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.

My Four Days review:
I’m just going to fangirl about Four Days for a paragraph right now. There will be squeeing, bouncing and much happiness! I loved Ivy and Lorenzo, the writing was really good, and there were epic fights, a horrendous villain and just lots of awesomeness all around.
Now that the squeeing is out of the way, let me tell you about all the things that made Four Days a fantastic read. The character development was outstanding. Ivy seemed so very shy and meek in the prior books in the Seven series, and to see her inner calm and strength while showing that being bad-ass isn’t only in the way a character can win a physical fight made my day. Ivy was wise beyond her years, and with her reflective words, she was able to change situations that could have been extremely difficult and dangerous if dealt with in a different way.
The whole story as well as the plot in Four Days were very well executed as well, I was completely immersed in the story from the beginning, and I couldn’t read fast enough to see what would happen next. Ivy’s predicament was a huge one, and while there were some things that could be dealt with easily, others were seemingly impossible to overcome. And while she was working on both how to fight physically and emotionally, I grew to love and respect Ivy a lot. There is some native American mythology, too, and I love learning about that – even if it is in fiction. It added yet another layer to Ivy and Lorenzo’s characters.
Between the suspense, the slow-burning romance, the story and the amazing characters, I loved every second of reading Four Days – I think it’s Ms. Dark’s best so far, and that’s saying a lot, as I love both her Mageri series and her Seven series. If you enjoy urban fantasy with shifters, intrigue, a well-executed plot and characters you can love, Four Days is the book you should add to your shelves this week.
Some of my favorite Four Days quotes:
The moon was a deceptive spirit – stealing the light from the sun and mirroring it back at us.
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. The light that shone down and covered the property felt soulless and dead.
