Book Review - Taking Nicole by Krystal Shannan

Taking Nicole (Vegas Mates, #4)

In this fourth installment of the Vegas Mates series, things really heat up! We get a closer look into the life of Sam's sister, Nicole Demakis, who is traveling to Greece to meet with the royal Antipas family, Nicole's estranged grandparents, who are busy planning Nicole's mating ceremony... against her will. 

Not one for tradition, Nicole is appalled by her grandparents' barbaric tactics in getting her to Greece, and disgusted by the idea of being mated with a total stranger, especially when she has just met her true match! And as luck would have it, he is the very one charged with making sure she gets to Greece for the ceremony! As the magick between Nicole and Aaron, a leopard shifter, heats up, the pace quickens.  

Nicole discovers her grandparents' true, sinister nature, carefully concealed behind the grandeur of the royal palace. And while she and Aaron must hide their feelings at the palace, it is becoming increasingly difficult, as each stolen moment causes their bond to intensify. But staying apart is impossible, as Aaron has been assigned to Nicole as her bodyguard! Lives are at stake, and the clock is ticking. 

Nicole's troubled family history, hinged on old traditions, continues to burden the wolf packs. The rebellion that started in Las Vegas is advancing, and others have learned of Nicole's capture. With her pack on the alert, and Aaron at her side, will it be enough to save her? 

This is the most complex story in the series, so far, with many reveals about the history of the werewolves, the originals, and the council. The book is so well written, that I never felt lost or confused. A fast paced and compelling addition to the Vegas Mates series, this is one you don't want to miss! But the books should be read in order to best understand these enchanting characters.
