    Full review found on Book-BoyfriendsSo... What can I say? After getting over the initial misunderstanding due to an Aussie accent I have to say I came to love the first real good guy we met: Jared. No matter what his role was/is in all of this, he sure is someone I like to become happy one day... Hell, he totally deserves that!Next I totally went to Bel's side. If I could pick any female character to be my kick-ass-best friend I swear it would be her. She's compassionate, sweet and one of the greatest females ever written. She's NOT whining all the time and she always stays true to what she believes. She is one hell of a girl!And now... The part I probably loved most: Theo. I love the way he is described, the way he acts, the way he loves and sure as hell the way he is an alpha. GOD, he's adorable!All in all I can say that I can imagine how hard it can be to put your heart out there, needing to have faith that people won't tear you apart. Among millions of shifter books it's hard to take a stand, too. Yet I can say I hope that Aimie Jennison soon will be a recognized author because I LOVED her debut. I love the pack dynamics, I love the "King" of the vampires, I love the witchy best friend... I love, love, love it all. I sure hope we soon find the next installment in our hands because this book surely leaves you hungry for more. Very great NA read, but might as well be read by a younger audience since this book is sweet and amazing without needing steam to make it anything remarkable. The book manages VERY well without that.

    I'm so torn on this book! which is sad to say since it started so well. I mean I liked the whole she wolf finding herself concept but then the book went too far trying to make it stand out from other werewolf novels. I mean what kind of werewolf is also an empathy AND can teleport?! talk about trying wayyyy to hard. Honestly I think I have more negatives in regards to this book than good point. However, I'll still give it 3 stars because I did just about manage to finish the painful thing.

    Let's just say it doesn't sit well with Theo that others want to claim his woman, "you want to claim her?" I barely contain my growl. She is my mate. No one but me will be claiming her." Theo he tries to calm his woman down, and sometimes it just has a weird reaction, "don't worry, she's got no chance, I'm yours, remember?" He says as he leans across the console and gives me a chaste kiss. I can smell his arousal and realize he's aroused by the fact that I'm jealous." Personally I loved this book it's perfect for young adults as there's no naughtiness but a few kisses and there's action and characters you can't help but love.

    Rosabel (Bel) is a werewolf who was raised by her human aunt and werelion uncle. She was never fully accepted into his pride. As soon as Bel turned eighteen she became eligible to be challenged by any member of the pride. A fight to the death. Bel was challenged daily so she and her uncle decided it was best if she leave the pride and try to join a pack of her own kind.She ends up in Mount Roxby and accepts a bartending job at Misty's, a witch-vamp-were bar. Bel meets Theo, Mount Roxby's werewolf alpha, on her first night and immediately there's a spark. Theo recognizes her as his true mate yet Bel is slower to catch on since she's had no previous contact with werewolves. Bel also happens to arrive in the middle of mysterious vamp-nappings.I've been looking forward to Pride to Pack for several months. The blurb intrigued me and the cover is pretty. Plus I love a good shifter book. Overall, I thought Jennison's debut novel was solid. I thought the storyline was original and originality is high on my list of things I want in a book. It also hooked me. I just had to find out what happens. But I did have some problems.Theo may have been alpha of the pack but he was so un-alpha towards Bel. (view spoiler)[He waited to claim her even though she was receptive to it. He let her go on other dates. He let a vamp drink from her. When Bel thought it might be best if she leaves he wanted to respect her wishes and let her go. When he finally did claim her, afterwards he let her go home and sleep in her own bed...wut?! (hide spoiler)] Um...NO! I prefer my shifters to be more growly and possessive and unreasonable. I also prefer shifter books to be smutty but even if it's YA as this one is meant to be there's a way to portray all of those emotions without using sex. I love sweet, squee-worthy kisses just as much but I wasn't feeling it. However, I did love Bel's alpha-ness. (view spoiler)[In the end she's the one that does the rescuing and the scenes where she knocks Chloe the fuck out were fantastic! (hide spoiler)] She never stood down from a challenge. She was also decisive and fair. I think she should be the leader.I wanted more world-building. The werewolves were the focus but witches and vamps were important characters so I wanted to know more about their societies and how they all interact with each other and with humans.But for the most part I liked it and I'm looking forward to book two.

