The Alpha’s Claim by Holley Trent #mm #review @holleytrent @CarinaPress


Disclaimer MaleTAG

Jim West, the New York Coyote pack alpha, has successfully defended his territory from external threats for almost fifteen years. Pack politics may be a pain in his ass, but his command has never been doubted, his authority never questioned.

Until Teddy, an argumentative pancake-house server, challenges more than his patience. The lithe, pretty human calls to Jim’s baser instincts. He knows instantly Teddy is his mate – but the timing couldn’t be worse. Tension within his pack is growing, and adding a human mate to the mix could spark an uprising, with Teddy as the target.

Teddy’s smart mouth may heat Jim’s blood, but with a full moon only days away, getting Teddy to let down his guard and accept him – the man and the beast – is his main priority.

There’s no fighting the pull of a mate, but learning his lover is a literal predator might make Teddy run right into the danger Jim’s desperate to control.

This was an interesting story for me…  I liked it, but I also didn’t like it.

The storyline was one that pulled me in originally, but as I got further into the book, I didn’t have that “pull” to keep me super wanting to know what was going to happen next.

I really liked Teddy’s character though. I liked how he was willing to put the breaks on things and figure it out without getting too drawn in to Jim’s desires.

Jim was a typical shifter alpha, and while I do normally like the paranormal alpha male thing – but at the same time with Jim it just got to be too much.

Overall – I would say that if there is a second book in the series, I would read it.  But this isn’t in one of my top reads.
