Review: Deadly Crush by Ashley Stoyanoff

Dog Mountain is just like any other small town — peaceful and uneventful. Well, that is if peaceful means wolves howling all night, and uneventful means it’s overrun by pesky werewolves, then yes, Dog Mountain is just your average small town.

Jade Shaw has spent the last two years avoiding the pack. But when Aidan Collins moves to town, avoiding the dogs doesn’t seem possible. The pack wants him just as much as she does.

Determined to keep him out of the pack’s grasp, Jade does everything she can to gain his attention. Little does she know, Aidan is in deeper with the pack than she could have imagined, and competing for his attention is a deadly game, one she may not want to win.

Cindy’s Review:


Werewolves dominate the aptly named place called “Dog Mountain” and it seems that the people of the town generally accept this fact. But not everyone is happy about. Jade hates them, with a passion that to me, was filled with some misplace hostility. The “what if” plays an important part of this story for me. What if Jade didn’t hate the wolves? What if she accepted the fact that her best friend joined because he wanted to? What if her hatred was misplaced?

Aidan didn’t go looking to be a pack Alpha, he was just doing the right thing when he stopped Ray. Now he has a new home, a new “job” and maybe, a new love. Problem is, she isn’t pack. In a town where secrets seem to abound, what is going to happen when those secrets explode?

Ashley Stoyanoff brings a bit of a different were story to her readers and I enjoyed her spin on the shifter laws. I liked that Jade doesn’t just let herself fall for Aidan and that it is going to take an effort from both of them to see this through.
