Bark's Book Nonsense
I’ve only read one book by author Lora Leigh. It was called Menage A Magick and I picked it up because of the catchy blurbage that delivered on the promise of the heroine being “the filling in a wizard sandwich”. Tell me, could you have resisted?

Anyway it was okay, nothing special, nothing awful so I decided to try this one when it turned up in audiobook format. I’ll read anything on audio and I mistakenly thought this was Book 1 in the Wolf Breeds series
2.5 'Hopeful' Stars
Audiobook version

This reminded me so much of a Laurann Dohner New Species book. That's a positive. Everything was there: great setup & story idea, strong characters with sizzling chemistry, My only issue was that the story was entirely too short. Even 50 more pages building up the background and their history, drawing out Wolfe's search for Hope, how torn he is between his rage and his lust for her. There's just not quite enough here. It would make a great Prologue to anot
Way too short to make this one really work- Wolfe came off too harsh and unreasonable- BUT I love what I see of these two later on in the books ...

I’m hoping LL will revamp and expand. Though only $2.99 from EC, it’s too short by far.

This is one of Lora Leigh's early entries in her Breeds series, a short story published with Ellora's Cave. In the years since, the series has moved to mainstream publisher Berkley, and she has significantly expanded the world she has created.

I'm one of those people who really likes to read a series in order. This can become quite a stress when publication order and chronological order differ and I have to choose one or the other to follow. In this case, I'm working with the series chronology pr
1.5 stars Warning, Will Robinson...This tale is illogical!

First, apologies to my friends who loved this. I simply cannot agree on this one.

It is insulting to readers' intelligence when authors are very inconsistent with their own world building as is the case in Wolfe's Hope. Given what the readers know about breeds after just one story, most of this tale is not logical. For the record, I have generally enjoyed the Breeds series up until the past couple of books when the logic problems and som
Shannon (Savhage Temptrest)
"Wolfe's Hope" by Lora Leigh is a short story in the Breeds series that was very informative and erotic with just a touch of violence.

This is the backstory for Wolfe, the Wolf Breed leader of a pack that escaped a Genetics Council lab the same time the Feline Breeds revealed themselves to the world, and his mate Hope, the daughter of one of the scientists that ran the Breeds lab.

Although this was just a short story, it gave a lot of information on relationship between Wolfe and Hope, and it intr

Giving this a 2.5. Nothing impressive. The foreplay ain't to shabby though. 3/4 of the books was like this:-


But hey, it's only 41 pages.

Okay, sooooo I went to read the ones in order of publication rather than chronology, because I was getting frustrated with continuity issues. The earlier ones are SUBSTANTIALLY CRAPPIER, just so you know. This one too was pretty crappy.
Another Hot story, three stars only because there was not a lot to this one, very short
J-J lover of books
This one was a short read.

Firstly i hate Wolfe, he is a arsehole and so so cruel to Hope. How could he even believe she could be with another? If he knew anything about being mated he would of known Hope wouldn't be able to bare another man touching her. For him to believe the photo's the bitch sent him. To torture her while she was in need. That is just cruel, so very cruel. Hope's mother, and i use that word very,very loosely. she gives mothers a bad name. Delia Bainesmith is no mother. She u
Like another reviewer stated, this short story just didn't have enough pages to show the character depth in Wolfe that is later made evident. He came across as cruel and extremely sadistic through his actions and dialogue. I came back to this short story after having read many of the later Breeds novels and was more than slightly aghast at his crude accusations and treatment of his Mate.
Even after the major issue is resolved I felt that he failed to even show adequate remorse for his actions. H

I promise that the low rating is not due to this being such a short story, though I would have appreciated at least a novella length allowance for more depth of the characters. The setup was great, as a way to introduce the wolf breeds. But what Wolfe does to Hope did not sit well with me. How Hope instantly forgives Wolfe sat even worse. Maybe I should be happy this was not longer.
This book was so disappointing and ridiculous. I feel generous giving it 2 stars, but I've read worse.

The book was very short; I read it in 30 minutes. But it was so random and nothing really felt resolved. Wolfe was a jerk and Hope came off as weak. I get that she loves him, but he shouldn't have treated her that way, and then she's just forgives him instantly.

The whole book felt very rushed and forced. It was too short for any real plot, completely predictable, and pretty boring. Not to ment

What a disappointment!!! I was so looking forward to Hope and Wolf’s story but all I read was more explicit mating frenzies….with a lot of same from previous books

For the record, I'm a Lora Leigh fan and love the Breed series. Sadly, I had just finished Tanner's Scheme (Breed's 9) earlier today and found it a disappointing read. So I picked up Wolfe's Hope (Breed's 10) thinking that perhaps Leigh would redeem herself. But no. To be sure, I thought that Wolfe's Hope had the potential to be a really good short story but, in the end, it fell flat for me.

