N. J. Walters--Isaiah's Haven (Legacy #2)

Paranormal romance-werewolf

Isaiah Striker puts family first, the pack a distant second. Which is precisely the reason he's in noisy, crowded Chicago instead of alone in his beloved woods. One look at the owner of Haven nightclub, however, and a simple favor for his brother turns into something else entirely.

Meredith Cross holds her small pack together with sheer determination. After years on the run, they hide in the glare of the city's nightlife. Isaiah may heat her blood, but she can't afford to risk the lives of the outcast half-breeds in her care. Once exposed, every bounty hunter and werewolf purist in smelling distance will hunt them down.

But when their sexual attraction spirals out of control, a moment's distraction is all it takes to lead danger right to Meredith's door. For Meredith there's only one choice: her pack.

But Isaiah knows his mate when he sees her. And he's not giving up without a fight.

{3.5 stars}
Maybe I shouldn't read a series back to back, but Isaiah didn't capture me like Alex and Joshua did. Not to say it isn't a great story. It's doesn't repeat the same plot line as the first book other than hiding/fighting/killing hunters and pure blood werewolves who attach them. Meredith is the alpha or her pack, protecting her own children along with the half-breeds she has adopted along the way. Isaiah, it seems is lost in the world, until he finds Meredith. This story was perfect for Isaiah's character, he needed to find his own pack, and his own way in the world. I did find myself skimming some of the sex scenes so I could move along to the action that actually moves the storyline. I understand the overwhelming need between mates, but sometimes its just not the appropriate time in the story to go "at it" on a desk. I would really be interested in how Meredith's pack evolves, her children are interesting characters and would make for a good story. This is a strong series, character development and storyline are interesting, and I'm looking forward to continuing it. (maybe after a break though)
