    Okay, now that I ordered “Chasing the Beta” I’m finally emotionally stable enough to write a proper review. ;-P Well, at least I hope I so. XDWhen I first read about “Chasing the Omega” I just couldn’t resist pressing the “to-be read” button. I mean a book about werewolves and shape shifters that howl at the full moon? A mysterious gang and a hot Alpha? Damn! Count me in! *lol*”As I walk home in the dark, the rain no longer pouring, I look up into the night sky and notice the full moon.”So yeah, I wanted to read this book and I’m happy to say that I wasn’t disappointed. Jessica’s book definitely was a page turner and I swear if I’d have had more time I might have even read it in one sitting. =) It’s kind of funny because many of the things in this book were nothing new. I think I dare say that it actually used many of the typical young adult clichés but in my opinion this only made it so much more appealing. XD I was hooked right from the beginning and I think if there wouldn’t have been so many spelling mistakes I might have enjoyed the whole reading experience even more.Jessica, if you ever need an editor for “Chasing the Alpha” I’m your girl! *LOOL* I’d love to help you out! Really! I swear! ;-PJoking aside, I really enjoyed this book and I can’t wait to read “Chasing the Beta”! =) First I have to write this review though! So, here I go!The plot:Alice is eighteen, still goes to school and has a job at a diner. One night when she’s about to dispose of the diners garbage, a big wolf gets in her way, attacks her and even bites her in her shoulder. Of course Alice is too shocked to do anything about it and since the wolf vanished and she doesn’t feel all too bad, all she does is to decide that she needs to get some sleep. The next morning everything changes though and Alice suddenly finds herself in more trouble than she would have ever been able to anticipate! ;-) So far, so good, right?The characters:Do I still have to warn you that I’m going to spoil you in this section?! If yes: MASSIVE SPOILER ALERT!!! If you continue to read, it’s at your own risk! ;-PAlice: ”This shit with Max ends right now because when the next month is here we’re gonna have another dead body – that’s what we should be focusing on.”That girl is definitely something special. I mean she’s confident and shy at the same time and she definitely has a well-developed moral compass! XD It’s kind of funny how easily she accepts what has happened to her and even though she doesn’t want to become a monster she still seems to go with the flow. *lol* To say she was kind of contradictory wouldn’t even get close to the truth and I really can’t wait to see how she’s going to deal with every bitter lemon life has decided to throw at her. Will she make lemonade or is she going to break under the pressure? =) Ryder: ”He cups my cheek and whispers in my ear. ‘You really shouldn’t threaten an Alpha.’I love myself some hot Alpha and Ryder definitely is everything you could wish for. He’s protective, fiercely loyal and he cares for his pack. So yes, he’s basically the perfect Alpha and I instantly loved him for it. I didn’t understand his relationship with Silver though and considering the fact that he seems to care for his pack so deeply, I couldn’t help but wonder why he treats her like shit. I mean it’s obvious that she loves him, but all he does is to tell her that she was just a means to an end and that he never truly loved her. That hurt and it definitely didn’t gain him any kudos! Yes, I understand that he seems to have fallen for Alice, but Jeez! A little bit more tact certainly wouldn’t have hurt him! So yeah, I’m kind of torn whether I should like him or not. I hope the next book will be able to provide me with a better insight into his mind and that I’ll get a better understanding of what’s driving him. ”Maybe that’s because I care about her more than I ever cared for you.”Silver looks as though she’s been slapped. “What did you just say?”Max: ”I may not be good enough to pass as being a cool or tough guy, but at least I have the decency to treat others with respect. Fair enough if you don’t like me because truth be told I’m not utterly fond of you either, so the next time you threaten me or anyone I care about Silver, you won’t like the outcome. That I assure you.”Puh, Max is a huge question mark! I mean at first he seemed to be a nice guy and I was all like: Yay, a second hot boy!!! But the longer I read the more I didn’t understand him. I mean why is he healing so fast and why doesn’t he defend himself? He could have told Alice the truth, yet he still refused to say anything that would have made her understand. Why?! I don’t get it and I really hope that I’ll get some answers in the second book! Alice definitely isn’t the only one that’s confused and I really, really, really want to like Max!!! *lol*”No, I like the fact that you care about me, it’s nice to know that somebody does at least.””Alice, I’ve only been here a week and people are already calling me a liar. I’ve been beaten up twice for telling the truth and yet people still accuse me of being a liar. So I apologise if I appear to be a little pissed off about that.”Why Max!? Why are you healing so fast? Answer that goddamn question and tell us the truth about your mom and no one is going to call you a liar anymore!!! XDSam: ”You know what? I’m very good. I’ve been completely mind blown from seeing the size of a man’s penis today.”Oh boy! I loved that girl so much! Haha She was so honest and funny and I really wanted her to be a bigger part of the book! Since Bane obviously isn’t interested in her I think she should go for Kellan instead! That boy was soo cute and sweet and I really want them to become a couple!! Maybe “Chasing the Beta” will do the trick? XD I certainly hope so!!! They would make a cute couple for sure!!! ”Kellan lost a part of himself after losing Anna…”If I’m entirely honest I have to admit that the ending was kind of confusing though! I mean why the hell is Alice so angry all of a sudden? Is it the alpha slumbering within her that causes her to be like that? I really don’t know! Ryder made it pretty clear that he wants to be with her, but after Sam was attacked she was all like “Bitch-mode” and told him that she doesn’t want him to be in the hospital because he actually never cared about her or Sam!? Well, at least not until she was bitten and became a wolf. So yeah, I kind of understand her train of thought, in my opinion it was more than just illogical that it happened this way though. After all Alice obviously decided to be with Ryder even though she knew he never liked her before, so yeah, I guess you get what I’m talking about. Kellan indicates to me, “This is Alice, she’s …” “My girlfriend,” Ryder finishes for Kellan. They both exchange glances.The other thing that confused me was Mr. Edmund’s revelation. I mean I grasped the meaning of it but I still had to read it two times to finally be able to understand it all! *lol* The entire story of two men that fell for the same woman was damn confusing and I think I’ll have to read it a third time to comprehend it fully! XD I can’t help but wonder if Max is the son Mr. Edmund has been talking about and if yes this is probably the reason why he heals so fast? Well, it’s just a theory but I guess I’ll find out in the next book! Right, Jessica?! *LOL* And the ending?! That was sooo mean!!! I wasn’t prepared for a cliffhanger like that and after reading the final page I was like: NUUUUUU!!! There has to be more!! Where is the teaser of the next book!!! Gosh damn it, Jessica!!! T_T Oh well, I’m over it… NOT!!! XD”I lean over her with trembling lips, kiss her gently on her cheek and rock her lightly in my arms, while the tears continue to fall.That scene broke my heart!!! T_T Jessica Edwards, how could you do this??? How could you end your book like that?!All told I really liked “Chasing the Omega” and I can’t wait to read the second volume! =)))Jessica if you ever think about writing a book about faeries please let me know!!! I’m such a sucker for faeries and I love every story that features them! I’d definitely give you all my money if you’d write such a book!! HahaFor now I’m going to stick with your Omegas, Betas and Alphas though! *LOL* ;-P

