was there, a romantic side, a fun loving side, even a sappy side because he had fallen hard for her His adoration gave me butterflies I didn t expect so much humor in this Mateo s wolf was hilarious at times The running monologue drove Mateo crazy Evie was so full of life, so exuberant She was so good for Mateo Werewolves were solitary by nature but she drew him out Feelings grew fast and deep but they had to figure out how to free Mateo s wolf first After that would he be finished with Evie Or could they be I enjoyed this so much I loved these sisters I m thinking the future books will be about each sister I m not sure but if that s the case, I have my hopes on who will be next Juliette Cross never fails to amaze me and that s just what she did with this new series It s so different than any of her others and I can t wait for you to meet Evie and Mateo I hope you love them just as I did.For about this book and so many , come and visit me at Carol s Crazy Bookish World.https

all the shifter books I ve read dragon,shark, panther, crocodile, bunny,etc I still come back to wolves They ll be my number one always I think Add witches and New Orleans and this book made my favourites list before I even read it Luckily for me it was just as good as I needed it to be I love it when authors put their own stamp on classic supernatural beings and Juliette Cross certainly did that here Mateo Cruz has reached his breaking point Unable to shift for three months and constantly being beleaguered by his wolf, has pushed him to the limit In desperation he seeks the witches help Known for their coven rule of no werewolves he risks their wrath but at this point he feels he has no other choice Evie Savoie almost throws Mateo out of her family s bar when she realises he s truly suffering after he briefly loses control of the wolf She decides to bend the rules and take him to her sisters Mateo and the witches suspect that someone has hexed him and Evie as a hex breaker witch agrees to help him break it Unfortunately for them it s not as simple as it sounds By far the most delightful part of the book is the irreverent commentary by Alpha, Mateo s wolf He was truly an Alpha and I loved him Mateo is a laid back lone wolf focused in creating his art than anything else In contrast Alpha wants to kill, maim or beat up everything that moves and establish his dominance I was a sucker for Alpha I liked Mateo, he was a fabulous guy but his inner wolf stole my heart and revved up my libido This was a majorly fun book for me Reading about the werewolf lore, the witches magic and meeting various side characters I m sure will get their own books, was so entertaining for me No angst, no misunderstandings, no I don t deserve you whining, just a lovely straightforward slow burn with a decent suspense element I know some of you need the angst and the drama but not me I love a good amusing book without all the unnecessary shock value twists side eye at you Scarlett Dawn, Susan Fanetti and C.L.Wilson If you love angst free paranormal romance with werewolves and witches, give it a try P.S Contains Star Wars spoilers As well as Deadpool and Wolverine geek outs14 12 19It comes out on my birthday This review was originally posted on Books of My Heart Review copy was received from Author This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Wolf Gone Wild is a new series from Juliette Cross I ve read a few of her other series and this one is a bit of a shift in tone and direction It is much on the romantic side of PNR and it s a lot lighter, with humor and pop culture references than the other series I ve read by herWait a minute You watched it once So you ve seen one Star Wars movie And that s it He shrugged a shoulder Not really into science fiction movies Or movies in general, for that matter I can t even believe what I m hearing, I muttered to myself than to him It was like Chewbacca speaking Klingon Does Not Compute Okay Don t freak out on himMeet Evie our Star Wars and comic loving heroine, who also comes from a crazy little family of witches I mean crazy in the best shenanigans kind of way Her oldest sister, Jules, is the power force behind the magic scene in New Orleans with all of her other sisters including herself leading some kind of support role too that Jules has always saidstay away from Werewolves they are nothing but trouble and she is probably right because Mateo is T R O U B L E Well actually he is in trouble and only Evie and her family might be able to help himShe took out her wand yes, you heard me handcrafted according to her Potter assigned wand as 14.5 inches long, made of vine wood with unicorn hair core I d asked her what her craftsman had used instead of unicorn hair, because unicorns weren t real She d just laughed at me like I was silly and na ve So I left it aloneMateo has been cursed He used to have a good balance with the wolf inside of him and they each got body time and didn t really bother the other But due to the curse not letting him shift Alpha is the voice in his head that just won t shut up and is really only interested in eating, fighting and banging Not specifically in that order He needs Evie to help him break this curse since he is starting to feel like the wolf is going to take over and no one in the city needs that to happen.This is a cute love story with a good introduction to the world and some of the characters in it Evie is pretty adorable and loved her geeked out love of all things comic book related and the pop culture references that brought out in the story Her connection to Mateo is cute and I really enjoyed reading their love story Alpha is the comic relief and it was fun watching him and Mateo try and find a balance sharing the same body in the same space and time.This series seems like all the books will be romance based and you can read them as stand alone novels I liked how the magic was presented in the book and look forward to seeing what other kinds of creatures the series has in story for us Evie and Mateo s story was witty, flirty and fun I m interested in seeing how the rest of the sisters do and who their matches will be. 3.5 A wolf wants what he wants starsI have been waiting to get my hands on this one, the only problem is that I only liked it..not loved it, unfortunately This being said I still highly recommend this book What I loved ALPHA yeah he was my favorite , freaking adored him some of his monologue in Mateo head made me laugh out loudHey I can be gentle Go get that red haired witch, and I ll show her how gently I can smack her ass I wish you d lose control of your dick, because my balls are so blue you could sprinkle glitter on them and hang em on a Christmas treeMateo was gentle and caring but far too soft for my taste ,so yeah, I much prefer his wolf Alpha.I also liked Ruben and the sisters, I think they will be awesome in their own books and I already matched them up with whom I think they will be What disappointed