Just One Drop

Description Provided by Goodreads: Jennifer Adams, best friend to Jacque Pierce and Sally Morgan, spicy, out spoken, a little crazy and human...or so she thought. Jen has just found out that human DNA is not the only thing that resides in her veins, she happens to share that little pesky werewolf gene, although it isn't more than just a drop. Now that she and her friends are living in Romania with Fane's pack, she is also oh so conveniently stuck with the object of her affection, the fur ball Decebel. 
Drawn to each other by something they don't understand Jen finds herself frustrated by the lack of mating signs between her and said fur ball. Not only is she dealing with that not so un-frustrating problem, she now has been informed that because of that little drop of werewolf blood in her she is now required to attended a multi-pack gathering for un-mated wolves. This type of gathering hasn't taken place in over a century but with a shortage of females among the werewolf population the males are getting worried they won't ever find their true mates. 
Meanwhile Decebel struggles with the emotions he is feeling towards Jen. He tries to keep his distance but there is just something about the mouthy blonde that keeps him coming back for more of her verbal abuse that he just can't seem to get enough of...go figure.

Story Line: The book, as the description explains, focuses mainly on Jen and Decebel's story and I found this story line to be highly entertaining. Jen is an explosive character that finds trouble in any situation she is in. I enjoyed reading about the meeting for wolves because it was a definite change of scenery and a fun and creative idea for trouble. I also enjoyed reading about Jen and Decebel and I enjoyed that their story wasn't just one of accepting their feelings for each other and living happily ever after, which is predictable. I liked how this book wasn't like that and that it's story line had a major twist at the end.

Jen: Jen is the main character in this book and as always she is her funny and semi-inappropriate self. In this book we see another side to Jen, a vulnerable side. This isn't how her character was previously presented in the other past two books, so it was a nice change to her character. I loved her heroic and amazingly funny schemes. 

Decebel: I absolutely loved Decebel in this book because in the first couple of books he is known as the strong and controlled one, yet in this book he is most definitely not in control of his wolf, and I wouldn't have him any other way! (LOL) The chapters told in his point of view were amazing and they gave me a better insight into his character; they let me learn more about his personality and how much he actually cares for Jen. 

Jacque/Fane/Sally: In this book Jacque and Fane only have about two chapters written in their perspectives and while I know that this book isn't centered on them I would have liked more chapters in their perspective; however, I really enjoyed their characters in the two chapters. Sally has her own special moment in this book, which people who love Sally's character will definitely enjoy. I predict big things to come for Sally in later books.

Overall: Overall this was not my favorite book in the series. I do like Jen and Decebel and their story, but I can't say that I love it as much as Jacque and Fane's story. While reading this book I found myself longing for the romance of Jacque and Fane and their character's personalities. I understand that this book is for Jen and Decebel but I just love Jacque and Fane's characters more. I also would have liked for their characters to be included more into the story.

Rating: I would give this book a 6.
