Book CoverAsh’s review of Savage Awakening (Alpha Pack Series, Book 2) by J. D. Tyler
Paranormal romance released by Signet Eclipse 03 Apr 12

You know, I am not really sure what to write. This book is just another average paranormal romance. I got a little more than halfway through and I just didn’t care anymore. I was also constantly being reminded of other paranormals I have already read.  I did finish it, but I skimmed a lot.

At first I liked Aric. He is the cocky, confidant one who has a soft heart hidden within. He goes through torture at the beginning of the book, since he is being held captive. I thought that there would be at least some angst or issues because of it, but once he’s freed, it’s like it never happened. Why bother putting him through that if it doesn’t really have any role? It gives him a reason to be mad at Jax, sure, but even that feels forced. Like the conflicts are there just for the sake of having conflict. Everything feels fake to me. Even the romance.

Rowen is…okay. I never clicked with her. That is probably because we never really learn who she is outside of the book and when she is at home. I have no idea what she does, except sleep with Aric and fight the bad guys with them. I don’t know her, so I can’t like or not like her.

The plot is nothing new, it’s been done before in a thousand different ways. Most of the characters are the same. They don’t stand alone, with the exception of Kalen. He is the only one who I find interesting, and his book is next. Since it’s his story, I will read it. I just don’t know if I will bother reading anything past it.

When the Alpha team goes into full-rescue mode, accompanying them is an absolute stunner with sable hair–and a spine of solid steel.LAPD officer and Psy Dreamwalker Rowan Chase has one priority: her brother Micah’s recovery. Still, she can’t help but be drawn to Aric, the ruggedly handsome wolf shifter who pleasures her as no man ever has–however fleeting their affair is destined to be. But when Aric’s life is endangered, Rowan must ask herself what she’s willing to sacrifice in the name of love, for the man fated to be her Bondmate.
