    Fantastic read!

    In the last year, I have read a lot of romance fiction with werewolves. Don't ask why, some people dig vampires, and instead I dig werewolves. But unfortunately, many of these stories fall into traps that make the relationship between the main pairing seem really shallow. "He's an alpha, I'm the omega, I am drawn to him for no other reason," or even worse, "I saw this guy for the first time for no more than 10 seconds, but I know he's my mate." Blech. I want build up. I want chemistry. I want arguments and discussions. I want teasing and playfulness. And in Unacceptable Risk, I got that and a whole lot more. Simon and Paul are the main pairing of this story. Simon is a werewolf, and Paul is a human vet that finds Simon in his wolf form injured on the road. How did Simon get injured? Well, it turns out that in werewolf society, being gay is considered a killable offense. They smell your attraction to other males and you get killed, no questions asked. Doesn't matter if you're just a kid, gay equals death. However, in Simon's pack, the Alpha had decided long ago to tolerate his sexuality, on the condition that he doesn't rise too high in rank, and keeps away from the kids in the pack. But that doesn't mean that everyone in the pack agrees with this decision, and as the Alpha gets older and weaker, it's only a matter of time before what little protection Simon received is lost forever. So along comes Paul, a lonely workaholic vet who doesn't have much in the way of friends or family. He quickly bonds with Simon's wolf form, and is incredibly suspicious when Simon shows up as a human later, claiming that his roommate's pet broke out of Paul's clinic and came home overnight. Simon's charms eventually wear down Paul's suspicions, and the two form a friendship that evolves into a relationship. This comes as a complete surprise to Paul, who had always identified as straight! But as their relationship develops, Paul's life becomes endangered by the very dangerous shift in power in Simon's pack... The chemistry between this pairing was very sweet, Simon was a real charmer while Paul was very caring. The time they spent going from strangers to friends to lovers was very well developed and great to read. The suspense felt from the looming threat of Simon's pack was palpable, and the resolution found was a satisfying "it gets better" ending rather than a "happily ever after" ending. Reading the story from beginning to end sent me on an emotional roller coaster, going from happiness at the very real love between Simon and Paul, to pure outrage at the werewolf society's archaic rules, and finally peace at the resolution. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves well rounded characters, romance, emotionally engaging plots, and sexy werewolves.

    Unacceptable risk of time

    I love wolf-mating books. This was a book that was its true title an unacceptable risk of time. The charterers were very hard to differ. The charters had chemistry that owns two stars, however you would have to get through a lot of blah blah blah. This author should not write wolf books, her mating seen was strange to say the least.
