One night, Callum is driven into the woods by instinct, an instinct to protect… what, he does not know. Until he, in the form of wolf, meets a young, human child who he is instantly drawn to in a fierce way he doesn’t quite understand.

But in the end, she protects him. Then he finds this human child is his destined mate.

Sonia Arlington has lived a lonely life. She has certain abilities that make her strange and she has a rare disease that, if untreated, could kill her. Her mother and father are assassinated but before, her father makes her vow that she will never let others discover her abilities. This forces Sonia to stay distant from others, no family, no close friends and always guarding against exposure.

Then the intelligence leaks that Sonia is Callum’s human mate. He is now King of the Werewolves and therefore she becomes targeted by the wolves who have aligned with other immortals to enslave the human race. Callum has war on his hands and is forced to claim his mate and quickly integrate Sonia into a world that is strange and frightening to her.

As Sonia attempts to adjust, not entirely successfully, Callum attempts to cope with the knowledge that his mate is mortal. He will have her beauty and gentleness only the length of a mortal life and as werewolves only have one mate their entire lives, their union for him is unbearably bitter as well as unbelievably sweet.

Then he finds that due to her illness, her human life will be even shorter and he is forced to endure the increased bitter while doing everything he can to make Sonia’s short life incredibly sweet.

BOOK REVIEW: With Everything I Am

Kristen Ashley

Book Series: 


“Every day, I would wake up and think you were perfect and every night I’d go to sleep thinking, somehow, during the day, you got even more perfect. If I could have wished what I thought was my perfect mate on the wind and had her come back to me in a storm, I could never have come up with anything as exquisite as you.”

There is something very comforting about picking up a Kristen Ashley book. You know you will love it even before you start, you know she will rock your world and ruin all men for you with her delicious alpha male characters, and you know that once you dive into the story you will never want it to end. Once again, KA delivers.

In this second book of The Three series, the second Prophesy is fulfilled, where the King of Werewolves, Callum, finds his lifemate, Sonia, bringing this fantastical world one step closer to an eternity of peace between species.

Sonia is a mortal with supernatural gifts. She first meets Callum as a child while in his wolf form and they are immediately and inexplicably drawn to one another. Callum then becomes aware of their destiny together but Sonia does not. They live apart for thirty-one years, Callum patiently waiting for his mate to become a woman and to finally make her his Queen, while Sonia dreams of Callum every night, both as man as well as wolf, her vivid dreams soothing her loneliness, completely unaware that her dream man actually exists. When they meet again, they are thrown together by unexpected events, forced to rush what Callum always planned of making a slow re-acquaintance between them. Their attraction is sizzling, their connection unquestionable, but they are given very little time to actually develop gradual feelings for each other.

“You’re my mate, Sonia, my queen. … You were destined for me before you were even conceived. I’ve been waiting for you for longer than you can imagine.”

Callum has no doubts about Sonia’s role in his life, his attachment to her is stronger as he has known of her all her life and has had time to prepare for their future together. Sonia, on the other hand, is unable to fight her body’s response to Callum and her dreams of him only serve to confuse her even further, but she resists the attraction. Her misplaced conviction that he is taking her as his mate only out of obligation to his people and not genuine affection for her serve only to make her even more determined to guard her heart around him. Sonia struggles to accept his ways, his dominant and possessive nature, but most of all, she struggles to hand control of her life to him.

“Callum didn’t date. He didn’t court. He seized.”

What follows is an unconventional courtship between two individuals with very different ideas of romance, and a not-so-subtle battle of wills. Callum and Sonia might have been brought together by supernatural forces and pre-destined events, but their journey to become true lifemates is a bumpy and slow one. Their story is one of acceptance of their destiny and the pull between them, as well as of the unstoppable growing feelings for each other. They complete one another, in more ways than one, Sonia taming the beast in him by calming and soothing him, while Callum offering her the sense of belonging that she never hoped of finding again.

“I dreamed of you,” she whispered and watched as his body grew visibly taut. “Since I was a teenager, I dreamed of you.”
He said softly, “You know me.”
“In my dreams, you’ve been coming to me for twenty years.”
“You know me,” he repeated.
Sonia nodded a jerky, frightened nod.
“Do you understand you’re mine?” he asked.
She swallowed. Then she nodded again…
“Come to your wolf, baby doll.”

Throughout it all, we get an exciting and well developed storyline driving the series forward and keeping us at the edge of our seats, desperately wanting more. There is no way of describing the chemistry that Kirsten Ashley creates between her characters and actually do it justice. There is never any doubt in our minds that they not only belong to each other, but that Ms Ashley is going to take care of the hopeless romantic in us and give us an unforgettable love story. Her writing is original, flawless and utterly addictive. I always step away from a KA book with a ridiculous grin on my face – this time I also had an unexplainable need to be called “baby doll”!
