Content warnings: attempted rape, attempted murder, death, violence, killing

I received a free ARC of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

This was an interesting story. As opposed to most shifter type stories, this one was from the female perspective and had her born as a shifter rather than being turned into one.

I’m fairly over the overprotective brother trope. Or overprotective father. Or overprotective male over female character. It’s tired and way overdone in books. I’d like to see a female character portrayed and treated as completely capable and competent. I mean yeah, main female in this was shown to be definitely competent and capable but EVERYONE underestimates her and treats her like she’s just some helpless damsel. Including her brother and male pack leader who have made sure that her and her friends know how to protect themselves.

That all said, I did actually enjoy this. It was fun to read. It was fluffy-turn-your-brain-off reading. Which is always an enjoyable thing to read. At least for me it is. I’m not big on the whole he was turned without his consent thing but that’s more of a minor thing in comparison to the above.

And I liked the idea that the “bad guys” are helped by grandparents that are of the unassuming kinds of people. That was a nice change of pace.
