After years of living abroad, Maizy returns home to the only family she’s ever known—a pack of wolves. When she confronts her childhood watchdog to see where they stand, his resentment leaves her uncertain about where she really belongs.

Behind Denver’s charming smile is a tragic past—one that’s made his wolf savage and unpredictable. Only Maizy has been able to tame that darkness, and when they’re reunited after many years apart, he no longer sees a child he once protected. She’s captivating and intelligent—a woman with the world at her fingertips and two suitors offering more than he ever could.

Torn between two worlds, Maizy must choose how her fairy tale ends. Tragedy, murder, passion, and imprisonment all collide with a heart-stopping twist.

Destiny will find you.

As we could tell from the beginning of the series, something was going to happen with Maizy and Denver. His wolf was so protective of her, I just knew the wolf realized what the man had not. I thought I was going to feel funny about these two being together since we had spent most of the series with Maizy as a child and Denver the adult male looking after her. Somehow I think Denver’s maturity level helped even out the age difference the years we jumped put them at.

I was very pleased with Maizy and her actions when it came to helping Denver. A lot of times you’ll see the heroine making sacrifices for the heroes that always come back and bite them in the butt. Maizy has enough sense not to do that and I was so relieved. She was a level-headed and mature character after her many years away. This time at home is supposed to help her decide what world she wants to live in, but really I think she came back to test her feelings for Denver.

Sometimes I laughed at Denver’s antics, and sometimes I sighed and rolled my eyes. He was a funny character in an immature way. There was a dark streak to him though and that streak took a protective stance with Maizy. One of their main problems is Maizy is human. Or so most of the characters think. Prince realizes what she is and his pursuit of her really bothers Denver. I’m surprised Denver didn’t question Prince’s motives more when it came to his relentless presence in Maizy’s life. Maizy’s mortality brings out a fierceness in Denver and he is even more protective than normal. His protectiveness proves to be his downfall in one terrible scene.

I felt panicked and upset at Denver’s situation. After thinking that we had Maizy and Denver’s relationship set up, we get this problem that could break everything. Despite her worry over Denver, she fights for any kind of answer she can find to save the love of her life. I admit I was full of anxiety every time an offer was set before Maizy. I just couldn’t have Maizy follow a road that would ruin everything she had with Denver. Denver was sure that is what would happen and he doesn’t react well. The answer to Denver’s problem falls into their laps and it is something that I never even considered or thought of before. You’ll be surprised. I know I was!

Two Minutes was the story I’d been waiting for, for a few stories now. I was expecting it with trepidation, not sure how I would accept the two of them together. However, their story proved to be a beautiful story of these two growing up and realizing what they had and what they were willing to do to secure it. Denver and Maizy make a cute couple and even though Denver doesn’t lose all of his crazy ways with the eating everything in sight and his wonderful tshirts, he still is man enough to be mated. I thoroughly enjoyed the ride of Two Minutes. The scares and anxiety I had kept me rushing back to the story as often as I could to make sure these characters didn’t do anything crazy to ruin their pairing.

It was fun seeing the progression of the couples over the time span Two Minutes jumps. That is one of the best parts of this series for me is that the group is so close that we continue to see everyone from book to book. There is only one more to go if you do not count the novellas and I’m dying to know how the Weston pack settles into their lives.

The narration review is perfect, as always for this series. I love Nicole Poole’s voices for the characters. Her voice for Denver fits him perfectly with that tad of immaturity mixed with adult. I can’t imagine these characters done by anyone else.
