Reviewed for queuemyreview.com; book release Mar09

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.

It wasn't good, but it wasn't the worst I've ever read.

The plot was good. But she could have written it so much... neater. The writing was just plain sloppy. The author didn't seem to put any effort into making you feel the characters feelings. All in all I don't recommend buying this book. It's not worth spending money on....

    Good read

    I enjoyed reading this book. Very hot! Only reason i gave it three stars is because i felt it could have/needed to be longer. More information regarding the people in it.

    Good Book

    This was a good book. It was a little strange at first with all the men but I was pleasantly supprised. Good Read.

    Steamy, but Loses it at the End

    If you like Erotica, you will enjoy this book. It is a quick, fun read, and it makes you want to finish the book in one sitting. But the end is rather disappointing. The turns the plot takes are not what you would expect. All in all it is an ok book. Great for a rainy day or passing time.

    A nice way to pass the time

    I thought this story was interesting until I got further to the end. It didn't really GO anywhere. The drama was quick and minimal and over before anything could build up. I could have been so much more. But at least the stuff in the middle was steam-o-rific!
