It was good, it wasn't great but still Kristen is great. Callum was hot, but his ways sometimes were i don't know, didn't feel great about them but at the end i loved him. Sonia was sometimes so stubborn that i wanted to smack her in the head. I can't wait to read the next so that we can finally find out everything that's supposed to happen and everybody's real role there and how everyone will find their HEA....

For some reason I held off reading this series because of the supernatural theme which is generally not a favorite of mine. Boy, what a mistake. This is one of my favorite of all Kristen Ashley's books. The wolf portions really work with KA's alpha male style. It's a stand-alone book but I am really looking forward to the final book in the series about the third couple.

The book was okay the idea of the book was nice it was refreshing take on the old good vs evil.
I like the way the book includes the character of the last book into this book. I just wish the characters were a little bit more dimensional so they could come to life more.
but overall a good summer read.

I've never been a paranormal fan but KA knows exactly how to suck you into a story. This one has a deep twist that will make you cry at the end but there is a HEA. Callus can be arrogant but that's his people's way. Sonia is living on her own after her parents died. Her only two relatives are vamps who promised to protect her. She has no clue any of this until later in the book. Love the romance that flares between these two.

Wonderful descriptions and great details given about the characters and the settings. Great snarky humor on Sonia part and a great description of Callum. Couldn't wait to see if I guessed right. Can't wait for the final book.

This is a great read! I like the fact that the " mated" couple met when she was 7 yrs old and he was much much older. I also liked how the plot was played out between werewolf " wolf" and human. Who but KA could have pulled this kind of story off. Beautifully written and beautifully told through the eyes of a GREAT Author.

Once again Kristen Ashley has hit a home run. This book made me laugh, cry, get pissed off and made me fall in love with Callum and Sonia's love story over and over again. Lots of times I wasn't sure there would be a HEA but it was well worth the wait. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

*Solid 4.5 Stars*

I must say this was the KA fix I needed. And it came right on time. Who would have thought that my salvation would come from a series that started in hell for me. But hey, as you can see I am not complaining.

Callum, King of the Werewolves. This man has my heart. He has possessed my very soul. One so frustrating and caring at once will have you going insane. But it's worth it. Read him and you will see what I'm talking about. What this man feels, what he wants, and how he goes about getting his way in all things is just... There are no words.
But the love from within that ultimately brings him to his knees, is what makes him the Ultimate Alpha Male. (Yes, I'm blushin)

Sonia, the yin to his yang. Across the board. Even when she has you wanting to pull her hair out for her. (Thank God this isn't often) I love that in the midst of her fear, confusion, and heartache she still exudes this quiet strength. And it's so powerful so undeniable and yet so incredibly sweet it breaks your heart.

What these two endure together & apart is nothing short of amazing. Heartbreaking. Scared the heck outta me! It's been a minute since I've cried, screamed jumped up and down and done everything else inbetween while reading a book. I mean there were parts in this story that literally had me running from my kindle. I LOVE this story.
Even the moments that had me like... "WTHECK is going on?!"

It all comes out in the wash. And what an amazing clean it became.

And that intro that will be leading us into book 3? OMGOODNESS!! Has me on edge & I can't wait for it.

I would say read this series in order, but I hate recommending the 1st book "Until the Sun Falls from the Sky" cos it was just horrible to me.
But if you're a stickler for that kinda thing, which sometimes I am, I would say read book one first. But then again if you read this book 1st I don't think you will be confused about anything. The decision is yours. But if you come across this review after book 3 comes out, definitely read this book 1st!

I really don't want to ruin anything for you concerning this book. Trust me. A journey and reveal have never been more crucial to a story.
This one has everything in it. The icing is it happens to be a paranormal romance as well. And one that KA did an awesome job with.

It's sexy, sensual, decadent, erotic, consuming, passionate, sweet, emotional, scary, intense... And it's waiting for you to pick it up.

Happy Reading;)

I liked the first book, and I adored this one. The characters in this one touched me more than the last. This paranormal book clicked better than the last. Calling is a true alpha every sense. Sonia is compassionate and generous. Together they make the perfect pair.

Another 5 star read from Kristen Ashley!

I was right, I predicted that I'd dislike Callum a whole lot before he grew on me and boy, was he a flawed hero. He's like all of KA's men - gorgeous, alpha, bossy, more than hot in the sack, straight talker. But this also means that he sometimes assume he knows what's going on with Sonia based on how he'd react but it turns out he has no clue whatsoever. Which is when the angst and drama erupts on the page.

Sonia - I didn't get her at first cos she seemed a little subdued. As the book progressed however, you find out that she's strong, compassionate, all about tradition (in a good way) and is so head over heels with Callum. It sometimes feels as if she's way too good to Callum compared to how he is with her.

I confess, I was a little afraid that the story would have really serious heart-wrenching scenes because sometimes the dialogue pointed in this direction. There were only a few mildly teary scenes. Phew.

There was an almost abundance of sex in the book. I think on one page, the following line appeared maybe 5 times - "And he took her again" LOL At the end, I was like "What???!" :)

I also liked that Lucian and Leah from Until the Sun Falls from the Sky made an appearance. But one character I'd like to see have his own story is Ryon ;) He sounded yummilicious and at the start of the book, I wished that Sonia could have ended up with him.

Love, love, love this book! Cannot wait for the next one in the series! And yes, Callum is in my Fictional Men Harem!

This story was too long. But I am such a huge fan of Kristen Ashley's that I had to read to the end. It was okay. I've never read her books on werewolves or vampires and so that was new for me. It's still a love story and I liked that. Not my favorite but then again "Motorcycle Man" being my favorite of her books you can't out do that.

There are a lot of reviews out there already that cover the territory I would have in my review so I am keeping this short. First, there isn't a lot of plot - this is mostly a character study of 2 people who are fated to be together but fail to communicate well because they come from different cultures. Misunderstanding after misunderstanding fuel this story and drive it to it's very long length. With so very little that actually happens, it could have been much shorter and tighter.

I didn't love Sonia - like Leah in the novel that precedes this, this is 30 something-ish woman behaving live a teenager. The Christmas fetish was annoying. Holding onto the death of her parents for 31 years as if it happened yesterday was not believable - I lost my dad 25 years ago, but as with all the curve balls life throws at you, you make peace with it and move on. Her willingness to believe the worst about Callum without any real kind of discussion was shocking - who wants a life partner who won't talk to you, no matter how great the sex?

Callum had all the aspects of a controlling jerk, but that was well explained by the world building, so I won't hold that against him. What I would hold against him is not finding out what was up with Sonia's injections - he's king of the werewolves - surely he has a power base that is stronger than his mother's. Even his cousin was more concerned than he was.

There was really only one sex scene, and that was replayed over and over. I skipped them as the book ground on.

I will read the next one because, despite the flaws, the book was OK, and I'd like to see where the prophecies go. I haven't read much KA, but I have yet to read anything by her that is more than a 3 star read, so I'm not really disappointed.
★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆
2.5 stars really for me. I gave 4 stars to the previous book in the series even if it had many flaws and a lot of grammar and spelling mistakes (same as this one) but, I don't know, I found it really entertaining in spite of its many flaws mainly because I loved the main female character.

Not this one. This book felt too long and I didn't like the characters. Sonia, the female protagonist, was bland and quite weak, I never felt conected to her. But the worst for me was Callum, the male protagonist, he is a total jerk!!

I love strong alpha males in my reads (even if I could never stand the type in real life), and sometimes they act kind of jerkish and overbearing and that's ok for me, but Callum was totally over the top! He treated her as if she was a property to the point that I couldn't enjoy the story as I was angry + mad at both of them all the time (him for his attitude and her for consenting it). And what bothered me the most was that every once in a while he will be nice to her and suddenly she was the one at fault for she was being to selfish and too self centered and didn't understand his many occupations and worries which, of course, made all his jerkinesh totally acceptable. Awful!

Also there are many facts that don't add up, as for example the fact that while Sonia doesn't know of the exisence of supernaturals she is called human all the time by everibody and she not even once asks about it, not even to herself. Really?

About the sex scenes, they were steamy in the first book (even if a bit repetitive) but in this book, as they are almost identical every time, they lost all their appeal.

I'm not happy to say that I won't be purchasing neither reading the last book in the series as I've lost all my interest.

I am a HUGE Kristen Ashley fan. And she does not disappoint with this new book. If you like super-natural, this is a good read. If you like romance, this is a great one. And if you like happily ever afters, she's an author you'll want to try. This is the second book in the three series, and I CAN'T WAIT for the next one!

