Accepting the Alpha by J.J. Black

Can an Alpha wolf convince his straight mate to give love a chance, before  an unexpected enemy tries to rob them of all they hold dear…even their own lives?


Eli Steele is a wolf without a pack. An invitation from his best friend, brings him to Grand Rapids, and a meeting with the local Alpha changes Eli’s life in ways he ever expected.


Kellan Reeves, Alpha of the Grand Rapids Pack, had lost hope of ever finding his mate until Eli came to him, looking for a pack. Realising Eli is his mate, he feels things couldn’t be more perfect…discounting the angry pack Eli left behind. There’s also the insignificant fact that Eli’s not gay. It’s nothing an Alpha wolf can’t handle.


While Eli struggles to understand his feelings for Kellan, an unexpected call for help has everyone on edge. As enemies move in and a horrifying plot is revealed, Kellan and Eli fight back, not only for themselves, but for the fate of all shifters.

Review by Paulina Woods

I have a soft spot for M/M romance and because of it I am very very critical of any book I read. The two men have to be compatible in every way without one becoming less or being abused. If an author can bring two alphas together in a realistic way, I will return over and over to that author. J.J. delivered such a book when she wrote Accepting the Alpha.


I found each character very believeable and loveable, well except the villain and the jealous lover. As Eli fights his nature of Bata and Kellan learns to allow his mate to lead with him not behind him I become entangled in the plot. There’s danger, love and infatuation gone wrong.


Leaving just enough information out to make me need to read the next book I will be spending a nice part of my paycheck in the coming month.
