Born of Lies
Red Ridge Pack #0.5
Genre: Paranormal, Young Adult
Publisher: Boroughs Publishing Group
Date of Publication: 7/4/13

After one night of wild freedom, Lillian Michaels must decide between the secret of her werewolf pack, her family, her word and true love.
The world changed for Lillian Michaels the day Marcus chose her. Gorgeous, strong fierce…and soon he would be alpha of her werewolf pack. But then the marriage was set. No choice. No looking back. Except, she did. Lillian started looking forward, too, and wondering if eighteen was too young to give away her life.
Certainly, it is tonight. A rock concert. She and her friend, intoxicating music, sweat, bodies, freedom…and him: Paul. The human bassist’s touch makes her soul sing like the strings of his axe, and everything is possible. Yet, Lillian’s parents, her secrets, her entire world lies elsewhere. Paul doesn’t even see what she is, what she can do. What she must do. This to-die-for human is not of her kind. And yet, something special, something terrifyingly perfect, something eternally true has been…born of lies.

The last thing Allison Wright ever expected when she moved to Red Ridge, New Mexico was to come muzzle to muzzle with the wolf of her dreams.

Seventeen-year-old Allison Wright is convinced she’s losing her mind. Uncontrollable mood swings, hot flashes, and the urge to punch anyone who gets in her way are suddenly becoming everyday occurrences. Before her erratic behavior gets out of hand, Allison’s mother finally comes clean about her dark secret. Mom is a werewolf, and soon Allison and her brother Aiden will suffer the same fate. When Allison reaches her breaking point, the family leaves their life in Texas to move to Red Ridge, New Mexico where they rejoin the pack that Allison’s mother left behind almost 20 years ago.

Unfortunately, not everyone in Red Ridge is thrilled about Allison’s arrival, especially when she attracts the attention of the very handsome, very taken, soon-to-be alpha, Cade Walker. Little does Allison know, her mere presence is causing a rift in a once unified pack. Not only has Cade been forbidden from being with Allison by his father, the pack’s alpha, Cade’s girlfriend, Kendall Stuart, will stop at nothing to get Allison out of the picture. Well on her way to becoming the next alpha’s mate, Kendall expects to rule the pack by Cade’s side even if it means teaming up with a rogue werewolf with an agenda of his own. Determined to get rid of Allison permanently, when Kendall and the rogue join forces, all hell breaks loose and no one in the pack is safe, especially not Cade and his true mate.

Life has always been easy for Aiden Wright. He’s smart, athletic, funny, and the ladies adore him. But when tragedy strikes, Aiden discovers the truth about who he really is, and his whole world comes crashing down around him. Aiden thought that being a teenage werewolf was going to be awesome, but it might just cost him the one girl who could make him whole.

Since her mother’s disappearance, Teagan Rhodes’s life has been littered with her father’s empty beer cans and his hollow promises to change. Convinced that others would only let her down, she keeps everyone at arm’s length—but resisting Aiden’s charm is proving to be more difficult than she thought. Throw in a psychotic werewolf hunter out to terminate the species, and one wrong move, one wrong decision could destroy everything.

I have to say i loved this book - well novella!
I hadnt read any of the Red Ridge stories yet, so i know this is a prequel to the very first book, im hoping i havent ruined it for the rest of the series when i finally get around to reading them.

It brings us to when Lily and Marcus were teenagers and having fun, but then Marcus was lined up to be the packs Alpha (sorry- werewolves!). Lily stands by him but feels a big distance between them until she puts 2 and 3 together and gets 4 and realises hes seeing another girl.

But she cant just finish it. Pack laws have made it that Marcus and Lily WILL be married, love or not....which is a little sad to read - its so clear that neither want to be together.

Lily goes to the local fair with a friend who scoots off as soon as she spots a "hottie" leaving Lily alone and wandering around by herself. 
She sits next to a stage while a band warms up to play and finding herself enjoying the music she moves so she can see them....and in particular a certain guitarist/singer....who spots her right back.

Lily and Paul start to talk, and things develop.....
But Lily is betrothed to Marcus.
Shes a werewolf - something that should never be revealed to humans.
And shes in love with paul.....and miserable.

something needs to happen. 
Something needs to help Lily be happy - and in the knock on process...make Marcus happy too.

Great read, i'm now on the lookout for the rest of the books which i hope i can find! Want to read about the red ridge pack!
