Wolf Meets His Fate by N.J. Walters
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Salvation Pack books have always been good, but this one really delivered all the smutty romance with very little of the darkness that so commonly interferes with the main characters. That's not to say that Aaron and Jesse have a smooth ride, but for me I found this one even more enjoyable.
Aaron is on a bit of a walkabout, trying to figure out where he fits in a pack full of mates. At a bar one night he finds an attractive girl, Jesse, who seems to be alone just like him, but she runs before he has a chance to interact with her in a more appropriate manner. Wolves being wolves, they end up crossing paths again with sexy results. Are there trust issues? Sure! Jesse was raised by a witch and is on the run from her evil father who would rather kill her than let her live out her life without him.
These two make a great pair, neither putting up with too much and willing to step up when it counts. As usual, the supporting cast of characters is rich and entertaining. As a standalone, you can probably get by with this book, but to truly appreciate the world, you should start back at the beginning of this universe. This book delivers a nicely tied up HEA with room for growth in future books. You don't need to spend too much time in the bad guy's head here, so that left me much happier at the end of the story, too.
