What would it be like to live in a world where you were considered abnormal even to those who were above the norm?
Jenna O’Conner is not human, nor is she considered the norm for the supernatural Other community that is benevolent enough to share this world with the humans. On her first day as the newewst member of the Wilmington Police Department’s SWAT Team, Jenna runs into trouble in the form of a deadly, mouthwatering man named Adam McPhee, who is also not human. He is determined to figure out exactly what Jenna is, which could very well put her life in danger. Furthermore, he is determined to have her all to himself.
As if that weren’t enough for Jenna to deal with, a group of extremist Shifters who consider humans to be cattle and who think that factions of Others should stay within their own species—never to intermingle—come to town. Jenna has to find a way to shut them down, but in the process of trying to do that, she discovers things about herself that even she had never thought were possible.
Who said the wolf was what you had to worry about?
Welcome to the real world.
Contains mature themes.
In the mood for a fun paranormal but not in the mood to go searching for a new book, I decided to shop my old Nook shelves. This gambit paid off since Big Bad Bite’s mix of campy humor along with shifter action and politics made it just as fun the second time around.
Jenna was quite the badass little wolf and extremely capable of taking care of herself, but because of her upbringing she also had and an innocent and naive vibe going on. I understood why she was hidden, but I didn’t get why she was not taught anything about wolf shifter society, much less anything about any other shifters. For a mother and uncle who were trying to protect her, they sure did leave her extremely vulnerable. It’s good the little Swat team member was tough and intelligent enough to find her way despite the way she was raised.
Adam was straight up alpha-protective and just the way I like them. I loved how when he figured out who Jenna was to him, he went out of his way to go slowly, even if it was to his own detriment. A hot, uber-alpha wolf shifter who puts his woman’s needs in front of his is my personal book boyfriend addiction. I just can’t get enough.
Along with main characters that I loved, this book gave me other characters that I want to know so much more about. Alec and Gabe seem sexy as hell (despite the fact that Jenna is allergic to cats) and just alpha-hole-ish enough to make me want them to get their own books. Kent is another mystery with his manwhore ways and I hope he falls hard some day. He deserves it.
The humor had me cracking up, the sexy times were hot, and there was lots of action to keep me from getting bored. I’ll be checking to see if I bought any more of this series soon.