    This was a good debut for Jennison. I do love shifter stories and I was intrigued and kept turning the pages to see what was going to happen. I felt the story was original which is a plus. I loved the Pride to Pack theme and thought this was pretty cool. It would be really nice to see some stories with the Pride and I am hoping for a good outcome for Jared. The one thing I love about Shifter books or Werebooks is you can almost always count on them to be steamy. To me it is pretty much a requirement that the males are dominant and they take their women no holds barred. They are animals after all so with the male I expect possessiveness, bossiness, and with his woman he never takes not for an answer. He usually growls at her, fucks her, and withholds orgasms until she comes to her senses. Yes it sounds crazy but it is what I love in an alpha book and it falls in line with their animal coming to the surface. In this story it was not the case I didn’t get the sense that any of the males were very alpha. Theo who was supposed to be The Alpha was more passive. Jared who was to be leader of his Pride someday wasn’t alpha either. The true Alpha of the story was Bel she never backed down and knew how to take charge. I was confused by Bel at times because I felt she was more concerned about protecting Dominick than her mate. Bel was also doing the typical girl thing of just assuming what the guy was thinking and not communicating.The transition between scenes could have flowed better and I really would have liked to connect to the characters. At times I felt the author was telling me how the character felt not weaving in words to make me FEEL the character. It felt a little robotic or stifled in the speech and actions of the characters.This novel would probably be great for the older YA as a few scenes described eluded to sex but no sex scenes were involved. Also all the characters were very nice even the bad guy was very apologetic.All being said it was a strong debut it held my interest and I am intrigued to see what the next book will be about.

    This is a 3.5. The writing improves as the book develops, and the story keeps a fairly consistent pace. The editing leaves something to be desired, but I've definitely seen worse. The characters are believable and the relationships maintain credibility.All up, a nice light, easy paranormal romance.

    Definitely an entertaining read.Our main character, Bel, is a strong sensitive woman in a bad situation that will only get worse for her as well as family and friends if she remains. Her only choice is to start over somewhere else and she does. She may not have jumped from the frying pan into the fire, but she definitely jumped into another equally hot frying pan. The main difference in this case being not what she is ( a werewolf), so much as what else she is. With former, present and future love interest s popping up all around her, causing chaos in her daily life within hours of stepping off the bus, Bel has her hands full.

    (4.5 Stars)"Pride to Pack" is a truly delightful and unexpectedly good read. The world building is superb, the characters are multi dimensional and the plot was action packed. My only criticism is that the romance/ love making was tepid at best.Rosabel or Bel is a werewolf living among and being raised by werelions since the untimely death of her parents many years ago. Most of the lions resent her and it seems she is being challenged to the death at every turn. Bel has been in love with the alpha's son, Jared since high school and after he steps in to take over one of Bel's challengers she realizes any relationship between them will always be an uphill battle. So, Bel decides to leave.Since Bel was not raised among wolves, she doesn't know all of the pack dynamics nor did she know that when entering new territory she needs to contact the alpha or vampire ruler for permission. So when she accepts a job working at a bar in Mount Roxby and the sexy alpha, Theo introduces himself, she gets her first lesson in pack dynamics. Additionally, she doesn't realize that the strange tingling she felt while shaking Theo's hand signals she has found her true mate; but, Theo knows.Oh and did I mention that Dominick, the vampire king ( yeah, he's a legend in his own mind) forces a tie between he and Bel when he samples her tasty blood? Well, all of this drama will have to wait while Bel attempts to get the alpha and the self proclaimed king to work together in discovering who has been kidnapping vampires and werewolves.There is plenty of drama including jealous contenders for the alpha's affection, blind dates with wizards and an angry ex who wants a reconciliation. What more could a girl want? Right? I truly enjoyed this little gem of a book and was eager to download book two until I discovered that it isn't out yet. If you like paranormal mystery/ thrillers with more than just your typical myths, "Pride to Pack" just might very well be the book for you. I definitely wouldn't label this a paranormal romance because the romantic scenes were definitely avoided. Some authors don't feel comfortable writing sex scenes and so maybe that is the case with Ms. Jennison. For me, I think it would have made this read even stronger! But don't let this keep you from reading a really good story!

