The Book Depository 


Having turned his back on his snow leopard pride, Cavanaugh has been counting the days until he’s free of a role he never wanted—one that separated him from his fated female and stands between him and the future he craves with her.

Just days from the night he will finally be free to be with the low-ranking beauty who stole his heart, she walks back into his life and threatens to destroy everything he’s worked towards in the five long years they’ve been apart.

Eloise has travelled across continents searching for the male who was once her best friend and so much more to her, but was now her pride’s true alpha. Desperate to fulfil a promise to her kin to save them from the tyrant he left in charge, she convinces Cavanaugh to return to his pride, but as they journey to Bhutan, doubts bloom and old feelings resurface, tearing her between duty and her deepest desires and impossible dreams.

Will Eloise be able to resist the burning need that Cavanaugh reignites in her and remember her place in the pride? And can Cavanaugh find a way to save his kin and claim the future he craves with the woman he loves?

My Thoughts:

Craved By An Alpha is the fifth book in this series but does a wonderful job at standing alone.

This one had a whole lot of misunderstandings mostly due to a lack of communication, doubts, time apart, and other peoples perceptions of what is right.

Cavanaugh was sexy, strong, smart and honorable. After suffering for years of being apart from his mate, he is days away from being able to claim her.

Then Eloise shows up and not knowing of his plans, begs him to return and take his place as Alpha.

The current Alpha is sadistic and has horrible plans for all of the women as soon as he is officially named the Alpha. She says that Cavanaugh needs to stop him.

Cavanaugh's repeated thoughts annoyed me a little but I understand that he kept reminding himself. I could have done without the reminding though.

There was plenty of romance, action, danger, and kitty shifters in this one. The descriptive scenery was also a plus. I could almost imagine it and it was beautiful.

The pace was not as steady as I am used to in her books. Some parts were a little slower like when they were on their journey back to the Pride lands. The last third of the book had lots of action and moved at a faster pace. Regardless, I enjoyed this one just like I've enjoyed all of Felicity's other books. They can't all be perfect or it would be boring. Right?

This is a must read if you like shifters, Felicity's books (who doesn't?) or both!

I received an ecopy in exchange for my honest opinion. This was another good addition to an awesome shifter series.
