Red Ridge Pack Book 1 - Pack of Lies
 Sara Dailey & Staci Weber 

Goodreads link:

Book Blurb: The last thing Allison Wright ever expected when she moved to Red Ridge, New Mexico was to come muzzle to muzzle with the wolf of her dreams.

Seventeen-year-old Allison Wright is convinced she’s losing her mind. Uncontrollable mood swings, hot flashes, and the urge to punch anyone who gets in her way are suddenly becoming everyday occurrences. Before her erratic behavior gets out of hand, Allison’s mother finally comes clean about her dark secret. Mom is a werewolf, and soon Allison and her brother Aiden will suffer the same fate. When Allison reaches her breaking point, the family leaves their life in Texas to move to Red Ridge, New Mexico where they rejoin the pack that Allison’s mother left behind almost 20 years ago.

Unfortunately, not everyone in Red Ridge is thrilled about Allison’s arrival, especially when she attracts the attention of the very handsome, very taken, soon-to-be alpha, Cade Walker. Little does Allison know, her mere presence is causing a rift in a once unified pack. Not only has Cade been forbidden from being with Allison by his father, the pack’s alpha, Cade’s girlfriend, Kendall Stuart, will stop at nothing to get Allison out of the picture. Well on her way to becoming the next alpha’s mate, Kendall expects to rule the pack by Cade’s side even if it means teaming up with a rogue werewolf with an agenda of his own. Determined to get rid of Allison permanently, when Kendall and the rogue join forces, all hell breaks loose and no one in the pack is safe, especially not Cade and his true mate.

My Thoughts :) 5 out of 5 stars - I loved it!!!

Okay I absolutely loved this book. I couldn’t put it down, much to my son’s dissatisfaction as I didn’t jump when he said he was hungry. lol 

 I bought this book because I am signed up for the 2nd book’s online blog tour, a first for me and my blog, YAY!! And since I’m always looking for ways to connect with my high school students, I wanted to start with book 1 in this series. 

 This is a YA Werewolf Romance. I will definitely be recommending to my students who are very into shifter books and one who will be an author one day. 

 This story is told from the perspective of 3 different characters Allison, Cade, and Kendall. Most of us can relate that high school is tough because the kids can be brutal to each other, but I can’t imagine how hard it would be to add werewolf problems on top of that. I love Allison’s strength and that she is a fighter. This journey with Allison to find a place where she fit in was awesome because I see students struggling with all these same things every day. I think the authors did a fantastic job helping the reader see things from the perspective of the which character that chapter was written in. That being said you do have to pay attention at the beginning of each chapter to know who is speaking. Someone who does not pay attention or get sucked into the fantastic world of the Red Ridge Pack would easily become lost. I highly recommend this book to all those shifter lovers who don’t mind reading YA romance.
