Weretastic Romance!

Carrie Ann Ryan and her debut story are AWESOME! This is a short, paranormal romance that will heat your heart up and turn you into a forever fan! With an amazingly created alpha hero and a heroine that will tug at your heart strings, this is one story that you won't want to miss!

Kade Jamieson is one HOT wolf! Oh my gosh. As I sat there reading his description in the story, my jaw dropped. He was absolutely yummy sounding!!!! And, after having just broken up with whom he thought was his life's mate, I just wanted to put myself in Melanie's shoes and wrap my arms around the hunky man and give him a hug! The attraction he felt to Melanie, though, was instant and steamy! WOW!

I loved the way Kade treated Melanie....like he treasured her. He's over a 100 years old (after all, he's a wolf.....) and really knew how to treat a sexy woman. I loved the way he had conversations in his head with his wolf self. Hehehe. It really made for a bit of comedy in the story :-).

Poor Melanie. She's got her PhD but absolutely no social life, save for her best friend. And what that best friend intends to set Melanie up for a blind date....well, I could feel Melanie's inner turmoil at not wanting that. But, in the end, she accepted, and what happens after that....well she met a sexy, gorgeous, takes-your-breath-away kind man, who happens to have a secret.

I loved watching these two amazing characters interact. And with a few awesome secondary characters, I really hope that this won't be the end (pssst....check out Carrie's website....you'll see it's NOT the end...I can't wait for Spring of 2012!). Carrie Ann's debut is a rockin' one and shouldn't be missed by anyone who loves a fantastic paranormal romance filled with hot passion scenes and gorgeous man-wolves. Definitely a 5 Book worthy keeper in my opinion!

So so

Hot and steamy. Poor editing. Only 55 pages, a full story would have been more enjoyable.

    Not well written.

    Contains an unoriginal plot. Appears to not have been edited. A disappointing purchase.

    Leave this book on the shelf

    This "book" does not qualify as a book. It is only a short story, and a rather poor one. The story needs major rework to even qualify for a fair rating. No wonder the author does not want people to share it.

    Not fun

    No depth, nothing original. Sort of a paranormal dog and pony show

    Laughable

    I'm not even through the first love scene and can't stop laughing! This reads like a diary written by a high-schooler. Even the words during love-making, sex, whatever ' are immature. It took me back to those days when you thought you knew what you were doing and didn't . If the author is over 20, shame on you. Please don't attempt to write steamy books if this is your idea of hot. This book will not even raise ones temperature one degree (unless it's you're first). No thank you. Will not continue the series.

    Really short, typos

    I didn't realize this was only a novella. For such a short story, it had a lot of typos. It's a real throw them into bed and make them f*** kind of a story. Short on plot and motivation, but there is sex. Probably worth the 99 cents I paid, though.

    Ok.....

    Even though its re edited, the characters seem like they dont have logical reasons for their decisions and actions. Even though this is paranormal i got mad bc of the unrealistic actions being taken. Im all for romance and wolves etc, but this book just seems a little farfetched for me.

    Although this author shows potential, i think they need a different editor. Not for line editing, but for editing the realisticness of the characters actions moods etc.

    They just decided to have sex too quick for me. Both wanted a walk then dont go fir it. So the herione wants a bath but doesnt go for it and then they just have sex. Plus there is confusion about she just got "their" room upstairs? When did this happen and why does she? Shes sure about getting laid? Things need to be made clearer.

    awful! Get an editor, read your own work, or go back and repeat

    awful! Get an editor, read your own work, or go back and repeat 3rd grade... again. I thought you were spoofing for awhile. Then it became clear you neither read, nor write, in English. Wish I'd read the comments before blowing 99 cents. I wouldn't do a free share on this dreck. Especially if someone thoght it was "OMG" ...probably 13 and flunked 3rd grade along with the author.

    Wish i had read the eviews first

    Could have been a better book, tried to hard putting steamy sex and went over the edge to what i would call sexy. Story lines went nowhere, it was like lets do a chapter call it twenty chapters and make a buck out of it.
