ARC Review--Gray Bishop by Kelly Meade

Some people need something to fight for…

With the attacks on their homes escalating and human half-breeds seeking sanctuary among them, the loup garou are reaching their breaking point. Two, in particular.

After failing to stop his little brother’s kidnapping years ago, Bishop McQueen angrily broods on his shame, though no one else blames him.

Jillian Reynolds is still dealing with a tragic accident that took everything she ever wanted from life. And her attraction to Bishop is only making things more difficult.

When word reaches them that Jillian's hometown is under attack, the Alpha takes Bishop, Jillian, and a group of enforcers to assist in the battle. And it is in this chaos that both Bishop and Jillian will have to face their pasts—and the true feelings they have for each other—if they are going to survive…

I received this ARC from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, I was in no way compensated for this review.

Gray Bishop continues Kelly Meade's Cornerstone Run trilogy, this time with Bishop at the helm! I seriously love this trilogy so far! The characters are just so awesome! It's hard to say why I love them so much, but really, what it comes down to is great writing! Kelly weaves an incredible story and I loved every moment of it!

I like how we pick up things where we left off, with little time having passed by. Brynn and Rook are set in their happiness, but trouble and the triplets are still around. Big time! Bishop and his family, along with the rest of their pack are doing everything they can to stop the triplets, but these women are vicious and will stop at nothing until they get Knight back so they can continue using him to make more babies. Creepy much? There's more love for you there when an author creates such creepy villains, and that's putting aside the fact that these three are hybrids, that kind of viciousness is villainous on its own!

There's a lot to deal with in this installment. The battle with the triplets wages on and gets more intense as attacks continue to happen. They are hard to predict and every time our heroes try to get a step ahead they fall three steps behind, it's an ongoing battle, but one that promises to find conclusion in the next and final book, obviously! 

In the meantime, Bishop is trying to fight his growing feelings for Jillian, the Alpha female who's come to his pack's aid from a neighboring pack. Jillian isn't without her own heartache and misery, for we learn about her past in the first chapter. And not one character will be untouched by more pain and misery in this book. This book really packs the punches with all kinds of pain and shocking outcomes.

The romance though between Jillian and Bishop was sweet, yet different from Rook and Brynn's. Jillian and Bishop are both loup garous, so being together should be easier, but it's not. Jillian is the daughter of an Alpha and despite Bishop being the son of one, he's also a gray wolf, the more common wolf type and Jillian is more suited to being with a black. Plus, there's the fact that they come from two different packs and they are destined to lead their own pack...forming a relationship is destined for failure. But yet, this story will surprise you with its outcomes!

The ending was the real shocker, I mean we had shocks and surprises spread throughout. This one was jawdropper after another kind of a read. But the ending here really sets us up for where Knight will take over in the final book. Knight was going through his own issues in this one as well and you really feel for the guy after all he went through. Luckily, he has Shay there! And I soooo can't wait to see the two of them together in the final book!

Gray Bishop continues the Conerstone Run trilogy and packs a real punch with its shocking twists, turns, and outcomes! It makes for a thrilling werewolf read! I never grow tired of the "classic" supernaturals in my reading and am eating up the electronic pages of this series! The next one is sure to be an equally thrilling and engaging read! Read the first two books now so you can be caught up in time for the final release in January!

Overall Rating 5/5 stars
