The only thing that comes even remotely close to it is a strict “pack” structure and moving away from humans. In October I finished this book a third time. This seems to drive Vivian closer to Aiden. It is set in the contemporary United States. And after the fight Gabriel and everyone else expects Vivian to submit to Gabriel. She is being set up by Astrid. Hurt and afraid of losing her self-control, she jumps out of his window and into the night. This is certainly awkward. The protagonist is as full of self-confidance as Bella is full of self-doubt.

In this universe, werewolves only have two goals — to kill things and to sleep with things. I will never second guess blod again.
Now Gabriel, ahh I think he had some potential. There was a problem adding your email address.

Werewolf novels can be written much, much better than this see Kelley Armstrong’s Bitten. As if this misogynistic treatment of hers is not enough she is physically and mentally a total stereotype. Thanks for telling us about the problem. And how much do I owe you people. If you can’t get along with another species because they’re afraid of you, it’s alright to ditch them instead of trying to talk it out.
