How do you tell yourself not to breathe?
He is my mate, and she is his everything. But he chose her, against every single instinct that we both know. For that, I have been whipped, shunned, shamed, disgraced, and broken. All for one moment of madness I could not control...
After two years, I left, unable to bear the pain and loneliness anymore. That was then. This is now!
I am back, and I am not the juvenile I was. I am now a full grown female. I feel his eyes on me, but I can’t. I won’t. I shouldn’t!
Time has healed my wounds, but not the deep scars the whip seared into my flesh or his indifference to my heart. Each breath is a pain, and his scent overwhelms me. But I can smell her in it. He still will not give her up, despite his own body crawling with a deep, physical desire, that only a mate can satisfy...
I breathe: I exist; barely!I am a midwife. I bring life into a cruel world that haunts me every day, and the Doctor I work with, is the only one in this pack, who holds faith in me. He is the one person who stands up for me - and I feel light again, when I am with him...
What kind of life is this when two mates cannot be together, yet every part of their primal soul yearns for it infinitely? What kind of cruel moon would torture a she-wolf like this? I can’t go on, but I must!
Whatever happens, I must attend to my purpose and give my miserable life some meaning; perhaps I can snatch some joy in pieces, but now, I see that he needs me - but he also wants her too!
How do you tell yourself not to breathe? THREE BOUNDLESS STARS
I stumbled upon this book, and I’m glad I did. This isn’t the genre I usually read. But something drew me to this book. Once I read the sample, I knew I had to know more. Rya is part of a pack of wolves. As a teenager, she learns who her mate is. Only to be rejected, by the one she’s meant to be with. Not only rejected but shunned by the whole pack. She leads a lonely life, one I can’t believe she was able to get through. I just felt her loneliness and that heartache that just tore at her every day. One point she able to get away and go to school. Putting distance between the mate she wants, who wants nothing to do with her. Until she is called home. I have mixed feelings about this story. It was enjoyable and did make me feel that ache in my chest. As the story went on, I would get lost in some parts. She would be doing something, and then all of a sudden were in another scene. Also, when she is switched to being her wolf. It’s in third person like they weren’t part of each other. I think it threw me off a bit. But it was a good story, with lots and lots of drama. Overall, I’m giving this Three Boundless Stars
