All of Me by @CardenoC @dreamspinners #REVIEW
Mended 2014 Daily Dose Anthology
Bonded by their parents before they were conceived, Abel Nasa and Zakai "Kai" Berura adored each other since they were children. As teens, the two future Alphas took the next step in their bonding process and vowed to remain true to one another until Kai came of age. But when tragedy struck, Abel felt betrayed and ran from Kai instead of completing the mating bond.
Years pass with no contact between the two, but Abel never stops yearning for the man who was supposed to lead by his side. When Kai returns, broken and on death's door, Abel must look past what he saw and trust his heart so they can fulfill their destiny and merge their packs.
This is an emotion packed read from Cardeno, but lets face it she does emotions well.
Abel and Kai have been connected to each other from the beginning and on the day that they are supposed to take that last step to forever Kai betrays Abel in the worst possible way. While Abel tries to get on with his life he knows there will always be a hole in his heart for Kai. Then Kai's sister shows up asking for help and things might not be as they seemed.
This author is good at packing a lot of story in a few pages. The feelings that go through Abel when he sees Kai, and the condition he is in, is intense. He wants so badly to not care, but the pull between them is so strong. The embarrassment and self loathing that comes from Kai is heartbreaking. You will run the gamut of emotions with this read, but as always the strongest will be satisfaction!
Quick read chock full of intense passion!
RATING: 4 Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries. This book was given to us by the author. Many thanks.
