DRC provided by author for fair/honest review

Senior enforcer, Cameron Nickels has found her perfect mate. Blaine Andrews, leopard Pack Marshal, is strong, dominate, loyal, and passionate. He knows all her strengths and weaknesses—not to mention her pleasure points. Cam’s known Blaine most her life, but she’s always felt like something was missing and her jaguar refuses to fully accept him. Yet, she can’t walk away from him. When architect and sexy mountain lion shifter, Graham Griffin, comes to town to design the new den nursery and school, Cameron finds herself in a mating dance that throws her and her jaguar into flight mode while Blaine must decide if he can not only share his mate, but welcome another.

After his lover walked out on him a year ago, Graham has no intentions of entering another relationship any time soon. But he realizes that the fates have other plans for him when he meets Blaine and Cameron. When his ex-lover’s children are chased into Ashwood territory by a group of rogues, he discovers the male he shared a life with had died freeing the kids from the Onyx Pack. Graham must work side-by-side with the two enforcers to uncover lies from the past while his heart opens to his true mates.

Warning: Contains one-hot headed leopard, a man who thought he’d lost it all, and a woman who is about to rub up against both in the best possible ways. (thanks GoodReads for the summary)

My Thoughts -
I liked this read quite a bit. It was fast paced, wicked hot and easy to read. I did feel somewhat lost because I didn't read the first in the series, so I lost a bit of the world building aspect. I enjoyed the chemistry between the three main characters as well as the side characters.

Cameron had a unfortunate thing happen to her and she, I think, lost her self confidence and began to doubt herself and worthiness. I think she was great with Graham kids, but not kids, and could really feel the connection she made with them. I didn't get a lot from Blaine, but what I did get was hotness and bad-ass. His love for Cameron was fierce and he was willing to do what ever it took to make their bond complete. Graham was that whatever. The moment they were all in the same room, they knew - they just didn't want to admit it.

I thought the sensual scenes were super hot and well written. I also enjoyed the action/danger aspect of this story. Great story Ms Davis - I look forward to more!!
