Kurzbeschreibung

Kane Matthews, Alpha of his small wolf pack in Cloverleah has been raised to believe that mates are not possible for gay men and has lived his life accordingly. Kicked out of his home pack years before because of his sexual orientation Kane has built a solid and comfortable life for himself in the small town of Cloverleah.
Imagine his surprise when an unscheduled visit to the small town's diner unleashes a flood of emotions in the man he didn't think possible - not least of all, lust. But finding out it is possible for wolf shifters to have gay mates is just one of the things that Kane has to overcome if he is to have the forever future he has been hoping for.

Shawn Bailey never expected to find his mate. He is just too different - an "Other" who has the power to instill fear in any other shifter. After spending ten years on the run from his Alpha father he spends most days just trying to stay alive. When a
chance encounter brings him face to face with his mate Shawn has to decide if the man in front of him is worth staying for.

But with hunters, Alpha challenges, Kane's parents and a smitten Alpha from another pack all interfering in Kane and Shawn's budding romance, not to mention some surprising answers about Shawn's own unique talents can these two true mates find the happily ever after they are looking for?

Warning: Some people may find the content of this book objectionable. Includes m/m, graphic sexual situations, a short BDSM scene, strong language and shifter/magic themes.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Do yourself a favor and don't buy it... 19. Mai 2014
Von Querleser
Format:Kindle Edition
Uninspired story, stupid storyline, dumb dialogues and not a single interesting or nice character... It was a really boring read and hey, it wasn't even cheap!
Normally, I really like shifter stories, but this one is an exception, a big one.
I am sure it's not a surprise that I warn you away - not only from this book but the whole series.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great start to a new series 9. März 2014
Von Gina - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The Cloverleah Pack is a small pack of gay wolf shifters that have been shunned by their home packs. Kane is the Alpha and Griff is his cousin who is also an alpha but chooses to be Kane's second in command. The pack members have been told that gay wolves can not have true mates. They believe this but still have a hope that maybe what they have been told is not true. They find hope that they will one day find their true mates when Kane meets his true mate, Shawn who is called an "Other" because he is different - he has magic. Shawn has been running for his life for years when first his father, and then his uncle, send hunters to kill him. He ends up in Cloverleah, meets Kane and for the first time in his life, has someone love him and a pack that accepts him. The love, support and acceptance Shawn receives from his Kane and his new pack give him he determination to face his pursuers.

The story is hot (the new mating thing), kept me reading and interested in learning the other pack member stories. The Runaway Cat is book 2 and is the story of Griff (Kane"s #2) and Diablo an undercover FBI agent. I immediately bought the sequel and am looking forward to reading book #3 - When No Doesn't Cover It - the story of Scott (Cloverleah pack member) and Damien, the Alpha of one of the largest packs that has formed an alliance with the Cloverleah pack.

I highly recommend this series. This series is now an automatic buy for me. I am also going to look for other books by Lisa Oliver.

2.0 von 5 Sternen great story, horrible editing 12. März 2014
Von Nichole - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed the story a lot, but the editing was horrible. I couldn't find the name of the publisher, so I assume it is self-published. Please, please have someone who knows the difference between possessive and plural edit future manuscripts. The mistakes detracted from what was in fact a great story with engaging characters. I would buy another book by this author, as long as it through a publishing house. I think the author has a lot of potential and spins a nice tale...if you can deal with frequent and basic grammar mistakes.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not Happy I Spent Any $$ On This 1. Mai 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I was looking forward to reading a really good wolf/bonding story but this wasn't it. I would say the story is about at the level of a moderately good fanfiction I could read for free on any number of websites.

