The Wolves of Forest Grove: The Complete Series by Elena Lawson

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I was never special.

With a sad backstory, an average job, and average grades, I probably would’ve gone on to live a very average life…if I never met them.

In a single night, my entire world came literally crashing down around me. I mean, I shouldn’t have been surprised. Bad luck followed me as irrevocably as my own shadow and it almost always came is threes.

  1. Dad died, leaving me to fend for myself.
  2. My boyfriend turned out to be an abusive jerk.
  3. A storm destroyed my only shelter.

That’s when they found me. One light wolf and one dark. The boy I’d always admired from a distance, and his best friend; the boy everyone in town knew to steer clear of.

Agreeing to stay with them is either the best idea I’ve ever had or the biggest mistake I’ll ever make.

One thing is certain, if I can survive the next full moon, my life will never be average again.

My Review

As a complete trilogy, this had me hooked from the beginning. I loved the damaged human mc, the paranormal introduction, and the young adult themes in this series. I found the direction the author took with the story genuinely fascinating and enjoyed the action and adventure in it. I loved the characters and the overall conflict and thought Elena Lawson wrote this series perfectly. 

Book One

Allie is on her own she lives alone with her deceased fathers hunting blind. She is seventeen years old. I’m immediately drawn to Allie; her strength and perseverance in this challenging time of her life are endearing. Her luck seems to have run out as she experiences a catastrophic event. But then the story turns excellent with an intro to a wolf shifter. 

Jared has a secret and but he also saves her life. Allie finds out the secret but runs away from it and Jared. Clay is very antagonistic and scary. She does seem to have some significant troubles. It seems Allie has some secrets of her own and some issues. I like Jared; he seems like a standup guy. Her life is filled with teenage drama and unfortunate events. However, this story is action-packed, with our damaged mc trying to be a heroine and running a lot. 

This book ends with a change from where it began, but I’m intrigued enough to read more.  

Book Two 

This book begins from Jared’s point of view, and this kind of sweet guy we have come to know is suddenly possessive. I also like the opposite image of Clay and Jared, and this book gets more complex. What will Allie do? Allie is a basket case as she doesn’t embrace the changes entirely, but her life has been turned upside down. By the end, she realizes what she is supposed to fight for and becomes a heroine and a force to be reckoned with. I’m not sure where this will go in the third book. But I enjoyed that the author kept this very Ya and no steamy scenes, which is very hard to do with the storyline in book two. 

Book Three

This book begins with Allie, Clay, and Jared agreeing. The power trip that is the Alpha in this book is so much worse. Allie is getting better at being an emotionally stressed female and relying on her mates for comfort. This story gets twisted as secrets come out and becomes a little dark. Grams in this book are very mysterious and cryptic. This book gets action-packed and has an excellent resolution sticking with the young adult themes and no intimacy described thoroughly or super steamy scenes. I liked how the author kept this series clean and focused more on her female character and the general storyline.
