Feral Sins (The Phoenix Pack #1) by Suzanne Wright


Heat Rating

Taryn has a big problem, her father, the Alpha, has decided she must mate Roscoe. Roscoe is the Alpha of another pack and her father wants the alliance with him bad enough to sell his daughter for it and he doesn't care about Roscoe's abusive reputation when it comes to women. As far as her father is concerned she has two strikes against her, she is female and latent and her only real value is her healer ability. So far all of Taryn's solutions to her problem have holes in them; her best solution if she can contact him is to take refuge with her Uncle's Pack but that will only work if his Alpha is agreeable.

Trey's father has finally died but his Uncle has taken over his old pack and now wants Trey's pack and is determined to do whatever he has to. Trey knows he needs alliances and fast and what better way than to mate the daughter of a wolf that has several alliances. So he kidnaps Taryn and makes her a deal that is not only crazy but just may work.

With mating now done and the fireworks happening in the bedroom they fight each other and themselves to avoid imprinting but the addiction to each other makes that hard. With their Beta sitting back and dropping hints because he knows they are true mates and them messing it up at every turn it will be any wonder they finally figure it out.

I love Feral Sins, the characters are amazing and Taryn is my hero, that woman could give me lessons in swearing and being a smart ass because she puts me to shame. And then there is Greta, the grandma from hell that we all know really does like Taryn, but likes to stir up shit. Trey and his pack really can be a handful and I really got into all the escapades, there was Dominic with his cheesy sex lines and Tao who went from not liking Taryn to crushing on her. Dante and his all knowing smirk and then Marcus and Trick now that was a surprise and always is even after reading this book so many times.

I finished this on again last night and yes I have read this book a number of time and will read it many more times I am sure, because it has an emotional roller coaster, fights and is a laugh a minute, what more could girl ask for in a great book.

Favorite Quotes
I have so many favorite quotes in Feral Sins that I really had a very hard time choosing, especially since several of them will undoubtedly get me censors somewhere but hey who cares you only live once and I manage to narrow the choice down to four but can only add two or three.

“Poor girl looks like she had a fight with a vampire. Oh, and you, Taryn. Damn, you can curse. What did she call you at one point, Trey? Oh, that was it. A motherfucking, ass-licking son of a cocksucking goddamn bitch.”--Dante

“No, she’s right. My behavior has been truly unacceptable. Accept my apologies, Ms. Tyler. I know I really should have more respect for the dead.”--Taryn

“I’d rather lie under an elephant suffering from diarrhea with my mouth open wide.”--Taryn

Book's Blurb
If your inner wolf and your body react rather enthusiastically to a psychotic Alpha male who’s own wolf has a tendency to turn feral, it can’t be a good thing, can it? Entering into a bargain with him wouldn’t be good either. Unfortunately, Taryn Warner, a latent wolf shifter, doesn’t have many options open to her right now. Okay, she has no options. Basically it comes down to whether she’ll do what it takes to escape the arranged mating with the sick SOB that her father set up. As the answer in this case is yes, it looks as though she’ll have to agree to Trey Coleman’s deal…she’ll have to mate with him instead.

Having always disliked shifter politics, Trey Coleman hadn’t bothered trying to form alliances with other packs. Now that his uncle – a wolf with many alliances – means to take Trey’s territory and his pack, he has no option but to form some alliances of his own very quickly or he’ll be easily outnumbered in the upcoming battle. He figures that the easiest way to do that would be to mate with a female whose Alpha is powerful and influential. There’s only one problem with that – he would then be stuck with her, and the last thing Trey wants is a mate. When he hears of Taryn’s situation, he offers her a deal – if she falsely claims he’s her true mate and allows him to claim her, he’ll save her from her arranged mating and then let her leave after the battle with his uncle is over.

Sounds like a pretty straightforward deal...but soon Taryn and Trey realize they got more than they bargained for. Their mating instincts to protect and possess are weighing on them, they crave each other’s touch and company, and their inner wolves don’t like it whenever they’re apart. Add in that they’ll have to deal with this for an entire three months until the day of the battle finally arrives, and they’ve got themselves a recipe for disaster – or maybe for something quite the opposite.
