Dark Wolf Returning by Rhyannon Byrd

Dark Wolf Returning 

Bloodrunners #6

When werewolf Eli Drake is banished from his pack, he leaves a devastated and heartbroken Carla Reyes behind. Three torturous years later, she tracks him down to a hole-in-the-wall Texas bar—the pack is in trouble and war is on the horizon. Carla needs Eli’s help, but wants nothing more to do with him—even though he’s as ruthless, domineering and sexy as ever.

Eli hasn’t forgotten Carla. And the partial bite he gave her their last night together has had him lying awake nights imagining her sumptuous curves and supple lips. And the scorching passion that almost consumed him that night. But Carla wants their bond broken, no matter the cost. Now, as he joins forces with Carla to save his pack, dare Eli hope that he can change her mind and claim a future he never dreamed possible?

Kathie's Review:

While there is another book (Blood Wolf Dawning) in this series, Dark Wolf Returning ties up the major story arc for the series. The bad guys need to get their comeuppance and they surely do. 

Eli hasn't wanted to return to the Pack, but Carla hunts him down and convinces him it's the right thing to do. They have a history that includes a partial bite that gives them a partial bond. Just enough to make them both crazed for the other.

All of the characters from the previous books are front and center here. Makes it feel like old home week! I always like that in a series.

What I wasn't so fond of was the, um, how can I say this politely? The c*ckblocking here was astonishing. Carla and Eli are right on the cusp of having sex...about a dozen times. Something always came up, and it wasn't in a good way. With each successive time, I started counting instead of enjoying the UST. It went way beyond UST, that's for sure. At least it was for this reader.

I did like seeing most of the threads pulled tight, and happiness for most of the inhabitants of the Alley. Book 7 is coming out on January 1, 2015. 

Thank you, NetGalley and Harlequin, for the opportunity to read this book
