Forever: The Dragon Wars
by Rebecca Royce
Devin Owen has come back from the Dragon Wars a changed Werewolf. For one thing, he's lost his wolf side as well as most of his desire to live. He spends most of his life doped up to handle the pain from his injured leg.
Lena Knox knew the moment she met Devin that he was her mate. But, she'd been a child at the time and he hadn't noticed her at all. Now, all grown up she wants Devin to be the wolf she’s waited for. Not that she has a lot of time for longing with life crumbling around her.
A couple of heated encounters draw them together but is it enough to overcome the war wounds they both carry? Or will an outside enemy destroy them before they get the chance to know?
Devin Owens was a prisoner in the Dragon Wars. He is free now but can't shift into his wolf form. He is a broken man who lives on painkillers and has no drive. That soon changes when Lena Knox disturbs his rest. He soon begins to fix things around her house even while fighting his attraction to her. She claims he is her mate something she realized when she was 7 years old. Now years later she wants to claim him but he denies he is her mate. He knows she deserves better but it may take an enemy to make him see what is in front of him.
Devin at first seems a broken week person who has given up. As the story progresses he becomes stronger and begins to let go of feeling worthless. I would love to see more of him. Lena is a straight forward woman who goes after what she wants. She is a hard worker trying to keep her family going even while it is falling apart. She is so awesome she tries her best to show Devin they belong together.
This is a quick good read. I love reading about Devin and Lena. They have a great story and I kept hoping they would be together. When they are together they are a very hot pair. The only thing I didn't like about this story is it is short. I wanted more of it! Luckily it is a series and I look forward to reading more about this thrilling world. You only get glimpes into the war and I hope we get to find out more about it. A great fight scene is in this book and you really get to see the power of shifters. This is a great story for someone looking for a good paranormal romance series that leaves you wanting more!
One lone tear escaped, and she quickly batted it away. She might as not have, as he’d be able to smell her distress. Trying to be as sly as she could, she glanced over at Devin, hoping he wouldn’t notice. He stared up at the ceiling, his gaze distant and removed.
She cleared her throat. “Would you like to shift and go for a run?”
Lena couldn’t think of anything she’d like better than to escape this room. He’d brought her utter and complete pleasure and then shattered her soul.
Devin rolled over, his back facing her, his head turned away. “You go ahead. I can’t shift anymore. Haven’t been able to since I came back.”
He couldn’t shift? A strange buzzing sensation filled her mind. This was important. It had to matter that Devin had been disconnected from his Wolf.
“That’s why you can’t heal your leg? You can’t shift to fix it?”
He turned to look at her, his eyes tired. “It’s pretty disgusting, I know. Trust me, no one likes looking at it less than I do. Twisted flesh, the bone poking out from where it should be—yeah, it’s gross.”
Lena wasn’t exactly certain what was going on, but she’d somehow stepped into a minefield. She hoped she could find her way out. Fast.
“I didn’t say it was gross. I just asked if that was why it wasn’t fixed.” She rubbed her eyes. “What do the doctors say about why you can’t shift?”
“Nothing. They have nothing to say.”
