Welcome To Sin City and The Fall Of The Four Horsemen. What an awesome hook for the series and this fantastic story. I was completely pulled into the drama and truly enjoyed everything, the romance, the excitement and suspense that had me gripped right up until the end.
This book was Judge and Charli’s story. The main couple connected easily but with a little bit of drama since Charli had been stealing from the casino that Judge and his horsemen brothers owned. Charli was no stranger to the paranormal world so it was no stretch to her when Judge declared that they were mates. However, she promptly stole his car and ran away because she needed to protect her little sister and keep her troubles away from Judge and his people. Of course, the determined alpha male tracked her down and from there the reunion was seamless but not without a fair bit of conflict. There was some tension with one of his brothers and danger from Charli’s past, and even then the suspense wasn’t quite over yet.
Mated To War is actually the third book in this series but it was my first adventure with the four horsemen as they find their mates. Even so I had no trouble catching up and that was because the author did an incredible job with creating the world. My introduction to everyone was subtle and on spot with the steady flow of the series. I got to know the characters and then their history which is the best way and the one I’m most comfortable with reading.
This book was a great read. The characters were wonderful and the writing style was excellent. Of course, the suspenseful plot was the main reason that I liked the story so much. Also, the story had a intriguing set up for the next book in the series with Chaos and I have to say that I am really looking forward to reading that one. So all in all, Mated To War was a winner with this happy reader !
