Ward has a beautiful little girl who just happens to be a werewolf. She’s taken, ripped from his arms and delivered to a werewolf pack. Which pack? Ward will stop at nothing to get her back. Then he finds her and her new pack alpha, Henry. The fight is on. Ward may be no match for a vicious werewolf but he’d give his life to get his little girl back.
Wow! Finally, finally!!! A shifter book that sounds unique. I love shifters but there are so many of the same stories out there that I’ve been skipping a lot of them. Then, I read the blurb for Off the Beaten Path and I scoop this book up as fast as I can. Instantly, I love Ward. He is a good father that loves his kid and will go through extreme lengths to get her back. When he finally finds her, I wanted to squeal I was so excited. And then comes Henry who isn’t the nasty alpha that is expected. I like his personality and the way he handles both Ava and Ward. The romance is beautiful. The plot is unique.
Why, you’re probably asking yourself, only give this book 3 stars if you love it so much? THE POINT OF VIEW! Tell me it isn’t so? Yeah, yeah, it is. The author wrote both main characters in first point of view. So confusing and downright frustrating. It kept throwing me right out of the story. If this had been done in third person it would have been absolute a 5 star review, maybe even a reread for me. As is, it’s a three star rating but I will definitely be checking out more books from this author.
