Hunger's Mate Part 3 by A.C. Arthur

Hunger's Mate Part 3
Hunger's Mate Part 3 by A.C. Arthur

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

You’re a bad, bad woman Ms. Arthur. The first sentence of this installment of Hunger’s Mate put me into a tailspin of emotions – relief that Jewel had gotten to her father, sadness because it meant she left Ezra, happiness that Jewel’s father was safe. But none of that compared to the fear I felt when the phone call was made. Fear that only increased when Jewel’s father confirmed that he was now in Larry’s clutches. But apparently the author felt as if she hadn’t wrenched enough emotion out of me and continued to run me through the gauntlet with Hunger’s Mate Part 3.

In the third installment, Ezra finally confronts Jewel about Larry and while she still does not tell him everything, she reveals a lot. Color me surprised to realize that she went to Perryville because she knew about the Shadow Shifters – granted, I probably should have picked up on that from the Prologue in part one, but I didn’t. Even though she still refuses to tell Ezra the details of her time with Larry, Jewel’s behaviors when they have sex – and oh god, yes they do again and it’s even hotter this time around – go a long way in letting Ezra know that Jewel was completely powerless in that relationship. I love the lengths to which Ezra is willing to go to make Jewel feel safe during their sexual interactions, especially when they are often in opposition to his alpha male and animal instincts. But seriously, that man’s gotta put a bell on his woman because she takes off yet again. At least this time he knows where she’s headed and he sets off after her, intending to save her and her father, and to finally claim his mate (YES!!!). And what, pray tell, action-packed, nail-biting scene does Ms. Arthur leave us suspended on … Ezra vs. ADAM!!! Reading schedule be damned. I’m off to Hunger’s Mate Part 4 as I MUST know how their story ends.

I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
