Wolf Nip - Book Review by Voodoo Bride (and a giveaway)

Wolf Nip (Granite Lake Wolves #6)
by Vivian Arend

ebook, novella

What is it about:
Tessa Williams is looking to make her mark outside the family business, and the unusual landlocked paddle wheeler she spots in Haines, Alaska, strikes her as the perfect location. Only the owner is being difficult, refusing to sell. Still, she’s sure that replacing her written queries with a little in-person charm is all she’ll need to shortly have her Eco-tour B&B on the road to success.

Local wolf-slash-owner of said vessel, Mark Weaver, isn’t hanging on to the landmark building out of spite. There are more reasons for holding back the sale than are easily explained on paper. A face-to-face meeting to resolve the matter only confounds it—when Mark recognizes Tessa as his mate.

But she’s a cat…and cats don’t do insta-mates.

The sexual attraction between them isn’t in question, just everything else. He wants her. She wants twue wuv. His wolf can’t figure out what the holdup is. Her cat thinks the entire situation, and the pack, are rather amusing.

Somewhere in here is the beginning of a beautiful relationship—if they don’t drive each other mad.

What did Voodoo Bride think of it:
This series is so addicting.

When you pick up a Wolfie book by Vivian Arend you know you are in for a hot, romantic read.

Wolf Nip was everything I expected it to be:
Fun, romantic, and delicious.

I really liked the difference between how Tessa looks at mating and how Mark experiences it. It gave depth to both the romance and the world Arend created. I loved reading how Tessa and Mark grew closer together.

I did have one problem with this story I will confess. At a certain moment Tessa gets some well meaning advice from a friend. I didn't like what the friend was implying to be honest, although it might have been just my interpretation. But luckily that was just one small thing in an otherwise great story.

All in all this is a very satisfying read and I look forward to more shifter stories by Vivian Arend. I really hope she keeps them coming.

Why should you read it:
It's a fun and hot Paranormal Read

I am a huge fan of Vivian's books. I have read all her Wolfie's books (both the Granite Lake and Takhini Wolves). Plus, I have read and loved many of her other books. I am currently reading WOLF NIP and loving it :)

Lovely review, thank you. Don't enter me, I hope she brings some great stuff to Berlin! I haven't read any of her books, too hot for my tastes, though those Wolvies sound so very good.

Thanks for the review, I am a big fan of this series and have read them all except I haven't got Wolf Nip yet. I love the Takhini wolfies as well as the Granite Lake, the writing is so good!
