He can’t cure world hunger, negotiate peace in the Middle East, or even toast bread without burning it. Yet, for some reason, Elder Layke Winters is expected to have all the answers, and it’s beyond exhausting. Everything is different with Aspen, though.
He’s different. For the first time in over a thousand years, he feels free-completely alive. Is it any wonder he’s falling fast for the bright-eyed imp?
Aspen never thought someone like Layke could want him, but once they come face-to-face, the elder awakens something wild and primal inside him. Layke is his. He’s certain of it, and he’s prepared to fight heaven and hell to keep him.
The two have almost nothing in common, though. With the odds stacked against them, and more questions than answers, especially about Aspen’s origins, will the pair ever find themselves on the right side of forever?
Primal Instincts by Gabrielle Evans is a wonderful portrayal of love and laughter in the wake of danger and the unknown. In the newest book of the Moonlight Breed series, Aspen is blessed to have found his mate in Elder Layke Winters, and as always the mates complement each other’s strengths and weaknesses.
Aspen, rescued from The Hive, along with other primary characters in the series is a mystery to himself and others, especially when a possessive streak a mile long emerges when dealing with his mate. His lack of knowledge of his past and determination as to what supernatural he is, leaves many question unanswered.
Layke Winters, an elder who had been around for many, many years, immediately falls for the wide-eyed creature and exudes ferocity in his love towards Aspen.
I adored Ms. Evans’ depiction of Aspen. He was sensitive and energetic in personality and spirit, at times lost in his own head. Ms. Evans maintained the effectiveness of a wonderful series and the melding of characters from her other novels as well. Her style of writing lends itself to her brilliant imagination and a testament to her witty mind.
The twist and turns depicted in Primal Instinct answers questions previously asked, yet opens the door for further discussion of the clutches of The Hive and the magnitude of its reach.
I am never disappointed when reading a Gabrielle Evans novel. The characters contain depth and strength of conviction and the sex is always off the chart; vivid and eloquent, sensitive and alluring.
A five handcuff review.
