White Tiger by Jennifer Ashley ~ Re-review

A woman is lured into the shadows of a dangerous manhunt...
Wanted and on the run...

For twenty years, Kendrick, a white tiger Shifter, has been the Guardian of un-Collared Shifters who spend their lives living in secret—and in fear of being shunted into Shiftertowns. When Kendrick’s group is discovered and forced to flee, Kendrick is more desperate than ever to protect them

His only salvation was in a beautiful stranger.
In a diner in the middle of nowhere, lonely waitress Addison Price has seen a lot of unusual drifters come and go, but none has ever captivated—and intimidated—her like the imposing fugitive who wields a broadsword with incredible skill. But when he risks all to protect her, Addison’s fear turns to empathy—and empathy to desire as she learns more about her savior. Soon she’s more than willing to help the crushingly sensual white tiger and his cubs in a passionate bid for freedom. Whatever the cost.

The first time I read this book, I read it stand alone.  I'd not read another book in this series.  It was right before this book came out more than two years ago.  I enjoyed it.  It was great shifter romance.  But I did not experience it that way I did with this read.  I've read the whole series before this book now.  I knew so much more and I enjoyed it so much more.  What I don't understand is why I didn't start reading the series then.  I must not have been in the serious shifter mood like I'm in now.  And this book is good on it's own but it's even better as part of the series!

I understood what had happened to Kendrick and his shifter before he met Addison.  I got the unease in the shifter community.  I knew who Zander was and what a miracle it was for him to be there.  I understand who Dylan was and that his group of shifter where good people.  And I really understood Tiger.  Not the white tiger, Kendrick but Tiger.  Two tigers together is amazing and I got that.  I understand how this world worked and what a Guardian was.  And because I got all of this, I was able to just enjoyed the story of Addison and Kendrick.  

I love how protective Kendrick is and how deeply he cares.  I appreciate his two little tiger cubs so much.  Tigers are rare shifters and to have a set of twins is so awesome.  Kendrick is adorable as he tries to protect Addie from himself by trying to stay away from her.  Yeah, that didn't work.  They were adorable together.

And Addie is an amazing leaders mate.  She care for everyone and defends people.  She stands up to Kendrick but she worries about him like no one else does.  He's the leader and everyone wants something from him.  Addie just wants to take care of him.  I loved them together.

I have to say that this book is my favorite of the series and because I appreciate it more having read the rest of the series first, it has to have more stars than the rest.  

This is some of the best kind of shifter romance.  Good stuff.  The best.  Don't miss this series.
