Ally Marshall isn’t just a wolf shifter — she’s a Seer.
But a girl doesn’t exactly need special powers to know that Derren Hudson despises her entire kind. Disdain practically rolls off the Beta of the Mercury Pack . . . disdain mixed with a healthy dose of desire. And no matter how much the ruggedly handsome male appeals to her, this is one call of the wild she’s determined to ignore.
After one betrayal too many, Derren doesn’t have much use for Seers — except for Ally.
Forced into acting as her protector, he finds himself intensely and passionately drawn to the woman who incites his primal instinct to claim.
And when enemies target the pack, Ally’s gift may be just what the Mercury Pack needs.
Can he put his distrust aside, or will he force himself to turn his back on the one woman who makes his inner beast howl?
His hunger for her wasn’t soft or tame or romantic. It was vicious, sharp edged, and biting. It was raw desperation that had teeth and claws, and it had him in a tight grip.
Spiral of Need is the spin off series from Suzanne Wright’s Phoenix Pack series. And while it’s book 1 in this new series, I’d highly recommend starting with Phoenix Pack first because there’s a lot of interconnecting characters and readers coming into this without having read the other series first may find themselves lost. Although there is plenty of background given on the story, reading Phoenix Pack first will simply give a much needed background on certain situations in the story and the characters that take place here.
I’ve been a huge fan of this author since I first read Feral Sins, and while none of the other books have lived up to the greatness of the first, I still find myself gravitating towards them when I’m craving a fun and super sexy PNR book.
Ally Marshall is a wolf shifter and a seer. Her kind isn’t exactly revered in the shifter community, but her current predicament with her pack has less to do with that and more to do with a psychotic mate of her ex boyfriend. Calling in a favor, Ally finds herself under the protection of the Mercury Pack, where she seems to be even less welcome for her seer abilities, though without a psycho female determined to drive her crazy at every corner.
Derren Hudson despises her kind, and with good reason too. A seer once cost him everything. But a favor to a friend finds him protecting her while realizing that the burning lust he feels whenever he’s near her won’t go ignored for long.
Spiral of Need is nothing new that I haven’t read from this author before, but no less entertaining. You have yourself a sassy, kick-ass heroine and a domineering male. A whole lot of fun banter and all the favorites from the previous books making an appearance.
She likes to see me in pain. She’s a sadist.”
“My daughter is NOT a sadist.” Shay took her daughter with a playful huff.
“She shoved a breadstick up Greta’s nose.”
“Because she senses evil.”
Darren blinked. “I can’t argue with that.”
The one thing that did intrigue me quite a bit here was the introduction of a few secondary characters that I’m really hoping will be getting their own book soon. ESPECIALLY one particular sociopath. What can I say? I love me the crazy ones.
Full of action, snarky banter, and sizzling steam, Spiral of Need definitely hit the spot and I can’t wait for more in this series.
