Rebecca Royce certainly has a way with writing werewolves. She’s got plenty of world building in such a short time that catches anyone not familiar with her work up without any confusion. You can tell there have been other stories prior to this one, but it doesn’t hurt at all if you’ve not already read them, though it does peak your interest enough to want to go read them asap.
I enjoyed the dynamics between the characters; his sudden alpha side and her playful teasing side. I love a woman who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to voice it. I also like how, despite the intensity of his urges, he still wants to do right by her.
The only thing that bothered me was that even though it’s explained away as instinct, it all still feels a little too quick and easy. That being said, it all led up to a pretty adorable ending, so I can’t complain.

He scratched his chin before pulling her against him. “Stuck? How could I even place you and that word in the same sentence?”
“There are lots of wolf shifters. You might have preferred one of them—“
“Cara,” he interrupted. “Do you think there is something wrong with my wolf?”
Karma can be a bitch…in the best of ways.
With one stroke of his talented tongue, her knees nearly gave out beneath her.
“Easy there. Lots more to go with this. I want you upright.”
“Not sure I can comply.”
He looked up and raised an eyebrow. “What did you say to me last time? Oh right, yes you can.”
“Damn it.” She had said that to him. “This is payback?”
“The best kind.” He growled. “So keep yourself standing.”
