  Review by Sensual Reads

With Accepting the Alpha, JJ Black starts an exciting new series, Great Lakes Wolves. It starts off with a bang. Trouble is brewing and Kellen will need to work fast if he wants to save his mate and convince him he is the man for him. Watching these two interact made the reading exciting and fun. The plot adds danger and the unknown giving the story tension and menace. Exciting stuff and not to be missed.

This book is really well written and flows easily. Eli and Kallen are fantastic characters. Kallen is the alpha in the pack Eli is destined to join, with his best friend Jai. The whole pack faces evil coming from Eli own father and ex pack. Eli brother Noah is badly hurt in the process of try to get Eli back to his old pack. I'm looking forward to reading lots more from this series.

The chemistry between Eli and Kellan was steamy... I look forward to the next installment, to see where Black will take the storyline.

Accepting the Alpha is a great shifter story.  It has some great characters and an interesting premise. With suspense and a bit of angst, I found myself completely enthralled with Eli Steele and Kellan Reeves. They are both strong male characters and I loved that they found each other and were willing to work through all the issues that popped up.


I highly recommend this story, because it’s an interesting new world and I’m hoping the start to a new series. I really want to read more books in this world from this author.

I very much enjoyed this book and I'm looking forward to more by this author. Her writing is very gripping and, in my opinion, can only get better. Since I was pretty darned impressed with her first effort, I can only imagine how she'll grow. Great job, JJ!

The author brings the story to life with vivid imagery, details and strong charming characters that grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning.  The action is well written and orchestrated making it believable and easy to picture the events as they happen.


I found this werewolf romance to be a riveting and entertaining read with a few surprises and lots of spine tingling tension and sizzling passion.  I can’t wait to read more books in this series and about these captivating shifters.

  Review by The Novel Approach


This was a wonderful story and a great book for first time author JJ Black. I felt that the characters were fleshed out well, and the storyline moved along at a good pace…this one is a winner and a fabulous start to what promises to be a great series.

  Review by Literary Nymphs


I’m a sucker for werewolf novels and the blurb for this new series certainly piqued my interest.


…the author makes them into a believable couple and manages to do it during a time filled with danger, anger and betrayal.
