Synopsis (Goodreads):
Clay is a man of few human talents. As a wolf, he hunts well and can fight off a grizzly twice his size, but has no aspirations. The idea of a Mate isn’t something he has ever seriously entertained. Dreamed about, maybe, but he knows the chances are nearly non-existent.

Then he meets Gabby, a human girl. She hates him at first sight, yet he can’t let her go. Who he was is no longer important. Now, who he needs to become to win her over is the only thing that matters.
Thoughts on Clay's Hope: Oh, Clay. *swoony eyes and flaily hands* Hope(less) is one of my go-to reads when I'm having a rough day. It's fun and sweet and Clay and Gabby make me happy. Getting into Clay's head and seeing how their relationship progresses through his eyes was something I was looking forward to.

It didn't disappoint.

Clay isn't perfect. He acts on instinct and his instinct isn't always right (although it often ends up working out okay) when it comes to dealing with a human girl who's a little damaged and a lot untrustworthy. Clay doesn't understand Gabby's problems with men (her draw on them is downright freaky and really sad because it isolates her from nearly everyone around her in one way or another), he just knows he doesn't like her around anyone who could try to place a claim on her.

On her end, Gabby doesn't explain much of what's going on in her head. She's upset that this situation was forced on her and it takes her a LONG time to realize how she feels about Clay. Long time. Especially for poor Clay who only wants to cherish and protect her. Honestly, seeing Gabby's actions without the framework of her past experiences makes her seem a wee bit heartless.

I totally applaud Clay's dedication given that he doesn't know any of the things she's experienced in the past to cause her to have all those defensive walls.

Bottom line: I'm totally down with getting into the head of the other men who are the chosen of the Six. Clay might have stolen my heart first, but all the guys are sweethearts under their fur.
