I thought that the book felt very much like a lighter JR Ward. The use of the aggressive alpha male (in this case also the alpha wolf), the strong bonding, the incorporation of the characters' scent into their attraction (though that's to be expected from a werewolf), the fact that the characters mentally stated "mine" in much the same manner, and the use of odd punctuation, such as She.is.mine., to make a point explicit. Despite the similarities the story does stand on its own two...uh 4 feet...er paws.
There were a few editorial issues, most common in the sex scenes (or sexually tense scenes). I could almost imagine some poor editor blushing through them without enough attention to detail due to their own innocent embarrassment. I can often overlook such things, but in the middle of the most pivotal points in the book makes it difficult.
I read it in an evening and despite not generally enjoying first person or present tense narratives I don't consider my time wasted.
Dead bodies are showing up, and Anna is the last one to see them alive. She has to prove her innocence and tame the wolf who bites first and asks questions never. Cliffhanger.
Before I start waxing philosphical, here's a short synopsis: Bitten by a werewolf and left to die, Anna was saved by Adam, the alpha of the pack in Big Horn Mountains, Wyoming. There is attraction between them, but Adam is an alpha and purebred, while Anna is the lowest werewolf in the totem pole and "made", and thus according to tradition, cannot be mate to an alpha. So, how will they find their HEA?
For those of us who follow the werewolf lore, "Taming the Wolf" actually reinforces all the "lore" that had been written. Author Stephanie Wilson took one step further by making the werewolves more human because she put in the element of prejudice and "class" or pecking order. We have always known about the alpha and the beta, but after them, we don't really know how the other wolves are placed in the pecking order. Ms. Wilson took the time to place everyone in the pack. And for that alone, the book is worth 5 stars. Of course, the mystery/suspense was also worth it, so is the romance between Adam and Anna.
The book is rated M for Mature due to violence and sex.
hmmmmm..... I want to op on the 2nd book! LOL
How distracted did I get?
Who doesn't love an Alpha wolf? <3 Poor Anna gets turned to a werewolf and she so strong and spunky that she has issues with not looking in the Alpha's eyes and staring him down and the alpha female. I LOVED Anna. She had the strength and with that is my fave in a female lead character. Add in Adam the Alpha......yum.....
Taming the Wolf is an action/love packed book that I thoroughly enjoyed and will have a hard time waiting for the next. I was able to finish the story in 2 days even with 2 decent shifts at work and a twin with the stomach flu!
And there's SO MUCH to fangirl about!
I enjoyed, most of all, the twist in folklore and the daring scenes Nelson brought to this series. After reading hundreds of books, your taste starts to change and when you read that ONE book that hits the mark, you're so sure you're never letting it go! TAMING THE WOLF hit home for me -- I loved Anna's personality and her badass exterior. The very smoldering scenes between her and Adam were just HOT HOT HOT! Literally, someone needs to add a CAUTION sign to this book. Just so HOT.
The story line of the book is rather smooth, and smooth in the way that I didn't expect what happened to happen. I was really left with an open jaw by the end, my heart practically dangling from a line as I flipped pages. And, side note, this just isn't the kind of book you want to be reading when your kindle dies on you. I threw a fit for all of five minutes before I found my charger and started reading again...
And when you dive for the charger, you know something's good!
The love triangle? Oh, gawsh. Someone get me a drool bib! Nelson really kicked it up a notch with this new series and I've learned the second installment will be releasing in March! Think I can wait that long? Hell no. Am I going to try? Of course -- with eager anticipation!
5 BRIGHT STARS!
