An attraction that threatens the future of the pack…

Spirited, stubborn, and deeply loyal wolf shifter, Sasha feels the pressure from her pack to claim another pureblood, yet no one is brazen enough to defy the elders and toy with her . . . no one besides a hotheaded half-breed. 

Tabor, a rebellious outcast, is the hollow's only wizard shifter. Constantly overlooked despite

A dystopian paranormal romance... it is quite the interesting read, except I totally could have done with more background information. What happened? Why are things the way they are? Seriously, there is so much potential with this world, yet we are stuck in the backwoods with shifters who don't care. In fact, they scorn human invention and the metal cities, YET they scavenge in those cities for CLOTHING and potentially other things. HUH, REALLY? Such a contradiction... Why not make your clothing ...more

Very much in turmoil

I really enjoyed the story it was well written and the characters are amazing. We see Sasha struggling through everything and underneath it all she is lonely. Tabor struggles on the outside with the pack because of his heritage. Towards the end we see how similar they are and it is just so romantic how they accept each other.

It starts with a trigger, H is with another woman at the start, and the h watches. Too casual for me, and the story line was all over the place. Perhaps the series improves but I couldn't finish this book. ...more

I never imagined dystopia and paranormal could be combined into one book, but then I read about Wolf Hollow and I was intrigued.

Wolf Hollow is at its core a story about the struggles of a wolf pack to live. There are a number of things that endanger the pack: from wild vicious animals called vulhenas, to wizards, humans and rabid wolves, and even their own dwindling numbers. This world had some new to me rules. Wolves could only get pregnant during the full moon, there were a lot of steps to go

I loved this book. This was an amazing read that had me hooked from the moment that I started reading it. It moves along at a great pace, making for an enjoyable read. The characters are interesting and unique and you want to know more about them and what makes them the way that they are. The story is amazing. Once you start reading you will not be able to put the book down. It grabs you and keeps you interested all the way till the end. This is a must read, no doubt about it.

Oh man, oh man..

Right off the bat the chemistry between Sasha and Tabor was sizzling.

Both struggling to find something and well they must definitely find eachother.

I loved how in different ways,both were facing the same problems.
Tabor trying to get accepted. Sasha trying to get recognized and have her own choices.

This one was really good!

I received this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Wolf Hollow is the first in a new shifter series by Nikki Jefford. In a post-apocalyptic world, Sasha is a pure blood shifter who is next in line to take over the pack. She is literally a princess. The shifter council is intent to have her mate with another pure blood to strengthen there pack. But Sasha has other things in mind. She falls hot and heavy for Tabor, a half breed shifter who is basically shunned by the pack. They not on

Really enjoyed this book. Lots of good ol’ fashioned shifter action! I have two complaints but I’m not sure it would bother anyone else. First and foremost I feel like there’s a paragraph or two missing to differentiate or explain the difference between a shifter and werewolf. There was a couple comments about Aden being a werewolf and therefore immune to going rabid like another one of the pack members.
Secondly- be advised that this was down and dirty shifter culture. Meaning these creatures we

Nikki Jefford is an author that I have heard of but I hadn't read any of her books and when I saw Wolf Hollow was described as both shifter and post apocalyptic I was intrigued how the genres would mix together.

The cover is set in a forest, which we later discover is wolf hollow. There is a wolf in the background who is looking towards the male in the foreground. I did wonder how post apocalyptic the book would be as it seems to be showing a very healthy looking green forest so was lookin

Ehhh I did not love this.

The beginning was pretty promising, though it was weird how it set up Aden as love interest and Actual Love Interest (I LITERALLY just finished and I can't remember his name) as antagonist. Pretty jarring. I didn't mind Sasha but never connected to her, and it was odd how she went from super against Love Interest to jumping his bones. Plus there was a LOT of gratuitous sex, which would have been fine if I liked the characters. The story itself ... there were so many of p

Good and Bad in a Pack OVER 18+READING

Loved this wolf pack story. You have Tabor part of the pack but as the only half breed (wolf/wizard) he was still looked down on by the full wolves. Then there is Sasha daughter of alphas who were lost during an attack where a lot of the pack were lost $ years before. Their growing attachment and all the things trying to keep them from claiming each other. They must face Sasha trying to be forced mated to another full blooded from another pack, pack leaders

This is a unique combination of dystopian and paranormal romance. The first half of this flowed slowly. The second half had a good flow. I felt the world building needed more than was given. There were some things that seemed repetitive to the story, some things that made no sense, then there were things that were not given enough details in my opinion. One of those lacking details, the distinction between were-wolf, pure-bred wolf, and regular wolf shifter was too muddied to really understand t ...more

"The feels, this author can make me feel all the feels when a certain thing happened (trying to not spoil) Sasha and Tabor were hurting I felt it, I just wanted to give both of these babies a hug. The writing was amazing and I always love when the writer can make me feel the feels.

Postapocalyptic shifter romance

The story was great, as was the world. The emotions were realistic and you could feel the confusion and heart break of some characters. The twist at the end was partially foreshadowed but in while still unexpected. Great new series from a new writer to watch.

