Rose's Thorns || Wattys 2016
Book 1 in the Clearwater series
Maybelle Smith, or Rose as she is more known, is about as stereotypical as you get when it comes to a teenager. She hates school, her brother pisses her off, sarcasm is her first language, and she can't stand her math teacher.
Oh, yeah, and she's a werewolf, but what's a few minor details here and there.
Everything is all peaches and cream until her eighteenth birthday roles around, when she finds out her supposed 'fated mate' is her ex best friend who is also the alpha of a very touchy rival pack that hates her guts. So of course they'd be forced into marriage to avoid an attack from crazy rouges, and of course the two packs would have to live under the same roof; I mean, life just wouldn't be right if not.
So, just to recap, Rose has to mend bonds with her 'mate,' get two sworn enemies to work as one, prevent a possible massacre, and is still expected to get an A on her next math test. But like I said, minor details.
