Bitten by Kelley Armstrong

Summary: Ever since her parents were killed in a car accident when she was five, Elena Michaels has longed for a normal family life. Smart, beautiful, and engaged to be married, Elena hopes to fulfill that dream when disaster strikes. Not only has her fiancé lied about his secret life as a werewolf, but he's made her one, too. She has no choice but to join him at Stonehaven, the upstate New York home of an elite pack of werewolves.

In an attempt to break away, she moves to Toronto to lead a normal life. Working as a journalist, Elena now lives with her new architect boyfriend, works out in the basement gym of their high-rise apartment, lunches with girlfriends from the office, and —once a week, at four in the morning —runs naked and furred through a downtown Toronto ravine, ripping out the throats of her animal prey. But when a band of outlaw werewolves threatens the Stonehaven pack, Elena's feral instincts drive her back there to join the defense. What follows is a war for territory, for pride, and ultimately for Elena herself.

Review: Why did it take me this long to read this book? It has been sitting on my shelf for months and I never had any strong urge to read it even though I loved Kelley's Darkest Power books. Well this book was pretty darn good. I honestly probably would have enjoyed it more if I had not read it at the end of my Urban Fantasy/Romance run because I was pretty burned out at that point. That was probably why it took me a week to actually finish it. Well that plus school. Anyways I liked Elena a lot. She was pretty good. My only problem with her was that she could not let Clay off the hook for his moment of stupidity. I would be more sympathetic if it had recently happened, but it was years ago. I liked Clay and Jeremy, but I think I liked Jer more. I was kinda pissed that Kelley killed off the character who was most likely to be my favorite. That always happens. *pout* I'm very excited to read the rest of this series if I ever get the other books.
