“ARC given for an honest review”
Owen Harding hasn’t shifted since he was in Agent Smith’s experimental cages—the only thing this ex-Army Texas boy is afraid of is what kind of beast he’s become. But with a hate group issuing more threats against the Wilding pack than you can shake a stick at, Owen’s doing what he can as a personal bodyguard. If only the Wilding girl he’s tasked with keeping alive wasn’t so damn sexy… and completely off limits.
Nova Wilding’s father was assassinated, leaving her a gaming company to run, a new game to release, and a pack full of wolves who want her for a mate… including a beta who’s determined to have Nova and her company. Choosing someone outside the pack will tear it apart, but Nova can’t stop watching the hot shifter who’s keeping watch over her.
When Nova barely escapes an attempt on her life, she finds herself in Owen’s arms… but her sexy new bodyguard is absolutely the wrong man at the wrong time. While Nova fights to keep her father’s business afloat, and Owen fights to keep her alive, the Wolf Hunter is playing a dangerous new game that might destroy them both.
Owen Harding was surrounded by wounded warriors.
By now I’ve completely jumped on the Alisa Wood bandwagon. But I was very disappointed with this first book in the Wilding Pack Wolves Series. It just wasn’t up to the wonderful other series that her other books are. I know that you can read these books stand-alone but I really felt that I came through in the middle of a series rather than the first book. I felt that it was a little slow in the beginning and I almost didn’t finish the book just cause I lost interest in the story half the time. But I was glad that I did, it did pick up towards the end of the book.
I couldn’t really stand Nova though, she just go way annoying as the book went on. I never understood why she submitted to Brad in the first place. Or even let him blackmail her into it. It just never made much sense to me. I loved Owen but I felt that he could have done better for a partner than Nova. I think that took away from the whole experience. And it would have been more enjoyable if I finished reading the full River Side series before diving into the spinoff.
