Review:  Accepting the Alpha (Great Lakes Wolves #1) by J.J. Black

Can an Alpha wolf convince his straight mate to give love a chance, before an unexpected enemy tries to rob them of all they hold dear…even their own lives?

Eli Steele is a wolf without a pack. An invitation from his best friend, brings him to Grand Rapids, and a meeting with the local Alpha changes Eli’s life in ways he ever expected.

Kellan Reeves, Alpha of the Grand Rapids Pack, had lost hope of ever finding his mate until Eli came to him, looking for a pack. Realising Eli is his mate, he feels things couldn’t be more perfect…discounting the angry pack Eli left behind. There’s also the insignificant fact that Eli’s not gay. It’s nothing an Alpha wolf can’t handle.

While Eli struggles to understand his feelings for Kellan, an unexpected call for help has everyone on edge. As enemies move in and a horrifying plot is revealed, Kellan and Eli fight back, not only for themselves, but for the fate of all shifters.

The first book in the new Great Lakes Wolves series is an erotic m/m shifter romance that keeps readers on the edge of the seat.

While struggling to accept his feelings for the Alpha of his new pack, Eli Steele learns disturbing news from home that puts his life and others in danger.  Alpha of the Grand Rapids Pack, Kellan Reeves had lost hope of ever finding a mate until Eli petitions to join his pack. One phone call from Eli’s brother threatens his new found mate and the well being of his pack.

This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on pins and needles as they wait to discover if Eli will be able to accept his new mate and then the tension builds even more when the plans Eli’s father has set into motion comes to light.  The author brings the story to life with vivid imagery, details and strong charming characters that grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning.  The action is well written and orchestrated making it believable and easy to picture the events as they happen.

The chemistry between Kellan and Eli explodes from the pages and the frequent sex scenes are hot, steamy and downright sexy.  The romance has a couple of obstacles in the way like jealous exes, evil scheming fathers and some emotional issues.  The author conveys the emotions, passions and personalities of the characters with a vibrant intensity that makes it easy for the reader to relate and understand exactly how they feel.  Eli captures the heart with his strong dominant personality that has a sweet and snarky side as well and what the young wolf learns about his father’s plans has the reader’s heart breaking for him.

I found this werewolf romance to be a riveting and entertaining read with a few surprises and lots of spine tingling tension and sizzling passion.  I can’t wait to read more books in this series and about these captivating shifters.Accepting the Alpha
