I absolutely loved Gone With the Wolf by Kristin Miller, I was addicted from the very first chapter. The descriptions of Emelia and Drake’s first encounter we’re so good I couldn’t help but smile and keep reading. Everything about Emelia screams independence and determination and Miller kept her true to her character throughout the entire book, not making Emelia sacrifice some key element of herself in order to catch her boss’s attention gave the story some bonus points. Even though Drake Wilder (who stole my breath from his swoon worthiness) could certainly be considered a Greek God and an alpha werewolf/CEO he changed throughout the story which only made him so much better. 
Gone with the Wolf held me captivated from the very beginning. I was absorbed into both Emelia and Drake’s lives devouring each word like it was the last with my kindle glued to my hands, heart clenching and full of anticipation until the very end. Gone with the Wolf is an easy read (I’m not saying that to knock Kristin Miller at all! I simply mean that it flows and will keep you reading) filled with exciting turn of events, amazing scenes and a flawless writing style that made the story magic.

Gone with the Wolf, by Kristin Miller is the first novel in her new series, Seattle Wolf Pack. Free-spirited and brash bartender Emelia Hudson wants nothing more than to make her Seattle-based bar succeed. She has poured her heart, soul and bank account into it, thinking she was the owner of the building, but she was the victim of a scam. The building belonged to the mega corporation Wilder Financial, whose CEO is alpha werewolf Drake Wilder. With a plan in her head to force a confrontation with Mr. Wilder, and win her building back, Emelia takes a temp job at the Wilder business. They meet under rather comical circumstances and the fur flies from there, because she is Drake’s Luminary, or soulmate. She’s also only human. Meanwhile Drake’s evil twin is plotting to take it all, the business, the pack and will stop at nothing to have it. Can Emelia allow herself to trust in Drake? Will Emelia live through the sibling rivalry?

Kristin Miller did a great job creating humorous situations, and some of the banter between the characters was very appealing. She even turned up the heat as the romantic tension between Drake and Emelia grew! Still, I felt I was missing something, a deep connection to the characters that made them totally likeable and believable for me! Drake, well, he was a typical over-bearing alpha, but wore his blinders too often. Talk about clueless in Seattle! As for Emelia, she was over the top, um, too blue collar, overly crass, overly snarky when it wasn’t called for, just too much for me! A reverse snob! The redeeming character for me, you ask? Logan, with only a couple of appearances, he completely held my interest! Dark, mysterious and strong, with some attitude/resentment alluded to!

This edition was provided by NetGalley and Entangled Publishing in exchange for my honest review.

    Take one Alpha male werewolf toss in a free-spirited bartender mix in some attraction and chemistry add a side of disgruntled sibling and you have one great story with Gone with the Wolf.




    Drake is hot, sexy and smart but he has this thing about control. Emelia is the perfect blend of spunk, independence and softness. I think it's great how Emelia stands up to him about what is important to her...no swooning heroine here. Also important is how Drake doesn't treat her like a mindless female. Despite Drake being an Alpha he didn't have this pretense of chest thumping "Me Tarzan, you Jane" attitude. Drake was masculine with the "Mine" but still respectful to her decisions. They are two characters that are a perfect balance for each other. BTW...is it wrong of me to think it's funny Drake didn't get Emelia's slang? In all honesty, Drake reaction and not getting Emelia's sarcasm is exactly what I expect of someone that has a few centuries under the belt, but it's still funny.




    You know what I really liked about this book? Despite the hot sexual content, the Drake and Emelia waited to have sex. No hopping into the sack in the first two chapters. There is an actual getting to know each other development between the two characters that I find refreshing. ***Little SPOILER alert! Even though the title of the book is Gone with the Wolf, I think author Kristin Miller made an excellent choice in having them watch Sabrina. One of my favorite movies and a great double meaning tie in (Read the book to find out why!). Okay, done with my spoiler***




    I will admit I particularly didn't care for the book cover. I would have given this book a 4-star rating if it wasn't for the cover. Drake and Emelia are two strong characters and the cover seems a bit...soft. Don't get me wrong, it's a great cover just not necessarily a great representation of this story. It conveyed a different storyline than what I expected and since to me a book is the whole package, I can only give it 3-stars.




    Cover aside, Gone with the Wolf is a fast paced, easy read full of twist and turns that will keep the reader pleasantly surprised. An all-around great book to past the afternoon away with.




    I received this book from JeepDiva in exchange for my honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated.

    Good 1st bk to start a series.

    Good character development. Started great, got a little so so but ended great. This is the first book from this author. Depending on who bk2 is I would follow this series. But I doubt I'd start a diff series. I'd like to see Trixie have a wolf find her. She was great. Or maybe Logan. They would be good together.
