A Marked #REVIEW of @Adaline_Raine #Spanking #PNR

Marked by the Alpha by Adaline Raine made it's mark.

Dani had always been a lone wolf and she had no desire to join a pack, but that didn’t matter to a true alpha wolf like Mason Daniels. When he finds out that human hunters have been threatening Dani, he puts his mark on her.

Unfortunately, the hunters are foolish enough to disregard his mark, and Dani is captured. After Mason and his pack rescue her from certain death, Dani is given no choice about joining Mason’s pack for her own protection. She soon learns that Mason is fully prepared to spank her bare bottom as often as is necessary to teach her to respect and obey him.

With more hunters closing in and the pack under threat, Mason begins to realize that he must claim Dani as his mate for life—whether she likes it or not—before his need for her drives him mad. At the same time, she is forced to learn her role in the pack and come to terms with her instinctual need to submit to Mason as her alpha and her mate.

Publisher’s Note: Marked by the Alpha is an erotic novel that includes non-consensual spankings, anal play, graphic sexual scenes, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

REVIEW: Marked by the Alpha was a short novella that might've taken on too much. There just weren't enough pages - enough words - to fully evolve the story. I was left with questions about character motivation, especially as the societal norms played out in the pack. Since I couldn't understand their motivations, I never found myself connecting with Dani or Mason, or really the secondary characters. Maybe there is more to come - a future book in the series that will explain their culture more or the author will follow this trend of putting out a prequel - which might make this feel more fulfilling and satisfying. As is, it was a nice read. And, of course, the spanky scenes were sexy, sexy.

RATING: 3 Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries
