Tempting the Enemy Dee Tenorio

Tempting the Enemy by Dee Tenorio
* I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Synopsis:

Detective Pale Rysen, an Alpha, is determined to secretly rebuild the Wolf packs from the ashes of genocide. When a killer starts picking off young females looking for sanctuary, it’s his job to protect them. Forced to work with a hated enemy, he fears his cover will be blown.
Jade-Scarlet’s membership in the powerful Order of the Sibile has always been controversial. A half-wolf, Jade’s unstable psychic powers are a disappointment to her mercenary handlers. So when the Oracle commands her to work with Pale, Jade must prove herself…even if it means challenging the enigmatic shifter.
Yet Pale triggers more than her curiosity. He sends her into Heat, and the intense sexual attraction could mean losing control of her gifts-something she can’t allow. As the number of victims rises, so does the danger. A murderous darkness wants them both dead. But even if they stop the killer, how long can they fight each other?

Tempting the enemy by Dee Tenorio was a smart, sexy book.  Even with the intrigue of the Woodsman killings, the scenes between Pale and Jade were HOT!

The police department called in a Sibile to help them solve the Woodsman killings.  Pale is not comfortable with this decision but has resigned himself to work with her, until he realizes that she is also an unmated wolf in heat.   This fact adds to the danger Jade will face.

Jade has been commanded to help the police find out who the Woodsman is.  She feels the heat flair the minute she spots Pale but knows that she can’t give in or her gifts will be uncontrollable.  She is drawn to him though and she can’t help it.

Throughout the story not only are they trying to find out who is killing these women but they are also trying to keep her safe from the unmated wolves.  At one point, Pale has to fight several wolves at once to save her.

The scenes between Pale and Jade are well written.  I love the fact that he wants her but knows that she is not ready so he takes his time with her.  There are several teaser scenes that lead to the ultimate end where she gives herself to him.

I loved the build up and suspense of this story.  There are several stories going on at once and all are equally important.  The Woodsman is killing women and leaving their limbs stacked like firewood around town, now he is also killing wolves trying to reach sanctuary.  You have the heat between Pale and Jade building up and there is also the story behind the Sibile.

I loved this book and couldn’t put it down.  The ending surprised me and left me hoping that this is only the first book in a new series.  It was written where a sequel is possible.  I want to know what the future will bring to the Sibile and if Jalla’s prophecy comes true.   I also want to know what the future holds for Pale and Jade.

I give this book 4 Flaming Hearts.
