(Pack Valley #1)
by S.A. Welsh
Still living with the memories of his mother’s death and subjected to the violent abuse from his stepdad Jay almost loses his mind when he’s attacked by his nemesis who turns into a bear! One identical to the grizzly bear that killed his mother years ago. The last thing he needs is to find out that Pack Valley is much weirder than it seems or that his first love Kyle and his family have a tendency to purr when happy.
Everything crashes together one night- from bullies and abusers getting what they deserve to a black jaguar protecting and claiming his mate. Can Jay deal with being claimed by his best friend or will fear of rejection stop him taking a chance?
CONTENT CAUTION: Contains human sexual contact with shifter in animal form.
Not a whole lot to say about this one, unfortunately.
It had a lot of potential and I quite liked the two main characters, but it seemed very rushed in parts and then all of a sudden it just sort of ended abruptly. To me, it felt like this was just the first part of a much larger story that was never finished/written.
It does say "Pack Valley #1", so if there's going to be a second book in the series, and it continues on where this one left off, I would probably revise my rating to 3 stars instead of just 2.
