Coyote Whispers by Rhian Cahill
3.5 out of 5 Licks
Book three in the Coyote Hunger series.
“Doc” Gordie has tried to keep Steve McKenna at arm’s length, but the sexy coyote shifter is under her skin, in her blood and in her heart. No matter how much she fears what he makes her feel, she can’t bear to stay away. After he rescues her from a vicious attack, Gordie is helpless to deny the sizzling attraction burning between them.
There hasn’t been a day Steve has not wanted Doc in his bed, but bruised and bloody is not what he had in mind. The need for revenge is riding his coyote—almost as much as his aching desire to finally claim Doc as his own. But that will have to wait. He must first convince Doc the safest place for her is by his side. When a second attack draws them together, suppressed needs explode, leaving no doubt where they both belong. But danger is never far behind and Gordie is forced to make a fatal decision that could destroy all they’ve worked so hard to discover.
This one has to be my favorite installment of the series. The story follows Gordie “Doc” and Steve. They were more of minor characters in the first two stories. Right of the bat with this one it starts with the action, Gordie is attacked and Steve finds her and takes care of her. You come to find out that Gordie is his mate but she’s been denying it for guilt over her husband and unborn child’s death. She married Anthony to be turned into a coyote because she wanted to be like everyone else. He loved her but she didn’t feel the same.
I loved both of these characters. Gordie for all that’s happened to her is a very strong woman. Yes she’s fighting her inner coyote and not wanting to let Steve in but her flaws make you like her even more. Steve is just adorable. He’s very goofy and sweet. But determined to not let Gordie shut him out. The romance between them is very believable. And the sex is super HOT! It was the steamiest yet of the series.
You don’t have to read this series in order but it does refer back to some things that happened in the previous two books. But it would be ok to read as a stand alone.
This had a lot more of a build up with the romance and the action. Even though it still left you wanting a little more of an explanation as to why the bad guy did what he did.
