Alison's Pride

Alison's Pride was a good read. I enjoyed it and the characters. Alison has never really fit in anywhere because she is a hybrid. She is shocked to find her mate in Shea and doesn't realize what it is at first. When she does she is just fine with giving it a try but then she runs into his roommate Collin and when she feels the same she freaks. She calls her best friend and is told that she can be mates with more than one and that there is a possibility of her having a third. Alison is in shock and doesn't know what to do. She hasn't even met William, the third roommate but she can't imagine having three mates when she never expected to even have one. Shea and Collin have to work hard to convince her that they will take it slow, that they don't care she's a hybrid and that they will make the relationship work, even if she has three mates. She is pulled back into her past when she has to go save her third mate, William from her family. She is able to stand up to them but then she has to convince William that he wants to stay a shapeshifter and have a relationship with her. The characters are realistic for the most part, (they are shapeshifters). The story does flow nicely. The sex is somewhat explicit but not overly so. The story also does not focus on the sex so much as the feelings and relationships involved.
