Cynthia is dying and rather than live her life tied to tubes she has decided to live her way for whatever time she has left. I am really surprised that I picked Trapped Between Two Alphas to read. Don’t get me wrong it is one of my favorites from Sam Crescent. I just cry enough these days without any help so reading this one just adds fuel to the fire so to speak and yes there are points where you really will want to cry when you read this story. Cynthia is very sick but she is tired of fighting a losing battle that leaves her a pincushion living under a microscope. She wants what time she has left to be on her terms and her way. I honestly can’t blame her there. It breaks my heart every time I get to the part where Kris and Matt meet her and she knows she can’t follow her attraction for them. Then there’s Matt and Kris who fall for Cynthia and know that something is wrong, I am impressed with their strength of will. I could almost see the scenes play out in my head while my heart broke for those two Alpha wolves. I think my favorite part of this whole book would be the rockin’ bedroom scene, you will need a cold shower or your significant other around for those and then of course my other favorite part would be the curve ball that I didn’t see coming and seem to forget about every time, I am not telling you where it is but I can promise you won’t expect it.

Cynthia Lewis wants to live her life but her illness is back. She knows she can’t fight it. Either she dies in the hospital or she dies in a place of her choosing. Tired of being in the hospital, she rents out a property far from any medical center.
Kris Hall and Matt Stewart are the two alphas who own the property. Their hatred for each other is the only thing they have in common—until Cynthia. The moment they smell her they know she was destined to be their mate.
With her illness spreading, Kris and Matt know they have to turn her. But if they turn her, they risk killing her. They have to make a choice and fast. Being wolves, hunters are on their tails. With time against them, what will they do for the woman they love?
“I mean it. You can’t become attached to me.”
In the next moment his lips slammed down on hers cutting off her words.
“I’m going to take care of you the way I should,” he said, breaking from the kiss. She felt him pressing kisses along her jaw to her neck.
Her body went up in flames from his touch.
“You’re so damn responsive. I’ve got to have you.” He cupped her cheek.
“I want you, too,” she said. Staring into his eyes Cynthia realised this was her chance to finally rid herself of her pesky virginity.
“Where’s your bed?” he asked in between kisses.
“Upstairs. You know where the bedroom is.”
“I’m giving you time to back out. If I get into your room, Cynthia, I’m not stopping. I need you too fucking bad to stop. I want to fuck you badly.”
Her body shivered with anticipation. “I’m not going to back out. I want you, Kris.”
He picked her up in his arms and carried her up the small flight of stairs leading to her bedroom. She giggled as he dropped her to the bed.
Kris stepped back removing his jeans. She stared at his cock. His cock stood to attention. He was long, thick, and proud. The tip leaked his pre-cum, which glinted in the light. She moved up the bed to make room for him.
His large hands came out to grab her hips. She laughed as he pulled her close. Kris was so strong. She felt that strength as his arms banded around her waist. His mouth slammed down on hers making her moan.
Kris didn’t know how he was containing himself. He felt Matt close by. Their bond was growing with every second they spent with Cynthia. He felt the bond growing with their packs. The packs were uniting while the alphas were claiming their mate. The strength of their packs was startling.
Staring down into her blue gaze Kris knew she was the one responsible for the growing power among them all. Her body called to him. Running his hands down the curve of her breasts to her tiny waist Kris scented her arousal.
She wasn’t lying when she said she wanted them. Her innocence lay between them waiting to be claimed. He wouldn’t do it without Matt. Her virginity was something they both intended to take together.
“What are you waiting for?” she asked.
Kris chuckled. “You’re innocent, baby. I’m not going to take advantage of that.” He took her lips once again to silence her.
“You’re stalling,” she said.
Leaning back he stared down at her. He pressed his palm against her pussy. “I’m waiting for Matt to come.”
Matt and Kris used to be good friends until they dated the same girl in high school. Now they rule their own packs and fight all the time. It causes strife between the two packs. I started thinking why don’t they just get along and stop being hardheaded alpha wolves. I would have a hard time choosing between these two. Cynthia is dying and knows that she doesn’t want to die in the hospital where she has spent almost her whole life. She has told her doctor to take her off her medicine and she signs out of the hospital and goes away. If only she knew what would happen having to live between Kris and Matt. She feels a deep connection when she touches them and there is just something abut them that makes her want both. It would be hard to make a decision. In this book I just got lost as I was reading. It turned to be a great book and I wondered how I was going to write my review. You just don’t have the alpha wolves trying to break it to Cynthia about what they are and get her to accept them so they can turn her. You have hunters that are stealing wolves from packs and are out to kill all the wolves. These two alphas have to come together to get rid of them and save their packs. This was an exciting book and I could just imagine everything that went on was real. It was exciting and suspenseful. I got to experience a really great adventure. In a way this book can really pull at your heartstrings. Yes this is a menage book but it is tamer than usual.
