Wolf Slayer, Angela Addams
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews

So… this is book two, and I hadn’t read book one but didn’t think that would matter. What I missed though was it’s a novella and I find those difficult to enjoy  Usually  I just feel they are too short to really get into, to get to know characters and to enjoy the story. I loved the sound of the premise, and think this would be great as a longer novel, but the short length doesn’t do the story justice.
Aubrey is a twin, born into a Hunter family and waiting for her Hunter mate to appear…but times getting short and then to her shock it’s her sister that gets chosen. That’s a blow to her, so she takes a job in security for a band. She doesn’t know that one of the players is her destined mate – he does, but to Jaylon romance isn’t something that comes easy. In fact he’s all round a difficult person, very abrupt and easy to antagonise. Aubrey does just that when they first meet, and though he’s kicking himself later his surliness puts her off….then things heat up and before long they are hot and heavy, having erotic encounters every time they meet it seems, although he still hasn’t told her the truth, that he’s her mate and a werewolf. How’s that going to work with a trained would-be Hunter? Times getting short too – he’s only a few days left to convince her, or she will be killed.
Well, the story goes on, with lots of hot sex, some drama and danger and an interlude with Aubrey’s sister and Hunter mate.
To be honest I think had this book been longer I may have enjoyed it more. As it was there was so much packed in to such a short space it left me with too many unanswered questions. Some may have been explained in book one of course, and though usually subsequent books in a series carry some brief essential info as the story continues, this one didn’t. So I didn’t understand for instance what was behind the werewolf/Hunter thing, why the wolves are shot on sight. These lads were in a band, not mass murderers, and didn’t seem to have any evil intentions so why did the Hunters want to kill them? That was my big one, and then of course the way Aubrey gets together with Jaylon so quickly, despite not liking him…it’s the limitations of the format that there wasn’t space to explore these questions but that made it a – well, not a fail, but not a good book for me either.
Stars: two and a half, too short for me but for readers who want a quick, sexy paranormal story it’s spot on.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
