Kurzbeschreibung

14. Februar 2014
Can an Alpha wolf convince his straight mate to give love a chance, before an unexpected enemy tries to rob them of all they hold dear...even their own lives? Eli Steele is a wolf without a pack. An invitation from his best friend, brings him to Grand Rapids, and a meeting with the local Alpha changes Eli's life in ways he ever expected. Kellan Reeves, Alpha of the Grand Rapids Pack, had lost hope of ever finding his mate until Eli came to him, looking for a pack. Realising Eli is his mate, he feels things couldn't be more perfect...discounting the angry pack Eli left behind. There's also the insignificant fact that Eli's not gay. It's nothing an Alpha wolf can't handle. While Eli struggles to understand his feelings for Kellan, an unexpected call for help has everyone on edge. As enemies move in and a horrifying plot is revealed, Kellan and Eli fight back, not only for themselves, but for the fate of all shifters.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good Bones But Needs Improvement 21. Februar 2014
Von Daniel Bowen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I read a lot of shifter paranormal stories. This one falls in the middle of the road for me. Yes it is well written, edited, and engaging. The beginning starts with a lot of promise. Eli left his father's pack 2 weeks ago and is looking up his childhood friend Jai, hoping to join Jai's pack. In those two weeks we learn Eli's wolf is 'breaking out' and becoming more difficult to control. Eli needs a pack to settle his wolf and he's about at the end of his rope.

SPOILERS AHEAD. You are warned:

Eli and Kellan meet at a gay nightclub. Kellan, the Alpha, knows that Eli is his mate but we don't read the same reaction from Eli. Sure his wolf is driving him crazy but again, he's packless and blames his wolf's reactions on that. Eli doesn't firmly know what's right in front of him, that Kellan is his mate. Attraction yes but mate. . . Well, it wasn't flat out and acknowledged. The 'straight' issue really isn't an issue or a concern when wolves are so focused on whoever their mate is. Eli never really goes into that instant mate, smell, you smell good, you smell like mate type reaction. I honestly didn't get that because it was so off from 'normal' instant wolf mate reactions. Kellan had the 'normal' mate reactions but not Eli.

The submissive / dominate wolf aspect was addressed and how this impacts Eli and Kellan's relationship. I've read that addressed in other books and while this theme was touched on and explained, it could have been better. Their relationship was too new, Kellan was too alpha, he was not willing to back down, and I am still not sure if Kellan was willing to bend his standards in dealing with Eli. The protection issue was touched on and the fight could have concluded that aspect. The result could have gone both ways-- Eli: Yes I can protect myself. Kellan: See, you need protection, you almost died! But no, no conclusion at this critical time.

And what in the heck is going on with Jai and Dylan? Has this been going on for years? Just how long has Jai been in this pack? Again, not normal mating behavior no matter what happened.

So Eli joins the pack. I think. He's sitting with Jai in front of the alpha and enforcers and is welcomed. Eli tells his story. Then the alpha goes crazy with jealousy and possessiveness and the mating dance begins. So. Did Eli join the pack? I know he did but it wasn't really touched on. It was assumed.

The focus of this story is mainly on Kellan and Eli's mating. There are a lot of interesting side stories that will continue in the next book. Actually, I wish some of these threads were tied up. The betrayal of an old fling. . . You know that little red head schemer is going to cause more trouble. Eli's father's pack is causing problems on a huge scale and even though that theme will over arch throughout the series, it would have been nice to have a few more details I find it hard to believe Eli, a beta, the second strongest wolf in his father's pack, second to the alpha, didn't know anything of his father's plans for 'taking over the packs' and breeding program. All those plans took time. Yet Eli had only been gone only 2 weeks and somehow his father's plans have all come together. Eli in the dark? Noah, his brother, not knowing? Just where are their heads in fulfilling their father's orders and pack involvement? Surely someone in their pack would alert them or complain or they'd overhear the enforcers. Wolves are horrid gossips and I can't see something that big not being talked about.

While I don't mind the mating sex. . .Page wise the sex was a bit more compared to the rest of the story. I would have liked a bit more, at least on Noah. OK. The suspend disbelief part: Noah phones Eli, said he'd be there in a hour. At that point he was fine. But then we hear Carl has captured and tortured him. In an hour Noah is tortured, cut, gouged, toe nails pulled, and left for dead. All by one man, Carl, an Enforcer. I can't see that type of torture done in an hour, not by a psycho like Carl. He'd draw it out and make it last. So Noah isn't talking. Was the betrayal from his father too deep and his wolf so damaged he's barely hanging on? Or is it that he's still tied to his father's pack and that bond needs to be broken? My mind was running ahead of the story -- I kept thinking Noah would find his fated mate in Kellan's pack and his mate would assist his recovery.

Then we have Ryker. Love that name. There's just enough on him to hope he gets more air time in the next book. The question I had about his involvement. . . Wasn't he severely injured during the fight yet somehow he's able to 'race' over to protect Eli? I realize they were in a bar but no one who is overpowered and losing a fight like Ryker was is able to race anywhere. I was amazed Eli was able to preform as well as he did - He was still recovering from a paralyzing drug. Even if he is a wolf he wasn't in top form yet did so well during that fight. A bit over the top? Maybe. But at that point I only expected him to give everything he had.

