"This book has twists, turns and most of all, hot passion"
This is book three of the Shifter series, I highly
recommend that you read books one and two before reading
this book, each book builds on the next and therefore parts
of this review may spoil parts of the previous books. This
review will not contain spoilers for this book.
Dedrick Draeger is an Alpha Shifter Male. He is more animal
than most of the Shifter males and therefore fears getting
too close to humans. He is a dark and intensely masculine
male. He is also the head of the Draeger household and will
see to the protection of his family at all costs. Though as
Dedrick ages, his heat becomes more and more unbearable,
and he is now beginning to question whether he will find
his one true mate before the heat claims his sanity. The
heat has made Dedrick even more of a dangerous male than he
already was and there is just one female that seems to have
the ability to make his beast feel all sorts of things, a
range of emotions, from attraction to downright
exasperation that pisses him off to no end. Jaclyn Davis.
The little spitfire will just not quit baiting the beast,
but soon the beast will be unleashed and Jaclyn may get
more than she bargained for. Dedrick is about to discover
his mate, only it's a woman he doesn't want to want.
However, he discovers that Jaclyn has many things in her
painful past that could threaten her safety, including her
safety from him and the dangers his kind face.
Jaclyn Davis has had it hard, until her best friend she has
never known anyone who she truly loves; until she discovers
the family that her friend has married into. The Draeger's
are a family like Jaclyn has never known, sure they are
Shifters, but they are also quite simply a loving family.
That's a danger to a woman who needs to keep on the move,
love is a dangerous thing, especially when you find that
one member of that family can simply put, become a danger
to her heart far more than the rest. The darkest and
strongest male she's ever met, Dedrick Draeger. Only
Dedrick will have nothing to do with Jaclyn beyond trading
nasty barbs and fighting with her, which only seems to turn
her on, as well as piss her off. Danger doesn't only
threaten Shifters though, and she has to stay on the move
to make sure it doesn't threaten her once again. Jaclyn
simply will not allow her painful past to in any way
threaten the wonderful family of the Draeger's. For one man
though, she would do anything; but how long can you be
turned away before you decide to run as far away from that
pain as possible? In the end, there is likely little hope
for love or safety. So, you keep running as you always have.
I have waited for Dedrick's book for so long, ever since I
read book one and discovered this Alpha male and his
intense dark, brooding ways. This character is simply put
the Big Bad Wolf, and he's one of the most attractive
shifter characters I've read in a while. This book has
twists, turns and most of all, hot passion. It was well
worth the wait. I highly recommend Ms. Sinclair's Shifter
series, but Dedrick's Taming is, I feel, the best
book she has written to date. Congratulations to Jaden
Sinclair, this is a great book, well worth the wait. My
only complaint, I now have to wait for book four, so I hope
it's not far behind!

Dedrick Draeger is on edge. He has been the rock of the family, bearing the bunt of all responsibilities. But now the rock is starting to crumble and Dedrick is afraid for the first time in his life. Afraid of what fate has in store for him.
Dedrick has been Jaclyn Davis's fantasy come true, and ignoring the warnings she gives into her desire.
One night in his arms is all it took, but what neither of them realized is, the one night started something. Dedrick has his mate, but is Jaclyn ready for the big bad wolf?
