Lure of Oblivion by Suzanne Wright

Lure of Oblivion

Gwen Miller may be a human, but she has no problem taking a stand against her own kind. She’s going to testify against the teenage boy she saw viciously assault a lone shifter female—and no amount of pressure from the boy’s wealthy family will make her back down. But when the harassment turns violent, help comes in the form of a lean, toned wolf with winter-gray eyes.As a...

    Lure of Oblivion was a good solid read for me. I would expect no less of Suzanne Wright. She is one of my favorite authors and her books always hit the good spot. I will say that though I enjoyed this read something kept it from being a 5 star read for me. I honestly can't put a finger on what kept this read from wowing me but something was missing for me.

    Lure of Oblivion was a good solid read for me. I would expect no less of Suzanne Wright. She is one of my favorite authors and her books always hit the good spot. I will say that though I enjoyed this read something kept it from being a 5 star read for me. I honestly can't put a finger on what kept this read from wowing me but something was missing for me. I loved Gwen. I thought she was totally bad ass for a human. I liked Zander a lot. I didn't love him but I really liked him. I think I was a little put off that he was kind of standoffish to Gwen at the start. However when Gwen and Zander got together their passion was burning up my kindle. SW writes great sex in her books. I enjoyed the plot as well. I started this book and it kept me entertained the whole time. Lure of oblivion was a great addition to the Mercury Pack series and I can't wait to read the next book.

    I can honestly say Suzanne Wright is my favorite PNR author, and every time one of her releases is imminent I get giddy with excitement, and this was no exception!

    I can honestly say Suzanne Wright is my favorite PNR author, and every time one of her releases is imminent I get giddy with excitement, and this was no exception!

    Lure of Oblivion, Zander and Gwen’s story is the third of The Mercury Pack and my favorite so far!

    Both main characters were fantastic and totally kickass, and it was amazing to see some of the rest of the gang. The change of setting was bittersweet since though it gave us a fresh view and awesome new characters, of course we couldn't get the full on experience of the Mercury pack in their land. I did love this new fresh take that Suzanne Wright gave us in this story, and specially that Gwen is a human! I've been so looking forward to a shifter/human pairing, so maybe it's one of the reasons for which it became my fav of this series.

    LMAO! Nobody, and I mean nobody does this type of snarky, witty humor like Ms. Wright! I mean, it takes one to know one, right?! How could I not be completely in love with Gwen – as usual with SW’s heroines – and all her sarcastic and teasing splendor?! And Zander… Oh Lordy, was that wolfy HOT!!! And for someone who claims to be so aloof and apathetic to others (outside of his pack), he sure does shows us a different and how caring, loving and POSSESSIVE he is towards Gwen from the very start. Oh, and OTT sexy, how could I for get that?! Zander was ‘ovary imploding’ hot!

    Suzanne Wright has once again created true PNR beauty, and given us EVERYTHING in Lure of Oblivion: funny, emotional, thrilling, sexy, steamy and loving endless moments that are keep getting us more and more addicted to her stories and all these characters. And the new countdown start till the new SW brilliancy, and I can’t wait!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

    She was more. She was everything.

    You’re already mine, and I’m already yours. Nothing will change that. Not a thing. I wanted you for keeps before I realized we were mates. I am keeping you, no matter what.”

    That said, this was not my favorite book in this series. In fact, it might actually be my least favorite to date. But, considering my "least favorite" is still weighing in at a solid 3-3.5, that's okay by me.

    They can't ALL be winners. Cause then there would BE no winners.

    Think about it.

    Anyexistential.

    I'm not sure exactly what I didn't love about this one.

    I guess I just found Gwen and her...situation to be a tad boring.

    Or maybe I'm just a shifterist and the fact that she was human failed to blow my mind.

    Who knows.

    Maybe I will enjoy this more the second time around.

    I do have a LOT going on at home right now and I find myself somewhat distracted when reading lately. GASP!

    I know, I know, crazy, right?

    But that's an indication of how many balls I have up in the air right now.

    Some are bound to drop.

    Fans of the series will still enjoy this book, although in my opinion, perhaps not as much as others in the series. Regardless, still worth the read.

