Make Her Howl (Bring Her Wolf #1)
Summary: Chloe is a null, a werewolf who can’t change, and pack law says nulls can’t live on pack land. As she prepares to leave the only home she’s ever known, temptation and desire arrive on her doorstep in the form of Jackson, a darkly handsome alpha. He says he can bring her wolf, but she’ll have to submit to him in ways she never imagined. Their union is rough and savage–Jackson is a wolf on a mission: He will make her howl…one way or another.
Make Her Howl is approximately 8,000 words in length and contains graphic sexual content. Page length varies due to ereader settings, but please understand this is a short story and not a novel. Short stories are the mini candy bars of fiction; little sweet nothings that melt too fast. That’s why you can never stop at just one!
The Alpha’s Mate (Bring Her Wolf #2)
Summary: Little known fact about being a werewolf: There are always wolves at your door and some of them are up to no good.
Chloe Weiss’ dreams have finally come true: She’s a null no more, her wolf has finally come. She’s now a full member of her pack in the remote Appalachian ‘weretown’ of Hunstville. Even better, she’s mated to the pack’s next alpha, Jackson Swift. However, now that she’s on the other side of her happy ending, things aren’t quite as rosy as she’d expected.
The women of her pack resent her status as alpha’s mate and suddenly there are rumors that Chloe is an Omega, a werewolf so weak they are banned from ever mating. Worse, an old friend of Jackson’s blows into town full of disapproval….and competition. It seems no one likes Chloe except Jackson.
Then women start disappearing, violently kidnapped from their homes and never heard from again. There’s a killer on the loose in the small town of Huntsville, and the one wolf he’d do anything to have is Chloe.
Now Chloe will have to fight…for Jackson, her place in the pack, and her life.
Source: I received a free digital copy of the books from the author in exchange for an honest review.
The first book was a short story showing how Chloe became a wolf when she was known as a null in her pack, meaning she hadn’t yet changed and wasn’t projected to. A newcomer to the pack helped.. fix that by doing something no one else had thought to do before. It was a short and to the point book. I liked the werewolf pack dynamics, but the book was basically just Jackson and Chloe going at it and her becoming a werewolf as a result.
The second book was longer and had more of a story arc. Chloe and Jackson were mated and he was pretty vocal about how he cared about her and she would be his. She loved him, but it certainly shook up pack dynamics. Not only did Jackson sleep with basically all the eligible pack females when the alpha decided he had to find his mate, but Chloe was now this new alpha’s mate, basically in the spotlight, after a lifetime of being on the back burner and forgotten. She was definitely a threat to pack females who thought they had more of a claim to Jackson.
I enjoyed the plot. It was fun, fast paced, and enjoyable in a similar way to the Sookie Stackhouse series. However, the books were both pretty basic with easy dialogue and not much complexity. I felt like they were fun, but essentially not as well polished or intricate as other paranormal romance novels. They are great books when you’re looking for something easy on the brain and good fun. It had a light contemporary flow, but a paranormal plot.
The short story is actually free on Amazon Kindle. The Alpha’s Mate is only 3.99 (at the time I wrote this review) for Amazon Kindle, so it’s quite affordable if you’re in the mood for something light and fun.
