Now he must find out where she came from, what she is running from and then convince her to stay. That may be easier said than...more
The idea of this book was good but the execution left A LOT to be desired. The characters lacked dimensions, the chemistry between the hero and heroine wasn’t there for me, and the dialogue/writing didn’t feel natural, it needed editing and to feel more fluid.
Too much telling and not enough showing in this book.
Repetitiveness is another nail in the coffin – I just couldn’t continue any more.

I always try to give authors that I haven't heard of a fighting chance. But, Good LORD, seriously... This was really put into the world as a serious attempt at writing/publishing?
The characters were so immature. For someone that was mated and 21 years old, the sister (Willow, maybe) was so immature and I HATED her. The main character wasn't any better.
The writing was very juvenile. I honestly found nothing redeeming about this, unfortunately. I tried, I ...more
Gabby was a fearful skittish character but you could tell she had an underlying strength well she had to have really after being able to survive alone for 5 years without family or friends, on streets in motels and grotty apartments and even just camping. When you found out what was chasing her there was no surprise that she kept running what ...more
So...Where to start? Okay, the IDEA for this book was a good one. BUT the writing for it was just bad. I found this book incredibly frustrating. Because I knew if written correctly it would have been a fantastic read. But the writing was just horrendous. No real plot, character development, action making, nothing...It was confusing, dull and dragged on. And if i ever read the words "rabbit hole" again I'll probably poke my eyes out. Those 2 words were the only constant in this book. I r ...more
Gabby is on the run. She doesn't know why she is being chased. She also doesn't k ow she is.a.wolf shifter.
Trey is an alpha. Females are rare and have to be protected from forced matings or kidnappings. They dont turn into a wolf until they are 21. When he finds a female in his territory he will do a ...more
I loved it so much I was reluctant to put it down. There were a number of typos that I noticed and that occasionally made reading a little tricky due to working out the context but I enjoyed the book so much I didn't mind.
I tried so hard to finish it, but nothing happened until I was 75% through the book and even then it took the next 15% for then to almost stop talking about it and at that point I just gave up. So much of this book was telling me what happened rather than showing me. For example, instead of a conversation with dialogue there would be a paragraph paraphrasing what the conversation was about and the character's thoughts/views on it. That type of writing is the most irritating type of ...more
>I am an independent reviewer. This book is the 1st in the Safe Haven Wolves series and ends in an HEA. Gabby doesn’t know she is a wolf shifter. A trip to the outside world starts a string of events that causes Gabby to be on the run, alone, for years. She doesn’t know why she is being chased. She runs to Trey’s area and feels calmer. Trey is the alpha of his pack and realizes Gabby is his mate. He protects her from afar.
>The attitude of unmated pack mal ...more
I enjoyed the storyline, but the writing was very choppy. It made me think of an old, bad voiceover movie where everyone seems stiff and the words forced. Because of that, I had a very hard time relating to and liking any of the characters. If the writing had been a little more fluent and the characters a little more 3d, it’d have been a great book. OH! I also could not stand the fact that all the women were SOOO emotional and childlike and none of the men ever seemed to know what to do aro ...more
If she wasn’t, then...wow.
The whole book reads like an exercise to get as many words as possible on the page. Repetition of words and sentences 7 times per paragraph, incorrect grammar, slightly rephrased sentences following one another. Why? Has this author been hurt by an editor when they were little and now they cannot work with one?

I'm really not sure how to review this book. On one hand, it's a little different and sweet...but on the other, the females are far too emotional, to the point of being ridiculously dramatic with their tears. They cry over the stupidest things and go way overboard. Measuring cups, really? Gabby acts more like a child than an adult who has been on her own since she was 16, and Stormie...well, her talking was endearing at first, but then it just became nonsensical and a ...more
I was intrigued by the characters and the story line, but the book is full of errors that could be taken care of with a quick read through. I have to say, I was a little disappointed with the last 10-15% of the book too. The author spent a great deal of time building what could be a great story only to brush over all the detail and skip explanations when the story hits its peak. It almost felt like the author gave up when it came to the ending. ...more
Really, I think the two-star rating says it all: this book was okay. The premise was interesting, and it could have been executed better. The story had several annoying inconsistencies, and I felt like Gabby changed too quickly for her character and issues. Overall, the book wasn't horrible, but it isn't something I'm going to reread or recommend to someone else.
I started Gabby on Sunday early evening - @ 2:45 A.M. Monday morning - I HAD to quit with 20 pages left (SOME people have to work on Monday mornings) that was the 3rd time I had tried to quit. I really wanted to know what happened. It's a great story. A writing style that keeps you enthralled and moving along. Thank you, Sherry Foster for your time, talent AND THE STORY!
Is been a while since I found a book that interests me. I love paranormal books about vampires ,werewolves,dragons,demons,etc. When I saw this one I wanted to give it a try but there's a big issue that I hate when I'm reading and that is too much inner dialogue. And in this book that is all I see,I fast forward until the end just to see how it ends. It was about 10% of conversation and the rest inner dialogue. Sorry but I feel so disappointed.
Loved this book! So much intrigue! This book brings so many interesting characters to light. Gabby has no idea she is a wolf. She will not change until she is 21. Trey is the alpha of the pack where she finds haven from the men that are chasing her. Who are they? What do they want with her? Will she ever finds her twin? Will they ever be safe. To find out the answers and watch Gabby and Trey find each other, stay tuned! Enjoy!
I really wanted to like this book the story was there the beginning was hopeful then it crashed and burned an incomplete thought. The main heroine was babyish and never really became compleat therefor the story just stuttered out. I think this could have easily been a multi book story instead it abruptly ended.
Gabriella was a girl on the run and had been for years, there was no safe place that she could find , and no place that she could call her own. It would not be so bad, but she didn't know why those men were chasing her. This was a great read. 👏👏BRAVO!!
I hate writing negative reviews but I hate not leaving reviews at all. It seemed to be written by a young teenager with a decent idea. It did have potential it just didn't flow. At least not for me. Hopefully others enjoyed it, so the author doesn't quit trying.
This book has wonderful characters with strong personalities. The storyline is intriguing and makes it hard to put down.
My only bad point is some of the wording. Words repeated too often and characters can sound stilted at times. But over all a great read.
