When half–wolf shifter Frankie Newman receives an e-mail from a family member she didn’t know existed, a secret is revealed: as a child, Frankie witnessed her father killing her mother…and then himself. Frankie was torn from her pack by her mother’s human relatives, and the trauma was erased from her memory. Realizing that she’s been lied to her entire life, she’s never felt more alone. Until she catches the scent of an old friend—warmly familiar and intoxicating.

Trick Hardy, enforcer of the Phoenix Pack, can sense the rush of mutual attraction when he sees Frankie again. He knows immediately that she’s his true mate. But he also knows that, given her fragile state, he needs to tread with care—no matter how fierce his surging desires.

As aroused as Frankie is by Trick’s darkly dominant air and simmering desire, her priority right now is her past—not her future, no matter how tempting. But as more secrets emerge and Frankie’s life is threatened, Trick must do everything he can to keep her close and safe. After all, it’s their destiny

The Review: Wild Hunger is the seventh book in the Phoenix Pack series by author Suzanne Wright. I adore this series and I always look forward to reading a new book featuring these awesome characters.

The story follows Frankie Newman, a half shifter, who has always known her shifter father murdered her human mother and then himself, however what Frankie doesn’t know is the extended family she was forced to leave behind when her grandparents took her in. When she is contacted by Lydia, her aunt and who is also a member of the Phoenix Pack its then she realises her life has been a lie and she desperately wants to discover the truth. And it’s there she is reunited with Trick Hardy, an enforcer of the Phoenix Pack. Trick instantly knows that Frankie is his mate. The problem is the connection is blocked from Frankie’s and Trick knows he needs to tread lightly if he wants to keep Frankie in his life. So as Trick works his way into Frankie’s life its then dark secrets start to emerge. 

I enjoy Suzanne Wright’s books regardless of enjoying some more than honest. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the last book and I’ll be honest with you, Wild Hunger failed to appeal to me as much as her recent Mercury Pack books did. 

I’ve been desperately waiting for the author to write a story where the characters know their mate from the first meeting. I’ve been waiting for what feels like ages and I have to say now that I have it, I’m kind of disappointed. I just can’t understand why I didn’t enjoy it as much as I was hoping. It might have been because the story suspense between the two main characters, or maybe it was because the story was just a little bit predictable, and I can’t help feel like while I enjoyed getting to know these characters more, the plot of the story just felt a little bit too convenient and it was very easy to work out who the real bad guy was in the story. 

I have to say I was glad for once that Greta wasn’t her usual normal annoying self. I complained about her in my last review and I’m glad my prayers were answered. She was much more bearable in this book and I’m hoping we can see more of her like this. 

In the end, while Wild Hunger wasn’t a favourite, I still look forward to more books in the series. I understand I’m not always going to enjoy every book but I can still be hopeful that I will.  

Thank you to Montlake Romance for giving me the opportunity to review this book in exchange for an honest review.
