I have purchased this book and was not ask by the Author to do a review. All thoughts here are 100% mine.
This was my first book by Melissa Haag. It was on my TBR list for such a long time! I feel a bit ashamed that I haven’t picked it up earlier! As the book is truly amazing!
Gabby’s brain is like a human fish finder. It comes in handy when she wants to avoid people. Mostly men. They seem to like her a bit too much. It’s lonely being different, but she’s adapted to it. Really. She just wishes she knew why she is different, though.
In her search for answers, she discovers a hidden community of werewolves. She immerses herself in their culture, learning about their world until she meets Clay. He’s unkempt, prone to mood swings, intense without saying a word, and he thinks Gabby is his.
It’s going to take every trick she knows to convince Clay to go away, and every bit of willpower not to fall for him when she discovers the man beneath the rough exterior.
Judgement has begun…
In here we meet Gabby, an orphaned girl, who is telling us the whole story. At the beginning she is only 16, but the real story begins when she is 18 and is just off to go to college.
Gabby is not a normal human. She is special. Except her abilities, that no one knows about, she is one of few humans that are compatible to be a mate to…werewolves. In order to find out more about herself, she moves to Sam, Elder of Werewolves Community. She lives with him 2 years. Their deal was simple. He will give her place to sleep and will take care of her, and she will go with him to werewolves compound every few weeks for introductions to meet a potential mate. For the 2 years she lived with him, nothing happened. Until her last Introduction, where she met Clay. And despite the butterflies in her stomach, she groaned. She was so near her freedom. She is feisty, stubborn and knows what she wants. And it’s no Clay. A man who is barely spending time as a human. He prefers being a wolf. Or that’s what Gabby thinks.
Clay is one sweetheart. He is caring and is determined to stay with Gabby. He is perfect for her. Even if it takes time for her to see that. And it’s not because he cleans, cooks and doesn’t speak. No he is perfect with the way he is taking care of her. Of what he has to endure to just simply be with her.
Her words, when she said that sometimes you don’t have to talk to someone to know them, moved my heart. Those words changed everything, as she was finally admitting that there is something between them.
When she starts her college. Everything changes for her. Her trust is tested. Her feeling are gradually changing towards one guy she was trying to run away from.
The book is amazing and I can’t wait to pick up the next part in the series!
Amazing, huge, fat 5 stars!
