From the first book in this series Wolfrik's story has intrigued me the most. He was such a dark character and with all he's been through. I wasn't sure if he would ever be able to integrate himself back in Wolf Hollow.

In Born Wild we find out all of the brutality Wolfrik suffered while he was imprisoned by the humans. Being forced into the fighting pits for entertainment. When he wasn't being forced to fight he was then forced to procreate on the full moon. With female shifters that have be

🌔 Can a damaged soul find redemption? Can two broken shifters learn to love and trust before it's too late? 🌖

When I first started Born Wild I thought Wolfrik would be nothing but trouble . . . And a whole lot of emotional baggage. He did turn out to be wily, but in a fun "Fane" kind of way. We ended up bonding. Kallie was a surprise, too. She had more backbone than I initially realized, and a whole lot of bite!

There's a new character on her way to the hollow - a runaway I can't wait for you to m

After reading Wolf Hollow and then Mating Games I couldn't wait for Born wild especially when I read that the central characters were to be Wolfrik and Kallie. I already loved Kallie from the previous books and was desperate for her to have some happiness after been so cruelly injured by the vulhena when out on patrol. So there was no question of if I wanted to read this book, I had to read this book.

This cover is in a purple hue, which I love. The first thing you notice on the cover is the shir

I loved the story and this is my favorite couple so far. The depths of the story, the trauma and perseverance of Wolfrik and Callie, their healing and attitudes despite life's unfair dealings just spoke to me. While I didn't find it as intense or suspenseful as the previous two, it was just as emotionally moving and I'm thankful some moments were scaled back (particularly the compound scences). Jefford is an exceptional writer and has a unique way of bringing the stories to life while also balan ...more

Born Wild has just become my favourite book in this series!!! Wolfrik has always intrigued me and I was hoping we would get to know him more and he’s turned into my favourite Wolf Hollow male, he’s very macho but he’s got a lot more hidden inside and he’s very funny! Kallie is a wonderfully written character and she really shines in this story.

"The plot was interesting it followed the same danger of the others of having humans around them and that they are closing in on their home. Wolfrik gets his revenge on the person who captured him and I loved that. We also discover the real reason Elsie (Tabor’s sister) comes and visits and I do believe her book is coming. I liked the plot I don’t want to say much more because it is truly better not really knowing."

If you haven’t already read this series I recommend you start. The story sucked me in ever since I read the first one, I was so excited for this one that I finished it in a matter of hours( even with a 6 month old). Kallie is one of my favorite characters and this book just made me love her even more! So many exciting things happen in this story and I cannot wait to see what’s coming in the future!! You can preorder it now for $2.99 before June 27th. Definite 5 stars in my book😄

Keep them coming

Nikki has done it again. I can’t recommend all of her books enough. Seriously her books are an auto buy for me. If you like stories with a happily ever after at the end but it still leaves you wanting more then read this series. Each book is better than the last. I loved Wolfrick & Kallie as well as all the other couples in this book ;)

Couldn't put it down!!!

Oh my goodness, if you are already loving the Wolf Hollow shifters, this third book will make you obsessed! You can tell that the author, Nikki Jefford, put so much time and detail into this universe from the first book to set up the story to here and I'm sure that will continue fourth, fifth, and so on. We met both Wolfrick and Kallie in Wolf Hollow, but both seemed just kind of tragic and heavily damaged. In Born Wild, we find out more about each and come to appreciate t

I have never read a series quite like this one. I love the dystopian vibe mixed with paranormal. All of these books could be read as standalones, but you get a lot more from the stories when you read them as a whole. I have read the previous two books, so I really loved seeing the old characters. I was really looking forward to Wolfrik and Kallie's story. They both have such sad back stories, that I was really rooting for a HEA for them. I was not disappointed! Wolfrik and Kallie's story is full ...more

Wolfrick’s captivity is forefront of this story and it is quite the emotional one at that. My heart ached for him, for Kallie, for the other wolves left behind. The shifters he fathered are going to be interesting to see how that’s handled and how Kallie will feel once she realizes he’s going to have a lot of children. What I’ve loved about all the books is that Nikki Jefford left nothing lacking. It’s either emotionally intense or suspenseful with lots of action all throughout the

Wow! I loved the first 2 Wolf Hollow books and I was not sure how this one was going to work out. The series takes place in a post apocalyptic world where humans are few and far between. Wolf shifters try to avoid people but regularly scavenge old towns for clothes and other supplies. Occasionally, they run into humans. Wolfrik, whom we me in the first book, Wolf Hollow, had the misfortune to be taken captive by a sadistic human named Hawk. He had a group of people in a settlement that he "enter ...more

