Volunteering to duel alongside Liam Kolane against the ruthless Creek Alpha could get Ness killed, but the alternative, leaving her hot-headed Alpha to die alone in the dueling ring isn’t an option. Not even when he places ridiculous conditions on her, like not spending time alone with August, her intended mate.

Ness didn’t want a mate, but that was before

This book picks up exactly where the last one ended. Ness becomes Liam's Second in a bid to save his life. Convinced that Cassandra, the Creek Alpha has cheated, she and Liam try to buy some time to prove it and prepare for the coming duel.


The triangle business, unfortunately for me, continued also. I'm probably saying it for the millionth time but I just don't like triangles. It's rare for me to read books with triangles and even rarer for me to finish them bu

Loved it 5+ stars

I’ve absolutely loved this series. It held my heart right to the end. This is a continuous series which needs to be read in order. It’s available on KU.

Ness is an impulsive character. Yet again she has thrown herself in the line of danger to save her family (Pack). She knows an unfair fight is not something Liam can win. Trying to solve the mystery will prove difficult in more than one way. August is her mate but now she has to stay away from him. Liam is hoping for more than a

Pfew! I am reconciled with this trilogy!

A Pack of Vows and Tears, second book of this trilogy, had left me angry as Olivia introduced one of my hated tropes: love triangle!

More than that, Ness who had been so strong in the first book felt like a shadow of herself.

I hated Liam’s manipulation and as I had a crush on August I was really angry at how he was mistreated and played with!


I am happy to tell you that ALL these pet peeves disappeared in the conclusion to this trilogy!


This is hands down my favourite series of the year! What a fitting conclusion to the story. I'm going to miss all the wonderful characters. My ship sailed for once and I'm so glad for that.

The Boulder Wolves series is a hidden gem!

Thank you Olivia Wildenstein for writing this amazing trilogy.


Is it a coincidence the last book comes out in August? 😉

For starters, I'm so sorry I didn't read this sooner as I should have! I honestly couldn't wait to get back to Ness and all the other werewolves, but obviously life [and reading life] got in the way of that one. Until now!

I was happy to come back to Olivia's writing because I know she has a brilliant way of drawing me in and not letting go until I've read the last word. It was no different this time around since I finished it in.. well.. two days? I think? I ignored my other current reads during

I don't know where to begin with this review! I have loved every moment of this series and am so sad that it has finally come to an end. My heart is still dealing with the aftermath of everything that happened and honestly, never has a book left me so anxious leading up to the last 30% of the book. I will do my best to articulate everything that I am feeling!

Ness is back and dealing with a lot. Love, wolf business, and just trying to figure out everything can be rough. She is very relatable and

SOBBING. This book. OMG this book! THIS SERIES!!!!! W.O.W. Okay, since I'm also a writer, I'm going to attempt to string some words together that will hopefully, MAYBE do this INCREDIBLE series, and incredible author, some justice. First, the depth of these characters make them so real, I swear that if I reached out, I could touch them. And believe me, I wanted to hug a great number of them on numerous occasions.

Why does it have to be over?!? 😭
I absolutely love this series and this was definitely the best book of the 3. It broke my heart and made me laugh and had me in a roller coaster of emotions. When I turned the final page I felt like that sort of devasted grief and joy because I know this will probably be the last we heard of this story (but pleaseeeeeee write a series of companion novels!!!!) and while it's wonderful to know the final outcome of this intense story it's also heartbreaking to know t
I felt like a fly caught in a web belonging to two equally big and possessive spiders. But it wasn't my life or my heart which I feared for, but theirs. I couldn't split myself in half, and even though I loved them both, I loved them differently.

My mind and heart are still processing this finale. I have grown to love and care about these characters so much and have become so invested in their stories thus far, that saying goodbye to them (for now, I hope!) was

I read this story so fast it's hard to think of everything that took place, but I really enjoyed the finale to this shifter story!

A Pack of Love and Hate picks up exactly where the sequel left off. Ness is dealing with the after effects of agreeing to be Liam's second in the upcoming duel which includes training closely with Liam and avoiding her mate, August. Soon Ness will have to decide once again where her loyalties and her heart truly lies.

I am truly sad that this is the last book in the trilogy. This book was wonderful. The author crafted a compelling mystery, as well as the interactions between characters. There were points at the beginning where I wanted to shake the MC, but I reminded myself how I was about boys when I was 17, and it was on point . The best thing was how Olivia Wildenstein illustrated Ness' growth. She also has this beautiful way with descriptions that allows you to imagine each setting she puts forth. I'm hop ...more

I’m not ready for this to end 😭 although there were so many twists and turns, so many heartbreaking and emotional scenes, I couldn’t have asked for more. If it has to end, I’m happy with how it did ❤️ I love the world of the Boulder Wolves and I hope we get to see our beloved characters again!

