Wolf Bond
Author: Mina Carter
Reviewer: B.
Rating: B+, 3.5 Stars

What I’m Talking About:

One of my favorite things about the 1Night Stand series is that each story is designed to tell a whole story in one sitting. Wolf Bond does just that while trying to cover a lot of territory. It is at once a shifter story, but also includes the military, lost loves, deceit, and revenge. While the connection between Barrett and Saxon was very sweet, and their sexy reunion was definitely enjoyable to read, the story as a whole might have benefitted from a little extra breathing room for all the elements to come together more smoothly. Still, this is a fun story that moves fast with main characters that are easy to cheer for.

The 1Night Stand series is an impressive undertaking, bringing many different authors and interests together in one place, and offering quick, erotic shorts that are just the thing when reading time is limited. Wolf Bond fits those requirements perfectly, tying everything together in a happy ending worthy of its two heroes. In fact, the characters are some of the strongest points of the story, and the brief glimpse Ms. Carter gives us of the rest of the band in the beginning of Wolf Bond has made me extremely curious to know what else she might have in store for this series, and I hope to see more of them soon.

3.5 stars: Liked it – recommend (B+)


About the Book:

Barrett Simmons, head of security for the famous rock band, Lyric Hounds, has managed to avoid the band members’ less-than-subtle matchmaking attempts. Since the woman he loved was killed in action, his heart has been as dry and dusty as the sands she fell on. He doesn’t want to date, in fact he can’t think of anything worse. But he didn’t count on his sister, Melody, making a call to Madame Eve….

A car crash to two years ago left werewolf Saxon Reeves with amnesia and nightmares—but the nightmares aren’t of the crash. Instead she dreams of a soldier. A human soldier she can’t get out of her head. When her family pushes her to mate with a wolf from a neighboring pack, she decides to take one night, just for herself, and contacts 1Night Stand.

The last thing she expects when she walks through the door is to come face to face with her soldier….
