    This one is a little diff than of shifter stories in that, they live most of the time in their animal, I think, they live in the forest in dens or holes in trees but then once in side they shifter to human must be a big hole in the tree At times it was confusing if they were in animal form or human, since they can talk telepathically to the others in their packs And clothes magically disappear when they shift Then they walk around in the woods in human form naked, cause some only have This one is a little diff than of shifter stories in that, they live most of the time in their animal, I think, they live in the forest in dens or holes in trees but then once in side they shifter to human must be a big hole in the tree At times it was confusing if they were in animal form or human, since they can talk telepathically to the others in their packs And clothes magically disappear when they shift Then they walk around in the woods in human form naked, cause some only have clothes hidden away for town trips But when they drop off Nathan and his family off into the city they have clothes magically , cause before they were living in a grass den as foxes without any clothes.Not sure I really like shifter stories with them mostly in animal form and if human form they still live in animal conditions I like a clearer picture and this really isn t very clear at times And they only use spit or Nothing since their living accommodations are that of their animals, for those that care about that

    I enjoyed Alpha Mate, but there are some gaping holes in the story that spoiled my overall impression of the book In particular, the wolves and foxes lifestyle in the forest was absurd Running around naked and living in dens does not really help earn a living, nor does it explain how the protagonists can blend in so well when they have to mix with humans And then there was the clothing that kept appearing and disappearing that was both annoying and confusing.

    How did the wolves have a big handful of cash I like the book, hate the world it s set in It does soundrealistic andnatural but also depressing When did Jacob heave time to teach him anything I love that things aren t black and white, that the seemingly repulsive Redden had valid reasons for what he did, if misguided.

    a nice read, but I still had difficulties finishing the story, it was beginning nicely and at the middle of the book became a little messy and the end was casual.
