My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This short read had me eager to start the next installment. This set of shorts will get you hooked and rooting for one (or both) of these sisters.
Charlie was raised by her mother, but that's the only other shifter she's known. All her life she has felt alone, especially when her mother packs them up on a whim to move elsewhere. After a particularly lame dance, she comes home to find her home invaded by tough looking men. Unfortunately her curiosity and determination to protect her mother end up getting her in even bigger trouble.
The world that Charlie ends up in is filled with shifters. They treat her like a prisoner, but it turns out that they are family. She's even got a new sister. Nothing like having to fight your new sister for the alpha position, right? These two are very different but have a similar personality - the only difference is that Charlie lets people see who she is inside while Regan (her sister) hides it behind a mask.
This drama was just starting to heat up when they also threw in a mysterious stranger who happens to make Charlie sizzle. Oh, and whoever wins alpha gets be married to the warring vampire clan. Lots of stuff is jammed into this short(er) read, but it has me dying for more.

BITTERROOT Part 1
by Heather Hildenbrand & SM Reine
Seventeen year-old Regan Vuk has lived her whole life under the shadow of her future: the pack alpha. She is fast, smart, and determined. According to her own pack members, she is a shoo-in. But Regan’s dad has a secret.
Seventeen year-old Charlie spent her adolescence drifting from place to place with a mother desperate to hide her illegitimate daughter from the unforgiving reality of werewolf pack dynamics. All Charlie has ever wanted is to know her father--and the family that's been kept from her all these years. But most of all, she wants a place to belong in the world. Where she doesn’t have to pretend she can’t sprout fur and paws at will. Being kidnapped on her way home from prom was not she Charlie had in mind.
When Charlie finds out the only way to fit in with her new family is to defeat her long-lost sister for the role of alpha, she refuses. That is until she learns that the strange and alluring vampire she's befriended, Owen, is the same vampire prince that's been promised the winner.
Regan has no doubt that, although she loathes the vampires, it will be her who "wins" Owen.
Only problem: Charlie's already fallen for him.
Bitterroot is a Young Adult Paranormal with a dose of sibling rivalry... Who will you root for?