Here's my take on the novella: ***CONTAINS SPOILERS***

Lenna Wright-Berry
This was a very fast read but long story short, Wolfe survived the explosives he set in the labs and saved his pack and wanted to go back for Hope but never did until 6 years later after being set up by Hopes mother to bring in out in the open by sending him photos of Hope having men having sex with her. Wolfe kidnaps Hope in getting answers about her mother but Hope was being used as well and when her mother shows up to kill him and her daughter, she never expected her pet to do her in.
My least favorite of this series. I'm not entirely sure that Lora Leigh even wrote this. It really seemed to read more like a ghost writer wrote it. I don't understand why the entire rest of the Breeds series books are all 100-250 pages but this one was 41 pages? It had no relevance whatsoever to the series as a whole...there was no mention of Callan Lyons, the other couples, Sanctuary, or anything at all referenced to the past books. The last couple books going back to Megan's Mark were in the ...more
First off, let me thank any deity that is listening that this story wasn't any longer because it was awful.

Second, this story made no sense. It flies in the face of everything that Lora Leigh has created in her Breed saga, blatantly disregarding all of it, for what, a quickie story?

THIRDLY, I am so tired of reading stories about hymens needing to be popped or being popped during the first time. So tired. This is the 21st fucking century, people, let's quit that.

Fourth, Wolfe was a dickhole piece

This is the first Breed book that I read oh so many years ago. At the time it was the only Breed book available. I remember being hooked and waiting for the next one. I was so intrigued by with the whole concept of the Breeds and wanted to know more about them. This story provides very little information on the Breeds or the Council. It is a short story after all. I would like to see more of Wolfe in the later books and maybe that will happen since he is part of the Breed Council. I also hope to ...more

Wolfe & Hope were mated when she was 17 & he was still in the labs. Her mother is one of the evil people running the labs & convinces Hope that Wolfe is dead when the labs are destroyed. So for years she's believed that he's dead & has suffered because she's his mate. Then he finally finds her & basically kidnaps her then sexually tortures her because he believes she's been unfaithful. That's it. That's the whole story. No chemistry what-so-ever. And what happened to Breeds b ...more
Talk about sleeping beauty spinoff. Hope is a victem, her mother is a witch and Prince Charming is a...wolfe? Get beyond wanting to smack Hope up side of her head shouting "Get a life, Stupid girl!" and it isn't a bad book at all.
I wish I never read that. Seriously, what was that?
The previous reviews explain very well my point of view.
It was like the other books, but condensated. The problem is: doing that with only 41 pages ends up with a failure. The result of whatever the author tried to do is: a non logical story, non charismatic and ridiculous characters, a really strange sex scene (between rape, torture and consent), a too easy evil end, a WAY TOO EASY scene of forgiveness dripping with love.

Wolfe seemed to be suc
Dorothy Martin
I love all the breed books, i think this one about Wolfs Hope should have started from the very beginning. It should also be in a book by itself, it deserves that much more than a short story in an anthology. I just wanted to express my opinion, I Really have to be Lora Leighs biggest fan, have all of her books except #2 and #3 in The Lies Men Series. I have been going crazy looking for them, and if there only in e book then I'm screwed because I can"t afford an e reader.

Thanks for listening,
This is an introductory short story to the Wolf Breeds series in "The Breeds" continuum. Detailing the mating and troubles between Wolfe and Hope, daughter of the scientist who created Wolfe, and a sadistic, cold, unfeeling human being through and through. My greatest criticism is that it is a short story. These characters are strong and had a right to be full developed and given their own story that is more than just a few pages long. However, like all Leigh books, it is a great read and filled ...more
Heather  *trying to find a good book*
Ok I found a breeds book I didn't care for. Really quick read.

Wolfe was forced mated to the 17 year old Hope. Her mother used Hope as her first test subject on Breeding the Breeds. Tossing her own daughter to the Wolves. The Lab exploaded and Hope spent the next 6 years thinking Wolfe was dead.

To me Wolfe was an A$$. He should have been able to scent a lie and the truth from Hope without torturing her like that. Don't get me wrong bondage can be fun along with orgasm denial but that was unjust
A different approach to most of her Breed stories, I don't like that Wolfe couldn't see past his own fury to trust Hope and I think she let him away with it too easily.
Chloe Schell
This book was one of the shortest ones in the series. I wish there had been more to the story such as the characters background.
