Alrighty then, let's get back on track.
This was a great read! I sat and read the whole thing on my phone in one sitting because I couldn't wait to pull it up on my laptop (Thank you still broken Kindle -_-) and I didn't regret a second of it!
Jack is the bad boy cousin of Emmy's ex boyfriend and while he's a total jerk, it's alway the jerky bikers that gets the girls going. And man, does Jack get the girls going! While he may seem like a jerk on the outside we definitely get to see his softer sides. Jack wants nothing to do with Emmy and honestly, she doesn't want anything to do with him either. Her heart still pretty much aches for her ex boyfriend Zack. But as times go by, things get weirder and weirder, Emmy is pulled into something a little more than she thought was possible. And what a wild ride!
I loved how I forgot this was supposed to be a werewolf book, Van Fleet flowed in all together beautifully. As a huge fan of supernatural, I was beyond excited that recalling "Oh yeah!/Duhhh" moment when the werewolves came in and we got to learn a little about them. Every author sees their supernatural creatures a little bit differently and it's always fun to see how they're portrayed. In Resisting Fate, when wolves mate they mate for life and if their mate dies life is unbearable for them. This is going to put everyone in a sticky situation, mating is not taken lightly nor should it. But then again, these are always the love stories readers drool over!
I appreciate Van Fleet's character dialogue. A lot of young adult authors like to censure their dialogue but come on, what teenager doesn't curse at least sometimes these days. It seems a lot more realistic to me and it keep the story flowing. Both Emmy and Jack can be pretty sarcastic and witty and it's always an interesting conversation between the two of them.
I can't wait for the next book and I hope that once you read this, you will too!
