Attorney Roz Wells has made a move to be a public defender in Boston. She's bored with her job and her life, and more than a little concerned about her best friend. Merry recently got married, and Roz has moved into her old apartment, hoping to surprise her friend when she returns from her honeymoon trip. Her concern stems from the admission that Merry made to her, that she was marrying a shape-shifter. This gives Roz cause for worry, thus the big move.

When she meets her upstairs neighbor, Konrad Wolfensen, the attraction is almost instantaneous on both their parts. What Roz doesn't know is that she has just moved into the strangest apartment building in Boston. From the psychic witches on the third floor, to the vampire in the basement and all the residents in between, life is never boring.

When Konrad gets arrested, she is assigned as his public defender, and she proves he couldn't have done what was claimed, getting the charges dropped. And Konrad has a suspicion that Roz is his one true mate, an idea proved correct when they discover they can mind speak. But will his secret be too much for Roz to accept? With a vengeful ghost out to frame Konrad, can she find a way to clear him? Can Roz accept that life just got much more interesting, and stay with Konrad?

Ashlyn Chase has written a fun and sexy follow up to her book Strange Neighbors. The Werewolf Upstairs brings the reader back to the Boston apartment building filled with paranormal characters of every strain. The romance between Roz and Konrad is the focal point, but there are several side issues here as well. I enjoyed watching Roz and Konrad as they ventured into untried territory in their search for new careers, and laughed with them as each failure just inspired them on.

I liked Roz. She is smart, and sassy, and still just on the insecure side. Her attraction to Konrad has her hesitant, fearing she isn't the typical slim and sexy type. I loved watching Konrad bring her out of her shell and convince her she is beautiful and vibrant and just what he wants. I also loved watching her open-minded personality, willing to accept things at face value and learn to accept what was once unbelievable to her.

Konrad is just delicious, sexy and sweet and caring. He is smart, and talented, and tends to be impulsive at times. He refuses to let Roz feel bad about herself. But it gets harder to hide his alternate personality from her, and he shows his vulnerable side more than once in this story. I enjoyed watching him come to terms with his feelings for Roz, and his concern for her was evident in everything he did.

There are several threads running through this, from the vengeful ghost at the museum who frames Konrad, to the feud between the witches that keeps popping up. All of the characters from the first book are here, including the annoying and very normal apartment manager and busybody, Dottie. I love how Ms. Chase continues to keep Dottie in the dark as to the nature of the supernatural beings that reside in the building, including Dottie's own husband. I look forward to the future stories of the other residents of this decidedly different Boston apartment building and all of its many denizens.

I bought this book based on it having almost 5 stars from other reviewers. After getting about 50 pages into it I started wondering if these other people actually read the same book I was reading. This book is terrible! I just cant get into a book when the main female character meets the main male love interest and in the first five minutes they are holding hands and kissing and by the 2nd day they are sleeping together and telling people they are and i quote "boyfriend and girlfriend". I honestly cannot recall the last time I read something this cheesy. Also half the time the book contradicts itself and doesnt make any sense. I almost never wright reviews on a bad book but I had to have the chance to forwarn others. Do not buy this book!!!!!

    Terrible

    It takes a lot for me not to stomach finishing a book, but this one and the others in this series are awful! Dumbed down writing and characters impossible to care about. Really wish i could get my money back.
