Phoenix Rising (ROAR) by Cara Carnes

Sometimes you have to crumble to ashes before you can fly.

Riletta knew hardship. As a shifter who couldn’t shift, she was raised in a wolf pack that ostracized her. She was ready to tackle the world when she was dropped off at the university with no identity, very little cash, and the only thing she wanted—freedom. The last thing she expected was for the university’s resident Alpha wolf to stake a claim.

Macen Giordano hadn’t expected the little female to bring out his protective wolf, but he’s not about to let university politics harm the innocent shifter. Riles may not be wolf, but she is his.

When prejudices threaten them both and shed light on her true nature, the two must survive the impossible to earn their destiny.

My review:
Riletta tore my heart out.  I felt so bad for her.  First the hell that was her childhood then the mean girls and nasty Dean at college. How she keeps on finding the strength to keep on keeping on amazes me.  Phoenix Rising isn’t a long book but it packs a lot into those pages.  There were a lot of fun secondary characters that I hope get their own story sometime in the future.  This is a wonderful tale of triumph over adversity with a bit of sex thrown in for fun.
