However, a few days later Bailey runs into Ryker and faints. Ryker knows Bailey from childhood. But Bailey doesn’t remember a thing. After Bailey wakes up and talks to Ryker, it turns out that they are mates and Ryker has known for a while. But circumstances kept him from her.
Bailey learns that everything she thought was true about her life was a lie. So now she and Ryker must find the answers together. And they face many obstacles along the way.
I really did enjoy this book. I was going to rate it a 3.5 stars but I figured I’d round it up to 4 stars. I liked Bailey and Ryker and the secondary cast.
I did think Ryker and Bailey was a cute couple, but I wish that we’d have got to see them together a bit more. I would have liked to seem them get to know each other and get a feel of them being a couple. I know in wolf books it very common for them to get together immediately, but for this book I think I would have liked to get to know there characters. I still really enjoyed it but, something was just missing between the Ryker and Bailey for me to love it. And another thing that I wished would have been done a bit different would have been the fight scene. I think it was resolved a little too easy. Just my opinion. I wasn’t horrible or anything, but it could have lasted longer.
I also liked how that some Wolfs are considered Royals. It has to do with their blood. And that they aren’t very common anymore. Most people think that they are extinct.
As for the secondary cast, I can say that I loved them. They people the author want to you to like you most likely will, and then the ones that you’re supposed to hate, you will. She did a fantastic job on those parts of the book. She also did a good story line. And I do want to read the next book.
Overall, it is a pretty solid read. I did really enjoy it. I only had a few small issues with the book as I mentioned above. I also liked how she had witches and other supernatural creatures in this series. I am really excited for Sabastian. I’m hoping his book will be next.
There was a time when I lived for the pack, when I would do anything to save my people. The white wolves were slowly reducing in number, and now everyone was desperate, struggling to make ends meet before we were wiped into extinction. I was twenty-four years old, and a daughter of the Northern pack alpha. It was my duty to continue my lineage. The only problem was, there were no other unmated alphas around other than my best friend, Sebastian, and the supreme douche, Kade Whitemore.
There was no way in hell I was going to alliance myself with that rat bastard. He was alpha of the Yukon pack, violent, and an overbearing ass who’d rather see me on my back with my legs spread open than being his equal. I’d rather die than be forced to be his mate for all eternity. Why couldn’t I mate with Sebastian? Thinking of fucking him gave me the willies, but anything was better than Kade.
Anger racked my body and I sat there, seething . . . until I felt him. He was coming for me; I could sense him drawing near. The closer we got to the meadow, the more I could smell Kade and his excitement—his lust. Hopefully, he could smell the rage and disgust coming from me.
