Review Source: Karina’s Books

It’s hard enough being an undergraduate student, an intern at Downtown Manhattan’s police station, and a bouncer at a local bar. Add her now ex-boyfriend who recently dumped her for the school’s resident bimbo—oh, and she’s a werewolf.

Mackenzie Grey meets her match when she is kidnapped by the Brooklyn Pack and tossed between Sebastian and Jonah—the Alpha and the Beta. Being a lone-wolf in the city is dangerous, and now that the Pack has found her, so can every supernatural being in the Tri-State area. And not even her sarcastic, smart mouth can get her out of this.
When a string of kidnappings involves Mackenzie in supernatural politics, she questions her new acquaintances and finds unlikely allies. Can she escape Pack law and keep her freedom—or will she be condemned to an unwanted path?

I wasn’t sure what to expect at first since I’ve read quite a few Werewolf novels, however this really was a great read, I finished it last night before bed. I simply couldn’t tear my eyes away. The entire time I was reading this novel I had a shit eating grin on my face, because I could totally relate to Kenz and Amy.

After all, it’s awkward with hot guys around, it’s more awkward when you feel odd within your skin since you are so different and still more hot guys around. Great drama, some fighting and a great mystery is weaved into all at once. This author is now one of my ‘must buy all books’ and I look forward to the second novel in this series, I eagerly await it! I also particularly enjoyed how she handled her changes and everything involved since essentially she starts out alone, without someone to help her and that’s the reaction a normal person would have if they found themselves changing and had no one to ask but google.

I need the next installment, seriously though…when is it coming out?!
