You all know how I am obsessed with paranormal fiction books 😀 . So it will be no surprise that I am reviewing this book. I realized that its been so long since I reviewed any book even though I read about at least 1 book a day 🙂 . I am somehow drawn to books with werewolves rather than vampires. There is something so sexy about werewolves and I love the fact that they mate for life 🙂 . So when my eye caught this one, I have to read this 🙂 .
Book 1 was good. I loved the heroine Mo. She is someone who moved to Alaska and starting her life all over again, even though she didn’t know anyone there. The book describes the relationship between daughter and her hippy parents. It is also about starting a new career and life in a new country. She is strong and tough enough not to freak out when she sees a wolf. She is also strong enough to defend herself from a robber with the help of the wolf. For me, Mo was more fascinating than the hero, Cooper. You begin to understand how difficult it is between daughter and parents if each has different values in life. You also understand the relationship between brother and sister. This book is about relationships in life and it has been beautifully written about them. Moving on, Cooper (werewolf) wasn’t that much fascinating, he is moody and rude. Mo realised that some of the murders which is happening is caused by a wolf. So they finally catch the bad guy at the end of course 😀 . This is definitely an interesting reads.
Book 2 was not so good. The heroine Maggie is the alpha of the pack and she is attracted to a human, Nick who is investigating about the wolf attack in the town. Maggie is tough and she has to make lot of decisions for the pack which others resent since she is a woman. So she has to face the sexist in the pack, have relationship with Nick and of course, find out who is trying to kill her pack members. That is a lot for her to take on. I found that it did start to bore me half way through the book 🙂 . So I did skip some chapters and finally finished the book just to see who the villain was 🙂 .
Even in Grundy, Alaska, it’s unusual to find a naked guy with a bear trap clamped to his ankle on your porch. But when said guy turns into a wolf, recent southern transplant Mo Wenstein has no difficulty identifying the problem. Her surly neighbor Cooper Graham — who has been openly critical of Mo’s ability to adapt to life in Alaska — has trouble of his own. Werewolf trouble.
For Cooper, an Alpha in self-imposed exile from his dysfunctional pack, it’s love at first sniff when it comes to Mo. But Cooper has an even more pressing concern on his mind. Several people around Grundy have been the victims of wolf attacks, and since Cooper has no memory of what he gets up to while in werewolf form, he’s worried that he might be the violent canine in question.
If a wolf cries wolf, it makes sense to listen, yet Mo is convinced that Cooper is not the culprit. Except if he’s not responsible, then who is? And when a werewolf falls head over haunches in love with you, what are you supposed to do anyway? The rules of dating just got a whole lot more complicated. . . .
Generations of werewolves have been secretly residing in a secluded valley a stone’s throw from Grundy, Alaska. So when a snooping Outsider comes to Grundy to investigate rumors of lycanthropic shenanigans in the area, the valley’s pack alpha, Maggie Graham, resolves to chase him away, even if doing so takes a quick bite on the butt. What a pity that researcher Nick Thatcher turns out to be so drool-worthy, and that his kisses make Maggie want to sit up and beg. Maggie just can’t seem to convince Nick to leave . . . and even worse, she can’t convince herself to stay away from him. Cross-species dating is problem enough for a harried alpha female, but on top of that, a rival group of werewolves is trying to move into the valley. With interpack war threatening, Maggie can’t afford to be distracted. Combining romance and a career can be tough for anyone; for a werewolf in love with a human, it may be disastrous. . . .
