Tells a rather sweet love story, and suggests that being a wolf may be more comfortable for a strong, smart woman than being human. Tired of a life spent hiding and protecting, a life where her most important job is hunting down rogue werewolves. Tired of a world that not only accepts the worst in her—her temper, her violence—but requires it.
The result was aggressive alpha dominating in sex. It was good. This was better than some of those BDSM scenes with males dominating. I liked it. They were hot for each other. I liked that she was angry about things and refused to forgive. I can identify with that.
It was good conflict.

So I watched the show first, so a four out of five might be unfair since I was comparing and contrasting the entire time I read this one soley so I could read the rest of the series--I knew I'd be confused if I just went off of Season 1 of Bitten.
I appreciate that the show did not take too many creative licenses and the book was very much like the show. I like that I got a lot of background in the book that the show glosses over--definitely helped fill in the blanks. The book did a much stronger job of illustrating Elena and Clay's connection and pull towards one another, but the mutt rebellion plot line was more intricate in the show.
So overall I liked it, and I'll be buying the next book especially since Season 2 of Bitten doesn't have a start date yet in the U. While the plot has become as mundane as a detective novel, the character development is intriguing and I loved the way everything tied together at the end. As someone who visits this genre a lot I'm very hard to please and while there were some internalized social constructs that had me questioning the messages the novel conveyed I felt that the character growth made up for it.
I got the audible bundle deal for the book and am quite pleased with the narration.
The sound effects used were very rare but enhanced the scenes they were used in. The narrator had a wide range of inflections and it was easy to tell the characters apart. She was very natural and, if I'm honest, half the reason I went ahead and got the second book in the series. Overall, I'm excited to see how Elena grows in the next novel and curious to see how the author handles world building.
Really well done werewolf urban fantasy romance. Paperback Verified Purchase. It was smart. I was pleased. This is good storytelling. Good character and plot development. And I liked the major source of conflict between the couple, and how that worked and developed. One negative: Heroine did something stupid in the major climax.
Some readers felt Elena was cheating on her boyfriend. I know, this was not exactly dating. She was trying to find herself - figure out what she wanted and whom she wanted. Some readers did not like the first sex scene being similar to rape. Twice the guy asked her to say stop if she wanted. Ducking my head, I catch it in the throat, but my. It tries to back off for a second lunge, but I leap at it, backing it into a tree.
It rears up, trying to get out of my way. I slash for its throat. This time I get my grip.
Blood spurts in my mouth, salty and thick. The coyotes mate lands on my back. My legs buckle. Teeth sink into the loose skin beneath my skull. Fresh pain arcs through me. Concentrating hard, I keep my grip on the first coyotes throat.
I steady myself, then release it for a split second, just long enough to make the fatal slash and tear. As I pull back, blood sprays into my eyes, blinding me. I swing my head hard, ripping out the coyotes throat. Once I feel it go limp, I toss it aside, then throw myself on the ground and roll over.
The coyote on my back yips in surprise and releases its hold. I jump up and turn in the same motion, ready to take this other animal out of the game, but it scrambles up and dives into the brush. With a flash of wire-brush tail, its gone.
I look at the dead coyote. Blood streams from its throat, eagerly lapped up by the dry earth below. A tremor runs through me, like the final shudder of sated lust. I close my eyes and shiver. Not my fault.
They attacked me first. The ravine has gone quiet, echoing the calm that floods through me. Not so much as a cricket chirps. The world is dark and silent and sleeping. I try to examine and clean my wounds, but they are out of reach. I stretch and assess the pain. Two deep cuts, both bleeding only enough to mat my fur.
Ill live. I turn and start the trip out of the ravine. In the alley I Change then yank my clothes on and scurry to the sidewalk like a junkie caught shooting up in the shadows. Frustration fills me. It shouldnt end like this, dirty and furtive, amidst the garbage and filth of the city.
It should end in a clearing in the forest, clothes abandoned in some thicket, stretched out naked, feeling the coolness of the earth. I should be falling asleep in the grass, exhausted beyond all thought, with only the miasma of contentedness floating through my mind.
And I shouldnt be alone. In my mind, I can see the others, lying around me in the grass. I can hear the familiar snores, the occasional whisper and laugh.
I can feel warm skin against mine, a bare foot hooked over my calf, twitching in a dream of running. I can smell them: The image shatters and I am staring into a shopwindow, seeing nothing but myself reflected back. My chest tightens in a loneliness so deep and so complete I cant breathe.
I turn quickly and lash out at the nearest object. A streetlamp quavers and rings with the blow. Pain sears down my arm.
Welcome to realitychanging in alleyways and creeping back to my apartment. I am cursed to live between worlds. On the one side there is normalcy. On the other, there is a place where I can be what I am with no fear of reprisals, where I can commit murder itself and scarcely raise the eyebrows of those around me, where I am even encouraged to do so to protect the sanctity of that world.
But I left and I cant return. I wont return. As I walk to the apartment, my anger blisters the pavement with every step. A woman curled up under a pile of dirty blankets peers out as I pass and instinctively shrinks back into her nest.
As I round the corner, two men step out and size up my prospects as prey. I resist the urge to snarl at them, but just barely. I walk faster and they seem to decide Im not worth chasing. I shouldnt be here. I should be home in bed, not prowling downtown Toronto at four A. A normal woman wouldnt be here. Its yet another reminder that Im not normal. Not normal. I look down the darkened street and I can read a billet on a telephone post fifty feet off.
I catch a whiff of fresh bread from a bakery. I stop by a storefront, grab a bar over the windows, and flex my biceps. The metal groans in my hand. I chant the words in my head, flagellating myself with them. The anger only grows. Outside my apartment door, I stop and inhale deeply. I mustnt wake Philip.
And if I do, I mustnt let him see me like this. I dont need a mirror to know what I look like: Definitely not normal. When I finally enter the apartment, I hear his measured breathing from the bedroom.
Still asleep. Im nearly to the bathroom when his breathing catches. His voice is a sleep-stuffed croak. Just going to the washroom.

