Seventeen-year-old Tessa McCaide has come a long way since her abrupt entrance into the world of werewolves, but she still has just as far to go before she’s comfortable with turning full wolf. In the meantime, she’s avoiding the topic of shifting to four legs any way she can. Thankfully her mate, Dastien Laurent, is quite the distraction.

When she finds her best friend, Meredith, getting sick in the bathroom, Tessa knows something’s majorly wrong. Meredith was cursed years ago, and the dark magic kept her wolf dormant—only now the wolf is awake, and that same spell is killing her.

Tessa has no intention of sitting around while Meredith wastes away. Even if it means playing with magic she doesn’t understand, she’ll do anything to save Meredith’s life. Including bargaining with the local coven of witches and its crazed leader, whose only goal is getting Tessa to join the witchy ranks.

Can Tessa save her friend without losing herself?
Ever since I read Becoming Alpha I have been patiently (debatable!) awaiting Avoiding Alpha, and yes it was totally worth it! The cover is absolutely beautiful, so fresh and nature-orientated I love it!

Tessa is slowly getting use to the life of a werewolf, the only thing she has left to do is turn into a full wolf. However, all events are put on hold as her best friend Meredith takes a turn for the worse; her wolf wants out! So Tessa, who is also half Bruja, tries to save her life but to do so, she must come to an agreement with the head of the coven witches… who hate werewolves. How far will Tessa go to save her friends life?

Tessa is a fun and joyful character, she has attitude and can be witty at times making her positively comedic. Alongside her being strong and determined Tessa is loving and caring to most, making her an unforgettable protagonist.

The plot was perfect, it was short and sharp being straight to the point; there was no hanging around. I was also pleased that somethings didn't go the way you initially expected meaning Tessa's actions were surprising and different. I would like to also report that she didn't jump out any more windows, though I expect she shall in the future!

This was a brilliant quick read and I cannot wait for the sequel.
