"The Alpha's Daughter" [The Wolvers Series, Book 3] by Jacqueline Rhoades
My Book Summary : Jasmine (Jazz/Hellcat) is a wolver (like a werewolf only slightly different) who is more important then most because she is an Alpha's daughter. However, that title brings it's own set of complications especially when her father (who never wanted anything to do with her before) takes a special interest in finding a mate of his choosing for her. Therefore, Jazz makes a pact with herself, she will never mate with an Alpha male, and makes plans to escape her pack.
While on her way to what she hopes will be a better future and her new pack, she makes a stop in Gilead--a small town with a nice werewolf pack living in it--to rest for the night and talk to Doc Goodman (Griz/Grizzly/Papa Bear)--a wolver and the towns Doctor--to find out about where she's going. Yet, not long after getting into town she gets into a fight, finds that her motorcycle and money were stolen, and finds that Doc is a very growly, stern wolver who she now needs to seek shelter with.
Soon Griz and Jazz's relationship goes from nonexistent to scorching but their pasts keep trying to keep them apart. Will they be able overcome the outside forces trying to separate them or will their pasts achieve their goal?
My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! Griz and Jazz push each other's buttons throughout this novel, while slowly learning to respect each other and fall for each other, but will other wolvers from surrounding packs and their pasts be okay with their knew found love?
I enjoyed this novel from the very beginning! It is fast-paced, witty, funny, and steamy. The twists and turns throughout were at times expected but it didn't make me like this novel any less, if anything, it made me enjoy it even more! Jazz is a can do type of girl who won't put up with anything that doesn't stand by her own moral code, but as she learns during her time living in Gilead the person she always thought and appeared to be isn't who she truly is and she enjoys who she turns out to be. Griz is dealing with his own personal heartache that happened a few years before Jazz gets into town. Jazz helps Griz, unknowingly, to overcome his past and be willing to accept his future, especially if Jazz agrees to be apart of it.
I recommend this novel to anyone who likes new takes on "werewolf" paranormal dramatic romances!

Book Teaser(s) :
The grizzly bear eyed the table and its contents with a jaundiced eye. He only said one word. "No."
Jazz had a word of her own "Yes."
He folded his arms across his chest. "No."
She folded her arms across her chest. "Yes." She noted that he didn't walk away. She smiled inwardly and continued, "It has to be done, Griz. You frighten small children."
"I do not frighten children."
"You do! There were six of them in the clinic today and four were wolver. They may not be ready to go over the moon, but the wolf is in them and its instincts are screaming, "Run! Grizzly Bear!" She flapped her hands and ran in place in a parody of fear and then stopped. "The human kids were just scared shitless."
He didn't budge. "You're exaggerating. They were not scared shitless."
"Then what was that big brown spot on the back of Nicky Cominski's pants? And he stank to high heaven!" Jazz put her hands on her hips. "You can look as big and growly as you want to keep away as many adults as you want. I don't care, but I draw the line at the little guys. They should not have nightmares about going to the doctor's. You could damage them for life!"
She knew damn well that Nicky's mother brought him in because of his diarrhea, but it suited her case. Jazz tried not to laugh. It sputtered out between her lips anyway.
"Aw, come on, Griz. Nicky Cominski aside, you do look a little scary in an insane kind of way. It's time to mow away the overgrowth and let the real you shine through." ~ within Chapter 13
Griz laughed and ruffled her hair. "I realize, Hellcat, that you're a kick-down-the-door-and-shoot-whatever-moves kind of woman, but I prefer to knock softly and see if they'll come quietly. Saves money on doors and bullets."For more information on this book, series, and/or any other books by Jacqueline, then please check out her website.
He did have a point. Without any real antagonism, he quietly made them all row in the same direction. It was another moment before she said, "I suppose you're right."
Griz stopped and cocked his head. "Did you feel that?" he asked.
"What?" She stopped and waited to feel whatever it was Griz had felt.
He stooped down and felt the ground with his hand. "Yep, Hell just froze over."
Jazz pushed him onto his ass. She heard him laughing behind her as she marched off home. ~ within Chapter 28