Just finished reading this book and I must say it had me from the very first page! I love pretty much all paranormal stories so I was excited when this book was released. What I didn't expect was the heavy emotional impact this story would bring. All Kristen Ashley books have drama, humor, rich dialogue, stunning discriptive narratives of the people and places involved but so far none have had me wrapped up in emotion as this one did. Sonia and Callum's story was intense and I liked how Leah and Lucien were also brought into it. There is a lot to digest in this book so even though you could read it as a stand alone I would seriously suggest you read Until the Sun Falls from the Sky first. Once again KA delivers a over the top Alpha male that made me go from not liking him so much to loving him by the end! Sonia was I think one of the most vulnerable women I have seen written into one of KA's stories. Lonely, confused, gentle, but also with a quite strength that always pulled her through. I will caution readers as always, if you don't like a lot of sex in your stories this might not be for you. I loved it! It ticked all the right boxes for me in what a good story should have and I can't wait for the next book in this series to come out!!!

I loved this book! I never thought I would ever enjoy a paranormal series but Kristen Ashley has convinced me otherwise. I loved all of the characters. I loved the storyline. I loved this book! Great read that I could not put down.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Seriously I did not get some of the other reviews and its irritating because if your like me it can deter you from reading a banging book like this. I loved this book maybe even more than Lucien and Leah's story. Everyone was going on about what a jerk he was but seriously I didn't see it...the point was he had a lot to learn from Sonia about love and paying attention to your partners feelings. Despite this he always loved he fiercely maybe outwardly more than her at times because she was blinded by misunderstanding. Which by the way that in this book was spread throughout with a heavy hand but their story is not tortured making it sweeter and more beautiful. But Cal was just amazing and his evolution as a character was so wonderful, I loved how he accepted her culture as she did his and it changed him for the better. Back to Sonia, other reviews stated she was self centered and immature...what?!?...totally wrong...she was such a beautiful character and I get her pain and reasons for being withdrawn. She was thrown into this life totally clueless and falls in love but thinks Callum is acting on duty and doesn't even care for her as she does. Yeah that would be pretty flipping devastating and I might not be totally lovely dovey with him either. But she showed such maturity as a queen with his people and took everything else in stride. So i don't get what book those people read I couldn't put it down another home run for one of my fave authors. I cannot wait for Book 3!!!

I am a big KA fan...huge! I enjoy her books because they're really fun and sexy. I gave this book 4 out 5 stars because although a great read, it's not her best. But I do highly recommend reading because it's 400+ pages of fun and sexy for 3.99-that's all good with me!

I'm also a big paranormal romance fan but this is my first paranormal by KA and like her other books, i really enjoyed it. It was good to get the hero's perspective as well, albeit dizzying in logic at times. Having read KA's other books, I know they tend to be longer than the standard 300ish page rom book(another reviewer complained about the length) and the endings are usually not quickly wrapped up BUT I really think that is because the author tries to give each character a mini epilogue, knowing the reader would like to know what happens to the characters and this is actually something I've always appreciated about KA. It indicates to me that she really cares about her readers and tries to see things from the readers' pt. of view.

With Everything I Am

Right from the beginning I was hooked, the idea of a wolf (Callum) meeting his
destined mate while she was still a child (Sonia). No ordinary child, one with special abilities
heightened senses; hearing, smell, vision and a connection to animals.
She learned to hide those abilities at an early age as others saw her as "weird".

Fast forward some 31 years and the time has come for King Callum to claim his Queen (Sonia).
The courtship between Callum and Sonia was at times funny and then heartwarming.

"You're mine, Sonia Arlington. You've been mine for centuries.
You have a week...one week...to get to know me and understand my culture."

And so she did, but she could have never imagined his culture was "wolf"!
They shared a hot and steamy relationship and then something happened...

This book got under my skin. The story was so beautifully written I had
to remind myself I was reading a wolf tale!

This series is beyond my imagination. I have read and loved all of Kristen Ashley's books. She proves with this series that true love exists in more shapes and sizes than I can imagine. And in every shape and size - true love is beautiful!!

Wolves. Hot and sexy wolves. Throw in the Scottish accents, alpha male testosterone overload, and some serious prophecy mojo and mix with romance you'll forget all about Jacob and the Twilight wolfy boys. Loved it!
★ ★ ☆ ☆ ☆
This has got to be hands down one of THE MOST FRUSTRATING books I've ever read. As a member of my book club would say, the heroine was COMPLETELY beaten over with the vanilla ninny stick. Like so hard. Super hard.

I understand that the norm for romance novels is that there is a misunderstanding between the love interests and said misunderstanding stands in their way of a HAE but the misunderstanding on Sonia's behalf is so so frustrating and easily solved if she would have only opened her mouth and voiced her concerns. As a member of my book club would say, the heroine was completely beaten over with the vanilla ninny stick. Like so hard. Super hard.

The only pro this book had for me was the sex. Omg beyond steamy.

However I like my heroines with a backbone so overall this was a huge no for me.

There are simply not enough words in the English language to describe how frustrating (and not in the good sexy times kind of way) I found this book.

p.s.-this is the third time I've tried posting this review, I have removed all swear words (there were some) if the store doesn't post it now I will be very shouty caps.

Have you ever noticed in some kristens books there is alot of rambling??? WELL I DON'TCARE! Ramble away when you give a sexy alpha male such as Cal. A beautiful love story that gives you the ups with the downs. The downs which you will never see coming and the ups that take your breath away. This book will piss you off, you will laugh and you will cry. In the end it's all worth it. NAILED IT yet again with this book.

I have read I think 9 of Kristen Ashley's books, and it might be that I just read it (I don't think so) but this is my favorite! This is saying a lot since she is my favorite author. She is a writing mastermind!

I really enjoyed this book - I haven't read the first in this series yet, but I'm definitely going to read the third (about hybrids). I admit it did drag on a bit (tons of explicit loving), but I liked the banter between Callum and Sonia, and I'm a sucker for a good werewolf book!

There are some great things about this book and I love the premise behind the series and can't wait to read the next one but this was really long, and it felt like the love scenes were repetitive and lost a little of their glow. In fact the love scenes appear to be there to give length to the word count.

I am torn because it is a good book and the writing style is excellent, easy to read and great flow. However I also question the use of baby doll to such an extent, it's almost demeaning not to Sonia as much as to Callum. It makes him sound stupid and superficial when the story and his part in it, is so much more.

The other thing was the discussion on how werewolves try to pick unique names as they don't have surnames. Really, then why Callum and Caleb? Or does the name thing not apply to the royals. A small thing I know but it grates a little as this book is better than that.

Despite all that I enjoyed it immensely as the plot is quite clever and well developed. The sex is hot and there are some sweet scenes like the way he likes to sleep with her that adds a poignant tone to the werewolf as a whole race.
I look forward to the next one.

Normally, I read the reviews before I purchase a book, as I have been able to find several reviewers with the same taste in books as myself and love it when a new author is identified. With this book I didn't and was very happily surprised. In coming back to find out when the 3rd book would be released, I browsed the reviews and was very surprised that some readers didn't like the book. (Maybe I don't need to rely so heavily on the reviews?!) But also, I can't wait to read the next book written by Ms. Ashley, if this was one of the "not so good" books, then Holy Cow what have I been missing?!

There are some questions still not answered, (I can understand some of the comments by the other reviewers), but I loved the humor, originality, cast of characters, etc.

It was definitely worth the read! And I plan on re-reading it. I would definitely recommend this book!

Headed to buy the next book, by the same author and planning to enjoy it just as much! Happy Reading!!!!

I've read it over and over again! Probably my favorite KA book. She really nailed it and got you to get into Callum and Sonia's world, their heartaches, their troubles. I openly bawled at the end and am eagerly awaiting installment three. I. CANNOT. WAIT.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
The first thing that you should know is that I do not usually read paranormal or books in this vein (werewolf, vampire, etc) BUT I have read all of Kristen Ashley's books and LOVED them all - even this series and the ghost series.

She is my absolute favorite author and this book does not disappoint, I loved it. Ms Ashley has a gift of storytelling that creates such empathy and connection to her characters that I never want her books to end.

As usual this story grabs you from the first pages and takes you on a "roller coaster ride" of emotions and never lets you go. I can't wait for the next in this series and I am still anticipating the last of the Rock Chick Series.

Thanks KA for sharing your wonderful gift with us.

Callum! Wow!! He's a hot and sexy alpha male in the truest sense. KA never lets me down though I must say that this was not as good as the first book in this series. The story of Callum and Sonia is sweet, sexy, and seamy. I am looking forward to the third book in this series.

I do not believe that this book would have as many 4 and 5 star reviews if it did not have Kristen Ashley`s name attached to it. While I am a diehard fan of Ms. Ashley`s many genres, "With Everything I Am" is not an example of her best writing.

Sonia is too simplistic as a lead character. Other than her mysterious illness, there is nothing intriguing about her as a character. Like Leah in "Until the Sun Falls From the Sky", it is odd to have a female lead at 37 years of age behave in a way that is twenty years younger. I`m not sure why there is a need to infantilize Sonia. She is 5 ft 9 inches, and while I understand that this is three or four inches shorter than the average female werewolf, the overuse of "little" is bewildering. At 5`7", it has never crossed my mind to refer to friends at 5`3" as little. What we are left with is little Queeen Sonia who is loving to everyone. It`s just too shallow a portrait.

