Plot: She's met her mate . . . and he's met his match.
Megan Ross has been waiting her whole life for her mate to come and sweep her off her feet. But the wolf she meets on the beach is NOT the sweet gentle boy she's been dreaming of. Instead, he's a warrior, one whose suffering has led him to lock his heart away in a prison as cold and hard as a diamond, who fights to resist the bond and their deep sexual attraction.
Far from home, with a soulmate who is still a stranger, Megan learns that the path to true love isn't quite as straight and easy as she thought . . . (2017, Amazon.com)

Review:  It's been a long time since I've read a werewolf romance book, but this caught my attention because it didn't seem like the ones I've read in the past.  Which is good - I wanted something different.  Being the daughter of an Alpha pack leader, Megan is given a party in hopes that she will find her "mate."  But, this werewolf story is not the happily ever after Megan was hoping for when she finds her mate in a Warrior Alpha named James.  When James realizes he and Megan are "True Mates," he practically wants to run away.  He loathes the idea of not being in control of his emotions (and life), and having Megan follow him around like a lost were-pup (so to speak), makes it even worse.  Megan doesn't understand why James is so distant, but she is determined to give their relationship a chance - even if James doesn't want to. 

The story is mainly centered on the relationship dynamics between Megan and James, which is fine if you purely want a romance story.  However, there is a part of the story line that was a bit confusing to me.  The enemy of the werewolves are these creepy creatures called Wraiths.  They apparently feed on people and werewolves, but only come out in the city and at night.  This is fine, but there was no background or solutions of any kind at the end regarding this threat.  They fought them and that was it.  There was no plot regarding these beings.  So, recommended if you like a werewolf romance that is not an obsessive love story, but an actual growth towards developing feelings.  So, more authentic then your average romance in this genre.
