My Rating: Good

"For the last 6 years I have kept it at bay. The need, the want, the hunger. No more. I will be free to do as I please. Brandon, you have no control over me!"
Mates. They were supposed to stay together. To treasure each other. To love one another. But what happens when Choice trumps Fate, when need becomes obsession and hope flickers? This is a story of Ness, a bright young werewolf, who grew up with stories about romance and mates. None of which could prepare her for the reality - her mate chooses her best friend over her for the chance of power and glory. Fighting her feelings for Brandon, Ness accepts her own place in the world. If she couldn't have the mate that Fate destined for her, she would surely find one of Choice for herself.
Alpha Marcus Josef "Ned" Edwards has a dark past. He lost his mate 6 years ago and has dedicated his life to revenge her death. Meticulously eliminating every single wolf that was even remotely connected with the dead of his mate, he is rightfully labeled cruel, furious and dangerous. His pack mates learn to recognize the glimpses of their old loving Alpha Marcus and the ever consuming rage of the ruthless Alpha Ned, who dutifully protects them.
When Nessa meets Marcus sparks ignite. But would they be enough to bring these two wolves together?
Read to find out.
* This is a rejection story, so I went into it cautiously. You know how I hate rejection stories! I was okay with it because the guy who rejects her isn't the main male character. The rejecter is stupid and weak (as I always think them), but it's okay because he is a villain in the story.
* There is a private Mature chapter in a separate story on the profile. It's good - classy, hot not disgusting. Confusingly, later chapters in the main book have almost as much sex. Maybe people told the author that it wasn't really R rated, which I agree with.
* There turns out to be an "excuse" for Brandon's rejection, but I think it just shows how weak he is. There were alternatives.
* In this book, fate is not perfect or just not kind. Maybe it isn't your fate to be happy, but maybe you can change that, or earlier unhappiness, even with a fated mate, is meant to teach you a lesson. Choice mates are seen as better because it is based on love rather than the mate pull. I'm not sure I like this! Don't we love fated mate stories because we love the idea of someone made just for us? Whether you actually believe in soulmates or not, it's a cool idea we want to suspend disbelief for in novels! :)
* Overall, I thought it was Good, and I want to read the sequels (books about other characters).
* The politics were confusing and seemed like an afterthought. I thought they needed to be explained more. I can see how the author got ideas and was unable to go back and assimilate them into the story.
For my fellow grammar sticklers:
* While not without mistakes, it is pretty darn good. I certainly had no problem reading it.
* In later chapters the author forgets to put a separator between points of view. This is confusing, but I caught on after a bit.
