Jaque Pierce was just an ordinary 17 year old girl getting ready to start her senior year in high school in Coldspring, Texas. When a mysterious foreign exchange student from Romania moves in across the street, Jacque and her two best friends, Sally and Jen, don't realize the last two weeks of their summer was going to get a lot more interesting. From the moment Jacque sets eyes on Fane she feels an instant connection, a pull like a moth to a flame. Little does she know that the flame she is drawn to is actually a Canis lupis, werewolf, and she just happens to be his mate; the other half of his soul. The problem is Fane is not the only wolf in Coldspring, Texas. Just as Fane and Jacque are getting to know each other, another wolf steps out to try and claim Jacque as his mate. Fane will now have to fight for the right to complete the mating bond, something that is his right by birth but is being denied him by a crazed Alpha. Will the love Fane has for Jacque be enough to give him the strength to defeat his enemy, will Jacque accept that she is Fane's mate and complete the bond between them?
I loved the way this book was filled with action and drama, but still kept it light and airy. The interaction between the characters alone lead to some great mood lightening.
An undeniable connection between Fane and Jaque from the beginning had me rooting for them from the get-go. There was never any doubt in my mind where Jacque's heart should lie.
I appreciated the supporting characters and how they have open endings that lead the future books with them having HEA's. You don't find it very often in YA books where a series follows different couples instead of focusing on the initial couple and just their continuing journey. I like how this series takes us from one couple to the next, but keeps everyone linked so you get to see the story as a whole unfold.
Wonderful, Wonderful start to a series! Can't wait to read more!
