Eli’s not happy about the fact that he has to take a wounded shifter to Stone Ridge for medical help.  It’s not that he doesn’t want to help the young buffalo family; he’s just embarrassed by the fact that he gets motion sickness.  The fact that he meets his mate while puking his guts out doesn’t help much either.

Dominating the Wolf is the fourth addition to the Kontra’s Menagerie series.  This is a fast paced story that picks up right where book three ended.  Both main characters are ones we have met before, so the author takes little time building their backgrounds and instead gets right down to the meat of this book.  Eli is his pack’s medic and he has no plans of giving up the road, he’s also a Dom and his strong personality is just what Sam needs.  Sam’s submissive personality has caused him to find trouble more times than not.  The abuse he has suffered at the hands of others has left him with many issues.  The author does a wonderful job, not only bringing these two together, but showing how Eli gently handles the young wolf shifter as well.  The connection between the men is strong, even if they did have a rocky start, and the passion between them is intense.  

Since the story takes place at Stone Ridge, the many secondary characters that pop up are ones readers will already know.   There is little real action in this particular story, giving Dominating the Wolf the feeling of an interlude as opposed to a major plot addition.  With several bikers still without mates, I am looking forward to seeing who the author will pair up next.
