- Book 8 of Talon Pack
In the penultimate novel of the Talon Pack series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan, an Enforcer must make the ultimate choice when it comes to a human woman with a secret she doesn't know she holds.
Kameron Brentwood has only one thing on his mind: defeating the enemy. He doesn't have time for a human woman who sets his teeth on edge and makes his wolf prowl. It shouldn't matter that she's his mate because he's always thought that mating is a distraction. Yet as soon as he gets to know the woman, he figures out that there's no hiding from the attraction he feels for her.
Dhanielle Coburn has always been on the outside looking in when it comes to the Talon Pack, but she's not about to let fate and the moon goddess decide her path for her. If and when she takes Kameron as a mate, it will be her choice. Yet when she suddenly finds herself in the Pack's inner sanctum, deeper than she ever thought possible, she has to fight not only her need for the man in front of her but also a hidden secret about her family she didn't even know she had.
When the choice is pulled from both of their hands, the two will need to learn who they are apart, and who they can be together. Because there's more to mating than a mark and a prophecy that has come back to haunt them. And even though they may be fated, the ultimate sacrifice just might take them both in the end.

As Talon Pack's Enforcer, Kameron Brentwood needs to stay 100% focused. He can't allow the delectable scent of the human Dhanielle Coburn alter his concentration from ensuring the safety of his pack. Yes, Dhani might technically be his mate, but he doesn't HAVE to act on it. Besides, she's not totally sure about him either. When a rival pack makes a power play by manipulating humans, Kameron and Dhani make the decision to mate…for show only. There won't be any love involved. Aren't those called 'famous last words?'
I can't say I'm a Talon Pack series superfan, since I've only read a few offerings and I'm not a huge paranormal romance lover either, but I did somewhat enjoy STRENGTH ENDURING. I did not love it. There just wasn't much chemistry happening between Kameron and Dhani, in fact they didn't even really speak for a good portion of the novel. Additionally, the whole "I can't be with you because you won't be safe" is a tired trope for me, and even though Kameron loosens up after awhile, the entire first half of the book was that back and forth. As a fan of most of what Ms. Ryan releases, I have no doubt that lovers of this series will go nuts on this one, but for me, it was just a so so read.
Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; no condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; paranormal violence/murder.
