Wolf Flight (Granite Lake Wolves #2)
Granite Lake Wolves, Book 2
Tad Maxwell’s workaholism serves to keep his bush-pilot company in the air, and his inner werewolf in check. In the two years since he discovered his heritage, he’s resisted the longing to test the power of his wolf side. It would mean compromising his human principles.
The second novella in the Granite Lake Wolves series, Wolf Flight is a quick, light read. This series presents some lupine lore and uses terms differently than other series; however, I am still somewhat new to this genre. In some series, omega wolves are described as the weakest shifters with the least control of their wolves--at the bottom of the lupus-garou pecking order. In Wolf Flight, omegas are presented as very rare wolves with mystical gifts essential to the well-being of the p...more
Tad Maxwell has known he is a wolf for the last two years, and he doesn’t see his status changing anytime soon. His sister, Robyn, has just been triggered and become the mate of the Granite Lake pack’s Alpha, and he is starting to get even more frustrated with his wolf side then before. His skin literally is itching for his wolf to be set free, but he will not do his First Mating with just anyone. He wants it to be special, and to be with his Mate. Little...more
Tad is unlike most other heroes that I can remember reading in recent history, and that is because he is an Omega. An Omega is someone in the pack that experiences others feelings and intents, almost like intuition, and is a natural peacekeeper who selflessly puts others needs before his own. An...more
Wolf Flight is the second book in the Granite Lake Wolves series by Vivian Arend and focuses on Tad and Missy’s relationship.
Both are friends from childhood and enjoyed a chaste teenage relationship that ended promptly when Missy moved away.
Now they’re in touch again and have agreed to meet up, which thanks to Missy’s job will be sooner rather than later.
While Tad might know he’s half wolf, an un-triggered one at that, he doesn’t know that Missy is in fact a full wolf. And when the...more

Missy is trying to escape forcibly being mated to the evil brother of her dead husband. She was made to marry XX, but he was not her true mate. Now she is trying to trigger a one way bond to a new wolf that will wipe out here...more
I really liked Missy and what she could do, with her being an omega wolf. Also nice to see how it worked with triggering the dormant wolf in Tad, and how it affected them.
I'm looking forward to reading more about the other couples and I really hope we'll be seeing more to the previous ones.
There's a bit more of POV switching in this one, but it felt smooth.
Tad Maxwell is half wolf, half human and will not come into his wolf unless he has sex with someone else of his kind. But Tad refuses to give into his wolf and a meaningless liaison, his human side and principals rule too strong. And so he fights every day to bury that part of hi...more
I liked Tad when he was introduced in the first book, but we really only got a quick glimpse of him. Readers found out he was a loving, over protective older brother, but that’s pretty much all we got. Tad was oh so much more than that.
Missy was desperate, but knew more about wolves and how things worked within packs than Tad. She felt the connection between her...more

While I enjoyed and will continue to read this series, it's a little disappointing that the plot between alpha battles were not a bigger part of the story. It just seems that so far the first and second books were all hormonal and the story line lacked character development. I think if there were more details and twists between good packs and bad packs, then the book would have been longer, more developed and us readers would have felt more of a connection to the characters. As is, it's an enjo...more
Read this review on my blog! --> Book TravelsThis is the second book in this sweet werewolf series. The fun part for me is the fact we already know the characters from previous books and have a few thoughts about the perfect mate for them.
Tad is a half wolf and needs a trigger to fully develop, we met him because his sister Robyn is now mated with Keil and their story was the first introduced to us in this series.
Tad always knew he needed a little help to became a wolf, but there’s a problem...more
I adore this story! I was intrigued by Tad's character in the first book in the series. He was our heroine's brother and he actually knew that he was a wolf, just hadn't been triggered and couldn't shift yet. When he has to cancel on his sister for their annual trip because of work, he gets a surprise. His high school crush is actually part of the company that hires him. And Missy is actually a wolf and wanting to sort of mate with him.
Her plans have to...more
