Bastian had to have been the most handsome man that Katherine had ever met. It really was unfortunate that he was also the most stubborn, controlling, downright infuriating jackass she’d ever known as well. Oh, and there was the fact that he was a werewolf – a werewolf who has bitten her.
Sixteen-year-old Katherine Mayes had never believed in mythological creatures like werewolves or mermaids – certainly not those sparkly vampires that her friend Abby was obsessed with. Even when she’s bitten by a massive animal after a reckless night of teenage adventure and her body begins to change in mystifying ways, she can’t force herself to believe in what she’s convinced is impossible. Little does she realize she’s been infected with a disease a little more permanent than the rabies she feels fortunate to have not contracted.
Her fierce denial is soundly shattered, however, when she is simultaneously saved and kidnapped by Bastian and his pack. Forced to leave small town Iowa behind and adjust to their way of life in a hidden society, Katherine must also deal with fighting the pull she feels towards the man – or wolf, rather – who has bitten her and disrupted her life so completely.
Bitten begins when Katherine and her friends end up in a place they know they shouldn't be in. But when Katherine decides to go venture further, and finds a strange wolf after things go downhill fast. Mainly, after getting bitten by said wolf, her life starts to change in ways she never imagined. Now, the thought of werewolves, packs, alphas, and more are in her regular norm, but more she's attracted to the man who she can't stand. However, it's not exactly as it seems, and as Katherine goes further into this world she realizes she may not be able to stay away.
Bitten was a wonderful surprise. I found it on the Kindle Unlimited, and was extremely grateful for it. I adored this story! It was so extremely different from most werewolf romance, and it was awesome.
I loved the whole plot line. The beginning makes it seem like your typical young adult story, but that quickly changed as the story progressed. Then when I least expected it a really awesome alpha male hero shows up and I adored Bastian and Katherine together. They were amazing!
Also, I really liked all of the other members of the pack, and seeing the heroine's relationships with them as well.
The only downside to the story was I was annoyed with how sometimes the author would refer to the characters by the color of their air instead of their names, it was a bit odd and frustrating as well.
Other than that I really enjoyed this one, and thought it was really good!
