Pretty good. Some weirdness. Felt like it took me forever to finish this one. But that could have just been a “me” problem.

Didn't expect to love this hard...

1st I hope the author sees this rating.... I'm begging for you to tell Samiah’s story! I want to discover the wolf in her too!!!
Now that I've begged like Jodeci. Nothing but the wolf in me started out slow going for me but once I got to chapter 3 I was glad I didn't give up on it. I've never read a Nikki Clarke novel but I'm a fan now honey! I'm so happy to have stumbled upon the bookstagram feature that lead me here . Godwin and Valeena's love story is unique a

I know you mofo lying Ms. Nikki! I know the characters of Samiah and Cree better get a story! Girlfriend you had me wrapped up in this story like a daytime soap opera! I need Cree and Samiah's characters to be rocking your noodles to have their story told. Hmmph! As I cross my arms over my chest. Otherwise I love Godwin and Valeena's story. So touching. If these were short book to television stories I would be tuned in every week! With my glass of wine and a blanket!

A good interesting read, this story started to drag at about the 50% mark though. Check out my full review via Instagram IGTV.

Black Shifters FTW!

Nothing But Wolf In Me by Nikki Clarke is about Valeena and shifter Godwin. Valeena lives in the secluded mountains after abandoning her old life. An injured wolf (Godwin) ends up on her front stoop and she decides to nurture it back to health. While spending time in his Wolf form, the human in him calls to her. Valeena grows an attachment to Puppy (her nickname for the Wolf). The first time Valeena meets Godwin, he’s irresistible and the passion between them is uncontrollable
On the one hand, I was really digging this premise, both how the protagonists meet and the history of the wolf clan. On another hand, I love both main characters, even when some absolutely bonkers stuff is happening.

But on the other hand, I kept looking to see how much I had left to read, and eventually jumped to about 80-85 percent so I could read the rest. I was curious enough to know how everything turned out, but it was getting to be a slog. It was definitely one of those "I can't believe I

This book was clever with great emotional journeys for the characters. It definitely wasn't your cut and dry "characters meet and fight their feelings for no reason before they fall in love" romance; there was plenty more going on in the story, and I really enjoyed that.

Heck yeah!

I'm here for it. Every bit of this was done to perfection. The romance, the action, the complete storyline... I loved it all. I'm with Leena, I loved Puppy, Sliver and Godwin, and I was sorry when it was over, taking him from me. I'll definitely keep a hopeful eye out for Cree's story, maybe I'll see more of Chief then. Please, please, please keep writing stories like these with AA characters, it's absolutely wanted. A few editing issues here and there, but it wasn't so distracting tha

Really good read

I want my own puppy!

I enjoyed this book. Leena had a rough life and running from it was the only way to free herself. She’s all alone and has a wounded wolf on her steps. After that her life really did change.

I don’t recall reading this authors books before as I’m not into alien paranormal books. I’ll definitely take a look at the other books she’s written because I liked this one

Good Story

This was my first book by this author. I was surprised to find a shifter story with Black people. I was amazed at the story and the characters that were developed. The characters were well developed and each had their own story.
The story was interesting and the imagery is great. I can just about she the places she describes.
This is good book. I recommend to all who likes romance, second chances, shifters and the value of true love.

Here for Black shifter stories - all of them. In the afterwards Clarke wrote that she almost didn't write a shifter story because it had been done so many times, and well, by so many others. I am glad she persisted because 1) essentially none of them are Black stories and 2) she added to the shifter/werewolf lore in a really creative way! I appreciated the biological explanation as well as the origin story that is unique BECAUSE its a Black story.

This book was very good. I like how they had there traditions. I would love to hear about a Miah story. I do wanna know their family history. This could be a series.This book had me laughing the whole time. We love to see what's next. This is a great read. it kept my attention the whole time.

Godwin is bae!!!!!

This book was so good. I could not put it down and read it straight through. The love story between Leena and Puppy is so sweet. I love that she didn't back down and was showing Nabeel and the rest of them who is boss. You should definitely write more black wolf shifter stories.

Great Read

I love this version of a shifter, and I also enjoyed that one of the main characters (the female) is relatable, she just isn’t a save me female, she is strong and tough but soft.....I enjoy the whole story, maybe sometime in the later future I would enjoy to hear about Cree

Interesting Read

First time reading a book by this author. The storyline held my attention to the end. Enjoyed the fast pace love story of the two main characters and how much they needed each other to fill the empty spaces in their lives and hearts. Would like to see a book about the sister, Samiah's story and what happens next for her. Good read.

Great read

For this to be Nikki’s first shifter romance, you can’t tell. Great storyline and I love the drama of running from your past but finding the courage to stand up to it. Hope to see more shifters in the future

I’m surprised this is your first wolf shifter book. It was good. I like the development of your character & the plot of the story. Hopefully, Samiah will get her story out. And what happens with the 3 cubs.

Action adventure and sexy

This well executed romance with a good dose of wolf exceeded my expectations. I forced myself to make this a two day read when I wanted to just gobble it up!

A very enjoyable read

I loved the story of redemption for each of the main characters wrapped up into this crazy wolf shifter romance. The author definitely knows how to keep you interested. You won't regret this read and I won't spoil it for you.