The Mercury Pack is a spin-off of the Phoenix Pack and both packs are full of alpha male shifters and their sassy shifter mates.

    is the third book in the Mercury Pack. Although this is the third book in the series, it can be read as a stand-alone.

With each book release, I become more entranced by this world and believe me when I say I will never get enough.

    Gwen Miller is a human who has been thrust into a deadly battle. By trying to protect a shifter who was brutally attacked, she has put herself and her family in danger. When enforcer Zander Devlin checks into the inn where Gwen works, he is instantly drawn to her. Although it is rare for a shifter and a human to mate, it is possible. As Zander and Gwen grow closer, the battle between the "shifter hating humans" and the shifters continues to escalate. Gwen is in danger and Zander will do whatever it takes to keep her safe and make her his forever!

    Told in dual POV,

    is another winning shifter read with passion, romance, action, and suspense. Ms. Wright has created a fantastical world full of complex characters living under intense circumstances. I found the human/shifter mating twist to be quite unique and as always with this series, once I started reading, I COULD NOT STOP!

    Overall, I highly recommend

    to all of my paranormal romance friends! This is one world where I will never get enough!

    So when I saw this baby on Netgalley, I jumped on it :P

    Now all these books center around a different couple, so technically they could be read as a stand alone. I would advice everyone to read this series, and the Phoenix Pack series, in order though.

    I am so glad I did, because I really enjoyed it. Now I have to be honest here and say that I was hoping for Trick or Dominic's story to be next, but I found out they are next in line ;) Doesn't really matter anyways, because all these Alpha boys are fine !!!

    This time we got Zander and Gwen's story.. the first shifter/human couple of both series !

    Zander is an enforcer for The Phoenix pack. He is the quiet broody type and I am happy to say that, unlike many of his packmates, he isn't a real big manwhore. This is mostly, because his wolf doesn't really appreciate female attention. So no crazy ex hookups in this one !!!

    Zander's uncle recently died and Zander has to be present for the reading of the will. This is what brings him to a small and "haunted" little B&B where Gwen works.

    Gwen was a pretty awesome heroine. Now I like most heroines in this series, because most of them are pretty kickass, but I really liked Gwen. She may have been human, but she was seriously badass and she could definitely hold her own !!

    Gwen is having some trouble though. Ever since she went to bat for a shifter, who was being abused by a bunch of humans, she has been the target of some serious harressment herself. This doesn't mean she is giving up though...it only makes her more determined to testify against them.

    Zander can't help but be drawn to this fierceful woman, even if she makes his wolf go into some kind of hide-out. All he has to do is win her trust...easy right ;)

    I loved how protective Zander was of Gwen, but I loved it even more, how Gwen stood up for herself. These two were extremely HOT, though I wasn't suprised by this, since Suzanne really knows how to write steamy scenes.

    There was plenty of action to keep me entertained and I finished this book in one go.

    I am not going into the story more than this, since I don't want to spoiler the book for anyone. I think this was wonderful addition to the series, and Gwen is definitely one of my favorite heroines in this and the Phoenix pack series.

    You guys know I'm a big fan of Suzanne Wright and all her previous books that I've read were really good. Especially the Dark in You series. I truly love those. So when I started reading this book I had quite high hopes for it. Now, I wouldn't say it's a bad story but I also wouldn't say it blew me away. It's kinda in the middle. At times I felt bored but then again, there were moments where I really got into the story and the characters. I adored Gwen, she so to say saved this story fo

At times I felt bored but then again, there were moments where I really got into the story and the characters. I adored Gwen, she so to say saved this story for me. Zander was all right but I didn't feel the connection to him, at least not as much as I did to Gwen. Also, about his wolf, I'm not sure how I feel about him. At first I was confused and a bit weirded out but by the end, I don't know. The change happened a bit fast for me. The secondary characters were also great and I liked seeing the characters from previous books make an appearance in this book. I even liked the 'bad guys', they were sorta pathetic but also funny and at times they even made my blood boil, so that's a good way to make the villain.

    So all in all, it's a good story but not the best I've read by this author. That being said, I'll definitely read more of her work.

    I jumped on this book the second I saw it on NetGalley and dropped all my plans in order to read it. I'm obsessed with these shifters and when I heard this book was going to have a human heroine I was ten times more excited.

