Laura's Wolf by Lia Silver
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Laura’s Wolf is primal, hot and filled with action of all sorts. It will have you at the edge of your seat, waiting to see what will happen next.
Roy Farrel is an alpha male in a major way. All his life he has wanted to be a Marine, make a difference. But, years of military tours will eventually take its toll on even the hardest of soldiers. Roy’s last tour is anything but ordinary, and the life that he knew will be changed forever.
Laura Kaplan has a less than perfect past that she can’t to leave behind or have it stay hidden. As a current bank teller temptation to revert is always close at hand. But, what will be her last day is anything but easy going. Guilt eats away at her conscience until she has to flee, get away to freedom. But, skeletons don’t always stay buried and secrets are meant to be revealed.
Lia did an amazing job writing these characters. She put so much detail into every aspect of their lives that it will play out right before you as you read her book. I have friends who are in the military; but, they don’t talk about it and I won’t ask. Having a character that was real enough, to walk through what he suffered and will suffer, makes me feel for every single soldier serving. Imagine the things that they’ve seen. She filled Roy with so much pain, loneliness and anger that I couldn’t help but feel for him. And Laura’s out to find herself. She needs a serious confidence boost, even if she doesn’t realize it herself. She can fake it with the best of them but readers will see right through her ploys and into her soul.
While I loved this book and found myself hating that it had to end, I thought a couple areas drug on just a little too long. It would still be a five star read even being a little shorter as these areas I viewed as “filler” they weren’t….pertinent to the story itself.
If you love military men, and hot sexy alpha males with a little paranormal thrown in, I would highly recommend Lia Silver’s “Laura’s Wolf”.
