Serial Review - Bound to the Alpha: Part One by Viola Rivard @ViolaRivard (Bound #1)

Bound to the Alpha:  Part One
Bound #1
by Viola Rivard

Goodreads blurb:  Sarah Harper has spent her life making all the right choices—yet somehow still ending up in all the wrong places. Most recently, her horrendous luck has left her stranded in the middle of the Appalachian wilderness without her glasses.

Cain is an alpha wolf who is already overburdened by obligations. Recognizing her dire predicament, he reluctantly takes on yet another responsibility—escorting the small, nearsighted human female back to her own kind.

Undeniably attracted to the gorgeous alpha, Sarah soon finds herself wanting to make very bad choices. Unlike Sarah, Cain understands the consequences that could arise from lying with a human, but with each day bringing them closer together, Cain isn’t sure he’ll be able to stop himself from being dangerously irresponsible.

Bound to the Alpha: Part One is a 20,000 novella. It is the first entry in the Bound serial, chronicling Sarah Harper’s journey as she inadvertently becomes part of a werewolf pack. This story is for ages 18+ and is not intended for readers uncomfortable with sexual scenarios.

About the Author:  I spent the better part of my childhood in a small town in the Appalachian mountains. Although I moved to the big city, there will always be a part of me that wants to run barefoot through the forest and hop from stone to stone across a wide, clear river.

I have always been a dreamer, and may have meandered through life in a daze, had I not been diagnosed with leukemia at age twenty. I survived cancer, but the part of me that was willing to settle for idle fantasies did not. Galvanized, I decided to follow my dream of becoming an author. The results have been greater than anything I could have ever dreamed.

Whether you’re following your dreams, or you’re just trying your hardest to get through the day, I hope that just for a little while, I was able to take you to another world.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

The cover is cool with the wolf and definitely attracts my attention because I love my shifter books :)

Okay this is a serial series that are novella length, and only my 2nd attempt at trying a serial.  This serial was a great story and seemed to end at a good place, and I saw it coming.  It didn’t just abruptly stop where I wasn’t expecting it.  I read it straight through except the 20 minute car ride to take my nephew to swim practice (I finished it at swim practice).

I like the world Viola has created, and this is my first time reading her work.  I will definitely be reading more too :) like in 20 minutes when I finish this review.  It is easy to visual everything that is going on, and I love both of her characters in this book.  Sarah and Cain are both trying to avoid attachment, but Sarah is dependent on Cain because she is pretty much blind and far from civilization.  She is strong and brave which I love :)  Cain is arrogant and gruff, but has a sweet side.  I really like him too :)

I highly recommend to the shifter lovers out there, but if you aren’t a fan of serials wait until July 9th when the whole thing will be out and concluded :)  I’m off to read part 2 now :)

Interested in reading???
I know it is free on Amazon US and B&N, but not sure about the UK.
