Series: Wolf Mates #1
Genres: Paranormal, Romance
Wooing a life mate can be hard enough for a wolf, wooing one while under the threat of a curse even more so.
Wooing a mate while pretending to be her dog? Nearly impossible.
After being drugged and captured by Animal Control, Max Adams is on Hoboken's doggie death row when his life mate adopts him, takes him home, and promptly names him Fluffy. While JC, in all her new-pet-owner-ness, feeds "Fluffy" vile kibble, dresses him in mortifying dog couture, and schedules to have his manhood removed, Max's human side gets to know JC. Especially in the biblical sense.
Hopefully well enough to make her fall madly in love, mate with him under the full moon, and move with him to Cedar Glen to live happily every after forever and ever amen. And fast.
Because the curse comes with a deadline...and the clock is ticking.
Fun, light-hearted PNR with quirky werewolves.
Thoughts on An American Werewolf in Hoboken
This book is one of those books that on the more light-hearted end of the spectrum. Sure, the potential was there for Max to DIE if he didn’t fulfill the terms of the curse, but the story itself skated on that light-hearted edge. I was mostly okay with that, but I did make a scrunchy face at how easily JC forgave Max for lying to her about a few key elements of their relationship.
Namely that he was both her overgrown “dog” and a werewolf. Well, that and his potential death at the hands of the curse.
PSA: Don’t lie about BIG, POTENTIALLY DEADLY CURSES to someone you want to be your long-term partner. That never ends well. Except in this case. But most of the time, it’s bad. BAD! So don’t do it.
Anywho… this book was mostly fun (remember, liars never prosper. Or something.) and Max’s big reveal gave me a bit of a chuckle. In other words, if you’re looking for something fun this should hit the spot. So, have at it.
