I find this super original (despite other comments)
I was looking through these reviews about it being an overused story (I mean… given that werewolf books are basically their own genre, that’s like saying that romance books are overdone…). It’s the elements within the story that make it original. This is the first werewolf book I have read where the protagonist was a single mother. This is the first one with the perspectives of both main characters AND their wolves. This is the first time I’ve come across the night god and the idea of identity theft within the mind. It is all of these elements that make this book intriguing.

While I was unsure of the male lead at first and their relationship (way too many pet names for a guy with no experience with women). He was almost too perfect? I loved that the main character recognized that and was suspicious but then she just kind of let that go. Nobody is that comfortable with their emotions when they haven’t had the opportunity to practice those skills. However, his less favourable traits made little micro appearances but I would have loved to have seen him become a little more human, especially given his human blood. My only other complaint is that the female lead is a little petty and manipulative, but I actually can’t complain about that because I just asked for the characters to be more human :P
Overall, I was really impressed with the plot and the dynamics between all of the characters (and there are a lot of characters whose personalities get solidified right away, so kudos for that). Her kids are absolutely adorable and I loved watching him go into protective daddy mode! I’m on about chapter 22 at this point and plan on finishing it! Will most likely update my review after as well :)