    I loved how this book jumped right into the action. Rosabel is my kind of girl, strong independent and knows how to kick butt! I liked Theo, he's strong, loyal and brave. The romance between them is intense but Bel does resist a little and I did find myself wanting to shout at her!The only thing I didn't quite understand was the relationship between Bel and Dominick, one minute Bel hates him the next she'd saving his life by offering her blood. I didn't like Dominick character I found him arrogant and his constant interrupting of Theo and Bel's mating drove me mad, I do hope he gets put down a peg or two in the next book :) Over all a good solid debut, interesting plot and characters and I look forward to the next installment

    Great read from a debut author. Held my interest from start to finish. I just have a problem where I guess the bad guy really early & then wait for it to sink into the characters. I enjoyed my time at mount Roxby & will definitely be picking up the next in the series.

    When the man you supposedly love is being held hostage, you don't haggle about the time you get your Butt out of bed to go rescue him. When you are mated to someone you love, you don't go on dates with another man, let alone kiss him. As you can tell these a big turn-offs for me.

    As someone who doesn't care that much for werewolves, I absolutely loved these wolves. I mean talk about a page turner! I was hooked from page one and had to force myself to put the book down to get things done. Great job Aimie! I look forward to the next one.

    Ah, where to start? I'll try and keep it short shall I?- we are amped up about this h who has been trained from the age of ten to be sure that when she faces inevitable challenges at the age of 18, she will be able to kill the opponents. And we've been told that after she turned 18, she did face endless challenges... and win... which means she killed them. It's said around one challenge a week, but occasionally her friend/boyfriend would take them on, so let's be conservative and say she herself faced and killed one challenger a month for 6 years. That's roughly 72 (but probably over 200) people she has killed to date. She has obviously lived in a hostile environment in all that time, but this chick jumps and freezes at every opportunity. People sneak up behind her (and by sneak I mean they walk up behind her to say hi, even tho she has super shift senses and is an empath), repeatedly. She's faced with a wolfing out wolf, freeze (this is vaguely explained by her picking up on the panic and stress of the others surrounding her, but seriously, with her history, in a dangerous situation, she defaults to opening her emotions rather than locking that shit down and dealing with the problem?). She gets pinned by a vamp out for her blood, fine. She is a wimpy flake. She does improve slightly near the end, but still, this girl has been raised in her own personal war and is now out by herself for the first time in her life with unknown people surrounding her and she's little better than wilting violet.(guess I'm not going to make it short after all, sorry)- she's been placed with her aunt and uncle in this pack that is and has always been openly hostile to her to the point where the uncle is training her for hours a day to ensure she won't be easy to kill, but he never thinks to prepare her for the outside world? Or to fill in the blanks when she does says enough is enough and she's heading out to find another pack? Nooooo, he doesn't say a word, so she's all sorts of shocked when she's asked if she actually had the manners to ask for a 'visa' into another packs territory. Nor does she have any idea what the mating bond entails.- oh, the mating bond... so they meet, she feels something but doesn't know what (although come on, even blind Freddy would be asking at least a few subtle questions after what she's feeling, and she's a shifter who educated or not, knows about mating bonds), he knows but does nothing. Nor does he do anything when the vamp says since she's not pack, he's going to take a bite. Nor does he do anything until after she's been bitten... and had a F'ING bond formed with the vamp... WHICH THE H KNEW WOULD HAPPEN IF THE BITTING HAPPENED AND THAT IT WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO BE BROKEN! No, he waits until after the blood rape to claim her and have to find a way to break the bond and have her be in danger until they figure out a way.- still the mating bond. They are true mates, so not just in love and devoted, and not just mated, but destined soul mates. After all the F'ING around before he tells her they are mates, they don't get to complete the bond for a while because of the vamp who wants her keeps interfering, but both before and after the final bonding (yes, sex), they keep ignoring each other, not talking about things (not just general couple stuff, but  someones been kidnapped - so she might even be in danger, sisters in trouble, big shit going down... Nada). This, IMO, peaks when the H is kidnapped and the pack dominants ask her to stay in the H's pack house to be safe (because she's still going home every night!)... she can use a spare room! WTF. They are true mates, they have already screwed... and it was in his bed, but she can stay in a spare room since he's not there to supervise her? Seriously, wtf!- she's always telling us (whenever she's not being completely oblivious to her surrounding and being snuck up on) that she can sense them, hear them, smell them coming up behind her, then she turns around and tells us she was right in what she sensed, heard and smelled and see the people she expected behind her... well dah. Do we need to read that sequence half a dozen times?Overall, she's a bit of a pussy (and I dont remember having the urge to call a wimp that before), and he's a fairly beta alpha or worse. There's endless times he's all woe is me when he should be manning the f up.I just need to stop thinking about it and move on now... but wait, I just remembered reading the sneak peek of book two at the end. 8/ Seriously, they are at the cinema bitching about the H being too protective of his fragile human sister, so the h says to easy up as she's fragile and needs to be protected... and then teleports out to go home and pack while the fragile human sister walks down the dark street alone in a town with shifter, vamps and other supernaturals... so she can get home 5 mins earlier to pack! And yes, the fragile human gets snatched up by a vamp before the third page. Can't we say 'let's be dumb for the book'? Grrrr

