Description from the publisher:
What would you do if a simple errand takes a deadly twist, turning you from cautious prey to dangerous predator?

Someone is trying to send a deadly message to Mason, arranging the deaths of those he loves and it puts the entire pack and Alpha on high alert.  Darcy understands the primal instincts driving her beloved Mason's commands.  With the help of those he sets as protectors, she learns about herself and the things she'll need to help support her Alpha and pack. When events turn dire however, one truth offers her strength - once given, oaths are unbreakable ... even if it means risking it all.

An innocent trip to the store for Darcy, the alpha's soon-to-be mate, and his sister, Jasmine, leads to the first volley of a war being brought to the Mystic Wolves Pack.  Mason will need to lead his people while his personal world is crumbling.  Who was behind the attack?  Can they be defeated before the pack is destroyed?  Before Mason is destroyed?
This is my favorite genre, so I have high expectations when sitting down to werewolf pack/romance stories.  Ms. Boring does not disappoint!  There was laughter and tears and tons of sexual tension.  The humor is flawless.  It is not easy to convey sarcasm and snarkiness, but Ms. Boring does it and makes it seem effortless and natural.  I loved the characters.  Of course, our main characters are Darcy and Mason.  Darcy has made a purity promise until their mating ceremony.  Until then, the sexual tension absolutely jumps off the page (or out of the Kindle in my case).  Mason's sister, Jasmine, is also Darcy's best friend within the Mystic Wolves Pack. Between the two of them, the men are kept on their toes and happily under the girls' thumbs.  I love the dynamics between the girls and their guys.   Then there is Mason.  He is perfectly swoon-worthy – alpha, handsome, protective, and yet vulnerable with Darcy.  He is this ideal mixture of sweet and stern that gets my motor running.
I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the available books in this series (this month!).  A huge thank you to Ms. Boring and Read Between the Lines for setting up the tour for the series.  See you on the 14th with my review of FORGET ME NOT!

“You want to be wooed, huh? I’m not sure I know how to do that.  You may have to tell me what to do.” The cocky grin he’d been wearing suddenly became softer, his eyes twinkling, and I caught a flash of the boyish charm I’d fallen for.
“Oh no, I’m not explaining anything to you.  You should know by now, Mr.  Almighty-I-Am-Alpha.  Just know this—if you don’t get it right … you’re a dead man.”
He let out a rich, throaty laugh, and the sound made the soles of my feet tingle.  In fact, it made everything tingle, and I braced myself.  I was about to get ravished.
I didn’t move a muscle as he advanced, or resist as he finally gathered me into his arms.  My eyes instantly closed and I tilted my head—waiting.  Everything was still, our surroundings dimmed to a quiet hush.
He moved slowly, brushing his mouth against mine softly, tenderly.  It was almost like a whisper, the feel of his breath fanning gently over my skin, and when he repeated the motion, goose bumps erupted.
Even though I knew it was coming, the touch of his tongue tracing my bottom lip had me leaning into him, my hands gripping the top of his pants to steady myself.  I don’t know how long we stood there for, his mouth barely caressing mine before the mood changed, and he made his move.
