I was actually enjoying this for the most part until......the hero ends up allowing 3 men (who recently beat the heroine brutally) to get off pretty easily, and then allows them to follow along with him and the heroine. He starts referring to them as if they were just uneducated, unruly teenagers, and then calls them his "fan club." The 3 men are supposed to just seem humorously pathetic. I don't care what their excuses were for beating the heroine. Imagine her having to be around men

Blackraven’s Review:

Alpha Wolf by Rebecca Royce has everything a reader could want in a paranormal romance: a strong and caring hero that is absolutely to-die-for, a heroine with an inner strength and kindness that will make you want to protect her with your own life, some misguided wolves who are smarter than the average bear, a couple of bad guys who definitely get what they deserve in the end, and a lunatic father who is constantly attacking his children. How can you go wrong? Did I forget to

First let me say, I’ve enjoyed all of the Westervelt novels, but ALPHA WOLF stood out among the pack for me. And the reason for that, a werewolf named Michael. We’ve met him before in the Westervelt series, but woozers, he took center stage in this story and left me breathless.

He’s not only a strong, powerful werewolf, but he’s sweet and funny. I loved his interactions with his new mate Scarlett and his reactions to the wolf pack in New Orleans. While reading, I found myself smiling and laughing

Short book, fast read but I had a hard time with the heroine who is so abused and so passive about the abuse. Also, this shifter world has witches and magic in addition to shifters. There is also a very messed up pack with infighting, murder, abuse and rape that the hero must straighten out while claiming his mate. Yet despite the violence and body count, somehow shifters are still supposed to be secret from humans. No doubt it didn't help that I came in at Book 5 with what is a dark storyline i ...more

If I could have given this 10 stars I would have. I'm never disappointed by this author's stories. I adore this series. If I had to complain about anything its that they are shorter stories and I'd love it if they were longer...

This pack is one of my all time favorites. This is a beautifully created pack world of Westervelt. All the best alpha males who love and worship their mates. Villains who make you cringe. Females who accept their roles in the pack and embrace their powers.

The Westervelt Wolves series is great, and Michael's story is freaking fabulous! I've loved him since the first book, and now I love him even more. His mate, Scarlett, has always been abused, but Michael's support changes every single aspect of her life, not to mention the other members of her disfunctional pack. I read this book in one sitting, because I just couldn't put it down. Rebecca Royce does a terrific job of drawing me in and making me anxious for the next story to come out. When can I ...more

Y'all, this book is a little problematic. Traumatic sexual experience solved by orgasm, the most mary Sue of heroines, and fated mates.

But I love fated mates and Mary Sues, so there's that. I loved this book. Naturally I picked it up in the middle of the series and have no regrets. I'm totally invested and this was like catnip. Booknip? I wanted to roll around in it. Rebecca Royce must have gone in my head when I wasn't looking, taking all the tropes I love in the world, and was like 'I will wr

Zoe’s Review:

After reading Alpha Wolf, I can only think “Wow! Where was I when this series began?” What an absolutely outstanding story. I was captivated from the very first page and the fascination didn’t let up until the very end. Who am I kidding…my fascination didn’t end at the end. It merely left me wanting to know what would happen next as well as what came before. Alpha Wolf is an absolutely compelling read.

Wendy's Review

Even though this is a series I had no trouble connecting to the characters in Alpha Wolf. Rebecca did a wonderful job of keeping the readers attention from the first word.

Michael Kane was an alpha wolf who was lonely and wanted his mate, but when push came to shove, the last place he expected to find her was in New Orleans. He was pursuing a tip that his sister was in New Orleans. When he found himself in a bar on his birthday, the last present he thought he would get was his mate

Michael has just learned his sister has been hidden by a spell. Now he is looking for her. It has brought him to New Orleans. He is sitting in a bar when he smells her. His mate. He sees Scarlett and knows something is wrong. She has been beaten so badly that she can barely walk or talk. Who would beat his mate? He just wants to kill someone, whoever touched her. Michael learns that the alpha of this pack has died with no one to fill in for him. 2 people have been fighting for alpha. 2 supposed ...more

Addicted to The Westervelt Wolves Series

A refreshing new outlook on Alpha packs and the true meaning of relationships. A struggle between right and wrong, good and bad. True mates and curses. Can the Westervelt pack survive or will dark magic consume them all?

For a relatively short story, it was pretty good. I loved Michael, and Scarlet was strong and brave without being tough and bad-ass, which I really liked. It made her real and lovable.

Michael is my FAVORITE Westervelt brother!

His story is also my favorite! So adorbs my baby Michael! Also so perfect for Scarlett!

The Reluctant King who waits so long for his mate - to the point of losing hope and thinking of ritual suicide - and the Latent Wolf who is abused her whole life. Who better to appreciate and treasure Scarlett than Michael? Michael who has been so lonely and tired for so long, and now he finds Scarlett when he least expects her. Scarlett who spent her whole life thin

Alpha Wolf was a wonderful story and I now love Michael even more as he shows Scarlett all the love and patience she needed to bring forth her true self and overcome her fears because of the terrible abuse she endured since she was a little girl. Michael would be a wonderful leader, but in his heart he knows this is not for him. The conversations with their inner wolf continues to be a joy to read and at times very humorous, there are also were some very good action scenes in this story. I highl ...more

Rebecca Royce writes some incredible paranormal novels and Alpha Wolf is no different. The wolves and their world are brought to living color and set in an amazing world where all things are possible. I was caught up from the first page and tossed on the sea of amazing words, which carried me until the very end. I became enthralled with the love among the wolves. I highly recommend that you pick up Alpha Wolf and give the writing of Rebecca Royce a read.

I came across this when I was just having a browse around the internet and I was pleasantly surprised. The book was shorter than what I normally read but I didn't feel that it lacked in terms of character development and story progression.
I really enjoyed the main characters who I thought had good chemistry. I also thought that the author had made an interesting twist in terms of plot and she did an amazing job of keeping my interest. All in all i thoroughly enjoyed the book and would recommend

Because of the heroine's past they do not seem to succumb to instantaneous mating (well, in fact it's quite as fast as for the others,but they take time to talk and begin to know each other so it didn't seem to be as fast), and there's several funny scenes.

In search of his sister in New Orleans, Michael finds his mate instead. But Scarlett is broken, nearly destroyed. With doom around the corner, Michael Kane has no time to lose. If he can save his mate, perhaps there will be a chance for all of them. Or maybe it’s already too late.

Left with no other choice, Michael will have to teach the wolves in the New Orleans pack how real Alpha shifters behave, while showing his mate he is a man of his word.

Well, this is certainly something new - the wolf talking with the man and the other way around. That's not too bad , at least you have someone to talk to all the time. And it is very well written ,like something natural and normal.

The book was very sweet - I liked the story, the characters, just everything. The end was nice but not conclusive at all.