A major flaw in the book is Sonia`s lack of curiosity about Callum. Sonia is whisked away to her new life by Callum who refers to her repeatedly as "human" and there are many comments about his different culture. How odd, then, for her never ONCE to ask what HE is or what his culture is. It`s just not believable.

As king of the werewolves, Callum is a typical alpha-male. No problem with that. The strongest part of the book is when wolf culture is explained and how it contrasts with vampire society. We get a little taste of Callum as an action hero, but this is drowned out by his "baby doll" behaviour.

When Ms. Ashley is able to create such different plot lines, it is disappointing that her lead female characters all speak and act in a very similar fashion. Something extremely frustrating in this novel was is the overuse of parentheses. Sonia hates the food (but really loves it). She doesn`t like how Callum kisses her (but really loves it). We get it after the second time. Don`t hit the reader over the head with a hundred of these.

The premise of three different couples coming together to save the world is great. It is evident that Sonia and Leah are going to morph into stronger characters. It is just disappointing that they have to be so juvenile in the meantime.

The 3 Series is another great one from Kristen Ashley. She sucks you in and then you can't put the books down until your done with them. The alpha males are just like the ones in her other series. LOVE her books you can't go wrong with the The 3 Series, The Colorado Series and my Favorite "Mystery Man"

Every KA book ROCKS. My fav author. I just think she writes the best alpha men ever. She is not an erotic writer, but still the books are hot. And the women are the best. The Colorado series and Motorcycle Man are fantastic reads. Love 'em!
★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆
I enjoyed this novel more than the first in the series. I sometimes wish that if Kristen is going give her heroines such juvenile characteristics that she would make them younger. Then I could still love them but , be able to overlook those attributes by rationalizing that they just haven't had that essential life experience to draw from.

Love all KA books, and this one is no exception. I read Until the Sun Falls from the sky and really got into it and rushed to the store the minute this book hit. I read it in a couple days because i couldn't stop. Just like Lucien and Leah from Until the Sun Falls, Callum and Sonia are totally hot together. The push and pull, the misunderstandings, the fights and subsequent making up make for a wonderful, fantasy story. They love each other and are destined to be together and we get to witness the paths that they have to travel to get there. Steamy steamy scenes add to the passionate love story. Can't wait to see where we go with the third story. Please hurry Kristen, I can't wait to find out......Am NEVER ever disappointed with KA books and recommend her HIGHLY!!!!

Kristen has done it again! Another fantastic read, everything you look forward to in a Kristen Ashley book. A little mystery, a little suspense and a lot of romance, and it leaves you wanting more. Can't wait for the third book in this series.

I love Kristen Ashley books because of the strong alpha heroes she presents. This book doesn't disappoint in that aspect. Callum and Sonia are meant to be together and I liked the story a lot. This is the second book in a series and I can't wait for the third!

I love all of Kristen Ashley's books but her paranormal ones are extra special to me. I was actually reluctant to read the paranormal ones because I thought there was no way they could compare to her other ones that I loved so much such as Sweet Dreams. Well I've never been so happy to be wrong. I should have known that KA's writing is The Shit no matter what genre it's in. When I read her books it's like a movie being watched in my mind and with her Paranormal ones I always feel like there's a missing puzzle piece through out the story and in the end it all comes together. So not only does she give us the hot alpha male, the rockin heroine, awesome sex, romance, conflict, and the HEA but she also gives us a story that is in my opinion kind of complicated and involved. I mean it involves 3 different couples that are 3 different species (vamp, wolf, hybrid) and their lives are all entwined. Although each couple has their own book we still have to know about the others story to get the full picture. This series had to take some meticulous planning on KA's part in order to bring these 3 stories together and be able to make sense. Because this author cranks out all these spectacular books in every genre so close together(versus making us wait another year like some published authors have to)I think some of her readers forget that she isn't a machine...or is she??

I can relate to Sonia in this book. She's a human torn between having what she wants for her life which is a man who loves her for her with all her quirks and flaws and living the life that was planned for her before she was even born which includes mating with a man who isn't quite human who she believes is with her out of duty and not out love. He's bossy and controlling and she doesn't know if she should speak her mind on what her wishes are or keep quiet and not make additional problems for him because he already has so much on his shoulders. I like that Sonia takes her title as Queen serious and she earns the respect of the people and shows us why she was destined to stand by Callum's side(or should I say sit in his lap).

Now Callum seems like nothing but a womanizing, control freak but we get to read from his POV and we start to see why he is the way he is. We also get to see how Callum feels about the things Sonia says and does that makes him see her in certain ways. I can't stand when the hero just falls for a girl and she hasn't done anything special. I love that he calls Sonia baby doll and wherever he goes he wants her there. He is proud to be King and he isn't afraid to change the traditions that have been in place for generations if it means the better for his people and his queen.

I now have to add this book to the list of books that made me cry. I won't give the reason why you'll just have to read the book. KA made me care for the supporting characters and I hope to see what happens to them in future books. The end of this book gives you a glimpse of the characters for the next book. I can't wait till it comes out.

The shifter King finds his mate and of course shes.......human. She has no idea how to take this King business and spends 80% of the book not knowing what he is. Awkward.

I am very happy to see there is a major crossing of characters from the first book. Im giving it 5 stars because the writer is great. The book flowed excellently and it makes any book a great read. The female is a little naïve. But it adds humor to the stressful context of the plot.

Please make sure you read the first book, its also excellent!

Ok...This is why my friend told me you shouldn't start a series until all the books are out...this is killing me. Tell me book 3 comes out tomorrow. I also hope that The Three series only refers to the three prophesized couples and has nothing to do with the amount of books in the series, there has to be like 5 books. I want to see the couples kick some butt with their powers.

This book was great!!

Callum is the King of Werewolves. One night, while in wolf form, he is being hunted, he gets shot, and while running away he catches the scent of a young girl. He is immediately drawn to her, goes to her, and while face-to-face he is in shock to find out that she does not fear him. In fact, she protects him from the hunters. He knows that he has found his mate and he will not see her again until it is time to claim her...

"Come to your wolf, baby doll."

Years later, Sonia is a grown woman. She is being hunted by wolves that wish to hurt her and Callum comes to her rescue. He basically kidnaps her and tries to spend a week wooing her before taking his claim. The issue is, he is a wolf who has not spent a lot of time with humans. She doesn't know that immortals exist. He is awkward in his attempts to court her because he is a wolf and a king and he is used to getting his way.

When she starts acting like herself, she is fearless, caring, witty, a great heroine. She learns that Callum is not human but she doesn't know that he is the werewolf that she claimed as her own when she was a little girl. It is great though to experience them falling in love. They have so much passion between them,

"Assume the position," he ordered...

I would assume any position he wants....He is so HOT!!

They learn each other's culture, and it is sweet to see how they possess each other.

"My glorious queen, I told you we'd have a beautiful live, you and I."

He brings the real her out of her shell and she makes him a better king...

"...compassion is often mistaken for weakness when the fact is, there is very little that is more powerful than the courage it takes to give it...

He falls deeply in love with her...

"If I could have wished what I thought was my perfect mate on the wind and had her come back to me in a storm, I could never have come up with anything as exquisite as you."

There are so many secrets kept from Sonia and Callum. Sonia doesn't even know everything about the man that raised her or her disease.

HER DISEASE...ugh!! Sonia has a rare blood disorder that was inherited by her father and she has to take daily injections to get it under control. This makes her more frail in Callum's eyes. He needs to understand that she is human and even though he falls in love with her...he has fallen in love with a mortal human that will NOT live forever like he will. Even though he understands this...he still loves her, even human her.

"I loved you before you took your first breath on this earth because that was my fate but you made me love you because you're just...you."

"You love me?"

He answered without hesitation. "With everything I am, baby doll, and everything I meant to be."

The ending is awesome. I think that it is great that Leah and Lucian are in the book a bit. I LOVE LOVE the sneak peek into book 3!! I just love this series...Awesome Job Kristen.

Loved the book, after reading the reviews I was not sure about punching this book. However, I love Kristen Ashley's books and for the price I thought I would get it. As usual, I was not disappointed. Great book, I already pre-ordered the final book.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a great romance story with two extremely strong lead characters! It made me laugh and cry. It broke my heart and made it swell. It is a wonderful story!

This was book #2 of this series and all I can say is Kristen Ashley definitely did not disappoint. I'm not really into reading about werewolves, vampires, etc., but when they're characters from a Kristen Ashley book, well that's a different issue. I loved this story. Callum and Sonia were awesome. "I love you with everything I am, with everything I'm meant to be, baby doll. Always". Love, Love, Love this. Now I can't wait for book 3.

