Initial Thoughts: This is one of my favorite books of the year. It was so good! I loved the characters and the story. It was very well developed and had such a captivating story I couldn't put it down or help falling in love with it. I'm already excited for the next book!

The Characters & Story: Katalina, or Kat, just turned eighteen and is out with her parents when they get into an accident and dark colored wolves start dragging her away. Then some light colored wolves bring her to a shed to hide her. While in the shed, a beautiful black wolf finds her, comes up to her, then turns around and leaves. When the light colored wolves come back, they tell her she is a shifter just like them and that her father is their pack leader and gave her up when she was little because they rival pack started to hunt all pure breed shifters. When her father takes her back to the pack, lots of problems happen and a hard time adjusting to a this whole new world. Not to mention her parents had died in the car accident so she's still trying to deal with that.

But remember that beautiful black wolf I mentioned earlier? Turns out, his name is Bass and he and Kat happen to be mates. He is also from the pack that wants to kill her. And the Alpha's son.

The Romance: My gosh, Bass. Let's talk about him. He was such a sweet, caring, understanding, perfect guy. We need more hims in the world, believe me. And the relationship between him and Kat was developed perfectly. Even though they felt a connection to each other from the start, the their relationship only built off of that and felt mature and real. You could clearly feel their emotions and love for each other grow and it was absolutely gorgeous.

Here is a very short favorite scene of mine that happened early one between Kat and Bass...

"Did you seriously just sniff me?" she asked, shocked at the strangeness of the past twenty-four hours. "Yes, I was just getting your scent." 

End Thoughts:I liked the pacing and how the story was set up. Winter Wolf had everything in it and it was all wrapped up in this neat book. Seriously, check it out because it was great. 5 stars.
