When two hearts speak as one, no words are needed.

Chloe Williams has waited four long years for her mate to acknowledge her. Time and again he has turned her away for being too young, even when she was hospitalized, recovering from a beating that left lingering after effects. Now that he’s been turned into a Wolf, his mating instincts are kicking in big time. Chloe has to decide if it’s worth risking her heart yet again.

Ten years older than Chloe and dealing with issues she knows nothing about, veterinarian James Woods is about ready to howl in frustration. He’s been drawn to Chloe since she was a radiant nineteen-year-old college student, but the age difference held him back from making a move on her. Now his Wolf wants what’s his, and Jim is finally in a place where he can claim her.

Between meddling mothers, Hunter brothers, and a mystery that threatens to end Chloe’s life, they might find an opportunity to tell each other just how they feel. Or find themselves separated by more than just misunderstood words.

Chloe Williams is a changed fox after an attack four years ago, and the whole time she’s been pining for her mate, who at the time was human. Now, he’s a wolf and he can’t deny his pull to mate with the younger Chloe.

James Woods is a great hero, it’s obvious that he loves Chloe and that he just needs to get out of his own way. As soon as that happens, they really start to build a relationship, and really pull together when outside forces are out to get them. I really think the mystery of who is after these two leads to some great moments of action and suspense.

This is fourth Halle Shifters book, and I definitely recommend reading the others. The author does give a lot of background, but all the characters from past book that stop by were much easier to understand since I’ve read the others.

Chloe and James were fantastic together, and I look forward to seeing them in future books, and definitely want the conclusion of the overall mystery. I enjoyed the way this book ended with a little bit wrapped up but I definitely want to see how the author finishes out the overall story arc. This is a great story and I highly recommend it.