I try to slip past the doorway, but hes sitting up, peering nearsightedly at me. He frowns. Fully dressed?
I went out. A moment of silence. He runs a hand through his dark hair and sighs. Its not safe. Damn it, Elena. Weve discussed this. Wake me up and Ill go with you. I need to be alone. To think. I know. Im sorry. I creep into the bathroom, spending longer than necessary. I pretend to use the toilet, wash my hands with enough water to fill a Jacuzzi, then find a fingernail that needs elaborate filing attention.
When I finally decide Philip has fallen back asleep, I head for the bedroom. The bedside lamp is on. Hes propped on his pillow, glasses in place. I hesitate in the doorway. I cant bring myself to cross the threshold, to go and crawl into bed with him. I hate myself for it, but I cant do it. The memory of the night lingers and I feel out of place here.

Living in Toronto for a year, Elena is leading the normal life she has always dreamed of, including a stable job as a journalist and a nice apartment shared with her boyfriend. As the lone female werewolf in existence, only her secret midnight prowls and her occasional inhuman cravings set her apart.
Just one year ago, life was very different. Adopted by the Pack when bitten, Elena had spent years struggling with her resentment at having her life stolen away.
Torn between two worlds, and overwhelmed by the new passions coursing through her body, her only option for control was to deny her awakening needs and escape. But now the Pack has called Elena home to help them fight an alliance of renegade werewolves who are bent on exposing and annihilating the Pack. And although Elena is obliged to rejoin her "family," she vows not to be swept up in Pack life again, no matter how natural it might feel.
She has made her choice. Trouble is, she's increasingly uncertain if it's the right one. An erotically charged thriller, Bitten will awaken the voracious appetite of every reader, as the age-old battle between man and beast, between human and inhuman forces, comes to a head in one small town and within one woman's body.
