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


What's me without werewolf stories? Nothing. Nada. So of course when I saw this, I just HAD to get it in my library and in my noggin. Couple werewolves with a strong female lead and it was already a winner.

Ness. Strong, misunderstood female with a shitton of things to prove to an all-male pack of hard-headed, ignorant jerks and the key to my heart. With my love for her type of character, it was easy to like her steel willpower and stubbornness when it came to proving herself. She did what she needed to do to survive, but never really forgot who she was.

The plot was amazing. What's not to love about a woman who's not allowed in the pack fighting to be the alpha whilst also finding out the truth behind her past and losses? The author did a great job at keeping me guessing the answers to the questions behind what happened to her parents and the mystery going on within the pack.

Honestly, the entire time I read this, I was glued to my phone because my kindle was dead. I started reading it at about 2pm and finished it at 8pm. Four. Hours. It took me 6 hours to read the entire book. Normally, a book around this length has me finishing after about a full day of reading (with plenty of interruptions) at work. That's enough proof to show how entirely addicted to this book I was. I'm so utterly excited to continue on with the next book!
