This book is Beyond Wonderful. As a huge fan of the series, I believe Tangle of Needs does a wonderful job of giving readers more information on the mating bond and a great in-depth look at life with the Snow Dancers.
Riaz doesn’t know why Adria seems to have a chip on her shoulder concerning him. As two key wolves in the pack, he would think they have a lot in common. Instead Adria makes him feel less and he knows that is not normal nor the way many treat a Snow Dancer Lieutenant. What Riaz doesn’t realize is that Adria is coming out of a bad relationship with a longtime boyfriend and is leery of her inner wolfs attraction to Riaz. His reputation as a loner makes her guarded and once burned is twice shy in her book. I love how Singh explores the boundaries of the relationship between the hero and heroine. We are able to watch both struggle with their desire for one another and falling in love isn’t always as easy as it seems. Both characters have a history that plays havoc with their emotions and readers will enjoy watching how these two deal with it. Adria is a strong wolf but Riaz is the perfect match for her.
Most of the story takes place at the Snow Dancers strong hold and there is a lot more intrigue with the Psy that shows Nalini bringing the story arc almost to its peak. This is definitely worth the read and a re-read.
Discover the exhilarating risks of passion in the breathtaking new Psy-Changeling novel by Nalini Singh, the New York Times bestselling "alpha author of paranormal romance" (Booklist).
Adria, wolf changeling and resilient soldier, has made a break with the past--one as unpredictable in love as it was in war. Now comes a new territory, and a devastating new complication: Riaz, a SnowDancer lieutenant already sworn to a desperate woman who belongs to another.
For Riaz, the primal attraction he feels for Adria is a staggering betrayal. For Adria, his dangerous lone-wolf appeal is beyond sexual. It consumes her. It terrifies her. It threatens to undermine everything she has built of her new life. But fighting their wild compulsion toward one another proves a losing battle.
Their coming together is an inferno...and a melding of two wounded souls who promise each other no commitment, no ties, no bonds. Only pleasure. Too late, they realize that they have more to lose than they ever imagined. Drawn into a cataclysmic Psy war that may alter the fate of the world itself, they must make a decision that might just break them both.
