Logan Black, former Marine and bodyguard for the Seattle Wolf Pack, hates weddings and has no plan to walk the path to matrimonial
misery. But when he’s hired to protect a hot-to-trot wedding planner with a werewolf stalker, he’s forced to put his feelings aside. Not such an easy task when the damsel can turn him on with a single smoldering glance.
Wedding planner Veronica Vale knows werewolves exist, but hates them. One bit her sister, changing their lives forever. When a sexy Marine shows his gorgeous face at one of her wedding appointments, Veronica finds it hard to focus on the task at hand.
The chemistry drawing Logan and Veronica together seems fated, but with Logan’s playboy attitude, Veronica’s hatred for werewolves, and a stalker lurking in the shadows, these two need more than passion to keep them together.
My Take On The Book:
Knowing that this book is the second in a series didn’t prepare me for the lack of something. While reading this book, I don’t what I expected exactly and truth be told I’m not sure if it met those unknown expectations. All I know is that something was missing and it kind of bugged me. As I’ve said before, in other reviews, I have a soft spot for furry werebeast so I literally jumped at the opportunity to read this book. Not to mention that I loved loved loved the first book, even though it was a tad cliché.
Veronica Vale is a wedding planner, a damned good one. She’s all work and no play and she absolutely hates werewolves, regardless of the fact that her sister is one. Lucky for her (please note the sarcasm) her stalker or admirer as she believes, is a werewolf.
Logan Black is utter sexiness, a bodyguard and as it seems, the only man who has the power to make Veronica let loose. Too bad for him that she’s off limits and he’s the one thing she hates most.
Honestly, I loved Logan even with his commitment issues and at times I loved Veronica just as much. Jake and Leah, as little as they appeared in the story get love too, especially Leah with her snark. I can’t pinpoint exactly where my disinterest piqued but my bet is somewhere along the lines of Veronica’s inner and outer hating monologue about wolves.
Her hate for them was a bit too much. The author spent too much time focusing on that aspect of the story and it left me with a bitter taste in my mouth. I understand that her sister Leah was attacked gruesomely by a wolf, but hating wolves when the only family you have left is one of the things you hate most it’s time to rethink your stand on that. Go ahead and hate the creep that attacked her but don’t hate them all. That’s just plain ole discrimination and it makes the main character someone you can’t connect with. She came off as a pain in the ass and I kinda didn’t care if her stalker mauled her other than the fact that it would have hurt Logan.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that Veronica was an ignorant pain in the ass and the amount of time spent writing about her hate of wolves takes away from the real plot point of the story. It’s on almost every page of the book. The creepy wolf stalker literally takes a back seat to her deep rooted hate of wolves.
No Pros and Cons list for this one as there was really not much else to say on this book that hasn’t already been said.
I guess I might recommend this book as a light read but with a disclaimer stating that I didn’t particularly enjoy this story due to the main character. The premise of the story is great, something I really was drawn to but the way it was executed is not my cup of tea.
