Ryan Michele has a huge obsession with reading, which only came to life after her best friend said she had to read Twilight. After reading that series, her entire world changed in the blink of an eye. Not only was she sucked into new worlds and all of the wonderful words authors put down on paper, she felt the urge to begin to write down the characters that played inside of her head. In doing so, Safe was born. When she’s not reading or writing, she spends time taking care of her two children and her husband, enjoying the outdoors and laying in the sun.

Life is so fragile, even for immortals.
A once happy young girl, enjoying her childhood; fantasizing about falling in love, finding her mate and having a claiming ceremony filled with love and devotion. Marking each other, and being together for eternity. Having immense amounts of sex, and children, or in this case, pups. All Shattered!! the night Zara gains her power. That night her father, Alpha of the pack, gains more power than any one wolf should have.
Instead, I am this. A shell of the strong, independent, take-no-shit-from anyone woman that I used to be.
Zara's power is to read minds. Her father, who is Alpha, uses this power over the years to gain the upper hand on the other packs. Thus destroying all other wolf packs, and making him, the most powerful ruler within the wolving community. Over the years, he has tortured, caged, and brutally hurt Zara, and her family. Pitting her brother against her, in efforts to gain his way. Using manipulation and Zara's emotions, changing the course of nature, and giving Zara a fake mate, in order to control her. He leads by fear, as opposed to respect.
On a reconnaissance mission of another, stronger pack. The simple strategic meeting goes awry, when Zara's true mate, Xavier senses her. And cue the sparks. Alpha wolf in both senses, sexy badass and commanding. Yummm!!
Destroying everything and everyone in his path, Xavier finds his mate and takes her with him to his pack home. Now, now, it isn't that easy. When Xavier introduces her to the pack as his mate and their soon to be Alpha female. Everyone becomes concerned, because Zara smells of another wolf. The entire pack is cautious of her, and is constantly on the lookout for her ulterior motive. Amidst all of the pack concerns, Zara's emotional and mental status is questionable. This once vivacious, sexy woman, has become subdued, and a recluse within herself.
As the days go by within Raber Wolf pack, Xavier learns of the ploys of Zara's father, his brutality on other packs, the reason for the dwindling packs and wolves. He also learns of Zara's power and soon another power of Zara's develop in her fear of the unknown future.
This was a sexy and quick read. I kept fanning myself all through the book. The sex and hottness factor was off the charts. Xavier... sigh... the man.. wolf..drool..................... He was commanding and soft, lovable and firm. A great leader, a fierce mate, and a superb lover. He was an enigma that I needed to unravel, and within no time, I fell in love with him.
Zara was aptly written, her trials and emotions were heartfelt. Battling herself, her father and her willingness over the unforeseen future was a nice touch. I loved that even though by nature they were mates, and their nature called for some strong intrinsic emotions. The author kept Zara's concerns and fear to the forefront of the novella, and their innate ability didn't take over.
Can't wait for book 2!!
