He’ll do whatever it takes to earn back her trust A vacation is exactly what Ethan needs to escape the mate hungry females in his pack Determined to have fun he can’t think of a better way to start than sampling all the different flavors the shifter only resort has to offer and not the food variety But. Chasing ParadiseLiked the h though she was awesome and deserved a guy who wooed her and made her laugh not cry so much someone who treated her a guy who wooed her and made her laugh not cry so much someone who treated her the precious mate she was and was all in from the very firstRecommended for readers who like a grovelling H 3 stars This seuel to Arctic Winds is an excellent read Chasing Paradise is the story of Ethan and Gwen and how miscommunication leads to a lack of trust in a mated relationship I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book I found I got to now the main characters really well and although the other Callahan family members were not involved in the story much nor the town of Alpine Woods you still got #a small insight into the pack matrix and how important family #small insight into the pack matrix and how important family loved ones are to them allSondrae Bennett s writing is easy to read and she provides plenty of heart warm felt moments as well as sexy scenes to eep the hot steamy level at a high Bennett writes from the point of view of both Ethan and Gwen which I love because as the reader you can see how they were totally misreading each other even though they wanted the same things This at times was uite amusingThe front cover of the book says He ll do whatever it takes to win her trust and does he Well Chasing Paradise is definitely worth a read to find out The Alphine Woods Shifters series follows a world where shifters exist in many different forms Not only do you have the predatory shifter animals but you also have a range of other shifter types I found the concept of an otter shifter to be charming Gwen is a beautiful curvy woman who has been looking forward to finding her mate for a long time but never imagined she would end up with an alpha wolf And Ethan who had run away for a holiday in the sun in order to avoid pressure to become mated never imaged he d end up well mated at all reallyThe whole premise of this book is whether it s possible to move on after someone you care about has said a silly hurtful thing not because they mean to hurt you but because of what s going on in their own liveshead at the time And it s beautifully handled with strong characters who are focussed on building a relationship The eual time spent on both Ethan and Gwen s POV means that what could have ended up an angst ridden he hurt me novel instead ends up as a tale about grown up relationships The novella length means you don t get sick of all the angst and you see enough of the secondary characters to eep interested in the series Even though this is the second book in a series it could be read as a stand alone book although Arctic Winds gives you the background of the town and how this pack is so differentFullyrevised review posted on my blog at wwwwanderinghueswordpresscom Chasing Paradise has all the usual tropes for this ind of story In this case though they are as simplified as they can be especially the soulmate one Unlike some people I find the soulmate theme comforting and I usually enjoy it a bit than this I liked the idea of otter shifters a lot They are cut. Irls at the resort Or worse crawl back unable to resist the mating pull but not really wanting her She needs to get away and her own vacation sounds like the perfect plan But she should have remembered what her mother always taught her never run from a predator unless you want them to chase you The hunt is. .
