The Werewolf Whisperer: ¡Feliz Navidad!
The Werewolf Whisperer: ¡Feliz Navidad! (A Werewolf Whisperer Novella Book 1) - Bonita Gutierrez,Camilla Ochlan

by Camilla Ochlan & Bonita Gutierrez

 

This took a while to settle into because it was dialogue heavy and I felt there wasn't enough description or exposition to easily grasp what was going on right away, not to mention a few names beginning with X raising questions about pronunciation.

 

Eventually I caught on that all the chatter about make-up and wardrobe was preparation for a television appearance, wherein the werewolf whisperer was expected to give a demonstration. What could go wrong?

 

The author's note at the end also pointed out that this was related to a series. My feeling is that the Christmas add-on expected a certain amount of familiarity with the original story.

 

To me the plotting didn't really hold together, although I started to get to know a couple of main characters. I do have the first book of the series and will attempt to read that soon, but if it's as disjointed as this one, it might become a DNF.

 

We did get a werewolf transformation, but the strands of story were such that I couldn't tell you how that came out.

Halloween Bingo: Werewolves
Lila the Werewolf - Peter S. Beagle

 

Not particularly scary, almost a love story.

Kind of a sweet story, but not overly so.

Her mother is a bitch.

 

The werewolf does kill dogs.

Yes, I snuck one more in!
Cycle of the Werewolf - Bernie Wrightson,Stephen King

A skinny one, admittedly, but a book nonetheless. A reread from my childhood for Bingo, I remembered that this was one of King's books that has illustrations. I had forgotten how specific those pictures were. Not terribly horrifying by today's standards, but fairly graphic back in 1983. The storytelling is classic King, small vignettes making up a whole narrative, separated into months for this book. While King could have expanded this story into one of his epic books, measurable by inches, he chooses not to. The very spareness of the story and concise descriptions, the simple buildup and sharp ending to each "month" add to the impact of the story better than several hundred pages of narration ever could.

Magic & Mischief
Werewolf High: The Complete Freshman Year: Books 1-3 - Anita Oh

This boxset has three imaginative tales set in a high school full of magic and mischief. I don't read many teen/young adult books and was pleasantly surprised at how quickly I was pulled into Lucy's adventures at Amaris High. Each book finds Lucy in a new mess of trouble and takes her on quite the adventure. Reminiscent of the Harry Potter series, the stories are fast-paced and fun, the characters are interesting, and the dialogue and situations are witty and often hilarious, and the world-building is fantastic. Much like any high school, friends can become enemies and vice versa with bullies, cliques, and the rumor mill. It's a world of teenage angst (but not too much) mixed with magic and werewolves.

Review - Mate Hunt by J.S. Striker
Mate Hunt: An Alpha Werewolf Romance - J. S. Striker

Mate Hunt

Alpha Werewolf Romance

by J.S. Striker

 

Goodreads blurb:  A sexy panther shifter and an equally gorgeous wolf shifter are brought together in trying circumstances and can’t keep their paws off each other. 

Life as the ultimate shifter leader has never been easy for Dylan Masters, but he is an expert when it comes to navigating the very fragile world of supernatural politics—and now, he is in the market for a wife, one who will strengthen his ties and be at his side at all times. That plan is halted when shocking news arrives, and suddenly the wolf shifter who is used to sitting on his throne must now embark on a mission that involves dealing with a potential enemy, journeying through uncharted territory and meeting a woman who is all sorts of wrong for him—but feels all sorts of right… 

There’s a slavery business going on near her family’s lands, and that just wouldn’t do—especially not when Isabella Hart’s brother is a part of it. Like her clan, she doesn’t trust outsiders. But this time she has no choice, because she needs to do everything in her power to save her brother—including teaming up with a shifter leader who is too charming for his own good and may have more ulterior motives than he’s letting on. But what’s a woman to do when family depends on it? She needs to stomach it out—and not fall for the enemy in the process… 

Adult content. 

A HEA standalone HOT & SEXY shifter romance.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!

 

The cover is amazing and my favorite type of shifter cover with both beautiful beasts!

 

This is a standalone HEA shifter romance, but it does have some topics of child slavery and abuse.  It is for adults only due to the violence and steamy content.  It is about 175 pages long.

 

I really enjoyed the love/hate relationship with Dylan and Isabella.  The mixed shifter world mixed with some witchy magic makes for a very interesting read.  I think some of the Alpha attitudes needed a smack down, but they were Alphas.  Isabella is fierce, and I love how she kicks butt.  Dylan is interesting, and the dynamic between Alphas is tense to put it lightly.  Simon and Robin are interesting, and I think there is a story waiting to be written about them.  They definitely click!  I can’t wait to see was J.S. cooks up next!

 

I recommend this book to any shifter fan who loves a mixed paranormal world with Panthers, Wolves, Witches, and magic with an HEA ending!

 

Interested in reading???
