After being disowned and labelled human because she can’t shift, Betty Newman rescues unwanted dogs to fulfill her need for pack. Being rejected by her birth pack was enough pain for a lifetime and she’ll do anything to avoid subjecting herself to their prejudices.

Things change when Ken Birch wakes in her kennel still in wolf form and declares she’s his soul mate. His presence wakes her feral heart and makes her long for a life she can’t have. Old wounds are opened and she refuses to listen to instinct.

But only a shifter can be a soul mate and now her life is in danger by New Port’s pack. Either Betty learns to shift or she dies. Problem is the only one willing to help is Ken, the last person she wants.


Not His Werewolf is book two in the Not This series by Annie Nicholas. The covers are cute and story is insta-mates.

Each book in this series can be read as a stand-alone, but I’ve notice set ups for next books or reviles of things that happened in other books plus previous characters pop up. For me I’ve been skipping around in the Not This series and have no issues with not reading in order.

Betty is a shifter who can not shift and so pack law labels her a human. She has always felt like a part of herself is missing and that she doesn’t fit in, so she’s made her own pack by rescuing animals.

Ken is like the Good Boy next door. He claims Betty as his mate; before he realizes the implications. I enjoyed that he is all in on wooing his lady and going slow; because he knows he could scare her away.

The world Nicholas has created is filled with a verity of supernatural characters. I do like to see a verity of supernaturals. In Not His Werewolf we get to meet the werewolf’s. See a different view on the wolf pack and on Ryota the Alpha who we meet in Not His Dragon, and how rare finding ones mate is among them. We are also treated to some fun banter and Betty and Ken are great together.

Now I’ve noticed that the heroine’s in the Not This series are all down on their luck in someway and the hero’s are all well off and can swoop in and save the day. It’s nice to see the heroines fight tooth and nail to survive, but I’d like some change up. They all seem the same type of heroine. Same goes for the hero’s.

Not His Werewolf was another ok read in the series.

Rated: 3 Stars