Two scarred hearts find healing in each other.
Wolfrik, a purebred shifter captured by the humans and forced to do things for their entertainment and other purposes, returned to the Hollow a while back. But, until now, the details of his captivity and his life where he was dubbed Cujo, have been vague. In Born Wild, his scars are exposed to the reader, beginning with his escape. He’s still an outsider to his people, despite his return.
Kallie is no purebred, nor has she dealt with the humans and t

Love this new addition to the Wolf Hollow Shifters series. “Born Wild” by Nikki Jefford is heartbreaking, heartwarming, and full of action and adventure, love, and so much growth. I love reading about the journey both Kallie and Wolfrik take to find themselves and each other. The character development continues to grow and I have really come to enjoy the community of characters that are in Wolf Hollow. I’m really looking forward to the next book.

Wolfrik as we already know, is coming from a dark place. But what happens to him in Wolf Hollow is certainly the recipe for a really good story. Twists abound, and secrets are explored leading us in the end to the makings of at least one or more books to follow. We can hope! This is a hot shifter story and well worth your time if you like hot shifters.

Outstanding and Amazing writing!
When I first learned that Wolfrik was to be the leading male character, I was afraid that I might not warm up to him. I should not have been worried at all because Nikki Jefford does such amazing writing that I love Wolfrik. He and Kassie’s story was heartfelt with ups and downs. I can’t wait for book 4.

This was my favorite so far of Jefford's "Wolf Hollow" series. Wolfrik and Kallie's romance, of two broken souls coming together was so well done. Excellent writing and continued world and character-building. I'm anxious to see how Jefford resolves the conflict between humans and shifters in future sequels. The perfect series for fans of True Blood and Bitten.

4 & 1/2 stars rounded up.
I enjoyed Wolfrik's story, I was sure it was going to be good after book 1 & 2, & this did not disappoint me in the least. I think the author did right by her story (seeing as it could have gone badly - so easily with his history), and I loved his sarcasm & dry humor. Even though he's emotionally & physically scarred, I was glad to see him get love with Kallie. I really like Wolfrik & Kallie, both. Both are great characters. OMG, Palmer, WTF, what a douche!

She did it again! I loved the first two books in this series but "Born Wild" might be even better than those!

Kallie and Wolfrik, our hero and our heroine are damaged and hurt and you just want them to be happy again. Reading about Wolfrik and his time with the humans, his final fight and everything that led to his escape makes you feel with him and hope that finally his life might take a turn for the better. Might. If there wasn't his past coming to visit...or rather haunt him. And Kallie? Well,

My rating is hovering between three and four stars, and I may upgrade later. There were some rather interesting overall developments in Born Wild and it will be interesting to see where the series goes next. So far I haven't seen anything about the next book, but the author did reference Elsie's story in the afterword. Anyway, on to the book. I liked both Wolfrik and Kallie, but I found Kallie had a lot more patience than I would have in her situation. The first chapter, just a taste of Wolfrik' ...more

Just gets sexier, deadlier and lots of action pack!

Oh my word. I cant even process what just happened. This series is so good. Wolf Hollow is no joke. This is like “wolf hollow days of our lives episodes”.Still recovering and grieving a pack member loss from book two we see nightmares haunting Wolfrik. Survival is a must and nobody is safe. Wolf shifters are not immortal they bleed and die like humans and humans are not fragile or weak like most think. We get our main leads Wolfrik and Kallie wh

Loved this book! By far my favorite of the series. I was so excited to see Kallie and Wolfrik find each other. I thought for sure that Wolfrik was going to make me crazy before finally coming to his senses but I loved him instantly and how can you not love Kallie? That girl is fierce and determined and lets nothing stand in her way. I can't wait to see what happens next!

What a rush!

Wolfrik definitely needed to get with Kellie and i am glad that it seems like the Palmer situation was resolved... Raider needs to back off and Elsie needs to take action asap! So many new plots were introduced in this book and I hope the author follows through. This is the first series in reading from her and her writing style is phenomenal! There are so many questions I have and I don't want to ask too many because of spoilers! Please I need the next book!!!!!!!

Tell me its not over!

Being the last in the series [or hopefully not, cause like i NEED to know what happens next], this was no less entertaining then the first two books! That all the characters intermingle with one another keeps you abreast of whats happening throughout the pack itself.

As for thw storyline itself, its worth the entertaining read amd you won't be disappointed at all with the ending [like HELL YEAH kind of ending]!

Reality is overrated ... which is why I write!

Vampire hunters, wolf shifters, witches, elves and Fae with humor, romance, snark and steam. I love bad boys with hearts of gold and heroines who kick ass.
