Graham McNeil knows that his pack is unruly, but he’s not sure he can take the next step toward Shiftertown stability—choosing a new mate. After losing his mate and son long ago, Graham has worked hard to keep his heart in check. And even if he was inclined to bind himself again, his girlfriend, Misty, is human—a fact that won’t sit well with Graham’s old-fashioned wolves.
But Graham is up against a new enemy, one who could spell danger and death to all of Shiftertown. Graham must now defend his leadership and save Misty, the woman he has grown to love—before Shiftertown is pulled into an all-out war.
Wild Wolf had the drama, action and romance I was looking forward to since reading the last story in the Shifter series Feral Heat. This time the story was focused on the lupine alpha Graham and his human girlfriend Misty. Given the fact that there was this huge rift between humans and shifters since the human forced Shifters to wear these regulated collars that control their anger and forced them into shifter towns. Plus the animosity with some Shifters who viewed the humans as weak and lesser, I was excited and curious to see how Graham and Misty’s relationship would work or even last since Graham was one of the Shifters who disliked humans but that was before he met Misty.
Graham was under some pressure to find a mate, a lupine mate, and at first Graham agreed with it thinking that he was just having a good time with Misty and that it was temporary but things quickly changed when Misty’s life was threatened. I enjoyed how the story developed and with all the crazy and dangerous things happening to Misty and himself, Graham quickly realized how serious his feelings were for Misty. They had some seriously sexy opposite attract relationship that was blazingly hot. I loved how with Graham, a Shifter, and Misty, a human, dealt with their differences with their personalities, what with Graham being bold, hard and in your face and Misty being nice and easy going. But even with their differences Graham had this soft side when it came to those he cared about and Misty had this inner fierceness that they both connected to.
With the complexity of the world building there was plenty of drama and danger that kept me interested. I never knew exactly what was going to happen and I enjoyed learning more about the Shifters and their old time enemies, the Fae can be a formidable foe and they totally lived up to it.
Overall Wild Wolf by Jennifer Ashley was a yummy read. Getting to know the Shifters and all the craze drama that Graham and Misty had to go through, fighting gangsters, the Fae while keeping the human authorities at bay it was all very entertaining. I really liked how even though surrounded by strong capable shifters Misty stepped up and helped the Shifters and really made an impact.