    What would happen if a huge wolf bit you during a full moon night? I am ashamed to ask this question as anybody older than 6 surely knows the answer: you become a werewolf. This is exactly what happened to the heroine Alice Smith in the beginning. Her life changed completely right after this with some events she used to overlook before becoming sinister. A notorious school gang took an interest in her ensuring high school drama that would make Ancient Greek dramatists die of envy. It also seemed there was a serial killer in the town. In short, Alice could not possibly complain about her life being boring. First things first: this is a paranormal romance, kinda. So people that hate the genre with a passion should stay away from the book. I do not hate the genre, but I do not read too many of its offerings. Having said that the first thing I could not help noticing was that Alice is not a very special snowflake. She cares about her mother and - oh, horror! - helps her around the house. She remembers about other people's existence even with all the natural (for a teen girl) and supernatural happenings. Speaking about which I realized a simple truth about how to write a good teen girl people will care about. Do you want that written girl to be your (depending on your age) daughter/younger sister? If you would rather do skydiving without a parachute than have such a relative, move all the parts with her to trash and start over. A simple and efficient method. Alice passes this test. I mentioned the high school drama. Before this book the last time I was interested in such was in the first couple of seasons of Buffy Vampire Slayer. Please note that I am not comparing the two, their only similarity is that they both managed to be interesting for me. On the negative side quite a few themes were already seen countless times in other works by other authors. Still as a debut book it is very strong almost deserving 4 stars (it is actually 3.5, but I do not hesitate rounding it up because this is the first effort of the writer).

