The Quick and Dirty: 
Etti is a human that tattoos shifters. When a pack of rogue wolves show up and wreak havoc at her shop, one of the pack’s members saves her from the ruthless alpha by pretending to claim her. Upon biting her he realizes that she truly is his mate. They have to keep on the run from the pack until she figures out how to shift but there are certain secrets her parents have kept hidden from her that will change everything.


I loved the premise of the story and the introduction to the series. My issue was with the decision that had to be made between stopping the serum and letting herself drift away. That felt like a no brainer and an odd predicament to be in. I couldn’t see a scenario where would someone the latter. I did find the introduction of the secondary villain (the people who injected in the first place) to be an interesting twist. Picking up the next book this week so I can find out what happens next!

** I was provided an Audible version of this book in return for a voluntary and honest review.**

She’s his mate and he will risk everything to protect her.

The death of his brother forces Greyson West to take his rightful spot in a pack of outlaw wolf shifters. He accepts his fate in order to protect his family, but when a dangerous encounter brings him face-to-face with his mate, he finds himself risking everything for love. The only problem. . . she’s human.

Etti Blackwell is a smart-mouthed tattoo artist with a fierce independent streak. So when a sexy wolf shifter turns her world upside down, she doesn’t take kindly to it. Greyson may have rescued her, but she doesn’t trust him. It’s his fault she’s on the run from werewolves!

As the pack’s savage Alpha closes in, Grey does the unthinkable to keep Etti safe, triggering a curse so powerful it may just cost them both their lives. Unless . . . Can Grey win Etti’s heart and prove he’s her mate before the next hunter’s moon?
