Review: Deadlock - Moira Rogers


Abandoned by her wolf shifter father and raised by her human psychic mother, Carmen Mendoza can’t deny she’s different. She craves things most women shy away from—and she has a trail of shapeshifting ex-boyfriends to prove it.

Working at a clinic for supernatural creatures, she’s escaped the notice of her father’s legacy-obsessed family. Until they need a pawn in their bid for power. Snared by a vicious spell designed to wake her inner wolf, Carmen’s only hope is to trust the one man strong enough to soothe her darkest instincts.

Alec Jacobson was once the heir apparent to the wolves’ ruling elite, until he walked away to marry the woman he loved. She paid with her life. Now he lives as a rebel, a black-sheep alpha who protects the supernatural residents of New Orleans from the wolves’ barbaric class system. Too bad he can’t protect himself from his need for Carmen.

Yet staking his claim on his enemy’s niece will turn his city into a battleground. Unless he can find a way to stop breaking the rules—and start making them.

My thoughts:
Ever since I first met Alec I wanted this story, and now I finally got it. He was just so alpha, wounded and all that jazz. I am gonna make this into a quickie (will try at least).

Alec is being his usual self, taking care of New Orleans and at the same time not taking part in politics. In comes Carmen, sparks fly and she is the one to soothe his soul. Sparks fly, in and out of bed (when they get there).

And there is politics. Her family is making a play for a seat, and they are real bastards. Alec has some figuring out to do.

And we meet everyone from before. Now, I do want Kat's book.

There you have it, a sort of quickie review. A nice series that is not really pnr, and not really uf either.

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Hmm, an author I've not read anything of yet. I'll have to fix that one day. :) Thanks!

He'll get it too ;)

Blodeuedd said...

I waited and waited, cos he was yum yum yum

Blodeuedd said...

Yes you must, an author a day keeps the doctor away

As a big fan of the series I would suggest you girls give it a try.
I downloaded Crux (book 1) because it was a freebie and after reading it I bought the rest of the series.
Romance and action are in perfect balance so you won't get to sappy or bored with politics.
I would suggest reading it in order so you'll understand the full potential of each character, plus there is the thing with the nicknames (you'll be totally confused).
Lovely review Blodeuedd!

BookaholicCat said...

I read first book of this series and loved it, I don't know why I didn't continue reading this book... I need to fix that... soon. :)

Felicia the Geeky Blogger said...

So her family sounds like the inlaws from hell! WOWZER---:) Gotta love that sparks are flying everywhere--that is my kind of smexy :)

Jenny said...

I've been wanting to try this series, I've heard such good things about it! Also, I'm loving the sound of Alec, he's obviously a little damaged from his past and I can't help but love the wounded, tortured ones.

Audra said...

Nice quickie review -- you've got me intrigued about this series (that Alec sounds tasty!! :))

Can I start this series with this book? Or would that be too confusing?
