Review- Deadly Crush (Deadly Trilogy #1)

Deadly Crush
Deadly Trilogy #1
by Ashley Stoyamoff
Rating: 5/5
Summary
Dog Mountain is just like any other small town — peaceful and uneventful. Well, that is if peaceful means wolves howling all night, and uneventful means it’s overrun by pesky werewolves, then yes, Dog Mountain is just your average small town.

Jade Shaw has spent the last two years avoiding the pack. But when Aidan Collins moves to town, avoiding the dogs doesn’t seem possible. The pack wants him just as much as she does.

Determined to keep him out of the pack’s grasp, Jade does everything she can to gain his attention. Little does she know, Aidan is in deeper with the pack than she could have imagined, and competing for his attention is a deadly game, one she may not want to win.

My Review

**I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review**
Okay wow this book is perfect. I'm a huge werewolf fan and because of that I can be very critical, for me as a fan I have high expectations and I also have a few things I feel are essential for a werewolf tale. This book meet all my expectations and included every essential and then some. I want the town of Dog Mountain to be real and I want so badly to move there. Wouldn't hurt if I met myself a buff, beautiful werewolf to be be my mate :) Yes I'm a nerd but if any supernatural were to exist I wish it would be werewolves and I also secretly (well not so much anymore) wish I could become one. Okay enough about me lets get back to this amazing book.

The writing was so realistic I felt like it was happening to me. The pace was great kept the book engaging and it was also full of beautiful descriptions and dialog. I loved the picture that was painted when characters shifted to wolf form, it felt real and I loved every second of it, it helped me imagine my dream come true lol. The layers of conflict were blended perfectly keeping me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I don't just want to know what happens to these characters I NEED to know, I could not believe this book came to an end and I feel a little sad that it's over, I wanted to live in the pages of this book forever.

Now I must confess to my giant girl crush on Jade, I want to be her she is smart, strong, and determined maybe a bit stubborn and able to hold a bit of a grudge but hey no one is perfect. I was drawn to her right away and getting Aidan's point of view and seeing her through his eyes made me love her even more. I loved her confidence she knew who she was and who she wanted to be, and even when her world is thrown into a tail spin she finds her purpose and is quick to stand up for what she knows is right...even is there are consequences. Not only all that but she sure makes a kick ass werewolf.

Aidan, oh what can I say about Aidan, I hope men like him exist in the real world. I loved getting his point of view on the whole thing. Most of all the I enjoyed his fierce love for Jade that can only come with being part wolf. I think that by far has always been my favorite part of werewolf stories, funny because it's the thing that bugged Jade the most, but I have always loved the protective love they feel when the inner wolf claims a mate. I was so glad that it was an aspect of the story. I will forever be rooting for Aidan and Jade's happy ending. I am officially I huge fan and I think everyone should read this if you don't love werewolves now read this and you will.