    2.5 I'm not sure what to really say. The premise is good and the execution is ok. I liked Alice, she was strong but sometimes acted to strong. I liked that it didn't bother her that Ryker was with Silver - hell she caught them in the actual act! I also liked that it DID bother Ryder that she caught him with Silver (he wouldn't have been bothered if it were anyone else BUT the fact it was her is what bothered him....I can read between the lines enough to know that she's gonna be his mate). However, I DON'T LIKE SEX SCENES OF THE H/h WITH OTHER PEOPLE SO REGARDLESS IF IT BOTHER THE h OR NOT I DIDN'T CARE FOR IT. Plus, Silver is part of Ryder's pack so she's always going to be there. It was also nice to see Ryder put Silver in her place...however, I didn't like that he used her for just sex (he said so himself) and then completely blew her off and acted like she was nothing. It was cruel. Finally...it was too quick for Alice and Ryder to have sex. She caught him having sex with Silver only a few days prior, had stated that she wanted sex to mean something and that's why she waited, hated Ryder for 85% of the book, but all of sudden - after someone she knows is killed - she's all "I want to be with you..." I didn't buy it.

    4/5Huge thanks to Jessica Edwards for sending me the whole series ❤️It’s been a while since I read a book focused on werewolves. I remember when I first started reading YA books the years were divided by category, there was the year of only vampires, the year of only angels, the year of only wolves… and that’s the main reason that I gave up with my reading habit. I wasn’t yet reading in English and it was so hard to find books with different topics. After all the time passed I finally found again the curiosity to read about specific themes and wolves is one of them, and when Jessica asked who wanted to read her series my hands were up in the air.Story time’s over, let’s get to the book.The story is pretty simple and very easy to follow and sometimes it’s just what you need. I really needed something exciting but at the same time “easy”.The characters are very likable and even if sometimes their interactions were maybe a little too forced I found all of them very focused and well built. The story develops in a nice way, we get the step-by-step feeling, so nothing is confusing, on the contrary is very well explained. The twists were very good, some of them got me completely unprepared and it’s so cool when that happens. I found the writing style pretty good too, it was very fluid making the book a very fast read. In some parts I found it maybe a little repetitive but maybe I’m confusing it as a “style/structure flaw” not a writing style issue.Being a first book this was VERY good, I liked it a lot, I found the story exciting and very interesting and in its simplicity, unique.This made me want to continue with the series and made me enjoy once again wolves' stories that in the past “helped” me take a step back with books.So, thank you Jessica 😉

    Chasing the Omega by Jessica EdwardsAlice is a new turned wolf and she hates it. She is coming to terms with her change and how that effects her life. She has to think about Her new relationship with Ryder the alpha of the pack, her friendship with Max and her hatred with Silver. This book is a fabulous paranormal thriller written beautifully.CHARACTERS- I loved Alice, she was just so great a character and I loved reading from her point of view.ROMANCE-I shipped Ryder and Alice so much, like OTP. I Also shipped Max and Alice and I think that there is an explanation for his lies and his secrecy. I think this could turn into a love triangle which would be awesome.PLOT-I loved the plot of this book! It was super cool and intriguing. I loved the include of fandoms like GOT and Gossip Girl which was cool.ENDING-All I can say is I need the next book NOW!Characters-9/10Romance-9/10Plot-10/10Ending-9/10Speed-10/10

    Alice is an ordinary young girl with a major problem. Being bitten by a wolf is bad enough, but when she starts to turn into a werewolf her life becomes a little more complicated than she would like. My favourite character in the book was Alice's friend Sam, as she was someone who spoke her mind regardless of who she was talking to or where she happened to be.Being an older reader I would have preferred a story with more focus on the horror elements & less on the characters relationships. However, Chasing The Omega is a remarkable achievement when you consider that the author is a 19 year old student. I think she may have a bright future ahead of her.

