Laura Wright - Eternal Beast

Ever since his abduction by the Eternal Order of Vampires, Gray Donohue has finally found his true calling: vengeance. He will stop at nothing to bring his fellow Impure vampires the freedom they deserve. Now if he could just release his primal need for the beautiful vampire who saved his life-and rules his thoughts and desires . . .
After nearly killing the senator she was assigned to protect, Dillon is now in mortal danger. The jaguar within her has been unleashed, and she can no longer control it. Sex is the only thing that can tame her shift. And Gray is the only man who can make her surrender to a passion strong enough to overpower her inner beast. But she doesn't want to surrender-she wants her life back. Because she is determined never to belong to anyone, especially not Gray-the man who destiny claims is her mate.

Comment: Another of the countless series I keep updated.
This is the story of Gray, the brother of the protagonist of book #1. 
Gray is a vampire Impure, meaning he doesn't have the same abilities and power the Purebloods have, or the social status. His sister's mate helped him unblocking his mind for he was in an mental institute due to his lack of social response because he kept hearing voices in his head without the possibility to filter them or to avoid them. With Alexander's help, he can now function better and even put himself in the position of leader of the Impures' revolution so they could have as many rights as the Purebloods.
Dillon is his mate, she's known as a Pureblood veana - the author's word for woman - and she's a fighter too. But she has a secret, something we've found out in the previous book, which is the fact she's mutore too. A mutore is a shape shifter, kind of. She can shift but apparently she doesn't have the same thought process as she has in her vampire mind, which, to be honest, is weird. Anyway. She feared rejection by her family and never said a word but now her secret is out ans she wants revenge against the one who caused it.
Dillon and Gray have always been attracted to each other since they met but now it gets clear why they couldn't fight it or get it over with.

Well, I liked this book. I think the author managed to write an interesting story, many little tidbits about this and that to keep us thinking and wondering what it could mean in the future.
The romance was fine. I mean, nothing amazing or sudden, but good in a certain way. It had wonderful moments and other not so cute, but overall, good. I was more happy with the fact the guy was the one accepting the fact they're mates and wanted to be with her before she admitted it to herself.
The bad guys played their part and I was always curious to see what they could come up with next although these books don't have a super villain, it had bad guys doing bad things and we want them dead or punished but I can't say I hate them immeasurably.
My favorite part is how they all live as a family. They, the heroes, of course. Throughout the books the three main characters have found out they have more brothers and some of them are also shape shifters and will certainly have their story in upcoming books. But they're getting to know each other, to trust each other and they live together, as a family. I love this part! It's my favorite thing in this kind of book, the scenes where they act like family and we want them to accept the others and to like them and to just be a family. It's great. Can't wait for everyone's stories just to watch them find a mate and be happy and have the support of the others.
Like in the previous books, this one ended with something happening suddenly and we just know it will be a key incident in the next story.
So, in the end, this book is more worthy to me because of everything else and not the romance, although I liked it too because they were two characters we knew and wanted happy.