Ok so I was really reluctant to read this series. I am a huge KA fan but just wasn't feeling this series. However since I am addicted to pretty much all things Kristen Ashley when this book came out I decided to give it a try. Also werewolves are way better than vampires in my personal opinion so that was also a factor. :)All that said this was a good read. It is a strong KA novel with a sprinkle of the paranormal. The werewolf aspect gives it a new flavor and twist. I really enjoyed reading it. However if you are looking for a really good paranormal romance this is probably not the book for you. If you love KA though, it is a good bet you will love this book as well. All in all really glad I decided to read this book and am looking forward to the next book in this series.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
First, I'm glad that this book released a day early.

I read it and loved it! Kristen Ashley strikes again breaking the rules of the genre. I love that Callum and Sonia are fated mates but fated doesn't immediately mean happily ever after it means issues to work through and adjustments to be made. If you're a KA fan this book resembles Wildest Dreams in a way, with a heroine who has to adjust and understand a new culture. The communication issues are resolved in a realistic manner and when heartbreak arrives you genuinely fell it because KA knows how to write it.

I read lots and lots of authors but I'm a fangirl for only one and that's Kristen Ashley because she is an amazing storyteller and this is another amazing book. Read it then read every single book she's written because they are worth it!

I always read a few book reviews before buying a book, one to save money and time.Iam sssoooo happy I did not listen to the bad reviews people gave this series.I have always been a fan kristen ashley books but after reading a few reviews 50 % said that she was not very good at writing paranormal novels.What a load of crap, I thought the books were awesome and one of the best vampire/wolf books I have read in a long time.And I read alot.Well done kristen cant wait for the next book
★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
Up until this book I have LOVED ALL of Kristen's books - especially Part I to this saga.

However, I felt something in this story was missing...maybe it was that the werewolves came across as less romantic than all the other books I've read...I can't quite put my finger on it.

However, having said that, I will await "with bated breath" the third part of this rather charming tale.

And I will continue to purchase books by Kirsten Ashley.

Love, love, love this book. One of KA's Best IMO! Callum and Sonia are awesome. "I devoured it". No other way to explain the magical writing style of KA. She totally takes us to a new society that enchants us and astound us. I am not a fan of werewolf lore but after this book I am a true believer! Sonia, Is strong and lonely. She's misses her parents and a social life. Dreams about her "puppy" that introduces her to her "dream man" in her dreams. Has a cute farm and a little shop and (lots of money). Loves Christmas and throw's a big party. Still she is lonely. Has the ability to hear long distances and other heighted sensory powers. Because of this she feels like she never fit in. Callum is in the middle of a highly volatile altercation with his kind. He is King and wants to get the "Claiming" out of the way to a human woman. Who is blond (he doesn't' like blonds at all)
***SPOILER ALERT***Doing his duty he "claims" his queen without her knowledge. She thinks it is just "awesome sex" not realizing she becomes "married"...I love everything about this book, fast paced and riveting storyline. Bravo to KA!

I read this immediately after reading the first in this series and loved it. I really love all things Kristen Ashley. I can't wait for the third book in this series. As with the first in the series, this was my first werewolf book and first venture into paranormal. Seems Kristen Ashley can write in all genre's!!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Again, Kristen Ashley has done a really good job with the story and characters. I can't wait to read the third in The Three Series. I have enjoyed both, Until the Sun Falls From the Sky and With Everything I am. They keep my attention throughout the stories.

Reading Kristen Ashley books is like being on a roller coaster ... Just put your arms up in the air and enjoy ... But somehow I always end up finishing her book and wanting the next in the series to be ready ... Aargh. So, when IS the last in this trilogy being released?

That said, I can wait for Ally and Ren's book ... And so it goes. Rock on, KA

Loved this book. Callum was total alpha badass werewolf king. Sonia had no clue she was to be his queen. The sex is amazing the characters interesting and well developed. The story was all KA. every book is great!

Huge fan of all of KA's books, but this one has hit very close to the top of the list (probably only a spot or two below Motorcycle Man)! I could not put it down. The story grabbed me from the first page and there wasn't a single moment that didn't keep me completely entranced. There's no way you could be disappointed if you buy this book.

As a dedicated fan of Kristen Ashley's work, I feel almost disloyal in giving this book a 3-star rating - not that a 3-star rating is bad, it just means that I found this book to be just "okay" but not great.

My biggest problem with this book is with Sonia, The Unbelievably Clueless. I mean, really, if your "mate's" people kept referring to you as "human" wouldn't that make you curious enough to open your mouth and ask exactly WHAT it is that you're boinking so enthusiastically every day? Yet, she never does.

Even if she wasn't the curious type, perhaps things like a wolf charm, a castle named "Canis", wolf-shaped confetti, a bar called "Claws", children referred to as "pups" - and other things of that ilk might provide her with at least an inkling of what exactly she was dealing with.

For pete's sake, Sonia - connect the freaking dots already!

Aside from that, the overabundance of parenthetical phrases was making me more than a little crazy. I don't recall anything quite like it in her previous books and I did not like it. At all.

As always, though, KA is an imaginative story teller and, even though some of the incidentals of this story fell rather flat, it's still worth a read. But it's one of the rare KA books that I won't re-read over and over again.

What an amazing book. I was blown away!! Absolutely loved this book!! I do not like vampires, wolfs, and prn, but KA is making me second guess this genre.

I am still recovering from Callum. Honest to god, I want my own wolf!!

I have read all her other series and loved them. I found this book a little slow and longer than needed. I also found female main character a little annoying and not the strong leading lady she usually portrays.
★ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
One of my favorite author but I hated this book. The first book in the series was great so I thought to get the second one. I could hardly read it without wanting to toss my kindle across the room. The main female is nothing but a mat for him to walk on. I hated it so much she couldn't even talk to him there was not chemistry. I'm so confused to really like the first book to hating this one and not wanting to finish the series in case the third book is like the second. I guess I just wanted and strong female lead not a meek walk mat that doesn't speak her mind even though she goes on and on and on about wanting to but never doing it. I wanted to rip out my hair at this frustrating book.

john irvin hauser
Disclaimer: I bought, read and consumed this book (in one long night) as I have with every other book that KA has written. I am a fan. And I will buy her next book... and her next... (although I might ask a friend for a loaner on the last "Three" book)

It's about a woman name Sonia who has 'gifts', never connects with others because she has to hide them (she lost her parents long ago) and who is destined to be the king of werewolf's mate. That all happens in the first few chapters---the rest (and it's a LOT) is her trying to cope with her mate being an @$$ and him "so patiently" waiting for her to clue in about his world without actually telling her the fundamental trait of his people.

.... but I did not like it.


1) Sonia. Her characterization was confusing: from the whole dual house thing, her Christmas obsession, I felt like other than a few quirks, I never knew her. And I didn't like her--the entire book she felt weak for never demanding better treatment from Callum and for always giving into the hot sex. Well, I thought she was weak too, and that didn't change **EVER** --she also seemed pretty self-pitying and clueless for what I thought was supposed to be a business-savvy thirty-five year old. Being in her head--she felt like a teenager--ick!

2) Callum. He's a jerk! I like KA's heroes and most of them can be 'jerks' at times. But Callum IS a jerk. And every time--EVERY TIME--when she was trying to leave him, I was disappointed that she didn't. He explains his point of view and suddenly, she's capitulating and saying "aww[...]" and forgetting the horrible stuff he said/did. Why didn't she ever ACTUALLY stand up for herself? And why doesn't he actually ever repent? He feels bad that he doesn't 'know' her? Sorry, not a good enough grovel, pal.

3) the plot. Um, was there one? The rebellion--happens off stage. The Queen gets scratched up--big whoop and then... oh wait, it's all different because she spoke in his ear (why does a guy I'm supposed to like as a hero want to act that way anyway? because it's tradition? LAME). Basically the plot was Sophia's inner struggle with her jerk of a husband/mate. Oh, and the fact that she's mortal human. Except that you know the end fifty pages in--you know what the injections are really doing and you know a) romance: HEA coming (of course that means immortality) b) KA: so you know it's HEA (yay!) but that means there isn't a plot. There was no conflict--except Sophia's weak whining! Oh, wait, there's the whole nebulous "prophecy" stuff and the conspiracy by characters to keep stuff hidden. greeeat.

4) the sex. sorry, not sexy. And it happens over and over. For the first time in a KA, I'm skipping sex scenes. When it's the only thing holding their relationship together?

For you KA regulars:
nickname: baby doll
sex quirk: the chain around her hips, "greedy" (repeat)
her quirk: loves Christmas a lot
his demand: she call him 'wolf'
appearance: curvy, of course (he makes her eat, of course)
expresses anger: pins her down and pushes her to explode in anger

Recommendation: if you're a die hard fan, you will buy and read this. If you actually are looking for a good introduce-her-to-werewolf life as a mate plot: I'd read MA Everaux's wolf book, or Bitten by Armstrong (though not the sequels). If you're going for your first KA: go to her classics, her great ones: Rock Chicks, Motorcycle Man... etc. I'm afraid I just can't get behind this series. If you want a better example of "Destined queen", her Circe and Lahn novel is way better.

