Winter’s Guardian by G. Bailey
“When Winter started university with her best friend Alex, she didn’t expect to find herself in the middle of a supernatural war. Who knew saving a stray wolf could earn you the alliance of the pack.
To make things more complicated, the broody and very attractive Jaxson is tasked with keeping her safe from the growing vampire threat in town. It’s a shame he can’t stand her and enjoys irritating the hell out of her.
When she finds out her new boyfriend has his own secrets, can she trust anyone anymore?”

Then this is the book for you!
Before I get started there’s a major cliffhanger, so there’s your warning that I didn’t have because the book ends just as someone could possibly die.
I just don’t really know how to feel about this book. I feel like the book could have easily been cut and half and it wouldn’t affect the story; it felt like at several points, we were just going in circles that could have been let off out of the story because I really started to skip over paragraphs of words on more than one occasion.
Out of the guys, we meet Wyatt first, and he was very cool (not in the way of I want to be his friend but as in the sense of I know I’m above you). So I wasn’t sure how to feel about him at first, but by the end of the story, he was the one that I liked the most… maybe it’s be he was one of the four guys that got the most scenes in the book. He’s the type of guy that has to but this air up because of his heritage but is also hiding these emotions and they keep festering.
Then there’s Jaxson and I’m completely confused by him. There were a few moments where he was so sweet then the next second he’s cold and the stone walls are up again. Like you could get some series whiplash from this dude, and I’m very well aware of the his history he shared with Winter, but there’s other things that I’m not going to talk about but it has to do with him being a werewolf and her being a human and not being able to mate with humans if you get me drift.
I don’t even know what to say about Dabriel because he had little to no time in the book, and all I can say about Atti other than he’s like a nerdy bad boy who’s a relentless flirt. That basically all there is to those guys because apparently even though the play a part in the prophecy, they’re not important to this book.
Also, why can’t we have a book where the human is actually a human and not a “human” who’s something that rare who saves the world with those powers that has been lying dormant since birth?
By the end of the book, I was kind of frustrated that the story was so drawn out, Jaxson being whatever you want to call it, and the cliffhanger that came from left field
If you’re looking for a book to kind of get yourself started in the RH genre then would be a great start because even by the end of the book, we’re still to the part of who do I choose even those I have feelings for all of these guys (and the farthest anyone has gotten was kissing, so there’s nothing heavy romance wise).
Happy reading until next time,
