Paige Donovan is an ambitious college graduate who aspires to reach the top of the corporate ladder. She’s climbing fast when given the promotion of a lifetime at a prestigious fashion magazine in New York City. Her bright future comes to an unexpected halt after news of her father’s death. She inherits his old cabin in the Colorado Rockies, and just when she thinks her luck couldn’t get any worse, she has a car accident in the mountains and awakens in the small, remote community of Black River.
Soon, she’s engulfed in the mystical world of Varulv—wolves descended from 13th century Scandinavia and blessed by Norse gods with the ability to appear human. Paige is desperate to return home, but never expects to fall for her rescuer, Riley Gray, a charming young werewolf from England who offers her an alternate future with his pack.
Now, she must choose between the career she’s always wanted and the love she’s always dreamed.
Firstly I would like to thank Fiction Addiction Tours for letting me take part in this blog tour. I would also like to thank April Bostic for my review copy.
I thought this book was great. I loved the story.
Paige was an easy character to sympathise with. I lost my mum at a young age and I understood her pain when her father died. I did think she rather quickly went from “oh my boyfriend just cheated on me” to “oh I’m in love with Riley”. I mean I understand he was sex on legs but I just found it a little fast. She certainly proved her love for him though.
Talking of Riley He’s also sweet, kind, caring and thoughtful. He’s also strong and would do absolutely anything for Paige. I found his dedication to her to be extremely romantic. Oh and did I mention he was hot?
I really loved Quinn. She was a fantastic character and her and Paige were really their for each other in the difficult times.
I thought this book had a great ending but I would love to read a sequel or short story follow up to see what happens next.