Three stars because I got too caught up in the side stories instead of mainly interested in Kellan and Eli. Sure their story was interesting but what happened around them was better. I expect an alpha, even a newly mated one, to get right on the threat and being there for Noah, getting that intel - Gear up and target the threats. . . Get on the phone, call the other alphas, alert them if they don't know and get going on this. Instead all that slides and sex is more important. -- Dan's Wife

3.0 von 5 Sternen One wolf is straight and the other gay, they are true mates so the gay Alpha has his work cut out - awkward! 24. Februar 2014
Von B ME - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I like the book, but there are some issues that stopped me giving it four stars.

Eli is a born Beta and he's left his home pack , run by his father, because of something he just can't stomach. Eli finds his friend, Jai, who had been expelled from the Pack for being gay. Jai has joined another Pack with a gay Alpha, Kellan. Eli has to ask Kellan to take him into his pack because he is weeks away from going rogue and having to be put down - he needs a pack.
He sees Kellan and his straightness comes immediately into question because, damn, that wolf if big and butch and beautiful. The attraction is mutual but Kellan has a type...twink. Eli is so not a twink and is livid when Kellan kisses him in front of everyone while still involved with the latest twink, Tracy. Obviously the path of the true mates is not going to run smooth. Between conniving twinks, psychotic wolves, a kidnapping, forced breeding and a danger to the pack how will the two mates come together?
I like the story but there is a big build up to the mating and then you are left thinking...is that it? Really? How easy. There is lots of peril and danger and obvious future story lines but where is the vengeance, the relationship building (not just the hot and heavy). And I know there is mating heat but really, Eli was straight(ish), he needs no time to adjust to his new role?
And for the love of a time-piece, stop saying people will be there in ten minutes. That was used twice and the first time they didn't arrive at all but within the supposed ten minutes a bunch of twinks take out a couple of wolves and then there is this whole plot that I won't ruin for you...how long is ten minutes? And then later, before the carnage, again we are told ten minutes before help arrives. I hate it when people are late!
Anyway, I do like the book and will be watching out for the next release of the Great Lakes Wolves. Good new series.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Fragments of a Story 16. März 2014
Von NuEngland - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
If I have never read a book that had me on the fence on whether I enjoyed it or not it was this one. I liked the concept from the start, which is why I decided to purchase the book, but I could tell by chapter one that it was going to be quicker than a flash flood. My first problem with the story is the mate-is-the-truimph card--scenario. In only their second meeting. THEIR SECOND meeting, Kellan Reeves is certain that Eli Steele (porn name if ever I heard one) is the most important person-love of his life. Then the alpha proceeds to showcase how much of alpha material he really isn't. If the meaning of alpha in this universe means being physically strong then Kellan should be battling for his position on the hour because just about everyone is strong in this story. He doesn't display any characteristics commonly found in a good leader--patience, forethought, selflessness, and self-control. As a matter of fact, the shifter who displays these characteristics is one of his Betas--Dylan.

The book was also startlingly confusing in some places. For example, when Eli finds out his brother has been bested by a sociopathic wolf by the name of Carl--at first it appears as though they are having a simple phone conversation but then the author starts describing the crazy look in Carl's eyes and I had to backtrack to make sure they were on a phone call and not Skype. How could Eli even see the man on a cellphone. What?

The book is full of cliches: huge, overly muscular alpa and smaller mate {check} deranged enemy who is instantly gay because the protagonist is male {check}, lust/love at first sight based on some mating instinct {check} constant misunderstanding {check} glossed over (non-existent) details of daily life/characterization/growth {check} unexplained additional powers/events until said events take place {check}

I skipped the 'climax' and went straight to the predictable ending: Sex to round out the show. In the end I have learned nothing about Eli except he is the stubborn mate of a questionable alpha. Kellan was a genetic carbon copy of an inflatable, overgrown, caveman alpha without the female damsel in distress.

In the end, I decided that I was standing firmly on the side of fence that did not enjoy the majority of the book. If it was infused with about 100 more pages that showed some character growth on the part of Kellan and some good old-fashioned 'getting to know you' stages I would probably put this on my keeper shelf. As it is, this story ended up being fragments of a bigger story that never happened.

2.0 von 5 Sternen A little of everything 4. März 2014
Von Me - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a very badly written book. I gave it two stars and not one only because I didn't see a whole lot of spelling errors. That being said, I could only make it through seventy-nine percent of the book. It was so up and down. The author tried to put to much information and it was extremely disjointed. When the MC was kidnapped, me conveniently turned into a half wolf. Nothing was said about this earlier when describing the characters. I never did understand why their wolves wanted to break free all the time. To many people were introduced. I didn't know who the author was writing about. It was strange.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Off to a good start 20. Februar 2014
Von Island Lover - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a good story with a good premise and a good main villain who's related to our MC. Hence, it's a great dynamic set-up as fighting against family usually makes for a great story. There were some things said by this story's villain, who is a lackey for the main villain, that appalled me, but I think it's a good thing that I had such a strong reaction b/c it means I want to be there when the main villain goes down. The two MCs have good chemistry and we meet a few characters whose story I'm interested in reading. The Alpha was a bit possessive and heavy-handed in the beginning, but he has a strong mate who made him realize he could take care of himself. Hence, no strong Alpha with a wimpy mate who acts like a damsel in distress. There are some good sex scenes, though they may be too long-winded, and the wolves can do partial shifts in this story. The reason I did not give this story five stars is because it's too prose heavy. Tapping a lot times on my kindle and still reading prose is just annoying and I recommend the author get a better balance been dialogue and prose for the next story. It's well-written, well-paced and well-priced. Recommend.
