When I first started this novel and met the male that I thought was the Hero, I wanted to do this to the author:

(On another note: that gif is a guy trying to rob a woman of her purse and she yanked that a-hole and slammed him to the ground! Woo Hoo!!!)

So I read the first chapter and a craving to beat the crap out of the author rushes through me. I'm hot and pissed! How dare she make this evil son of a bitch the hero? What is wrong with her? Who would love him? This just sends

Escaping, but unable to walk, or climb a fence to freedom she is befriended by a mysterious wolf with big green eyes, for some reason she trusts this wolf.

I was pleasantly surprised by this particular shifter book. Everything about this book was enjoyable for a lot of reasons mainly though because the characters were believable and real. The Wolf's Haven is truly that a haven for Tamara. Here's why I believe this:

Tamara wants desperately to get out of her abusive relationship with Brad. Brad is nothing more than a liar and thief trying to make Tamara be a part of his plans. Tamara knows that she needs to get away from Brad no matter the cost or wh

I don't think there was enough of Wolf's Haven. It read as a very condensed snippet from what could have been a larger work. There was very little narrative tension and what there was, was too easily resolved. I would have liked more pathos from all of the characters. A little more fall-out between past and present actions and more ramifications from the events that open the book. Considering how it opens, the female lead isn't nearly as damaged as I would have thought. The male lead also falls ...more

I usually don't like short stories or novellas; but this one was pretty good. The hero, Devin, was very sexy and sweet. I'm glad to know that it is the first bookmark in a series on Wolf Haven. I'll be reading book two next!

This really was a great book. I had my doubts when I first started reading Wolf's Haven but those doubts were quickly diminished. I really liked Tamara, she was in an abusive relationship and escapes to make a new life for herself. When she meets Devin, who just so happens to be a shape shifter! I loved Devin, he was a tragic soul that was really just searching for love that he never had.

Tamara was a great character because while meek she was also strong, Devin was an awesome character because

The first book in the Caedmon Wolves series has a unique twist to the shapeshifter world.

Tamara is a human woman on the run and is rescued by Devin, who takes her someplace safe. The romance between the two slowly builds even though there is a strong attraction. The author has done a great job of conveying the emotions of the characters of this story and the reader becomes bewitched by the characters as soon as the story begins.
The suspense builds as Devin has to return to his pack to stop his

Pretty interesting. I might have to continue on to book two. This one ends but doesn't really resolve any issues that it started. Which was probably the clever author's intention to keep us reading the series! I liked Devin and Tamara as a couple, as much a couple as you can be in a week, but kinda felt like their relationship was a bit glossed over. On my Were Scale of Hotness, 3 stars.

OMG! The hero in this book was to die for. There were 1 or 2 sex scenes that were smoking HOT! The ending wrapped up rather nicely, but the author hints at a second book that I want NOW

It felt like the novel was cut very short. I could of enjoyed it more if there was more of a story between Devin and Tamara, however there wasn't much there at all!

It was an okay book. Good for when you're on the go, or need to kill some time. It's a short read less than 90 pages on Nook, so everything is fast paced. All in all it was ok.

Wolves are great

Devin and Tamara are a great couple, each dealing with their own issues. For Devin it is rejection and Tamara abuse, but their attraction overcomes all. I look toward to finding out more in this series

Start to a good series

Can't wait to read the rest of this series to see what happens with the Caedmon Wolf pack. Will they overcome all the tragedy that has happened & become a stronger pack?

I love reading shifter books. This book really caught my interest and I couldn't put it down. There was a fresh spin on the shifter world that I enjoyed reading.

I'm just not that into this one. I have pushed pause and maybe I will get back to it. Too many books in my TBR list to struggle to finish something. I will just try it again later.