    Werewolves of London, well close anyway. High school shapeshifter's, mutilated bodies, sex, mystery; a lot going on in this first novel by Jessica Edwards. But all in all, it was quite entertaining. Good characters, some likeable, some not so much. I get the feeling her books will only get better as she goes forward. Anyone who enjoyed the Twilight books should like this. Look forward to seeing more from this young writer.

    Wow, what a great start to the series! This was definitely a quick but fun read. I loved Alice, she is what I like to read in a book, independent and fierce and not wanting men to look out for her. I liked how she approached every situation and every decision Ryder is an awesome character, even when he would argue with Alice, you could tell from the start he cared for her before it become obvious. I loved their relationship and I hope it continues to grow in the next book Bane, Silver and Kellan are also amazing characters even Silver who annoyed me most of the time with her obsession with Ryder but it was an awesome addition to the story. I wonder what she will do about Ryder' s honesty and I know it will be intense! Bane was annoying but I also liked him, he's tough but I think there is a gentleness inside of him and I hope we get to see it more, let's hope Sam gets it out of him! Kellan is sweet, kind and considerate, I really liked how Jess used a male character to have these characteristics instead of the typical female. Well done Jess! I really liked this plot, it was intense, full of action and drama. But what I really loved was the change and the shifting, Jess knows how to write it successfully. it was like I was feeling it too. we are left with such a huge cliffhanger at the end, can't wait to see Alice's revenge Received a copy from the author herself, in exchange for an honest review, thank you!

    Wow. I am pleasantly surprised that I loved this. Considering that I am not a big fan of shape shifters, that is. For a debut novel, Jessica Edwards has done a great job.In Chasing The Omega we see Alice, who is bitten by a werewolf - turn into, and trying to cope with - her new life as a werewolf. She gets to know of the mysterious gang of four at school, who have a reputation for being weirdoes. Ryder, Bane, Kellan and Silver take sudden interest in her, and Alice finds herself intrigued by them. On the other hand, there is a murderous wolf in town who has already claimed lives. When Alice sees that her dearest ones are attacked, she sets out to find the killer herself.- The book started off right along the path of action, and it was enough to keep me hooked.- In the beginning, as we are introduced to the characters, there is a lot of descriptions about each of them which was very difficult to follow, and which – shamelessly – I forgot everything about.- Like, why bother explaining a page on what each of them is wearing every single time?!- But the writing improved gradually as the story progressed, and I found myself enjoying every bit.- The romance seemed a bit rushed and I didn’t see much development there. It was confusing but interesting too.- I’m also glad that it wasn’t the main focus of the story.- The narration was done really well, but I didn’t actually connect with the characters emotionally.- Some of the parts were a bit disconnected. And the characters went from being mature to being childish in the split of a second.- But overall feel of the story was absolutely, POSITIVE.- And btw, I’ve started reading the next book.- Because, hell, the ending was compelling enough!

    This was definitely an anomaly for me; I'm not a fan of e-books, romance or werewolf fiction, all of which was an integral part of Chasing the Omega, but I loved it anyway because of how well-written the prose was and how complex its characters felt to me. This book on the surface is just your garden-variety werewolf story, but it runs much deeper than that.

    UPDATE: I think this was a really good start to the series, I'm kinda sad I read them out of order since I know now how the second one ends and it took some of the guess work out of it for me *shrugs* but overall it was good! A few typos throughout but didn't distract from the story. Awesome job Jessica! I look forward to reading the third when it comes out!oh my god, that hilarious moment when Jessica was nice enough to send me PDF copies of the two books and I read the second one first *face palm* I was so confused hahahaha Will start the first book tonight! (the second was still good even though I was entirely confused)

    ExcellentWhy do author's do that? Get you all excited, then bam, the book ends. She had me glued. I couldn't put the book down. Then nothing except for the annoying words ' to be continued '.The story is sort of a whodunit, mystery. Set in the paranormal genre. Wolves being the topic. It isn't fast paced but continues to build at a good, easy to follow speed. Then it just takes off in the final few chapters.I wanted to give 5 stars but the editing made it difficult to read at times. So a good solid 4 stars. Also, I'm in desperate need for book 2. If you want something different. A nice relaxed storyline and very likable characters then give this a go. Enjoy!

