Born to be Wild Review

Title: Born to be Wild

Author: Christine Warren

Book: (Novels of the Others, #15)

Pages: 325

Rating: 4/5

Don't worry about it being the fifteenth in the series! It is just about the same topic as the others in the series. The characters (I believe) are different. I found this in Dollar General since I had nothing else to do until the Post Office opened. I even ended up enjoying it despite the sex scenes. Yes, there were quite a few (3 or more I think) in the book but it didn't change my love for the book.
Josie is just a normal vet caring for her patients till one night Sheriff Eli Pace burst carrying a wounded Lupine for her to take care of. She has never taken care of Others before but she is determined to help this Lupine. When the Lupine's husband (Bill) shows up they learn that her name is Rosemary and soon after both of the Lupine's are infected with some sort of virus and unable to change into human form.
While this is going on Eli discovers that Josie is his mate and he falls hard for her. Their relationship progresses after a few days and they move into the bedroom. Josie never though she'd fall for a Feline. Especially not Eli Pace but that is exactly what is happening. When they are attacked in bed Eli fights and wins against the human but the two of them get into a fight. (silly stuff) After that she gets a call saying that Bill has escaped and something terrible has happened to Rosemary.
Eli's doctor friend (Steve) from the army shows up and they find that the strain of virus has not only been created only to hurt Lupines, but another strain targets Felines also. Now is the time the mad scramble sets in to find the men responsible for this and to find a cure before it's too late.
Will they make it in time? Who dies? Will Others now become a danger to the world? Who will end this?
I loved this book so much! Sure it was a bit slow in parts and the arguments were so weird (no I love you but you don't have to say anything yet. pishposh!) but the story line was good. Some of the sections of the book were confusing but that was because I was not sure what was going on and I am not a doctor of any kind. I am so glad I found this book though! :D

About The Author

Born and raised in coastal New England, Christine Warren lived in the South and the Mid-Atlantic before hopping to the other side of the country to take up the life of a transplant in the Pacific Northwest. She completely bypassed those states in the middle due to her land locking phobia. Hmm, need to research a scientific term for that...
When not scrambling frantically to complete her latest writing project, Christine spends most of her time as a crazy animal lady, hanging out with her dog Levi (he’s the one with the hair) and pretending to train him to have some manners. She also hangs out with her horse, Cal—a thoroughbred with a craving for strawberry liquorice twists—her good dog, Merlin; and her best friend, fellow author Hannah Murray. In addition to playing with her pets, Christine’s hobbies include identifying dog breeds from photos of their underbellies, appreciating fine and not-so-fine wines, shopping for the perfect pair of Christian Louboutin shoes, and most of all reading things someone else had to agonize over.
She enjoys hearing from readers and can be reached via email sent to or by postal mail to Christine Warren, PO Box 871900, Vancouver, WA 98687-1900.
