Dani Harper,
Dark Wolf No. 1: First Bite
(Montlake, 2013)

Neva doesn't want to be a werewolf that kills humans, and she thinks the only way out of the world she was forced into is to commit suicide. But when a big wolf thwarts her plans, she's forced to see her new life in a new way. Travis has been a lone wolf for a long time. He keeps helping Neva and can't seem to leave her on her own. The two of them, together, discover a new way to live.

This book started out very exciting, but somewhere along the middle of the book it lost its momentum and pull for me. The reasons for the evil twin and her nefarious plans dragged out too long. And at the end, the rescue mission also seemed oddly timed to me. I'm not sure if I had loved ones in danger, I would stop at a salon for a hairdo, shop, eat and then stay the night in a hotel. It just didn't jive.

This is the first in a series, and even though things could have been tied up in the end, they weren't. I'm assuming some of the characters that were introduced in this book will get a bigger role in the next. I am interested in reading more in the future ... but I hope the next books are a wee bit tidier in their plot.
