Having turned his back on his snow leopard pride, Cavanaugh has been counting the days until he’s free of a role he never wanted—one that separated him from his fated female and stands between him and the future he craves with her.
Just days from the night he will finally be free to be with the low-ranking beauty who stole his heart, she walks back into his life and threatens to destroy everything he’s worked towards in the five long years they’ve been apart.
Eloise has traveled across continents searching for the male who was once her best friend and so much more to her, but was now her pride’s true alpha. Desperate to fulfil a promise to her kin to save them from the tyrant he left in charge, she convinces Cavanaugh to return to his pride, but as they journey to Bhutan, doubts bloom and old feelings resurface, tearing her between duty and her deepest desires and impossible dreams.
Will Eloise be able to resist the burning need that Cavanaugh reignites in her and remember her place in the pride? And can Cavanaugh find a way to save his kin and claim the future he craves with the woman he loves?
Craved by an Alpha is Felicity Heaton‘s fifth book in her Eternal Mates series. The focus in Craved by an Alpha is on Cavanaugh, whom we have met briefly, in a few of the other titles.
This is probably one of the hardest reviews I have done in quite some time. I am absolutely in love with the world building in the Eternal Mates series, as well as the characters. Craved by an Alpha just didn’t hold up. The lack of dialog and chapters of internal thoughts was just too much for me. I even attempted to skip to the last couple of chapter and found that I just couldn’t find it in me to care.
Part of me just did not believe and will never accept that a complete passive and submissive women could ever retain a healthy relationship with a true alpha. Especially, as Heaton has created a very high standard of what defines alpha in this series. Maybe my job has jaded me. Maybe the reality that these two personalities can never truly be happy together is something I see every day, but I just couldn’t get into being passionate about their relationship.
This title was a DNF. Although I read most of the first half and part of the ending, I am considering it a Did Not Finish title. I will still continue this series, and have actually finished book 6. I will go ahead and announce that I am glad I continued this series. It was a pleasure to read. =)
I rate Craved by an Alpha 2 out of 5 Bullets.
