Review: Pretty Poison by Kari Gregg
Deadly poison... or exquisite cure?
Noah fell from an eighth story balcony as a toddler, cracking open his skull and shattering his body. The accident would've killed a human, but even shifter blood can't heal some damage. After the pack recommended a mercy killing, Noah's family ran. But there's no outrunning the mating pact formed before Noah's birth.
Wade, the new alpha, chooses an adult Noah to fulfill the pact. Wade believes the previous alpha was a fool to reject Noah as a weak and inferior wolf, but Noah's family was wrong to hide him and starve his wolf, too. Human doctors with human medicines are poison to shifter physiology. Now that Noah is fully grown, halting his shift to retain the pins, plates and bars holding him together hurts rather than helps him, and for Wade, more than Noah's recovery is at stake.
Noah's family sacrifice everything to keep him alive. Noah will do whatever it takes to save them-including mate with the alpha who is determined to correct past mistakes and defeat old prejudices contaminating the shifter community.
Too bad some still believe Noah is the true poison...and should be culled from the pack for good.
Content Warnings: Dubious consent, shifter knotting/tying, and Nerf gun assassination attempts. Ereaders (and you) may spontaneously combust --Don't say I didn't warn you.
**I received this book free for review from the author through the DMBL (Don't Buy My Love) Program in the M/M Romance Group on Goodreads. **
This was definitely a different shifter story. I loved Wade and Noah, they were so good for each other in many ways. The sexy was hot and spicy the only thing they lacked was communication. Oh and much to my surprise this had an MPreg theme! Yes I was totally on board once I realized that!
Wade is the alpha of the pack and Noah hasn't been a pack member since he was injured as a very young child. Their views are different and it takes them working together and a lot of understanding on both their parts for them to overcome.
I loved this story and the writing was fantastic. I will definitely be looking for more books by Kari Gregg very soon!
