Review: Darkest Temptation by Rachel Van Dyken

I'm a werewolf King who chose to step down out of grief for my mate.
For centuries I've been alone, choosing to live a life of modesty despite the wealth surrounding me.
I deserve to be punished.
I crave things I have no business craving.
And it is manifesting itself in a way I'm terrified I won't be able to control any longer.
Especially since she arrived.
Vampire. Orphan. Beaten beyond recognition.
My blood calls to her in a way that makes no sense.
I'm a wolf.
She's a vampire.
The two don't mate.
They barely tolerate one another.
All it takes is one slip of control on my part — one taste.
And I doom us all.
Then again, I never knew what is lurking inside has the power to balance good and evil.

Review:  4.25 of 5 Stars

I fell in love with the Dark Ones Saga and in particularly Mason from the first book.  He has always been my favorite character because of his complexities. He is a wolf that deprives himself of anything good because of the guilt he feels over losing his first mate.  He has such a complicated and wonderful backstory and I just knew that I would love reading about it.

Serenity is a vampire that has never really been a good vampire. She feels like a failure at everything and is all alone.  So why is it the one person that makes her feel more alive than anyone happens to be a wolf?  Vampires + Wolves are never a good combination, but something is different about Mason.  

I absolutely loved this book from start to finish.  I love the relationship that Serenity and Mason have and how it has to come full circle.  But mostly, I love that Mason got the story he deserved.  My only complaint if you will, is that this story is fast paced and I found myself having to re-read parts of it to fully understand what was happening.  The Dark Ones Saga is a wonderful series, but I think I would have enjoyed this book even more if I had a refresher course prior to reading it.  As always though, fantastic read from Rachel Van Dyken.
