Title : Thomas Book 4
Series : Le Beau Brothers
Gene: Paranormal Romance
Author: V.A. Dold
Julia is happy with her place in the shifter community as the owner of the famous shifter bar, The Backwater. But the life she’s created for herself isn’t enough to satisfy her crazy-ass mother, Lucinda, who shops her and her sister Krystal around to the pure blood shifters like a piece of meat. Only a born shifter mate is good enough for her girls.
Thomas James has his hands full as the shifter king’s head of security. He certainly wasn’t looking for a girlfriend during the first annual shifter gathering. He had the king and queen to protect, not skirts to chase.
A childhood of emotional and physical abuse by his birth father has left Thomas emotionally unavailable and uninterested in romantic relationships. His father Tim’s cruelty to his mother and brother molded him into an extremely protective person. No one messes with his loved ones without answering to him.
Even though Julia and Thomas are destined to be mates. The obstacles standing between them and their happy ever after seem insurmountable.
Lucinda insists Julia stay away from the filthy human.
Tim is trying to kill everyone Thomas loves.
The mysterious Benevolent Sovereign who is trying to over through the throne, has sent swampers attack Thomas and destroy Julia’s lively hood.
With family like theirs, who needs enemies?
Will Julia and Thomas’s happiness be snuffed out before it has a chance to begin or will they forge through – obstacles be damned.
Thomas is part of the La Beau Bother’s series that I have fallen head over heels for this series. I’m not one that will normally pick up a paranormal romance, but when I was first offered to read Cade for an honest review I figured why not. Now I can’t stay away from the series.
You are taken in to a real place with real events that happened but they have twist to them. Julia a bar owner who is happy where she is in life, she also happens to be a wolf shifter. Her mom not so happy she wants her daughters to find their mates and is doing everything she can to make that happen. Thomas is the son of Ann who is married to Cade. Thomas has come to live with the family and is now head of security for his grandfather who is King of the shifter wolfs. Thomas is not looking for a relationship as far as he is concerned they don’t exist. Growing up with an abusive father has given him this mind set, that is till Julia walks in his life and knocks him on his butt.
I have enjoyed every book in this series. You are pulled in and held with baited suspense. Thomas story is told with different points of views, which I always enjoy getting a glimpse in to the other persons thoughts. I loved Julia’s personality she is one that loves all and gives everything she can to help others. Thomas is a protector by nature, willing to fight for those he loves. You bring these two together and they fly off the page at you. You want nothing more than to see them together.
Thomas is a 5 star book.
