    While not the greatest story I’ve ever read it is much better than a one star book. According to the blurb at the end of the this was made up of chapters from an upcoming book, which may be why it was a little unpolished. I liked some of the ideas she had for the werewolves that could be expanded on in future stories. It was an easy evening read and was interesting enough to make me want to find out more about the word she is creating. I wish it was longer and more fleshed out, but perhaps that will happen in the upcoming book. Overall, I enjoyed the story.

    I didn’t connect with the characters, the dialogue wasn’t very good, and the random comma usage made me want to email the author and offer to edit. The story didn’t seem to flow very well, either. All in all, I’d advise readers to pass on this one.

    I read the synopsis of this book and I immediately hit download. It started off okay but it got really bad, really fast! So the main character Jessica is having a horrible vacation with her douche bag boyfriend and his flunkies. They stop at a restaurant in Alaska, which she hates, to get some food and booze. So Jessica is diabetic and she’s almost having an episode when Flint Riverclaw comes to her rescue. His name made me wanna gag but whatever. So from the beginning Flint was being a little too smothering, especially since he barely knew Jessica. But she decides to get ride home with him, assuming he’s not some psycho and they wind up having sex at her motel the night before her flight leaves.

    Fast forward four days and Jessica is back in New York or wherever she lives and her body is acting up on her and she can’t stop thinking about Flint. That same night Flint shows up at her door telling her that she’s pregnant with his child and she’s also his mate. This is where the problems come in for me. It’s never directly said, but Flint knew that when he slept with Jessica she would get pregnant. He never asks her if that’s what she wants, he simply impregnates her. And then he tells her that she must quit her job and move back to Alaska with him and his pack. This frustrates me because all in the beginning of the book Jessica talks about her job and how hard she had to work to get there and how much she loves her city life and her job. Yet when Flint comes along, a man whom she’s known all of 5 days, she just drops it all to move with him back to Alaska, the place she hates, she even gives up her cat! All her hard work just goes down the shitter because he impregnated her, purposely and wants her to move with him and she’s okay with this. What?!

    So she moves with him to Alaska and she’s happy to be reduced to mere house wife to a man whom she’s known less than a month. And then she meets his friend Johns’ wife, who is like 60 or something while his friend John looks 30 or 40.He then tells Jessica that he will live for about 200 years but he’s only 75now and he looks about 40. And she’s okay with this. Maybe it’s just me but did no one else catch the fact that even if she lives to 100, he’ll still be alive for about 50 years after she dies? Or the fact that when she looks like she’s 90 he’ll look like he’s 60 or something. It’s suppose to be a love story, I get it but the author could have given the main character to reaction to it.

    But just like everything else she simply goes with the flow saying ‘whatever’ because Flint says it’s okay. The irony of this book is that Jessica’s best friend is a feminist but everything Jessica does is solely rooted off what Flint wants her to do. It’s like once he says something her mind just conforms to it. It was so irritating. I wouldn’t reread and I wouldn’t recommend.
