He has to find and retrieve the key to the cure: dangerous murderer, Thea Quinn.Thea’s attempts to evade the ruthless werewolf are not only thwarted by the Alpha, but by outside dangers. With no choice but to rely on one another for survival, truths are revealed, intensifying a passionate connection they both fight to resist.

My Thoughts:

When I found out Samantha Young was releasing a paranormal book I was so excited. One of my favorite books by her is Slumber, so when I saw she was going back to the paranormal/fantasy side of her writing I was so here for it. War Of Hearts was such a good read and I just loved it from start to finish.

Thea and Conall are both such great characters. Thea is incredible. I loved her strength and determination and I loved that she could lay everyone out flat. She was a force to be reckoned with. And Conall is a grumpy alpha werewolf and naturally I loved him. He was so gruff but also so sweet and once he decided how he felt about Thea he didn’t hold back. He melted my heart at times. I also loved the way their relationship grew. It was a delicious slow burn and enemies to lovers. Their chemistry was insane and I just really loved them together. Also I love how their relationship was so balanced and had such a give and take. Conall is still an alpha, but being an alpha doesn’t mean you’re a controlling jerk at all times, he respected Thea and her decisions even when he wished she would just stay in bubble wrap.

And while the romance is wonderful, the action and suspense also delivered. The story to this one keeps you on your toes and it’s hard to put down. This isn’t a short book but I devoured it. It has a real addictive quality to it and it was hard to stop reading once I dove in. I loved all the action in this one and I love how it complemented the romance side so well.

War Of Hearts was a great read and I really hope we get to go back to this world. Conall and Thea’s story is complete but there is definitely room for more stories in this world.

Excerpt:

Stepping back inside the motel room, Thea halted as Conall came out of the bathroom. His height caused a logistical problem for her next move. Although his color hadn’t fully returned to normal, the wolf was looking much stronger. She didn’t know if she could take him in a fight when he was at full strength, which was more than a little concerning. As if he’d read her mind, he cut her an expressionless look. “You should have left me to die, lass.” “Probably. I guess I’m just going to have to take the chance you were bluffing.” He frowned and opened his mouth to question her, but Thea had already made her move. Before he could comprehend it, she was on the bed behind him and reaching for his head before his weakened reflexes could catch up. The crack of his neck echoed around the room, causing a sick lurch in Thea’s stomach. For some reason, stupid tears stung her eyes as she watched his body hit the ground with an almighty thud. Why should she care? It wasn’t like he was dead. She’d knocked him out. For … however long he took to heal. And he had stuck her with that goddamn injection. Speaking of … Thea jumped off the mattress, avoiding Conall’s body. Earlier when she’d been treating his wounds, she’d spied the syringes in the first aid kit. Grabbing them, Thea hurried out of the motel room and toward the fields beyond. Quickly she dug a hole with her bare hands and buried the syringes. Hurrying back, she avoided staring at Conall because he looked very much dead. She grabbed his wallet and as she took his money, leaving him his credit cards, a folded-up photograph caught her attention. Curiosity got the better of her and she pulled it out. Smoothing her fingers across the picture, she spotted who she thought was Conall only to realize it wasn’t. The man who looked like him was standing next to a much younger Conall, and Thea deduced it was his father. The younger Conall had his arm around the waist of a small, redheaded girl buried into his side. And beside the man she’d mistaken for Conall was a beautiful redheaded woman. Was this Conall and his family? They were standing on a rocky beach, a beautiful lake and mountains behind them. Thea wondered which one of them was sick. Which of these people was he willing to sacrifice her for? Memories of her own parents swelled in her throat, burning and screaming to get out. But Thea shoved them back down as she shoved the photograph into his wallet. There were times she pulled those memories out and let herself swim in the pain because it was worth it to remember the happy moments. But now was not the time. With a ruthless supernatural sure to wake up from a broken neck wanting to kill her, and some unknown entity out there hunting her too, now was very much the time to go.
