Disclosure: This ebook was provided by the author in exchange for an HONEST and not necessarily positive review.

This story has potential to have great storyline, but some of this book contained just a little too much detail. It starts off with lots of action and keeps going all through the book.

I love that Roy is a marine that gets turned into a werewolf. Laura is a ex con artist who turned away from her conning ways to being involved with something horrifying at her job, which has her feeling guilty. She heads to the mountains to getaway and meets Roy.

Running away from one problem just might have her running into another one. Both Laura and Roy suffer from their pasts and they have to cope the the trauma from it. In the end, both have their past coming to find them and finding out this is what keep me reading this story to the end. Along the way they find they have others to help them get through all trouble that happen to them.

If you like lots of action and werewolves, this is a good story to read.

3.5 stars: LAURA’S WOLF is the first storyline in Lia Silver’s contemporary, adult WEREWOLF MARINES paranormal series. The focus of this storyline is on former marine Roy Farrell and bank teller Laura Kaplan. When Laura arrives at her father’s Yosemite mountain hideaway for a much needed R&R she will discover that she is not alone. Homeless and suffering horrendous PTSD Roy Farrell has found his peace and solitude in the Kaplan’s barn. What he never expected was to find the woman who would one day be his alpha mate.

The focus of the storyline is the building relationship between Roy and Laura but also the debilitating PTSD suffered by those who have witnessed and survived traumatic events. Not only does Roy blame himself for the disaster in Afghanistan that took the life of a friend but he awoke in a military research centre as a werewolf without a pack. Add a secret government lab and Roy’s flashbacks, emotional disturbances and sensory overload push the marine over the edge and beyond. As the storyline progresses, Laura will become the target of another werewolf pack and her life will never be the same.

The relationship between Roy and Laura is slow to build as a good portion of the storyline focuses on the cause and symptoms of Roy’s PTSD. Their attraction to one another is immediate; Roy’s wolf knows that Laura is his mate but it will take the man a little longer to understand the needs and the wants. Roy is so immersed in past that he is unable to get on with his life.

The storyline reads like a psychological research paper where our hero is unable to move forward or forgive himself for what happened overseas; his symptoms and reactions are catastrophic and place himself and the others in danger; he is a lone wolf who needs the company of the pack but a pack that does not know he exists.

The world building brings together many secondary characters as well as the introduction of Roy’s sire and friend. At times the focus of the storyline plot was lost in the copious amount of PTSD symptomology and it didn’t stop with our hero but branched out to other members of the pack and Laura as well-everyone suffered some form of PTSD. The ebb and flow of the storyline pacing was also a victim of the symptomology and, there were a few inconsistencies that should have been caught by a good beta or proof reader.

Overall, LAURA’S WOLF is an interesting read. There is a building romance; a little bit of sex; heartbreaking and emotional PTSD; developing friendships and the start on the long road to recovery. Roy Farrell’s healing process is only the beginning and I hope to see a HEA for Laura and her mate.

The author has a slightly different take on werewolves in that each werewolf gets a special power that is unique to them i.e. supersensitive hearing or super strength or knowing when someone is lying, even complete strangers. Werewolves co-exist in secret with humans and whilst there is longevity, they are not immortal. The romance in this book is between Laura and Roy. Laura is a former con artist who goes straight and gets a job as a bank teller. Roy is a Marine who is seriously injured in Afghanistan and is sent back to the States for recovery. When Roy was injured, he was near death so his best friend DJ, a born werewolf, turned him. During the medevac, Roy changed into his wolf in front of humans, and the next time he woke up he was in a secret government laboratory. He manages to escape and goes on the run, ending up in Yosemite. Laura has taken time off from work following an armed bank robbery at her branch in which a customer was killed. To take stock and refresh her batteries she drives to her father’s cabin in Yosemite, but when she gets there, she finds a note from her father telling her that he had to leave unexpectedly and that there is a homeless veteran (Roy) living in the barn.

After Roy is shot saving her from a kidnap attempt, Laura takes him into the cabin and nurses him back to health. Because of his escape from the laboratory, Roy assumes the kidnapper was looking for him and Laura got in the way. For her part, Laura believes the kidnapper was looking for her father. In actual fact, they are both wrong. The book explores how they overcome their insecurities and find love with each other. They also become part of a pack with some interesting characters that have their own stories to tell.

I really enjoyed the book and will buy the 2nd book when the author has finished writing it! There were some grammatical errors but not enough to put you off. In my opinion, this book was perhaps a couple of chapters too long but it didn’t spoil my overall enjoyment.

The first book in the Werewolf Marines series is an intriguing shifter romance with lots of emotional depth. The author has added a couple of unique and interesting elements that surprise the reader and adds a little heartfelt humor. I enjoyed this romantic drama even though I found it was kind of slow in a couple of places, but it imparted important emotional information that draws the reader deeper to the characters.

3 ½ STARS

I thoroughly enjoy the world of paranormal books, they allow for great stories and wonderful people to be brought to every reader and this book is a perfect example!!
Lia's writing is excellent, her ability to combine the concept of the paranormal and the normal world is compelling...I couldn't put my kindle down until I finished it!!
Can't wait till I can get hold of DJ's story!

As I couldn't write a book maybe shouldn't be so critical... This book suffered from the author not being able to put the pen down... It just went on and on... At the end all was revealed the author was a therapist! Some of the conversations between Roy and Laura were so long winded, just made you want to skip ... To the next bit as it was repetitive....

A wonderfully engrossing story. The character's suck you into the story and make you read to the end no matter how late it is. A really good story I hope there is more as I'd like to read what happens to the pack next. Everyone must read this.

Have to say I enjoyed this, couple of times I felt it dragged a little bit. But all in all a great story with hopefully more to come, and covering some sensitive areas with understanding. Worth a read.
