Savage Urges by Suzanne Wright
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Suzanne Wright created another exceptional story with the fifth book of the Phoenix Pack Series; Savage Urges. Wolf-shifter, Makenna Wray, volunteers at a shelter for lone-shifters that once rescued her. She helps a teenage boy named Zac Lewis, and discovers he is related to Phoenix Pack enforcer, Ryan Conner. When Ryan meets the she-wolf that introduced him to his cousin, he was not expecting to feel a connection to her. The pack is cautious due to the bad reputation lone-shifters have. Ryan’s protective instincts come into play when alpha, Remy Deacon, threatens Makenna and the shelter. This contemporary PNR is suitable for adults.
As always, Suzanne Wright does a fabulous job with her character development. I love Makenna. She sort of reminds me of Roni from the Mercury Pack with her odd out of the blue questions; similar to Roni’s uncomfortable statistics. Okay other than that, Roni and McKenna are really nothing alike, but I could see them becoming good friends. Makenna is quirky, smart, and brave. She cares about others. I love Ryan. He is a broody, quiet, dominant enforcer that will do anything to protect what is his. I appreciated how Makenna makes Ryan more outgoing and playful. I love how everyone around them recognizes that. The little kids in the story made me laugh, especially Savannah’s confrontations with Greta.
I enjoyed the plot. All the details were well executed. It was full of action and excitement. I love both the Phoenix and Mercury Pack Series; so I was happy characters from both series played an important role in this story. Remy made an interesting antagonist. He had a screwed-up life. The man was twisted and scheming. The story had a thrilling ending and felt well resolved. The Phoenix Pack is a great series for anyone who enjoys shapeshifter paranormal romances.
