Synopsis

Colette had known all her life that she was half human and half werewolf. She had no expectations of a life filled with love and adventure.
Everything changed on her 21st birthday. A curse casted by witches centuries ago set things in motion, things she could have never imagined. A past that Colette has no clue about has come back to steal her away.
When Hunter, her destined but very unexpected mate, arrives, she is at a complete loss. She must learn to forget an old love and how to make room for a new love.
The curse is being recast and Colette must stop it in order to save the wolves, all the while finding who she really is.

***Katie – #NerdGirlKtLBLy’s Review***
Collette’s life up until 10 has not been good. Her mother isn’t in her life, her father was abusive towards her, and she gets kidnapped by these scary men that put her in a cage, and want to try to use her abilities. The problem is, she has no idea the abilities they are talking about. They keep telling her to transform but she doesn’t understand what they mean. In the next cage is a boy a little bit older than her, named Griffin.
He promises to take care of her no matter what. When the men try to get to Collette again, Griffin transforms into a werewolf to protect her, and Griffin’s pack come to rescue them. After the pack take care of the men, they plan to only take Griffin back, but he explains that he needs Collette in his life because he pack bonded with her, and it would cause a lot of issues if they are away from each other for too long. Collette learns that the reason the men wanted her is because she’s half human half werewolf also. She has heightened senses like a wolf but for some reason she can’t transform.
When she turns 21, her mating ritual starts and she wants her mate to be Griffin since she’s the closest to him, but it turns out she’s not mated to anyone in her own pack. She also learns that she is not part human, but part witch and that may be why she could never fully transform. She’s scared to let her pack mates know because witches and warlocks are the number 1 enemy to werewolves. She’s upset with everything going on so she goes out for a walk where she runs into a different werewolf pack who are on the search for some warlocks who have been killing werewolves. It’s then that she meets Hunter who starts off being rude, annoyed with seemingly everything, and is super jealous of Collette’s and Griffin’s close friendship. He also happens to be Collette’s mate. Collette thinks that it’s ironic that they are mates because Hunter seems more wolf than man whereas Collette seems to be more human than wolf. Collette does not like Hunter at first but decides that she has to at least give him a try. She gives herself 6 months to go with him and his pack, and to see if she wants to make their mating official. Hunter and Collette bond and start getting to know one another more, however more warlocks show up and seem to be very interested in Collette and seem to know a lot more about her then she knows about herself.
While I enjoyed reading the werewolf aspects of the story, I did not really care for the witch parts. Honestly I think the whole witch aspect made the story drag a bit. If it was just a story about her finding out she has a mate from a different pack, and them learning to trust and care for one another it would have been a stronger story. The witch story line does add a little but I think that if it was reworked or taken out it would have been better. There were also a few sections that phrasing was repeated over and over and things got just a little too repetitive at times but otherwise it’s a decent paranormal romance. I would be interested to see Hunters POV because he is more wolf than man and that may be an interesting story line with his animal instincts taking over and helping understand why he makes some of the decisions that he makes.
