My Review:

Taming the White Wolf is the first in a new paranormal romance series by N.J. Walters. I knew I was in for a treat when I was offered the book. N.J. Walters writes such immersive and unique stories with compelling characters, vivid world-building, and swoon-worthy romances! This was no exception. It’s an exciting and fast-paced story with a ton of action and suspense as Zoe and Devlin find themselves in the middle of a villainous plot. The world is really interesting, too, with shifters, magic, mages, and so much more.

Rejected by those who should love them most, Zoe and Devlin both live lonely lives. Devlin is one of three immortal wolf shifters who live solitary lives outside of the packs. He is a judge, jury, and executioner for the shifters, and he lives a solitary and lonely existence. Zoe is a human who was given up by her biological parents and raised in foster care. She has some acquaintances but no real friends or family. The first couple of times she runs into Devlin, Zoe worries he is a stalker, but she also feels strangely safe with him. They are such well-developed characters, and they’re so easy to root for.

Zoe is strong, and I love how she faces challenges head-on, even though she’s been thrust into the paranormal world and is totally out of her element. And Devlin is super protective and fierce but also so tender and thoughtful. The pair has amazing chemistry, and their romance is intense and steamy! I think it feels even more intense because of the high-stakes, deadly danger they’re put in and the fact that they’re fated mates. However, their connection is questioned when they learn that there’s a possibility magic may have influenced their bond. I’m curious to see how this concept plays out in future books in the series.

I thought this was an entertaining start to Walters’s new series, and I’m eager to read the next book, especially because it seems like there’s going to be an over-arching plot, and there are questions that need answers and villains that need catching. Plus, it will probably focus on one of the other wolf shifters, and they both sound really intriguing.

Thanks to Entangled Publishing for providing me with a copy of the book. All thoughts are my own.
