Falke's Peak by Anna Leigh Keaton & Madison Layle
Stressed out ad-exec Dakota wandered into Catamount Outfitters in search of a guide for a wilderness excursion. She didn't expect to be greeted by not one, but five of the most ruggedly delicious-looking men she'd ever seen. Not to mention a live cougar guarding the shop.
The Falke brothers have more than just good looks in their genes.
Eldest brother Axel agrees to guide Dakota on her mountain trek. In cougar form, Axel's twin, Gunnar, was there as a protection from predators—but he had his eye on the sexy client instead.
Into the wild...
While the rule with clients was "paws-off," both Axel and Gunnar couldn't resist Dakota's seductive Native American beauty and determination. As cold days led to hot nights in the cabin, Axel and Gunnar wondered if they'd finally found a woman strong enough to tame them...
Why I decided to read this book: I was looking through all the new releases on Netgalley and saw this one and as you can see from the reading the synopsis, it really tripped my trigger. That and the cover I think is pretty neat too.
Likes?......: What really drew me into the story was Dakota. The way she's described you think "fluffy city girl," but the farther you read into the book you definitely start to change your tune about her. I also liked the premise of "modern day" shapeshifters....Especially extremely HOT "modern day" shapeshifters who give one hell of a back rub! Is it wrong that I really liked the internal struggle of Axel and Gunnar? Cause I REALLY did.
The sexual stuff?!?!?!?...Just as HOT as the "modern day" shapeshifters!
Dislikes?......: I don't have very many....I didn't particularly care for the "deception" scene. I did feel that at certain points the story was a little bit rushed. Overall, not too many dislikes.
Overall: I really enjoyed this story. Even with the couple of dislikes that I found in the story I think that this is a VERY good beginning to the author's series. I can hardly wait to check out the rest of the series! Hopefully each of the remaining brothers and Heidi will get their own stories!
