I enjoyed this book but didn’t love it. The series has potential, and I will continue to book 2 before I make my decision. Bella, a red wolf lost her entire family to a fire. A gray alpha wolf took her in to his pack. The gray wolf was actually the pack leader and wants to make Bella his mate. Bella runs away from the pack, and years later finds herself locked in the wolf den at the local zoo. Delvyn, another wolf rescued her before and again rescues her from the zoo. Bella and Delvyn love each other but know that their love is forbidden due to the alpha pack leader’s claim to mate. There are several obstacles that this couple must face.
At times, the book dragged. The beginning of the book was slow along with the lack of character building. Bella was a lupus garou and the author made sure that the reader knew this. You could find lupus garou on every other page. I wanted to throw my Ereader across the room! The overall plot was good but there was little world building. Returning to the pack was fast but there were several chapters of hot sex scenes between Bella and Delvyn almost to the point of changing the genre to erotica.
I am hoping that the next book does not discuss the “lupus garou” or have Bella as a continuation. When I think of Bella, of course, “Twilight” comes to mind. This Bella is nothing like Bella Swan.
