Lily Hale moved to the small southern town to get as far away from her bleak, Alaskan backwoods family as she could. All she wants is a little color in her life and a taste of freedom. Getting involved with a wolf shifter seems like the last thing she should do. Except she kissed him and now he won’t go away. She also can’t shake the feeling her life is about to implode.
Is Greer the kind of man who’d stand up to her family of savage werebears and protect her? Of maybe she can become the woman who stands on her own.
Now this is a quick read (novella) but the beginning is very intriguing. Can I just say crossed wires? Yes, there's a lot of confusion initially because Greer is searching for a missing female cougar and he just happens to be overheard discussing it with his partner. When what do you know, a terrified waitress who instantly grabs Greer's attention not only starts acting oddly but shifts in public! What on earth is wrong with her and why does his inner wolf feel so darn protective?
Lily has come so far and escaped her hellish life back in Alaska but now it looks like her past has caught up with her. What if she's wrong though and why does her bear want to roll around in that rather gorgeous wolf's scent? Oh mama, it's all about to kick off but clothes are optional hopefully! Then of course there's the slight issue of them being different species but recently in Grayslake, anything goes!
I really liked the idea of Never Kiss a Wolf and Greer is a sweetie. Lily might have a few personal issues to work through but there's definitely chemistry there. I loved Greer's partner Calder and could almost hear his eyes rolling at times! Gotta love a sidekick that enjoys winding up the hero. Plus, for fans of the series it will be a joy watching the Itana as Mia steps up and challenges her mate’s authority.
My only regret is that the ending came so quickly and it didn't really give me solid answers about what would happen in Lily's old pack. Sexy and enjoyable and a perfect read for a quiet afternoon.
