Micah’s personality is a bit prickly and his mouth gets him into trouble all the time. Even his attempts at teasing his pack mates usually falls flat. That’s particularly true with his brother’s best friend, Rylan, a guy who he’s been arguing with for years. Part of the problem is the bad feeling Rylan has at being only half-were and at having his mother dump him off on the pack when he was a kid.

Micah didn’t realize how serious their animosity was until his alpha brother warned him to get along or else.  But before he can make amends with Rylan, he’s kidnapped. The entire pack hunts for Rylan but Micah is desperate to find him working himself into exhaustion, letting his judgment slide and even challenging his brother. It takes six weeks before Rylan’s found and he’s been severely tortured…maybe too badly to save him.

Should Have Put a Leash On It is the latest release in the Blood Moon Pack Alliance series by SA Welsh.  Due to the ongoing plot line and returning characters, it would be best to read the books in order.

Micah is a jerk at the beginning.  That being said, I enjoyed the way the author used the circumstances and emotions to change him a little at a time, turning him into a guy with a much nicer personality by the end. Yes, he still got angry and did stupid things but they didn’t stop me from liking him. Then there’s Rylan. His history with the pack is great background information and I loved the snarky, snappy dialogue between him and Micah. As well done as it is, I do wish that they could have gotten together in some other manner than being a torture victim.  But it was great watching Micah realize that the hurt and recovering Rylan was his mate…the hard-headed guy! 

The overall book is entertaining. It has a smooth pace, good imagery and I enjoyed seeing the previous characters playing prominent roles. I have no idea who’ll be featured next, so look for it, I will be.
