Goodreads Synopsis:

WELCOME TO ALPHAVILLE, where the she-wolves and alpha-males play. . .for keeps.

Renny Landry is a wolf on the run. Pursued by a shapeshifting stalker and his slobbering pack of killer coyotes, she is forced to flee her job as a librarian to find sanctuary in the wooded hills of Alpha, Washington. A well-secluded safe space for troubled shifters, Alpha is Renny’s last hope. But the first person she meets there is a gorgeous alpha male with fiery eyes, fierce tattoos, and one ferocious appetite—for her…

Mick Fischer thought he left his past behind when he moved to Alpha. But fate has a way of biting him in the tail when a female wolf shows up on his property. Wounded, desperate—and disarmingly hot—Renny brings out the snarling, protective alpha beast in Mick like no other woman he’s known. Can these two haunted, hunted wolves manage to mate for life…even as the deadliest past demons howl at their heels? 

Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

To be honest, I requested this book on Netgalley because of the title. It makes ma laugh every single time. Moving past the title thought, I am kind go excited to see what happens in this book. It has been  while since I have read a werewolf book.

Thank you so much to the publishers and Netgalley for providing me with a copy of this book! Just a small disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book in exchange for an honest review. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own

Writing Thoughts;

The writing in this book was good. The dialogue was entertaining and natural. I only had one problem and that was that there wasn't always enough detail. Sometimes there enough detail to create a vivid image but then there times where there wasn't enough detail. I really liked how the author planned out her chapters. She kept me wanting to read the book.

Plot Thoughts:

This book followed the traditional werewolf story arc. But the author knew just how to make it unique and her own. I liked how we started with action and ended off with some action. It kept the story fast paced and entertaining. There were moments where I felt like the meetings continued for a little too long. Werewolf books always have problematic elements such as marking another person without their consent and the whole idea that women are meant to submissive. While the whole marking thing was without consent, I liked how the author didn't make the women in this book submissive. Instead she empowered them to an extent.

Character Thoughts:

Renny was a very cautious character but she was also very caring. She knew what she wanted and she went for it. However, there were moments where she contradicted herself. Molly was probably my favourite character. She was funny but she stood up for her friends when it was called for.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was interesting and despite being able to guess what might happen, I was pleasantly surprised every now and again. The writing in this book was food but every now and again there wasn't enough detail. The plot followed a traditional werewolf book arc but the author made it unique. The characters were interesting and each had their own quirks but I liked Molly more than anyone else. This book does contain sex scenes so I would not recommend this for young viewers. Thank you so much to Netgalley and the publishers for providing me with a copy.

Yours in Reading,
