About An Alpha’s Choice:
The Bestselling Redwood Pack continues with the Talon Pack series.
A Broken Wolf. A Fractured Bond. A Fate Denied.
Brynn Brentwood has spent the whole of her life protecting the Talon Pack through terrors only she will ever know. She’s never asked for more in life other than to live to take her next breath and to ensure her family is safe. Regardless of her selfless wishes and the atrocities the former Alpha committed, she has always known that fate would provide for her as it had countless others. Fate is what has carried her through with one exception—upon meeting the one wolf who could be hers, he doesn’t feel their bond.Finn Jamenson has been broken more than once, left beaten and half dead—and that was before he was an adult and Heir of the Redwood Pack. When called upon to work with their allies, the Talons, he finds himself intrigued with a woman who his wolf doesn’t claim as his own. Though he knows there could be something there, he refuses to tempt himself with a wolf who could never be his when his own mate could waiting for him.

The world changed in a blink of time and now the two wolves must fight as one—ignoring the burning temptation between them—when their people are threatened. With one wrong move, their homes could be destroyed and its up to Finn and Brynn to save them all…if only they could save themselves.

Exclusive Excerpt:
“Why?” Brynn pleaded, her heart in her throat. “Why?”
She staggered from the wall, careful not to touch him. Just one taste, one touch, and she was addicted. He reached for her, then must have thought better of it because he dropped his hand. Her wolf begged for him while the woman wanted to rage in agony and sweet release.
He’d kissed her.
He’d freaking kissed her.
He wasn’t supposed to kiss her. He was supposed to keep his distance and make it easier for her to die slowly inside. He didn’t want her; he’d proven that over the past year by looking right through her as nothing but a woman, wolf, a fighter—not a potential mate.
Yet he’d pressed her against the wall and kissed her like he’d meant it, like he wanted something more than a mere kiss. Though that had been no mere kiss. That had been…everything.
She’d always known when Finn wanted something he’d go for it all—as if he couldn’t help putting everything into it, putting his whole body, his wolf, his tongue. She’d heard enough stories from women who’d been in his bed. While she hadn’t clawed their eyes out for daring to touch what should have been hers, she’d listened to their tales of his prowess. Finn wasn’t a gentle lover, but he was a caring one. He fucked like he had a purpose, and made sure every woman in his bed got off until she couldn’t walk away easily. Because it was Finn who always did the walking away—apparently, on the hunt for a mate.
Too bad he’d missed what was right in front of him on that search.

My Review
I'm learning my lesson-- as the first book I've read by Ms Ryan- I'm missing out. I've been hearing great things about her for a while and I'm thrilled to say I got several more of her books now because of this one. With that said- this book is fantastic!! I loved it! The secret of shifters has become public knowledge and it's basically a lynch mob. The supes can't hide anymore and the government is making it even worse. And now, the packs have to learn to not fight back when a human threatens them. And the two packs, the Redwoods and the Talons, have two lovely wolves to be the pr faces. Except that's a problem :)

Brynn is an alpha female whose life has centered around  protecting those around her. She has a really horrible past from what I gathered, Her father cruelly abused her. This hasn't stopped her yet. And yet, fate wants her to live miserably. She's found her mate, but he doesn't feel the same. This isn't supposed to happen. How is she supposed to work with Finn every day wanting him more than life and never having him. I felt really bad for her, though she fights pretty hard. Lol 

Finn is heir, his dad alpha, to the Redwood Pack. He had a lot riding on his shoulders as well. But a demon kinda killed him when he was younger. And though he had help to survive, some of the pieces weren't put back together. But he doesn't know that. Until the human side falls for Brynn and he doesn't understand why she is the way she is. She's hated him. But he needs to put up a good face for his pack. Their lives depend on him. Until he finds out why. I felt sorrier for him. He almost broke me, when he finally realized everything. 

The writing was absolutely flawless. With a great plot and some romance and lots of frustration and even humor, this book is all around fantastic.! Some great characters, both main and supporting, theirs a fantastic world that was created. And there's still more to come. And I have to catch up lol and this was a very emotional one too. I swear my heart broke. With that being said, I want more!! Excellent 5 PAWS!!

About Carrie Ann Ryan:
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her. When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born.
Carrie Ann is a bestselling author of over twenty novels and novellas and has so much more on her mind (and on her spreadsheets *grins*) that she isn’t planning on giving up her dream anytime soon.
