Leader of the Pack by Leighann Phoenix

Leader of the PackLeader of the Pack by Leighann Phoenix
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Aislinn has been on the run since she escaped from her deranged ex-boyfriend who had plans for her that would have brought a life of misery as well as losing all her control. At another dive bar as a waitress, she is used to sticking up or herself and defending unwanted advances, especially to sleazy bosses. When a man comes in looking down on his luck, Aislinn treats him the same as she would everyone else, but this is no ordinary man and he has never received the unabashed directness from another human or not.

Cullen does not want to be mated, but drowning his sorrows seems like the only way to escape the disgust he feels for agreeing to mate someone he doesn't like or want. Meeting Aislinn though throws him for a loop, everything about her calls to his wolf. He doesn't know why but he knows he needs her in his life at least some form of it, but when his mating goes awry he wastes no time to claim the one he knows is his true mate.

Wishing it would be a simple mating, Aislinn and Cullen fight an uphill battle when Aislinn's ex is back and wanting to claim her. The pack elders are suspicious of Aislinn who has an untold past she is only beginning to discover, and a spurned ex-mate has plans of her own to be the head alpha.

Excellent read, this was quite different with the aspects of the pack, there is an openness to the sexuality and exchange of partners I was not quite expecting. Not sure the story needed all of that, but I was compelled to continue reading all the same
