Graham's story. He's a Big Bad Wolf.

I don’t typically dive into a series at the sixth installment, but when Jennifer Ashley’s WILD WOLF landed on my doorstep I couldn’t resist the call of her werewolves. Fortunately for me, this book stands well enough on its own and the writing drew me in to the point of needing to go back, and start the SHIFTERS UNBOUND journey from the beginning. The mythology is well thought out, and is paired with red-hot love scenes and extremely likable characters. Ashley just went f

Graham is my second favourite shifter after Liam and this surprises me, truly.
Let's see why I am so surprised that I like him using his own words:

-His opinion about himself: "It is traditional with me to just being a shit. I can't not be one."
-His opinion about women and romantic movies: " Women in real life wouldn't settle for the beta. They would keep trying for the alpha."
-His opinion about apparently his love of his life:"This is what I get for being nice to a human. You are what is wrong.
I have been wanting to read Graham's story from the moment we met him and in this I got my wish!

Graham's story was exactly what I had imagined it to be, where this truly Alpha wolf who had a tough exterior/attitude would just melt at the presence of his mate. I could have happily slapped him up the side of the head about his resistance to take Misty as his mate, but understood that as the Alpha of his pack he was expected to mate with another wolf and not a human. Thankfully Misty was not a weak
I am back!!! LOL I have missed GR and all my buddies so much! As far as this installment in the shifter town series, I had a harder time getting into it. Now it could be because I was on holidays and preoccupied...or that maybe it is time to take a breather from the series and come back to it...I did try and pin-point exactly why it was just a "meh" read for me...but seriously...I do think it is the case of "it just me" and not the actual story itself. I still feel that Jennifer Ashley is a geni ...more

Pretty good installment of the Shifters Unbound series. It actually answers some questions I've had and helps to guide the action forward. I've been feeling the series might be a little stuck in the mud.

We met Graham, the wolf clan alpha of the Las Vegas shiftertown, in Eric's (the shiftertown leader) book. Graham was a jerk in that book. His entire pack had been moved against their will to the Las Vegas shiftertown and he had been placed under someone else's rule. Not a happy circumstance and h

Too much stuff with the Fae kind of took away from the main couple's story but I guess we got some answers about the collars.

I liked that Graham was craggy and scarred from having lived a very rough life, that he'd earned and kept his pack leadership by fighting for it and his people. I liked that he wasn't slick and smooth, not educated. And he didn't apologize for it. He was possibly the strongest shifter we've seen in Ashley's Unbound series, an unstoppable force. I loved the way he fought his enemy in this book even knowing he couldn't win, but simply refused to surrender. Not eating, drinking, sleeping, and all t ...more

The one bright light in his life is Misty Granger, a human woman, who calms his wolf and stokes his passions. But when a new threat emerges to place both Misty and his pack in danger, Graham will have to take steps the thwart it or lose Mist

Now his pack wants him to mate but when his first mate died giving birth, Graham vowed never to allow himself to be that vulnerable again.

***Minor Spoilers***

Graham is one of the heroes I feel Ms. Ashley excels at writing. He's not necessarily the good guy. In fact, he was the bad guy back in Iona's book Mate Claimed.

She picks the gray areas in between good guy and bad guy and she exploits them well.

Graham and Misty have been dating for a few months. Graham thinks she could be "The One" so he's been holding himself back, since he knows he has to find a wolf to secure his spot as alpha in t

So yeah, maybe I've been anxiously awaiting this one for a while now. And who the deuce was lucky enough to win a signed ARC? Yeah, that was me. :)

I'm sure you guys already know Jennifer Ashley is one of my favorite authors, both historical and paranormal. Just when I think I'm in fictional love with one character from an earlier book (Sean), then she dangles a new one in front of my face.

I loved Graham!

He was such an ass in earlier books, but I knew there had to be more to him. Especially once
Full of MEHs. Between 2-3 stars. Rounded up because this book is finally pushing the larger plot regarding the Fae.

But basically -- don't see what's so great about Misty. Don't see what's so great about Graham. He never tells her anything but when he's NOT an asshole Misty's all "Look! A brief hint of deep-buried tenderness! LURVE!"

I found everything BUT the main characters interesting. So the three stars is the for the plot progression and larger world but Misty and Graham get a MEH 2 stars f

I pretty much threw caution to the wind and grabbed this one simply because I was in the mood for a new shifter romance. Middle of a series, ignored the blurb...yep, it was an impulse grab and then it just sat. Thankfully, I've been busy pulling things off the shelf that need to be read and this was one of them because I had an absolute blast reading this. My only issue is that I wish I had started from the beginning since I could tell that I was in the middle of a series. Not that it didn't wor ...more

After re-reading the books I have in this series and a few new ones I picked up, I can say honestly that it lacks passion. Sure there’s drama and well planned plots and action scenes. But looking through all these books, the sex is a bit dull. It always consists of burning desires, followed by a longer courtship by a over protective male. Eventually they all get a minor sexually release (fingering) followed by romantic sex or love making. But it’s always this same pattern. These characters are s ...more

Misty and Graham made for one perfect duo. They worked well together and played even better. Graham hot, sexy, rugged,alpha with a chip on his shoulder and a protective streak just a wide as that chip. This one lived up to all the hype behind it. There was so much here and then some. Great addition to the Shifters Unbound collection.

