Bound to You by Alyssa Brandon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received this free eARC novel from Edelweiss in exchange for my honest review.
Megan is desperate to find her mate. As an 18 year old werewolf, an alpha born from the Alpha of alphas, she is having a hard time finding the person she is supposed to spend the rest of her life with, but that makes sense since she is not a normal werewolf. When her father throws a party and invites all of the single eligble guy werewolves, Megan cannot wait to find the one for her.
Sadly for her, though, she does find him, though their first meeting is not how Megan has foreseen it. In fact, James is outright mad that he is her mate. That doesn't stop him from going through the initiation, but he isn't warm and caring toward Megan. And he treats Megan as if she's not even there, barely acknowledging her.
Megan is sure that James is going to open up to her soon, that she just needs to give him time. She decides to do projects around the castle that she now lives in to keep herself busy, but also to give James her space.
The more she is around her new pack, the more she realizes that warrior werewolves are a bit different than a normal werewolf pack and Megan is going to figure out a way to make it better. But the more James keeps pushing her away from their bond, the more Megan wonders if she can live a life where she is not welcomed.
When wraiths become an issue and risk her packs life, Megan has to decide if she wants to leave this life behind or if she wants to stay and fight for the new people in her life.
I am very glad that I got this eARC! I really enjoyed it! There were a few moments where Megan was being a baby and saying the same thing over and over and over again, but otherwise I flew through this book and loved reading about the different characters.
Megan has always been put aside in life for her other sisters, so this mate bond means so much more for her. It's a bummer she gets stuck with James who never wanted to have a mate, but in the end things work out.
James is a haunted man, and it's no wonder he is keeping his guard up. But he should realize that Megan is not going to hurt him intentionally because she is such a sweet thing.
And can I just say that the tension between James and Megan was steamy?! Jeez, louise, I was blushing haha!
Overall, I really liked this novel. And I'm hoping that there might be another book coming?!? Because I use more James and Megan in my life! I'll have to keep an eye out for more from this author and I definitely recommend this to readers :)
