ARC received from author

Another great shifter book. Marco who we meet in the previous book, and a new face in Julia. Yes, there's insta-love and she's my mate stuff, but there's also a kidnapping and chasing the bad guy. We do get to see Grace again. The Wolf Hunter really is a nasty guy, and I can't wait till they catch.
Oh boy, this series just keeps on getting more intriguing! This is the fourth book in the Wilding Pack Wolves series and the focus this time is on the urban shifters, living in the largely derelict areas of Seattle and led by their Alpha, Marco Wilding. He’s just the sort of Alpha you’d like to meet - caring, protective, strong, insightful, intelligent and, of course, attractive. He’s also immediately attracted to the feisty female fighting to protect one of his youngster pack mates but she’s on ...more

Alisa Woods creates yet another amazing story with the fourth book in the Wilding Pack Wolves Series, Wild One. Shifter gang leader, Marco Wilding, is trying to stop the Wolf Hunter from attaching his pack.
He comes across she-wolf, Julia Holloway, while she is trying to help rescue one of his pack’s children from the Wolf Hunter’s men. His wolf thinks she might be “the one," conversely; Julia wants nothing to do with him. This contemporary shifter PNR is appropriate for new adult and adult audi

This was an intense read that had me wide-eyed so many times, I forgot to blink. The action, the race against time, the heroics, the near misses, and a wonderful romance woven in altogether made Wild One an awesome read.

This story is about Julia and Marco. Marco is a character that I was briefly introduced to in Wild Heat. Like the other two books I read and reviewed, this book can also be read as a standalone. This is the kind of series that I like – I can pick up any book and feel like I’m get

Fierce and feisty Julia, can she handle bad boy Marco Wilding?

Marco Wilding is young to be the alpha of his pack, but he and his Beta had to take out the previous Alpha because he had abused his position and the wolves in his care. This bunch of displaced, neglected, abused, unemployed wolves and halfings with no place to go; are fighting for their very survival on a daily basis from the police, rival gangs and shifter haters. But now they are fighting to protect the pack members from being kidn

Marco is one Wilding that got away

Julia is starving and hiding away but not when someone is kidnapping a child. Marco is an alpha of a Seattle intercity pack and gang. The gang is doing the things gangs do but behind the scenes it is caring for the homeless and disenfranchised. The werewolves are trying to stop a group that is killing werewolves and putting the snuff films on the internet. Well-written with well-developed characterization makes this a stand alone adult novellas. Mystery, romance

From gang to glory

Marco Wilding is a gang shifter pack alpha. He takes on every wolf that needs a home but had to do things illegally sometimes just to keep them in food.
Julia Holloway just found out she was a shifter and had a hard time controlling it. She tries to save one of the kids in Marcos pack and they come together after he talks her into staying. Not adventure, not romance, got read.

Wild One

Sexy shifter bad boy and gang leader, Marco Wilding, meets brave and tenacious halfling, Julia Holloway when she rushes to save a young shifter being kidnapped. Things get heated between the two very quickly but is Julia willing and able to be what Marco needs or will her past continue to keep her on the run?

3.5 stars....

Not a fan of Marco thinking he use another women to help his lusting after someone else he cant get as of yet. Nor that woman not being with actual mate until Marco finds all this out. Left a sour taste. Having said that, love Julia's smarts and guts once she was able to handle her wolf...go woman power!!!

Another great book in the series. The book flowed smooth & fast, kept me on the edge of my seat in a few places too! Marco & Julia are very likable (love how the bad boy really isn't a bad boy after all!), I was so glad they got their HEA! Gosh, that dang wolf hunter needs to get taken down! ...more

New favorite

Marco is my new favorite wolf. I adore men in shades of grey. The heroine is strong but flawed . Great relationships throughout.

Marco and Julia's story is one of my more favorite storylines in this series. They just seem to connect. I liked that Marcos character was a gang but under the tough exterior he has such good and honest intentions though there are shady business dealings. Julia's story was intriguing because she didn't know much about herself or the shifter world. The bad boy falls for the mystery. I liked it.
This fourth instalment of Wilding Pack Wolves is centered around the shelter where the not so privileged shifters are housed. It's in one of run down and dangerous parts of Seattle. The Wolf Hunter is now targeting these residents from children to the elderlies.

Marco is the Alpha of the shelter pack. He runs a facility for those shifters who are jobless, orphans or homeless. Some of them have businesses but to be able to meet up to his responsibilities, he is involved in some illegal activities

Alisa Woods has done it again. My God, just when you think she can't do any more than what she did with the last book, she pulls another best seller out of the air!!!! "Wild One" is right in there with all the other books in the series. How in the hell can you pick a favorite, when they all ROCK!!!!! This is a love story and a fight for freedom from persecution because you are different. Gut wrenching and heart felt book.

Received this book from the author for an honest review.

Having read the first three books in the series I'm still seriously impressed with the author. Marco was is the black sheep cousin who is the alpha of an Intercity Wolf gang. It's not your typical type of gang. He takes in anyone wolf that has no one to see after them, abandoned pups, widow's, and anyone who just ask. Oh, don't get me wrong they still do some bad in order to do some good.

Marco is the Wolfie is today a protector of the week

Loved it..

I have such a hard time when someone has a name and friends talk about their personality, just enough for the reader to like them, before talking about their torture and death. Either don’t talk about the people as real or don’t talk about what they must have gone through before they died. Christoph’s death didn’t have to be described the way it was. IMO.

And, boy! Marco was some kind of Alpha. He was the most loving and caring Alpha I’ve ever read about. He would lie, cheat, steal, dea

My Score: 5 Stars ☆☆☆☆☆

As far as I'm concerned Ms. Woods could take
this whole Series and just keep writing, book
after book it's a goldmine. She has brought
the characters together to where each one of them
has their own identity and attitude that makes this
book, this series just unbelieveable. Yes, I

I received this Arc from author for review.
I enjoyed this book more than the last one. I liked the characters a bit better, and their 'romance' felt a little less forced to me.

I would have liked more focus on the Wolf Hunter part of these stories over the romance, I find that more interesting than the romances. While I still like the romance portion, the mystery and suspense are what I really enjoy about these books. This book took a while to get to that part of the story, in the next b

The fight against the Wolf Hunter continues. We get to hear Marco Wilding’s story and meet many new characters. Characters from the previous books also make an appearance as everyone tries to work together.

Marco’s pack is being picked up by the Wolf Hunter’s people and he has to work extra hard at keeping them safe. Enter a new character that is as bad ass as they come. Julia is running away from her past and trying to make the best of her life, yet knows nothing about being a shifter.

Marco Wilding is the Alpha of a gang of shifters that have been kicked out by society after being outed as shifters. While on patrol, keeping an eye out for the shifter Hunter, he sees a beautiful female shifter attack a group of men trying to kidnap a child. Julia Holloway didn't know she was a shifter until she had to defend herself. Now she's on the run and has found herself in gang territory.
I've read a number of this author's books, which I thoroughly enjoy. For some reason, I've found Marc
