As Julia and Marco race to stop the Wolf Hunter’s men, Julia will have to do more than just tame her wild wolf… she’ll have to decide whether giving up everything she wants will bring her the one thing she really needs.

This was an intense read that had me wide-eyed so many times, I forgot to blink. The action, the race against time, the heroics, the near misses, and a wonderful romance woven in altogether made Wild One an awesome read.

This story is about Julia and Marco. Marco is a character that I was briefly introduced to in Wild Heat. Like the other two books I read and reviewed, this book can also be read as a standalone. This is the kind of series that I like – I can pick up any book and feel like I’m getting the complete picture, with so many intriguing teases from previous stories, I actually want to read them, even if they’re out of order. It all works.

Another thing that works is the pairing of Julia and Marco. She’s running, unsure of where her life is leading, and Marco is fighting to create a place where shifters can have lives worth living. He’s a hero because he truly cares and wants to help every wolf shifter – from little kids to the elderly, that society has ignored and shoved to the outskirts, just because they are who they are. Marco is perfect hero material. Julia is in her own way, too. She is selfless and she throws herself into any situation she believes in 100% even when she’s outnumbered and outclassed. She’s feisty and ferocious. In short, she’s a perfect heroine to match the hero. I enjoyed getting to know them.

That dastardly villain, The Wolf Hunter, has ramped up his villainy. This time, he’s crossed the line by targeting kids. The really whacked thing is that he hates shifters in an obsessive kind of way and if a reader has read Wild Heat, they’d know why it’s so twisted. The Wolf Hunter has issues – Marcos made me laugh when he referred to those ‘issues’, even while he was being brutally tortured. That might be a bit much for some readers because his torture was being witnessed by some kids that were going to be the killer’s next victims. Readers can be assured that the author took care of the kids when the time came. I think that drama is what made this book so powerful and compelling. This is the type of wickedness that needs to be defeated, and heroes come to the fore from unexpected places. Ms. Woods surprised me with who ended up helping in the big battle scene towards the end. I was most impressed.

The romance between Marco and Julia was great. It wasn’t fast; there were some mix-ups and some personal trials and challenges they both had to overcome while trying to keep everyone safe. Their budding love grew over the course of the book and when they finally came together in passion, it was hot, hot, hot. One thing I didn’t share in past reviews of the other two books was how the author has the hero and heroine mate. I’ve never read anything like it and it’s clever, unique and quite awesome. And, I can’t forget to mention sexy, it’s very sexy.

The happy ever after wrap up was just as impressive, positive and happy as I could wish. There are challenges yet to face for the Wilding pack and all their allies. I’m looking forward to reading the next book and finding out who gets their HEA next. If paranormal romance readers haven’t discovered this series yet, they are missing out. I’m so happy to have a new favorite author to binge read!
