Dog Mountain is just like any other small town — peaceful and uneventful. Well, that is if peaceful means wolves howling all night, and uneventful means it’s overrun by pesky werewolves, then yes, Dog Mountain is just your average small town.

Jade Shaw has spent the last two years avoiding the pack. But when Aidan Collins moves to town, avoiding the dogs doesn’t seem possible. The pack wants him just as much as she does.

Determined to keep him out of the pack’s grasp, Jade does everything she can to gain his attention. Little does she know, Aidan is in deeper with the pack than she could have imagined, and competing for his attention is a deadly game, one she may not want to win.


For starter’s I LOVE anything and everything wolfie, but then I come across this little gem where in a small town called Dog Mountain werewolves live among humans, what? No hiding, they basically run the place. This was soo intriguing as book and movies do annoy me with all the secrecy and who doesn’t want to live in a town with werewolves?!

Jade Shaw the headstrong and maybe too stubborn protagonist lives in this town with her mum and dad but unlike everybody else that worships the pack and wants to be apart of it, she wants nothing to do with them. She lost her best friend Dom to them 2 years ago and hasn’t forgiven them since. That is until Aidan Collins comes into town and the pack are doing their best to recruit him. When Jade meets Aidan, she assumes he’s human and has no idea about the werewolves and refuses to let the pack have him, while trying to convince herself it’s for his own safety she secretly wants him too… but Aidan is no ordinary human, he’s the new Alpha. I was literally dying by this point, I love all the secrets and lies and tension and angst, oh the angst!

I like most other people HATE HATE HATE Insta-love, however I do tend to have a little loophole. In humans I can’t bare it, it’s a quick fire way to ruin a book but when you’re talking about werewolves and this attraction is all primal and instinct, oh I devour it. Humans: NO, Wolves: YES, it’s plausible. Also the take on werewolves in this book is outstanding, it’s not like anything I’ve ever read, I assumed it would be like Maggie’s Shiver series but this was more in depth, tackling issues about mates, shifting, alpha’s, beta’s, wolf games, submission. Apart from being heavy on the romance there's lots of werewolf action!

But back to my new boyfriend Aiden, oh you guys SO MANY FEELS. He’s the Alpha so he’s obviously crazy, dominant, gorgeous, and sexy but he also has this soft side that just melts my heart, he clearly wants the best for his pack but first he must make it through the games to decide his new Alpha female mate. Maybe I’m just a taaad bias because I really do love a romance with lots of tension, angst and werewolves but seriously, DEREK HALE, COLE ST. CLAIR, ALCIDE HERVEAUX, JACOB BLACK, need I go on?

This ending was sort of cliffhanger, either way I did not care for it but obviously I’m buying book 2 now because I need it! Also take a deep breath and don’t throw your book/tablet at the wall when Jade is being a complete butthead, like I said too stubborn! I was going to take a star off for a few annoyances but I was up until 2am reading this book, this hasn't happened since Throne of Glass ahh good times! and I was soo excited to get up, finish the book and write my review.. I clearly loved this book!

This book is absolutely perfect for romance and paranormal lovers and to sweeten the deal this book is FREE ON AMAZON AND iBOOKS, so no excuse… well at least give it a try if this is your type of thing.
