In this ever-changing world, you must hunt or be hunted.

Dreams will be crushed.

Secrets will be exposed.
When Cole is once again faced with losing Lexi at the hands of a monster, one encounter will change everything.

REVIEW:

 

Hunted was jaw dropping and amazing to say the least. It was fast paced, had the right amount of action, mixed in some sexy times with Cole and Lexie, yet still managed to break my heart. In my opinion, Hunted was a step up from Branded. The writing was better, and it somehow was even more suspenseful then Branded, which I didn’t think was possible.

Cole continues to be an absolutely amazing guy. He is just such a hottie. Hunted really dives into exploring more of the amazing characters of Lexie, Cole, Bruno and Grace. Lexie is so tough and she never gives up what she believes in. Plus, Lexie continues to be such a realistic character and goes through substantial development. Of course, we have Zeus, the amazing dog companion who everyone loves. I’ve yet to talk to anyone who’s read Branded and Hunted who doesn’t like Zeus. (And how could you not like him, he’s an adorable, overly-protective dog for crying out loud!) But back to Cole and Lexie, not only are they dealing with their own struggles they have to deal with so much craziness around them and live in such a terrifying world.

The ENDING though. After breaking your heart, and leaving you swooning, Hunted still manages to end on an extremely high note that will leave you guessing. I cannot wait for Liberated! (I don’t even know how I’m going to survive the wait though…)
