Title: Wolver's Reward
Fate has played River for a fool. Again. He thought he'd earned the respect of a decent and admirable wolver pack. He was grateful for it. He was content...until they took it all away, and left him alone and angry. Again.
Yet Fate rewards him with another pack, one that needs his survival skills, and one where he meets the girl of his dreams, but River is no longer a fool. The beautiful Rebecca is an Alpha's daughter. She can never be his and she knows it, too. But knowing the outcome, changes the game, and both River and Reb decide to play this one on their own, but different, terms.
What Fate knows, and River must learn, is that happiness comes when you least expect it, and finding a love worth fighting for is what brings a Wolver's Reward.

I was jumping up and down excited to see a new book in The Wolvers series by Jacqueline Rhoades was coming out. It had been a while since the last book came out and so I did a quick scan of the past blurbs and my reviews to bring me up to speed. The blurb for Wolver’s Reward in a nutshell; River was forced out of his pack despite thinking he finally found a place to belong. For the survival of her pack Rebel needs to find a Mate. She’s the girl of his dreams and he’s what she needs to help her pack survive. They know they can’t have each other for keeps so they settle for right now. Fate has other plans for them. Fate and Eugene Begley cannot be denied.
I have a confession to make. I don’t remember River. I peeked back at the book that first introduced him, I see in my review I even made a comment about him and the other orphans but for the life of me, River is drawing a complete blank in my mind. Maybe it’s for the best because then I wouldn’t have the previous book jading my opinion of him which is Oh My YOWZA! The ‘Oh My’ was for the situation he found himself in. Pushed out of his home, on the road angry and then BOOM he’s robbed of all his stuff by a pretty face. Of course, he is quite YOWZA: Strong, helping, but still angry, and in there is a heart of gold that he carefully protects. He never quite got over his reject all through his life. And that pretty face? Rebecca, aka, Rebel. She’s an Alpha’s daughter, destined to be a Mate. She certainly fits her name; however, she has an endearing innocence to her. You mesh the two together and you have comedy and drama mixed with heat. She wants him but he doesn’t think he’s good enough for her. Don’t expect a typical good girl/bad boy story here. Things to expect – a broken down car, a baseball bat and a Chase. The journey they take to get there HEA is a crazy one and I loved every second of it.
As usual, Ms. Rhoades has brought to the table a stellar supporting cast that you just can’t help but adore. From Scar, Ben and the cubs to Roland, Margaret, Darla and the rest of the Sweet Valley pack, these rag tail characters had me laughing with their antics and just loving them all. My favorite was Scar. His story was an interesting one and had me smiling. Was he bad? Was he good? I’m not going to spill the beans but I will say this, and he had my guessing until the very end. For regular readers of this series you’ll be happy to Eugene Begley has his finger in this book. You just know when his name is mentioned, things are going to get a bit crazy.
I discovered Ms. Rhoades a few years back when she started writing her Wolvers series, which quickly turned into one of my favorites. Each book has its own charm and lovable characters and while they can be read as stand-alones, I veto reading them separately. To appreciate them and Ms. Rhoades to the fullest, you have to read them all. The world building, characters and humanness injected into this series is something anyone who enjoys shifter romances must experience. Every book is a 5-star delight and comes highly recommended by me.
