Jade Shaw has spent the last two years avoiding the pack. But when Aidan Collins moves to town, avoiding the dogs doesn’t seem possib ...more
Stoyanoff’s writing style draws you in to her well developed world and gives you a place to call your own while you escape your reality through her work. She writes the way that people really think, feel, and talk. This adds a layer of realism to her supernatural world. This novel also packs an emotional punch. Not only do you have a supernatural story that keeps you guessing and reeling, but this smoothly written novel makes you ...more
For starter’s I LOVE anything and everything wolfie, but then I come across this little gem where in a small town called Dog Mountain werewolves live among humans, Yes, no hiding, they basically run the place. This was soo intriguing as book and movies do annoy me with all the secrecy and who doesn’t want to live in a town with werewolves?!
Jade Shaw the headstrong and maybe too stubborn protagonist lives in this town with her mum and dad but unlike everybod ...more
I received this book in exchange for an honest review by the Author and the “Lovers of Paranormal” Group on Goodreads.com
I have to begin by saying that I absolutely loved this book. It has all the elements I look for in a good book ... action, romance and a good plot. When I first read the synopsis I thought to myself, “yup another werewolf book”, not that that is a bad thing as I love anything and everything Paranormal, but I was pleasa ...more
This book was different than what I had expected but in a good way. A lot of paranormal books seem to follow a certain formula that this book didn't conform to.
I liked a lot of things in this novel, the main one being Jade. While I didn't always agree with her, I liked her spunk. She was a strong character and I like what the author did with her. In fact, I liked a lot of the characters, my favorite being Dominic for some re ...more
Ashley Stoyanoff had done it again; she has made me addicted to her writing! I adored this book and I could gush about it for hours! It’s a quick read because once you start it, trust me, you won’t put it ...more
This was an entertaining read!! Stoyanoff put her own unique twist to the sometimes overdone werewolf mythology. I wasn't quite sure if I actually fell in love with the main character, Jade. She was angry, but with good reason, as it seemed that everything in her life was falling apart. I look forward to seeing how her character evolves in the sequel. The ending was unexpected and left me eager for more. I look forward to f ...more
I was excited about reading deadly crush & to be honest a little nervous too, we all know Ashley Stoyanoff is a fantastic writer & her vampire series The Soul's Mark is excellent but werewolves it seemed like a big leap from one to the other but after a few pages i found all my worries faded & I was totally absorbed in Ashley's unique take on werewolves & the games they play!
Jade is confident, smart & sassy, she's pretty much your ordinary teenage girl..oh expect for one thing she HATES t ...more
This book was provided from the author in exchange for honest literary review.
I love anything paranormal. That being said, this book was off the charts to me. Deadly Crush blends action, romance, and pains of growing up all on one novel.
I think Dog Mountain is about the best name for a shifter town I have ever heard. I laughed out loud at that one right from the start. As the novel develops, you can't help but identify with Jade. She is a great str ...more
Well, I think it's fair to say that this was not at all what I was expecting.
Even though I've been out of the YA genre for a while now, the blurb of this book kind fo got my interest going again. It was different, but didn't exactly tell you all that much either.
First of all, I absolutely love the fact that the wolves and human people could coexist without it being a big fat secret. If there's ...more
WOW! Werewolves with a difference. This story wasn't really what I was expecting. Right from the very beginning it led me down a path I wasn't familiar with. A town where the wolves openly lived with the human townspeople. Jade's dislike of the wolves and her strained relationship with Dominic made me hope for a happily-ever-after for them. That was very short lived when his little secret came out. I didn't quite know ...more
"Holy sugar sticks!" This was a really good book :)
Deadly Crush is an amazing read. Once you start it, you will not want to put it down. This book is full of twists and turns and plenty of surprises. The first chapter was so great that it immediately pulled me in and made me want to read the rest.
I have read and enjoyed other books from Ashley Stoyanoff so I opened this book expecting great things and I w ...more
This is an amazing first book to a new series and I can't wait to read more. Lots of amazing characters, suspense, action, mystery, romance and werewolves. Once you get pulled into this story it is very hard to put down.
Jade Shaw hates the pack and everything about it. After it took her best friend from her she wants nothing to do with the werewolves, but when Aidan Collins moves to town Jade has no idea how far she will be pulled into the pack and their ranks.

Overall, it was good. It kept me entertained, and interested for what was happening next. Being a change of pace from the adult werewolf books I usually read, it was ...more
Be prepared to read this review...
It just felt so childish. I mean it is Young-Adult.
Jade. Oh Jade.
She annoyed me. She just felt so over exaggerated to me, especially with her dislike towards the pack. I thought it was some big issue, but her reasoning was totally ridiculous. It wasn't even that big of a deal. She needed to get over it.
Maybe if I had read this when I was 13, I would have liked this. Not the 19 year old me. Even though it is yo ...more
I must say I was rather pleasantly surprised by "Deadly Crush."
So many books claim to have a strong protagonist female but when it is all said and done, the women cower down to the males seeking their protection. This is truly not the case in this book. Jade, the main character, is strong and refuses to cower to the will of anyone.
Jade lives in a small town called Dog Mountain. Everyone knows the town is run by werewolves. Jade lost her childhood friend and BFF, Dominic to the pack tw ...more
But I was in the mood for something with werewolves and decided to give this one a go. And every once in a blue moon, a hidden gem can be discovered in the self publishing world, and this is what happened here.
The editing was top notch, the characters were likeable, o ...more

All I can say is, zomg!!! I <3 this book!

Yes..yes I do.
I can’t help it! Sexy weres are my weakness! *dramatic swoon*
In this round, our heroine is one Jade Shaw, no relation, hehe.
Jade is strong, sarcastic, stands her ground, even when facing down those always bratty, wannabe alpha she wolves.
Basically, everything a girl could ever want to be in high sc ...more
A great first book to a new series. Deadly Crush left me on the edge of my seat. Romance, suspense and action. A thrilling ride! Another OMG cliffhanger by Ashley! I was very upset that it ended. I need to read more! It was very difficult putting it down.
I fell in love with all the characters. Aidan, Jade, Dominic, Macy, Trevor and Jared. Reading the interactions of them all was fun. I love the name of the town Dog Mountain!
The main characters Ai ...more
