Katelyn McBride’s life changed in an instant when her mother died. Uprooted from her California home, Katelyn was shipped to the middle of nowhere, Arkansas, to her only living relative, her grandfather. And now she has to start over in Wolf Springs, a tiny village in the Ozark Mountains. Like any small town, Wolf Springs has secrets. But the secrets hidden here are more sinister than Katelyn could ever imagine. It’s a town with a history that reaches back centuries, spans continents, and conceals terrifying truths. And Katelyn McBride is about to change everything.
Broken families, ageless grudges, forced alliances, and love that blooms in the darkest night—welcome to Wolf Springs.
When I first saw this books cover, I thought it was beautiful! I loved the head tilt on the girl with the guys hand supporting her, the moon in the background and the dark and eerie feeling the rest of the cover gives. It screams paranormal romance to me.
When Katelyn moves into her Grandfathers home after the death of her mother, she feels out of place and depressed from having to leave her happy life behind. She doesn’t want to live in the woods with a Grandfather she never really knew. We are introduced to not only her Grandfather but to Trick as well. Now let me tell you that Trick is a hottie with secrets! I fell in love with his words and his description. As if one hottie wasn’t enough, we are also introduced to Justin who has secrets of his own. This creates a love triangle for Katelyn but also “unleashes” secrets that she needs to figure out.
There was plenty of mystery and suspense to keep this book going with two hot guys to keep you interested enough to figure out which guy Katelyn would choose. I will say for me though, by halfway through the book it seems to slow down in plot progression. Then when you are nearing the end, it picks back up and throws you for some loops. This could have been just my experience with it and could be completely different for you though.
Another great series to add to your wishlist and devour in one sitting, but not one that was constant thrilling. I will continue the series to find out more. Just an okay book for me, but for you it could be magical.
Okay book, but it left me wanting more! 3 STARS
