Charlene Teglia is quickly becoming one of my favorite erotica authors. Her stories have a bit of a darker edge yet don¿t cross the line of suspense or horror¿they aren¿t THAT dark. And her touch with love scenes is very good, there¿s no doubt the stories are erotica, yet I don¿t lose the story because of the sex, if you follow. Her latest, ¿Animal Attraction¿, is paranormal erotica that actually made logic of a multiple-partner love scene and a ménage relationship.
Chandra has long come to terms with being an adopted child. She never lost interest in finding out about her birth parents, but hasn¿t had much luck with that so far. Since her twenty-first birthday though, things have been getting a bit strange. There are the strange dreams that she can¿t quite remember, her senses are doing strange things, and now she has apparently made enemies out of total strangers! Like today, when three people tried to knife her and some hottie saved her and then kissed her. But he was dangerous; she could just `feel¿ it. Then she finds out what¿s going on and what makes her so different¿she¿s a rare female werewolf, about to go through her first change, and to really belong to the local pack she needs to be intimate with a dozen dazzling specimens of manhood and then pick one to be her mate and king. Ohhhh kay.
Like I said, somehow Teglia made the whole one female, twelve men orgy scene logical, and let me tell you that¿s no easy feat! There are, of course, sexual positions and acts galore in this story, but none of them overshadow the story itself. Instead they are an intricate part of the tale which is, for me, the true mark of erotica. The acts are described in graphic terms which may offend non-erotica readers so be warned. There are scenes with one, two, three, and four partners; oral sex, anal sex, vaginal sex, and skin sex. All described in a manner that will make you reach for a fan, a glass of water, and maybe even a cigarette when you¿re done!
¿Animal Attraction¿ is going directly to my keeper shelf¿do not pass go, do not collect $200. It¿s a story that has many of my favorite themes in paranormal erotica: werewolves (of course, I don¿t turn away vampires either!), a strong heroine who does some butt-kicking herself, normality turned upside-down, a ménage with a happily ever after, and all sex is hot, safe, and consensual. If these things `call¿ to the animal in you, you¿ll definitely love Charlene Teglia¿s latest.

Chandra Walker was adopted as a baby and grew up not knowing that she is a shape-shifting wolf. Her soon-to-be pack mates seek her out to prepare her for the change that will occur on the first full moon after her 21st birthday. The middle 2/3 of the book is a long menage scene that was over the top for my taste. I enjoyed the plot and the explanation of lupine and shifter lore in the other 1/3 of the book. If there was a sequel, I'd like to know what would happen next. This read is not worth your time unless a very long and very explicit menage scene IS what you are looking for.Was this review helpful?

I was not impressed with this book at all. It couldn't decide whether it was going for laughs or for sex. Yes, there was multiple partners but the character devolpment was poor, so you felt little connection with the story. I wouldn't have minded that, if the sex was hot-it wasn't....same formula over and over, with some sort of forest sprite that looked like it was thrown in because the author herself was bored.
