HUNGRY LIKE A WOLF
When her father died, Honor Tate inherited the alpha position for a pack of werewolves based in New England. But why her? Honor would have rather just lived a "normal" life, with the occasional run through the woods in her furry suit. Still, Honor was raised to put the welfare of the pack first…and now it's time to make a formal request that the alpha of the Silverback clan—the pack to which all locals owe fealty—recognize her as alpha of the White Paw. But instead of sending his support, the Silverbacks send Logan Hunter.
Logan Hunter would do anything to protect the Silverbacks—but his devotion comes with a price. For years he has been fighting his alpha instincts and the need for his own pack. But all that changes when Logan is sent on a mission to find out whether the new White Paw alpha really has what it takes to carry on her father's legacy. Powerful, spirited, and downright gorgeous Honor exceeds his expectations…and leaves him howling for more. Could it be that he's finally found his alpha mate? Or will old enemies, dueling loyalties, and an appetite for destruction stop him dead in his tracks?
In Warren's flimsy eighth Others novel (after Drive Me Wild), previously digitally published as Fur Play, Honor Tate has just inherited her father's position as alpha of the White Paw werewolf pack. Female alphas are rare, so the local werewolf leader sends his beta, Logan Hunter, to find out whether she's fit for the job. Logan and Honor immediately antagonize each other despite sharing a passionate attraction, while Honor fights her packmates in challenge after challenge for her position. Warren's werewolves are not simply furry humans, and she takes full advantage of their inherent drama, from violent pack hierarchy to the wild mating of werewolves in heat. However, readers expecting a feminist fable of strong female leadership and well-matched protagonists will be disappointed; Honor objects to the ritualized sexual assault of werewolf society, but that doesn't keep Logan from "claiming" her while she repeatedly fights him off and shouts for him to stop. Even fans of quasi-consensual stories will find this bloody supernatural drama hard going.
Hungry for More
Love this author and books, but found it lacking. Normally the author spends more time getting the reader invested and connected with the characters and their relationships. Still a good book but nothing compared to the others.
I expected more for this character. I vastly prefer the other books in this series all of which were sexy, intriguing, and fun! Should have gotten this from the library instead of buying.
