Hot and steamy. Poor editing. Only 55 pages, a full story would have been more enjoyable.

Carrie Ann Ryan and her debut story are AWESOME! This is a short, paranormal romance that will heat your heart up and turn you into a forever fan! With an amazingly created alpha hero and a heroine that will tug at your heart strings, this is one story that you won't want to miss! Kade Jamieson is one HOT wolf! Oh my gosh. As I sat there reading his description in the story, my jaw dropped. He was absolutely yummy sounding!!!! And, after having just broken up with whom he thought was his life's mate, I just wanted to put myself in Melanie's shoes and wrap my arms around the hunky man and give him a hug! The attraction he felt to Melanie, though, was instant and steamy! WOW! I loved the way Kade treated Melanie....like he treasured her. He's over a 100 years old (after all, he's a wolf.....) and really knew how to treat a sexy woman. I loved the way he had conversations in his head with his wolf self. Hehehe. It really made for a bit of comedy in the story :-). Poor Melanie. She's got her PhD but absolutely no social life, save for her best friend. And what that best friend intends to set Melanie up for a blind date....well, I could feel Melanie's inner turmoil at not wanting that. But, in the end, she accepted, and what happens after that....well she met a sexy, gorgeous, takes-your-breath-away kind man, who happens to have a secret. I loved watching these two amazing characters interact. And with a few awesome secondary characters, I really hope that this won't be the end (pssst....check out Carrie's website....you'll see it's NOT the end...I can't wait for Spring of 2012!). Carrie Ann's debut is a rockin' one and shouldn't be missed by anyone who loves a fantastic paranormal romance filled with hot passion scenes and gorgeous man-wolves. Definitely a 5 Book worthy keeper in my opinion!

This novella had me panting for a werewolf of my own! I've always been a fan of werewolf love stories, but this one has it all. It's fun, sexy, hot and steamy! I was more than ready to be bitten and taken for a mate by the time Kade shucked off his clothes. Melanie's hesitancy to make a choice when there really wasn't one to be made had my blood pressure boiling, but in the end, all was right in the world, and I can't wait to get a glimpse of how they are doing when I read Jasper's story, A Taste For A Mate. Carrie Ann Ryan is delightfully talented, making me smile at her writing style - her werewolves have conversations between their human and wolf halves, which is charming and many times very funny. I have been avidly following her for a while now, and will continue to do so knowing that her work is top notch!

This "book" does not qualify as a book. It is only a short story, and a rather poor one. The story needs major rework to even qualify for a fair rating. No wonder the author does not want people to share it.

Contains an unoriginal plot. Appears to not have been edited. A disappointing purchase.

An okay short story, but read poorly in parts with obvious grammatical mistakes and words used out of context that were not the correct vocabulary for the thought being expressed. Overall, came across as a bit amateurish. Might have really benefitted from some professional editing.

Carrie Ann Ryan did a wonderful job creating a sensual, fast-pace, and fun love story. She brings her characters and story to life with beautiful descriptions and imagery.If you're looking for a steamy love story with a sexy werewolf, then this short paranormal is for you.

Loved this book. Mel and Kade made me happy. Great plot, voice and writing. I was happy with everything and really want to read more from the new author

This book leads you into a whole new world. I enjoy Carrie Ann Ryan’s writing. She brings to life her characters and makes you believe you are standing there next to them watching the story play out. This book is the first in the Redwood Pack series and a great opener and insight into how the pack works. I really liked reading it and will enjoy the rest of the series.

This story is the beginning. The beginning of something amazing. A plot that will pull you into its grasp until every additional story in this series is read. The Redwoods are an absolute pleasure to read and you will be oh, so thankful you picked it up. I personally, HATE when people rate a book terribly because of a book APP not the book itself. Not fair to the author in any way shape or form. So, read it and I hope you love it! Join their journey :)

I only wish it could have been longer! I will agree editing could have been better, but I got so into reading this I didn't care any longer.

I'm not even through the first love scene and can't stop laughing! This reads like a diary written by a high-schooler. Even the words during love-making, sex, whatever ' are immature. It took me back to those days when you thought you knew what you were doing and didn't . If the author is over 20, shame on you. Please don't attempt to write steamy books if this is your idea of hot. This book will not even raise ones temperature one degree (unless it's you're first). No thank you. Will not continue the series.

