As the sister of three alpha wolf brothers and a sister, all who can shift, full human Julie has a bit of an inferiority complex. She's spent the past few years away at college hoping to met someone she can love, even though she knows she never feel the all consuming love of having her mate.
Branden, a wolf shifter from the Alpine Woods pack, has waited for what seems like forever for Julie to come back from college. He knew she was his mate before she left, but he never told her because he knew she really wanted to get her education. Now that she was home there was nothing stopping him from taking his mate. Nothing except for the fact that she thinks her sister is his mate and a stalker is after her.
Another wonderful story from the Alpine Woods Shifter series. We seem to be coming to the tail end of wolf shifter stories, but I really enjoy reading them. Sondrae Bennett has been doing a great job of keeping the shifter theme going while bringing in real life situations into the story. I really like the mix. The romance is great too. In The Wolf Within, both Julie and Branden seem to be a perfect match. I'm looking forward for the next installment.
Julie doesn’t know what to think when the man she’s had a crush on her entire life --a man she’s sure is meant to be mated to her sister-- hits on her after she returns home from college. But the harder she tries to distance herself from him, the harder he works to win her over. She knows he couldn’t want to mate with her, a freak who was born full human among shifters. So why won’t he accept her rejection?
Brendan has been waiting for his mate to return for years. Now that she’s finally home, there’s nothing that can keep him from her. Not even her three alpha wolf brothers. But he’s not the only one who’s after Julie. Something else wants to use her for its own evil purposes. Her need for protection allows him to get close, but at what cost? Will his love be enough to keep her safe?
