{Review} First Bite by Dani Harper

Geneva “Neva” Ross doesn’t want to die. But now that she’s been turned into a werewolf against her will, she’ll do anything to protect her family and friends…even if that means taking her own life.

After witnessing Neva’s leap from a high ledge, Travis Williamson—a Changeling with a dark past—uses his powers to save her life. He feels a connection to the strong-willed woman whose eyes flash that familiar Changeling green. While Neva is hospitalized, Travis risks everything to kidnap her, knowing the approaching full moon will put everyone in jeopardy.

Bickering constantly to hide their growing attraction, Travis and Neva run from the authorities…and from Neva’s sinister sire, Meredith de la Ronde. Meredith delights in creating new shape-shifters and compelling them to do her dark bidding; now Neva must join Meredith’s murderous wolf pack…or die.

Intensely suspenseful with deliciously sexy twists, this paranormal romance—the first in (the title of series)—intertwines sensual passion with an epic, thrilling battle between good and evil.


 My Review!

Neva Ross’s world has been turned upside down. She thought she could trust this one person in her life and now she is running for her life because of this person. She didn’t leave unscathed and what happened to her nearly destroys her. She doesn’t want to believe there are creatures in the night, but now she does because she’ll be one on the next full moon.

Travis is a lone changeling by his own doing. He has a secret and he doesn’t want Neva to know because he knows she will leave when she finds out. He does know that he is the only thing keeping Neva sane and once she is back on her feet he is leaving. Or so he thought. It seems he can’t get the strong willed woman out of his mind.

In order to survive they will have to come to terms with who they are/what they are and learn to trust again.

I’ve never read anything by Dani Harper before so the Changeling thing was new to me. A changeling is basically a werewolf, as Neva would say. They can change to a wolf at will and with practice can bring their clothes back with them, which is pretty sweet. I liked all the characters in the book and I think a lot of people will either relate or like them as well. Now for the different POVs now that’s another thing. I found it difficult to distinguish who was talking when. I always got Neva, Travis, and Baker mixed up. Maybe it was just me or maybe it was just because it was it third person. I’m not sure but I had to go back and read certain parts again because I thought I was reading about another character. Other than that I really loved the idea of this book. The villain in this book was most wicked and I enjoyed an actual bad guy that has some grit. I wanted to hit her myself and I don’t say something like that lightly. It was the ultimate betrayal. I think fans of Dani Harper’s books will love this as well as werewolf lovers. I’m looking forward to the next installment in the series.

Overall: This book was sizzling with heat and action. A fantastic read by Dani Harper!!!

3.5 STARS!!