    Ladies and gents, hands down to Jessica Edwards.I mean I'm no big fan of fantasy, I know the idea is notcompletelynew, but this was certainly a page turner.The story is about a teenage girl, Alice, who has been turned into a werewolf, and she's obviously not that used to the idea, since the day she was bitten which led to all the transformations, everything changed in her life.Coming to talk about changes, let's give a shoutout to RYDEEEEEER And no, I don't think I was a big fan of Max, but I'll see about it in the next part of the series maybe.A very well done work that you did Jessica , good luck with the rest!

    4.5 stars. I love the story and I was able to get into it right away. Alice and Sam quickly accepted the existence of shapeshifters, but in my opinion it was kind of nice to get past all that, show them some evidence and get the story started. There are open-minded ppl out there who wouldn't bat an eye-lash, ya know. I didn't realize it, but I sat down to read a few pages and read the whole thing. The author kindly sent me a PDF, for which I am grateful. I'm invested in these characters now and glad to know Jess. She's a wonderful person who cares about her work and about everyone's opinion; good or bad. I might have been reading a draft, I'm not sure, but all I saw were just some editing issues. I hope she continues to write. I will continue to read and be a fan. (Oh and I really think if a person is going to leave a low star review they should at least put why. Just putting that out there. )Update: I loved some of the wolf rules she made in here. They were great. Especially with the eyes. I think that one was my favorite.

So sad, but I'm excited to see Alice's revenge.I really liked Ryder and can't wait to see how their relationship develops further. I LOVED the best friend, Sam! I always love it when the best friend is an important character, much like with her mum. Definitely will be reading the next book to see what happens! Thanks Jessica for sending me Chasing The Omega! 💗

    Actual rating: 3.5/5Alice is a normal 18 year-old girl who goes to school and works an after school job at a Diner near the forest. She has her best friend Sam (whom I like the most, she’s hilarious😆). Her life changes one night on a full moon as she quickly finds herself thrown into the supernatural world. I thought Alice had a little bit of everyone in her. She is shy, but confident. She follows her morals clear through the story and she seems to accept whatever is thrown at her and tries to make the best of it. I thought she was a great lead and has something that everyone can relate to.For a first book, I couldn’t have done it better myself. However, it was lacking in depth, and got a bit too simple & slow at times. But that ending just blew my mind. 💣 A real cliffhanger!I absolutely enjoyed this book a lot, definitely worth the time and I can’t wait to start reading the next one! 🐺

    Real rating is4.5 This book brought me back to my obsession with vampires/werewolves. Although no vampires in this, I thoroughly enjoyed the werewolves ❤️Plot: One day after work, 18 year old Alice is beaten by a wolf and around the same time, she notices that she’s starting to gain the attention of a group of students at her school especially the leader “Ryder”. She also realizes that her senses have become stronger. Ryder then reveals to her that she was not beaten by just any wolf but a werewolf and that she is becoming one herself. He also confesses that his crew is actually a pack with him being the Alpha. Meanwhile, there are brutal murders happening in Small Town(which is the name of town) with the culprit suspected to be a werewolf. Now Alice finds herself in a supernatural world where everything is not as it seems. The characters: Alice: The main character. The book is in her POV. I kinda found her annoying because she never listens! She was so stubborn but I kind of get it because I don’t like people telling me what to do too lolSam: Alice’s best friend. Sam is a free-spirited person with no filter. She does what she wants and doesn’t care about what people think. Ryder: The Alpha of the pack. He is protective to those he cares about even if they don’t want his protection (but need it) *cough* Alice *cough*Kellan: He’s a beta in Ryder’s pack and the sweetest character in the book. He’s just so nice and lovely. He was my favourite characterSilver: She’s also a beta in the pack. She’s in love with Ryder which makes her hate Alice when Ryder starts paying more attention to herBane: The last beta of the pack. He’s more on the quiet side although he always has a sneer on his face and looks like he hates everyone lol.What I liked - This book was fast-paced. I was interested in the storyline from the beginning to the end- I really shipped Alice and Ryder and loved all their scenes together- I liked the dynamic between the characters. I enjoyed their interactions which ranged from funny to crudeWhat I did not like - There were some grammatically errors- I felt like the reactions to some things were not authentic. For instance when Sam first sees the werewolves and their shapeshifting, there was no reaction from her except that they were naked lol. I expected her to be scared The murderer was easy to guess but i liked knowing the reason for their actions. Also, the ending indicated that there might be more to the story which I’m excited to find out about.Overall, I really enjoyed this and can’t wait to read the sequel ❤️

