Book Review - Saving Margaret by Krystal Shannan

Saving Margaret (Vegas Mates Series, #2)
by Krystal Shannan
Published 2013
143 Pages

When Margaret, a female werewolf, learns of the violence that has occurred between shifters, and that more violence is being planned, her world is shaken off course in a most disturbing way. She has always counted on her father, the pack alpha, for guidance. But in the midst of such upheaval, she must put her trust in a shifter whom she has just met... and a bear shifter, no less! Her only experience with bear-shifters has been frightening so she is hesitant, to say the least. Bear-shifters are fiercely independent, and notoriously aggressive creatures. Living mostly in remote, mountainous regions they lack an understanding of pack life, and are intimidating to the most formidable of werewolf. And yet, Margaret feels drawn to this one. At 6'11" tall, Scott has just walked into Margaret's world and is about to turn it upside down.  

Upon their first meeting, Margaret's urge is to run and hide. In fact, that is exactly what she does! But Scott won't take no for an answer. And to further complicate matters, Margaret's own wolf is screaming out to her that Scott is their mate! A crossing between shifter species is rare, but not unheard of. What will her parents think? And fear keeps creeping up on her ... fear, based on a frightening experience from her past ... an experience that is about to catch up with her. With a war brewing, and faced with an uncertain future, will love prevail? And how will a bear and wolf's pairing affect her own pack? These are just some of the challenges she and Scott must face as their growing attraction pulls them together at a time when the world seems to be tearing them apart. 

I loved this book! As the second book in the series, it picks up right where the first book leaves off. Filled with great characters, both familiar and new, Saving Margaret is an exciting and fast paced read that you won't want to put down! There are plenty of twists and turns that I did not see coming, nothing is contrived, and the humor and wit flow naturally from page to page. I loved when Margaret's friend responds to Scott's aggressive nature by stating, "Take it down a notch or two, okay, teddy bear." Ha! I look forward to the next book in the series!
