Alphas Gone Wild (Shifter Paranormal Romance Boxed Set) - Crystal Dawn, Selena Kitt, Catherine Vale Whitwell, Michelle Fox, Melissa Snark, Alisa Woods, Tabitha Conall, Kristen Strassel, Ruby Glass, Ariana Hawkes, Ever Coming

While lately I've been reading more anthologies to discover new authors, the reason I don't usually get into them is because they aren't usually full stories or the author crams so much into so few pages that I can't make heads nor tails of it. This anthology is a mix of complete short stories and parts of full stories, but was still well worth the read. All of the stories have a high heat index.
Touch of Alpha by Catherine Vale
This was actually a full story. Denver has the opportunity to become alpha. Rather than take the free pass that would give him alpha status, he follows his heart. While it was short, the author was able to put in enough for you to get a good feel for the lead male and female. I'll definitely be looking for more to read from this author. 4 stars
Pack Justice by Michelle Fox
While this was more a piece to a whole story, it was very hawt and very well written. You get a full feel for all three characters and are left wanting to read more on them. 5 stars
A Cat's Tale by Melissa Snark
This was my favorite of all the stories in the anthology. Both characters were well written. Jared was a total alpha, able to do what he had to escape and get the girl. Th only problem I had was the female lead. She kept going back and forth on her feelings and reactions and it drove me a little nuts. 5 stars
Wild for the Lion by Kristen Strassel
This was a part in a series. I liked the introduction to both lead characters and the introduction to this world. There aren't too many stories where the couple goes through so much rejection because of a mating. I look forward to reading the rest of this story. 5 stars
Masked Desire by Crystal Dawn
This was a full story with a lot of detail. While it doesn't really give her family's reason for her resistance, you get a full look into Luke's determination to claim his mate. I look forward to reading the rest of this story. 4 stars
Dragon's Dewdrop by Ruby Glass
This was a full story with a fair amount of detail. This story ok. I didn't feel like there was much detail on either of the characters, so I didn't really feel for them. 2 stars
Cat Lover by Selena Kitt
This was a full story. As with many of Selena Kitt's stories, this one was a bit different but very well written. It was completely in Sebastian's POV, which was great. It reminded me of a Twilight Zone episode. 5 stars
Ravished by The Ice Palace Pack by Ariana Hawkes
I'm not sure if this can be considered a full story or a part. However there really wasn't much of a plot, just fully on sex. 2 stars
Harvest Moon by Tabitha Conall
This was a full story with a full plot line. With all of the stories I've read from this author, they are short or in anthologies, but she always manages a hawt story that makes you want to read more from her. 5 stars
Getting Bear by Ever Coming
This was a full story with a full plot line. This story moved really quickly to give you enough to read. You didn't really learn much in regards to the backstories, but mail female was pretty funny to read. Also the miscommunication between the two was pretty amusing. 5 stars
