My Thoughts :)
Okay I absolutely loved this book. I couldn’t put it down, much to my son’s dissatisfaction as I didn’t jump when he said he was hungry. lol
I bought this book because I am signed up for the 2nd book’s online blog tour, a first for me and my blog, YAY!! And since I’m always looking for ways to connect with my high school students, I wanted to start with book 1 in this series.
This is a YA Werewolf Romance. I will definitely be recommending to my students who are very into shifter books and one who will be an author one day.
This story is told from the perspective of 3 different characters Allison, Cade, and Kendall. Most of us can relate that high school is tough because the kids can be brutal to each other, but I can’t imagine how hard it would be to add werewolf problems on top of that. I love Allison’s strength and that she is a fighter. This journey with Allison to find a place where she fit in was awesome because I see students struggling with all these same things every day. I think the authors did a fantastic job helping the reader see things from the perspective of the which character that chapter was written in. That being said you do have to pay attention at the beginning of each chapter to know who is speaking. Someone who does not pay attention or get sucked into the fantastic world of the Red Ridge Pack would easily become lost. I highly recommend this book to all those shifter lovers who don’t mind reading YA romance.

I love to devour a YA paranormal that is a fast-paced page-turner and Pack of Lies is exactly that! This book was full of secrets, lies, and deceit, not to mention plenty of romance.
Poor Allison is in the midst of her transition and is forced to leave her home and move to New Mexico to live on an estate with other werewolves. It didn't seem all that bad since her life in her hometown was pretty much like living in Sucksville, USA, but what she didn't realize was that her presence there wasn't welcomed by all, especially when she falls for the wrong wolf, the next in line to be alpha. I can't wait to see what happens in book two!

This book was ok. I really enjoy werewolf books, especially with a romantic relationship in them, but it bothered me how quickly Allison and Cade fell for each other and how they kept the relationship a secret and he kept his girlfriend on the side so as not to piss off his dad. Considering how cool his dad turned out to be at the end, it was annoying how their secret relationship was banned. I also didn't understand how when Allison was kidnapped Kendall seemed to really take over and the rogue suddenly seemed very weak and submissive. Overall, an okay book, and I might read the next one.
