What's the worst thing that can happen to a werewolf? Unable to shift for three months, Mateo Cruz knows all too well. His wolf has taken up residence in his head, taunting him night and day with vividly violent and carnal thoughts. Convinced he's cursed, he needs the help of a powerful witch before he literally goes insane.
Evie Savoie has always obeyed the house rules of her coven--no werewolves. They're known for being moody and volatile. So, when a distempered, dangerous werewolf strolls into the bar and almost strangles one of her late-night customers, she's ready to bounce him through the door. But the desperation in his eyes when he begs her to help him softens her heart and convinces her to bend the rules.
What Evie doesn't know is that Mateo's wolf has a mind of his own. And now that she's in his sights, he wants only one thing. Her.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
If this is what happens when Ms. Cross tries new genres then I will be making lists of things she can try her hand at after this. Wolf Gone Wild was everything I was hoping for!
Evie was the epitome of nerdish quirkiness and I absolutely loved her. She was funny, sweet and sassy.
Mateo, and Alpha his very present wolf part, are in desperate need of Evie’s help. If Mateo is to remain sane, then he needs to break the spell that is keeping him from being able to shift. Alpha is now constantly talking to him and pushing his need for blood and violence on him, making him literally schizophrenic.
Mateo was charming and sexy, with Alpha pushing the protective and possessiveness of a shifter to a whole new level. One of my favorite things in this whole story was Alpha’s interventions in conversations. They mostly had me rolling on the floor from laughing (except the haunted house scene… that one is h.o.t. HOT).
I must confess that I was waiting for a little more action as in other books by Ms. Cross, but the nerdy humor made up for it. There’s also a whole lot of new characters to get to know, as in all of Evie’s sisters, and I just can’t wait to get their stories!
I found Wolf Gone Wild incredibly entertaining and fun. With enough suspense to keep you guessing, hot chemistry and some sexiness, I absolutely adored Evie and Mateo’s (and Alpha’s) story.
Rating: 4.5 “Who wouldn’t want this big bad wolf” Stars
