ARC Review: A Pack of Blood and Lies (Boulder Wolves) by Olivia Wildenstein

Book Blurb

The primal rule of winning: don't fall in love with the contender.

Three months shy of her eighteenth birthday, Ness is forced to return to Colorado. Even though it's been six years, and the wolves of her all-male pack don't recognize her, she recognizes them. People who shun others because of their gender are hard to forget.

Especially Liam Kolane--son of Heath, the crudest and cruelest Alpha to have ruled the Boulder Pack. Liam is as handsome as he is infuriating, as kind as he is punishing, and he makes Ness's traitorous heart race, which isn't good. After all, he's a Kolane. Like father like son, right?

When Heath dies, Liam vies to become the new Alpha and no one dares challenge him.

Except Ness.

Thus begins a treacherous game.

The rules: winner takes all...including loser's life.

Fans of Kresley Cole and Cassandra Clare will devour A PACK OF BLOOD AND LIES.

* Contains Alpha males.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

This story was awesome.  I read it in one day.  I couldn’t put it down.  Ness was a great character.  Her anger toward her family and the pack drove her.  It was definitely warranted.  Secrets were everywhere.  She had no idea who she could trust.  No one wanted her there and she didn’t want to be there.  I love how she wanted to get rid of the leadership of the family that destroyed her life.  She only has Evalyn.  They are quite the pair.  I like the dynamic between the two women.
The pack was another story.  The author really creates this atmosphere that they don’t want her there.  They don’t respect her or even like her.  It causes the reader to immediately get behind her.  Ness refuses to back down.  The ones who really are against her in the end are shocking.  I wasn’t expecting that.  The ending was bittersweet in a way.  She has no clue about her life as a werewolf.  Those who read the story will understand the part I’m referring to.

The competition was cool and really showed Ness’ strength and compassion.  It was an excellent read.  I give it a 5 out of 5.
