Review: Gone with the Wolf (Seattle Wolf Pack #1) by Kristin Miller

CEO and alpha werewolf Drake Wilder has given up the search for his one true love. When he discovers that she’s a secretary in his company, Drake’s primal instincts kick into overdrive.

What he wouldn’t give to have her fingers rake over his body instead of the keyboard…

Free-spirited bartender Emelia Hudson wants nothing more than to make her Seattle-based bar succeed. But when profits decline, she slips into a dress suit and secures a nine-to-five. After learning that her bar has become property of Wilder Financial, Emelia is determined to get some answers.

Two can play the ruthless business game. If only her attraction to the boss wasn’t so intense…

When Drake’s twin brother senses that Drake has found his match—and now inherits their father’s billion dollar estate—he hatches a plan to take Emelia out. Drake vows to protect her at all costs, but he might have to pay with his own life

Take one Alpha male werewolf toss in a free-spirited bartender mix in some attraction and chemistry add a side of disgruntled sibling and you have one great story with Gone with the Wolf.

Drake is hot, sexy and smart but he has this thing about control. Emelia is the perfect blend of spunk, independence and softness. I think it’s great how Emelia stands up to him about what is important to her…no swooning heroine here. Also important is how Drake doesn’t treat her like a mindless female. Despite Drake being an Alpha he didn’t have this pretense of chest thumping “Me Tarzan, you Jane” attitude. Drake was masculine with the “Mine” but still respectful to her decisions. They are two characters that are a perfect balance for each other. BTW…is it wrong of me to think it’s funny Drake didn’t get Emelia’s slang? In all honesty, Drake reaction and not getting Emelia’s sarcasm is exactly what I expect of someone that has a few centuries under the belt, but it’s still funny.

You know what I really liked about this book? Despite the hot sexual content, the Drake and Emelia waited to have sex. No hopping into the sack in the first two chapters.  There is an actual getting to know each other development between the two characters that I find refreshing. ***Little SPOILER alert! Even though the title of the book is Gone with the Wolf, I think author Kristin Miller made an excellent choice in having them watch Sabrina. One of my favorite movies and a great double meaning tie in (Read the book to find out why!). Okay, done with my spoiler***

I will admit I particularly didn’t care for the book cover. I would have given this book a 4-star rating if it wasn’t for the cover. Drake and Emelia are two strong characters and the cover seems a bit…soft. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great cover just not necessarily a great representation of this story. It conveyed a different storyline than what I expected and since to me a book is the whole package, I can only give it 3-stars.

Cover aside, Gone with the Wolf is a fast paced, easy read full of twist and turns that will keep the reader pleasantly surprised. An all-around great book to past the afternoon away with.

I received this book from JeepDiva in exchange for my honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated.
