I was given this book in exchange for an honest review by the GoodReads group Lovers of Paranormal (LoP). I was not compensated in any way.

Samantha has moved to the mountains of North Carolina where she hopes to write in peace. The descriptions used have left me wanting to go to discover those mountains. Also after Samantha meets the men working on the renovations of her new home, it left me wanting to scope out the men that live in those mountains.

Marie soon sucks you into the story as it unfolds. You’ll find yourself unable to put it down because you have to find out what’s going to happen when Samantha starts seeing wolves. Her editor is an interesting woman. She has you wondering what her agenda really is. It’s a fast read that has a great ending. It leaves you wondering if you will see more of them in the future.

Ok where to start......from the first chapter Samantha and Lucian were attracted to each other! I thought ok we got a hot and steamy book to read here ;-) then i got further into the book and realised i got it wrong!

The book is wrote in third person and i found that i had to get used to that as i have always read books from characters POVs, so it was abit confusing at first but i got over it! I felt the story was abit rushed and it didnt really have much character background, i would of loved to have found out more about Samantha and Lucian's characters.

There was an instant attraction between Samantha and Lucian (definatly a sexual one!!), even made me blush at places! Although i found the intimate moments were very quick and straight down to it!! I dont know why Samantha had to say Lucian's name so much, i love an alpha male as much as others but it even started to grate on my nerves.

This book did have a great storyline, it just lacked detail for me and raced to the end to quick. It was a fast read and i didnt dislike it so its 3 stars from me :-)

The Mating Call
I loved this book, mainly because it was about werewolves and if you have seen my other reviews. You would know how much I love my wolves. This one was a little different, because the style of writing was different, with its unique way of telling the story. I liked how the author wrote the book from many different points of views; gives it my depth to the story being told in my opinion. It was a good story with a good plot, everything tied in well, really enjoyed the story and characters. I love Lucian, he just sounds so sexy and wolf. He made the story so much better and Samantha she was feisty and learned to adapt and accept her new life, and not mention her dreams! The other characters that are mentioned in the book, made me wish that they also will have their own books so I can read more of these characters. I am intrigued what their stores will be and who they will they end up if they find their mates. I give this five stars, because I really enjoyed the story the author wrote, kept me entertain and did not stop reading till I finished the book. So I would recommend this book to any werewolf lovers like myself to read this and add it to their collection. I am sure they will enjoy it; also if they enjoy a good alpha wolf; well two, one just happened to be bad. I surprisingly liked Zachery very much; he was good at being bad and crazy. What can I say I like an author that can write a good villain, which is just another reason why I loved the book. So if you enjoy that too you should defiantly grab this book. I received a copy of this book from the R2R (LoP) in exchange for an honest review.

I gave this book 3 stars not 5!
The concept of this story was good, but the book was a short read and felt rushed. If the author made it longer and explained more of the story line and character back ground I believe it would of been a great book. It was a little frustrating to read, shame on whoever did the editing for there were many grammar errors that made it a little hard to follow at times. Samantha and Lucian erotica scenes were also a little quick, they got to business without much build up and the last scene felt like someone else wrote it (not in a bad way I actually liked that style better). If there was a follow up book I would read it though to find out what happens to everyone (just make it a little longer with more back ground please)!

I was giving this book for an honest opinion by R2R (LoP)
I hate to say it but boy was I glad this was a short read.
To me the story had no character the people within were plain.
It felt extremely rushed, if it would have been twice as long the story could have been worked out so much better. More details for example, what's up with her dreams? The story itself was not bad, but the way it came cross was not my cup of tea.
One of the main things that distracted me were the dialogs, now when I talk to someone I don't mention their name every single time.
It has a lot of grammar issues that bugged me as well.
I hate to have to give a bad review and the only reason I gave it two stars it's because the author has actually written and published a book and that took hard work and guts.

The information given for The Mating Call sounds great! I was looking forward to reading it since I love paranormal and especially Werewolves. I was disappointed for the most part with the book.
There were several grammar and spelling errors that should have been caught in the editing phase. They tended to be distracting, especially when the book was speaking of Lucian and would say her instead of he or him.
In my opinion Samantha raged and yelled too much in the beginning when normally questions would be asked.
It's a bit hard to read in some spots because of the sections being bogged down with too much detail or detail placed in odd spots. I love knowing what characters look like but it can be broken up into multiple spots. Also, usually you describe people when they are looking at each other not after one leaves the room. There also happens to be a lot of spots that repeat the same thing over and over in a small area.
The pace is a bit rushed, I understand novellas are small and you need to get from point a to point b but more filler would help spread out the plot and made for an easier read.
It does get better as you read at about the middle but it gets really hurried at the end. More could have happened or something could have been expanded on such as her gift with dreams which is only mentioned in passing.
The plot has great potential and the story would be great if it was expressed better.
