Wolf Hunger by Paige Tyler
Wolf Hunger - Paige Tyler

SWAT Officer Max Lowry, the youngest "pup" in the Pack meets Lana Mason at a police award ceremony and falls hard, fast, and furious. Luckily the girl is also a werewolf, so his nose tells him, so there shouldn't be any problems in getting with the program. Unfortunately, Lana has no idea she's a werewolf, she's the daughter of the deputy chief of the DPD tactical division...And a group of hunters is gunning for her, having followed her from Austin to Dallas.

What is a "wolf pup" to do?


Well, this is awkward. After six strong books, this seventh in the series left me rather cold. The action was still quite strong, though the suspense was lacking, there was the requisite sarcasm and snark whenever members of the Pack were in the picture...But the spark was gone.

To start with, I didn't really care much about the two protagonists. They sounded so very young (in fact, they were barely in their twenties), it bothered me a little. Their romance was also nothing to write home about, with the two seemingly merely going through the motion, without much feeling or emotion in the background.

The suspense and action could've saved it, but even these two elements lacked intensity and intrigue. Be it the DV case or the main hunters-related action, it felt lackluster and once more the characters didn't seem very involved. I didn't really feel the urgency and the approaching danger; even the final showdown was quite a let-down ending rather quickly and abruptly, the mysterious phone calls between the baddies merely whetting my appetite without delivering much.
I guess I'll have to wait for the next books (although if the hunters story arc is going to drag for nine more books, it will take quite an effort to keep my attention—it will most assuredly take more effort that this particular story managed).

What did "catch my attention" and what I am looking forward to that this book "started" is Zane's story. Keeping my fingers crossed for the poor Brit.

Wolf Hunt by Paige Tyler
Wolf Hunt - Paige Tyler

Remy Boudreaux had loved and lost before, and decided never to do it again. Life is much easier spent in pursuit of easy hookups. Then he returns to his hometown of New Orleans for a week of training with the NOPD SWAT, and follows a tantalizing scent through half the city, only to end up in a crowded club, face to face with his highschool best friend (and crush).
Triana Bellamy had a major crush on her friend Remy back in the day, and she doesn't think twice at experiencing what she's been missing in the years they've been apart.

When things start moving too quickly, Remy pulls away, and Triana is devastated. But she soon has another problem to keep her mind occupied. Someone is demanding her mother hand over a wolf-pendant necklace, and the PI she's hired might've stumbled on information that might solve her father's murder...


This book was much more romance-focused than the previous ones, or maybe it just struck me that way, but I didn't mind, since I happened to like this specific romance. Especially since it was the hero's turn to be a stubborn ass, refusing to let himself love his heroine in fear of her getting hurt (and in the end she got hurt even when they weren't together).
I loved both Remy and Triana, him with his scarred heart and fears of being cursed, and her with her inquisitive mind and pride that prevented her from begging for scraps from a man who supposedly didn't care.
It was a little heartbreaking reading about their struggles (Remy really was an idiot), yet reading about their connection was simply adorable. I loved them to bits.

Then there was the suspense. It might not have been as prominent as in the previous books in this series, but it still packed a punch, especially once it became clear that all the little dangling threads were connected. The villain's motive for getting the (apparently insignificant) necklace was a little out there, but the story was set in New Orleans, where things like werewolves and other beings that go bump in the night (not to mention naked men calmly strolling down the street) barely raise an eyebrow.
And the action, mostly that last scene of wolves chasing the car during a tropical storm, was gritty, intense, and vividly depicted.

The story also had the requisite heaping of secondary characters who either provided comic relief and sarcasm (Remy's pack mates—even Cooper made an appearance) or important information on the werewolf lore and werewolf hunters (Triana's mother and the villains).
That last "prediction" why the Pack is suddenly gaining members (either in the form of soul-mates or additional betas and omegas) was rather chilling, but I'm looking forward to the direction this series is taking.

I'm Moving Forward...

Hello all,

 

What have I been doing for the the past few months... Well, I've been hit hard and became a wee bit of a recluse.

 

The one major cause, the death of my son, which unfortunately remains unresolved over a year later. Simply, we are still waiting on doctors to get back to us and it's not happening. Horrible!

 

After unfortunate encounters at GoodReads with trolls and sadly a tinge of racism, I've decided that I'm moving forward and bringing all to here.

 

With an ever growing list of To-Dos, and health playing havoc, I'm slowly working to get everything going again.

 

ANNOUNCEMENT: The WynderMyre Memoirs, Novel One/Episode One is NOW AVAILABLE on KOBO UK in EPUB FORMAT as well as on PAYHIP via PAYPAL. See links here... https://linktr.ee/cedany.indie.author

 

Finally, I'm currently giving a final edit to Novel One/Episode Two, which I'm hoping to make available both PAYHIP and KOBO UK soon. Also, I have a surprise for my friends/followers/readers, hopefully soon but definitely June 2018. Merchandise such as a MUG for your favourite beverage, which will have the logo for The WynderMyre Memoirs.

 

Such wonderful logos, were created by our daughter and one has a black background, the other white with a jewel at it's heart. I'll be revealing said logos via my INSTAGRAM page once my store is up and running.

 

All I give, is peace, quiet and respect. I'm looking forward to continue receiving the same here.

 

I don't know, if I'll post again all the books I've read, but due to time constraints and my hopes to release more of my novel series, it'll be later on in the year.

 

Thank you for your support, it is very much appreciated and I'm hopeful you'll enjoy my quirky writing style -- be 16+ to enjoy this clean-read, British Olde English, Epistolary, Fantasy/Historical Fiction -- Young and New Adult.

 

Yours in blood, CeDany, BB, V-V!

Release Day Review! Wolf Moon (The McKenna Legacy #7) Patricia Rosemoor!
Wolf Moon - Patricia Rosemoor

 

 

RT Book Review: 4.5 stars TOP PICK 


Aileen McKenna came to the remote town of Wolf Creek to study wolves in the wild and ran into Rhys Lindgren, an enigmatic man with dark secrets and a connection to the local wolf pack. Frightened townspeople were convinced a predatory wolf was on the loose after three men were found dead in the woods. Rhys didn’t believe it any more than Aileen, and she intended to prove the wolves’ innocence. But would Rhys take her into the snow-covered forest to do just that? She'd have to be alone with him and trust him to draw out a killer…

 

 

 

The seventh book in the McKenna Legacy series is one intriguing read. It is full of anticipation building suspense that keeps readers glued to the pages and on the edge of their seat. The story takes place at a steady pace that ensures that readers are never bored and one that along with the wonderfully intriguing setting keeps readers aware that danger could strike at any moment. Aileen and Rhys are strong, compelling characters that easily draw readers to them and ensures that they want to know everything about their story. Their romance is sweet but full of anticipation as well while they each try to unravel secrets while they are facing an unknown danger as well. The town itself like I said is intriguing which adds to the suspense and adds a kind of mystifying fell to the story.

 

Patricia Rosemoor has a gift for making her stories seem intense and holding her readers hostage with hair raising suspense that sends delightful tingles of anticipation down the spine. This is the first book I have read of the McKenna Legacy but since the stories could be read as standalone that was no problem and the story certainly aroused my curiosity about the other McKenna and their stories so I will be reading them soon.
