Jake by Kym Grosso

Published: May 30, 2017

I’m caught up with the Immortals of New Orleans series. Well, caught up to the most current novel. I own Quintus but haven’t gotten the chance to read it (story of my life honestly). But this one was really good. Especially when you consider that I thought Jake was going to challenge Logan for the Acadian wolves. His Alpha tendencies had come out strong in the last book and he had no where to direct it. Also, this one took a couple of unexpected turns especially when you think that we learned more about Quintus in this book than we did in the previous one. It was definitely one that I had a short affair with because I loved it so much.

Jake doesn’t know his place in the pack anymore. His wolf is urging him to challenge Logan for the position of Alpha and the last thing he wants to do is fight is friend to the death. Then he meets a mysterious stranger at his cabin in the bayou of all places. When she starts to glow he has no clue what to do. He is in awe of her but he doesn’t know who she is or why she came to him. When she shows up again with Quintus of all the vampires in the world he knows that something is up. What he doesn’t know is what type of creature she is. He does know that his wolf knows her and wants to make her his but that’s not possible. Right?

Kai has been in hiding her entire life but when her sister goes missing she has to get her back. So she goes to the demon mistress of San Francisco who of course only wants her for her special blood. As the only one of her kind she knows that she is highly desirable to supernaturals but she needs to find her sister. In order to do that she needs the help of the Alpha in California. She knew she had to get to him and in that vein she materialized to his place where she attacked him. That wasn’t a great start. She doesn’t know why she is so attracted to him either. But he is the key to her sister’s return and she will do anything to get her back.

I really enjoyed this novel. Again, I listened to the audio book and found it very well done. I also enjoyed learning more about Quintus since he is the hero in the next novel. But this novel wasn’t all fun and games. There were a couple of dark scenes that made me both wary and queasy so there was that. But when writing about the happenings of New Orleans sometimes the darkness seeps out. The novel was fast paced and kept me interested throughout the whole thing. I can’t wait to see what Kym has cooked up in the next one. It’s sure to be awesome.
