Ivy believes every life must have balance, and during the past year, she’s found harmony living with the Weston pack. When an evil spirit from her past threatens her wolf, it sets off a chain reaction of events that alters the course of her destiny.

Lorenzo Church is a powerful, wealthy Packmaster who rules his pack through intimidation and order. He has vowed to never love a woman because love can destroy an empire. But chaos is fast approaching in the form of a Shifter named Ivy—a Native American, like him, who has invaded his dreams since the moment they met. She is spirited, wise, and unattainable.

In an unexpected turn of events, Ivy must choose whether or not to let go of the one person she has always loved. Lorenzo discovers the root of her courage but will never win her as his mate unless he learns to listen to his heart.

Having read Five weeks (the previous installment in the Seven series) I was ecstatic to receive a complimentary copy of Four Days in exchange for an honest review.   Four Days is the fourth book in the Seven series and just like its predecessor, it can be read as a stand-alone.  It’s a story of love, hope and acceptance.
Four Days tells the story of Ivy a shifter and a member of the Weston pack and Lorenzo Church, a pack master for a neighbouring pack.  Lorenzo relies on intimidation when it comes to ruling his pack. His pack members respect him out of fear rather than love. He is cynical when it comes to love. He believes that it has no place in his life.  He is close to no one and persons found it hard to relate to him. Ivy on the other hand has a great capacity to love.  She is opinionated, strong willed, resilient, witty and smart.  She has a beautiful soul and a forgiving spirit in the face of the hardships she suffered most her life.   She is not the type to sit around feeling sorry for herself.  She is not the type of woman that Lorenzo generally gets involved with as such when he found himself intrigued by her he was confused.
The interaction between them is entertaining and the chemistry is sizzling. They are good together; however, I felt that not enough attention was given to developing their romance.  I thought the story’s main focus was on
dealing with the tormentor from Ivy’s past. My experience with this author’s work is limited, but the
main thing that jumps out at me is that she has a knack of weaving real life issues in her stories.  This one of the
things that appeals to me when reading as it makes it easy for me to relate to the story.
I enjoyed this book from the outset and I was hooked to the very last page. I admit that there were parts where I thought the pace was a bit slow due to extensive descriptive details; however, this did not detract
from the story.
This is a great read. If you love shifters and you want a story that will keep you on your toes, then get yourself a copy of Four Days.
Favourite quote:
 “My mother had once told me, never to trust a person who is like the moon. They don’t shine from within, but require the light of others to make them look good,” (Ivy)
Excerpt
It was the longest and shortest day and night of my life—one that was pressed in my memory like a rose in a book. He said he’d never allowed a woman to stay the whole night, and
he definitely didn’t hold a woman as she slept. I also got the feeling he’d never shown this side of himself to anyone—drawing more than just pleasure from intimacy, but emotional comfort as well. ” Will you cuddle me while I sleep?” I asked when he stood naked before me, drinking a bottle of water. “I’m one of the most respected Packmasters in the territory. I’ve killed men for disloyalty, and those who follow me do so out of fear. I don’t cuddle,” was all he said. So my Thunder Wolf crossed his arms and lay on his back, watching me in the mirror above the bed as I rolled on my side and went to sleep. When my breathing became heavy and he thought I’d drifted off, he scooted close behind me and nuzzled his face against the nape of my neck. I took more pleasure in those secret gestures than when he kissed me while awake. I’d always known that the way a man treats a woman when no one is watching showed his true colors, but I’d never given it thought beyond that. There is something pure and honest in the way a man treats a woman when he thinks she isn’t aware. It shows the kind of man he truly is. Now I knew with absolute certainty that despite his stony presence and arrogant superiority, he possessed a compassionate heart. Lorenzo Church was a man with two sides to his life, like a coin. One I wished I could keep in my pocket.
