Review - 'Reflections of the Wolf' by Lori King

Reflections of the Wolf by Lori King
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book picks up from the last chapter of the first book, Fire of the Wolf, but from Tina’s POV. Since I read these books back-to-back, I found the beginning of book 2 a little tedious because I already knew what was going on. I would’ve enjoyed the beginning more had I waited a few weeks or so to read this one.
Anyway, the book picks up steam once Tina and Liam meet and the pack explains to her that werewolves exist. The sexual relationship starts off really quick and Tina panics afterward. She definitely makes Liam work hard to win her over (which I want and expect from a stubborn woman!).
At first, I understood and sympathized with Tina’s internal conflict and the pain/guilt she carried inside over her fiance’s death but she carried it for too long. She kept giving Liam mixed signals. Liam has emotional problems, too, but he was much more mature and open about his past than Tina was. Liam was a great character but I couldn’t connect well with Tina after a while. I tried to understand her problems and why she acted the way she did but, half way through the book, I couldn’t make excuses anymore for her petulant and childish actions/responses to everything Liam did and said. She wouldn’t open up and talk to the man she obviously loved and who loved her.
The sex scenes were great, detailed and downright sexy. Most of the characters kept me intrigued and I love the scenes with all the pack members. Those men are crazy, super hot and I sooo want to take one or two of those wolves home with me!
There were a few editing and spelling problems but not as many that were in the first book. I definitely noticed an improvement. Thank you author/editor/proofreader.
Anyway, I recommend this book for anyone who loves angsty paranormal romance books.
4 Stars.