Blog rating: B

Graham, the leader of his pack is still trying to find common ground with Eric Warden and his pack since their forced merger into one large Shiftertown. Eric is the leader but Graham still has to prove dominance over his own wolves to keep control and to keep his nephew, who needs constant support and reassurance, safe. He’s also being forced to pick a mate. But his eye is set on a human, Misty. He hasn’t mate-claimed her, but the more he’s
Compared to the other books -- where instant-love is very strong -- I must say that Graham and Misty's story pretty much has been going on for awhile. Misty first appeared in the 4th book (Eric's story) so for me, the foreplay had basically gone for almost a year. Nothing instant about that *grin*.

Added with Graham being a very interesting character who was developed for more than just black and white anti-hero -- he started in book #3, a thorn in Eric's ass, and pretty much being a bit antagoni

Graham wasn't one of my favorite shifters up until this point. He was unhappy with not being Shiftertown leader and had a chip on his shoulder about it. However, in Wild Wolf we see him more with his individual pack and the bond he has with some of them. Unfortunately, he has to keep his personal relationship apart from the pack since she is a human. Being the Alpha, his mate must be with another wolf. They've been throwing themselves at him, but he's resisted and stuck with his girlfriend Misty ...more

I know I’m not alone when I say as a long time fan of Shifters Unbound; I have waited for Graham McNeil to have his story told.
Ever since Graham’s pack were forced from their home in the wild to join with the Nevada Shiftertown, there has been a tenuous relationship between Graham and Eric Warden, the Shiftertown leader, and even Graham’s own pack.
But Graham’s well known arrogant, hard arse, take no crap attitude has helped him keep control, though at times it may be tenuous, over his barely sta

While I did like this one, I did get tired of Graham and his autocratic ways. What really saved the book for me was the twins, Matt and Kyle. They were such little troublemakers, but you couldn't help to not care. Part of me was surprised by what we found out about them, yet not really. I also found Ben to be very interesting. I hope that we see more with him, he brings about a whole new set of possibilities.

As an Alpha in Shiftertown, Graham feels the expectations from his pack, to mate with a wolf and procreate, for the stability of the pack.
Too bad the feelings he´s got for his human girlfriend gets in the way.
When they both fall under a fey spell, danger threatens all of Shiftertown. Could Misty be the one thing that saves him?
Shifters, action, PNR and smutty fluff in a great combo. Love this series!

I am amazed the series I started and really had issues with has turned into a great series with interesting lovable characters. I am glad I stuck with it.

Again a great story line with lots of interest and hot sex! I really enjoyed the plot and how it all unveiled itself. Graham is a complicated guy but so loving under that hard shell. Misty is tough and takes no BS! Loved it. I want twin wolf cubs too!

Again expensive book and yet again I borrowed from my bestie!
Wait a minute...what is Jace doing back in Las Vegas. Thought he was moving to Austin.
Even so, Graham is a real jerk.
This is possibly my least favorite of the series, in spite of the fae, etc. :-) involvement, which I do always like a lot.
A grudging 3 stars...and that's for the fae and company.
Vfields Don't touch my happy!
Graham & Misty.
Grrrrr...if someone said to you, "That guy went feral." I'm 100% sure you'd know what that means. Jennifer Ashley has made her humans dumb as dirt!!! Graham was not worthy of Misty, he's more than a curmudgeon. He's a dick, a rude dick. He's passion for the twins was his only saving grace. The story was messy at best. The twins were the BEST part of this book. I fact the twins knocked it up to 3-stars because they were two hoots.

*Stops to pet the pretty, pretty cover.* Gah. I love this series. Ashley is one of my favorites when it comes to sexy and intriguing paranormal romances. And Graham and Misty's story totally rocked my Shifter loving world. From the action and danger surrounding the Shifter community to the incredible bite-your-lip romance I was ALL in as these two fought to save the people they love most.

The quick of it is that wolf Shifter Graham is in a spot. He's gotten himself spelled by a Fae and that's a b

I love Jennifer Ashley’s “Shifters Unbound” series so when Wild Wolf released I jumped on it. Just to give you an idea how big of a fan I am, I actually read Wild Wolf before “The King” and I love me my BDB.
If you are a follower of this series you already met Graham McNeil in “Mate Claimed” and probably surmised he is one smexy (in his own kind of way) badass alpha Wolf Shifter. He is a no holds bar leader and never showed a soft side until he met his

Wolf shifter Graham MacNeill has been alone since he lost his mate and son, except for raising his nephew Dougal. An alpha shifter, he is feared by many of the others. He is the leader of his pack, which was forced to move to Shiftertown and wear collars, which spark, causing them pain whenever they get aggressive. A few of the shifters have managed to obtain fake collars, even though they are illegal. La
