Adult Review: Unleash the night (Dark-hunter #9, Were-hunter #4) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

The book is with Adult content so please, beware if you're under 18.

Goodread summary:
It's a predator-eat-predator world for the Were-Hunters. Danger haunts any given day. There is no one to trust. No one to love. Not if they want to live...

An orphan with no clan that will claim him, Wren Tigarian grew to adulthood under the close scrutiny and mistrust of those around him. A forbidden blend of two animals - snow leopard and white tiger - Wren has never listened to anyone when there was something he wanted. Now he wants Marguerite.

Marguerite D'Aubert Goudeau is the daughter of a prominent U.S. senator who hates the socialite life she's forced to live. Like her mother before her, she has strong Cajun roots that her father doesn't understand. Still, she has no choice but to try and conform to a world where she feels like an outsider. But the world of rich and powerful humans is never to meet the world of the Were-Hunters who exist side by side with them, unseen, unknown, undetected. To break this law is to call down a wrath of the highest order.

In order to have Marguerite, Wren must fight not just the humans who will never accept his animal nature, but the Were-Hunters who want him dead for endangering their world. It's a race against time and magic without boundary that could cost Marguerite and Wren not just their lives, but their very souls...

I had a bit of a hard time finishing book 8 but those problems were gone as soon as I started this one. I don't know if it's the animals part or just the story but I loved every second of this book.
We have our new pair and it's amazing to follow their story. What I loved most was the time traveling and the complicated story this actually was. There were so many surprises along the way that it was hard to follow at times but I loved it. The pace was fast and everything came hard at the characters..
Let's talk a bit for them..
Wren Tigarian, by all means should have been a spoiled little brat that lived off of daddy's money and had it easy with everything, but it wasn't. He actually had a hell of a life, alone and closed of, living in the Sanctuary in New Orleans where everyone was afraid of him because of what he was. Because of him being a hybrid, his parents and especially his mother, didn't like him and after they died he was all alone. And the thing is he was used to it so it and even though it bothered him, he never did anything to change things.. Everyone around him was just too scared or uncomfortable in his presence and no one actually caught his attention enough for him to want to try.
That was until Marguerite D'Aubert Goudeau came into Sanctuary one night in honor of Nick Goutier. Everything changed then and that's when things started to get interesting.
Wren was drawn to the human woman like bees to honey and no matter how hard he tried he just couldn't get her out of his mind. She obsessed his every though and stirred all kinds of feeling in him.
It was quite entertaining to watch him struggling with his feelings up until they gave his enemies a reason to attack him and Maggie. That's when all hell broke loose around him and as far as he was concerned, he would kill anyone who tried to hurt his Maggie.
Marguerite on the other hand had good life with her family until her mom killed herself. Ever since that happened she's been unhappy because her father, a US senator, controlled her life and even though she had everything she needed she didn't have her freedom and she felt like she's suffocating. She was afraid to do anything against her father up until she met the busboy at Sanctuary. Obviously poor and definitely not someone her father would approve of, Wren was her dirty little secret and she fell for him hard.
Facing his enemies after they went after him, Maggie managed to deal with everything that happened quite well. She embraced her new life like she was meant to live it and I really liked her because of it. She is a strong character ready to fight for her happiness and she did.
The story was really good. It was fast-paced and it had quite a few twists and turns along the way but everything worked out for the best. It was entertaining and I loved the animalistic part of the book. I have a thing for the were-hunters and I loved this book a little more than the rest just because of them.
