Once Bitten By Trina Lee

Once Bitten (Alexa O’Brien, Huntress, #1)Once Bitten
Author: Trina Lee
Adult Book
(Amy’s Review)

Alexa O'Brien is a professional huntress and a werewolf with the ability to conduct and manipulate metaphysical energy. When she is inexplicably drawn to the enigmatic vampire Arys Knight, the dangerous power they create together becomes more than either of them anticipated. As a result of their actions Alexa risks the loss of more than her remaining humanity, she risks losing the very person who holds her heart, Shaz Richardson.  When her former lover and Alpha pack member Raoul is framed for murder, he comes to her for help and Alexa is forced to face past emotions and betrayals that were never laid to rest. As the murders continue she is torn between past hurts and present loves. Amidst the rush of power and the struggle for control, Alexa must dig deep within herself to discover where her heart truly belongs. As secrets are revealed and lies exposed, she comes to discover that not everyone is who you think they are and the greatest loves are undying.

This book is about Alexa, who happens to be a werewolf with special powers.  There are 2 novella’s that come before this story that give some background on Alexa, Arys and Raoul.  They are not needed but give you insight to the relationships described in this story.  Alexa is one of those characters where the more you read about her, the more you understand her personality.  She has depth and extreme loyalty.  With her profession, you wouldn’t expect that, but she does surprise you.  Alexa has a magical pull towards Arys who is a vampire.  Neither of them understands the pull but in one night they become bound to each other until death.  Arys character is that of a typical bachelor and womanizer.  When he interacts with Alexa you see a different side of him that I think will grow in the next books.  Alexa also has Shaz wanting her attention, who is one of her pack mates.  He is the good guy that Alexa needs and wants but the bond with Arys might just kill any chance of them being together. Raoul is the alpha of their pack who just so happens to be framed for murder.  Raoul is crazy.  His actions and emotions are all over the place.  I think that the novella might clear up any questions about him.  I think if I had read the novella I might have felt more over the ending with Raoul. 

Rating 3 out of 5
