Jodie Stone: I really enjoyed this book. It definitely wasn't what I was expecting. The story was very sad especially the ending. I wouldn't have labeled it under horror, but I'm not sure what I would label it as,either. I'll be looking for more from this author!

victoria vaasili: Awesome! Loved it, no doubt about it. Love the passion and trust they have for one another. I love happy endings..Lol.

andyroseartist: I love all the characters. They are flawed and real and reliable. Most of my time is spent looking for books that reflect real life. The author executed that theme beautifully

alibrabil: A fast paced tale of werewolf life. A great read. I didn't want to stop reading until I finished it. The Alphas are cooperating and pack life is exciting and dangerous. I recommend the author partwolf to everyone. Some small grammar mistakes but doesn't take anything away from the riveting tale.

Nanny Garduno: I loved the book you need to do a story about em plzzzzzzz❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Ashelly : I totally enjoy every bit of this story. I do love the steamy side and also the current drama , side affair thingy going on because it somewhat spices the story up. Although I must say, John is a bastard for treating his wife like that even though being married for such a long time.

zungturovani: It's okay , I hope she can recover from Sid's transformation ..
