A fantastic paranormal romance.
WHAT’S THE BOOK ABOUT
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.
WHY YOU SHOULD READ THIS BOOK:
Juliette Cross’s Wolf Gone Wild is a delectable combination of werewolves and witches to produce a fantastic romantic read.
Mateo hasn’t been able to shift for the last three months. Consequently, his wolf has “taken residence in his mind” continuously taunting him and driving him crazy with suggestions of fighting every guy that looks him in the face or taking to bed any girl who flirts with him. He is just one step short of going crazy. Evie, on the other hand, is a Savoie – a family of powerful witches. Their coven has a strict rule – no werewolves. Why? Because they are temperamental.
So, when Mateo comes begging at her door, will Evie refuse him?
You already know the answer. However, Cross makes it worth your time to read this book. Two persons of opposite polarity—one a witch, another a werewolf; one an extrovert, another a loner—come together to make you fall in love.
The romance between Evie and Mateo is to die for. There is oodles of sizzling chemistry between them. It is a passionate, slow-burn romance, yet steamy and physical. Exactly, my kind of romance.
However, what I loved the best in this book was the third person. Yes, you read it right. The third person here is none other than Mateo’s inner wolf. (Let’s name him, Mr. Wolf.) Oh, boy! Mr. Wolf is so snarky, sassy, and humorous. Further, he is impulsive as hell. Hence, it was a treat to read the battle of wills between Mateo and Mr. Wolf. Mateo always tries to suppress the wolf in him so that he does not commit anything rash, but Mr. Wolf has a mind of his own, literally.
Moreover, a little folklore sprinkled throughout the story and serious action (at the end) involving witches, werewolves, and vampires further bolsters the plot of this book. The climax is satisfying too without any cliffhanger. Further, I can already see the beginnings of many more great pairs to emerge from Cross’ world of these paranormal creatures. I am keeping my fingers crossed to follow their love stories as well.
If you are a romance aficionado looking for a fast-paced, steamy, and breezy read to make you forget the world for some time, Wolf Gone Wild by Juliette Cross is perfect for you.
