Review for No Remorse, by MaryLynn Bast
Due to her unusual birth, Amber has abilities no other werewolf has ever possessed. On the run since childhood, the lone wolf avoids contact with other werewolves at all cost, continually moving, constantly looking over her shoulder and always alone.
Everything changes when Amber saves a werewolf from the mere brink of death, Blake, the only werewolf to ever protect her. Love blossoms, but not without tribulations when Amber realizes she must help her new pack rescue a member who is being held hostage by a rival pack.
Warring with emotions of going from lone wolf to the pack leader’s mate, Amber must decide if she is willing to risk Blake’s life to know true family and friendship despite the fact that the Council is hell bent on locating her and will stop at nothing until she is found. Will Amber’s special abilities be enough to keep everyone safe?

I would say this book is more suitable for ages 18+ than very young adults because of the love scenes bordering on erotic more than YA romance (In my opinion). With that said I will begin my review, saying that I love the cover! That wolf moon is just gorgeous! ^-^ ...I have to admit the cover is what mostly drew me to want to review this book.
I love werewolf stories, especially those with a female heroine, so I was exicited to read this book. The book began with lots of information on Amber's past thrown at you, that at times became confusing. But after a few chapters into the book, the story began to take shape.
Amber is a werewolf on the run. Hunted by the council and used to being alone, with no pack of her own.
She's only known love once, and that was with Blake. A friend she made while living in a shelter for young werewolves, but because everyone she gets close to ends up dead, she never pursued the desire of being more than a friend with him...until years later when she rescues him from a wreck and he enters her life once again.
In love, and now part of a pack she now faces the challenges she's always run away from all her life. With her old pack and the council still searching for her, Amber must protect the man she loves and her new pack in order to survive.
This book is packed with all the paranomal elements expected in a paranormal novel. I really liked how author, MaryLynn Bast made her werewolf heroine possess powers not seen in other werewolf novels. The twist and turns will keep you wanting more!
I would have loved to rate this book 5 stars but because of editing errors, confusion in the begining with too many point of views thrown at you, and the very graphic love scenes (although the first scene was very well written, the rest I felt was too repetitive and lacked romance and for a hopeless romantic like myself it just wasn't my cup of tea) but the story in itself is a great read and I actually look forward to reading the second book.
I recommend No Remorse to any werewolf, paranormal fan.
