Werewolves in Tyrus Chamberlain’s pack are disappearing. Not having any luck in finding out what’s happening to them on his own, he turns to a security company for help. When Mac Payne arrives, Ty’s shocked that it’s “Mackenzie” instead. He’s hit by instant lust for her, something that hasn’t happened to him since his wife died.

Mackenzie lost her husband three years ago and has no interest in another relationship. Yet the call of the wolf inside her knows Ty is meant for her. She can resist him for only so long until her wolf has to be satisfied. Their passion is explosive, their lovemaking everything they fantasized it could be.

But a killer is still on the loose, threatening more wolves and Mackenzie. Ty will risk everything, even his own life, to protect the members of his pack and the woman he loves.

This book is a page turner for sure ! I definitely enjoyed every minute of it, and even better was realizing that it’s part of a series.

Taste Of Bliss is the second book in the Moon’s Magic Series. I missed the first book but this one worked fine as a stand alone story all by itself. It had everything needed to keep this reader happy.

The plot had a great set-up with a bit of mystery involving the missing pack members. Alpha Ty Chamberlain has a big problem. His pack members are disappearing at an allarming rate. He reaches out to an old friend (I am assuming that Jay and Roni are from the first book) who puts him in touch with a security expert. It is to Ty’s surprise that Mac Payne turns out to be a very attractive female wolf. She also happens to be his mate.

There was so much that I liked about this book. First of all, Ty and Mac have that instant chemistry that seems to be a mainstay for shifter romances, but it’s a bit different for them. They had so much in common but they fought it because they’ve both loved and lost their mates in the past. So they have some conflicted feelings and guilt about moving on with someone else. There was lots of angsty drama and loads of sexual tension for these two. Then there was the mystery part. It had a surprise twist at the end that came out of nowhere. To tell you the truth, I never saw it coming. It was very well done by this sneaky author.

Now while I enjoyed all of the events that took place, It was all of the fascinating characters that really captured my interest. Ty was an utterly swoon worthy alpha. Irritating ? Why Yes, he was that. Jealous and possessive ? You know it. Sinfully delicious ? Absolutely ! Mac was strong. She was excatly the kind of heroine I like to read about. I liked how she took charge in a certain situation. It was exciting to see the heroine do that for a change. There was an intriguing cast of secondary characters that I assume will be getting stories of their own. At least I hope so, since I was especially taken with Shade.

I would say that this book was very well written. It had a strong, interesting plot that flowed at a fast pace. It captured and held my interest right up until it ended with a stunning climax. What more could I wish for ? A longer book maybe, since I hated to see it end.

All in all, this was a good read. I enjoyed it and look forward to the next book in the series.
