Now here’s a werewolf story that I actually enjoyed. To a degree. While it had a few flaws (overuse of nicknames, typical wolf pack-styled werewolf dynamics, and love at first sight), it was stylistically well-written and fun, and this author has a lot of potential. The romance was simple and actually caused some interesting and unexpected conflict. I was a bit disappointed that the readers missed out on the flirty, playful build-up of a relationship due to fate; but I suppose for the shortness of the story, this can be forgiven.
This story was intended to be a coming out kind of tale in two ways: First of all, Xander (the werewolf) must admit to his pack that he’s gay. Second, he has to tell Jessie (the human) that he’s a werewolf. This causes some conflict and minor drama both within the pack and between each other; but nothing some affection and honesty wouldn’t fix.
For a short read, this was worth the time. Not entirely sure I will continue with the series–we will see as the rest of the story comes out.