    3.5 starsFor a first-time, self-published book, I thought that this was executed well and the female MC was strong and didn't take any crap from anybody towards herself or her friends, and I love that the author decided to go in that direction rather than to have a weak female MC who can't speak for herself and depends on others to tell her what to do and say - she stood up for herself! The only reason I didn't give this a higher rating was, obviously because it was self-published, there are a few grammatical issues. The relationship between (view spoiler)[Alice and Ryder (hide spoiler)] felt more circumstantial rather than natural and even though the romance wasn't fully explored, the plot focused more on the romance aspect than any other theme, BUT, it's clear that the author has potential and I can see this series becoming really popular! I can't wait to see what else she publishes in the future!

    Book: Chasing the OmegaAuthor: Jessica EdwardsRating: 4 Out of 5 StarsI would like to thank Jessica Edwards for providing me with this free copy!Wow! What an amazing book! It has been awhile since I’ve read a good werewolf story. Chasing the Omega has it all. We have amazing characters, a little bit of romance, murder, and great story telling. I found myself pulled right into the world of Small Town. Once I was in, it was hard to get out. I have wanted to read this book for awhile, but was afraid to buy it. So, whenever, Jessica reached out on Goodreads with free copies, I found myself requesting. I was not disappointed. I have heard all of the wonderful things about this book and the readers are right. Chasing the Omega is a page turner. I found myself forcing myself to put it to the side so I could get some work done. While the book itself is nothing new, there was just something about this that I liked. Alice is a normal eighteen year old girl who goes to school and works an after school job. She has a best friend and is not popular. Her life changes one night as she walks home on a full moon. She quickly finds herself thrown into the supernatural world. I thought Alice had a little bit of everyone in her. She is shy, but confident. She follows her morals clear through the story and tries not to become a monster-even if one is in her. She seems to accept whenever is thrown at her and tries to make the best of it. I thought she was a great lead and has something that everyone can relate to. Ryder is the Alpha of the pack and our lead male. At first, I really didn’t like his character, but as time went on, he kind of grew on me. After awhile, I could see that he was loyal and protective and would do anything for those he cared about. However, I do not like the way he treated Alice. One minute he was kind and the next her was a jerk. We will have to see just how he does as the series progresses. Max...Hum...I’ll get back to you on that one. I just haven’t really figured him out. Sam, Alice’s best friend, is the human of the gang and I love her. I love her character and how she adds a sense of what normal life is like to the story. She’s sweet and really caring. Just a great character!Now, we do have a cliffhanger ending. There are no answers in this story. So if, you don’t like cliffhangers, then this book probably isn’t for you. However, if you are looking for a great werewolf story, then give Chasing the Omega a try!

