Erotic Wolfy RomanceReleased 2006, 244 pgs
I read the previous book in this series, Wolf Tales, and for some reason decided to read this one anyway. I guess I remain an optimist always hoping for the best. Yeah, that's me. So it's entirely my fault that I wasted a week of my life trying to get through this unbelievably repetitive, boring, "big secret" containing, stinker of a book. I have zero patience for that used and abused old trope and for dull books but I read it anyway.
The plot, if you must know, is about a secret clan of highly sexual werewolves who work to combat terrorism (or something like that). The alpha wolf of the clan has raised his daughter Tia without telling her the secret of their race. He sends her off to school so she won't be anywhere near him and his pack. When she's well past the age of changing, he allows his top man Luc to initiate her into the pack which will include five other horny guys. Tia is a beauty and a full blooded werewolf and once given the correct supplements to "change" will become the alpha bitch for all of the men who drool over her the moment they set eyes on her. She will only be "mated" to one however. Her "soul mate". Yep, another crappy trope that exhausts me. So she'll get to sleep with them all but her heart will belong to only one. Oh, the poor, poor thing. But that's not what drove me crazy. It was this this: Luc accidentally did something terrible when Tia was a wee child but he withholds this oh-so-important (and potentially game-changing) information from her until the last infuriating minute because he's afraid to fess up. I need to punch him in the face right about now. I know, violence is never the answer but I despise weak ass characters and this made him a complete wuss to me.
Somehow I finished this book but I'm not sure why. It was a mostly vanilla, vaguely steamy romance with some bad words thrown in and there was only a small amount of kink. All of the weirdness that strangely kept me reading the first book was written out of this one and it read more like a post 9/11 espionage romance novel with some werewolves thrown in. Not really recommended unless you're a huge fan of the werewolf soul-mate thing.
