When a wolf mates with a human, the child is nearly always a wolf. Briana was raised as a werewolf, but then puberty hit and she never changed. She’s persuaded a few wolves to bite her, but it never took. At nineteen, she’s going to give it a final try. This time, she’ll ask someone who was bitten instead of being born to it, to see if it makes a difference.
She grew up welcome in the Pack until she was branded a human. Her developing teenage psyche was wounded by their rejection, and she holds nothing but ill will for the Pack and all it stands for. However, it’s fine for a human to glare at the Alpha and tell him he isn’t the boss of her. Trying it as a wolf is another story. She’s determined to make a go of it as a lone wolf, but Randall — the local Alpha — has other ideas, despite the fact she’s property of his brother’s motorcycle club.
Briana was raised to be a werewolf and she finally feels whole, but the transition is different for everyone. She understands supernatural politics, but she’s going to have to maneuver through the highest levels of them as a brand new wolf still struggling for control.
“Careful what you Ask For” by Candace Blevins. This book was an odd pairing of almost every genre of writing. Shifters, check. Motorcycle club, check. Major alphas, check. BDSM, triple check. I think the only thing it was missing was historical romance, but oddly I think it worked. It was like watching a major accident without injuries, you really want to see what happens but your not proud of yourself for watching. It was also so very different then almost every other shifter story or series I have read. Briana is a recently turned wolf shifter who’s trying to get control of her wolf. She was supposed to be only 19, but I found her to much more maturer than that. Patrick is a newly re-located lone wolf, who is looking to become alpha of a struggling pack. While first protecting and then assisting Briana gain control of her wolf, they fall in love and begin to rule the new pack together. There was a lot going on in this story and a lot of players. This is the third in this series, but I hadn’t read any of the earlier books or the MC series, so some of the inter-relationships may have made more sense if I had. I’d also say that if your sensitive to BDSM you may want to reconsider this story, because although much of the sex was hot it got kinda cringe worthy at times. I rate this story 4 hearts. This story left me feeling like there was more to come and more that I was missing from other stories, but I’m not sure if I’ll go searching for the others.
