“You are mine Genesis. There’s no turning back. I don’t share, and I don’t let go of what’s mine. I won’t give you up.”~Nicole Riddley, Catching Genesis
Genesis Fairchild has been waiting 18 long years for her mate, only to be rejected by him on her birthday. But just as she is getting ready to throw in the towel on love, a certain silver-eyed Lycan named Constantine corners her and tells her that she is his soulmate. Genesis is suddenly thrust into a world of lycan royalty as her inner wolf is making changes of her own. To top it off, the mate who rejected her wants her by his side as his mistress, and his father, the Alpha of her pack, will stop at nothing to make that happen. Will Genesis be forced to complete the bond with her werewolf mate that only wants her for what she can give him? Or will she be able to chose the Lycan who will cherish her above all? Either way, Genesis will not go down without fighting tooth and claw for what she wants.
This book was such a different take on shifters that I simply had to love it. It takes such a brilliant and inventive author to flip the script on a nearly cemented plot-type. You will constantly be surprised about the direction that Riddley takes her characters and will be oh-so-happy with the outcome. It took me a while to open this book but once I got through the first page I could not put it down. Riddley’s heroine Genesis is fierce and stubborn and passionate about what she wants. Constantine is protective, terriorital and suppportive of Genesis and the development of their connection similar to reality in how it is a “imperfectly perfect” relationship. I am so glad that I bought this book on kindle because if I had bought it in paperback, it would already be losing pages and worn through. I cannot recommend this book enough!
