Wolf Gone Wild by Juliette Cross blurb

Wolf Gone Wild is Wolf Gone Wild is a sweet, fun, enchanting romp through New Orleans as shifters, vampires, witches, and other sorts of supernatural creatures go bump in the night.

Wolf Gone Wild is a departure from Ms Cross's usual intense, emotional reads but is a delight all of its own. If you're used to Ms Cross's previous books, you will find this quite different but equally enjoyable. The pacing is slower, with rich world building, a delicious build up of the relationship between Evie and Mateo, and fiercely passionate sexy times. You're going to love the pop culture references and if you're anything like me, you'll enjoy geeking out over Star Wars and comic books as well.

I love Mateo. He's alpha to the core with his wolf when its in charge but the man, Mateo, is sweet, kind, charming, creative, and beautiful. He's such a nice guy and so different from the persona of his wolf. Although, I have to admit, I love his wolf and how out of control and intense he is.

Evie is simply delightful. There is no other way to describe her. She's sweet, kind, fun, bubbly, effervescent, and simply a joy to be around. She's the perfect foil to draw Mateo out of his introverted self and to enjoy the world through her eyes.

Even though I found this story a little slow in some parts, I enjoyed the detail and richness of the characters and the depth Ms Cross delved into with them. I had to just set aside the adrenalin junkie in me and go with the flow. Everything happened in its own time and when the climax hit, it went off with a bang. I was suspecting everyone with every turn of the page trying to figure out who could be the big bad but Ms Cross played it close to her chest and the big reveal was a wonderful surprise. Nothing was what it seemed. What fun!

A great start to the new series and the new direction you're taking, Ms Cross. I can't wait for the next book.
