My Rating: ❤❤❤❤
Jacque Pierce was just an ordinary 17 year old girl getting ready to start her senior year in high school in Coldspring, Texas. When a mysterious foreign exchange student from Romania moves in across the street, Jacque and her two best friends, Sally and Jen, don't realize the last two weeks of their summer was going to get a lot more interesting. From the moment Jacque sets eyes on Fane she feels an instant connection, a pull like a moth to a flame. Little does she know that the flame she is drawn to is actually a Canis Lupus, werewolf, and she just happens to be his mate; the other half of his soul. The problem is Fane is not the only wolf in Coldspring, Texas. Just as Fane and Jacque are getting to know each other, another wolf steps out to try and claim Jacque as his mate. Fane will now have to fight for the right to complete the mating bond, something that is his right by birth but is being denied him by a crazed Alpha. Will the love Fane has for Jacque be enough to give him the strength to defeat his enemy, will Jacque accept that she is Fane's mate and complete the bond between them?
Jacque lives in the small town of Coldspring, TX where there is not always a whole lot of excitement. When she learns that her neighbors are getting a foreign exchange student, she is immediately intrigued. She camps out by her window waiting for him to arrive, and is in for a surprise.
Fane arrives at the house that is to be his home for the next year, and feels something different. He looks around and sees a girl staring at him from a window. As soon as he realizes what is going on, he cannot wait to meet her. Fane belongs to the Romanian pack of Canis lupus, and believes that the girl in the window is his true mate.
As soon as Jacque lays eyes on the gorgeous guy that will be staying across the street, she starts to hear voices in her head. She thinks she is going crazy, but voices are not even the half of it, things get even crazier...
This story is told in third person, which I found really refreshing. I am used to books in first person, but I found this different point of view very enjoyable. In addition to this point of view, the author tends to switch between focusing on Jacque and Fane. This was very interesting, because you were able to see one scene from both perspectives. Also, since Fane is Romanian, Loftis included a lot of Romanian words. Now I couldn't pronounce them, but I enjoyed seeing them nonetheless. As a side note, I already checked out book 2, Blood Rites and will probably be starting it later tonight.

"Where on earth do you come up with these ideas? Is there like a website called vindictive.com or cruel-mean-ideas.org?"
