One Insatiable (Woodland Creek) by Tia Louise [REVIEW]

Mercy Quinlan is a whip-smart lynx and the youngest in her shifter clan. She's tough and independent and dreams of escaping her alpha sister's control and living life on her own terms.

When a lone black panther shows up in her hometown, Mercy is intrigued. He's just passing through, which makes him perfect... Along with his broad shoulders, defined muscles, and sexy fighter moves.

Koa "Stitch" Raiden is picking up what's left of his broken life. Exiled from his black panther clan, he's running from Princeton to Seattle when he's drawn to Woodland Creek.

He's aware Mercy is watching him. What he doesn't know is the sexy little vixen who sneaks through his window each night is both the trouble he doesn't need and the hope he can't live without.

4 Alpha Shifter Stars
One Insatiable is a standalone and is part of the Woodland Creek series. I adore Tia Louise, she writes steamy reads that keeps any reader interested. This is my second book of hers in the paranormal theme. The first was vampires and now its shifters. You know I love my paranormal romances so I had high expectations.

What I liked first off was that Mercy, the Heroine, and Koa, the Hero, were already shifters. We did have this odd transition phase where they had to figure out what’s going on. I like that both of them were established shifters and I loved that Mercy was part of a family, a dysfunctional one, but a family regardless.

Mercy is a strong girl, she is a female alpha and her life is predetermined. She is just made aware of this and she is having none of it. I kind of like this, even though she’s strong, it feels like she’s a bit of a damsel in need of a Hero.

Koa is not any shifter, but a panther. His coat matches his skin and when he sees Mercy for the first time, it’s pure lust. Usually when I read shifter books, the Hero wants to be mated to the Heroine, but in Koa and Mercy’s story, it’s more lust. I liked that the steam is brought to the beginning. Eventually we get to the romance and Koa and Mercy start to have feelings for each other.

 But Mercy’s family isn’t having any of it and does everything they can to make Mercy fulfill her destiny. One Insatiable is a steamy paranormal read. If you like Tia Louise’s previous books and love shifters, then you will not be disappointed. There’s plenty of tension, lust and love to keep you interested.

I’m trapped beneath him, tears filling my eyes, uncertain what all of this means or what happens now. He saw what I am, but he didn’t pull away. He held me down, watching me writhe in agony and desire, as if he knew what was coming.
Oh, god. A wave of dread tightens my stomach at the thought. He knew what was coming. He knows what I am.
His head is down on his forearm, but he’s still inside me. I wait until he finally lifts it, again looking straight into my eyes. He’s so beautifully mouth-watering. Sweat mingles with the rain on his cheek, and a little drop runs down into his beard.
Without having to see, I know my eyes darken. A whimper escapes my chest as the irresistible hunger burns in my throat.
His brow lowers. “You want to drink me?”
My eyes squeeze closed as a flood of fresh tears fills them, spilling out of the corners and down my cheeks. I take a shuddering breath, unable to deny the truth.
“Can you control it?” His voice has changed. The anger is replaced by curiosity.
Opening my eyes slowly, I study his expression, still stern, trying to understand. I don’t answer. I only watch him, my hunger aching in my gums.
His steel eyes hold mine with such determination. “Do what you have to do, but only for a moment.”
I’m confused by his permission, but I’m too weak to resist him. His grip on my wrists relaxes, and I slowly lift my hands to his broad, muscled shoulders, holding his eyes with mine as I carefully rise to lick the little bead of sweat off his cheek.
A noise rumbles in his throat, and inside me his erection returns. My breath picks up as the flavor of him spreads through my mouth. Rising higher, I press my nose against his heated skin, inhaling fresh rainwater mixed with his delicious woodsy man-scent.
I’m on fire. My moan is matched by his low growl as I trace my tongue along the line of his jaw to the ridge of muscle in his neck. I’m acting by instinct, grazing my razor-sharp teeth lightly across his skin, touching him gently with my tongue. His hips begin to move, thrusting again, and I feel the muscles in his shoulders tightening as his orgasm builds.
At last I’ve found it—the place from before, the little pin pricks. Like before, it’s so easy, a knife in warm butter. I penetrate him, and the hot, thick warmth of his life spills into my mouth.
Instantly, we’re plunged into that orgasmic plane, tumbling down the rabbit hole, lost in a whirlpool of giving and taking inexorable ecstasy.
“Fuck!” He groans as he comes inside me, pulsing long and hard, over and over.
My eyes are closed, my mouth attached firmly to his skin as I drown in the tsunami of pleasure, life flowing into me from all sides.
It’s harder to stop this time. I want more of him, more and more of this. He seems unable to pull away as well. He’s still in me, throbbing and gripping my hips so hard, I think they’ll break.
I might have kept going. I might have… but a beacon of light cuts through the quick thud of his heart beating strong in his chest.
STOP! The voice I recognize as mine echoes through my transformed state. It reminds me what I want. I want this man to live. I don’t want to drain his life and doom myself to living alone as a monster. I want to live with him in the light.
It takes all the strength I possess to pull out. I break my seal with a moan of regret, licking my lips to be sure none of him is wasted.
Dropping my head back onto the bed, I close my eyes to savor the sensation of him swirling inside me. Derek… so strong… my fighter… my hunter…
Only like before, the strange, foreign element is back. It burns longer this time before ultimately disappearing into my bloodstream.
It’s not him. It’s something else. What have you done, my hunter?
