Darkest Temptation by Rachel Van Dyken


I'm a werewolf King who chose to step down out of grief for my mate.
For centuries I've been alone, choosing to live a life of modesty despite the wealth surrounding me.
I deserve to be punished.
I crave things I have no business craving.
And it is manifesting itself in a way I'm terrified I won't be able to control any longer.
Especially since she arrived.
Vampire. Orphan. Beaten beyond recognition.
My blood calls to her in a way that makes no sense.
I'm a wolf.
She's a vampire.
The two don't mate.
They barely tolerate one another.
All it takes is one slip of control on my part — one taste.
And I doom us all.
Then again, I never knew what is lurking inside has the power to balance good and evil.

O.M.G. I absolutely cannot get enough of this series, literally one of my favorites ever and I’ve been anxiously awaiting Mason’s story since the moment he was introduced at the beginning of book one. This was one of those books that I couldn’t put down, but at the same time didn’t want to keep reading because I knew the ending would come too soon – loved every single page. Definitely recommend starting from the beginning of the series – you won’t regret it.

From the moment Serenity and Mason see one another they have an incredible connection, but not only do vampires and werewolves never get together, neither of the two believes they deserve happiness. They both struggle with accepting that it’s their destiny to be together and it’s finally time for Mason to take back his rightful place as king of the werewolves. I love that this story takes such a different route then the previous books in the series – it keeps the series fresh and interesting!

My absolute favorite part of this book was finally learning the story of Mason’s past. He’s so tortured and sad in the previous books, and I was excited to get his backstory. He and Serenity were absolutely perfect together, I love both their characters. This is a fast-paced pager turner and once you start you won’t want to stop. I really enjoyed getting to “see” the characters from the previous books as well – the epilogue is incredible, and I think I might die waiting for the next installment!
