Loving him will be legendary. . .if she can survive it.
What happens when monsters turn out to be real? One summer night while camping in the woods, Morgan Carter finds out in a big way. A tall mysterious stranger, Greyson Crawford, risks his life to try and save her sister from the vicious wolf attacking their camp. When he's bitten and disappears into the night, Morgan can only assume the worst.
Greyson shows up a year later, and he's a different animal altogether. His eye color shifts constantly and the rumble in his throat sounds more animal than human. She hasn't any idea where he's been all this time, but a good guess as to what he's become.
Grey is determined not to let the darkness of his new existence affect Morgan and the little girl in her care. He hasn't been able to stop thinking about Morgan but knows he should stay away and let her live a normal life. That's easier said than done, though. A new danger pulls him from the shadows to keep her safe, and he's no wolf in sheep's clothing.
Can she accept what lurks just below his surface? More importantly, can she survive him?
Greyson Crawford wakes in the middle of the night after hearing a woman scream. He’s out camping in the middle of nowhere so it’s completely unexpected; he believed he was miles from any other person. When he runs to help out he finds an inhumanly large wolf attacking a woman. The woman is trying to save her sister who the wolf has already attacked. Greyson finds himself fighting the wolf and getting bitten by it, along with many other wounds. Right before he becomes unconscious he sees the woman he’s saved and they exchange names. After he awakens he can’t forget Morgan, her lovely face or her intoxicating scent.
That night Grey was turned into a werewolf. He believes himself to be the only one in existence so has no one to help him cope. His eyes constantly turn from human to wolf and he has a hard time controlling his animal side – the one he calls Wolf. He ends up quitting his job and taking an apartment in a shady part of town so that no one will ask questions. Six months after his turn he is visited by two men who are also wolf, who then introduce him to their alpha. Grey can’t be in the Dallas pack because he is too dominant to be under another alpha, but they do help him with learning to deal with being a werewolf.
It’s been a year since he’s seen Morgan but when he scents her he can’t stay away. He knows he should try because he’s such an animal but he soon realizes that it’s impossible. Morgan is thrilled when she sees Grey as she’s not been able to forget him either. Morgan feels just as strongly for Grey as he does her and he loves her niece, who she is guardian of, just as much. When he takes them to meet the pack, however, not everyone is thrilled that Morgan is Grey’s mate and takes their anger out on Morgan.
This wasn’t a very long book but I felt it was a very nice start to what I hope will be a great paranormal series. I really like the style of writing that Shanley has as it drew me into the book immediately and I didn’t want to put it down.
Grey is one big, bad alpha werewolf but that doesn’t stop him from being loving and caring to Morgan and her niece, Lana. I loved seeing the softer side of him but loved his alpha side and protectiveness as well. Morgan’s character went through a ton of changes throughout the book and I admired her for her resilience as those changes were all difficult to deal with. She faced each challenging situation the best she could and did it with grace and intelligence.
As the story was so short there wasn’t a whole lot of background on the characters or world building. I’m hoping that we get more of that in future books as I can obviously see that there’s a huge story behind Grey and his family. There were other questions I had while reading and I need those answered! lol The ending of the story was nice but kind of left me hanging as to what will happen next. I’m hoping that we won’t have to wait too long for the next book to find out.
