Unnatural (Holloway Pack #4)
by JA Belfield
Unnatural. One word to sum up werewolf Kyle Larsen—his mood swings, abnormal body, and choice of female.
The first two, he blames on the vampire venom.
The third, though? No, feline shifter Brook Nicholls was all his doing—a female of whom the pack will never approve.
As part of the Coalition, an organisation with even stricter rules than the pack and a rigidly warped sense of responsibility, Brook comes with a whole lot of opposition of her own.
No wonder the two of them keep their relationship secret for as long as they can.
Now, distanced from his family by his own indiscretions, Kyle’s left to fight battles he’s unsure how to win—some of them even against his own pack.
Is one woman really so important that he’s willing to defy his Alpha for her?
If his heart has any say in the matter, the answer will be yes.
I got a copy in exchange of an honest review
In my opinion this is the best book in the Holloway pack series so far. After reading the third book Caged I wanted to know more about Brook and the cat shifters and when I heard Julie actually has written a book about this I was beyond excited. Okay so it’s actually told from both Kyle and Brook’s perspective, but that makes it even better.
Even though I got interrupted a lot while reading this, as soon as I picked it up again I couldn’t stop reading and I wanted to read more and find out if Kyle and Brook got their happy ending or not. Even though it has less action than the previous books, it is really good. There is a lot of problems Kyle and Brook has to overcome and both families seem against them at first. The book starts off when Kyle and Brook already are in love with each other, although I would’ve liked seeing the feelings between them develop, I did like how the story started. A lot does happen in this book and I liked learning more about Brook and the cat shifters. I got angry at the cat shifters a few times, because really they are so strict and I don’t like how they treated Brook. I am sure there is a good reason for this, but sometimes I wished they would just act a bit more nicely towards Brook or even listen to her.
With every book in this series we learn more about the characters, while at the first book I had difficulties keeping the males in the pack apart it does get easier with each book. Although I have to admit that a lot of this book is about Kyle and Brook and the other characters play a lesser part and I still confuse some of the pack members with each other sometimes. I did like seeing Ethan from Kyle’s perspective especially because in Caged we saw Ethan’s perspective and after reading Caged I do see him differently. I did think Kyle acted a bit stupid sometimes and something I just wanted him to think things through before doing anything. He got himself in a lot of trouble that could’ve be prevented if he just opened up and told someone about it. I really liked the romance between Kyle and Brook, I think they are really good for each other and I liked reading about this seemingly unnatural couple.
The world building in this book is mainly about the cat shifters. In this book we get an idea of how the cat shifters life and we learn a bit about their society and the Coalition, although I still would’ve liked learning more, because I think it’s really interesting to get information about another supernatural race. Also there is something surrounding Kyle that didn’t got explained as well as I would’ve liked.
To conclude: I think this book is the best book I this series so far I really liked learning more about Brook and the cat shifters and I really liked the romance. I really like Brook and I like learning more about Kyle. The world building mostly focuses on the cat shifters.

This sounds like an interesting werewolves series. I think they’re not nice to Brook because that’s how things are when you’re the young one or the new one in the pack; the “seniors” will always claim their supremacy.

It’s a really interesting werewolf series in my opinion and it get’s better with each book.
