Love. Family. Brotherhood. 

Lexi has faced personal struggles, but nothing has prepared her for the most perilous battle of her life. Shifters are on the brink of war as Northerners target Colorado in an attempt to infiltrate the borders. Texas winds up on the hit list, and the Weston pack prepares to fight for their land… and for their lives. 

Austin’s courage is put to the test when rogues want to seize his land and slaughter his pack. But that’s not all he’s facing as two shocking revelations turn their lives upside down. His love for Lexi is unwavering, but their future is uncertain. 

Will the local packs set aside their differences to fight together, or will this be the end of peace among Shifters? Stand witness to the epic conclusion of the Seven series. 

One Second is the final book in the Seven series by Dannika Dark. I hate to see this series end, but I loved how it ended... right down to the final sentence, which brought us full circle in a way. I haven't read the two novellas yet either, so I still have those to look forward too. Yay!

I love that this book didn't feel the need to break apart Lexi and Austin as a couple in order to keep the thrill of the chase alive for the reader. I hope that makes sense. You know how so many times in a story, once the two people are securely together, some of the thrill of their story is gone in a second book?(This was very much a Lexi/Austin sequel, because we get Lexi's perspective again.) Well, the thrill is not lost, my friend. Their story still, very much kept my attention. There is a lot going on to worry about: an upcoming war, a baby, life and death situation. There's quite a bit of madness going on, and I ate up every Second of it! 

I have to say this author is quite talented. She's completely brought these characters to life. While I like to say Denver is my favorite, because his goofy personality makes him so stinkin' irresistible, each character has grabbed a part of my heart in their own unique way. I simply/not so simply love them all. 

“Not now,” she said, pushing him away.

He kissed the curve of her neck. “If not now, when?”

“We’ll be late for dinner.”

He smiled against her skin, breathing in her scent. “The chili can wait.”

“Maybe so, but Reno’s appetite can’t.”

Austin narrowed his eyes and stepped back. “Say again?”

Nothing about the look Lexi gave him was innocuous. “Well… it seemed like a waste for you to cook all that chili for just us.”

“Alexia Talulah Cole…”

She folded her arms and jutted her hip to the side. “What have I said about using my middle name? Look, we didn’t drag our friends all the way out here to isolate them in some godforsaken cabin in the middle of nowhere while we’re busy having primal sex.”

Austin had no doubt the other couples were engaging in their own mating rituals—perfectly happy to spend time alone for the rest of the trip. He sensed Lexi was creating a diversion. She’d been doing it since they arrived two days ago, always finding something to do whenever he got aroused.

“If that’s the way you want it,” he said gruffly, folding his arms and turning away. “Guess I don’t care to see what’s in your bag, either.”

She laughed brightly and snatched the handle, swinging the bag around as she strutted toward the ladder to the loft. “You obviously didn’t see everything in here.”

“What makes you say that?” Images of Lexi in those lacy panties flitted through his mind, and he gripped the chair, caging his growl when he swung his gaze up and saw her naked at the top of their loft.

“Because, Mr. Cole, if you had seen everything in this bag, you’d already be up here having your way with me. But since you’re not interested,” she sang, moving out of sight.

The next thing he knew, his blue flannel shirt came flying over the edge and landed on a lampshade, followed by his dark-wash jeans.

“All right, smartass,” he shouted, changing clothes in the middle of the cabin. “We’ll do your formal chili dinner with everyone, make Vampire jokes, and then we’ll have drinks. But once they’re gone, you have a date with everything in that bag, and I’m the chaperone.”

“Dream on,” she replied.

He zipped up his jeans. “And that’ll be the song we make love to.”
