How to Date a Werewolf (Rylie Cruz #1) - Rose Pressey

OMG this book has been in my TO READ list since FOREVER! I can't believe I finally got around to it, and believe me, it should have been one I skipped. 

 

Rylie is a werewolf matchmaker who owns and runs The Find a Mate company. She's had a great run matching people together, that is until she takes on Lily, a crazed werewolf. 

 

Lily is furious her perfect date doesn't go as planned and goes to unthinkable levels to show how displeased she is with Rylie (picketing her business, and making T-shirts which denounce her business as well.) 

 

Rylie, along with her roommate, Jennifer, brush off the threats Lily makes and instead choose to spend their time ogling their new gorgeous neighbor, Jack. 

 

Both Jennifer and Jack are humans, and while Jennifer knows Rylie is a werewolf, Jack has no clue about the paranormal presence in New Orleans. 

 

During the middle of the book we find out that in fact, the whole government knows about the supernaturals roaming around, but they choose to keep that knowledge on the down low. 

 

Anyhoo, what follows are ridiculous events centering around Rylie dealing with Lily, and juggling her feelings with Jack - even though Rylie's convinced of a family curse that has doomed her into never finding true love. 

 

Ugh! I think what upset me the most about this book was not that the situations were utterly ridiculous, but that I read through all that nonsense and there wasn't even any sexxy scenes to make up for the lost time. Ugh. Live and learn. 

 

How to Date a Werewolf features: 

paranormal romance

YA 

kissing

werewolf

vampire

shifters

mystery 

suspense

intrigue

Demon Familiar (Wanted #1) by Bellora Quinn & Sadie Rose Bermingham
Demon Familiar (Wanted #1) - Bellora Quinn,Sadie Rose Bermingham

Demon Familiar is the first book in the Wanted series, and we are introduced to a whole new world, which I can't wait to learn more about. Neil witnesses the death of his mother by Bone Men, and runs away, needing to hide from both them AND his father. He meets Mal as he is trying to sell his very desirable, but distinguishable, car so he has funds. Mal and Neil have an instant spark, but neither of them act on it immediately. This just makes it even hotter when they finally do.

 

I love this couple of author's work - I don't think I've read a bad book by them. Yes, their characters may frustrate the hell out of me (which they know and laugh about!), but their stories are always interesting and gripping. The writing and editing is their usual high standard, the world building superb, and with a whole host of characters I can't wait to see more of - Merc!

 

A brilliant start to the series, with not all questions answered, so I can't wait to read more. Absolutely recommended by me.

Overcoming past mistreatment and reconnecting.
Wrangling James - Elizabeth Rose

I enjoyed this story. Mindy (Melinda) was trying to reconnect with family after a very rough past. She was a strong woman who did not fully believe in herself. With all that haunted her, she wanted better. James wasn't prepared for what was to come. He was caring most of the time as well as selfish at other times. The two complemented each other, and it was great as they worked out the history and their future. With some other sideline stories, this story showed how family can come together. I still have more to read in this series and look forward to doing so.

This is my unsolicited review.
