About the Author
Melissa was born and raised in Arizona, she’s spent her entire life living across the southern half of the state. She’s found that, along with her husband and three children, she prefers the small towns and rural life to feeling packed into a city. She started reading at a very young age, and her love for series started early, as the first real books she remembers reading is the Boxcar Children series by Gertrude Chandler Warner. Through the years she’s found that there’s little she won’t read, and her tastes vary from westerns, to romance, to sci-fi / fantasy and Horror. She’s been writing since 2009, and enjoys nearly every minute of it.

For me, I was disappointed by the plodding nature of the prose, and how slowly the plot advanced. This may not be an issue for you as a reader. My personal bottom line: story - B+, writing - C-.
The rest of the book is slow moving as she learns to adapt to a new way of life and learn new skills. I enjoyed the book as a good story that slowly evolved. I felt the author developed the characters very well. Nicki was a young woman who was raised in a loving adoptive home and had a supportive family. It is nice to see that in a book. I was interested in the characters and liked the way they interacted.
However, there was little conflict in the book, mainly many pages learning about the characters. I agree with other reviewers that too many things were repeated too often, such as when Deven was asked about what he'd been doing for ten years; the author could have told the story once, or twice, and then said Deven told them his story. I agree too with the reviewer who suggested that if one found they could shape shift into a wolf and run in the desert it would seem one would be out there more often practicing and enjoying it!
And after the great incident in the barn the couple should have run together soon.
Unfortunately, as often happens with indie Kindle books, this book ended at a place designed for us to want to buy the next book.
In addition, the grammar police should issue tickets! This book appears not to have been proofread. There are missing words in places. There are more than a few spots where editing has gone awry. Then there is that old problem of where to use me or I. I think that's akin to drunk driving, or writing. Grrr.
There are repetitive sections where she describes the same events multiple times. When Nickie turns into a wolf for the first time, you get the scene first hand, then she describes it to her best friend, then she tells the whole story again to her new alpha.There are long, overly detailed descriptions. How many times do you need a detailed breakdown of how someone puts on a pair of shoes, puts together a plate of food, gets ready for a shape-change, gets into her locked apartment and so-on.
About a third of this book should have been deleted.
