3.5 stars!
Nothing To See Here
I bounced between giving this a 3 star rating and a 2 star rating. It wasn't an easy decision, and I take my ratings very importantly because I don't want to do any authors wrong, they work hard to bring us what they believe is excellent reading material. Is it their fault that I may not agree with them?

In the end I had to settle for a 2 (2.5 if you want to be specific - rounding it up to three for the shiny stars benefit).

5 = I fucking loved it, adored it, will re-read it over and over, it's a

Oh My Word.
This is apparently one of Mina Carter's first published works. I love it.
We meet Penny that was bitten by a werewolf. She is on the run from her previous pack alpha, Jimmy who is just a no-good idiot who want to oppress everyone in the pack by pain and violence.

Penny is an alpha she-wolf, but everyone has kept her in the dark. She lives in a little town in the middle of nowhere in the hopes to keep safe. Problem is she is going into her heat and she is going through it with no male t

Yeah! After reading the reviews I was hesitant but being the stubborn person that I am I have found after some time that I don't agree with all of the reviews I read. I bought it anyway and I'm glad I did. I really enjoyed this story a lot. It is definitely up my favorite genre alley and had some Hot Steamy scenes. Phew, fan-fan-fan. Penny's Ex-Pack Alpha Big Jimmy really had some psycho ideas going on in his pack. Lucky for Penny Cade came along when he did(in more ways than one). I recommend ...more

I rarely give 5* ratings, but this story really impressed me. Carter managed to fit a lot of solid story elements into what appears to be a short-ish story.

Characters are believable (for the most part -- Penny's change of heart toward Cade is a bit fast, but that's really my only complaint...), it's deliciously steamy (ahem), the plot doesn't overstay its welcome (though I do wish Carter would've added an Epilogue), the closure is satisfactory, and the HEA is awesome.

Yeah, definitely a good read

Exciting and gripping, absolute must read!

This book is highly readable with a story that moves at a really good pace. The characters are strong and easy to identify with. The storyline was relatable and interesting. I mean she's on the run, she thinks she's got her past behind her, and then life surprises her. Penny is a strong female character and Mina Carter writes her characters with flaws and strengths. I loved this story and I highly recommended it!

Fast paced with some edge of your seat action, this was one fun and sexy read! I adore Mina Carter's books and this one was no different. I really liked Penny. She's very strong and feisty. Cade's this sexy and mysterious guy that you just crave to know more about. I loved his protectiveness of Penny. They definitely made for an extremely hot pair.
This was a great read and I would love for Mina to revisit these characters someday.

Finding love the hard way

I am told this is an early work of Mina's and you can only tell because of some of the phrases used in the story. The overall story I loved. If it weren't trying to understand some of the other this book would have received a five star rating. The only thing missing is where Penny finds out she is an alpha female.

BAM BAM BAM The plot and characters were alright but everything was incredibly rushed. The whole thing progressed as fast as bullets .. okay not that fast DUH but something like that. I didn't get to know the characters that well but Penny and Cade had good chemistry. The villain was extremely one dimensional though.

I really need more of this book and the delicious Alpha Cade <3 ;)

OhMyGod!! I really don't get what all the medium or bad reviews are all about because this book is Awesome !

I loved it and honestly wish this was a series or the book was longer 'cause I'm desperate to have ,,, MORE!!! ;)

I'm stumped on what rating to give this. I liked the story, but I thought it was a little rushed. There is only so much you can do with a short story and I thought there was too much being crammed into this story. The two characters went from being very independent to loving each other over night. I thought they needed a little more relationship building or something.

Mina Carter is a great author, but the prices charged for her short books make me carefully consider whether to buy or not-and "not" wins more than she probably would prefer. I expect to be bowled over by a story to justify the purchase, and some of the books just haven't "wowed" me enough.

h on the run from V. H finds her, shags her, bcos if h doesn't get shagged she'll turn feral or whatever. then villain and his goons find them, fight with the H, who kills the V cos he's bigger and more badass... and oh, they're having pups... not too bad. but not that great either.

This was a really interesting read. It had some really rough and rather violent scenes. Aside from that there is plenty of steam and growly alphaness in this book! I would be interested in seeing this become a series to see what happens next!

Enjoyable

I enjoyed reading Penny and Cade's story, but I was left feeling there were pieces missing. Otherwise it was a good story. I liked the characters and there interactions, as well as the premise of the story. I am looking forward to reading more by this author.

A bit different, Penny's a wolf turned because she was bitten. Living alone because her new Pack Alpha is crazy & mean, so she's pretty much on the run.

I love a good fight, working at putting down the bad guys! Good should always win in the end. :-)

Enjoy!! I did!

Same as all the rest. The story is there but the author just stops developing it and rushes to end it as soon as possible.
