Giveaway, Tour & Review: Wicked Cravings (The Phoenix Pack #2) by Suzanne Wright

3.5 Review

Goodreads Summary:

Despite having been besotted with Dante Garcea since she was a child, wolf shifter Jaime Farrow figures that it’s time to move past the crush. If he wanted her, he wouldn’t have ignored her flirtatious behavior, right? Hiding her intense attraction to him isn’t easy – especially now that they're part of the same pack again – but with bigger issues to worry about and with the submissive wolf act to maintain, Jaime is resolute on moving forward. Now if only the workaholic control-freak would let her…

As the pack Beta, Dante doesn't have the space or time in his life for a relationship. As such, he ignores his intense hunger for the willful – and sometimes crazy – Jaime. Yet when her flirtations abruptly end, Dante finds that he doesn’t like losing her attention. He finds something else too – Jaime's hiding something. Determined to uncover her secret, he sets out to break through her defenses, even though being around her intensifies his cravings for her. What he finds is a problem that Jaime is convinced not even a powerful Beta can solve.

**ARC provided for honest review**

Wicked Cravings is the second book in The Phoenix Pack series.  The first, Feral Sins, is one of my all time favorite books.  You need to read it before WC!  

Yummy!!!  Dante is bold, strong, dominate, responsible, caring and not looking for a mate.  He sinks his teen into all his work of being Beta to Trey.  he doesn't delegate his work and actually likes staying totally busy to drown out his hurt.  He plays around with females, but always let them know that its just for fun and nothing will ever come of it.  

Since he was burned at the ripe old age of 18, he doesn't want to have that connection with anyone again.  he doesn't want the hurt.

Jamie has just joined The Phoenix Pack along with her brother Gabe.  Jamie was a kid when Dante left their pack, but has had it bad for him ever since. But since all of her perfectly clear advances towards him have been brushed off, Jamie has vowed to now let him go.   She has to much self respect to keep pursuing him.  Jaime is also hiding a very powerful secret that prevents her from ever wanting to find a mate.  She knows that at any moment everything could be taken away from her.  She doesn't want to hurt her mate in that way because it would hurt to much.  She doesn't want to imprint either--this would also cause to much pain.

Little does Jamie know that once, Dante realizes she's moved on from him, his wheels start turning and he doesn't like it so much.

Dante realizes that while he may never have a true mate, he wants Jamie.

Things I liked:

Jamie's attitude--she is spunky and quick whited.  (Reminds me a lot of Taryn)

Dante's Protectiveness--Who doesn't love a man who will do anything to protect you!

The Who Done It--I liked trying to figure out who was behind all the 'incodents.'

Trey & Taryn--God I love these two!! I love that we see the continuation of their story and love that we get to witness something totally special!

Things I liked Not So Much:

Predictability--Some of the scenes, I found to be very predictable. As I was reading, I thought oh I bet this happens...and then it played out exactly like I had it in my head.

Love/Bedroom--While good, the connections were not as intense as I would have thought.  Especially, after the first book was so strong in this area.  

Overall, good read. I did like it, but I thought it was missing a bit for me.
