**** 3.5 Stars ****

Wolf Bite had a rocky start for me. I didn't get sucked into the story in the beginning. But eventually I found myself attached to Mason and Alexis.

Years ago, Mason left the pack because of politics. His lone wolf status meant that he was supposed to be alone. But when he bumped into Alexis after years of solitude, he broke the rules by sleeping with her.

The chemistry was pretty hot and steamy. But their forbidden love will have to stop unless they want to face the consequen

I hate long separations and this couple has been separated for 10 yrs. The H never even tried to keep in touch and it’s only coz of a chance encounter that they met again. Hero also left the heroine after they met again and he had no plans of being with her until he found out she was pregnant. He only challenged the Alpha because heroine is pregnant and it would be a difficult pregnancy. What a zero!
I've met these characters before. I've seen this plot before. I've visited this world before.

There is nothing new or original here.

For the most part, Shifter novels follow a pretty generic formula: Me alpha, you mate. We mate - many, many times. You, hard-ass bitch. Me, tortured hero. Drama! Angst! Heart-ache! Big finale. HEA.

Guess what? This one is no different.

But sometimes, you come across a shifter story that, whilst still following this formula, really catches your attention. Suzanne Wright

3.5 interested but not in love stars for Wolf Bite. I think what made me not fall completely in love with this story really is rooted in the fact that it felt so rushed. I really like a story that unfolds and makes me trapped in the world so I can feel as though many months and so on are passing.

I did like the paranormal element because wolves are awesome. I mean, I'm always hoping wolf shifters exist so I can grab me one of them because that would make life great. I love dominant, sexy, and se
4 wolfish stars

Im really digging this series.

I really enjoyed the chemistry between Mason and Alexis, although Alexis could make him suffer a little bit more after leaving her not once....not twice.....THREE EFFING TIMES!!! MAKE HIM GROVEL GIRL!!! but whatever.... :/

Another interesting thing was the pack dynamic as well and other characters that were mentioned and I guess they will be having their own book.

Onto the next!

Short, less than 200 pages but well done. Loved the characters, and the world building. I'll read more of them.

***Netgalley ARC for honest review***
Being one of the few humans living among wolves made life difficult for Alexis. The one bright spot in living among the pack was Mason. He didn't make fun of the fact that she was different and had declared himself her official protector. All that changed when Mason up and disappeared without explanation and no one would tell her why. After realizing he was never coming back, Alexis bides her time until the day comes when she can leave pack life behind and se

This was a quick and easy read. This is Alexis and Mason's story. Alexis is Ryan's adopted daughter from the prequel. Mason was the son of the family that first accepted the human family. They are both grown up now and destined mates. Mason left her when they were young and went for lone wolf status. Years later they meet back up as adults and kind of picked back up where they left off. Mason left her again but came back and Alexis took him back. The asshole left a third time and she took him ba ...more

I really wanted to like this with Tiffany and Mason but...little to nothing happened besides the wait to find out just what Toman was up to. I thought his treachery would be way deeper than it was. I thought he was just looking out for protecting his position by sending the threats away. He may have provoked them into fighting before they were ready but all fair in a fight to the death. Too much time passed as well from when Tiffany was just a child with little going on with her parents. The two ...more

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading this book. I've read other books by this author that didn't need necessarily "wow" me but were an enjoyable means of passing the time.

I was pleasantly surprised by this one. It's sufficiently steamy and did a good job of making me care about the characters.

I'll be continuing with this series. Maybe it will bring me out of my reading drought.

I liked this play on the werewolf theme. Mason is a guy that is willing to take a back seat until Alexis is in the picture and in danger. I enjoyed the plot and the manipulation. The action was well written as well. There were some parts that could have used a little more development but all in all it was a good base and overall story.
Jul 05, 2015 rated it really liked it
Finally a werewolf romance I can recommend! The wolves behaved like wolves, the characters were well written and interesting, nobody did anything stupid or completely out of character and the plot actually made sense. I'm getting the rest of the series.
Sep 11, 2015 rated it really liked it
A fast paranormal read. This was a good story. The main characters had a quick romance, based on a love they each had when they were young, and how they still felt for one another now.

