The chemistry and sexual energy when she meets Riley again is palatable
"He captivated me and  wrapped my mind in a cloudy haze of arousal"~Paige  
After Riley spots her in the only grocery store in town he is immediately transfixed, just like 10 years ago he is complete taken by the young beauty in front of him.
And just like 10 years ago Riley is unable to keep away from her and climbs into her window that night to sleep next to her.

When she finds out her saver is an actual  werewolf will she run or embrace the love he offers her?!?
"I had grown to Love him as his human form, but now, I had to love his wolf form the same way"~Paige 
"Riley was my soul mate, and I intended to let him mark me, so we could seal our bond."~Paige
Will the pack leader allow a human to join?!?
Riley is just so sweet and lovable he is real with his feelings and wears his heart on his sleeve.
"She agreed to play in the mud with me, if I agree to let her dress me up like a girl. She use to make me braid her hair."~Riley 
He is determined to make Paige his mate and nothing or no one will get in his way he has loved her for so long and his heart has longed foe her more than words can say.
"Divorce didn't exist in the varulv society. They believe in commitment in every sense of the word."
I really enjoyed this book. Riley and his family are English and that was done very  well I felt it was genuine British English. 
The story had a lot of different thing going on but I felt it was a little rushed it places and  the ending needed more.
Overall a good steamy story with a deliciously hot werewolf.
