Wow! To say I love the heroes and hate the villians would be an understatement. Great characters and an even better plot! A warning – there is a sexual assault. It doesn’t go into detail , but the aftermath is still difficult to read. The author isn’t scared of putting her characters in difficult circumstances. I look forward to reading more in this series!

Lily and Jason have a dramatic, suspenseful yet romantic story on their journey to a happy ending. True to the wolf world Jason finds Lily to be his mate and the possessive/protective nature come out full force for his newfound love. Lily being a human and servant has the odds against her but as her she adjusts to her new life with her new love she finds her voice and her strength. This was a good read that is a very fun play into the paranormal wolf world and I look forward to book 2.

What a series opener!! Treachery, scheming, infighting, and deceit….and that is just with one family!! A kickass heroine that is only getting badder! I was so happy to see that Jason didn’t fight or deny the mate bond. I am enjoying the way that Lily is coming into herself, getting stronger, willing to be strong for others, and not willing to take crap from others especially the King. I can’t wait for the next books as there are so many promises that Jason has to keep, so many changes he wants to make!

This story is about learning your value and discovering the inner strength we all possess. The romance is just a bonus. Lily’s evolution, even Jason’s, is one from which we all can learn.

I’m torn. I love wolf shifters books. This one though I’m not sure how I feel. I don’t care for the abuse and rape aspect of it. I did enjoy the new found wolf experience.
I understand that a lot of times these books are always a mismatch when it comes to mates but Claiming My Mate pushes a lot of boundaries that could be triggers for some.
Lily, a kidnapped human, forced into becoming a servant for the royal family. Though she’s a servant she’s very defiant with a very strong personality.
Jason, the essential crowned prince of the pack, next in line for alpha. Little does he know his mate will be found under his own roof.
I do like how the author wrote Jason is very kind, sympathetic, strong everything you want in a future leader. His development throughout was a shining light on a book I was struggling with at times.
If you like servant/master romances check it out, you should enjoy it. If you’re like me and enjoy shifter romances, go into this book with an open mind before making a decision.

Claiming My Mate (Wolf Hollow Pack Book 1) by Nicole Howl. This is my first read by this author and its the first book in the Wolf Hollow Pack series. This isn’t my favorite genre but I truly enjoyed this book. Its a young adult, paranormal book with werewolves, shifters, and romance all in the middle of young adult problems. Its a quick read and once you start you won’t want to put it down. Its the story of Lily who serves the royal wolf pack family as a “slave”. Jason is a Prince and when he picks up Lily’s scent when she has cleaned his room he wants to find her. There is also a member of the Royal Guard who is interested in her and will have her one way or another. Jason is kind, helpful and everything you want a Prince to be but Lily is stuck between a rock and hard place as a slave because she really has no say. Lily would love to be with Jason but feels her place in life will never allow it. There are some hard scenes to read so be prepared!

Claiming My Mate was a great short read. I haven’t read a shifter book in quite a while and this one reminded me how much I enjoy them. I can’t wait to read the second book… especially because of that ending! I really loved Lily, she is such a strong fighter. Also… Jason… *swoon* need I say more? I highly recommended if you’re looking for a good shifter romance.

Claiming My Mate: A forbidden-lovers romance (Wolf Hollow Pack #1) by Nicole Howl

This is the first book I’ve read by the author. The author knows how to draw a reader’s attention and keep it. I really can’t wait for book two of the Wolf Hollow Pack series.

Lily is nothing, but a servant to the Royals. She’s beaten, raped, and tortured by one of the guards. She’s also bitten which causes her to turn. She also has to deal with the Prince who is claiming her as his mate. The quote I chose for Lily is: “I didn’t ask to be a she-wolf. I never wanted this! I didn’t ask to be a slave. I didn’t ask for Callum to rape me. I didn’t ask to be beaten and starved and thrown in the dungeons. I didn’t ask to be mated to the Prince of Wolf Hollow, soon to be the Alpha of ALL the f***ing wolves. I didn’t ask for the current Alpha to take an interest in me. I just wanted to be a normal f***ing girl! I just wanted a normal f***ing life! Is that too much to ask for? Is that too much to want? There has to be something that I did to deserve this. Did I do something in a past life? Why does Leto hate me so much? She’s supposed to be a f***ing Goddess, for crying out loud! What did I ever do to her?”

Jason is the Prince and future Alpha of the Hollow Wolf Pack. He finds his mate and then finds himself going against his father. He’s not one to give up easily and he will win the girl in the end, but it might cost him his life. The quote I chose for Jason is: “When I first realized he needed to go, I was too young. I wasn’t strong enough. Now? I’ve heard from the pack and those around us that they want the monarchy to change. They want a different system. If I were to challenge him, it would ruin their trust in me. They would rather me join their cause and change things slowly than challenging my father. This is their rodeo. I’m just a member.”

Highly recommended for Paranormal Werewolf lovers.

This story was fantastic! I’m always down for a werewolf romance. This story has action and romance. Lily has been held hostage for the past year by the soon to be Alfa’s family. Jason the soon to be Alfa comes home ready to take over and change thing his father has done until he sees Lily. There are so many things and obstacles that keep coming at them two. It keeps on turning the page to find out what happens next. I cannot wait for book two!

This is the first book in the Wolf Hollow Pack series. I was so engaged in this story that it was over before I knew it. Jason will be the alpha after his father. He knows that is his place. Lily has been held captive by the royal family for the last year. All she wants is to do what she must to get by. That is until she meets Jason. Then her world is turned upside down. I can’t wait to dive more into this series.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Jason is the sun of the alpha king of the Wolf Hollow Pack.
Lily is a captured human slave that works in the castle.
“She’s more. Go after her.” Jason’s wolf urges as soon as they come into contact.

This book was exhilerating to read and was way too short for me because I just want to know what happens next!! The turning of the page happened without my notice I was so engrossed in the events that Lily had stumbled into; and before I knew it, I was at 100% read and could no longer continue. This book does contain some triggers of sexual and physical abuse, but it is not overly descriptive nor does it take away from the story.
I really enjoyed the characters of Jason, Lily and their close friends. I’ve read so many shifter novels over the years and the different takes on packs and shifter etiquette fill my mind with so much imagination.  I was not let down with this book as it had everything I was looking for with quite a bit of originality.
