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 seriously love when I get books and I have no idea what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised by this book. From the blurb you can see that Alli is a werewolf but has no idea until her parents finally come clean after she's been in some trouble in school. Her and her brother both get the surprising news and a couple of weeks later their parents decide that they're going to move to the town where her mothers pack resides. As soon as they get there Alli realizes things are going to be different.
First of all, I love Alli. I know I shouldn't but I love the fact that she's totally kicking some ass. Those girls at her old school are treating her like crap for something she can't even control. It's not her fault that all the guys think she's hot. I'm glad she doesn't just lay down and let them walk all over her. Once they make the move I feel even worse for her. She's automatically attracted to Cade but it goes way beyond that and she has no idea what's going on. Cade feels the same thing but he's still dating Kendall. Not to mention, Cade has been warned away from Alli by his own father and pack leader.
Alli and Cade have things stacked up against them from the beginning. This book isn't so cut and dried. Their romance isn't the only thing going on here. I think this is a really good book. I will definitely be picking up book two in this series.
