Review: Just One Drop by Quinn Loftis

Just One Drop
Author: Quinn Loftis
Release Date: February 5, 2012
Publisher: Self-Published
The Grey Wolves Book #3
Genre: Young Adult/Bewitching Book Tours

Jennifer Adams, best friend to Jacque Pierce and Sally Morgan, spicy, out spoken, a little crazy and human...or so she thought. Jen has just found out that human DNA is not the only thing that resides in her veins, she happens to share that little pesky werewolf gene, although it isn't more than just a drop. Now that she and her friends are living in Romania with Fane's pack, she is also oh so conveniently stuck with the object of her affection, the fur ball Decebel.

Drawn to each other by something they don't understand Jen finds herself frustrated by the lack of mating signs between her and said fur ball. Not only is she dealing with that not so un-frustrating problem, she now has been informed that because of that little drop of werewolf blood in her she is now required to attended a multi-pack gathering for un-mated wolves. This type of gathering hasn't taken place in over a century but with a shortage of females among the werewolf population the males are getting worried they won't ever find their true mates.

Meanwhile Decebel struggles with the emotions he is feeling towards Jen. He tries to keep his distance but there is just something about the mouthy blonde that keeps him coming back for more of her verbal abuse that he just can't seem to get enough of...go figure.

JUST ONE DROP continues just a short time after the end of BLOOD RITES. The book focuses mostly on Decebel and Jen as they continue to figure out why they are so drawn to each other without having the official mating signs. A good chunk of the book takes place at a singles type convention for un-mated wolves where they try to find their True mates. Because Jen and Decibel do not have the mating signs they are forced to attend and watch each other with other people and it isn't going so well. 

Jen has always been a fun character. She says whats on her mind and doesn't bullshit anyone. She has a lot of self discovery going on throughout the book and while keeping with her snarky, smart asses self she still pulls herself together to get things done. Decebel is a hard-ass on the outside but you can totally tell he is a big hearted guy on the inside. If only he would get over his fears of failing the ones he loves sooner a lot of frustration and heartache could be avoided. Quinn does a really good job with the world she has created but the characters definitely make the series and they are what keeps me coming back for more. I like that even though the focus is on a certain pair that everyone is still involved in the story and you can see everyone's growth throughout.  

The one thing I hated about JUST ONE DROP you ask?? The MASSIVE cliffhanger ending. There is nothing worse then reading a book to its end looking for the happily ever after and being thrown a massive curve ball that feels like its the end of all. Will it keep me from reading book 4? Heck no it is what is going to make me come back. 

I gave it 4/5 stars
