My rating: 1 of 5 stars
Lacey is keeping a dangerous secret from her loving husband… he’s a werewolf. She’s faced with an agonizing choice to either tell him or leave him, during what might be their last romantic night together.
Warning: This explicit 3300 word short story is intended for adults only. Contains a gentle husband by day/aggressive werewolf by night, a strong-willed sexy wife, rough sex, and a romantic struggle (in more ways than one).
That’s right… I just gave my first one-star review. Trust me, I’m not happy about it either. Authors work hard to produce their work, and they deserve credit for putting forth the artistic effort to tell us their stories. I’m trying to keep that in mind, but this novella was a total bust. It was thirteen pages of absurdity.
Have you ever seen this meme?
Its the “Unamused Puppy” meme and I was making that exact face the entire time I read Married to the Wolfman.
The book starts off with Lacey terrified of her beloved husband who is turning into a monster every night – he has no memory of these changes. Apparently he is a researcher of some kind who was involved in a lab accident, which we can assume caused his dark shifting behavior.
She has resolved not to tell her husband that he is turning into a Wolfman every night and trying to kill her. She decides she’s going to leave him… But she decides to have one last screw… Because yeah…
Her husband begins his beastly transition mid-coitus, but provides her with an earth-shattering orgasm. Which is probably the only reason the next series of events could possibly make any sense:
She goes to the bathroom and discovers that her throat is covered in blood. After washing up she finds four puncture marks marring her skin and she’s so freaking cavalier about it “Oh, I guess I’ll be wearing turtlenecks for a while tee-hee!” This is the same woman who was convinced that her husband was going to slaughter her, but after finding herself covered in blood, she’s completely calm about the whole thing?
This little book is the launching point for Threesome with the Wolfman which I will be reading next (against my better judgement) because it comes next in the Shifter Romance Boxed set, and I seem to be incapable of marking a book “DNF”
His piercing blue eyes examined her, conflict splashing across his face. He’s getting suspicious. She’d always been a terrible liar.
“Are you sure you’re okay?” He was halfway through his question when she reached down, hooked her thumbs in her panties and dropped them to the ground. She laid back on the bed, pulling the hem of her dress up to her chest.
His eyes locked on her pale, smooth legs and tracked all the way up to her neatly trimmed pussy.
“I need to be serviced by my handyman,” she ordered, playfully. It was the game they used to indulge in. He would dress up in coveralls then ring the doorbell while she acted like the lonely housewife. Of course they’d always break the moment by laughing and just end up naked before they could get into their roles.
