I enjoyed the first book. I was disappointed that Adam and Anna's relationship is less steady at the end of this book. Anna becomes stronger and that weakens them. It also changes the personality I liked in the 1st book and the first half of this one. Hopefully, the third book will fix the problems this one created. I hoped Adam and Anna would be a strong couple that confronted problems together. I was hoping for a relationship like that of Cat and Bones by Jeanienne Frost. Maybe the 3rd book will get them there.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I read book 1 in this series, Taming the Wolf back in November of last year. I loved it and couldn’t wait for the next book. Well, I then forgot that the 2nd book in this series came out in April. I was going thru my Goodreads’ bookshelves and noticed this. I was so excited that the book was out and I could read it. I immediately went to Amazon and purchased the book.
Anna’s strength is one of my favorite parts of this series. I could feel the struggles she went through internally. With all of the changes in her world and life, I can’t imagine how she took everything as well as she did. Her mate’s mother is constantly trying to get her to leave. She’s about to be challenged and all of a sudden there are vampires trying to grab and kill her. She faces all this with the strength of a heroine that I love to read about.
The world that Ms. Nelson built is very extensive and full of fun characters. I can’t wait to read more about Adam’s twin, Anthony and see how that plays out as well. Stephanie says that the 3rd book in the series should be out by fall/winter 2013. I can’t wait.
This book is for the paranormal lover who loves twists and turns. There are a few surprises in the book that I did not expect at all. I noticed that Ms. Nelson also writes another series, The Gwen Sparks series and I will definitely be trying that one out as well. I love her style of writing.

I had forgotten how much I loved the world of this series. Within a few pages I was sucked back to Anna's world and stayed firmly in place until I had read the entire book. Anna is just as flawed, strong, insecure, snarky, and fun as she was in book one and Adam is just as Alpha, although we did get to see glimpses of his inner weaknesses that he does not let others see. I loved how this book was not a "let's see who gets mated next" sequel, but a continuation of Adam and Anna's story as she takes on her role as Alpha female. This book has mystery, suspense, romance, a prophecy, a vamp I think I want to know more about, and a real jerk of a mother in law. Basically, it was a super fun read and I am already excited about the next book and plan to stalk the author's FB page for signs of a release date. If you have not read Taming the Wolf, it might be a better place to start so you know the background of the series. That being said, you could easily start here and feel like you were not missing huge gaps of content, but probably would not feel the emotional components as strongly.Was this review helpful?

Embracing the Wolf is the second book in the Anna Avery series. first was Taming the wolf. It is a good one, only little minus point is that Anna was in this one a bit to whiny sometimes in it.
With that been said, it picks right up where book one left off, we read about Anna and Adam who have the big yearly event of the wolfs to host.
Which means Adam's parents are there too and many other clans, it appears that someone is clearly after Anna and Adam too?
His parents who are royalty in the wolf world are not to happy with Anna who is a made wolf.
Tension goes up high when the have to find out who is after them, Adam's mother makes Anna believe to go away, that it is the only chance to keep Adam safe. Will she give in and leave Adam's side? The end is surprising for most I think, I did figure it out at a point. It is a good flowing story and has also vampires in it. Go get it, you won't regret it.
I received a copy of this book for a honest review.

Stephanie Nelson pens "Embracing the Wolf" the second book in the 'Anna Avery Series' in a plot that is filled with supernatural creatures, plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing, and some steamy romance. Between her well developed, strong characters and the fantastic plot, I couldn't put the book down. I honestly can't wait for the next book in the series and I do suggest reading the books in order so your not losing any information. Highly recommended for all romance and supernatural fans.

I received this book for a fair and honest review. This is the second book in the series.
This book picked up right where book 1 left off. Anna and Adam are not bonded. However not everyone is happy about that. Adam's parents do not approve, at all.
Someone is after Anna and Adam. The person it turns out to be was shocking to me. I totally didn't see that coming.
I feel Anthony is now obsessed with Anna. He insists that there is something between them. I wonder if its just because he's Adam's twin or if there is more to it.
I enjoyed reading about how Anna has fully accepted the wolf within her. As the title say...she embraced it. I think Anna will live up to her white wolf and shock them all.
I hope Anna finds the answers she's looking for. I am eager for book 3 to find out what is really going on.
