I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)
This one had an original beginning.
But in the end, it was all the usual shifter tropes (mating, alpha guy, pack politics, bla bla bla).
And this was short. It actually had too much story line for the few words...
The characters remained kind of pale and a lot of background was hastily thrown in.
What I liked especially:
The scene where the new Alpha interrogates Justin about his plan with the newly widowed Mia. That was cool and unexpected. Quite sensitve also.
If there are some books by that author with more text, I'd be happy to try her work again.
