Review: Darkest Temptation by Rachel Van Dyken


I’m a werewolf King who chose to step down out of grief for my mate.For centuries I’ve been alone, choosing to live a life of modesty despite the wealth surrounding me.
I deserve to be punished.
I crave things I have no business craving.
And it is manifesting itself in a way I’m terrified I won’t be able to control any longer.
Especially since she arrived.
Vampire. Orphan. Beaten beyond recognition.
My blood calls to her in a way that makes no sense.
I’m a wolf.
She’s a vampire.
The two don’t mate.
They barely tolerate one another.
All it takes is one slip of control on my part — one taste.
And I doom us all.
Then again, I never knew what is lurking inside has the power to balance good and evil.review4-starsI’ve been waiting so long for this. Mason has been a total sweetheart in the past books. I’m glad to report that he remained that way in Darkest Temptation. Rachel made Mason’s story special.

Serenity has never felt like she was enough. Her parents chose death over staying with her. She’s always been alone. Mason has never been able to get over his mate, so when he sees Serenity, he’s terrified. He doesn’t want to betray his feelings for his previous mate, and he just doesn’t want to feel loss ever again.

I must say that I didn’t expect to get so few details about Mason’s past mate. I don’t really know anything about her. She was mentioned a lot, but there were never any details about her. I don’t even know her name, or if her name was even mentioned. Oh well.

I thought this might be the last book in the series, but judging by that ending, it looks like I’m wrong.
