REVIEW: Trust (Running With Alphas #1) by Viola Rivard

Just when she thinks her life can’t get any worse, Taylor meets alpha wolf Alder – the most caring, gallant, and handsome man on the planet. On the run from the police, there’s no way she could possibly get involved with him. But somehow she does anyway.

Alder seems to be convinced that the two of them are going to live happily ever after in his mountain territory. But between looming pack wars, her dicey past, and his twin brother – the most obnoxious, sadistic, and handsome man on the planet – Taylor has a feeling that her new life among werewolves may be just as complicated as her human one.

I like the writing style. The way Viola Rivard uses her words is really nice. I liked the premise of the werewolves living in an actual den – a full on cave. But that’s it. Sorry! I wanted to like it. Truly I did but that didn’t happen.

I didn’t like it mainly because of some of the themes we see in way too many novels. For example, the virgin. We don’t see too many of them in real life and when we do they don’t let go of it real easy. This is like so many other novels where the girl is a virgin, meets the hottest dude EVA and then hands over her V-card really easy. Wam bam thank you ma’am.

Another thing I didn’t care for was Alder’s super possessiveness with Taylor. Sure, he’s a wolf. Sure, he’s an alpha but he was cool with running from the law and taking her on as his mate right from the get-go. He’s also very neandertal about Taylor. It doesn’t help that he takes her back to his cave…

I tried. I’m sure there are plenty of people out there that will love this but it just wasn’t for me. The average rating on Goodreads is 4.04 stars. So if you want to try it out. Then go for it. Hopefully you’ll enjoy it more than me.
