I really enjoyed reading this book. I am praying to the book gods that this turns into a series. I was left with so many unanswered questions, and unfortunately left with only liking (not loving) James. I need more! I need to know more about these characters, their backgrounds, their futures, and their world. Yes, I did have a few problems with the story (specifically the dynamic of Megan and James' relationship), but overall I really loved the story. I strongly encourage you to try this one out for yourself and to let me know what you thought.

My Rating: 2 and a half stars This story started off very good. The character's felt realistic and the problems brought up were very much plausible and would make for an interesting story. Halfway through the book, I don't know what went so wrong. It felt like the end of this book was missing because the only thing that was resolved was the differences the couple had. Megan started off as a great character. She's 18 and has always dreamed of finding her mate to the point of wanting it to be a fairytale, which was naive of her, but still very sweet. Halfway through the book, she becomes a whiny brat and at the almost end she starts to justify how her mate treated her because of his bad past. In my world regardless of what you've been through it doesn't give anyone the right to mistreat anyone. James went from mysterious stranger, to jack*ss of the century, to caring and sweet in the span of this novel. I started off giving him the benefit of the doubt and ended up despising him. There was no in between with him, it was either all or nothing. The biggest problem his relationship with Megan had could have easily been resolved by sitting down and talking it out. Instead, both parties chose to avoid each other. At one point, I started hoping that the mating with James was a fluke and that Robin or Tommy were the potential suitors. Unlike James, they were sweet, open to conversation and treated Megan like a person from the beginning. I'd really love to see them get a happy ending. The overall writing and pacing were good, but there were some parts of the book where there were too many descriptions and in other parts I was left to fill in the blanks myself. The overuse of the words 'alpha' and 'dominant' got old very quickly. The character monologues were also very repetitive which only served to fill up space. I was almost positive that this book was going to end by either setting up a new character spin-off (because of how present Robin and Tommy were in this story) or by killing off the evil things mentioned in the novel. None of those things happened and I'm still confused about it. Maybe I'm so used to spin-off novels of different characters in the stories I read that I assumed wrong with this novel. A Note: When I first saw the cover I thought this was going to be a 50 Shades type book and the synopsis doesn't help clear that up. It was only after I saw this marked as 'young adult' that my interests were piqued. After reading the story and somewhat understanding the red ribbon ritual it does go well with the book. Though I think it could have been done better because anyone who looks at this cover will not think young adult first. My Favorite Quotes: "[He was] right about time being a lie. Because there was no time in the pain. It was endless. " "Life isn't a fairy tale. You don't go through trails and everything works out perfectly. Life is hard and messy. All the time." "Sail at your own peril. For once lost, we stay forever ... empty. Then time lies and forever ends."

Bound to You by Alyssa Brandon was an entertaining shifter romance. Megan has all these grand notions of what life will be like once she has found her mate. James doesn't want a mate. They throw each other's lives into a bit of chaos. James is very intense. I loved that about him. It really helped amp up the romance too. Megan adds a little lightness to his life, which he needs. They have a chemistry that grows and changes through the story. I was thoroughly engaged in the lives of these characters from beginning to end. The ARC of Bound to You by Alyssa Brandon was kindly provided to me by the publisher for review. The opinions are my own.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher. This is the debut novel by Alyssa Brandon. I enjoyed the overall story. There were a few issues I had with the book itself. I thought there was a few holes in the book that maybe the author might close if there are more stories coming later? I'm not sure if there will be. Anyway. The writing and the story flows pretty well. The story focuses on Magan and James and their mating bond. She want's to consummate it he doesn't. There are many reasons on both sides. Their lack of communication brought on some difficult moments for the two during their story. Overall, if you like werewolf stories, I'd say give it a try. Just know there's some pieces you might get stuck on like I did and would love some more answers about a few things in the story. Hopefully there will be more to come with this band of warrior wolves!