    I downloaded The Binder's Game as a free book from Amazon. Interesting world-building and characters make this unusual plot a really good read. While not a fast-paced read, it was steady and built to a surprising ending (some threads are left open, so there's sure to be another book to come). Galen was a bit of a disappointment, because of how easily he was manipulated through the whole book, but the twists and turns kept me reading. PS: editors and proofreaders are our friends, this book would have benefited from both.

    Series: Mount Roxby #1Category /Genre: Paranormal romanceRecommended for: 18 + due to violence and adult contentGrammar/editing: C – average writing, poorly-edited Received from: Amazon purchaseThis is the first book in the Mount Roxby series. I believe they do need to be read in order.Rosabel was raised by her aunt and uncle, the only werewolf within a pride of were-lions. Her aunt is human because the were-gene had skipped her. As soon as she comes of age, the challenges begin…weekly attempts by the lions to kill the wolf. Luckily, her uncle had trained and prepared her for this foreseeable situation and the Alpha’s son was willing to make challenges to protect her. Finally, she decides to leave the pride lands and find a pack where she may be accepted. Newly arrived in Mount Roxby, she lucks into a job at the local bar for supernaturals and an immediate friendship with the witch who owns it. When the Alpha of the local pack meets her is surprised to find his mate and quick to realize that she was never taught to recognize the signs of a mate. She has also caught the eye of the King of the Vampires. Now she has to convince the Alpha and the King to work together against something strong enough to attack werewolves and kill vampires. Can they set aside their jealousies long enough to locate and stop their mutual enemy?The good: Rosabel is strong… Alpha-strong. The story was well-planned with plenty of intrigue, action, and unique abilities and situations.The bad: Unfortunately, neither of her Alphas (wolf or lion) appear to be alpha when she is present. The Vampire King, Dominick, is aggressive and domineering. Jared, the son of the werelion pride’s Alpha, is a bully. None of them are called on their bull-spit. There were also a few unrealistic plot holes (just how many lions were in that pride that it could still function after losing a member every week?). I also think that some parts that needed more inspection were glossed over and trivial action more emphasized than was needed.My conclusion: This was the first book I have read from Ms. Jennison. I hope it’s not my last! Even with the writing troubles, I loved this story of werewolves and vampires. I loved the premise of a werewolf raised among the werelions. The author has great potential with well-developed scenes and plot. I think she needs to work on her character development and timeline. She needs to invest in an editor and take the time to grow into her craft. I look forward to seeing her become the great writer I believe she will be.