The story was only 59 pages so it was a quick read. Author seems able to do the steamier parts better than the story.

No depth, nothing original. Sort of a paranormal dog and pony show

An Alpha's Path is Book 1 in the Redwood Pack series by Carrie Ann Ryan. It was a great lead off to the series showcasing how Kade and Melanie met and became mated. It was very short so there wasn't a lot of room for character development or a more in depth plot. Overall, I did enjoy it immensely and look forward to reading more of this series.

ARC - I voluntarily offered to review this book with no obligations and my opinions are honest! This was a great read! I love the storytelling. The interaction between Melanie + Kade was so cute + sexy at the same time. They were attracted to each other. I would recommend this book. HEA ending!

I received a copy in return for an honest review. Melanie has a newly minted Phd and now the world is her oyster. But her friends think all work and no play has made Melanie a dull girl, indeed so a blind date is the solution. But when Melanie gets more than she bargained for, can she accept that humans share the Earth with others? An Alpha's Path by Carrie Ann Ryan is first in the Redwood Pack series. I loved that Ms. Ryan gave us an extremely intelligent female character in Melanie. She is dropped into a wold she doesn't understand but she tries. And Kane has found himself with a potential mate yet again but wants this one more than ever. I loved that Kane is determined to allow Melanie to choose. Even as his heart breaks he follows a code known only to him. He has a strong code of ethics even as it costs him everything....or does it? This story is a well written, quick read. I enjoyed meeting Kane and Melanie and look forward to where Ms. Ryan will take us next.

I loved this book. Great characters and story. It's a quick read and a quick introduction to this world. It pretty much focuses on our main characters and that's mostly who we get to know, except for their 2 best friends who set them up on the date. Mel and Kade have both had their head down and focused on work for quite a while for the most part and haven't had time for anything else. Their 2 best friends get involved and say enough is enough and set them up on a date with each other. Neither knows what to expect and weren't prepared for it to be more than just a date/one night. Mel has no idea that Kade is a werewolf and that she's his mate. She has a hard time because she is a chemist and so her thinking is very fact based and logical. It creates a problem for them as she is trying to wrap her mind around it and Kade tries to give her the time she needs. I liked the way the story was written and really enjoyed the characters. There was enough to keep my attention and it was a quick read. It enticed me into wanting to read the next book in the series and learn more about the Redwood pack. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.

A blind date with Kade, the Heir of the Redwood Pack, introduces Melanie to a world she had no idea existed. Pack politics come into play when Melanie hesitates in accepting Kade as her mate. This is a wonderful paranormal romance with lots of steamy passion and drama. I especially enjoyed the mix of strong characters in this story.

This is such a great start to the series. I definitely fell for Kade & his wolfie alpha heir self. Hope to see more of him

Short, sexy, entertaining escape into a magical world with a quirky love story. Melanie is a twenty-five year old chemist, she is career driven and ready to take on the world on her own terms after doing things dictated for her early in her life. She was only looking for a one night encounter to get out of her lab and live a little. Kade, a werewolf and the heir to the Redwood Pack has been burned by love once already and was just looking to have a relaxing night with a beautiful woman. Neither bargained on forever and though Kade knows right away Melanie is a lot harder to convince. Looking forward to visiting the Redwood Pack again.

It's overall a good fast read. I wanted to punch Melanie in the face, for not choosing Kade right off the back. Making Kade suffer like that. I wanted more information on Kade past, I felt like we didn't get enough of the information. Kade came off as a sweet loving werewolf. I would have like more of an ending between Kade and Melanie. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

I loved this book! This is the first book in the Redwood Pack series and so very worth the read! Kade is the heir to the pack and extremely Alpha in nature. Not to mention HOT! Melanie is a human who knows nothing of the supernatural and is slightly nerdy in my opinion. Together? They are explosive! I loved how they are together! Melanie did make me a little angry with being unable to make decisions but then I couldn't blame her when she knew nothing about their world. In the end they figure it out though and it is the start to a wonderful series! The only reason I gave this book 4 stars is because I really wish it was longer! I loved this couple and would love to have read more in depth about them.
