Samuel (Samuel's Pride #1)Samuel by Kathi S. Barton

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When Kennedy Buehler’s brother tried to marry her off to cover a debt, she fled all the way to the US. Now trying to find a job with her over qualified credentials as a chef, she has a chance at working for the Payne’s. She knows they are shifters, but when she meets Samuel Payne she is immediately off kilter, the man oozes sensuality but he has warned her to stay out of his way.

Samuel left home young after another beating from his father, when his father hurt his mother that was it. Samuel has acquired everything that was his fathers, including providing a new home for his mother and the last thing he wants is a mate. He saw what an unstable family life was like and he vowed he would never do that, but Kennedy is his mate and he realizes he can’t stay away. However Kennedy believes he only married her for her money and estate and doesn’t want anything to do with Samuel, but after an incident leaves Samuel with the fear of losing Kennedy, he quickly goes about showing how important she is to him.

This had a lot of buildup and then a quick okay everything is fine moment. However the story was quite intriguing and looks to be an interesting series. Kennedy and Samuel are quite a couple and I enjoyed Kennedy’s Irish side, she is a handful.
