Primal Male

Primal Male by Sasha White is the December book club read from Jennifer's Random Musings. From the back cover~

An empath with the ability to sense others' emotions, Drake Wheeler has survived by keeping his own feelings shut off from the whole world. But nothing has prepared him for the sudden smoldering need that overtakes him in the presence of pureblood shape shifter Melissa Montrose. Even more surprising-he can't sense anything around the sultry bookstore owner...except for his fierce urge to take her here, now, over and over again...

Melissa has lived her life in a small town, hiding her family's mysterious birthright. A fling with the sexy tourist who wanders into her bookstore seems like a delicious, temporary diversion, until Drake touches her in exactly the way she craves, teasing and tempting every inch of her body into explosive ecstasy. Drake's obviously a man with secrets, but Melissa's go a few of her own, and she's going to show him just how wild and raw pure, primitive desire can be...

Sasha White is an new to me author. I'm glad Jennifer picked this book as I might a missed a really great read just browsing the bookstore. I really enjoyed the story and will look for the past books in the series. This book can stand alone, but I always want to know about the background of the other characters.

Melissa and Drake were both very strong characters and I loved the chemistry between them. They literally burned up the pages through much of the book. I also really love the mystery and the paranormal elements that were thrown into the story. Ms. White gives the reader a little bit of everything in a very strong story.
