The Awakening: Aiden - Abby Niles

The Book
Release Date: 23 April 2013

Is the gift of eternal love a blessing or a curse? 

After years of counseling grieving shifters, psychiatrist and half-shifter, Dr. Jaylin Avgar has become jaded on shifter mating. She wants to marry a human and forget about the love for eternity crap. Then she meets Aidan O’Connell, an infuriatingly laid back shifter who represents everything she doesn’t want. Yet, the more he pursues her, the more she craves a future with him. Only one thing stands in her way: death. Can she overcome her fear of losing Aidan to the one guarantee in life? 

Millionaire consultant, Aidan O’Connell knows he’ll one day meet a woman who’ll awaken an unrelenting mating instinct. Unfortunately, that woman is Jaylin, who has no qualms about telling him that he and his so-called eternity can shove it. When she pushes him away, he takes a drastic step so she can no longer escape. The close proximity throws the instinct into overdrive. Can he control the need engrained in him until he’s certain she will reciprocate the bond, or will a moment of weakness doom him to hell on earth?

My Opinion  3 STARS
**Provided by Netgalley and Entangled Publishing, LLC for an honest review**

This book has your usual scenario.  Boy and girl meet.  Boy is all alpha male and wants to join with his mate.  The mate is scared and refuses to bond even though she has developed feeling  for his and continues to push him away.  An event happens where one is injured and something happens.  The woman then realises that she can't live without him after all, where upon she then has to get said mate to, well, mate with her.  End of story.

The story telling was good, and yes, it does keep you captivated and it did have some concepts interwoven that I had not read before giving the book a slight edge and newness to the whole werewolf story.

Basically this book is about overcoming your fears for love.
