Mini Me: Kiss of Snow by Nalini Singh

Since the moment of her defection from the PsyNet and into the SnowDancer wolf pack, Sienna Lauren has had one weakness. Hawke. Alpha and dangerous, he compels her to madness.

Hawke is used to walking alone, having lost the woman who would've been his mate long ago. But Sienna fascinates the primal heart of him, even as he tells himself she is far too young to handle the wild fury of the wolf.

Then Sienna changes the rules and suddenly, there is no more distance, only the most intimate of battles between two people who were never meant to meet. Yet as they strip away each other's secrets in a storm of raw emotion, they must also ready themselves for a far more vicious fight…

A deadly enemy is out to destroy SnowDancer, striking at everything they hold dear, but it is Sienna's darkest secret that may yet savage the pack that is her home…and the alpha who is its heartbeat…

Yes this book is amazing. I may have not have broken down into tears of joy at the ending, but I don't think we can blame Nalini Singh for that. The truth of the matter is that if I could have gotten to one of her signings in 3hrs or less I would have made the trip - AND nagged by BFF until she agreed to go with me. 

Hawke's fantastically alpha - that wonderful mix of protective and sensitive that Singh's created. It's like she looked into the secret fantasies of millions of women and created the perfect hero who loves babies. 

It's that irresistible. If they weren't already in animal form half the time I'd say the only thing that was missing was a dog. But they have that too! It's really no wonder that I love them.

The only itsy bitsy minor little thing I can say that took me aback for a minute was how 'young' Sienna seemed sometimes. Yes I guess I got caught up in thinking she was extra mature because of her powers and how she was brought up because of them, but I'm just saying. I was surprised when some of her emotional concerns and lack of experience reminded me of how actually 'young' she was in years. That could legitimately be a fault of my own though, so let's just keep things real.

Buy the series, borrow the series, whatever - READ the series.
