Review! Laura's Wolf By Lia Silver

Laura's Wolf (Werewolf Marines, # 1)

Laura’s Wolf has a great storyline. I really liked Laura. I found her character entertaining and her back ground was so intriguing. She is young but has a big backbone and she takes everything in stride. It was refreshing to not see her become one of those “save me all the times” girl. Roy, is so broken but he is also level headed and approaches everything cautiously. That’s the military piece coming from him. He is so scared and reserved that you just want to see him open up and come out all right. The story was different, which is refreshing to get a new take on a werewolf story. The romance and action were good, story was a bit long but it keeps you entertained. It kept me pulled in until about three quarters till the end and then it became clinical for me. The action had reached its climax and you were on the downside but the story kept going with the main focus on PTSD. The author was great about helping you understand how a person is effected by PTSD both in the military and not. This book was not only an enjoyable fiction story but one you can learn from as well. 


Roy Farrell is convinced that he has no future.

Roy never wanted to be anything but a Marine. But on his last tour of duty, he was bitten by a werewolf. Next thing he knew, he was locked up in a secret underground laboratory. Despite the agony caused by his newly enhanced senses, he managed to escape his captors. Unable to return to the Marines, his entire life shattered, he hid out in the woods of Yosemite.

Laura Kaplan is desperate to escape her past.

Curvy bank teller Laura was acclaimed as a hero for her courage during a bank robbery gone violently wrong. Overcome with guilt over the people she couldn’t save, she fled the city to seek solace in a lonely cabin in Yosemite. But she can’t run forever from the dark secrets of her past.

Can two broken people heal each other?

After Roy is badly wounded saving Laura from a mysterious enemy, they take refuge together in her snowed-in cabin. Forced to depend on each other for their very survival, they must come together to save their lives, face their fears, and find their hearts.
