Overview

Ava Garnier is the middle daughter of WhitePaw's Alpha pair and she's spent almost a decade preparing to take over her father's role as leader of the Pack.

There's one big snag and his name is Kaden Black. Kaden assumes that because he's the Beta of the pack, the position is automatically his.

Ava's had a crush on Kaden for years but he's never given her the time of day...until her sister marries his best friend. Now sparks are flying and there's only a week until her father decides who will become the next Alpha of WhitePaw pack. The question is, who will come out on top?

EXCERPT

"Ava," he pulled her to a stop. He felt like such an ass. She'd opened up to him. Showed a different side of herself. Shared herself. Been honest about her desires. And he'd squashed all that...just so he could keep his neat and tidy life in safe compartments. Which was ironic, considering that what he wanted to do with her was far from neat and tidy.

"I didn't mean to upset you," he said, keeping his voice soft.

"You didn't," she said nonchalantly. But the words were too automatic. Too quick. She paused and glanced away. "You were being honest and I can appreciate that," she amended.

She thought he was being honest? Far from it, beautiful. Honest was wanting to press her up against the side of the house, letting his hands and lips investigate everything his eyes could see.

"Then why won't you look at me?" He gripped her upper arms and squeezed gently.

"Because--" she cried, her gaze snapping to his. An electric current zapped between them, heating him from head to toe.

"Because..." he prompted, a heartbeat away from kissing her into oblivion.

Eyes pleading, she said, "if I look at you, I'll want to kiss you. And if I kiss you, I won't be able to stop."

Editorial Reviews

Booked & Loaded - Gaele Reviewer
" There is sexual tension, not truly relieved with some smoking hot sex scenes near the end of the book, and it is a romance with a happy-for-now ending"
My Reading Obsession - Carin Walker
"This is paranormal romance at its best, the fact that the characters in the book are werewolves just seems natural, never like an afterthought. "
Reading Between The Wines - Viviana Izzo
"Two individuals going after the head position of leader of the pack. Both have valid reasons as to why they should be the Alpha. They must learn to work together and to trust each other. The tension that Selena creates between Ava and Kaden drives the story forward, capturing you at every page. The heat Ava and Kaden exude, wow, hot!! Then add Kaden's good looks and smooth lines, you'll swoon!!"

A friend of mine who is just as much of a “Book-a-holic” as I am, if not more (gasp, can that even be?) posted a comment on the author’s fanpage which caught my attention. It included the following “He does GROWWWWWL when he…. you know”. If that doesn’t get your attention, than I don’t know what will. So a few posts back and forth, I got the name of the book and began to look up the author, Selena Blake. It turns out that “Ready & Willing” is a free book for members of her site! Originally, she was posting each chapter on her blog, but now you can purchase the entire book online! Two individuals going after the head position of leader of the pack. Both have valid reasons as to why they should be the Alpha. They must learn to work together and to trust each other. The tension that Selena creates between Ava and Kaden drives the story forward, capturing you at every page. The heat Ava and Kaden exude, wow, hot!! Then add Kaden’s good looks and smooth lines, you’ll swoon!! Selena has a smooth writing style that sucks you into the story. The characters are filled with emotions, depth, and leave you wanting to know them better. Though this was a quick read, you got a full story. Never did I feel like it was being rushed, or something was missing.

This book contained the delicious heat we've come to crave from Selena Blake's story telling. She paints a story that has us panting right along with Kaden and Ava by the time they do come together! :) I'm not one to recap an entire book leaving you no reason to read it or to throw out spoilers, but I think you will be pleasantly surprised by story she weaves. Now, where can I find my Kaden Black? ;)

Excellent Shifter Story! This is a wonderful wolf shape shifter story. An alpha male and an alpha female vying for the same position in the pack made for some very interesting fireworks not to mention the chemistry between the two characters was off the scale. The main and supporting characters were well developed. The storyline grabbed you from the start and did not let up until the end which I found quite satisfying. I would love to see another book with these characters. Highly recommend.

Good story. I recommend it and the rest of her books. I wasn't sure at first, but it got going in a hurry. Only suggestion, keep reading the rest of the books in this series. But start with the first one. ENJOY!! If you like this and haven't read her "Cajun Werewolf" series, I highly recommend. HOT!!
