Netgalley Review - Past My Defenses by Wendy Sparrow @WendySparrow (Taming the Pack #1)

Past My Defenses
Taming the Pack #1
by Wendy Sparrow

Goodreads blurb:  Vanessa is the fastest Lycan around. In wolf form, the only threat she can’t outrun is her allergies. After a feline dander-bomb takes her down, she wakes up naked in a cage staring at a hot park ranger who had no idea what he’d trapped. But ooooh, he smells so good. Mine.

Dane hoped to tame the silver wolf in his kennel, but all bets are off with the deliciously sweet Vanessa on two legs. Her temper makes his pulse race, and he can’t escape the feeling they belong together.

They’re hot as a forest fire even before they scent-match, but Glacier Peak’s Alpha considers Dane a danger to the pack. Meanwhile, Lycans are being poached, and Vanessa has been targeted. Dane will have to keep her close to protect her, but with Vanessa in heat and mad to mate, who will protect him?

About the Author:  At home in the Pacific Northwest, Wendy Sparrow writes for both an adult and young adult crowd in many genres but always with a happily ever after. She has two wonderfully quirky kids, a supportive husband, and a perpetually messy house because she hates cleaning. She’s an advocate both online and in her community for autistic children in addition to actively trying to raise awareness about obsessive compulsive disorder. Most days she spends on Twitter procrastinating doing the dishes.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!

***Received ebook from Entangled Publishing for an honest review

The cover doesn’t do much for me, but the moon is cool.  The guy on the cover screams serial killer, and I think he is supposed to be Dane but maybe that is sexy to someone else, for me “Oh Hell No”…lol

This a nice start to a series.  There were a few parts that I was bored, but I think it happens sometimes with new worlds when they are created.  There is lots of action, silliness, tension, and humor mixed throughout the book.  I think this series will get better as it goes along. 

I loved the quirky interactions and miscommunications happening between Dane and Vanessa.  She is a strong alpha female, and I love that she is always herself.  Dane is an Alpha who isn’t wolfy, and he butts heads with Jordan who is an Alpha who does go wolfy.  Dane and Jordan are always humorous with their arrogance and competition.  I can’t wait to see where this series goes next :)

Wendy does a great job pulling you into the story.  Her writing style is fun, and I love all the humor she mixes into the story. 

I recommend this series to my shifter lovin’ friends.  I wonder how long until Book 2 comes out :)

Interested in reading???
