Review @HolleyTrent - The Cougar's Pawn by Holley Trent (Desert Guards #1)

The Cougar’s Pawn
Desert Guards #1
by Holley Trent

Goodreads blurb:  Ellery Colvard escapes her perfectly organized life for a camping trip with her friends, hoping for a tiny thrill. She’ll settle for a distraction, but instead she gets swept off her feet. Literally.

Alpha were-cougar Mason Foye needs a mate, even if he has to resort to drastic measures to get one. But when he and his brothers sweep up Ellery and her friends, the last thing he expects is a woman with a nasty bite of her own. Not only does Ellery know all about shifters, she’s got magic. In fact, the little witch is a bit scary. What’s more, Ellery isn’t convinced fated mates exist.

If Mason can’t persuade Ellery that they’re destined for a life of excitement together, he’s doomed to spend the rest of his days in his cougar form – without his son, his family, or the woman he’s already fallen for head over heels.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***Received a copy of the ebook for an honest review

The cover is pretty, but he doesn’t have the alpha fierce look to me….he needs to “alpha up”  :)

This is the first story I have read by Holley Trent, and the first in a new series.  I do own two of her other series though just haven’t read them yet, and they are going to be bumped in priority because I loved this story especially the Sons of Gulielmus series since I was introduced to some of the characters…I want to know more :)  This does have some steamy scenes, so it is for adults only.  The world and story that Holley has weaved together is just amazing.  She grabbed my attention from the start, and I could not put the book down.  It was a marathon reading day, and I loved every minute of it.  Her style and sense of humor had me cracking up and my mom asking what’s so funny.

Ellery is an amazing and strong woman which I love, and Mason is an alpha who tries to do it all.  Their story is amazing and action packed.  There is always something going on or some snarky conversation to keep you entertained.

I highly recommend this book to any shifter lover because you will find something you love or enjoy while being thoroughly entertained :)

Interested in reading???
