It’s been a long time since I’ve read anything having to do with vampires or werewolves, but I knew I wanted to read this the moment Ali Hazelwood shared the synopsis. Bride lived up to every bit of hype and all my expectations! I will say the beginning of the story was a bit slow moving as Hazelwood set the scene and introduced us to the characters. Around 40% the pace picks up and I basically devoured the rest of the book. I absolutely loved Misery. She’s strong and yet a bit vulnerable as she ends up aligned with Lowe. And each chapter has a little glimpse of Lowe’s perspective which is just *chef’s kiss*. Ali Hazelhood hit it out of the park (again) with this one!
ABOUT THE BOOK
A dangerous alliance between a Vampyre bride and an Alpha Werewolf becomes a love deep enough to sink your teeth into in this new paranormal romance from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Love, Theoretically and The Love Hypothesis.
Misery Lark, the only daughter of the most powerful Vampyre councilman of the Southwest, is an outcast—again. Her days of living in anonymity among the Humans are over: she has been called upon to uphold a historic peacekeeping alliance between the Vampyres and their mortal enemies, the Weres, and she sees little choice but to surrender herself in the exchange—again…
Weres are ruthless and unpredictable, and their Alpha, Lowe Moreland, is no exception. He rules his pack with absolute authority, but not without justice. And, unlike the Vampyre Council, not without feeling. It’s clear from the way he tracks Misery’s every movement that he doesn’t trust her. If only he knew how right he was….
Because Misery has her own reasons to agree to this marriage of convenience, reasons that have nothing to do with politics or alliances, and everything to do with the only thing she’s ever cared about. And she is willing to do whatever it takes to get back what’s hers, even if it means a life alone in Were territory…alone with the wolf.
