When female wolf shifter Taryn Warner first encounters Trey Coleman, an alpha male wolf shifter with a dangerous reputation, she’s determined to resist his charms. After all, Trey—who was only fourteen when he defeated his own father in a duel, winning the right to be alpha of his pack—can’t have anything to offer the talented healer besides trouble, or so she thinks.
Taryn finds herself drawn in by Trey’s forceful demeanor and arctic-blue eyes, and she eventually agrees to enter an uneasy alliance with him. If the two succeed in convincing their respective packs that they’ve chosen each other as mates, Trey will win valuable political allies, while Taryn will escape an odious arranged mating.
But there are a lot of potential pitfalls to this plan—including the very real possibility that the wolf shifters, overwhelmed by their growing attraction to each other, will be unable to maintain the clear heads needed to pull off the deception.

Feral Sins is the first book of Suzanne Wright’s werewolf series. I saw this book in Demi @ Demi Reads Instagram story where she had a picture of her recent book haul back in February. I remember thinking it must be really good because she rarely buys physical books. I adored Wright’s demon series, so of course I had to give it a chance.

Taryn is a pack healer but instead of being shy and submissive she has a sharp tongue and a badass. She’s not afraid to fight with anyone even though she’s a latent wolf. Suzanne Wright can write such an amazing badass characters and I fell in love with Taryn just as I did with Harper. I like how instead of focusing to her looks when she listed why male wolves wouldn’t find her attractive she actually listed her characteristics.

I have mixed feelings about our hero. Trey was kicked from his father’s pack and formed his own pack called The Phoenix since he and the wolf who followed him from his old pack raised themselves from the ashes. I like his possessiveness but I don’t like he used sex as a weapon, like when Taryn heard him saying something stupid and was mad at him.

“I’d never purposely hurt you. Never. I’m a man, which means I’ll fuck up. Regularly. I’m not good with words, I spout crap when I’m angry, and I’m about as romantic as a pebble. But…See, I’m not good with words. All I can say is you’re important to me in a way I can’t explain or understand. More important to me than anything else.

I’m not big fan of shifter books these days but Suzanne Wright did good with this one. I just found the world little weird since latent wolves get so much hate and the whole alphas need to get a child before rest of the pack can get pregnant. I’m definitely continuing this series in the future. I’d really like to know what happens with the side characters, even Greta and Selma.
