BOOK TOUR INTERVIEW & REVIEW: Just One Drop by Quinn Loftis
Just One Drop
by Quinn Loftis
Grey Wolves Series, Book 3
Jennifer Adams, best friend to Jacque Pierce and Sally Morgan, spicy, out spoken, a little crazy and human…or so she thought. Jen has just found out that human DNA is not the only thing that resides in her veins, she happens to share that little pesky werewolf gene, although it isn’t more than just a drop. Now that she and her friends are living in Romania with Fane’s pack, she is also oh so conveniently stuck with the object of her affection, the fur ball Decebel.
Drawn to each other by something they don’t understand Jen finds herself frustrated by the lack of mating signs between her and said fur ball. Not only is she dealing with that not so un-frustrating problem, she now has been informed that because of that little drop of werewolf blood in her she is now required to attended a multi-pack gathering for un-mated wolves. This type of gathering hasn’t taken place in over a century but with a shortage of females among the werewolf population the males are getting worried they won’t ever find their true mates.
Meanwhile Decebel struggles with the emotions he is feeling towards Jen. He tries to keep his distance but there is just something about the mouthy blonde that keeps him coming back for more of her verbal abuse that he just can’t seem to get enough of…go figure.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Now that Fane and Jacque have completed the blood rites and are true mates, everything is going great. Jacque has even found out one of her best friends is part werewolf. But Jen is not quite sure how she feels about being a dormant grey wolf. It’s hard for her to feel anything, actually, except desire for the sexy, hotheaded Romanian Beta of the pack, Decebel.
Decebel finds it hard to keep his composure around Jen as well, especially when she runs off at the mouth as she is so prone to do. But Jen and Decebel have resigned themselves to the thought that they cannot have each other since Jen is not a true wolf. As such, Decebel and Jen must both attend an ancient gathering where single wolves attempt to find their mates–much to both of their dismay.
As always, I loved being immersed in the world of the Grey Wolves. While Jacque and Fane’s story was great, I’m pleased that this more gave the main focus to Jen and Decebel’s growing feelings for each other. It was entertaining but frustrating at the same time watching them fight their feelings.
Jen, Sally, and Jacque are at each other’s sides of course. I am so happy that even though Jacque is happily mated, she doesn’t spend every second of the day with Fane, and she didn’t abandon her friends. It was so heartwarming to see that Jacque and Fane are happy with each other and complete.
Jen was hilarious as always, and I found myself laughing out loud and even dropping my jaw at some of her schemes and comments. The way she tortured Decebel was awesome, and I really love that he seems not only to be able to handle a firecracker such as Jen, but to throw the attitude right back at her. What a hot relationship…absolutely dripping with sexual tension!
I did take one star away from this book, for a few reasons. First of all, I did not feel it was as good as the two that came before it in this series. Second, the plot line with Thad and the Romanian traitor was a bit contrived. The traitor’s reasons for betraying his/her pack were not only a bit weak, but it’s been done before–in book two. I also didn’t really understand Thad’s motive for hating Vasile so much. Simple jealousy? Not sure if that was strong enough for him to do what he did.
Either way, I really enjoyed this book and I’m very very excited for the next chapter in this series. I’m happy to see Sally finally coming into use, although finding out about how she, Sally, and Jacque really came to be what they are seems a bit too convenient. The end of this book left a huge cliffhanger, and I’ll be first in line to see what happens next!
My Interview with Quinn
I’m 32 years old. Married to my best friend. Have a five year old son with
the most contagious smile.
It is something that has always come easy to me and I love. I have always
had an over active imagination.
My husband gives me inspiration for the romance. And anything paranormal
gives me inspiration for the story. Anything is possible in the paranormal
world. I love that about it.
The Grey Wolves Series is about three best friends who discover that they
aren’t just American teenage girls, but in fact each have their own fate
tied to the males of the Romanian Grey Wolves, Canis lupis or were-wolves.
Each book draws more into their lives and stories, the men they are
growing to love and the relationships they are forging through the trials
of dealing with the super natural. In each book new characters are added
and new trial arise. It’s great to get to see each couple grow and change
and to see them mature.
Time management, lol

The three girls in my books are based off my high school best friends.
Working on Book 4 in the series Out Of The Dark due out June 7, 2012
Because I can create a world that could never exist and invite people to
explore the possibilities with me.
