Synopsis (Goodreads):
Jess knew her life would never move forward if she remained a part of Gregory’s pack. Some Alpha’s just don’t know how to take care of their wolves. She had managed Gregory’s bar for years but she knew he would never sell it to her.

After one giant mistake, he went from bad to worse. As a psychic, she knew it was a downward spiral.

Taking her future in her own hands, she contacts the Alpha in Edenton. He is happy to sell the empty bar no one has the time, nor desire to renovate, much less run.

Their attraction is unexpected and the last thing either want, but they find the only thing they need in each other.

There is just one problem. Slater’s second in command is plotting against him. Liam will use anything to take over as Alpha.

Plenty of werewolves, an old vampire flame, plus a paranoid second, and don’t forget the psychic with a whole lot of attitude.
My Thoughts on New Beginnings: Okay, yes. I can't keep it in any longer. I'm a little smitten with these snarly werewolves and the town they live in. They're equal parts strong, sexy, loyal, and not afraid to go toe to toe with each other when the chips are down.

Jess is a prime example of the type of feisty and strong characters that you'll find in Edenton. She knows what she doesn't want (another Alpha trying to control her) and she's determined to steer as far away from wolves and males in general as she can. She has her bar and she's willing to be happy with that.

Except... Slater feels a draw to her that he can't deny. Even though he's not looking for a lady friend, Jess worms her way into his thoughts in a big way. And then they get all touchy and things EXPLODE from there.

It's wonderful. Absolutely wonderful.

We get to see characters from book 1 peppered throughout and Jess's visions give us insight into what's to come. Yes, I'm smitten. Big, bad werewolves who are kinda cuddly underneath the snarls. I LIKE THIS!
