Rating: 5 Cups
Julie is “normal,” a human born in a shifter family. She longs for the bond she has seen in mates her whole life, but she knows she will never have a connection like a mated pair of wolves. When she returns home from college after a failed relationship, she wonders if she will ever find a place to belong.
Brendan has known Julie was his mate for a long time, and has been waiting patiently for her to return home. Now that she has graduated, he sets out to claim her, but the job is not as easy as he thought it would be. For starters, Julie thinks that he is destined to be mated to someone else!
Brendan has to not only convince Julie that she is his mate, but he has to face her family, as well as a threat to the pack that seems to mark Julie as the target. Her family he can handle, he knows they love her and will be satisfied with the mating. The threat to the pack is an unknown, and Brendan does everything he can to keep Julie safe.
Wow! Ms. Bennett has created an exciting world of shifters that makes me want to read the rest of this series, and impatiently wait for the next release. Julie and Brendan were written with a ton of emotion, and you cannot help but feel what they feel. Julie’s inadequacy and Brendan’s determination were well presented and powerful. The threat to the pack is unexpected and the ending has some surprises. The Wolf Within is a great read!