    It was a good start into these series. I really liked it. Though, I have to confess, that sometimes characters where on my nerves. Because sometimes, I really didn't get why they did, or some other occasions why they didn't do some things. But that's the beauty of the story. Not to feel numb while reading.Bel was likeable and smart. But sometimes, she come up as a weak. Not 'weak' in that way as you think. I mean challenge after challenge for 6 years, she should be kickass. But somehow she come short on that. Like leaving the pride she left her boxing gloves there. And she just was typical wolf-girl. Not get me wrong, it's not bad to be 'typical'. But knowing her past is just feels like missing.Theo was alpha enough. But not where his mate related at the beginning. I mean come on! You just meet your mate and you’re like hush-hush. He can’t claim her until she knows, what they are to each other. Hello! How a girl should know when she didn't grow up among wolf's? She don't know what these feelings mean. And Bel couldn't find out they're mates until you would tell her. He’s waiting who knows what. And because of his cool/hot moments, she is confused and ends up on a date with someone else. There is saying I love. I don't know if it translates right from my language but here it is: 'Train aren't waiting while you're shiting." Hear that, Theo? There is vilain. Though, I don't know if you can call him that. He was just...I don't know how to describe him. He wasn’t exactly evil. He just was kinda overlooked. Or at least he felt like that. And he started to do some stupid things. And I couldn't believe, how everyone, vampire and werewolves, could don't see, who that guy is. Because the guy said some suspicious things, that made me questioning him. Why he exactly said something 'like that'? Not to mention Bel is empath, she should question this feeling she felt more.I have a lot of complaints for characters as you see. Because it's so easy to see from the side what they do wrong or not do anything at all. It really makes you wish to be able to be there and gave them some tips. lolBut despite those, I really enjoyed this journey. I'm so curious about other characters. From vampires and pack too witches and humans. What they are having in their future? I would look out for the next adventure. Which is coming soon, thank God.

    This was a weird experience for me. I used this book as a 'break book' from an intense series I am reading at the moment, you know those times when you just have to remove yourself from a series for a bit just to take a breath?Anyway, I enjoyed it, but it also didn't satisfy either. The premise is interesting and the cast of characters - werewoves, vampires, witches & druids - had potential, but it left it at potential, it was never realised.I couldn't quite work out whether this book was meant to be young adult, new adult, or adult as the dialogue and story style kept switching through all three. The characters had the potential to be interesting, but they remained very much one dimensional. I'll admit I'm don't have a problem with insta love in some books, but only if it's done well and there are very obvious reasons for it. The characters also have to be created in such a way as to make it believable. I just didn't feel it. Bel still 'loved' her ex and no matter how much she stated 'as a brother' I just didn't buy it. On to gripe two, the alphaness of the Alpha. I don't mind the alpha having a soft side with his mate, the growly exterior but the marshmallow centre is more than ok with me - to a point. But I think what makes an alpha Alpha is that the dominance never leaves, it can be modified, but it has to stay. In this scenario, Theo not only turned to jelly with his mate, he actually sorta turned whiney. Just not a good look.I also had problems with the 2000 year old vampire sounding like a bad pre-teen vampire cut out. It just wasn't realistic and to be honest was quite annoying.That said, I finished the book and it wasn't a hardship to read it. I just had to accept it for what it was. I downloaded it as a freebie on Amazon (it's still there as of today) and I'm very glad I didn't actually spend money on it. There is a second book available in the series and I'll read it if Amazon ever put it out for free, but I won't be buying it.
