First Bite by Dani Harper

Book Description:

Geneva “Neva” Ross doesn’t want to die. But now that she’s been turned into a werewolf against her will, she’ll do anything to protect her family and friends…even if that means taking her own life.
After witnessing Neva’s leap from a high ledge, Travis Williamson—a Changeling with a dark past—uses his powers to save her life. He feels a connection to the strong-willed woman whose eyes flash that familiar Changeling green. While Neva is hospitalized, Travis risks everything to kidnap her, knowing the approaching full moon will put everyone in jeopardy.
Bickering constantly to hide their growing attraction, Travis and Neva run from the authorities…and from Neva’s sinister sire, Meredith de la Ronde. Meredith delights in creating new shape-shifters and compelling them to do her dark bidding; now Neva must join Meredith’s murderous wolf pack…or die.
Intensely suspenseful with deliciously sexy twists, this paranormal romance—the first in (the title of series)—intertwines sensual passion with an epic, thrilling battle between good and evil.

My Thoughts:
This was a good paranormal book.  Neva is going to end her life.  She has to because she cannot become the monster she knows is inside of her.  Travis witnesses Neva's attempt and saves her (much to her dismay).  Not only that but he comes back to help her again and again.  Their attraction is growing as Travis shows her the ropes of being a Changeling, but there is something dark chasing Neva that neither of them are prepared to face.
I liked Travis.  He has a past and isn't a typical Changeling, but is still a good guy.  Neva's reaction to being a 'werewolf' in the beginning doesn't make sense but I enjoyed how the story unfolded.  I despised Meredith, but loved the twists throughout the book.  Leaving the ending hanging was not what I would have liked but I do hope the author writes the next in this series quickly.
I rate this one a 4/5.  I am more than ready to see how the rest of this story plays out.

Thank you to the author/publisher for the review copy of this book (via netgalley).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