I just want to start out by saying that I love Kristen Ashley's books they are original and fun. That being said, I am not a fan of this book. First, and this could just be my opinion, I did not like how (what felt like) about 60-70% of the book was in Callum's point of view. I like my "alpha males" (as the author likes to refer to them as) to be mysterious. When I know their motive behind everything and I know their every thought, it decreases their mystique and makes them seem too normal; which is something an alpha male should NOT be. And he was extremely clueless also (which isn't a helpful characteristic for a supposed lycan king). He would be thinking "My mate is so perfect, this is perfect." While she (Sonia) would be thinking "I hate his guts and I hate my life." I don't know if it was the authors goal to make Callum seem so stupidly obtuse, but if so then mission accomplished!
I also did not like Sonia. She was SOOOOOOOOOOOOO self-absorbed. She pitied herself WAY to much and that is just not an attractive quality in a heroine. She was way to "Woe is me, I am with this hot guy who i like, though I don't think he likes me so I will hate him in secret and resent him. But i won't do anything about it because I am a helpless female. Everybody pity me because I am a martyr who has to spend time with this guy who doesn't like me...BLAH, BLAH, BLAH" She made herself into a needless self-martyr (if that makes any sense, which it probably doesn't to anyone but me :)) and it just made her look pathetic and self-absorbed and a bit of a Bi- uh, witch. And she was way too passive-agressive, she would expect Callum to read her mind and then resent him when he wasn't able to pick up on her passive-agressive comments (which is the way most women are I guess!).
It also could have been the mood I was in while I was reading the book, but the story line didn't capture my attention like Ashley's other stories did. I found my mind wandering. I did start getting more into the book at the end but by then there were only about 50 pages left. I don't mean to sound so harsh, it's just that I really like Kristen Ashley's books so when I read this I was just so disapointed. I don't know maybe I just missed whatever point Ashley was trying to make in this book; whatever that may be.
★ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
NORMALLY... as a rule; I love Ms. A's work...Not this time! Seriously, I'm sorry but I think if Sonia was my only option for a mate...I would have to go ahead and die alone since there is NO way in heaven nor hell that I would ever want anyone that judgmental and stupid and whiney!
I love at least half of each of Ms. Ashley's books but I have to ask this question...Are ALL of the women in your acquaintance actually as outright stupid and condescending or are you simply this judgmental and condescending toward All women with the possibility of becoming a heroine?
For those of you who have already invested time and or money in this series...book 3 "Wild and Free" of this series is much better...
BOOK #1: "Till the Sun Falls From the Sky" Leah the heroine...knows she has no choice in becoming a 'concubine' aka food source. A supposedly 40 something year old woman intentionally gets herself kicked out of the classes that would have explained Sooo much about exactly what is expected of her and then will not listen to anything anyone says and then whines through about 2/3 of the 4, 5 hundred page book and then Totally beleives every word out of the villains mouth without question!
BOOK #2(this one) change the stupider than dirt heroines name to Sonia age of 35, the hero to a wolf and PRESTO CHANGO... New book! Also very long! Personal recommendation...read a few reviews and you'll know what you need to in order to understand and enjoy the third book in this series and save yourself 3.99!
BOOK #3 "Wild and Free" Is worth reading and I would give it the five stars that it deserves...
Sooo to wrap this review up... Ms. Kristen Ashley...if you really feel this way about ALL the women you know..I'm glad that I don't know you cuz we would have to get in one of them "hair pullin, nail scratchin, teeth bitin catfights"!

Negatives & Positives
Unfortunately I had to read this on my OverDrive. That means I don't have notes to help me in my review. I seem to remember a couple of typos in my copy, but nothing that interfered with the story. I loved both main characters, Callum & Sonia. I also loved Callum's mom & we got to know Gregor & Yuri a lot more. The supporting characters felt real and were also well defined. There were so many things I loved about this one.
The intrigue, the adult romance, the mystery and suspense kept me reading and involved.
However, I had to take away points for how slow paced it was. This was mostly due to Ms. Ashley's tendency to over describe or ramble in certain areas of the story. Usually it doesn't effect her stories as much as it did here.
I know a lot of my fellow Kristen Ashley fans may disagree with me, but I really think this one could have been about 100 pages shorter. There were just to many areas that had the pace slowing down to a crawl.
All in all, it is a dang good, near about perfect, definitely hot and steamy read.

I want to start by saying that this is only the second Kristen Ashley book I have ever read. But I will definitely be reading more of her books in the future, especially book 3 in this series.

When Sonia was just a little girl she saved an injured wolf from hunters on Christmas Eve. She got him to follow her back to her parents cabin & she fell asleep next to him in front of the fire. When she awoke he was gone and she thought her "puppy" had died. That was the night the future king of wolves met his lifemate. That was the night her life changed forever. Instead of being raised by the doting parents she adored she was raised as the ward of Gregor & his son Yuri. And while they love her she feels she has to hide much of who she really is.

WOW!!!! I seriously loved this book and these characters!!! Yes, Sonia had some major quirks but I definitely understood them the farther I got into the book. And yes, Callum really be a jackass sometimes but he is the king of wolves and an alpha male. But everything about this book worked for me. While Sonia may have seemed to give in quite a bit she learned quickly to stand up for herself when she really felt strongly about something.

I was really a little worried about buying this book because of several reviews but I'm glad I asked around. I thought I loved Until the Sun Falls from the Sky but this one was SO much better. I am REALLY looking forward to reading book 3.

What a freaking follow-up! This series is really shaping up to be amazing, it's certainly got me totally hooked! 
In this second installment in The Three series we meet the next couple in the sacred triumvirate. Callum is the king of the werewolves, he's centuries old and unlike Lucian he knows about the prophecies. He also knows about his destined mate and has known about her for some time. He has had eyes on her for years, keeping her safe until the time to claim her is right. Only she knows nothing about him, or the supernatural world. 
Sonia is a bit of a loner, an orphan who finds it difficult to maintain friendships as she has these abilities that she keeps hidden. She can't allow anyone to get too close to her lest they find out about her secret abilities.
Sonia and Callum together are freaking explosive! Things get a bit frustrating at times because Sonia doesn't trust easily and struggles to share her thoughts and emotions, and Callum is a typical dude, amplified by his being a different species to her, doesn't pick up on the subtle nuances of a p*ssed off woman. 
I loved the new characters we are introduced to in this book, we see the other side of the paranormal world, and I don't just mean Callum and Sonia, I mean all of Callum's wolves. Ryon especially, I reeeeally liked Ryon!
There's a few twists and turns in this story and a bit of a shocker near the end, it nearly had me crying at some parts! I adore this series and I can't wait to get stuck into the third and final installment. Although I imagine it'll be bittersweet, I'll be sad to see the end of this series and let these characters go.

I totally lied to all of you! I said that Lucien was the essence of the perfect dream man and I was so wrong, I should be burnt at the stake for ever saying that. Because ladies...and certainly some gentlemen, Callum is in fact the perfect man. He embodies everything and all things perfect.

He is my new book boyfriend and I'm so much in love ❤

In fact, not only is Callum my new Lucien (Book #2), With Everything I Am is so far in the top 3 for my favorite books for 2012. The bar had been set high enough and Kristen Ashley just blew it all out of the water with this book.

I don't actually think there's an author out there, who has as many books as she has and then to have all of them magnificent... It's unheard of. She's absolutely a one-of-a-kind author and should be winning more awards... particularly the best author of all time with the most amazing, all of which you will love award.

Okay... now for the only issue I had with this book. There was this little thing that occurred much to often in the writing style. It's the first time I've noticed it in any of Kristen Ashley's books and I'm seriously hoping it's not a new style. I really hope it's exclusive to this book, because it actually annoyed me.

Sonia suffered from a serious case of lying to herself. Now that wasn't the problem. I could live with that because I suppose we all do it at some point. What I really didn't like was the way it which it was written. It went something like this:

"I told myself that I hated the way he touched me (when really I did love it), I didn't like his cuddling (when I actually did), I wanted to go home (which I really didn't), I wasn't happy here (which I was)"...ect ect.

It happened often and for long internal dialogues. It really grated me and I'm not entirely sure why, because looking back at it now I don't feel as irritated by it, but I definitely was while I was reading the book. I actually rolled my eyes every time this happened. There were too many of this form of dialogues taking place for Sonia and she began to annoy me with her way of thinking. I'm glad that it did fade out after a while, but not before it became something that I won't easily forget.

Now as you know, I'm not one for writing a review that includes spoilers so I won't start going in that direction with this review. But I like to mention parts that I loved and moments that really touched me enough to point them out.

