Brody has been such a fun side-kick to the others through this whole series that I was glad to see him get his own book. It was something a bit different for the series since much of the story takes place with Brody and his lady love locked away by the evil villain who is hounding the people at Kodiak Point. The back and forth banter and snarky humor in the face of his captors kept this story from getting edgy. I honestly don’t know how the author does it. She pairs her humor and hot passion with settings and situations that could get pretty dark and scary- and they are if the reader stops to analyze, but yet, the opposite is true too because they are also a fun romp.

The books in the series would best be read in order to follow the series arc. There are several references to events and people from the other books that make much more sense after getting their stories and this one has some big clues about the faceless master villain that would spoil it for the earlier stories too.

The story opens with carefree adventure seeker, Brody the wolf shifter, wistfully wanting things to get exciting. Unlike his buddies, he tends to thrive on excitement and danger. And like many who have wishes of that nature, life gets interesting in the form of being lured by a mysterious beauty into captivity by a sadistic mastermind set on his secret plans that involve Brody getting cozy with the cute female he dubs Bait.

Layla has a special gift that makes her a hot commodity. She has lived in captivity most of her life being passed from master to master when the one before is bested by the stronger one who rips her away to be his. This latest one is the worst yet. She hates him and hates being used as a tool, but what’s a gal to do when over fifty escape attempts had led to failure and punishment. The latest shifter captive of her master will die in pain like all the rest or so she assumes even though he cockily promises her different and tells her to trust him. Trust, yeah right! She unloaded that weak trait along with a few others several escape attempts ago. Honesty forces her to admit that her reaction to him is different from all the others. She is strongly attracted and she wants to believe when he says that he can get out.

I had a good time with this one. The characters are just so great to read along with as the the story plays out. Brody has always been a favorite, but paired with the wise-cracking Layla and the repartee they get up too, I had a blast. Her humor in the face of the life she has had just made it even better.

Naked or not, Brody bounded from the bed and took a stance in front of her. Did he think he could protect her? With what? His superbly tight butt? Maybe Johnson would rise to the occasion and smite the guards.

Layla from Wolf’s Capture (Kindle Locations 1105-1106)

She spits in the eye of the sadistic slime that has most men shaking in their boots. It’s neat to watch her slowly open up to Brody and his charm after all she has been through. And charm, he has in spades. Brody sees the danger, but he also sees it as part of his life’s adventure. He’s also not afraid to say what he feels and put himself out there when he feels it.

And the villain? Oh yes, serious clues were given here so that what he is and what he’s up to is coming out. Series fans will love these reveals. Travis’ book is going to get mighty interesting I think. Assuming Betty Sue lets her baby out of her sight.

All told, this was another fantastic story in the Kodiak Point series. Those who enjoy hot and spicy shifter romantic comedy should definitely pick these up.

My thanks to the author for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

About Eve Langlais

~ New York Times and USA Today Bestseller

Hello, my name is Eve and I am a Canadian author who loves to write hot romance, usually with werewolves, cyborgs or aliens.

I should warn you that I possess a twisted imagination and a sarcastic sense of humor something I like to let loose in my writing. I enjoy strong alpha males, and shifters. Lots of big, overprotective shifters. I am also extremely partial to aliens, the kind who like to abduct humans and then drive them insane…with pleasure. Do you like something a little darker? Then check out my cyborgs whose battle with humanity have captivated readers worldwide.

I love to write, and while I don’t always know what my mind is going to come up with next, I can promise it will be fun, probably humorous and most of all romantic, because I love a happily ever after.

Thanks so much for coming by and checking me out. If you’d like to know more, read some excerpts or find out what’s coming next, then please visit me at http://www.EveLanglais.com

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

    Never heard of this series before, I love books about shapeshifters, so I’ll might check out this series. I noticed the first book is about a bear shifter, I haven’t read a bear shifter book before.

    Were all the books in this series a 4 star for you?

    • This is a fun series! Each book has a different shifter type- Kodiak Bear/human, Moose/Arctic Fox, Polar Bear/Human, Caribou/Cougar, and then this one with a wolf/gifted human. Yep all a four star read for me. They are really fun, Lola!

      • Lola R
