Logan Hunter would do anything to protect the Silverbacks—but his devotion comes with a price. For years he has been fighting his alpha instincts and the need for his own pack. But all that changes when Logan is sent on a mission to find out whether the new White Paw alpha really has what it takes to carry on her father’s legacy. Powerful, spirited, and downright gorgeous Honor exceeds his expectations…and leaves him howling for more. Could it be that he’s finally found his alpha mate? Or will old enemies, dueling loyalties, and an appetite for destruction stop him dead in his tracks?
Mmmm, what to say without spoilers. Honor is the Beta (second in command) of the White Paw pack. When her father dies, she wants to assume the alpha role. Not because she really wants to be because none of the other members of the pack have the mentality to do what's best for the pack nor the smarts to run all sides of the pack.
In order to be the Alpha, Honor must be physically capable of defending against challenges from other pack members and yes, the ones challenging are all male.
Logan is the Beta of the Silverback Clan, the over-clan of the White Paw pack. He's sent by his Alpha to ensure Honor has what it takes to run her pack and remain Alpha.
The sparks fly from the first between Honor and Logan. She's resentful of his presence to determine her Alpha abilities and he's in lust.
What I liked: I liked Honor's character and the way she was written. She has a responsibility to the pack even though being Alpha is not what she really wants. She's realistic in her outlook about her pack mates.
What I didn't like: The whole book was centered around Honor's ability to lead her pack and everyone doubting that ability. The storyline didn't connect with me. Why? I'm trying to put my finger on that even as I write (type) this. Logan was undermining his mate almost at every opportunity. I guess Logan being pulled in two directions was supposed to create tension. It just pissed me off. The other thing was the ending. I saw it coming about a third of the way into the story.
This was Logan's story and I was disappointed. Parts of Hungry Like a Wolf were okay but it's not one I will go back and re-read. I like Ms Warren's books on the whole and will continue with the series. This one I could have skipped.
