Title: Strange Addiction (The 12 Olympians #4)
Author Name: Sandrine Gasq-Dion
Publication Date & Length: November 2014


Brock Holloway has it all — money, friends, a bitchin’ car and a promising football career. At least, that’s what people see. Inside, though, Brock is fighting for something he knows he can never have: Unconditional love. As the child of Aphrodite, he is worshipped, admired, wanted – but never loved.

Zack Duran is a wolverine shifter — and not a nice guy. Zack’s shifter side is always in control, often making him heartless and unfeeling. When Zack is assigned to guard Brock Holloway, his tactless wolverine tendencies become even more prevalent and Zack has to fight his shifter personality AND his genuine feelings for the beautiful football player.

A near tragedy shakes him to his core, and Zack can no longer fight the feelings he has for Brock. But giving in to his emotions may come at too high a price. A startling secret charges Brock with the nearly impossible task of taming Zack’s beast. Is he up to the challenge? Can Zack give him what he needs? And with danger working overtime, can they finally be together as they were intended?

Brock and Zack are two in a large family of Olympians and Shifters.  Their relationship starts out quite rocky, as they are learning about themselves and each other. Zack is attracted to Brock, but due to jealousy, an emotion that is unfamiliar to Zack, he belittles Brock on a regular basis. Brock believes that Zack is the epitome of rude and annoying.
While Zack has come from a past that he cannot remember, he knows that he is dangerous and tries to come to terms with the fact that he has no past – or at least one that his mind has blocked due to the trauma he suffered. Brock is the son of Aphrodite and has always wanted someone to see him for what he has to offer, not his looks. Brock has lived his life with almost no physical or emotional love. He had unfeeling parents, was bullied for being gay and went through life looking for close physical contact by sleeping his way through people. Zack must learn to control his inner beasts in order to ensure that he will never hurt Brock. Brock, for the first time in his life, has someone that wants to be with him for who he is, not because he has power over them, as the son of Aphrodite. Together, they learn that love is worth fighting for.
While a war is swirling around them, Brock and Zack must figure out if they can let the feelings they have for each other come to the surface, or if it is safer to keep those feelings hidden.  This book had more of a sci-fy feeling than the other stories. Zack is essentially raised in a laboratory. He is tortured by scientists to see if they can bring out Zach’s hidden shifter forms.
I enjoyed this story and really enjoyed how protective Brock became over Zack, despite Zack being the protector. I thought that the author did a good job at incorporating the other characters from the previous books in to the story as well. All of the characters are supportive and want the best for each other.
This series is pretty great too.  I would recommend this series if you enjoy shifter stories and paranormal activity.

I have been blessed in this life to not only have parents that support me, but kids that do as well. I grew up in a loving but “Old School” French household. My parents worked for the airlines (TWA) so I was able to see a lot of Europe as a kid. I moved to Seattle Washington at the age of 22 and stayed there for twelve years before moving to Alaska for a little over two. Fairbanks, AK was one hell of an experience and I wouldn’t hesitate to go back! I spent a little over a year in South Carolina before moving back to Arizona. I then left for Kansas for five years and now reside in the South for another two years. I’ve been married to the military in one way or another for over half my life and wouldn’t change a thing about it. Writing has become my fulltime job and I’ve never been so happy doing a job I love and being able to do it in my jammies. I plan on writing until I dry up and die. Hopefully, that won’t happen soon!
