Review - 'Fire of the Wolf' by Lori King



My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Blurb


Introverted nurse Caroline Trainor’s apartment burns to the ground, and she is rescued by a sexy fireman. Waking up in the hospital, she finds the delicious fireman and his identical twin brother waiting for her.

Devin and Damon Gray claim that they are alpha leaders of a pack of werewolves, and that she is destined to be their mate. Her logical nature resists this unreal situation, but her body craves their every touch. Struggling with unresolved pain from her past and her need for her own identity, she has no desire to be their house wolf—until another wolf pack’s alpha threatens their lives and relationship with a challenge to the death.

Scared to lose the men she has grown to love like she lost her parents, she runs directly into the arms of the lethal alpha challenger, and the brothers must save her before they all wind up dead.

 
Review 

I won this book, as well as the whole series (up to book 5), in a contest/giveaway. Thank you, Lori King, for this wonderful set. I am not paid or compensated for this honest review.
Caroline Trainor suffers from a personal tragedy and lives her life from day to day without really living until she wakes up in the hospital and everything changes. Devin and Damon Gray are sexy firemen werewolves who just found their mate. Since they’re twins, it’s common for twins to share a single mate. Without giving away too much of the story, they spend a lot of time seducing Caroline and gaining her trust. The sex scenes are super hot and the reader can feel the personal and emotional connection the men have with their woman, and how she feels toward her men. Although I think their feelings for love and trust happened too quickly, too easily in the story, it makes sense because the three of them are destined to be together. And when destiny is involved, the wildest things can happen.
The side characters are a wonderful addition to downplay the rampant sex that sometimes takes over the book. Jim and Sienna, the twins' parents, are so kind and accepting of Caroline. Although very sweet, the love they showed Caroline so early on bothered me a little. It’s just hard for me to fathom how two strangers can love another stranger so unconditionally, without fate or destiny being involved.
The other side characters--Liam, Cash, Owen, Rafe, and Riley--are fun, sexy, dark, and completely edible. And, of course, all wolf. The buildup for the second book is with Liam and Tina, Caroline’s emotionally-scarred best friend, and I can’t wait to read Reflections of the Wolf.
The bad guy, Barton, is just a nasty person/wolf. I was happy to see him meet his fate.
This plot was great but I was shocked by the typos (misspelled words, little words missing in the sentence, etc). The typos took me out of the story and I had to reread a few sections to find out who was talking or what was going on. All the book needs is a proofread and edit to fix these little mistakes and then it’s an easy 5 Star book in my opinion.
I definitely recommend this story despite the typos because I loved the characters and overall plot. It’s just a really good book and I’m anxious to read more about the Gray Pack.
4 Stars.
