Now this particular one, I thought that after I signed up for it that it was not what I was really into it at this time. I had been reading a lot of YA - quick reads of late. But I was wrong - this was exactly what I needed to change my whole reading course for a while.
Greenridge Pack princess, Reagan Summers, will protect her wolves at all cost. After finding out about his illegal activities that harmed so many innocents, she kills the Alpha Wolf her father arranged for her to marry. Afraid and on the run, she turns to the only person she trusts, her true mate, Logan.
Birchwood Pack Alpha, Logan Webb, watched Reagan walk out of his life over ten years ago. When she contacts him needing help, something in her voice puts his wolf in full protection mode. But seeing her in the flesh wakes a raw, primal desire long buried.
No. No. Bile rose, threatening to force Reagan’s lunch to make a gruesome return. The snow-white walls of her home closed in around her and the air seemed colder. How had she not known?
Because they weren’t true mates.
She stared at the open journal as fury built inside her, putting her wolf further on edge. The names neatly hand written in black ink blurred. For ten years, she’d done all she could to protect the wolves of Greenhedge, the least she could do since being forced to mate the male who became Alpha—a title rightfully hers. All her efforts were wasted. The bastard sold packmates to a rogue Pack to be made into monster assassins in exchange for what? She didn’t know. She sure in the hell didn’t see any extra money go into the run down den.
Fucking, power-hungry bastard.
The front door swung open, slamming into wall. A low growl went through her as she meet the poor excuse of an Alpha’s stare. Lifting the journal, she shook it at him. “You lied to me.”
He stalked toward her, his eyes glowing with his wolf. “You are out of place, Mate.”
Was she? She thought not.
“My place is protecting my Pack from monsters like you.” Anger had all but consumed her. It was one thing to blackmail her into the loveless mating and slap her around, but to hurt her Pack?
Mason stopped before her, then gripped a handful of her hair, and jerked her to him. Pain shot through her skull. She gritted her teeth and focused on his energy, his Alpha power. As his mate, she had the ability to use his strengths. Something he hadn’t realized she could do. Or maybe he thought she didn’t know how.
“You have crossed the line for the last time, asshole.”
He bared his teeth and flipped her so he could shove her torso on the desk. Her vision blinked out as her head hit the wood. When he started to tug her pants down, she roared and jerked her head up, slamming it into his nose.
Crying out, he released her and stumbled away a few steps. Not wasting time, she shifted into her wolf faster than she ever had and lunged at him, tackling him to the ground. Her wolf had taken over and for once the woman relished in it.
The thought that it was unfair to fight another while they were in human form was a whisper. One her wolf ignored. Mason Doyle had fucked over his last victim.
I was a little disappointed by this one. Only in how it was just a small snippet. I wanted to know more about the characters. I wanted to know more of their back history and what happened going forward. I just plain wanted more. I really did not like the evil Alpha she was forced to be with. I wanted to know more of this whole story and will looking forward to reading more. I definitely realize though that this is not for the YA crowd (as if you could not tell). So I think that it was a nice change of pace for me. Overall, I would give this a 3-1/2 stars as this is entices the reader to read more.
