Official Blurb: Misty has few expectations from life. Work, read, sleep. But when she hears from a complete stranger that she's actually a powerful, shape-shifting werewolf, her life changes forever.
Lindon believes he already had his shot at love long ago. And lost it. The tall, blond, sexy shifter is now only trying to keep his promise to his father by protecting Misty as she learns about her new place in the world and seeks to find a future mate.
The only problem: she'll be meeting all of her prospective suitors at one time, and in one place. All TEN of them. All hot, single, alpha males competing for her heart.
I'm sorry this was unfortunately disappointing for me. I expected a lot, being there was mention of so many super hot dudes Misty was going to meet. And that they'd be fighting for her and whatnot. But though that's generally accurate, there's other things that just drove me nuts.
Firstly, supposedly werewolves are 'naturally good looking'. Yeah, according to what standard? Second is that the really important parts relating to Misty's history and werewolves in general is summarized by Misty, in like a paragraph. That would have been better shown in conversations and the like I think, than just "let me sum up, now back to smexy wolves!" Third, she's told she'll be happy once she's married. If she WANTED to find a husband originally, I wouldn't doubt this. But she was just chilling in her life, not needing no man, ya follow me? Then there's a bit more, like the way these werewolves seem to have mating on their minds, but in this fakey reality show kind of way. Yes, they will 'win' if Misty picks them, but I can't stand how they don't seem to want to learn to care about her, they just wanna jump her bones and claim her to their own pack. Lindon acted like a child at times, but otherwise, he was a bit more real of a character. And he actually seemed interested in Misty for herself.
I've seen in reviews that there's much more to the story later on, but I don't think I can bring myself to continue it. I do need to find someone who has read it all the way through though, so I can find out which wolf gets picked. I’m rooting for Lindon, but I'll take Lock otherwise ;)
