"To Save A Mate" [Somewhere, TX Saga, Volume 1] & [The VonBrandt Family Series, Book 1] by Krystal Shannan (aka Emma Roman)

Author's Book Description : A chance he never thought he’d have comes at a price he never wanted her to pay

What do you do when everything you thought was real turns out to be a lie? How do you pick yourself up and move on? Move past the pain?

Kara McClure is living the perfect life. A great boyfriend, supportive loving parents, and a full ride to John McAdams University on a scholarship. What could go wrong? But something always does. When tragedy hits, you’re supposed to be able to count on those closest to you for support. Kara turns to the love of her life, Vincent Harris, only to find him supporting the nether lips of her sorority sister.

Luke VonBrandt is a business college student with a secret no one can know. When an accident threatens the life of an innocent girl he’s secretly loved since high school, he risks everything to give her a second chance on life, even exposing the truth about what he is. The blue-eyed beauty haunts his dreams and her scent is all he can think about.

Luke’s wolf insists he find a way to claim her as his own.

But Kara’s broken heart will fight him every step of the way.

My Book Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars, loved from afar for years Luke knows Kara is the one for him. However, since she has been dating a douchebag for the past five years he is still waiting for the perfect time to make his move. Kara thought her world was perfect until the day that everything crashed around her and basically killed her. Thankfully, Luke is there to help her pick up the pieces of herself and her life, but in doing so his family's secret comes out into the open as he sacrifices everything to save her. Will the sacrifice (on both their parts) be worth it though?

This is a heart-wrenching story about loss and finding the will to move on. While I'll admit that I knew there was going to be tragedy in this novel, I didn't expect the intensity of it as thoroughly as it's displayed in this novel. And in truth after a while, it was quite depressing. I mean I understand Kara is grieving but WOW .... if Luke didn't claim her as he did, I'm not sure she would have had the will to live. It's because of that claim and the way both they (Luke & Kara) go about growing their newfound relationship that makes me question the authenticity of their romance/love/like. Also, it is why I didn't give this novel a higher rating. I read it all in hopes that I'd like the novel more as their relationship progressed but it was as though the cards were too stacked against them so even though they get their supposed HEA I wasn't sold by it.

Nevertheless, because I enjoyed Luke, his family, and their story of how they became werewolves I do recommend this novel to those looking for a unique paranormal NA romance.

Book Teaser(s) :
He glanced at his brother and growled. Noah was grinning.
"You've got it bad for her."
"Shut it."
"You always have. But now you're bonded. What is that like?"
"Like having her right next to me all the time, but not being able to touch her. Plus, every time I look at her I want to throw her over my shoulder and find a big bed to crawl into."
Noah snorted and laid a hand on his shoulder. "I'm gonna let you figure that one out. In the meantime, I think I saw her class schedule tucked in the front pocket of her purse. I'm going to go buy books. I'll drop hers by later." ~ within Chapter 4
