Synopsis from Goodreads:

Jacque Pierce was just an ordinary 17-year-old girl getting ready to start her senior year in high school in Coldspring, Texas. When a mysterious foreign exchange student from Romania moves in across the street, Jacque and her two best friends, Sally and Jen, don't realize the last two weeks of their summer are going to get a lot more interesting.

From the moment Jacque sets eyes on Fane she feels an instant connection, a pull like a moth to a flame. Little does she know that the flame she is drawn to is actually a Canis lupis, werewolf, and she just happens to be his mate; the other half of his soul.

The problem is Fane is not the only wolf in Coldspring, Texas.

Just as Fane and Jacque are getting to know each other, another wolf steps out to try and claim Jacque as his mate. Fane will now have to fight for the right to complete the mating bond, something that is his right by birth but is being denied him by a crazed Alpha. Will the love Fane has for Jacque be enough to give him the strength to defeat his enemy, will Jacque accept that she is Fane's mate and complete the bond between them?

My Review:

This novel takes you on a very intense and wild ride. Loftis brings this story forward with her fun loving writing style that draws you in. Although this is in essence a supernatural novel Loftis makes it easy to relate to and visualise. I also appreciate how she defines her version of werewolf without stepping out of her story proper. All of the background information is worked into the action and reaction of the story itself.

Loftis has created a cast of very approachable characters. It was very unique watching the 2 main characters coming from such different backgrounds trying to work together and become one. The switching of perspectives between the two main characters allows you to know them both intimately. I also appreciate how Fane’s Romanian tongue and culture make their way into the story and how Loftis ensures all is clear without breaking the forward flow of the story. The supporting cast in this novel was priceless. I absolutely loved the best friends. The dialogue was also absolutely priceless. It was perfect. It helped all of the characters become much more authentic and real.

Overall? I read the entire novel in a single sitting. If my TBR pile weren’t a mile high I would have dove right into the next novel in the series. This novel doesn’t quite end in a cliffhanger but it’s a very open ending that leaves you wanting more.
