When she stumbles into Berch Lindholm her future brightens. The boy she’s always loved has turned into a man that makes her her heart flip, and he’s doing more than pulling her pigtails in return. Maybe coming home isn’t such a bad option after all.

When she returns to Winter Valley Berch knows it’s time to act and claim what’s his. But fate has other ideas, and Berch must fight for the love of his life or lose her forever.
 

Review

This is the last novella in the Winter Valley Wolves Vol 1 box set which features the Lindholm brothers.
Raven dreamed up becoming a financial investor on Wall Street but ended up waitressing tables. With a rented Prada purse and Louboutin heels, she shows up at her high school reunion and scratches the purse and breaks the heel of her shoe. She runs into her old childhood friend and crush, Berch, and he’s way grown up.
Berch is a werewolf who’s known Raven was his true mate since they were small children. They were inseparable as kids but grew apart in high school. Now that she’s returned for their high school reunion, he won’t let her go so easily again.
Neither will her old boyfriend who won’t take no for an answer.
I really liked the book but I think Raven accepted Berch’s werewolf story with too much calm and understanding. She didn’t really freak out as I think most women would. Instead, she took some time to adjust and came to terms with it a little too easily.
Well-written in Raven’s 1st POV, the story takes place in about a week and flowed very smoothly. We meet the next couple in the series, Ergan and Kayla, and their story is told in the Winter Valley Wolves Vol 2, the Wakefield brothers.
