After finding her boyfriend in her bed with her best friend Bailey decides she needs to get out in the world and make new friends.  I am sure she never expected to get the attention of several sexy unmated werewolves. All it took was one trip into a country bar and that is exactly what she got. Now she just needs to come to terms with what they want from her and how she feels about that. That’s a little difficult to accomplish with her crazed libido and the crazed fool who has kidnapped her.

Gavin and his team consisting of Wyatt, Parker and Jaxon are out hunting the rogue were’s linked to Roderick when the curvy little flirt he met at the bar scent crosses his nose and he knows those scents should never have been mixed. Knowing that the rogues have been hunting and hurting human females they fear that Bailey is their newest victim.

I had a few issues with Bailey. Actually not Bailey but how Bailey was written. She’s plump, curvy, full figured, a few extra pounds, you name it, pick your choice of wording it was pointed out. It was pointed out way too many times. It got old and annoying. The weight was also accompanied by her numerous doubts of why her four men were dotting on her. Many men out in the world prefer a woman with curves over boney gals. Trust me I know this first hand. Other than this one issue I loved Bailey. She handled the men and her new world superbly. She didn’t let the fellas push her to make choices she wasn’t ready to make.

I loved how all four of the were’s treated their gal. Guys like this are the number one reason I read romances. They were completely swoon worthy. Gavin, Wyatt, Parker and Jaxon knew they wanted the curvy little human. They also know she was raised in a society that taught her multiple partners was taboo. They were patient, never pushy in their hopes that she would come around to wanting them all to be with her in a romantic relationship.

The reason I loved Bailey so much was this rant to Wyatt: “Listen here a$$hole. In the last little while, I’ve been kidnapped, drugged, almost raped, attacked by wolves, rescued and then kidnapped again, attacked, and brought to some faraway woods with killer squirrels by a perverted sex cult who thinks they’re werewolves. I think I deserve a little understanding, so would it kill you to fu@king show me your furry dog again?” Yep, I want her as my new bestie!

The last page of the book leads me to believe that there may be a continuation of this book, or most definitely a continuation of the series. I like both ideas. The eroticism of Eve’s Pack series is excellent. I would continue reading this series. The characters are fleshed out. I also like a good smutty ménage on occasion. The overall plot leaves plenty of places for her to explore and keep me entertained. 

Be sure to stop back by on Saturday to the awesome goody's that Eve will be giving away!
