Title: Feral Sins
Series: The Phoenix Pack, #1
Author: Suzanne Wright
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

If your inner wolf and your body react rather enthusiastically to a psychotic Alpha male who’s own wolf has a tendency to turn feral, it can’t be a good thing, can it? Entering into a bargain with him wouldn’t be good either. Unfortunately, Taryn Warner, a latent wolf shifter, doesn’t have many options open to her right now. Okay, she has no options. Basically it comes down to whether she’ll do what it takes to escape the arranged mating with the sick SOB that her father set up. As the answer in this case is yes, it looks as though she’ll have to agree to Trey Coleman’s deal…she’ll have to mate with him instead. 

Having always disliked shifter politics, Trey Coleman hadn’t bothered trying to form alliances with other packs. Now that his uncle – a wolf with many alliances – means to take Trey’s territory and his pack, he has no option but to form some alliances of his own very quickly or he’ll be easily outnumbered in the upcoming battle. He figures that the easiest way to do that would be to mate with a female who’s Alpha is powerful and influential. There’s only one problem with that – he would then be stuck with her, and the last thing Trey wants is a mate. When he hears of Taryn’s situation, he offers her a deal – if she falsely claims he’s her true mate and allows him to claim her, he’ll save her from her arranged mating and then let her leave after the battle with his uncle is over. 

Sounds like a pretty straightforward deal...but soon Taryn and Trey realize they got more than they bargained for. Their mating instincts to protect and possess are weighing on them, they crave each other’s touch and company, and their inner wolves don’t like it whenever they’re apart. Add in that they’ll have to deal with this for an entire three months until the day of the battle finally arrives, and they’ve got themselves a recipe for disaster – or maybe for something quite the opposite.

Feral Sins is a wonderful werewolf story. Taryn and Trey are both two people holding back their emotions, but come together in need of each other's help. They mate, then they have to deal with all of the effects of being mated, and all of the people who oppose it. This was a very well written romance, with lots of drama, action, and laughs. There is only one part of the book that I did not like. It is towards the end, it really contradicts how possessive Trey is of Taryn through all of the book, and it makes the feelings they share not as genuine. If this part wasn't in the book, along with all of the hints to it throughout the book, I would say this is a four star, but because of this it is only a three star. I do hope the next book in this series doesn't have something like this in it. If it does I may not be reading it.
