I doubt you've ever read a werewolf romance quite like this book! It offers a fun new take on the werewolf romance genre, adding in a curse, a witch who bakes pies for the local kids, and a werewolf biker gang who is hoping to rope in a few women to add to their mix. While there is some sadness and scary moments, there is also a lot of humor and engaging conversations that made me laugh in the middle of all the madness. A great read for someone who's looking for something new and different!
Jack Crown is a lone wolf. Literally. Breaking from the Pack years ago, he maintains a distance from those who would have him be their Alpha. But when Jillian Perkins, his ex-best friend's little sister, walks into his motorcycle shop, that plan slowly begins to unravel. Jillian hasn't seen Jack in four years, ever since he let her brother join the military alone instead of meeting him for basic training as planned. Angry about his betrayal but still utterly attracted to his good looks, she soon reveals to him that she needs a motorcycle to save her brother's wife from the local motorcycle gang. Little does she know that they're not just burly men with egos - they're werewolves. And her sister-in law is in thrall to their leader, a connection that won't be easy to break. Jack and Jillian must now reluctantly join forces to keep her brother from losing the love of his life, and along the way, they may just lose their hearts.
Jack and Jillian (yes, they go by Jack and Jill) are a cute couple, albeit one with lots of issues. I had some issues with Jack from the beginning, since he seemed to just want to use Jill to scratch an itch for sex, even though he knew it could never work. But eventually things changed, and his protective instincts kicked into gear enough to allow a deeper connection between the two of them. My favorite parts of the book were probably when he and his friends were their wolf selves. It was cute how they were actually more like giant dogs than anything, and I especially thought it was hilarious that Jillian's father took Jack in as a "stray." Oh, the laughs I got with this book! Yes, it was dark in places, and there were times where I was scared for Jack and Jill, but ultimately it was an enjoyable read with amazing characters and lots of creativity.
I would be interested in reading more about the characters in this world, though I'm not certain if there will be another book. If not, I will just be eager to read whatever the author comes up with next!
