244 pages. Good book, some m/m. Most times I don't like stories that have any m/m, but this story made seem like anything goes if your a werewolf.

The plot was interesting. The story moved quickly from a romance to a mystery. There was much more sex than I was expecting, especially the male/male sex and three way. I saw this was a re-release but not till the end did it say this was originally an Ellora's Cave book. I would have prefered learning more about the pack than just their sex life.

This book is ok, i wasnt expecting for them to act so "wolf like" in terms of "pack behavior", their touchy feeling each other just threw me a bit off, im not sure these wolf pack books are for me. I like the hot love scenes and the idea of finding your one true mate but alluding to or actually sharing just isnt my thing. Very well written book, great plot and character development, its just not something i would read again.

The literary level is not quite adult, but it is above the level of most adolescents under the age of 17. The sex scenes were a bit too numerous, repetitive, and totally lacked sophistication. Author's choice of vocabulary was often low class and denigrated what could have been a very erotic scene. Plot was good and the "who dunnit" aspect of the story wasn't revealed until near the last pages. All in all, it was not a waste of time and holds attention with a fast moving pace. ------ Leonard

It was a great book but I had to skip some parts because the sex scenes took up quite a bit of the book. It got monotonous after the first few times, but great storyline.

Title: Wolf's Ascension - Cherchez Wolf Pack Book 1 Author: Laura Dane Published: 2-8-2016 Publisher: Carina Press Pages: 214 Genre: SciFi & Fantasy Sub Genre: Paranormal Romance; Werewolves; Shifters; Erotica ISBN: 13: 9781459293519 ASIN: B017689RBQ Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley Rating: 4.5 Stars I received a copy of "Wolf's Ascension" from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review. Description From the Publisher: Attacked by werewolves. Mated to the Alpha. Declared a queen. Kari is having an unusual day. In the Cherchez wolf pack, loyalty is earned, not given. For Andreas, the pull he feels toward Kari cannot be ignored, a physical bond immediate and unbreakable—though Andreas wants to win Kari's heart as well as her body. But someone isn't happy about his new mate, and Kari's just beginning to trust him and the pack when attempted murder threatens their newfound happiness. Andreas brings out the deepest hunger in Kari, a sexy, passionate side of herself she never knew was there. And her new life as werewolf queen is turning out to be surprisingly emotional in other ways, as well. The bond she feels with Andreas extends to the others in the pack—others she's now bound to defend. And as the pack's enemies are about to discover, Kari will do anything to protect her new family. Previously published under a different title, newly revised by author - "Ascension" 2007 My Review of "Wolf's Ascension" I read this back when it was published in 2007 and enjoyed it. Although I appreciated the humor and the hot scenes between Andreas and Kari. I found the plot of a traitor in their midst the most appealing. I am going to have to go back and read the entire series again. The characters are well done and many layered. the plot is a little abrupt in a couple of places but runs at a fast pace. I gave "Wolf's Ascension" a 4.5 out of 5 rating. Not for readers under age 18.

I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review. I have read Lauren Dane before but this was my first venture into her fantasy romance. I enjoyed what I read from her previously. But maybe that’s because they have all been novellas/shorts, or the purpose of them was dirty delicious sex. This was definitely not one of her better ones. Unless you are reading it for sex. The short version: the plotline is an old tired one that is literally a dime a dozen. I felt that Dane used it just to have a plotline at all to further her characters relationship. Her characters weren’t very original either. This would have all been more acceptable had I felt the author tried but I genuinely felt that this story and these characters were created purely to have a sexual relationship. I will concede, however, that the erotica aspect is pretty well written. There are some non-hetero scenes as well as...sharing? So if you want something more vanilla in the romantic department, you should pass this up. If you can get past the ridiculous aspects and poor writing in terms of plot and characters, you may enjoy the erotica. You’ve been warned though.

Kari woke up in the hospital .She had been out for three days. She remembered a big dog tearing at her throat and then her stomach. Yet there was only bruising and internal throat damage. Andreas knew Kari was his mate but wanted time for her to get to know him before she was changed. But Michael changed all that. Andreas is an alpha werewolf of the Cherchez Clan one of the most important pacts in North America. Kari’s brother jack had been taking care of her since their parents had died he was fifteen she was twelve. So because of Michael everything had to handled just so and Kari needed to be brought to Andreas before her first change in three days. I absolutely loved this story. It was fast paced but then it had to be. The story and plot were absolutely awesome. The characters were off the wall especially Kari and Andreas and all they went through. Although I have to say I really enjoyed all the characters. I highly recommend. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.

