damn legs, and her favorite leather jacket was in bits on the couch?
“Did you kill all the baddies?” Jenna asked, dropping the lifeless man to the ground.
Kellen looked up to the ceiling. “How is it that you can snuff out the baddies, yet you can’t call them fuckers?”
The Fey Queen shrugged. “I can curse you under the table, I just choose to save my words for the right time.”
Syn stayed in her wolven form, her mouth still had the nasty taste of copper in it. Jenna knelt in front of her. “You’re a good girl, Karsyn Styles.” A wave of her hand, and then a feeling of lightness washed over her.
Seconds later, she shifted, finding herself fully clothed in a pair of jeans and tank with her leather jacket in one piece. “Holy, fuck. How’d you do that?”
Jenna stumbled. “Wow, remind me not to make a wolf shift unless I have to.”
Kellen steadied the Fey. “Woman, why didn’t you just tell her to shift?”
“She was freaking out cause she killed asshat over there. I needed to force her out of her misery and cleanse her pallet. By the way, no way in hell am I ever eating Bambi either. Ewww,” Jenna gagged.
