Just One Drop (The Grey Wolves #3) by Quinn Loftis


Heat Rating

In Just One Drop there is so much more going on with the pack and with the Grey Wolves as a whole. There is an Alpha who from what I can determine is not mated and probably certifiable with delusions of grandeur wanting to take over the world and the only thing, in his mind, standing in his way is Vasile and his pack. Thad’s goal seems to be to create as much distraction and diversion as possible with in Vasile’s pack that he doesn’t see the threat until it is too late. I can honestly say I really didn’t like him at all. I think the thing that surprised me the most was the traitor in Vasile’s pack, I thought I knew who this traitor was but when she was exposed I was honestly surprised, I didn’t see that coming.

Jen and Decebel’s being mates was already a forgone conclusion by the end of the second book but it comes into focus in Just One Drop as we watch them fight the attraction to each other since they are sure they can never be together because of the lack of any indicators proving they are mates. It doesn’t help that other wolves are using Jen and her antics to antagonize her Decebel. LMAO I loved the plan Jen hatches for the guys that made a movie night out of the video they took. I honestly have to say it reminded me of the plan my oldest daughter and her friends hatched to get even with the 2 boys that had harassed them for 2 years. They went through proper channels and nothing was done so the girls decided to make up wedding invitations saying the boys were getting married and taped them to almost every locker at the school. When I got to the school and listen to them tell me why my daughter (the ring leader in this) was being suspended, I told the Assistant Principal at the time that if she had done her job in the first place and protected the girls from the boys, my daughter and her friends would not have had to resort their actions and there for my daughter would not be punished at home for it.

After reading Just One Drop which is book 3 in The Grey Wolves series I am convinced that Quinn Loftis maybe as awesome a writer as Laurann Dohner, who has also created an amazing world that could almost be real. If I were to compare the two authors I would be hard pressed because both do seem to pay very close attention to the details of their stories from book to book. Thankfully I am not comparing the two, because I can’t because one is a young adult writer and the other is an adult writer with similar genres but different styles both of which appeal to me.

Finally the rating, I want to give Just One Drop five-stars but it has enough edits to drop the rating by one star so a four-star rating is what I am giving this amazing book with it’s amazing world.

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.