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher for an honest review.

This is the first book I've read by Heather Long and I was very pleasently surprised. The characters were hot and sexy and made for a very good read. I look forward to reading more from this author and would recommend this book to shifter fans.

Not a lot of bite...

Mason Clayborne is a Lone Wolf from the Willow Bend Wolves who fled the pack after his father lost a dominance challenge to the Alpha, Toman Carlyle, and his mother's death. Alexis Houston, one of the few humans with the pack, was adopted as a child by Ryan Houston, the pack attorney, who married her mother. Alexis has always been drawn to Mason and feels lost when he suddenly leaves. Eventually, Alexis leaves the pack as well. It is ten long years before Mason and Alexis cro

When Mason Claybourne scented Alexis Huston he knew she was in trouble. He had to help her, protect her.

It had been a long time 10 years since he was forced to go lone wolf. He knew he couldn't stay with her, but he could make sure she was safe and back with the wolves that should be protecting her. The thing is there aren't any. She's here alone.

There is a history between Alexis and Mason, one that requires a lot of fixing. Some of that was in the explosive way these two come together, which ca

This was a quick read with a lot going on.
From the beginning there was a feeling of being dropped into the story - almost like this is a continuation of another series, but is listed as Book #1. Some of the backstory comes out and eventually everything makes sense, but there were a few head scratching moments.

I liked Alexis and Mason and enjoyed them as a couple. My only complaint regarding them is that the ending felt very rushed. Even given their history, he should have had to work a little

4 stars because it is too short - got an epilogue, when I wanted a 2-3 more chapters, then the epilogue. This is one of my favourite series, love all the H and hs. The H is strong, mad about h. They meet almost accidentally, lots of loving scenes, steamy but no doubt they are in love, have been for years. He kids himself that he is moving on -she's human, he's lone wolf, so can't be together. He plans but puts off leaving, deep down, he's preparing to fight for her.

Not my 1st Heather Long book, but moving it's way up to my new fav series by her!! This is a fast read about Alexis and Morgan following the prequel about Alexis' mother and new father. I had not yet read that one, but the holes all filled in nicely with the story. Alexis' overprotective father, an attorney in the wolf pack - and Morgan who had gone 'lone wolf' after the deaths of his parents. This is very recommended & I won't give away any thing to spoil it - so just read it!!! I'm eagerly ...more

Wolf Bite is a paranormal romance that focuses on Alexis and Mason. These two grew up together, but after several years a part, they are reunited in a chance encounter. Both and then set on a path of rediscovery of each other, but also of themselves. This is the first book in a series which currently has several other books that follow other couples.

Wolf Bite is a second chance romance. I read this book in one sitting and then re-read it. Despite this being a fairly short book (150 pages) we are treated to a full story, in a well thought out world and some sizzling hot bed breaking sex. The characters are truly likeable and believable. Neither is perfect but they are certainly perfect for each other.

Can we say H-O-T? Heather Long has brought a racy and creative spin on werewolves and the supernatural. Who knew that humans and werewolves could co-exist in a pack and have hot monkey, or wolf sex! The main characters have a strong connection that began with a new human being accepted into the Willow Bend pack. Mason is a lone wolf, forced from his pack after his parents died, and he is a perfect example of a sexy, take charge male specimen. He scents Alexis after hearing a cry for help. Alexis ...more

I started reading this series after coming upon one of the later books in a book tour review.

I have to say, im not disappointed!

I enjoyed the book thoroughly. Its your usual werewolf mate storyline, but the difference in it being a GOOD storyline and not, is the writing style, the characters and how you connect to them.

In this instant - the characters were easy to connect to. Mason, the werewolf is the tortured lone wolf, exiled from his pack after his dad died taking on the Alpha and his mother
