What's the worst thing that can happen to a werewolf? Unable to shift for three months, Mateo Cruz knows all too well. His wolf has taken up residence in his head, taunting him night and day with vividly violent and carnal thoughts. Convinced he's cursed, he needs the help of a powerful witch before he literally goes insane.
Evie Savoie has always obeyed the house rules of her coven--no werewolves. They're known for being moody and volatile. So, when a distempered, dangerous werewolf strolls into the bar and almost strangles one of her late-night customers, she's ready to bounce him through the door. But the desperation in his eyes when he begs her to help him softens her heart and convinces her to bend the rules.
What Evie doesn't know is that Mateo's wolf has a mind of his own. And now that she's in his sights, he wants only one thing. Her.
Wolf Gone Wild is book one in Stay A Spell series by Juliette Cross. This is a brand new series by Ms. Cross and it’s different from her previous work in that it’s more light-hearted and fun. Not as intense or deep as her previous work.
Evie Savoie is a talented curse/hex breaker. She works at her sisters bar/restaurant and also her other sisters book shop. She’s a well rounded women who is full of life, but also has some insecurity’s about her art work; which her ex-boyfriend put into her head.
Mateo Cruz and his wolf side Alpha. Cruz has always had control over Alpha, but something is blocking him from shifting and now things are getting out of control. He thinks someone has cursed him. He’s a loner and a wonderful metal worker.
The Savoie sisters. We meet several of them since the witches are a close nit family. Each has their own personalities, issues, and specialties with magic. I had fun meeting the Savoie sisters and look forward to more.
As for Mateo and Evie their romance was a slow build. Evie has always been told to stay away from werewolves and Mateo has this issue with shifting, so both are hesitant at first. We slowly see them moving out of their comfort zones and as they spend time together, they form a bond, a friendship which becomes more.
The romance was just sweet. Wolf Gone Wild was an enjoyable and light-hearted read. I really enjoyed the monologue of Alpha and how he drove Cruz a little crazy with his thoughts. It add humor and a few laughs. As to why Cruz can’t shift, well that mystery surprised me. I never guessed who it was and when it was reviled; I was like really. I had no indication it was that person, so the author did a wonderful job hiding who the bad guy is.
Wolf Gone Wild is a fun, light-hearted, cute, and magical read.

Prince Owin has come to take his turn in the search to solve his quest. The King will send him on his way with minimal resources and he must solve the quest to get the prize. Along the way, he only has his bodyguard as company.
Grimm is the most alpha of the alpha's, since he too is of royal blood. Having been assigned to the Prince, he finds it hard to take that he does not appreciate the canine creatures with which he has been surrounded.
Together, these characters go on a short but simple journey. There is some magical surprises and more creatures to be found. The characters are both fun and playful in their own ways. Such a sweet and yet sexy read. I give this a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
I read this a long time ago, 1.16.15, rated it on Goodreads, but forgot to write the review. Sooooo, here we are. I love the Goodreads cover, so that is the one I am sharing.
I read this back in 2015, but never wrote the review. I have a ton of notes, so that must mean I would be sharing too much. Don’t want to spoil anything. Ya know, a group of kids goes in the woods, I think we all know that some are going to be left behind.
Most of the characters left a lot to be desired, so it was hard to feel sorry for them. They are seriously damaged
I didn’t see where the story was going and I do love the twist. Brutal. I wanted blood and guts and gore and I got it.
I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Wherewolves by John Vamvas & Olga Montes.
I love this cover for Dead Eye by Alyssa Day. Any story located in Florida is always on my list, and it looked like such a fun read…free too. Be sure and check for the ‘0’ and pick up a copy for yourself.
With such a great cover and destination, I could not pass on this wonderful paranormal mystery that spotlights a shapeshifter, a tiger to be precise, an I can see how you die pawnshop owner, and an orphan girl, as the danger draws closer the mystery draws them together and I can hardly wait to read more from Alyssa Day.