Review: Before I picked this up for review, I had looked at reviews of the old version and people were kind of rough with their reviews, so I was a little nervous. I have read lots of Ms. Dane's books and could not imagine that this could be that bad and it was not. I don't know if it was the revisions or a different publisher/editor but I found this pack and story very intriguing. The pack dynamics and the back story of how the clans work had an interesting twist to them. The book surprised me a little too, at one point I thought the book was ending and then more mystery surrounding someone trying to kill Kari came up and the book kept going. My one problem was that Kari really did seem to do an about flip in a matter of days, she had been attacked, turned in to a werewolf and basically kidnapped and it still was a matter of days and she was "in love" with Andreas. That was pushing it for me. I did like that the further into the book we got the stronger Kari became and stood up for herself. This book is super sexy and just to forewarn there are M/F, M/M, M,F,M so if any of that bothers, you have been warned. Lauren really does a great job with the sexy scenes and I can always count on them being well-done. One other thing that threw me off was, the epilogue. It seemed to wrap up everyone's storylines, so I was confused when I saw there is a second book in the series. Will have to wait and see what happens in the next book. I enjoyed reading this story and while not my most favorite of her books it was well worth the read. 3.5Stars *Received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.*

WOLF’S ASCENSION is the first installment in Lauren Dane’s adult, contemporary CHERCHEZ PACK erotic, paranormal romance series focusing on the Cherchez Werewolf Pack. This is pack alpha Andreas Phinney, and IT specialist Kari Warner’s story line. Wolf’s Ascension is a re-release of the 2007 story line originally entitled Ascension. NOTE: WOLF’S ASCENSION contains M/M, M/F/M, and M/F sexual situations. Told from several third person perspectives WOLF’S ASCENSION follows the attack by a werewolf on IT specialist Kari Warner. Pack Alpha Andreas Phinney knows Kari is his mate but through stupidity and all sorts of others excuses the alpha’s cousin attacks and turn the woman who is intended to be the Alpha’s mate. What ensues is the acclimation of Kari into a tight knit pack of werewolves whose Alpha is a much beloved leader but a leader whose family has been targeted by an unknown source. WOLF’S ASCENSION looks at the pack dynamics, the rituals and the sexual exploits of the members but doesn’t delve too deeply into the our heroine’s back story. Kari is readily accepted as the Alpha’s mate but there are a few grumblings within the Pack that must be addressed before Kari ascends to the throne. The writing is simple; there are a number of grammar errors which I am going to presume should have been corrected from the original release. The premise is entertaining but don’t expect something life altering; the characters are colorful but needed more depth; the romance is insta-love/insta-lust story line of fated mates.

This book had minimal plot, no depth to the characters and is irrefutably unremarkable. Its just a book about sex and that wasn't even good. I've enjoyed her "Goddess" books so decided to read this. Dissapointed.

Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆ Throw away all of your preconceived ideas about werewolves, their legends and folk lore about them. Wolf's Ascension by Lauren Dane is a book in her Cherchez Wolf Pack series that will blow you away! Ms. Dane has created an amazing group of hunk-a-licous werewolves searching for their fated mates and strong alpha females as their counter parts. The best place to begin any story is with the top wolf, the alpha, the king. Andreas needs a queen and he has found her! His only problem is she is human and will have to be brought over to her Wolfie side. Only one problem the wolf he sent to watch over her, to protect her jumped the gun and started her transition. Now he has no choice but to kidnap her, keep her isolated until the full moon and convince her to accept him as her other half. No problem for a werewolf King, right? Why did she go down that alley at night? She knew that was not what she should have done. Nothing had prepared her for the agony and pain of the violent attack, but she would not succumb, she was a fighter. When Kari wakes up in the hospital and is told she has no physical damage to her body, she cannot believe it. The next time she wakes up the sexiest male she has ever seen is standing by her bed and it is not a hospital bed. Not only that, but he says he is a werewolf and she is one now too. Crazy right? How can she be a werewolf, his mate and his queen? Lauren Dane uses her vivid imagination to create not only a remarkable paranormal romance but also a story that includes drama, suspense, angst and really hot alpha sex! The interaction between the main characters add to the depth of the plot. I cannot wait to read more about the Cherchez Wolf Pack.
