Sparks fly – literally – when a werewolf who doesn’t believe in happily ever after meets his fated mate in What a Werewolf Wants. Kristin Miller’s third San Francisco Wolf Pack story has a sexy werewolf hero, a hopeless romantic for a heroine, a dash of humor, and the hope that true love will conquer all – how can you resist?
Josie is a vivacious heroine who is easy to adore. She’s a smart businesswoman with an almost supernatural gift for matching people together. Her success at doing so only solidifies her belief in true love, which is why she’s shocked that the best man at her sister’s wedding wants to keep his best friend from reaching the altar. Ryder doesn’t believe most people are meant to be together forever, especially not werewolves like himself and his best friend who can live for a thousand years with one mate. Ryder’s cynicism makes sense, given that he’s a private investigator who specializes in infidelity. Having been burned by love himself, there’s no way he’ll take a chance on revealing his whole self – paws and all – to a woman who might see him as nothing more than a monster.
Ryder and Josie’s clash of wills set the stage for a battle we know Ryder will lose. Because Josie is his Luminary, or fated mate, she gets under his skin like no other. Their mutual attraction steams up the pages of What a Werewolf Wants and both Josie and Ryder begin to see that what they thought they wanted for themselves pales in comparison to what they could have together. It’s easy to become invested in not only their romance, but that of Carrie and Mitch, the bride and groom whose wedding starts as a bone of contention between Josie and Ryder. The two couples are each endearing in their own way and I was rooting for everyone to get their happily ever after.
What a Werewolf Wants is the third book in the San Francisco Wolf Pack series, but as I have not yet read The Werewolf Wears Prada or Beauty and the Werewolf I can safely say that Josie and Ryder’s story can be read as a standalone. I was incredibly intrigued by Ms. Miller’s werewolves and the structure of their world, and I’m eager to learn more. I adored What a Werewolf Wants and I can’t wait to get my hands on the rest of the San Francisco Wolf Pack books.
