After living in hiding for the last twenty-six years, Jessica wakes up to find she's become a full-blooded werewolf -- claws, fangs, fur, everything. It was never supposed to happen: female werewolves don't exist.

When a mercenary killer comes looking for her, her Pack finds themselves caught in the middle of a war. They must rise up to protect her, but no one knows if she's means the end of their race-or just a new beginning.

Jessica has pretty much come to terms with the fact that she will never turn into a werewolf, she has finally convinced her father that she needs to get away from the pack that hates her with a passion and she has been living on her own when the unthinkable happens. She turns.

Jessica was an instant like character for me. She stands up for herself, doesn't take anyone's crap and even though she might be at a disadvantage she will put her all into kicking your ass if you get in her face. The pack treats her like she will be the death of them all and when she actually turns things get even worse for her. Being the only female werewolf ever is hard on a girl but she takes it all in and carries the burden beautifully. The action is non stop in FULL BLOODED if Jessica isn't dodging murder attempts she is fighting her way out of trouble with the local law enforcement agent that has it out for her. The men in her life are loyal and protective and its always nice hearing her describe them. I loved her brother as well as James (fans herself from his hotness). Jessica is also lucky to have found her mate. Their meeting is brief but their connection is strong and I cant wait to dive into book 2 HOT BLOODED to get to know him better. I honestly don't know how anyone could not love this book and I will leave it at that as I don't want to give away to much.

After reading BLOODED the Jessica McClain series quickly became one of my must read series, reading FULL BLOODED didn't lesson that one bit. I highly recommend you jump in to this series immediately by getting a copy of BLOODED so that your ready for FULL BLOODED the moment it hits the shelf. The ending of FULL BLOODED came way to soon and ended on a huge cliffhanger. I'm dying to read HOT BLOODED.

I gave it 5/5 stars