I was over-the-moon happy that the passion and steam started early in the book. I was fanatical about the fact that they didn't have any separation drama... well except for the 'change' but it was brief so I can't complain. I adored the fact that they remained actively passionate and it was hot as hell and more than welcomed. I couldn't take my eyes away from this book. It was magical and perfect and just everything that I want from a adult romance novel.

Let me get back to the main reason this book made me squirm. Callum... The superior dream man, alpha male wolf king! Yes... he is in fact a King and therefore I am now a Queen since well... he's mine, you see!

He is perfect and loyal. Sexy as all blazing hell, rough around the edges and all man.

There is no other character out there like him and I don't believe there will be for a while. He'll remain my dream man for a solid good while... but I'm going to tell you a secret and in a way I'm hoping it's going to come true and in another I'll be quite content if it doesn't... but since it seems that from the first book, I was completely, intoxicatingly (I don't know if it's a word... but it sounds fitting), devotedly crazy about Lucien, only to push him aside with absolute ease so he can make room for Callum to enter and take his place in my heart...sooooo....I'm nervous and excited all at the same time, because I'm thinking that who ever the third guy is in the third book... might just overshadow him and I don't know if I'm able to survive the impact if this prediction becomes true, but I can not wait to find out if I'm correct.

"Baby doll, you're about to be claimed."

I'm so claimed right now and I'm proud to shout it to the world that Kristen Ashley and With Everything I Am is a top favorite book of 2012.

This is one of my favorite shifter romance novels. It’s intense, so much sweetness, angst, Love, and just everything. Calling and Sonia and so good together even when they struggle and are overwhelmed. I could go on and on about this book, and this reread, even for the third time, still gives me the feels. I know how it would play out but that didn’t stop the laughter, the anger, heartbreak, and so much more. Off to do my second read of book 3 and experience the full power of the three yet again. 5 Stars #2OCCJD

Callum is driven to the woods one night on instinct to protect...what he isn't sure until he sees this little human child. Sonia Arlington saved a wolf on the night her parents are killed and hasn't seen her "puppy" since. She lives a lonely life, only because before her father was killed she vows to him she will keep her secret guarded and to stay distant so others won't notice. Callum is now King of the Werewolves and it has been leaked that Sonia is his human mate. He is forced to claim her before she is ready and they must figure out a way to work their relationship out even knowing that Sonia is mortal and Callum is not.

With Everything I Am is a wonderful continuation of The Three series. Callum and Sonia must find their way to their HEA and come to terms that Sonia is mortal and doesn't have forever in order to further the Prophesy. So far I have fallen deeply into whatever world K. Ashley creates and have loved it. This is no different. K. Ashley just has that way with words that pulls you in and keeps you there till she is done and you move onto the next. :)

I've just been skipping through this book ready for the release of 'Wild and Free' and discovered that for some reason I've never actually reviewed this book, since I've read it several times I'm struggling to work out why, but anyway..
This is a great read and a wonderful second book in 'The Three Series' it starts with Callum meeting Sonia while he's in wolf form and she's just a child, he feels inexplicably drawn to her and ultimately she saves his life.
Sonia's parents are assassinated and she lives a very lonely life, Callum is now King of the Werewolves but once word escapes that Sonia is his mate she becomes a target leaving Callum with no choice but to whisk her away and claim her, this does not run smoothly since Callum knows little to nothing about humans and doesn't like blondes, I mean who ever heard of a blonde werewolf. Sonia is human, blonde and ill not at all what Callum the King envisioned as his mate.
The characters are fabulous and the story is interesting and while I can't wait for the next book I really don't want this series to end.

I loved this sucker even better than the first one. For reasons discussed in my review for the first book in the series (Until the Sun Falls From the Sky) I had put off reading the first book. I read the summary for this book and still wasn't crazy about starting this series! The summary states that the werewolf king finds his mate, but she is human and dying of an illness. Yuck! What a downer! I am so glad I got started on this series and didn't let the summary deter me for much longer.

Sonia Arlington is human and does have a rare disease that is killing her. She has to take injections nightly and these are painful. At the beginning of this story Sonia is being attacked by some badies and Callum (aforementioned werewolf king) comes to the rescue. Then she is whisked off to a cabin where she spends her time trying to escape her delusional kidnapper. Callum, being king, is used to taking and ordering, not asking for anything. Sonia is whisked around at his whims, and fights falling for this big, bossy jerk!

My biggest complaint about this book is that there were a lot of misunderstandings. Some were intentional by key players in order to play out the prophesy as it is supposed to unfold. But Callum doesn't tell Sonia how he feels about her. Sonia hears Callum's brothers talking at the beginning and learns a lot of stuff that hurts her feelings. But she doesn't bring it up, she just uses it to keep herself from falling for him. There are other times when she buries stuff until she explodes! I am not a big fan of misunderstandings keeping people apart so that was frustrating.

Overall, I loved this book. There was so much heart break in this one. It makes what Lucien and Leah went through in the first book seem trivial. The ending was not expected so I enjoyed that! I would love for Ryon, and Callum's brothers, Calder and Caleb to get their own books too. Especially, surly Calder! He needs a dose of lose-your-mind-and-your-logic-because-you-have-fallen-in-love!

Favorite Quote: Callum to Sonia

"If I could have wished what I thought was my perfect mate on the wind and had her come back to me in a storm, I could never have come up with anything as exquisite as you."

The second book in the "Three Series" is another great read from KA. Great characters and plot. As usual Callum the werewolf king is KA's usual really alpha male hero. Sonia the heroine was a much better character than Leah who was in the first book of the series. Leah does make an appearance in this but she seemed to have had a personality transplant she was totally toned down. Sonia is somewhat self depreciating but I didn't mind that. She is a sweet person, and likeable.

Sonia and Callum have been meant for each other for all time it was predestined. There were a few problems though. Callum knows nothing about human women and how to deal with them, she wolves are different. He also doesn't do blonds. Sonia is human and blond. She also has lead quite a solitary life up until Callum storms into it. Then she finds herself swept along on a tide. Not really knowing what's happening.

This is a fairly long and complicated story peppered with great characters. I am really disappointed that there is to be only one other book to come. There are some really great characters in this whom I would love for KA to write their own story. My only complaint is that the ending felt a bit rushed. As usual all of the Salient points of this are explained for the reader. It's just it always seems that there is too much packed in at the end. But nevertheless this is still a great read KA has the ability to grab her readers and carry them along from the first page the the last.

There is a small peek at the next book I hope the wait for that isn't too long off in the future

This is my very first review so bear with me. I'll begin by saying that im a HUGE fan of KA, I love mostly everything she writes. This book is definitely not my favorite. First off I think it was too long, I felt like I was being force fed. I didn't really like Sonia's character, I don't want to write any spoilers but I like who she became, unfortunately I felt she didn't fight for herself, how do you spend an entire flight and not say a word, how do you even make it on said flight with absolutely no opportunity to hold your ground? She rarely gave voice to any of her issues and when she tried and got interrupted by Cal, she would just shut down? I also didn't like that it was in the 3rd person, im used to reading her books from the heroin's POV so that took a little getting used to. The story itself I thought was really good, and I liked all the characters. Another thing positive i wanted to address is the language, like I said I have read many of her books but the one complaint I have about ALL of them is the language, weather they be, biker, Colorado man even from Main, they all had the same speak...the constant "babe"'s, etc.. Oh in this book it was a lot of "Good, goodness", ive never herd anyone say that before...
I loved Cal, I loved the little habbits they formed as a couple and all the endearments he had for her, very sweet but he was warrior through and through! Bad A$$

This review was first posted at Reading Between The Wines!

Kristen Ashley does it again! Super Alpha man? Check. Fab heroine? Check. Good support characters? Check. The only thing that wasn't the same as her standard 'Need These To Make Awesome Story Checklist' was a plot with lots of twists and turns. While the story didn't have loads of her usually standard good twists, the few she had were really good, and all KA fans will not be disappointed! This book is the second book in a series, but you don't have to read the first book, Until The Sun Falls From The Sky. I would recommend you read it though simply because, yet again, it was a super awesome Ashley book!

There's no surprise KA has recently signed on with Grand Central Publishing to release some of her books. It was only a matter of time for this amazingly talented woman to shine even brighter than she already is. So to wrap it up, you have to read this book cause it has superbly hot werewolves, meddling but caring vampires, interesting plot twists, and a good story line. I wouldn't necessarily want a Callum, king of the werewolves, of my own, but I sure as hell had a blast reading about him and his life mate Sonia. Reading their emotional rollercoaster love story with Callum's very really grief that he only has a limited time with his life mate might prick your tear ducts. Four overflowing wine glasses of a totally top shelf wine (cause out girl Kit only deserves the best), and I hope all of you lovelies enjoy this story!

When I read a book I like to care about the characters

Gah, did not care for characters at all.

