My thoughts:
This is one more fantastic installment in the Grey Wolves Series from Quinn Loftis. I like it as much as I did books one and two and I am positive that I will like book four as much too.

Quinn Loftis has brought those fabulous characters, that I have already fallen in love with and completely invested in, back for another round. This story is Jennifer and Decebel's. I have been eager for them to have their own story since the beginning so I was thrilled when they did.

This story is wonderful. The writing is smooth and paced well. The word choices and story line are thoughtful, intriguing and entertaining. Emotional rollercoaster - this one had me laughing out loud - Jennifer and Decebel's reactions and interactions are somehow both heartfelt and hilarious - and on the edge of my seat - wondering if they would figure out their feelings for each other and if when they did figure it out if it would be allowed by the pack.

In this story you will find romance, mystery, deception, betrayal, love, loss, laughter, tears, friendship, heartache, honor, desire, loyalty and what it means to be family. Don't miss out on this series.

Review by: Sabrenia Perkins on July 12, 2012 :
This book along with the others in this series is just amazing. I love how the characters just somehow clash against each other but also blend in to one another just as easily! I am certainly looking forward to the next book and to find out what all else is in store for this group of family and friends!

Review by: Vikki @ V's Book Life on June 09, 2012 :
First line: '"Jen you are not going back to the States so stop trying to pack your damn clothes," Sally growled.She intercepted Jen and snatched the pants she was carrying to an open suitcase, which lay haphazardly across the four poster bed. Jen steadily ignored her and did an about face to the closet to grab some more clothes.'
Ok, as you can see at the start of this book, Jen is attempting to pack her bags and jet back to the US. Where is she you ask? Well, Jen would be in Romania. Living with a wolf pack. Yes you did read that right, our Jen is living with a werewolf pack. Previously in the series, Jen had discovered she had a tiny amount of werewolf blood running through her veins, making her a dormant wolf. She should stay with her two best freinds, Sally and Jacque but a certain fur ball is causing Jen to want to run back home. The fur ball (Jen's words not mine) is named Decebel and he is the pack's Beta, but only out of choice...the damn man is dominant enough to be Alpha of his own pack should he wish. Anyway, Jen and Decebel have had sparks before in the series (though the previous novels have been about Jacque and her mate Fane) but said fur ball has run off with his tail between his legs because his wolf is not showing any signs of wanting to mate with Jen. It's been 62 days 4 hours and 22 minutes since Jen last saw Decebel and she's sick of waiting for him to show up at her door. However, when Jen's tries to leave, who should turn up but Decebel, and that's where things get interesting :)

I adored JUST ONE DROP, Jen is just hilarious. I mean Decebel is about the most dominant, manly wolf man you will ever meet and she calls him 'the fur ball'. Jen's mouth just keeps getting her into trouble, as does her spontaneous attitude. Put that together with two equally humerous sidekicks and a tightly wound alpha wolf and you're ready to have yourself a party. Quinn Loftis has written this brilliantly, we all know I love a good dose of humour in anything I read and JUST ONE DROP has that in spades :)
JUST ONE DROP is set in Romania and for the most part Jen and her two besties as well as Decebel, pack leader Vasile (whom I just adore) and a few other pack wolves are attending The Gathering. This is an old tradition amongst wolf packs revived for the 21st centuary. Due to wolves only having their one true mate, and with population numbers dwindling, the Alphas of 4 packs decide to bring back an old tradition, that is basically speed dating for wolves. All the unmated females and males of the packs gather together in one place in the hope of finding mates among the other packs. However, when you add Jen and her panchant for trouble to a highly strung, territorial alpha wolf and several sex-crazed young male wolves there's going to be bloodshed. Decebel is still trying to fathom his feelings for Jen and her natural talent for pissing him off makes for one hilarious and enthralling novel. Add to this a conspiracy to murder my darling Vasile and his mate to gain control of the pack and you have the recipe for one awesome read!
As well as keeping up with Jen and Decebel, we are also able to see how Jacque and Fane are progressing since their mating. They can speak mind to mind like all mated pairs, and I have to say that some of what Fane says makes me go all mushy and wish that I could find a real live Fane. Anyway, it's good to see what they are getting up to, I just want to see more of Alpha Vasile to be honest...he's even more dominant than Decebel, meaning he could kick serious ass :) He's the strongest Alpha in living memory and his mate Alina is so sweet...I don't hate her at all...nope ;)

