For disgraced physician Kim Sharpe, Fire Creek was supposed to be a sanctuary, a place to hide from media scrutiny and the public eye. But when a group of wolf shifters break into her clinic and demand she save the life of a packmate, her serene world unravels. And when the wolf dies despite Kim's efforts, she's dragged into a hunt she can't control, led by a man she desperately wants to understand.
All shifters live with their beasts, but Chris "Brick" Preston's is dangerously close to the surface. And it wants Kim. Sex keeps the beast sated for now, but unless Kim can help him find a more permanent solution, Brick risks becoming a feral, banished—or put down—by his pack.
With each incredibly intense encounter, Brick and Kim grow closer. But time is not on their side. When Kim is faced with betraying the pack in order to save Brick's life, the consequences may be more than they can survive.
TAMING HER WOLF is a pretty decent shifter paranormal romance with an interesting take on the werewolf mythology where werewolves have three aspects: human, wolf, and beast. These three aspects seem to be in a constant battle for balance and power. At times the beast can come close to being the dominate aspect which spells bad news for the shifter and those around him. I found the mythology pretty unique and liked how they built up the mystery of who was attacking the teens around this beast form. The story dragged a little bit at the beginning but about halfway through the pace picks up pretty nicely.
I was not a huge fan of Kim's backstory. She comes to town to be a doctor after having her license revoked due to a vague medical mistake. Once that mistake becomes clear (sort of) it didn't seem like a big enough issue to warrant having to go into hiding in some small town where medical malpractice isn't a issue and no one does background checks. I did enjoy Kim and Brick's chemistry and interactions with eachother. They fit together well and has some pretty steamy scenes together. Brick has some issues controlling his beast and is on the list of suspects for the murdered teens for a half a second. I liked the conflict and tension this brought to Brick and his concern for any sort of relationship with Kim.
Overall TAMING HER WOLF is a fun paranormal romance with an interesting werewolf mythology and worldbuilding. The story is not resolved in the end which I assume is purposeful as there are more books coming in this series.Series Titles:
