Alex McCann and Teodora "Ted" Vasquez left Cambio Springs together. Ted came back. Alex didn't. Now, years later, the future alpha of the McCann wolves has returned with plans to bring new life to the dying desert community. Plans that could change everything for the isolated enclave of shapeshifters in the California desert. Some love the plan. Others hate it. As the town's doctor and one of the strongest daughters in the cat clan, Ted has her own concerns about exposing her community to outsiders. The two former lovers are at each other's throats. And everyone is watching to see what happens. But when murder once again strikes Cambio Springs, can they overcome their past to help the community they both call home? And can the love they shared once burn again when so many stand against it?

Good, But Not Quite Up To Par

I enjoyed the first book in this series, as well as the novellas. I believe Ms. Hunter is an extremely talented author. Desert Bound was not a bad book and was eminently readable. If written by someone else I might have rated it higher. However, I felt that she wasn't terribly committed to this plot. After the years of tension, hurt feelings, anger, frustration and regret between the two main characters, their differences seemed fairly insurmountable. Then they reunited so abruptly it seemed almost anti-climactic. And while her books are usually chock full of characters, that works because she either proves their value to the story by the end of the book or makes it clear she is setting a character up in this book that will reoccur in future story lines with a purpose. I felt like there were superfluous characters in this book, involved in fairly heavy scenes and then disappearing without any idea of why they were included.

Again, enjoyable book and definitely worth reading if you liked the first book in the series. I recommend you read the first book in the series and the novellas before reading this book. Just not up to her best efforts

Steamy Mystery!

This book was definitely more steamy than book 1. The novella before this was great to give you background on the history of Alex and Ted, but not required to read before this. As with book 1, the mystery was intriguing and the characters are great! The narrator delivers an awesome performance again! I can't wait to read book 3! I wish there were more in the series! #urbanfantasy #steamy #tagsgiving #sweepstakes

Strangely captivating

This is the second book in the series I've read. Cons: The story relies too much on having read the first book in the series. It was still a bit confusing more than half way into the book. Pros: Interesting characters both primary and secondary. Very compelling dynamics between the characters. Captivating plot that makes the story one that is read in one sitting.

An excellent murder mystery

with a side of romance, kidnapping, snake shifters, bird shifters, lizard shifter, wolf shifters, cougar shifters, and befuddled humans. This is actually a high quality well written mystery.

I'm loving this entire series. I had to look up and get the next book while listening to the last chapter of this one. Hope she writes more.

Interesting story with a new twist to becoming shifters

Nice lovers-to-haters-to-lovers with a shifter thrown in. Good plot and the story is nice, not too much angsts and strong women. The reason for the poor performance was the narrator ending in an up note on every sentence, sounding like everything was a hostage situation instead of walking down the street laughing — except the sexy scenes, where the woman’s dialog was delivered as if she was at the deli counter buying turkey.

coming back home but moving forward

Alex McCann is has come home to Cambio Springs to build a spa and to stay. Teadora Vasquez got her medical degree and came home a while ago to practice. They used to live together and love each other very much. Can Alex convince Tea to take a chance on him again? And can Alex protect Tea when she insists on helping him find out who murdered one of their own? Ivary does an ok job of narration.

Great as always

I love this series also enough to keep me on the edge of my seat.
