Kris Ellis thought that the time of arranged marriages was long past—but that was before the Great Unveiling revealed creatures of myth living among humans. Now a routine medical test has determined that Kris has a mate, a werewolf named Rafael King.
Kris is fresh out of college and has plans for his life. None of them include being tied forever to someone he’s never met. But then Rafe calls him, and Kris starts to reconsider. After all, what must it be like to wait for your soul mate for two hundred years?
Rafe is patient, strong, and kind, not to mention attractive. True to what Kris has heard about mates, sparks fly the second they meet. But Kris and Rafe are very different, and the werewolf way of life is dangerous. Is the fight for love really worth it?
Wow! Susan Laine knocked this one out of the ballpark! I loved the fresh storyline and the intense chemistry between the two heroes. Between the fast paced storyline and the sexy shifters, I quickly read this book in one setting and wished for more when it ended.
One of the reasons why I really loved this book was: the creative way the author got the two heroes together. I’ve read MANY shifter stories, and to my knowledge, I thought this book had the most interesting ways for the mates to meet. I’m sorry if I’m being a little evasive here, but I don’t want to spoil this book, so I’m trying to tread very carefully and I’ve decided not to rehash the book, but encourage you to really read the blurb. The blurb does an excellent job at explaining what the book is about without spoiling much.
Instead, I thought I would give the reasons why I really enjoyed this book. I really liked that even though the two heroes are drawn together, there wasn’t an insta-love connection between them. I also appreciated how their relationship progressed throughout the book, and I loved them together as a couple. Both heroes are very well-written, likeable men. It was easy to care about them both and I really appreciated that both men were smart, sexy and very stubborn. There is also an intense attraction that burns and sizzles between them. They’ve got a very strong chemistry and I adored every moment they shared together in the book. I liked the quick banter between them and just all around enjoyed reading their love story.
Also, the book moves very quickly and the plot itself kept me glued to my ereader. There’s some angst in this book, but it’s not overly done and all in all I think it’s a very well-written and well-rounded book. If you are looking for a sexy and unique shifter story, The Wolfing Way is a perfect choice for you. It gave me several hours of an enjoyable escape from my everyday life and since this is the first book in a series, I look forward to reading the second book in the series in the future. Highly Recommended!