This is the final book in this Trilogy and it did not disappoint. Each book I have ended up reading in a day. I just cannot put them down once I get started. Wildenstein’s writing keeps me hooked. I feel emotionally connected to the characters and completely enraptured in the world that she has created. I love all of the twists and turns in the story. There couldn’t be a more perfect ending. This review seems a little harder to write and I would hate to spoil anything so I’ll leave it at this.

One thing that I really love about Olivia's writing in this series is that she manages to move along a fast-paced plot and still find the time to develop the characters. There were times where events were occurring so quickly yet the reader still got those interactions we wanted with certain characters. Her story flows so smoothly compared to a lot of other books I have read.

Personally this book was my favourite out of the 3. I really felt for Ness, feeling her frustrations, the added responsib

**4.5 stars**

This book was a great wrap of a fantasy trilogy (I am still not sure if it’s YA or NA, or something in between). Without giving too much away, the open questions from the second story get solved with some action, pack politics, a twist here and there and a good dose of romance. I was dying to know what was going to happen (for both the ongoing tensions and the romance) and I was definitely not disappointed. Additionally, I really enjoyed a few character deve

It's been awhile since I last read a series that I truly couldn't put down! Wildenstein wrote such a heart felt novel, it had me thinking about it all day long, replaying the words over and over throughout the day, and speeding through the pages so quickly I had to physically put the book down and step away from it and remind myself slooww downnn don't have it end yet! The boulder wolves captured my heart, my frustration, and my full support!

A Pack of Love and Hate is the third instalment in the Boulder Wolves series which concludes Ness’ storyline as future books will focus on other couples.

This was such a beautiful and, in a sense, bittersweet story. The characters really moved my heart and I loved the importance that it was given to friendship, family, love and loyalty. Ness was a great heroine, strong and caring, though I didn’t agree with some of her decisions, especially around how many times she omitted informa
Incredible, satisfying ending to one of my new favorite paranormal fantasy series.

I think what set this series apart from others that I've read, is there's no insta-love, despite the mate bond. There's a slow-burn romance that's complex (love triangle and all), and it was utterly captivating to behold. And let me just say, August Watt emanates Big Dick Energy. He's the dream book boyfriend: mature, hard worker, gentle, protective (in the best ways). I'm already excited to go back to the beginnin

Some books just resonate with you. I'm sure its the good writing. I'm sure its the great world building. I'm sure its the intricate plot. I'm sure its the flawed characters. I'm sure its a love triangle that I'm not sure I've recovered from. Its all of those things and something I just can't put my finger on.

Whatever it is, I devoured A Pack of Love and Hate in one sitting. In time, I'll re-read the books again just to be sure I got it all.

This was such a good completion to the story arc. From the first page of the first book to the last page of this one, the characters have all grown and developed but they took you through some rough times/choices before that happened. I honestly want to know what everyone is doing 5-10 years in the future i'm so invested in their stories.

ARC provided by the author:

I absolutely loved everything about this. This has been one of my favorite wolf series. The characters and writing are so well developed. I love that I never know what's going to happen next and never find my mind wondering while reading. This one was saucier too, which I'm always happy about. I hope this gets way more hype, because its SO good!

A Pack Of Love and Hate is the third book in the Boulder Wolves serie by Olivia Wildenstein. The book continues right after the second stopped.

Thanks to the publisher for an ARC to read and give my honest opinion.

I just have to say this was a great ending to a great series! This finale was a no holds barred for Ness but exquisitely executed. If you've read the first two then you know the struggle Ness has to go through to get here. Liam did Ness wrong but she is still loyal to a fault and still her own person. Despite a mating bond with August she is not beholden to any wolf. I think this is what makes her an amazing character. This i

I loved it. So much. I yelled from eagerness and anxiety so much during my lunch brake from work because I was at ~that~ part of the book...

I hope to write a proper review closer to its pub date, but I loved it and I'm so happy I got to read it as an arc.

Thank you, Ms. Olivia. You rock!

I LOVED IT! This is the thrilling end to a terrific series. This story picks up right where A Pack of Vows and Tears left off. Ness is tired of being a push me pull you between Liam and August. She just wants to find out how Cassandra cheated and save the pack (and Liams life). I loved watching Ness grow into a fierce young woman. This is a fast paced exciting story that I didn’t want to end.
