RATING: 4 HUNTER & GAGE STARS!
It was all Gage's fault. He insisted we drive through the storm and take the back roads. By the time the storm hit full force we had no chance. One night of snowbound sex changed our relationship forever. The problem was at the same time I caught another guy’s attention. This other guy happened to be the alpha of a pack of shifter wolves. I thought the wolves were the worst of my problems, but I was wrong. When things went from bad to worse I had to make a lifelong sacrifice to save Gage, but what price is too much to save the one you love?
BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:
I enjoyed this first installment in The Dire Wolves Chronicles. Alyssa built a great foundation for this series.
Mary Anne has been crushing on Gage, she has known him quite a few years as they came from the same town.
Gage has offered Mary Anne a ride home for Thanksgiving, in more than one way.
This is where nothing goes to plan for these two.
Enter Hunter. The all Alpha male who at first had me a little confused at his strong emotional pull towards Mary Anne. It was flat out possessive, confident and a little egotistic from the start.
He stepped toward me, backing me up to the bed until my only choice was to sit down on it. “I’m attracted to you, Mary Anne. My body aches to join with yours, but that doesn’t mean I’ll listen to that desire. I can control myself, and I’d never force myself on a woman. I have patience.” He leaned over me, his hands making imprints on the bed on either side of me. “But what I can’t control is my need to protect you. That need isn’t one that can be pushed away or denied. I cannot, and will not, allow something to happen to you.”
“You don’t even know me. Is this just because I’m a girl?”
“I would protect anyone worthy, but I’d go farther for you. You’re exactly what I’ve spent years waiting for.”
Now he was getting creepy again. “I take it you don’t get out much?”
I simply didn’t get it at first, but then we get a glimpse of something more.
I did enjoy watching Gage stand up for himself and try to protect Mary Anne, even if it was almost impossible to win against a man like Hunter.
We get introduced to Chet, Falcon and Marni.
More story unfolds making me curious to read more in this series.
I kind of like the villains. At first I was wondering who the true villains were, but then, more story unfolds and I am intrigued to know more.
A good start to this series, leaving me wanting to know more about Hunter and that ending begs me to read Dusk # 2.

A single howl made me stop short. “The wolves!”
“Let’s hope they are farther away than they sound.” Gage tightened his hold on my hand and pulled me forward.
Three more howls filled the night. “They sound closer.”
We picked up the pace, and I chanced a glance behind me. That was a mistake. Several large grey wolves came into view. “Run!”
Gage didn’t need to be told twice. He broke into a run without letting go of my hand.
I ran as fast as possible over the frozen snow, but we didn’t get far before the wolves started circling around us. “Oh my god.” Could things get any worse?
“You have to make a run for it.” Gage’s voice quivered. “They’re going to kill us.”
“I’m not leaving you.” I tried to stay strong, and I kept my eyes locked on the wolves. There were five of them. All of them were massive, much larger than any wolf I’d seen before, but one of them was even bigger and had a large silver streak running down its back. That wolf seemed to be staring right at me.
“I’ll distract them. You run. I’ll catch up.”
I spotted an opening next to one of the smaller of the wolves and went for it. I didn’t make it far before one of the wolves stepped in front of me. I froze, paralyzed with fear, before my legs were knocked from under me. Suddenly, I was lying in the snow with a giant wolf hovering over me.
“We’re fucked.” Gage voiced exactly what I was thinking.
The silver streaked wolf stared down at me. It’s almost glowing eyes bored into mine. Was I really going to die as half-frozen food for a giant wild animal?
Then things got hazy and the air seemed to buzz. Moments later it wasn’t a wolf on top of me—it was a man. A completely naked man with a faint scar across his face.
“What the heck?” I tried to scurry back, but Hunter didn’t move. His very exposed parts nearly touched me. I didn’t want to notice his size, but I did. He was huge. He also didn’t look remotely concerned with the cold.
His lips brushed against my ear. “Were you going somewhere?”
The Order of the books is: Dire, Dusk, Dawn.
