The action and excitement starts from the very beginning with Hettie Ivers’ book, Slip of Fate. Hoping to reunite with her brother following the passing of their mother, 18-year-old, Melina ends up in a world she never imagined existed. Milena Caro sets off on an adventure to another country to find her brother, Raul, and ends up a kidnapping victim. Her kidnapper takes her to the Reinoso clan compound in hopes of making a deal with the clan’s Alpha to save his son. Things don’t end up going his way and Melina ends up in the custody of the Reinoso family, a family of werelocks. Milena meets multiple members of the Reinoso clan compound, including Remy, Alcaeus, Alessandra, Alex, and the clan doctor, Kai. The members of the clan subject her to numerous inexplicable “treatments” for her assorted injuries. Despite her less than hospitable treatment by many people in the compound, Melina forms a friendly bond with the eldest member of the family, Alcaeus. To make matters worse, as well as more confusing, Milena finds herself attracted to Alex, the Alpha of the family. Since becoming his hostage, Alex sends Milena incredibly mixed signals. One minute he wants her gone, the next minute he is staking a claim to her. There is also a tremendous amount of passion ignited between the two, how they will act on it remains the question. This is a rather quick read. Milena’s unbelievable situation pulls you in so you want to find out if she escapes from her captures to find her brother or if she stays at her present location. Does she end up falling for Alex, the man who has threatened her brother’s life, or does she put family first? Hettie Ivers leaves you with a cliffhanger making you yearn for more of these characters who quickly grab a hold of you and don’t let go. Even if you just read this book, do it. As someone who has now read the first three books in this series, I highly recommend the prequel, Girl from Jussara and the follow up to Slip of Fate, Fear the Heart.

This is where my obsession with the series and the author began. I fell in love with this series the moment it broke the monotonous formula that many werewolf stories follow. If you love werewolf stories and you're looking for a breath of fresh air regarding the genre. Clear your schedule and give this book a try.

If you like to escape into steamy stories that have a lot of drama between the heroine and hero (or antihero) and also compelling plots, this is the book---and the series---for you. It’s actually not even the type of book that I normally read, so it’s a testament to how well it’s written that it gets five out of five stars from someone who is generally not into books with werewolves, violence, strong language, or sexual situations. But in this case none of these elements are thrown in just for the sake of having them there; they are used to move the characters and the plot forward. This is a very well-written story that left me wanting to read book 2.

I love this book. Ivers mixes super sexy werelocks, a young damsel in distress, steamy sexuality and pearls of humor into a brand new spin on the werewolf romance. I love her characters, especially Alcaeus. I already read this story twice and can't wait to read part 2.

Truly a refreshing spin on the werewolf trope! These aren't your mindless, cave-dwelling, neanderthal Alpha-male types--well, okay, sometimes they are--but Ivers balances that with wit and worldly sophistication and knowledge of great wine. We all love a bad-boy/bully anti-hero type who will be made to suffer and eat his words, right? Well, this series has got that going for it and so much more. What starts out as a simple story about a girl stumbling into the wolf's den is not so simple at all. And by book 3 (which I've just finished reading) your mind will officially be blown by everything that happens to our accidental hero, Milena, that you should have seen coming but didn't.

What happens when you are kidnapped and beaten. When you think you should die but dont? When everything you thought was true, turns out to be wrong? It's all revealed in this story. It ends on a cliff hanger, which is the worst part of this book.

I’m a sucker for a good romance and some steam added into the paranormal jumble. Slip of Fate follows the journey of Milena as she makes the decision to find her brother. She has lost her mother and is all alone in the world. The one connection she has is to Raul. If she can find him, then maybe she can find some sort of order in her life again. Maybe she can feel stronger over all. Right off the bat, Hettie leads us into the turmoil. Milena is kidnapped at the airport when she lands in South America. Scared and confused, she has no idea what it is that she’s done or why. Her kidnappers take her to somewhere and inform her she’s going to be a trade off for the live of another. She figures that pretty much, this is it? This is the end of her life and how can she possibly survive anything more? She had been assaulted in more than one way just in the drive from one destination to another. But now, her path is altered and she finds conflicting emotions of calm, fear, peace, lust and anger. Who can she trust? Can she trust the two men and woman who say that she can’t be handed over to Alex because of her brother? She asks all these questions and she can’t get a clear answer. As the arguments about her status ensue, she meets Alex for the first time. It’s a meeting that sets the precedence of the rest of the book. From there, Hettie takes you on a paranormal roller coaster as you try to sort out the true complexity of the werelock history and culture. She feeds you little snippets of each character past to keep you engaged and guessing. The complexity of the relationship between the characters is gripping! If you were to stop and look at the relationship between Milena and Alex, Milena and Remy, Milena and Alaceaus especially, it’s really interesting. At any time Hettie could have shifted. She could have had the characters focus change into an even more complex story. That is just one of the things that keep you engrossed into the story as a whole. Milena has to face for the very first time as well the true attraction she can have to another person. Let alone three! She’s been an innocent that way for so long, she’s does not trust what it all really means. With a man who makes no apologies for his escapades, she questions if she isn’t just another conquest along the way. As the story unfolds, she keeps trying to find the truth, even when it knocks her down. When I do a review, I try to add in something that I might not have cared for, or would have liked changed. The only thing I would have loved is if it was longer and the whole story in one. But if that happened, then there would be no fun for Hettie right? This book is truly a roller coaster ride! Hettie left it at the very best possible cliff
