Wolf Bite (Wolves of Willow Bend #1) by Heather Long

Rating: 3 out of 5
*I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review*

Wolf Bite is a paranormal romance about a woman named Alexis and a wolf shifter named Mason. Alexis grew up as one of the only humans in a shifter "wolf pack" after her mother marries and eventually becomes one. As a result, Alexis never really fit in as she never possessed the traits of other wolves such as the ability to shift to a wolf or enhanced strength and senses. As a young wolf Mason is not only her friend but they also develop feelings of great affection for one another. That is, until Mason disappears suddenly without saying goodbye or telling Alexis where he's gone. The story begins when the two reunite by chance. Old feelings are still there despite the time that has passed and the changes in both of their lives. Mason is now a lone wolf and cannot mate with anyone from the pack, and Alexis is now an independent woman on her own in the city. To be together would be dangerous for them both, but fate takes it out of their hands and Mason must do what's necessary to be with the human woman that he loves.

This wasn't a bad book at all. It was written well enough and it is a good enough start to a series. The problem for me? It isn't anything new. It felt like a run-of-the-mill paranormal story featuring wolf shifters. Nothing to get excited about. Like I've said before, this type of story really needs an interesting hook to capture my interest because the market is so saturated with this type of story.

This is one of my shorter reviews because frankly there isn't much to say. Not bad, but not great either. Just meh! Wolf Bite is an inexpensive read at just $0.99 and  a good way to chew up time while traveling or when you want a book that's not overly complex. It won't leave you frustrated, just less than satisfied. This gets a 3 out of 5 rating from me.