When I read a book I like to care about the characters, I did not like the characters AT ALL. or the plot.

Sonia- just meh, apart from the Christmas thing and the thinking she's too fat thing, there's not much to her character at all. She is such a pushover. She was kidnapped by a guy and held in a cabin in the woods and is then cooking and cleaning for him after a few hours. She went from -oh I am so scared and must run away- to -yes I will go into the kitchen to make a meal for my abductor and his friend because he told me to -in about 30 seconds. She is also unhappy for most of the book, which is not super fun to read- get some sass woman!!

Callum- Jerk.

It does have a HEA, but I felt no warm fuzzies- I was not invested in these characters at all. This was a HOT book though. BUT it is possible to have a hot book without wanting to reach into the book and slap the characters (in a non-sexy way), and this was not one of those books.

I am still fairly new to the world of Kristen Ashley, and I know she has an avid fan base here on the store, but while overall I do enjoy her books so far, I am learning she can be hit or miss for me. And unfortunately, this one was a miss. Being a big PNR fan, I read all of the Fantasyland series and really enjoyed it (except for Fantastical, that was a snoozer) with Wildest Dreams being my favorite book by this author that I have yet read, so I had been looking forward to reading the Three series, being as it seems her only other true PNR type books. Granted, I had to yet to read the first book, and possibly that was part of the problem here, but the biggest problem I had with this book was that there was just no plot - really none whatsoever. There was a brief side story regarding the revolution, since that is finally why Callum decided to come get Sonia, his queen, after all these years. But other than her suffering with these nightly injections that kept her blood from "boiling" (you could see where that was going from like a mile away), the book was like 400 pages of Callum bossing her around, Sonia hiding her feelings from him and not communicating, and then sex, sex, and more (yawn) sex. Unlike the Fantasyland series, where was the adventure, where was the emotional connection between the two main characters, where was the villain to defeat, where was the sense of fun?

Also, what was a little weird to me, for being a book involving werewolves, there was very little seen of actual werewolves in the book, until the very end, so it could have been a book about anything. Instead, they should have made the hero and his clan be elves, with all the amount of writing that was devoted to the heroine's love of Christmas, her perfect Christmas parties that all the neighbors rave about, her perfect choice of Christmas presents that she literally spends all year buying, her perfectly decorated house with all the Christmas decorations, and even the secret small Christmas tree that she hides in her bedroom so that her guardian can't see it and take it away. Hello? You are supposed to be a 37-year old woman! Sorry, I digress. Let me go back to writing poetry and haikus about the greatness of Christmas, because bizarrely I felt like we got more from that in the story than we did anything else, except more sex. And the last thing I'll point out was my absolute annoyance with the Prophecies, which although I did not read the first book, clearly is a running theme in the series. There is no explanation in this book as to why these prophecies are important, only that they exist. And then when the hero finds out that two people involved in both his and his wife's lives withheld material information about the prophecies from them for no apparent reason that I can tell, he just seems to accept it, because well, they're prophecies. So needless to say, I was disappointed that this book was not as good as I'd hoped it would be, and I'm annoyed enough I may not read the other two books in this series - or maybe it's an aberration like Fantastical was, but at least that one I give 3 stars.

I liked this series even if I waited too much to bring it to the end. The second (as I'm already reading the third one) is in my opinion the best of the 3. Cullen and Sofia are pretty cool together and the plot is developing in an interesting way. Let's see how it ends.

Questa serie mi piaceva, anche se ho aspettato veramente troppo per finirla. Siccome sto giá leggendo il terzo, posso dire con assoluta certezza che questo secondo volume é il migliore dei 3. Cullen e Sofia sono una bella coppia e la trama generale si sta sviluppando in modo interessante.

As usual, I love how Kristen Ashley writes and even though the Werewolf/Vampire stuff isn't my usual reading fare......I quite enjoyed this book. It's a continuing story and the first book in the 'three series' (Until the Sun Falls from the Sky) should be read first. Number three book isn't out, as yet and may be on KA' radar for a release down the road.

What did I really like about this book?
Callum was a great hero-type and he just happens to be tall, dark, handsome, hunky, and king of the werewolves.
Sonia is kind of a sad woman who has had a very lonely life. She's not to be pitied......BUT.......she is like a flower waiting to unfurl and she doesn't have a clue as to how her 'unfurling' mechanisms work. All along the reader is wondering what the heck is going on with Sonia.....and at some point it starts to click-in and fall into place - where Sonia belongs. Of course it's with Callum!

Very good KA story. As always this reader is looking forward to what KA puts out next (FIRE INSIDE - A CHAOS NOVEL - June 4, 2013).

WITH EVERYTHING I AM is the second book in Ms. Ashley’s, The Three series. While I didn’t enjoy it as much as UNTIL the SUN FALLS from the SKY, I still couldn’t put it down. Callum is King of the Werewolves and Sonja is his destined human mate. Their journey to find each other as true mates was filled with a ton of angst for me. Oh my gosh, they put me through the wringer the entire way through their journey to find each other!

Again the deep POV and fantastic world-building will ensure I read WILD and FREE, the next and final in the series.

Focused. Strong. True.

Kristen Ashley excels is at painting a sweet and spicy romance between her hot males and kooky females, be they werewolves, Rock Chicks, vampires, police officers or bikers, and this book did just that and I devoured every page of it. ~ Under the Covers

Sonia Arlington has always been a bit...weird, her sense of hearing, sight and smell are all heightened and she an uncanny way with animals, all this she must hide, afraid that the world will think she is a freak. She also has re-occurring dreams about her wolf and a handsome man; her dream man, and even though she knows he isn't real she longs for him. Callum is the King of Werewolves and Sonia is his mate, even if she doesn't know it she was born for him, they even have a Prophecy stating they are one of the three couples that must meet to save mankind from being subjugated, meaning there is more at stake then just their hearts...

What a relief!! Although I worship at the alter of Kristen Ashley, I really really didn't like the first book in the series Until the Sun Falls from the Sky, Lucian, the hero rubbed me the wrong way, HOWEVER, I would just looove to rub myself all over Callum the sexy werewolf and hero of With Everything I Am. He was a classic Kristen Ashley hero, arrogant, high handed but leg splittingly sexy and gruffly sweet.

What I love about these books (and all Kristen Ashley books really) is that although there is a massive plot to enslave all humankind what it unashamedly focuses on is the romance going on between Sonia and Callum and doesn't really go into the whole humans-as-slaves thing. For some people I know this may sound odd, but where Kristen Ashley excels is at painting a sweet and spicy romance between her hot males and kooky females, be they werewolves, Rock Chicks, vampires, police officers or bikers, and this book did just that and I devoured every page of it.

With Everything I Am was a really enjoyable read, with humour, romance and some fabulous characters to get stuck into, I really hope this ends up being more then a trilogy and some of the secondary characters get a chance at a book as well *hint hint Kristen, in case you are reading!*

I really enjoyed this title. It's sexy, sweet, and has a lot going on. My only major critique is the length. I love getting my money's worth, but this book could have been shorter and still just as great. Some of the dialogue and situations were a bit redundant. Other than that, it was a good read and I'd definitely recommend the series.

I found this book to be unnecessarily long or maybe it just seemed long because I wanted it to end. The dialogue between the characters were almost too painful to read. I found myself skimming and skipping through much of the story and the ending was just silly. This was my first werewolf romance book and my last. I can't say I liked it much. I tend to like vampire romances. Thought I'd give this story a try since it was only .99 cent. I'm glad it only cost me .99 cents.

Another good story in my opinion. It's good to see that Leah and Lucian are together in full blown love. Now Sonia and Callum here is another I hate you and you belong to me story. Poor Sonia I sometimes wanted to throw my kindle at here when she didn't speak her mind and put callum in his place. But even tho it took Sonia a while to figure out how to handle the big bad sexy wolf, boy did she handle him. I really liked the fact that this was a different story with a lot of drama and secrets, but hang in there it all gets explained in the end. Can't wait for book three.

This was the first Kristen Ashley book I ever read, and it made me a believer! I don't even know where to start... First, I was daunted by the number of pages, but by the end, I wished there was more. I LOVED the dynamics between Sonnny and Cal. It's a good thing no one was around when I was reading certain parts or else they'd have thought I was crazy!. Being human and female (as opposed to being werewolf and female), there were times when Cal did, said or thought some things and I said (out loud) 'Oh no! Did he really do/say that???!!!'

The way in which KA developed the characters to the point where they finally ended up (trying my best not to give anything away here...), it was amazing to read. Especially the part where Sonny...... then Cal..... !!!!!! (that's all I can say without giving it away)

This is definitely worth the time spent reading it. Absolutely NO regrets. Anxiously awaiting the third book.

