Description from
The last thing Allison Wright ever expected when she moved to Red Ridge, New Mexico was to come muzzle to muzzle with the wolf of her dreams.

Seventeen-year-old Allison Wright is convinced she's losing her mind. Uncontrollable mood swings, hot flashes, and the urge to punch anyone who gets in her way are suddenly becoming everyday occurrences. Before her erratic behavior gets out of hand, Allison's mother finally comes clean about her dark secret. Mom is a werewolf, and soon Allison and her brother Aiden will suffer the same fate. When Allison reaches her breaking point, the family leaves their life in Texas to move to Red Ridge, New Mexico where they rejoin the pack that Allison's mother left behind almost 20 years ago.

Unfortunately, not everyone in Red Ridge is thrilled about Allison's arrival, especially when she attracts the attention of the very handsome, very taken, soon-to-be alpha, Cade Walker. Little does Allison know, her mere presence is causing a rift in a once unified pack. Not only has Cade been forbidden from being with Allison by his father, the pack's alpha, Cade's girlfriend, Kendall Stuart, will stop at nothing to get Allison out of the picture. Well on her way to becoming the next alpha's mate, Kendall expects to rule the pack by Cade's side even if it means teaming up with a rogue werewolf with an agenda of his own. Determined to get rid of Allison permanently, when Kendall and the rogue join forces, all hell breaks loose and no one in the pack is safe, especially not Cade and his true mate.

I really loved Allison's story from the get-go. The beginning started out perfectly and i loved everything that happened following up to the move. Such a great pre-story. I also really liked the way Allison and Aiden found out they were werewolves.

All of the characters were really great. I loved Allison, of course, and thought her brother was the perfect epitome of an older brother that everyone loves. Cade was fantastic and perfect in the romance department and Kendall was the perfect girl to hate. I absolutely despised her. Every time she would call Cade baby i wanted to barf. I loved all the romance that was involved, but i hated that Cade had to be with Kendall, she was just awful. I wish rogue werewolf would have stuck with one personality, because the bad boy personality he has with Kendall soon turned into a little bit of a good guy towards the end which really confused me.

I did like the ending and liked what happened to the bad guys, but i felt like it was a little too A happens and then B happens. I wish they would have dragged it out a little more or made it more thrilling. The very ending at the hospital was very good and i really liked the turn of events. I cannot wait to see what happens with Aiden in the next book, and i can't wait to read the next book to see where the story will take us and the chaaracters next.

I really liked it. I wish there would have been either a little more romance or a little more action, but overall it was very good. I really like the characters and loved Allison and Cade's romance. I think this story was very well done and i cannot wait to see what will happen next in the second book. I recommend this to anyone who loves werewolves and romance.