Cynthia Lewis, sat in the chair and listened to the man who had treated her since she was first diagnosed with leukemia over five years before. He was more than her doctor, he had also become a friend. He celebrated with her and her parents with each remission and was there after her parent’s deaths, but no more. Cynthia was tired of being ill. In never living. No more hospitals, she would take what time she had and live it as best she could. Not happy with her decision the doctor made her promise to keep in touch and call him when things become too painful. Matt Stewart and Kris Hall, one time friends, then antagonist, now each is alpha of neighboring packs. Their mutual dislike goes out the window when Cynthia rents the cabin that sits on the border of their two packs. Both know the moment she steps from the vehicle that she is their mate, but they also sense that their mate is dying. She is human, but they are not. Their fates are intertwined and they cannot survive without the others. The answers are extreme and time is running out. Can they claim their mate and save her before she is taken away forever? What about the human hunters who are killing wolves with more and more frequency. This book is so well done as to pull you into the drama as it unfolds. You mourn as Cynthia's health fails and Kris and Matt rush to find the strength to do what is needed to save her. The urgency of finding the reason behind the increase of hunter attacks and how they are finding them so easily keeps you on edge. You will fall in love with the characters and enjoy the beauty of the word pictures Sam Crescent draws for us. This is a novel to be enjoyed over and over. During these cold winter months I can promise the love scenes will heat you up.
Cynthia has lived her life dying. Tired of fighting, she chooses to live while she can and takes herself to the woods to enjoy her remaining days, but two alphas are unwilling to let her go. Matt and Kris have spent years as enemies for no good reason other than they wanted to be. Their mate forces them to leave animosity behind or risk losing their Queen. Hunters are closing in, and when time runs out, it may not be the disease that gets her. Kris and Matt must bond and work together to save the woman they love. Trapped Between Two Alphas is exactly where the reader wishes to be after the first page. Ms. Crescent writes with a rhythm to ensnare the reader and pull them inside the story. The two alphas and packs are as much a part of the love as the alpha tri-mates. I loved the pack being so close and concerned. The world created by Ms. Crescent is unique and worth a visit.
Cynthia Lewis is dying. She knows that she can't fight the inevitable but she is determined to experience and live the last of her days without regret and that means leaving the doctors, drugs and hospital far behind. She rents a little house surrounded by woods and out in the middle of know where. What she never expected was two of the sexiest alpha's knocking on her door or the havoc they would cause. Kris Hall and Matt Stewart might be neighbors and alphas of their packs but the two hate each other and there is no way that they could ever get along, or is there? All it took was one breathe and Kris and Matt both knew two things; she was their mate and she was dying. They know the only way to save her is to turn her but they wonder if she is strong enough to survive the change. Trapped Between Two Alphas is a delightful read that blends a love story, with a touch of mystery and a suspenseful twist that keeps readers turning the page. The plot is a little typical of shifter tales but the author gives it an imaginative touch here and there to spice things up a bit for the reader's enjoyment. With death stalking Cynthia's character, the reader feels a strong empathy for all the heartache and sorrow this young heroine has experienced as well as what she might not have experience if not for Kris and Matt. She is sick, physically and emotionally but the author does a superb job of letting the reader feel the pull of her character as she struggles with her the life she has been given. Matt and Kris are two alphas who understand they are fighting the clock of death in order to save their mate and these two quickly go from fighting enemies to best friends. The connection between the three is portrayed strong and realistically. The pages light up with quite a bit of sizzle as Matt and Kris help Cynthia get read of her virginity and experience what it feels like to be their mate. The second in commands as well as the pack add the right touch to support the characters and the action. The danger and suspense to Cynthia, Kris and Matt as well as the pack leads to some high action adventure that will have the reader cheering the fight of good versus evil.
I loved the storyline of this book. It was well written and kept my interest the whole way through. Matt and Kris had an interesting background and I enjoyed that they figured out things about Cynthia and were so sweet to her.
