Attacked by a wolf while hiking, Anna Avery's life just got a little hairier. Living in the Big Horn mountains in Wyoming, with a group of werewolves who are more animal than human, Anna must try to hold onto her human side. It's not easy when the alpha continues to persuade her into his bed, while another wolf is chomping at the bit to become her mate. To top it all off, dead bodies are showing up and it just so happens that Anna was the last to see them alive. She'll have to work to prove her innocence and taming the wolf who bites first and asks questions never.
This book is not intended for readers under 18.
This is another one of those books that I bought on a whim when it was on sale, because I had heard great things about the author and her books. I'm not usually a fan of books about weres, though. I was willing to take a chance and bumped it up on my TBR list, because I had agreed to review the second book for a tour.
Oh. My. God.
I couldn't put this book down. Anna Avery is sexy, smart, and a total smartass. She knows what she wants and can stand up for herself. A woman who can control the overly sexual wolf lying inside her with all of those hot men around her, constantly trying to bed her, is amazingly strong.
She also has a heart of gold, looking out for her fellow packmates, and is willing to sacrifice herself to protect those she cares about the most.
That devotion and a strong, unexplained pull to her alpha leader, can get her into trouble, though, as well as some hidden talents that will come to light later on in the story.
One thing I really liked about this book is how it doesn't go through a few chapters about Anna being turned and how her life has changed. That revelation takes place in a prologue. The first chapter dives right into the story, a few months after she has been with her pack. It gets the action started immediately, which sucks you in even more.
The love scenes are hot, yet not smutty. They make you want to find an alpha dog of your own! The story is strong, with plenty more to come in future books.
I can now say that I am officially hooked on Anna Avery and can't wait to check out more of Stephanie Nelson's work!
