“… this was a fun, sexy read packed to the rafters full of hot alpha guys…” ~ Under the Covers
When Ellie learns that the pharmaceutical company she works for is doing illegal, not to mention immoral and cruel experimentation on people, she knows she has to do her part to stop it. She sees the men and women whose DNA have been mixed with animals creating a brand new species, and one particular subject she can’t get out of her head. She will do anything to save him, even if it means he hates her, if it means risking not only her own life but all the New Species as well if she is caught.
I got this book on a whim, and because a cover with a sexy man holding chains clearly equals the kind of book I want to read. Boy was I right, this was a fun, sexy read packed to the rafters full of hot alpha guys with potential for their own books as well as lots of growly, bitey, primal sexy times.
Ellie and Fury were great together, both sexy and sweet, once they got past a tiny misunderstanding and Fury stopped hating her. The sexual chemistry between them was fantastic, you could feel how much Fury wanted her, even when he didn’t want to. If you are like me and love shifter books where the males are possessive and alpha, especially when they are meeting their mate, then this is the type of romance you will be lapping up.
The background story about the company – Mercile – creating and experimenting on the New Species was also interesting, the first book shows you when they are all relatively new to their freedom and they are feeling their way to their new life. I loved seeing the other characters, both male and female and I can’t wait to read more about them.
I really enjoyed this book and it is a good beginning to the series and I will definitely be continuing to read, if you are after something a little sexy and easy to read, then give this Fury a try.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
