I’ve had some reviews from ARC’s for Third Mate, coming out July 16.
5 stars–Beth, Goodreads
“This is the third book and I will admit that I have read them back to back. How could I not, the author has created such an engaging story line. Werewolves who live almost completely independently of both humans and other shifters are suddenly dealing with both on a continual basis. Who are the good guys? Who are the bad guys? Seems both species have both, and how it effects each other lead to some great story lines. The sex that is mixed in is hot too.
You have David and Jax still trying to work out their relationship. Brooks trying to find where he fits in. Leo, Sam and Foster dancing around each other. Josiah and River dealing with twin girls and pack politics.
The ending surprised me and made me realize that there is even more of this wonderful world to come. There’s no cliffhanger, but the ending opens up several avenues for the story to go next. And yes I will be waiting for the next one, to continue this wonderful story.”
“This is the third book in the Wolf Pack series and without a doubt, these books just keep getting better and better.
More couples are forming, more babies are being had, more bad guys are sticking their oar in (not a euphemism) and the unrest in the pack increases due to the newcomers, the ever present humans and of course Josiah and Rivers twin girls. It’s all happening and River just isn’t able to please everyone. This instalment really had me on the edge of my seat as there just didn’t seem any way for an HEA without some drastic changes.
The author did well with the ending she gave us and although it would be an appropriate close to the story, there is so much scope to come back with at least one more book to let us know what happens next. I for one am really hoping that is the case here. This feels like the beginning of an entirely new chapter rather than an ending.” (less)
4.5 Stars–Jaime, Goodreads
“This is book Three is Rebecca James “River Wolf Pack” series and I have to say it is my favorite book yet! In this book we get to see all of our characters from Books one and two and catch up with them while meeting and falling in love with new characters. If you have not read books one and two in this series, you will not fully understand this book.
The characters are many in this book, River & Josiah – along with their twins; David & Jax, The Omegas; Briar and Kane; Liam and Sawyer; Brooks, Leo, Sam, Foster, Farrah the healer, and more..so it’s a very full story. This story also gives us more insight to another Pack, Milo’s Pack -The Angel Hills Pack.
The love matches in this story are many and then the coupling off to just romp in the woods happen too. The testosterone is flying high in this book as the pack starts to implode and infighting begins as other Alpha’s question whether a River is being too lenient and making decisions based on his Omega Josiah’s desires rather than for the good of the pack. There is also the issue of [spoiler can be read at GR’s] this makes River’s choices even more scrutinized by those Alpha’s in the pack who would like nothing more than to be the new Pack Alpha.
I am a tad upset about the ending – as I wish there were more questions answered but I can only hope that means we have more books coming. I was a little frustrated with Jax and his wishy-washiness over whether to take the bite and be with David fully or to let David go on with his life and Jax return to his; however, I think they have reached a happy medium for now. This has been a fun series thus far, with lots of hot as hell sex – these guys really are almost over the top. If polygamy or certain animalistic traits bother you, this story may not be for you – I enjoyed it however.”