    Zander is one of the quiet pack members, which drew me into his characters and made me want to find out all his secrets. I really liked getting to learn more about him and seeing him when he went all possessive with Gwen. She may not have Shifter strength but she held her own with Zander, and wouldn't let him treat her as a weak human. They had a strong connection from the beginning and their fighting each other only added to it and added some of that much loved sexual tension.

    Suzanne Wright having a human heroine in this series put a new unique spin on it and I was extremely happy with the new direction. I thought it was so different from her other books in that there was only one character who had the animal instincts, which made a big difference. It made it really interesting to see how Zander's wolf felt and then to see how Gwen herself was feeling about being with a shifter.

    There was a great deal of suspense and action featured as well and it had me on the edge of my seat from page one. Bad guys were coming from every direction making my heart race and then some ass kicking was going on. I couldn't get enough of everything and never had that moments where I thought there was too much going on. This author is one of my favorites and next time someone asks me why I'm just going to point them in the direction of this book.

    This is a tough one to review because although I liked it, I didn't love it like I have most of Wright's books and I'm not too sure why. Wright is an auto-buy author for me, but this one was a bit of a let down. See, it had the strong, sassy heroine - albeit a human one - who took no crap, a hot and growly alpha shifter, no lack of communication, getting to revisit the previous characters, a decent bit of the old suspense and nary a TSTL move in sight, buuuuut ... IDK, there was just something m

IDK, there was just something missing.

    Gwen being human was a great twist on the true mates idea, but both her and Zander came across as a wee bit flat and one dimensional. I couldn't really connect with either of them and to be honest, even the "baddies" didn't work.

    Edited 6/10/17 - After thinking on this I'm pushing my rating up to 4 stars because compared to some of the PN books I've been reading lately this one is WAY better

    After three books it finally feels like a Mercury Pack book and not a Phoenix Pack extended book. It helped of course that no one from the Phoenix Pack made an appearance. This was strictly a Mercury Pack show even if most of it takes place away from their home.

    After three books it finally feels like a Mercury Pack book and not a Phoenix Pack extended book. It helped of course that no one from the Phoenix Pack made an appearance. This was strictly a Mercury Pack show even if most of it takes place away from their home.

    Gwen Miller is human. She and her family run a haunted inn that has a marsh for a backyard. She's a witness in a vile crime, an entitled teenager drugging and beating a female shifter, and she's being harassed over it. But Gwen wont back down and refuses to be bribed or intimidated into changing her testimony. Her need to do what is right and stand up for the shifter is ingrained to her very being.

    Zander Devlin books a room at Gwen's inn and is soon intrigued by her. When he finds out what she did for one of his kind he wants to help and keep her safe from everything and everyone. But she's not the only one that has troubles. Zander has his own bad childhood and nemesis that has shaped him and his wolf.

    Zander finds himself drawn to Gwen. Her strength and desire to do the right thing along with a set of killer legs are irresistible to him even if his wolf backs away at her presence. But getting to know Gwen and being with her is no bed of roses and our wolf has his work cut out for him.

    Things as always with out wolves are not that easy. Gwen and Zander have enemies gunning for them as well their own personal issues to overcome. But again, as always they have pack and in Gwens case family to support them through it all.

    So why not 5 stars? Well, first because it didn't feel memorable to me. SW followed her pack formula faithfully and it felt just a teeny weeny samey (I hope the literary gods don't strike me down for my hubris.) And secondly because it lagged a bit in the middle. It felt a bit like spending time until we got to the big event/action towards the end(again, hubris.) But I loved absolutely loved the setting of the haunted inn with a marsh behind it and all the secondary characters in Gwens family. Particularly uncle Donnie. Give me a big Victorian house, tell me it's haunted and I'll be happy to read it. A great addition to the series even with the teeny tiny issues.

    is the only writer that can write about shifters in a way I can actually enjoy, since well, I admit it freely, shifters ain't my fave creatures to start with,

    BUT

    my SUZ (*wink* yeah, I ve head the honor of meeting her in person #RAREBerlin2017, so I can call her that too 😉) makes these dominant, protective, possessive alphas look damn fine even while wearing fur...

    So, damn...
