Just One Drop by Quinn Loftis (The Grey Wolves #3)
Jennifer Adams, best friend to Jacque Pierce and Sally Morgan, spicy, out spoken, a little crazy and human…or so she thought. Jen has just found out that human DNA is not the only thing that resides in her veins, she happens to share that little pesky werewolf gene, although it isn’t more than just a drop. Now that she and her friends are living in Romania with Fane’s pack, she is also oh so conveniently stuck with the object of her affection, the fur ball Decebel.
Drawn to each other by something they don’t understand Jen finds herself frustrated by the lack of mating signs between her and said fur ball. Not only is she dealing with that not so un-frustrating problem, she now has been informed that because of that little drop of werewolf blood in her she is now required to attended a multi-pack gathering for un-mated wolves. This type of gathering hasn’t taken place in over a century but with a shortage of females among the werewolf population the males are getting worried they won’t ever find their true mates.
Meanwhile Decebel struggles with the emotions he is feeling towards Jen. He tries to keep his distance but there is just something about the mouthy blonde that keeps him coming back for more of her verbal abuse that he just can’t seem to get enough of…go figure. From Goodreads.
This series just gets better with every book. Now that Fane and Jacque are bonded and married they are safe. Or at least it seems that way. This book is about Jen though and Dec. This time the problem is that all unmated weres and anyone who has any just a drop of Grey Wolf blood has to attend a giant type of speed dating. The Alpha’s are hoping that by doing this that the unmated will find their true mate. This is noble and all that but for the people that barely have any Grey Wolf blood in their system it is harder for it to show that they are true mates.
This time around though, the reasoning for the bad guy is that he is jealous that Fane found his true mate and Fane is only 18 years old and he has been around a lot longer and needs his true mate now not later. Men, they only want what they can’t have of course.
In this one Dec and Jen are drawn to each other but they don’t have any signs of being mates so technically he can’t freak out on every guy that talks to her or touches her. Of course that doesn’t help anything because he does it anyways. They have one of those love/hate relationships except that they really do love each other but can’t talk or do anything about it unless the signs start showing. Eventually something happens and they are separated because he threatens everyone over a video of her and 2 other unmated girls from their pack.
While they are separated, Valise and his wife are poisoned. So Jen, Sally and Marianna go out looking for a plant that will stop the poison. While they are out looking Marianna knocked Jen into a drop in the mountain where she was dying, but by putting her life in jeopardy Jen and Dec now are showing signs of being true mates. Seems ironic since they have only wanted to be together and now they can’t because she is dying alone.
This book was like a roller coaster ride of ups and downs with my emotions. I think this may have been my favorite book of the series so far.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