All in all, JUST ONE DROP is one of the funniest new books I've read in a while. While it did take me a while to get used to the American slang Jen and her friends used it was comforting to know that none of the Romanian wolves knew what they were saying either :)
I loved every minute and will definitely be keeping my eye on Quinn Loftis and the Grey Wolves Series for the foreseeable future :)

My Rating: 4/5

Review by: Mindy Wall on May 26, 2012 :
“Just One Drop” is the third book in the Grey Wolves Series. The first book is “Prince of Wolves,” and the second is “Blood Rites.” While these books can be read alone, they are best read in order of the series. I have always loved shifter books, especially when there is an alpha. That whole primal thing… yes I should have my head examined but it’s only in my fantasy so I’m okay.
In “Just One Drop,” the werewolves have a Gathering, or the “Mate Fest” as Sally and Jen deemed it. We find out lots of interesting facts about Jen, Sally, Decebel, and all the other werewolves. We also finally resolve the issue of Decebel and his mate.
I was glued to the pages. I literally read all three in about 5 hours. That’s how quickly I got pulled into the stories. Yes, I read really fast, but still. The books are totally appropriate for YA, I would even let my 16 year old daughter read them. The snarky humor cracked me up and the sizzle is totally PG at the most… although it makes the most of the PG.
I have to admit I would love to meet these guys in person. Yes, I’m old (at least that’s what my kids say) and happily married, but yummy ;D. I have to say I think I like Decebel the best. I have a warm spot in my heart for the bad guy with the heart of gold.
My only complaint… and it’s a big one…. was the HUGE cliffhanger ending. Ack! Why?? And who is this new person who suddenly shows up? All I can say is the next book better be out soon.
I think I have a new author to add to my list of favorites and must read anything written by… I give this series as a whole 5 out of 5 clouds. As for the books, Book 1 is 5 out of 5 clouds. Book 2 gets 4.5 out of 5 clouds because it is the only one I really felt couldn’t be read as a stand-alone. And Book 3 gets 5 out of 5 clouds.

This is the best one of the of the series so far. A lot more suspenseful and the mystery was held until almost the end of the book, with a new one given at the end to pull you into the next book.

Great job, can't wait for book 4.

Just as addictive as the first 2 books.I enjoyed this so much I couldn't put it down. That's my problem - once I start reading a great book I will read until it's finished. Keep up the great writing Quinn.

This review was originally posted on goodreads.

This book wasn't as good as book 2 so back to 4 stars. This book focusses mainly on Jen, one of Jacque's friends. I really liked seeing Jen become more important, but also found it a bit disapointed we almost got nothing from Jacque's point of view anymore. So this is both a plus and a min. Again the good points of this series just keep going in this book, good characters who develop even more in this book, multiple perspectives, nice focus on the mates of a werewolf etc.

One of the points that I felt where slightly good than the first two books was the story. The story and plot of this book was slightly less interesting than in the earlier books, less action and more fooling around. Also the story got a bit predictable and it felt like the story was only used as a stage to get two characters where they belonged.

In this book we also get introduced to a lot more characters and the cast of characters was already huge. So somtimes I had problems remembering who was who. There are so many characters and then we also get to see a lot of their persepctives. But the less important characters where those who I just couldn't remember, I have had a few times in this book that I wondered did we know this character already or not?

I like seeing the characters develop some more in this book. While the main character of this book is Jen, Sally and Jacque also stay important. There are some nice character developments in this book and we get to know them better again. The bad guy in this book was a bit boring, his plan wasn't that good and his motivation wasn't developed that good. But the ending gives me the feeling that the next book will have a better bad guy or girl.

Another point that I have to mention is the ending. The last book already ended in a cliffhanger, but I didn't mention it then because I had the next book already and could just continue the series. This book ends again in a cliffhanger. And a really bad cliffhanger if I may say so. It feels like the author just forgot to write a few chapters, the issues of this book aren't resolves in a nice way and there is no ending. It just feels like the book suddenly stops. And the next book isn't out yet. Damn I hate cliffhangers.

Well that being said I still really enjoyed this book. This series really grows on me and I love reading about Jacque and her friends and the werewolves. It is just a very enjoyable story and all the minpoints about the writing style have totally diapeared by this point. This books reads fluently and now I even like the writing style.

To conclude: a very enjoyable read. The characters are great and I like seeing them develop. The only minpoints of this book are: the less interesting story, a bit too many new characters are introduced and it ends in a terrible cliffhanger. With each book that I read in this series I start to like it more and I can't wait to read the next book!