The plot just barrels through any source of conflict/tension/angst in a very unsatisfying fashion and the magic element was way over the top. At times I felt that I was reading a script for "Bewitched" or "I dream of Jeannie".
Also if a story takes place in the USA the writer should research appropriate slang and common phrases instead of using British versions. I also thought the prose was a bit clunky at times and did not read smoothly.
I wish I hadn't spent any money on this and I certainly will not be buying any future books in the series.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great start to the series. 12. März 2014
Von HLeonard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I really enjoyed the first book of the Cloverleah Pack series, and was ecstatic that the second book was out so quickly after the first. Kane and Shawn are an awesome couple. I love how they are both strong in their own right, but as a couple they are a serious force to be reckoned with. I definitely loved Shawn's "otherness", and thought it was great how his powers were basically unlimited, but being the kind of person he is, he never used them with malintent. Even when he was punishing the bear shifter. He could have easily ripped him limb from limb, and for what the bear did to Kane he would have been well within his rights in the shifter community. However, he held back and allowed for Damien's pack to seek retribution. His sense of right and wrong, and his protectiveness of those he cares about make him a perfect Alpha Mate. With all that has happened in his past, you would expect him to be jaded and hardened, but he's the opposite. He's compassionate and has good morals, but he's not girly or effeminent by any means. He's even a Master Dom. Kane definitely has the alpha/dominant thing going on, but he is also not your typical alpha that rules his pack like a king. Though his pack is small, each member has their opinions and they know they can express them freely. They operate more like a family than a pack, with Kane as their big brother figure. This novel was action packed, and while the romance was definitely front and center, there was much more going on than just a lot of sex scenes with a little plot thrown in. It was also nice to see Kane's family start to turn over a new leaf and accept same sex matings as not only possible but celebrated.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Setting It Aside...For Now 1. April 2014
Von Rickyg1974 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I usually give any book I purchase until the 50% to pull me in, grab my attention, and keep me reading. While Ms. Oliver is obviously a talented storyteller, the writing in this effort needs a lot of work. I'm not calling this a DNF review...it's more of a "DNF yet" one. The reason being is I'd really like to find out happens to these characters. I just need to step away before the flaws in the book completely overwhelm me.

Before I get to the flaws...some bright spots. As I said above, the story Ms. Oliver is attempting to tell is pretty engaging. Shaun's backstory parallels with that of a lot gay teens even in this day and age. He seems the most thought out and well developed character, and it's quite easy to empathize with him. In addition, the world-building is a fresh take on traditional werewolf lore. Though the logic falls flat sometimes. For instance, Shaun's magic seems really advanced (i.e. able to materialize objects out of thin air, healing, etc.) so I couldn't understand why he wasn't able to dispatch the hunters without breaking a sweat. Despite this I thought, overall, the myths and paranormals within the book weren't all that bad.

As for what stopped me reading at the 50% mark...first and foremost is the dialogue. I think another reviewer has mentioned that the story is set in the American west, but the characters speech patterns, dialect, and slang are decidedly British. The disconnect is jarring and will cause you to do a double-take. For a while I tried to internally translate every "arse" into an "ass"...every "lounge" into a "living room"...every "mate" into a "whatever?!?", but it just got really tiring. Also, the conversation between the characters doesn't flow naturally, and comes off a bit stilted and simplistic in some place.

Another point is the editing. While I applaud anyone with the guts to write a novel and put it out into the world for consumption, some thought to editing must be paid before doing so. For every grammatical and punctuation error that can be skimmed over while still staying within the flow of the story, there are 5 that hit you over the head and cause you to re-read whole passages for clarity.

Finally, it seemed every chapter began and ended with a sex scene (with another thrown in the middle for good measure). I'm all for some hot man-on-man humpin', but the sheer quantity (paired with the aforementioned mental gymnastics in translating some of the slang) got to be tedious. Also, some of the sex scenes just didn't make sense considering the events that bookmarked them. For instance, the pack finds out a gang of hunters is trying to kill Shaun (after having just shot him), and Shaun and Kane decide it'd be a great time for a bike ride and romp in a mountaintop field?!?

Like I said, I haven't finished reading The Reluctant Wolf yet. Please take this review for what it's worth as you're deciding whether to dive into it or not. I can say that this is the first book I've ever purchased that made me research Amazon's return/refund policy. The major reason for that is I believe this book is EXTREMELY overpriced at $5 (Kindle version). Ms. Oliver should consider lower the price tag to $2.99 to make it more palatable.
