Ann Smith loves her handsome, dynamic boss, Jasha Wilder, but her daring plan to seduce him goes awry when she encounters a powerful wolf who-before her horrified eyes-changes into the man she adores. She soon discovers she can’t escape her destiny, for she is the woman fated to break the curse that binds his soul.

Now MY take on it:

I FINALLY was able to read the first book of the Darkness Chosen series by Dodd.

As a self-proclaimed “dedicated secretary”, Ann has had a crush on her boss for as long as she can remember. She thought Jascha Wilder held the moon. That is, until one day she decides to take a surprise trip to his house. She decided that since he wasn’t home, she’d get nice and sexy. As she comes down the stairs, she sees Wilder turn from a man to a wolf. After that, it’s all downhill from there for her! From trying to keep Wilder getting himself killed to keeping an icon safe, life will never be the same!

I loved it, though some areas of the story were tucked in where they should have been somewhere else. But other than that, I enjoyed it. Once again, Dodd has surprised us with steamy sex scenes that aren’t raunchy but naughty in a way where you knew exactly what was happening. I wanted a man like Jascha! And I was glad to see what Ann finally stood up for herself and what she believed, even if it meant becoming the mate of a man who isn’t exactly 100% human. The end of the book leads it wide open for book 2 in the Darkness Chosen series.
