This is a 2-in-1 shape shifter romance.
Feral Passions by Kate Douglas
Cherry's sister Christa and her BFF Stephanie convince Cherry to go on a week vacation to a resort named Feral Passions. The resort only books six spots and only for women per week. It is also a preserve for wolves. Traker Jakes and his pack have opened Feral Passions to find their mates. When Cherry's group arrives, Brad and Cain are immediately attracted to Cherry. Cherry has had one experience with a boy in high school who was using her to get a good grade in a math class. After he posted pictures on the internet, she does not trust men. She starts to trust Brad and Cain while noticing that the wolves that hang out with her, and have their same eye color, are never around when Brad and Cain are with her.
I enjoyed this novel. The sex scenes were hot and part of the ending was unexpected. I like that it was a group of characters that got their HEA I am hoping that this is the first in a series.
The Alpha's Mate by A. C. Arthur
So, I am revising my review. When I first read the book, I was relatively new to shifter novels and found this one was way different. I decided to go back and read it. And, was I blown away.
There isn't a cookie cutter mold for shifter novels. Every author has a different take. I love the spin off of Greek mythology and the different types of shifter packs. I love how the characters have more of an edge. Kira was an awesome, strong alpha female.
I received this ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you.
