This book is a fast easy and ok read that could use some editing and polish. Removal of commas would certainly help the flow. The plot is familiar and the sort to appeal to teens and YA readers. Overall it's a decent start that shows potential, and one I'd keep an eye on for future releases. I received an evaluation copy in exchange for my review.

I was asked to review this book by the author...

From the first page, I knew it was going to be a good read. It seemed to have a unique plot line, and it did. Tina writes with a fresh perspective, it's different to the way many other people write. It refreshing. The descriptions are informative yet they blend into the story and don't give too much away. The characters have relatable personalities, especially the main character named Lila. Starting at a new school, like she does, can be challenging and this book shows the struggle, with an extra little twist.

If there was anything that could have been imporoved, I would say that it was a bit fast-pased. But then again some people like that. I would recommend this to people who love wolfs (obviously) and just anyone who is looking for a good read.

I give this a 7.5 out of 10 rating .

Written for young adults 'Forbidden' is the first in the 'Wolf Sirens' series. The legend of the Angel and the Wolf intrigues me but the preface's description of the legend effect on Shade is too detailed. This interesting information would be better drip fed into the story through the characters, making it easier to absorb.

The first half of this book didn't compel me but I persevered and found the second half more to my taste. I appreciate this book is aimed at young adults and first love and this definitely came across when Lila is torn between two potential lovers. The first person point of view limits the potential of this story because we only see things through Lila's eyes and I would like to know what the men in her life were thinking and the mysterious Cresida.

There were some interesting twists in this story which made it suspenseful and I liked Lila. I would love to see how she progresses into her destiny.

If supernatural wolves are your thing and you enjoy reading about popular paranormal themes you should read this. I am hooked enough to try book two in the series 'Wolf Sirens: Fever.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

3.5 out of 5 stars

I love to read anything paranormal, especially vampires and werewolves, so when the author asked if I would like to review her series of books and I saw that it was about werewolves, I was IN!

Right from the start, the cover lured me in, begging me to open this book and start reading. I think it is an absolutely beautiful cover – so dark and intriguing. Then, if that did not seal the deal, the preface gives the reader a detailed account of one of the many myths surrounding the town of Shade and werewolves. It is such a beautiful myth – ancient Greek gods, forbidden love and wolves. So after all that, I settled in and began reading what was to be a promising good book – I was not disappointed.

This was a beautiful story of the hunter and the hunted and the love that was forbidden between the two. It is the story of one girl’s discovery of what her destiny truly is meant to be and the journey there is full of heartbreak, anger, love and anguish. Ms. Smith has such an elegant way of writing, the words flowed so smoothly. I became emotionally invested in these characters, in fact the ending brought tears to my eyes – I really did not expect it. The ending also left the door open for the next book in this engrossing series, and I can’t wait to begin the second leg of this emotional and action filled series.

I am rating this story 3.5 out of 5 stars only because there were a few issues with punctuation and the repeat of information at times, but these were minor and did not take away from the story whatsoever. I believe this is the author’s first novel, so with that being said, for a first, she did a really good job!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Lila Crain is forced to move to the small town of Shade after some trouble in the city. She is anxious to start her year at Shade High.

To her surprise the "in" crowd are eager to invite her into the clique. She is suspicious when a girl named Cresida warns her against it.. But wanting to know more about them she accepts their invitation to join their group.

It is then that Reid catches her attention. Tall, athletic and charming, she is flattered by his attention. After a few weeks of finally feeling that all will be OK in Shade, she develops feelings for the top dog "Sams" boyfriend, Sky.

Lila is intrigued and sucked into the lifestyle of her new friends.
She begins to unravel why they live the lives they do and is transformed and bewitched by it.

An interesting read with a spin on the paranormal. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and look forward to reading Fever and Night Fall.

I loved this book and once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. If you love shifters and werewolves this series is for you. The author gives you background on the mythology of werewolves and makes in interesting in the story line. Lila is a seventeen year old teenager who is forced to move to a small town called Shade with her mother after her parents divorce and her acting out getting into trouble. As soon as she hits start at the local high school she knows something isn't right. People stare and don't speak. And then the popular kids want her to join their clique. She finally does even after a girl called Cresida warns her not too. Sam is head of the clique and her boyfriend is Sky. Lila starts dating another boy in the clique named Reid but she really only has eyes for Sky. Then she starts to learn secrets and something in her is changing. Don't want to give out too many spoilers. http://harpsromancebookreview.com

I started this book reading the preface and it grabbed my attention immediately. I was very excited to start the story reading about how and why the town of Shade was cursed with werewolves. Lila Crane moves to Shade with her mother, who recently became divorced. At the beginning of the book it was mentioned that the mother was from this town and I hoped that her mother and her past would of been an interesting part of the book, however I didn't see much about the mother other than her not handling her divorce well. For me I think if the timeline was changed a bit it would of helped the flow of the story. Almost as soon as she got there she was invited to join the "popular" group. It felt like it was almost a week before she saw the principle and he suggested she should take a tour of the school with Tealy Sutten. It seems to me the tour and gossip might have been better if it was before the invitation to the cheer leading squad. The mystery and the investigation of the town would of been more of the focus. Of course I love mystery and intrigue so I may be bias. This is the first of the series and I'm curious to find out where Smith is going to take us.
