Title: Werewolf in Seattle
Werewolf in Seattle is a fun, flirty book that’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Paranormal chick lit seems to be the underdog in preternatural fiction but I for one can’t understand why. Sure, the story line isn’t exactly overflowing with profound meaning but, lets be honest, who expects an epic plot out of a book like this? Not me. What attracts me the most about this series is the high hotness factor, the easy-going plot and its overall cuteness of it all. This book is the perfect feel good read and when you throw in a couple of werewolves; I’m sold.
I found the author’s name choice for her main character a little over the top. Not only is this a werewolf book but Thompson names her female protagonist Luna. Talk about over doing it in the stereotype department! Although, I must admit that one of the reasons why I love these novels so much is because of their corniness. Vicki actually does make a connection between the heroine’s name and her mate later on which I liked. Anyway, name aside, I immensely enjoyed Luna as this tale’s leading lady. She’s driven, foxy and loyal; what’s not to love! Her background story is pretty touching too. I didn’t expect so much detail from this series but you won’t here me complaining. Werewolf in Seattle delivered exactly what I was expecting with a few added bonuses. That’s aces in my books! I was happy that there’s a nice balance between the main female and male characters. They don’t fall apart when their relationship goes awry which I found refreshing. Neediness is not an admirable trait to have.
Colin McDowell definitely lives up to his hunk status in this novel. I was über crushing on him from the get-go. The guy has a killer body, a smoking hot Scottish accent and a winning personality. Or, in other words, he’s the whole package! Oh, and did I mention that he wears a kilt at one point? Yeah, h-o-t! I liked how he always took the time to think things through before making an important decision. His “wee man” is screaming mighty loudly at him on several occasions but he doesn’t succumb to the heat of the moment. Now, you’re probably thinking to yourself: “wait, what? that doesn’t sound right”. However, given Luna’s past and the present circumstances his approach couldn’t have been more perfect. Colin is exactly what miss Reynaud needs even if she doesn’t know it yet.
This book has a little bit of everything in it. There’s romance (obviously), werewolf politics, drama, and even a bit of intrigue. I have to say that this is my favorite installment in the Wild About You series so far. I don’t think it’s essential to read the books in order but I do like that the heroes from the different stories are brothers who are facing similar qualms. It might be a small connection but it is one nonetheless. Werewolf in Seattle‘s playful storyline and endearing characters are a winning combination that’ll make you giggle and blush. Oh la la!
