Recaptured by the Pack: A Bayou Wolves Prequel,  Anne Marsh 

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre:  Romance,

This sounded right up my street, werewolves, adventure, a bit of danger, lots of spice and not just one but two sexy alpha males. It did have all that but somehow for me it just didn’t really work.
I felt kind of under-whelmed by the story, as if all the elements were there but didn’t reach the potential I thought the story had.  The biker gang battle was really just hinted at, a little action when Luc first comes on the scene and that’s really it. Then there’s Luc and Cruz. We didn’t really get to know much about either, what Luc had been doing over the past ten years, how they could both be Alphas and yet make the decision they did without some kind of arguments, friction, physical fights. They acted completely at odds with how Alpha werewolves are usually portrayed and I needed more reasons why. I’d have liked to have met their packs too, got a feel for how they would react. As Alphas their decisions affect the whole pack after all.  Still its a shortish read at just over 1900 kindle locations and I guess that’s why these issues don’t really get explored enough for me. I’m not really a fan of novellas and I hadn’t realised this was one, my error and I wouldn’t have chosen it if I’d known. If you enjoy novellas this could be a perfect 5* read for you but it’s a 3* from me.

Stars: two and a half, a lot of potential but didn’t really live up to it for me.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