Gitte: Oh Jenny...I was like a kid at Christmas when we got this arc. Kristen is one of my all-time fave Authors as you know, and she has not written one single book that wasn't amazing and has the perfect balance of story and the yummy factor! Kristen is one of those few Authors that can write everything she turns her hand too and that includes paranormal. Her alpha heroes have that perfect balance of arrogance, determination, vulnerability and the sex factor! They are protectors! I have re-read all her books so many times and every new book I read of hers is like coming home. She reaches right into my heart every time with her words.

Jenny: She is indeed one of our favourite authors and a new book by Kristen Ashley is indeed a cause for celebration. Gitte, you're so right. It was funny that we commented and agreed when we started reading this that "reading a KA book is like coming home" and it really and truly is. Somehow Kristen seems to release a book when I need it - does she have ESP? Her alpha males are spot on for me and she always seems to get the balance just right.

Gitte: How much did we love Callum, Jenny?! He is perfect, his cockiness is endearing despite being trying at times, and yeah he really did test me at times. He is a yummy hot powerful wolf, the King of the Wolves. He is so controlling and dominant yet he has the biggest heart and wow does he LOVE. And Sonia, I absolutely loved her. Her story broke my heart, such tragedy of loss and such a tough life, not quite knowing who she is, why she is different almost hiding in the shadows. I knew from the start that this was going to be quite a ride and Callum & Sonia sure took me on quite an emotional and sexy journey. And yeah....I cried Jenny!

Jenny: Gitte, I don't think there are words to describe how much we loved Callum! This man/wolf has stolen my heart and left me breathless that's for sure. What a wonderful mix he is. Alpha, possessive, loves with intensity (oh boy, does this man LOVE!)says it like it is, and isn't afraid to show his emotions and ummm "love" for Sophie (more on that side of things in a minute...is it HOT in here?). I was the same Gitte. Absolutely loved Sonia. My heart broke for her and what she had been through and being "different" and having to cope with her loneliness just did me in. Oh you can bet I cried.....I cried buckets for her!

Gitte: I loved how Callum and Sonia's story as life-mates started...how they met, how it began as such sweet innocence for Sonia. The symbolism of the wolf. It was so emotional having their story almost from day one. "My Puppy" awww which then turned to the lush "My Wolf" *swoon*.....
It was clear in the beginning that duty came first with Callum after all he is the King. However, it was the fact that there was a lack of the instant connection for Sonia, I suppose Sonia being human and a total contrast to his she-wolf "conquests". However for Sonia, her dreams of "her wolf" kept her going despite not making any connections to Callum in his human form, yet she felt the bond that exists between them. The journey of their relationship was quite funny at times, Callum had me in stitches at first...seriously this guy is such a cock at times...but I love him!! I have to say that he had my heart right from the get go. Sonia bless her, kind of just followed after a while...followed and accepted. Don't get me wrong Jenny I really loved her but at times I kind of wanted to shake her and say: just sort him out. I wish at times she had more guts to say what she wanted but then again what happened wouldn't have been as emotional and epic! And let me tell you...the last bit of the story. I was CRYING...

Jenny: As you know GG I went off paranormal for a long time. It just seemed to be done and redone but I read Until the Sun Falls From the Sky (Book #1 The Three Series) and it was so different from the norm that I was hooked. I wondered how this book was going to stack up to that one and I have to say this one excelled for me! Kristen has a way of putting such a different slant on paranormal tales and this Werewolf story was no exception.
How Kristen crafted the story from the very beginning - from the life mate angle right through the story had me so captivated and engrossed that I didn't even realise until I got to the end that I had forgotten to highlight my favourite bits. That's how much I loved their story!!!!
Callum was hysterical at times! He was a cocky bastard but oh god I never once wavered in my undying love for him. I agree that were a couple of times I did want to shake Sonia as well but then I had to stop and think about the situation she had been placed in, the confusion surrounding her and I got her. Oh you warned me about the last bit. You said I'd cry and you weren't wrong GG! I sobbed!!!!

Gitte: So yeah I thought this story was FAB Jenny. I love my paranormal but sometimes find them a bit too heavy and confusing. This story really wasn't. Yes it had a plot full of twists and action with lots of conflict but ultimately it also had a gorgeous romance and really...Kristen is still the Queen of epilogues for sure no doubt...no contest! I loved the whole pack of hot randy wolves...each and every one of them! I kind of wish they could all have their own story told. Especially Ryon!!
And seriously I cannot say how much I am gagging for book #3....that short glimpse we got, I know without a doubt the guy is going to be AMAZING!! Cannot wait....

Jenny: Absolutely LOVED this one GG! It came at the right time and was exactly what I needed to read. I didn't find the story confusing either - Kristen has a way of never losing the reader with confusing plot lines. They are involved and intriguing but never confusing and I love that.
This story had it ALL for me....A hot, to die for alpha hero, who was the right blend of dominance and assertiveness, humour and emotion, fantastic in bed (was he ever!!) oh the list is endless. A heroine who will steal your heart and a great cast of supporting characters and a story that will captivate you from start to finish.

Book 3!!! OMG I can't wait for that - both Gitte and I agreed that the sneak peek of this book had us sold and this book is going sounds amazing! Hope we don't have to wait too long, I don't think I ould stand it! Oh and the guy in the third book??? Oh yes...he owned us with one word !! You'll see!

I'm sure this book will be great in the long run – but God save me from the toxic chick fluff! Not all women need to hear about wardrobe, girly rituals such as baths, perfumes, frippery, etc.! Just write the story! If I want to read a catalog regarding women's fashion, I'll choose a different genre!

After the first of The Three Series, I thought I wanted my own Lucien, but he's got nothing on Callum!!!! I'm definitely a wolf girl, just call me she-wolf. Lol! Absolutely could not put this book down. I would love to live in Kristin's mind, hot, Hot ,HOT!!!

I went back and forth with this book. One minute I was enthralled, the next I wanted to punch one or both of the main characters and shut down my kindle! The lack of communication between the two of them was infuriating!!! But they chemistry was undeniable! Looking forward to the final of The Three to fulfill this prophecy.

This book started out strong but faded fast. I usually like KAs alpha males but Callum just came across as arrogant, bossy , spoiled and not a whole lot more. I just didn't feel any real connection to the characters in this book or the storyline.

Classic Kristen Ashley, but with vamps and werewolves, making this series a paranormal readers DREAM!! Alpha-male, Callum the hero and werewolf, is absolutely swoon worthy and seriously sexy-HOT!! Sonia, his human love interest, goes against the grain of what is acceptable in the Werewolf world of whom is proper to mate with; but Callum knows he and Sonia are destined to be together. Even his family will not stop him from loving her...

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It was riddled with KA's unique personal touch of alpha-male talk with steamy, romantic scenes to make any reader squirm with delight. Sonia is also a gorgeous, strong and independent woman, and though she was dominated by her mate, she held her own which made their love scenes even sweeter. Callum's nickname of, "Baby-doll" for Sonia was a tad cliche' although, paled in comparison to the enormous amount of sex scenes. That aside, I enjoyed the endearing love that blossomed for these two and found myself continually rooting for them.

The ending did not disappoint and even had a couple welcomed surprises. So nice!! In addition, I cannot express enough how grateful I am that Ashley continues to keep all of her series books, "stand alones." If you know anything about this author, you already know she can crank them OUT!! That being said, if you're a specific genre reader, be sure to check out all her books because trust me, she's written something for almost every reader. I will continue to be a Kristen Ashley fan for years to come.

Thank you to Ms. Ashley and Chas for providing me the ARC of this book for an honest review.

I loved this book so much better than the first one in its series. I love werewolves and their mannerisms much more than vampires. This book was so hot! The chemistry between the two main characters and angst was worth the read. I loved how it ended and I cant wait to read the next book in this series. Thank you Kristen Ashley!

I have read LOTS of KA books. I really like the first in this series, although, Leah did get on my nerves a touch. This book, however, seemed to have way too much sex, frankly. Also, I felt it was too long for the plot. It could have been much shorter, with less sex (sorry but they all seemed the same to me), and much less 'filler'. That is my humble opinion, though, and others may find a different take. I did like the plot. Even though it was a bit much, I will read the third in the series.
★ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
Oh my god, I am so appalled, frustrated, and furious about this book right now there is steam coming out from my ears.

If you are a woman, then do not read this book. The heroine is treated horribly, pushed around, and basically overruled at every turn by her pathetic excuse of a mate. And speaking of her mate, I wish I could give him a piece of my mind. He is so chauvinistic that it sets my teeth on edge.

I couldn't even get through the entire book because of Callum's attitude towards his (supposedly) destined mate. He disrespects her opinions, ignores her basic human rights, and in my point of view almost rapes her in one scene.

I have read hundreds of werewolf-meets-mate romance books and I have to say this is by far the most blood-boiling of them all. And not in a good way.
★ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
I would LOVE to read thus book but with my preferred method of Audible, I couldn't get past the awful language. I tend to wonder if the author speaks like that :(
Unnecessary language completely killed an otherwise great book. So sad!
