"A New Twist on a Werewolf Story..."
Personal Trainer Finn York, Has had it with werewolves! He
and his twin used to hang out and hit on the female
werewolves. Their favorite hangout to do both those
activities is the Wulf's Den. That was before. Before he
learned that there really are monsters in this world. He was
captured and experimented on by a psychotic werewolf,
determined to unlock the spell needed to turn humans into
werewolves. The spell didn't work, but the werewolf blood he
was injected with does, to an extent. Finn is
disgusted by the changes in his body, filling him with
self-loathing. He blames all werewolves for his condition
Jocelyn is a waitress at the Wulf's Den. She is also a
werewolf. She has watched Finn go from a happy-go-lucky
player to sinking deeper and deeper into depression. Every
night she watches him drown the memories and nurse his
hatred of her species. She doesn't understand what is
happening with him or why he looks at her and everyone in
the bar with hatred. However, Finn arouses her on a level
that no human should be able to and after one night
together, Jocelyn is convinced Finn is her mate. Finn
refuses to believe it and fights her at every turn.
Everyday he works in is family's gym, trying to work out his
frustrations. He has shut out his family and refuses to tell
them what happened to him, even his twin. He avoids their
concerned looks, especially from his newly turned werewolf
sister and her mate.
This couple has many things to overcome if their romance is
to get a happy ever after. Finn is full of hatred for
everything Jocelyn is. He also loathes everything he is
becoming. As if Jocelyn doesn't have enough to worry about
with Finn fighting their attraction and potential mating,
she also has to contend with rather biased family who refuse
to accept a mere human as part of their pack.
This was almost a case of the man being TSTL. Finns needed a
serious wake up call and Jocelyn is just the wolf to do it.
Just when you think everything is worked out, her family
steps in and challenges the mating. This is a very good
read, with lots of action. I love Finn's growth in this
story. From playing to hatred to acceptance to love to... well
you'll have to read it to see. I look forward to many more
books in this series.
