Trying to keep her safe proves t Jake Silver is a nature photographer who just recently started displaying his works in local galleries, he is also a werewolf. Trying to keep her safe proves to be quite the challenge for Jake since Alicia is adamant in taking down the mobsters by herself and keeping Jake out of harm's way.
The character of Jake himself was well-written, sexy and captivating. He had a deliciously sweet side and I really loved him and the whole silver pack that was featured. They intrigued me and made me interested in their own stories. The pack atmosphere was well detailed and vivid; you could tell that the author knew what she was talking about when it came to wolves. And when it came to their sex scenes I actually skipped over half of them.
You're shocked, I know. LoL The reason being, they were redundant. It was the same scenario, same actions, same moves, each and every time. It was like these characters only knew one way to get it on and it never varied no matter how many times they did it. I was just unable to connect with the heroine or believe in their relationship which ended up dragging the story down for me.
I think if there was a different heroine, a better fit maybe for the hero, I would of enjoyed the romance more. However, there was some action, a few nice twists, and the world-building was excellent. I would say Dreaming of the Wolf was still a good read despite my problems with it and I have seen many glowing reviews for it, but it just wasn't my glass of wine. Though this will not be the last novel I read by Terry Spear, I will definitely be trying out her other novels in the Heart of the Wolf series just for the werewolves alone!

From Goodreads: "Werewolf pack leader Jake Silver is an acclaimed photographer.
He sees a beautiful woman at the art gallery where his photos are on display, and his intrigue turns into wolfish protectiveness. Alicia Greiston has never met anyone like Jake-he's sexy, alpha, and totally irresistible, and he calls to something primal in her soul. But when he sees a very attractive woman surreptitiously taking photos of a car's license plate on the same street, he's curious and interested enough to follow her into a restaurant.
It turns out she's a bounty hunter named Alicia Greiston and she's bound and determined to take down a couple of mob guys by herself, to keep a promise she made to herself when her mother was murdered by these same men. Jake, being the sexy, fierce, alpha werewolf that he is, decides to stay in town to protect her, even though they can have no future because she's a human and werewolves are not allowed to have more than passing sex with humans.
