Revelation (de La Vega Cats book 2) by Lauren Dane
Revelation is the second book in the de La Vega cats and gives us a glimpse into their world with Max de La Vega and Kendra Kellogg. Kendra is a very powerful witch and Renee’s sister (from Trinity). She has moved to Boston to be closer to her sister and to start another chapter in her life. Max de La Vega is lawyer and is next in line to be the Alpha of the jamboree. He is convinced Kendra is his mate and is pursuing her regardless of her hesitancy in getting serious with someone again after her failed marriage.
I think the story line is really great with the introduction of more of the magical angle from Kendra. It was done really well and blends with the jaguar story. I really liked the interaction and byplay between the two characters. Kendra is a really well-developed character, she is a tough, take no shit woman and I love her for it. Max is just yummy. He is a leader in every sense of the word. Together they are just HOT, HOT HOT! Max and Kendra have some really great scenes together and they steam up the pages.
My favorite quote from the book is when Kendra asks Max “what do you want from me?” and he replies “everything”. Ah, loved it! One of the really enjoyable parts of this book was when each character gave some internal thoughts and dialogue. Some of it was so funny I was laughing out loud as I read it. I am so looking forward to the continuation of this series with the next book.
Synopsis from Book/Publisher:
At long last, Kendra Kellogg has found her sister—but she’s no closer to filling the gaps in her past. The magick that brought them together makes them targets for dark mages intent on finishing what started with their mother’s murder. As if her life wasn’t chaotic enough, in barrels the one thing she doesn’t expect, Max de La Vega. He’s six-and-a-half-feet of cocoa-brown alpha male. He’s strong, intelligent, sexy and intense. Everything she’d wanted in a man. And he scares the hell out of her. Still healing from a disastrous past relationship, she wonders if she’ll ever have that kind of forever. The next in line to run his jaguar jamboree, Max is unused to hearing “no”. Once he knows what he wants, he assumes he’ll get it. And he wants Kendra. She deserves happiness and it’s his mission to give it to her. When dark mages attempt to steal her magickal energy, Max’s cat agrees with the man—Kendra is his to protect and he will stop at nothing to keep her safe. She can push him away as hard as she likes, he’s not going anywhere.
