Waking up tattooed, mated and a werewolf would shock most people but for Siddalee Brighton it’s just another day.
Siddalee has always held a burning hunger for her best friend, werewolf Jasper Gandillion. But she never realized what belonging to the animal within him would mean until he marks her in a show of passion and dominance, awakening the werewolf inside her. Siddalee was the first of many illegal breeding experiments that the Luna Werewolf Nation Alpha, Dane Velham, created and the only one strong enough to stop the monster from torturing other women and creating more experiments.
Will being the daughter of the monster who slaughtered Jasper’s pack destroy the love and lust between Siddalee and Jasper, or will they emerge as the new Alphas of the Luna Werewolf Nation?
I need to start out this review with a confession as it may have something to do with my review as a whole. I am in a book slump. Perhaps it’s me adjusting to me new work schedule, dealing with other things, less time to read…I dunno but I can’t seem to find anything that will pull me out of this darkness.
I really enjoyed the beginning of Untamable. I instantly liked Sidda’s charm, wit and backbone. She’s one tough cookie and she doesn’t care who she has to punch out to get what she wants. Her mouth is lovable in a “I would beat her ass if she said that to me” kinda way. I LOVED HER.
Jasper was a cocky alpha, hell bent on landing errr… mounting….errr…whatever….he wanted. I really loved the mystery behind what he was doing for so long in Romania with some other female while Sidda sat at home not knowing where he was. Jasper was total dominant alpha and I found him to be lovable, infuriating and completely dominant. YUMMY.
However about 30% into the book I started to, for lack of a better word, get bored. There was so much inter-pack politics and the characters where so back in forth with their feelings…I just wanted something to happen. Sidda was constantly trying to tell herself how much she hated Jasper and then in the next thought declare her love. Jasper was being a total man and just wanting to smack her ass lol.
Once the true plot of the villian, Dane, is revealed we start meeting all these secondary characters and it gets pretty hard to keep up with who is who, who is related to who, who’s been with who, and who all these pups belong to. More than once I thought about taking notes to keep track.I’m glad I wasn’t the character in the book in charge of tracking these wolves down to bring into the new pack Jasper was forming. Poor wolf has his work cut out for him 🙂
All that aside once I got into the last leg of the book the action and plot picked up considerably and I found myself drawn back in again. I really liked Stephan’s (the villains second in command) hardass character who was fighting for control over his inner demons and past actions.
I am a huge supporter of Sayde Grace. She has written some things that literally made me pace a room with anticipation. I love her writing style and for her very first attempt at paranormal romance I would say Untamable is a solid start.
I give Untamable by Sayde Grace 3.25 stars!
