Derrick's a wolf shifter and successful lawyer, is coming back to the world after losing his son in a horrible car accident while he was driving. He has been going through the motions of life but not really engaging in it. He joins a running group that is coached by his friend and then paired together with Sydney.
Sydney is recovering from two emotionally damaging relationships. She is done with men for the moment. Sydney definitely decides she does not need anymore players. She decides that Derrick is a player so that definitely means that he is not for her. But thanks to her friend Jack that she would join his running group is going to put her decision to swear off men to the test.
These two are attracted to each other but Sydney can't see past her past to give Derrick a chance. He is persistent because for the first time since the accident he has found someone that he has feelings for. But there are other forces at work here and there is another person that is obsessed with Derrick that will do everything in her power to bring him down.
I enjoyed Wolf's Challenge and got wrapped up in their struggle to get past the things that were haunting both of them. They were both very insecure and had a hard time believing in each other. The only thing that I was surprised by was that I was expecting a different resolution between Derrick and the person who was obsessed with him, though there was a major answer that was answered and he could move on, I just felt that I wanted there to be more of a confrontation. But I loved the ending and to see the confidence that both Sydney and Derrick gain from each other.
Sydney is a single mom that had several bad experiences with past relationships, she doesn’t want to make the same mistakes, so she had a few rules to avoid certain situations. No players. That was the first rule and why she shoved Derrick off the instant she met him. Why? Because of his sunglasses and chatting with two girls before their running practice. That was my first eye rolling to the book, a man is allowed to chat with girls and wear sunglasses early in a Sunday morning, right?
The judgmental part, made it a bit hard to connect with Sydney and root for her, but I could deal with it, after all, her past was the reason why she was like that, and when we learn more about the details of what happened with her ex boyfriend, it makes it a bit more understandable.
Derrick was nice, the feelings of guilt and need for closure were present in all of his present actions, the fear of rejection and to lose it all again, made him retreat more than once, even when he knew what was the right thing for him. Reading from his point of view was heartwarming and I can say he is my favorite character of the story, along with Angel, Sydney’s adoptive daughter.
Things that made it hard to love the book: Editing issues, missing words, and repeated words, made it hard for the story to flow and distracted me more than once during the most inconvenient scenes. We all know we are not perfect, but a second round of editing could benefit the book a lot.
Reasons why I give the book 3 stars and not a lower rating: It’s not just a shifter romance, it also has a mystery to solve, a crazy bipolar woman to hate, an entire new world to discover, and it opens the doors for the next books, because wolf shifters are not the only strange creatures out there, there are several other kinds that are mentioned and briefly introduced during the story, and I would love to read more about them.
