Review: Coyote Wild
Coyote Wild by Rhian Cahill
3.5 out of 5 Licks
Book two in the Coyote Hunger series.
Brogan Wilder knows all about animal urges. As a coyote shifter, he’s lived with them all his life but he’s never experienced the bone-deep hunger Eloise Crawford elicits. Claiming a mate is one thing. Claiming one who’s human and has no idea shifters exist is another matter altogether. In El, he’s found his destiny. Now he just has to convince her they are meant to be together.
A visit to help her best friend with wedding plans seems like just the kind of relaxation El is after. But once she arrives, there’s nothing relaxing about the reaction she has to her friend’s brother. Suddenly her senses are on high alert and she’s drawn to him in a way she finds nothing short of terrifying. But there’s more to this man than his golden eyes and magical touch. There’s something else. Something not exactly human.
Accepting her fate should have been the difficult part, but when El finds herself the target of an outraged pack member, the true struggle begins.
This is book two in the series and follows Rowan’s brother Brogan and his mate Eloise “El”. You don’t have to read the first in the series to read this one but it does give you a little bit more of an insight into this story. It starts off with El coming to visit Rowan for her upcoming wedding and Brogan getting one smell of her and knowing that she’s his destined mate. The only problem is that she’s human and has no clue what they are. When they meet there’s this instant overwhelming lust. Which causes Brogan to accidentally mark her before he can explain about him being a shifter. This puts her at even more risk and gives her no choice but to become his mate. Her being human also can also put his position as pack Sovereign at risk. But he’s willing to leave everything behind for her to keep her safe and because she’s his chosen.
The chemistry between the two is very hot! And the sex is steamy. My only problem with this was just how easy it was for El to accept all of this. One minute she’s commenting how she’s fighting between lust and loathing towards Brogan and the next she’s completely cool with being his mate. There was a little action in this with the bad guy Marcus who was in the first book kidnaps El to challenge Brogan but it was very anti-climatic.
Overall it was a sweet love story with really hot sex and I enjoyed all of the characters. I’m interested to see who the next story follows.
