Review of "An American Werewolf In Hoboken" (Wolf Mates Book #1) by Dakota Cassidy
An American Werewolf In Hoboken (Wolf Mates Book 1) - Dakota Cassidy

I knew going in that this was one of author's first books (with parts worked into later books).  I have no idea how to rate it.

 

I enjoyed her finding and adopting her "dog" she called Fluffy.  Loved how quickly she became attached and how the werewolf that was actually Fluffy didn't have the heart to stop being Fluffy because she cried so hard when once thought Fluffy was lost.

 

I know I would have enjoyed the story way more if the worldbuilding that was introduced well past the halfway mark had been introduced earlier.  The whole curse, the nature of their pack that took in so many disabled or ostracized others, the politics involved ... all would have immersed me more and made me care more about the romance/mate part.

 

Parts were hilarious.  The sex scenes (often introduced at chapter start) weren't particularly interesting because I wasn't invested in the romance part and it was wrong he wasn't honest.  They weren't badly written or anything, I just skimmed them as uninteresting parts on the way back to the charming, funny story bits I liked.  Again, I think that was partly the fault of the romance/lust development lacking the context that got introduced past the halfway mark.

 

Not finished with the author.  Likely to continue series (one of those that sounds like each book changes the main characters) for the bits of worldbuilding teased in this one -- but not in any hurry at all.

Reading progress: I've read 1%.
An American Werewolf In Hoboken (Wolf Mates Book 1) - Dakota Cassidy

Just starting.  It was a random freebie on amazon from an author I actually read.

 

Getting a kick out of hapless heroine adopting a werewolf from the animal shelter and naming him "Fluffy."

 

Kinda cute, moving fast, some funny bits but uneven. I know it's one of her older books that has since been worked into others but it seems to unexpectedly chop in some sex fantasies and actual sex scenes that are a completely different atmosphere and overlong. 

 

I don't care about the explicitness or whether sex is or isn't in a book (so long as works/flows with the story) -- but, I think I'll be skimming over quite a few pages where I may or may not feel I read enough to review it.

 

Fluffy.  Ha! Ha!

Randomly just found a free kindle edition from a familiar-to-me author
An American Werewolf In Hoboken (Wolf Mates Book 1) - Dakota Cassidy

From book description:

"…After being drugged and captured by Animal Control, Max Adams is on Hoboken's doggie death row when his life mate adopts him, takes him home, and promptly names him Fluffy. While JC, in all her new-pet-owner-ness, feeds "Fluffy" vile kibble, dresses him in mortifying dog couture, and schedules to have his manhood removed..."

Review - The Witchy Wolf Trilogy by Alexis Dare
The Witchy Wolf Trilogy: A Fated Mates, Alpha Shifter, Paranormal Romance - Alexis Dare

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***Previously received review copies of the parts, but I own the whole thing now :)

 

Stalked

This is the first book in the series.  It is about 127 pages so take your pick whether you call it a novella or a novel because to me it doesn’t matter :)  It is for adults only due to the steamy content.

 

This book started with action from the word go.  Chloe is confident in some ways, but she has many walls to keep away the others.  Gabriel is a sexy Alpha in every sense of the word.  Their story is very well put together.  Plenty of action, mystery, intrigue, drama, fighting, and so much more that just pull you into the story until you are at the end saying Wow!!  I couldn’t put the book down.

 

Peril

This is the second book in the series, and I highly recommend reading them in order.  I think you will understand the characters and their background better if you do.  This is for adults only due to the steamy content.

 

I really like both Chloe and Gabe as characters, and they work together :)  Alexis’s writing is just awesome at pulling you into their lives and making everything come alive.  She threw in plenty of twists, turns, mysteries, kidnappings, and more to make it a wonderful adventure :)  It makes me feel happy reading her series :)  And mood always effects how you feel about a book :)  I could tell you more, but then that would ruin the surprises you would get reading it!!  I can’t wait to see what happens in book 3.

 

Cursed

This is the 3rd book in the series, and I’m not sure if there will be more in this series or not.  I really hope there is because I love this world that Alexis has created.  Hoping maybe to see the twins stories and Harmony’s too!!!  This is an adult only book due to the steamy content.  I do highly recommend reading the series in order because it is just better that way and you understand what is happening, characters, and their relationships :)

 

This book was the perfect conclusion to Gabe and Chloe’s story (though I really want to see more of them and hope this is not the end!!)  Lots of new twists and turns in this book!  Chloe and Gabe just make me happy because they are awesome main characters.  Chloe learns all sorts of new things about her new family which is pretty cool.  Alexis’s writing is easy to picture while reading so the images flow into your brain as you read.

 

I highly recommend this series to paranormal fans who like magic, wolves, witches, vamps, and other magical delights!  :)
