The second book in Alyssa Rose Ivy's series, The Dire Wolves Chronicles, releases today!
Dusk (The Dire Wolves Chronicles #2)
by Alyssa Rose Ivy
Release Date: January 12, 2015
Genre: New Adult Paranormal
Hunter is trying to make Mary Anne fall in love with him. She promised to be with him. I was happy Hunter had his own POV. He seemed really creepy in the first book but seeing his side of things I began to understand him. I still think he is wrong to try to force Mary Anne into a relationship when obviously her heart is with Gage. But I know Hunter feels like Mary Anne is right for him and that she will help change things for the Dire Wolves which he is desperate to do. Even though I totally love Gage and want her with him, there were times when I began to want to see her with Hunter. Hunter was charming and was trying really hard to be good to Mary Anne.
Poor Gage is going through so much in this book. Trying to understand his change. Having to see Mary Anne with Hunter. Feeling helpless as to what he can do to make things right. He never gave up though. He knew he would find a way back to Mary Anne no matter what it took. Although he made some mistakes that complicate things further. Loved the Levi and Allie cameo. And the little surprise that Allie mentioned. Read this in one sitting. Very excited for the next book. I hope that somehow Mary Anne and Gage can help Hunter and they can all work together. The wolves seemed like creepers in the first book but they grew on me in this book and I want things to work out for them.
“Hunter?” she asked in a low voice as we sat in front of the fire downstairs. We’d started back with our favorite evening ritual, only now she sat right at my side. The rest the pack was giving us plenty of space. There were benefits to being Alpha.
“Yes?” I smiled at her. She was so beautiful. I zeroed in on her lips, needing to claim them with my own.
“Tell me about your dreams.”
“My dreams?” I put an arm around her and pulled her down into my side. I could feel her heartbeat and that put me at ease. “What kind of dreams?”
“What kind do you have?”
“The usual types I guess.”
“Are they ever about me?” She looked up at me with those expressive eyes of hers.
“You mean now? Are you asking if I dream about you?”
“Before? Why would I have dreamed about you before I met you? How would that be possible?” Someone had told her something. That someone was going to be in a lot of trouble.
“How is it possible that you’re a wolf? I’m starting to believe that anything is possible.”
I ignored her use of the term wolf. It wasn’t worth an argument. She’d start calling us Dires eventually. “Do you really want to know?” The can of worms had been opened. There was no turning back.
“Yes. Why else would I ask?”
“Come here.” I gestured with my hand.
“I am here.”
“On to my lap.” If she wanted something from me, I was getting something from her.
“You want me to sit on your lap?”
“You know exactly what I’m asking you to do.”
She put a leg over mine and straddled my lap. She settled herself down, awakening my body even more than it already was. “Happy now?”
“I’m always happy when you’re with me.”
