Call of the Wild…

Kevin Sullivan has never minded being a werewolf. He has a great job, a little sister who adores him, and plenty of good friends. But an erotic encounter with Roman Le Feuvre, the sexy, mysterious Alpha of the Bloodmoon Pack, leaves Kevin feeling lost, lonely and desperate for companionship for the first time in his life. Roman is shrewd as both master of Wall Street and king of the New York werewolves, but he harbors a dark secret that’s about to turn Kevin’s world upside down. Kevin wants nothing more than to find his place in Roman’s pack–and in his heart!–but dark forces may leave him crying wolf.


I bought this book on a whim.  I loved the different view of werewolves.  Unfortunately this book gives very little plot to go with it.  The story contains LOTS of sex.  This isn’t always a bad thing but in this case there was no connection to be felt between partners.  Yes, there is a “love” angle to the story but I really didn’t understand why they were in love.  They didn’t talk much or hang out very long.  It seemed like since they were both Pedigrees that they would get together with an open relationship.

I want to say that the writer really did make the characters interesting.  I believe if there had been more development to the story and a little less of the sex that the book would have been better.  I had no issues with the open nature of relationships portrayed by the author.  The issue is connection.  I felt nothing for the characters.  I actually felt more for Hannah, who is a side character.  I really felt that the author was more about the sex than the story line so it suffered.

So, I didn’t care for this book.  I may keep an eye out for the author since he seems to have some wicked story ideas and hope that his writing improves.
