Alpha Instinct By Katie Reus

Title: Alpha Instinct

Series: Moon Shifters bk 1

Author: Katie Reus

Genre: Paranormal

Fear has a scent. So does desire…

Ana Cordona has been a strong leader for the lupine shifters who survived after all the males and most of the females in her pack were mysteriously poisoned. As tough as she is, with no Alpha male, the pack is vulnerable to the devious shifter Taggart, who wants to claim both their ranch and Ana as his own. When Connor Armstrong comes back into her life, promising protection, it’s almost enough to make Ana forget how he walked out on her before—and reluctantly accept his offer to mate.

The minute Connor sees Ana again, it reawakens a raw hunger. He must have her for his bondmate—his wolf cries out for it. But his human side knows he must proceed with caution because of their complicated past. If he is to truly have her body and soul, he must go beyond his burning desire and win back her heart. Whatever it takes, he is determined not to leave her side again.

But Taggart and his rival pack are not their only enemies. A human element in town is targeting shifters. Their plan not only threatens Ana and Connor’s future, but the lives of the entire pack…

This is my first Katie Reus book and based on this one I will be going back for more. I was completely captivated by the world that she has created.

It took me a while to get into the book, but that was no fault of the authors, it was because I was getting sick and distracted. Once I was able to finally sit down and read the book I finished it in one reading.

This is one of those books where I have to say I would have liked it better if it was in first person and from Connor’s point of view. I know I know it’s not something you expected to hear but it’s true. For me this book was all about Connor and his men. I wanted more of them and a little less of Ana and all her drama.

She was supposed to be the Alpha but acted more like a willful child. She knew that her pack was vulnerable and needed a strong Alpha but she resented Connor because of something that had happened more than 50 years ago when she was still really young. Her bad attitude doesn’t help matters when it comes to the dynamic of the pack.

The secondary characters are really great in this book as well. There is Liam and Ryan two of Connor’s pack mates, Liam is Connor’s second in command and brother. He’s story begins in this book and will be book 2.

If you are looking for a new paranormal series then you should definitely give this series a try.