    I really enjoyed reading this book .It's fast paced , Has interesting story line , Badass characters and Werewolves. What's not to like ?As a book of genre as famous as werewolves the story had a lot of common elements but the twist and turns kept the plot miles away from getting boring !!There were so many unexpected things happening in the story , Yet nothing felt rushed.I liked how the wolf hierarchy was mentioned straightaway .And there wasn't much drama that involved Alice denying who she had become.Alice Smith is a tough girl . I like that despite being a sort of shy and introverted kind of girl she isn't afraid to stand up for herself .And she takes no crap from anyone , Including the alpha Ryder.Rider is handsome , Strong and protective of his pack , He is everything that an Alpha should be . But the guy has some serious anger management issues .I get it , I get it ...He is an alpha werewolf so it is expected , but he goes around grabbing people's throats too often.Though he gives off this tough and bad boy vibes , he is very gentle with Alice a lot of times ( And I like that very much ) But the way he treats Silver , Though she is mean and bitchy it just doesn't sit well with me.My favorite in the pack is Kellan , He seems kind and nice. I was actually shipping him and Alice in the beginning of the story.But they aren't interested in each other in that manner .So my ship never had the hope of sailing !!I wish there was more of Kellan in this story .My other favorite character is Sam , The girl is hilarious and sassy . And she watches Vampire diaries !!If she were real we would have become friends real quick.I hope she gets Bane in the next story .The character that was a huge question mark for me through out the story , is Max . I liked him in the beginning but as the story proceeded further I don't know what to think of him anymore .But I still like him enough to hope that he isn't a completely bad character.The mystery about the ongoing murders in the small town is extremely interesting . I don't want to say much about it because I'm afraid I'll give away too much.But one thing is established , Alice's life is turned upside down in every possible way by the end of the story. And it just makes me wonder how much more shit can life hand to a single person ? It's just insane!And I can't wait to read how Alice deals with all this and emerges a victor.And last but certainly not the least , A huge huge thank you to the writer , Jessica Edwards for sending me the book(s).You are awesome !!

    Thank you to the author for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I haven't read a paranormal book since Twilight first came out so this genre is still very new to me. That being said, I really enjoyed the story and found the concept very interesting. Whilst I did enjoy the book, some elements, like the romantic storylines were a little predictable. There are some editing issues, such as grammar mistakes and words being repeated but all of that is understandable considering this is a self-published work. I'm interested to see where the story goes next.A full, in-depth review is on my blog! https://butlittlesheisfierce.wordpres...

    Chasing the Omega is the first book in a continuous series which is available on Kindle Unlimited.Alice is an ordinary girl who works in a diner. At the end of her shift one night everything changes. She gets bitten by a wolf. She finds out the truth of urban legends- shifters exist and she has caught the disease. The question is who was the wolf and why did they choose her? There is a murderer on the loose and people around town are dying. Another mystery to solve. Unfortunately for Alice one of her good teachers was one of the victims and his replacement isn't as friendly. Alice needs to learn about the wolves and find her new place in the world. Ryder is the leader of the local pack and Alice is about to bump heads with him. Alice's has a sassy relationship with her best friend making this book funny in places.Like I said at the beginning of this review this is just the start. An interesting read, but doesn't contain all the answers.4 stars out of 5. Kindle Unlimited read.

    Book: Chasing the OmegaRating: 4 starsAge Range: 14+ (for swearing and mature content)Note: I received a PDF in exchange for an honest reviewThe characters were awesome I thought Alice was just wonderful, super strong and didn't take any shit from anyone. Sam never failed to make me laugh either. I also liked Ryder, Kellan and Bane, and I felt sorry for Silver. The only part about him I didn't like was when he was an asshole and broke up with her in such a jerk. That was just uncalled for man!Interesting plot I was very interested in this book, it was quick and I definitely liked the parts about the wolf transformation, and just the wolf parts in general. I really love wolves but I don't usually read werewolf books so this was a first!My one problem is that there are some typos; comma misusage and tense inconsistencies. If these had been better fixed, I think I would have rated it higher. They didn't distract me completely from the plot, thought they mildly annoyed me.The age range there is a lot of explicit swearing and even some sex. I don't recommend to anyone younger than 13. Preferably 14. but who the hell am I kidding? I read so much shit with swearing/mature content that I am ruined for life. It doesn't really bother me. I think Jessica Edwards definitely has potential! I will be reading the next book and I definitely enjoyed this one! If there had been less mistakes I probably would have rated it 4.25 stars.