Always have enjoyed reading anything paranormal especially shifters. Sasha and Tabor’s story is about two individuals who everyone says are not matchable but maybe they are. Who is to say is the right one for your mate?

To be noted:

I was given a copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. This book was free, and my review is not biased towards that fact in any way. These are my opinions only, (as everyone is entitled to them) and should only be taken as an idea for whether or not you would like to read the book yourself. In the end, no matter what review I give, props to the author for writing what they love, and actually publishing a book.

It was two days before the full moon and Sasha was on patrol. Aden was Sasha’s patrol partner. Sasha and Aden provide security. Then Sasha caught the horrible stench of a vulhena. The elders thought the vulhena were formerly cougars that had mutated after feeding on diseased human corpses. Like humans vulhena couldn’t see in the dark nor come close to a wolf’s sense of smell. But they were vicious creatures especially when they banded together. Sasha jumped out at the vulhena. Vulhena had killed ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! At first, I wasn't sure what to expect because Nikki Jefford is a new author for me, but I love paranormal romance and the cover looked great, so I jumped in.

The opener had me thinking that maybe I'd read the blurb wrong because of the situations Sasha and Tabor were in. Of course, I read it two times after that to make sure, lol. Turns out, my impatience had gotten the best of me. Tabor was somewhat of an outcast due to the elder's fears and quite a bit of the pa

I must admit that it took me some time to get into it because it started nice and seemingly foreseeable ...until it wasn't like that anymore. Every time I thought that something happened like I had expected it to happen, there was a twist and it changed and became something completely different.

This book surprised me and it shocked me, it made me furious and I was shocked once more by the things happening in it - and more than anything I hoped that Sasha would overcome her upbringing and its con

4/5 stars

Wolf Hollow by Nikki Jefford has a very interesting and original premise. A dystopian world where wolves live away from what’s left of society, and where they seemingly fight for survival against those humans, wizards, and other predators like the vulhenas.

I have to say that I was hooked from the first page. This is a fresh new take on the werewolves, and it had the promise of something more since it’s set in a dystopian world.

The world building for this particular story was ver

OMG if you love Shifters and you haven’t visited Wolf Hollow, it’s an absolute must. This is book 1 of the Wolf Hollow Shifter series and let me tell you is packs a punch. The author has written a wonderful storyline that introduces the Wolf Hollow pack, their past history, their present, their values and sooooo much more.

The characters so well defined and most of them are just so darn loveable (there is always one or two in the pack you just want to punch in the snout). The storyline entails s

This isn't my usual genre, but I read it based on my love for Nikki Jefford's other series and I'm really glad that I did. The story grabbed me right from the beginning - I like that it isn't just a typical shifter story, but that it adds in some dystopian elements.

The lead female character is fantastic - I loved that she was the Alpha. Too many shifter stories have the male being the stronger of the two characters. Her place in the hierarchy of the pack was also very interesting and I enjoyed t

WOLF HOLLOW was nothing like I thought it would be and almost everything I could have asked for all rolled up into one great shifter novel.

The story started off kinda slow and I wasn't totally into Sasha's fan girl ramblings about her crush on her partner Aiden. I actually didn't love Tabor at first either. I thought he was a player that was too full of himself. As I got to know them both, I found myself rooting for them and their story.

The characters were fantastic. Dynamic, relatable, stubborn

Sasha is trying to keep her pack safe and thriving in a post-apocalyptic world. She is a pureblood wolf shifter and one of the last. Her pack elders want her to mars with another pureblood, but she just wants what the heart wants. She struggles with duty and heart through a lot of this book, but soon comes to find that not all of the elders are what they seem. Enter Tabor. He's the most looked down upon wolf in the pack, why?

For some reason I don’t read paranormal romance very often. The ones I’ve read are very over-the-top (especially in the romance department), and I need my romantic stories to be realistic-ish. But I also love to discover new authors, and the blurb of Wolf Hollow intrigued me. I’m very glad I’ve decided to give this story a chance, I love it.

Lets first start off by saying I LOVE Nikki Jefford. I have had the great honor of meeting her several time now. She Is always joy. I own every book she has. I can never pass up the chance to own her books. They have their own special shelf on my bookshelf. So when I was offered this book as an ARC for an honest review, I was so excited.

This book was an interesting blend of paranormal romance and dystopian. I do not think I have ever seen shifters and werewolves in this sort of setting, so that was refreshing.

Sasha was a strong female lead, which is always a treat in books where the heroine falls for someone. Tabor was also well-developed, with his own strengths and insecurities. However, many of the other characters fell flat for me as they were either really nice, or downright awful. I could not quite connect to them.

Did not like

All the characters in this book were completely unlikable. The male MC is immature and fickle, the female MC is arrogant and stupid. And every single other member of their pack is just awful. I saw no point to any of it. Their lifestyle was completely unappealing, too.

Then throw in way too many “side” conflicts, and it was just a mess of annoying to me.

Mostly, though, it was just really boring.

Maybe there are others who might find these “people” appealing, but to me, they were gros
