This is the second book in the series by Elle Boon. I enjoyed this story. I was happy that Niall had the opportunity to find his mate a second time. Alaina was an interesting character too. Along with trying to find her memory, she had to find out who she was and where she fit in. I thought it was funny how everyone within the Pack knew that Alaina was Niall's mate but him because he fought what was in his heart. I recommend this book by Elle Boon.
