Although this book was slightly better than Married to the Wolfman, I still feel trapped in a world of crazy with these books…


Dear Lacey (wife who is telling the story),
You are obviously a werewolf. Quit being an idiot. Its not mysterious; its obnoxious and it makes you seem incredibly stupid.

Why are you still not telling your husband that he’s a werewolf… and why can’t he figure that you by himself by the way? He’s a researcher. He’s smart, and analytical… What gives?

So… you suspect that your “dreams” where you’re a “wolf” might be a little more real than you think. And you’re pretty sure your husband murdered a guy, and brought back his cowboy hat…

The owner of the cowboy hat shows up at your house, and your husband assumes you’re having an affair. In order to diffuse the situation, so do the smartest thing I’ve ever seen you do…

“You’re both Werewolves!
…and I’m one too.”

Alright! Finally! Things are starting to get on track with this story line… What now?
Propose a threesome!


Wait, what?

So you’re going to screw both of them until they turn into uncontrollable murderous beasts? That’s the plan?

You’re an idiot. You deserve to get attacked by that wolfpack in the woods. You make poor decisions.

Sincerely,
Shurrn

P.S. This book has taught me that maybe I should refuse to finish bad books occasionally. I’m grateful that these were mercifully short.

WAIT THERE’S ANOTHER ONE?!?!?! NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

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?

What?

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”

Excerpt:

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.

A note from the author about writing this book:

I’ve been conceptualizing this story for two years now. It’s gone through many drafts and has been written in many settings before I settled on the first novel in this series.

Ultimately, this series is about discovering love in all forms… romantic love, familial love and the ultimate love for all creation. The series deals with loving someone who betrays you, loving someone who breaks your heart, loving those who disappointed you and how do you love two creatures that are so different at the same time, which emerges in book two of the Parched novel series titled, “The Seventh Sister”.
I hope you enjoy this series. I have to say that the story, the characters, the world is alive and unfolding in my head. And I can’t wait to put it all in writing.

Consider yourself Warned…

I’ll refrain from spoilers, but be warned. I’m not saying this was the worst book I’ve ever read, but I’m having a hard time remembering anything as unsatisfying as this book. The truly upsetting thing about the text is that it had the opportunity to be a very engaging story, unfortunately the writing style was awkward to the point of distraction.

I believe the description on the book indicates that readers are left “yearning” for more. If that is the case, it is only because the author rushed through the conclusion in the most fumbling and rushed manner possible. Truly disappointed with this book.

When Ariel’s friends convince her to go out for a ladies night with them, she doesn’t realize her whole life is about to change. She meets Blake, a handsome enigmatic man hiding a big secret. That’s alright, because she has some secrets of her own she has no intention of sharing. The problems start when the secrets begin to come out and their lives become hopelessly entangled.

Classic case of “Great Idea killed by Poor Writing”

The plot line had great bones, but the writing was just terrible – the author did not spin a single scene worth mentioning (I do try to include a few redeeming qualities in reviews for books I do not enjoy) I’m not even entirely sure that she tried to proof-read the text before publishing…
Names were switched in one particular scene,
Specific words were overused to the point of distraction,
There was way too much superfluous information about construction…

All of this is quite upsetting, because beneath all of this, the author had all of the elements of a nice Paranormal Romance… If she hadn’t fumbled all over the place…

Dear Crystal Dawn,
If you should ever have the opportunity to release an updated and fully edited version of this book, please let me know and I will happily re-read and re-evaluate my review. It has promise; please continue writing.
Thank you,
Shurrn
