Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Publisher: St. Martin's
Bride McTierney has had it with men. They're cheap, self-centered, and never love her for who she is. But though she prides herself on being independent, deep down she still yearns for a knight in shining armor. She just never expected her knight in shining armor to have a shiny coat of fur...
Deadly and tortured, Vane Kattalakis isn't what he seems. Most women lament that their boyfriends are dogs. In Bride's case, hers is a wolf. A Were-Hunter wolf. Wanted dead by his enemies, Vane isn't looking for a mate. But the Fates have marked Bride as his. Now he has three weeks to either convince Bride that the supernatural is real or he will spend the rest of his life neutered--something no self-respecting wolf can accept...
But how does a wolf convince a human to trust him with her life when his enemies are out to end his? In the world of the Were-Hunters, it really is dog-eat-dog. And only one alpha male can win.
is a story I enjoyed immensely, which proved to be entertaining, sensual and funny. Even if full of risky details that could have caused its downfall, it only made it shine.
Dysfunctional family issues are so overused by Sherrilyn Kenyon, I am beginning to believe it's from her personal life. In this book however, it worked beautifully. Plain Jane's with low self-esteem are common also. Sometimes too common and unbelievable when a hot (six-packs and all) male falls for a size 18. Bride's insecurities and doubts however worked for me. She was beautiful and strong in her vulnerability.
Destined mate theme was a gamble. It is easy to fall off-track forgetting the true romance and pairing the heroes only because the Fates deemed them to be together. I believe with Night Play
it paid off.
I can honestly say the book is one of the best in Dark-Hunter series (future books not included). Sizzling from the first page, Night Play proved to be a thrilling experience as I devoured it.
Simply loved Vane's sensitive and gentle side. He won me over without even trying. His brothers Fury and Fang were an interesting addition and I can't wait for their books.
Plus, the book shows how Were-Hunters came to exist.
Trust me, it's a keeper!