me Well, I was expecting way intensity and that WOW feeling that I had when reading other books of JC ,This was like a paranormal rom com with a splash of sexy Was sooo slow burn that I was wondering if its actually a YA book Thank God we had Alpha and his dirty thoughts to keep this in the NA area.I wanted a real plot, some angst and twist and turns but it felt just decent and meh.Overall this could be a big win for others I m sure of that, it just wasn t quite enough for me, especially because I know JC can write brilliant intense heartwarming stories For fans of Star Wars ,this is full of spoilers so read at your own cost if you haven t seen the movies. This is one of the hardest reviews I ve ever had to write I ve been going back and forth, trying to figure out how to adequately capture just how freaking AMAZEBALLS this story was How can I get you, my fellow reader, to fully understand the necessity of adding this book to your reading experience How can I provide you with sufficient information to tempt you into taking the plunge, without giving too much of this story s SENSATIONAL goodness away Juliette Cross will always be one of my favorite authors and this book only further cemented that fact There s an insanely sexy werewolf named Mateo I mean, this man is freaking SEX SAY He s a metalwork artist, owns his own gallery, and the author created him with such perfection that I was left swooning and silly all over the place Every scene left me with a goofy smile on my face and I was in absolute heaven with this man He s been cursed, he doesn t know who did it, and honestly it was hard to believe someone would do that to him because he was such an incredible man Honest and kind, humble and talented, he was everything a girl could want and wish for in a fantastic hero.Then there s Evie, a witch, a hex breaker, and generally impressive person She was a heroine after my own heart She was a geek when it came to all things Marvellike me , she was obsessed with Star Warslike meto be real, if I had even a modicum of artistic talentlike my kids , I d totally see myself in her As it was, she was AWESOME She was full of pure and positive energy, she was sweet and smart, and she was breathtaking While working to help Mateo unleash his wolf, she befriends him and quickly learns that remaining friends isn t what she truly wants How can she possibly resist his stunning temptation Seriously, if you love romance if you love great characters if you love all things paranormal if you love to laugh and swoon and grin like a loon you will most definitely LOOOOOVE this book 3.5 StarsAnd that means this was a solid read that I do recommend, butI m was little confused by this book I think that the central idea was great and that was what caught my attention in the blurb But, there were some issues So, I m going to break down what I liked and what I didn t enjoy so much Loved The cover It s truly gorgeous and gives you a beautiful magical vibe.The main idea of having a different personality wolf in the MC s head is a nice way to twist a multiple personality plot and it was very interesting.Really liked Evie as a character, New Orleans as a background and the funny and sweet side of Mateo.Not a fan Weird pacing, dialogues didn t always click I was never too concerned or too preoccupied I understand the nods and modern references to TV shows and other contemporary topics but to me, it took me out of the magical world we were within the book.Overall, it was a fun and interesting read I see a lot of potential within this world, its rules and its characters It will be interesting to see if Juliette Cross will continue to explore this universe. Werewolfs,witches ,vampires and a zombie cat oh My Another fabulous read from Juliette cross and it s a twisty,snarky and full of awesome one liners with hot sexy paranormal male characters from Mateo who s a werewolf who s had a hex put on him so he can t shift to his wolf and is being drove crazy by Alpha his wolf spirt and all alpha cares about is fucking and fighting and of course he won t shut up for one moment Until Mateo goes to see evie a witch who breaks hex s Mateo and evie along with her sisters have tried to help him break the curse but some very powerful witch has cast a blood spell It will take not only evie and her witch sisters,and a powerful vampire to find a book to break this curse and they don t even now who the witch is This book had all juliette s trade Mark s from amazing writing to a great storyline to steamy lovemaking and hot sensuality It s set in New Orleans were their are many paranormal creatures and you never know what or who you might come across The build between evie and Mateo is slow at first because Mateo is a loner like most wolf s he likes his own company He doesn t get to close to any women for fear that they ll start asking questions on why he takes off for days on end,it s just easier this way, And ever since evie s break up with Derek the douche bag evie hasn t been with any other guys Their becoming best friends and she s teaching him all about star wars and wolverine and comics,and their growing closer Mateo wants evie but he s afraid of alpha taking over and him not being able to control him,but the fires building and soon neither will have a choice And when alpha starts the ball in motion mateo can t control the beast any longer and the need to claim to his sweet little witch is now the time is well past stolen kisses and caresses its time to make her his Lots of foreplay and off the charts chemistry And the characters are awesome as well I loved both evie and Mateo she was sweet and sexy girl who loves starwars, wolverine and comics and Mateo is a artist who makes mythical metal sculptures And then theirs secondary characters like evie s sister jule,violet and Clara who all have special talents who just as intriguing and then theirs a sexy gorgeous vampire Ruben Dubois who is the head of the southern vampires,he s so sexy Can t wait for of him I highly recommend this book if you like a entertaining funny sexy read with fabulous one liners and plenty of snark to go around with passion and a sexy werewolve who s wolf spirt Alpha is a delicious dirty bad boy who just can t keep his thoughts to himself Until next time luv s. 3.75 StarsMateo Cruz s wolf is trapped, with one fierce hex and he needs the help of a witch before he gives into the violence driving is wolf aka Alpha Powerful witch, Evie Savoie has always obeyed the house rules of her coven no werewolves, but when Mateo pleads for help, she cannot turn away Together the two were cute, their chemistry clear I just wanted a bit sizzle and snap when it came to the heat and attraction between them The conversations between Alpha and Mateo had me smirking a fair bit Ruben Dubois who is the head of the southern vampires, is a secondary character I m looking forward to seeing of, especially given Evie s sister s reaction to him.Acquired via KU.
