The Cull series, by Renee George

Yes!!! This particular lady has written (among other things) a BBW shifter series!

Brief historical background on the cull: The cull takes place every 80-100 years in order to add new members to lycanosapien tribes. It is usually reserved for times of great strife where the culled benefit as much as the tribes. Invitees are usually terminally ill, desperate to get out of a dangerous situations in their lives, or extremely poor. Once a member of a tribe, the newly culled are given new (and extremely long-lived) lives. The last cull took place during the Great Depression with multiple cullings between the 1930s and the early 1940s. A natural born lycanosapien becomes mature enough to mate after his or her fortieth year, while a newly culled member of the tribe can mate immediately.

Claimed by the Alpha (The Cull #1) 

Blurb :
Anna Davis has accepted that her four-year battle with cancer is finally over. With only weeks to live, she makes peace with her life and makes arrangements for her death.

Twenty years ago, Anna fell in love with Conor Evans at the wrong place and in the wrong time. She’d had to make the toughest decision she’d ever faced—and let him go. Now at the end of her life, he’s offering her a chance to finally follow her heart. He has invited her to the cull—a tradition of transformation from human into a lycanosapien by “bite and blood.”

Anna has her reasons for refusing Conor, even if it means only living another month, but Conor refuses to give up on the only woman he’s ever loved—not without a fight. Anna has another tough choice—go back to her frail humanity or accept Conor’s invitation and…claim.

My review :
I have to admit... I'm a sucker for BBW stories!
This book is simply amazing...... You have the "oh no!!!" moments and the "hell YEAH!!" ones in perfect harmony. A reluctant heroine, a determined alpha hero and...... well I can't say anything else cause I hate spoilers :p.
I like the fact that lots of things are explained in this books, because it's the first of a series and it should not have the readers guessing or questioning what they read!
I would prefer it to be longer, but it is so fast paced, that it would spoil the book if it was elongated.

Protected by the Alpha (The Cull #2)

Braden Jackson wants Eve Taylor from the moment he sees her naked and confident, strolling around the tribe’s lands in the Ozark Mountains. The newly culled female is the only woman—human or lycanosapien—who makes him want to howl.

There’s only one problem. And his name is Tom Ellis. The first generation lycanosapien has more muscles than brains, not to mention some serious control issues when it comes to the human woman he culled.

Eve has finally escaped the unrelenting stalker who destroyed her life, and she’s grateful to Tom for giving her a new start within the lycan tribe. But it’s Braden who inspires her sparks-flying, inhibition-melting, mate-taking lust. Although it’s easy to desire him, it’s hard to risk her hard-won freedom to have him.

But when Eve’s life is on the line, Braden will do anything to protect the woman who’s captured his heart. Even if it means sacrificing his own. 


My review :
Another awesome book by Renee, with twists and turns! It is a story with action, romance and filled with amazing wolves that try to stake their claim on each other! Did I mention that I found it funny too???? I highly recommend it to paranormal romance lovers! ~ Kiki
