Joker (Wolves of Angels Rest #2) by Elsa Jade

Born and raised in a clandestine paramilitary cult dedicated to destroying all shapeshifting monsters, Leela Jones has to prove her worth by testing her deadly new revolvers on the terrible white wolfman. Too bad he caught her. Even worse, she’s not sure if she wants to get away.

Vicious werewolf hunters killed Bastian Villalobos’ father and left him to run wild, dreaming of a someday revenge. But when that someday comes, it’s in the soft, quiet shape of a lonely woman suffering the same pain as him. She knows him in a way no one else does, and together they could broker a ceasefire between their people. Except not everyone wants peace.

My review:
Hunters killed his parents and werewolves killed hers.  She was raised to fight weres and he has a vendetta.  Leela is on her first hunt to prove that the weapon she has designed will kill weres.  Unsuccessful and captured by the weres she was to kill she is astonished to find that they may not be the evil she was led to believe.  Bastian’s first instinct is to kill the human but the new alpha wants change.  They want the killing to end.  Both Bastian and Leela haave a lot to learn from each other and if they fall in love along the way… anything is possible.
I enjoyed everything about this quick intense read except the title. I don’t get it. But the story Is well worth the read.
I was given a copy of this book for an honest review.
