I had a different book blog, and I had a bunch of problems with the blog hosting company, and all of my content was deleted. I managed to salvage some of my reviews from back then by compiling what I wrote on Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes and Nobles review sections. I will be posting these reviews under a new blog post called Throw Back Thursday Reviews, until I have posted them all on this blog. 🙂 See some that I have already posted here.
The last thing Allison Wright ever expected when she moved to Red Ridge, New Mexico was to come muzzle to muzzle with the wolf of her dreams.
Seventeen-year-old Allison Wright is convinced she’s losing her mind. Uncontrollable mood swings, hot flashes, and the urge to punch anyone who gets in her way are suddenly becoming everyday occurrences. Before her erratic behavior gets out of hand, Allison’s mother finally comes clean about her dark secret. Mom is a werewolf, and soon Allison and her brother Aiden will suffer the same fate. When Allison reaches her breaking point, the family leaves their life in Texas to move to Red Ridge, New Mexico where they rejoin the pack that Allison’s mother left behind almost 20 years ago.
Unfortunately, not everyone in Red Ridge is thrilled about Allison’s arrival, especially when she attracts the attention of the very handsome, very taken, soon-to-be alpha, Cade Walker. Little does Allison know, her mere presence is causing a rift in a once unified pack. Not only has Cade been forbidden from being with Allison by his father, the pack’s alpha, Cade’s girlfriend, Kendall Stuart, will stop at nothing to get Allison out of the picture. Well on her way to becoming the next alpha’s mate, Kendall expects to rule the pack by Cade’s side even if it means teaming up with a rogue werewolf with an agenda of his own. Determined to get rid of Allison permanently, when Kendall and the rogue join forces, all hell breaks loose and no one in the pack is safe, especially not Cade and his true mate.
I really loved this book. It was a refreshing take on werewolves. I am glad that they are making it a series and I can’t wait to read Book 2. I haven’t read a good were tale in a long while. Allison (Alli) starts having all kinds of problems at school. All the girls start hating her, and all of the guys start harassing her. She gets into three separate fights and is afraid she about to get kicked out of school, even though she didn’t start any of this. Her mother eventually tells Allison and Aiden (her brother) that they are actually werewolves, who haven’t experienced the change yet. This is why Allison is having so many problems, and of course her perfect brother has just gotten more perfect. Their parents end up telling them that they are moving back in with her mother’s old pack in New Mexico, so they pack up everything and leave Houston (my hometown!) behind. Allison is excited by the new changes, and hopes she will finally have friends again. I don’t want to say anymore about the book, except there is a love triangle, which kind of pissed me off, but it worked out in the end. This book is full of drama, romance, and even a touch of danger. Were-lovers are in for a treat with this book.
