Well Shucks! Why is it when I go camping all I come home with is bug bites and poison ivy rashes, unlike our main character Rylee who takes her brother and his friends camping one weekend and ends up bringing home a gorgeous werewolf.
Some gals have all the luck. At least this is true in this very cute and romantic short story.
Plain and simple Rylee has been asked by her parents to take her brother and his friends camping over the Victoria Day weekend. Rylee agrees but feels her weekend will be mostly a huge bore as she has to play chaperone to the rowdy teenage boys. Packing up a good book to read over the weekend, she takes the boys to Elora Gorge.
Atticus, a gorgeous bleach-blond werewolf who is next in line to take over as ALPHA has decide to hide out at Elora's Gorge also. He is tired of his father's insistence that he hurry up and take a werewolf mate. Atticus figures the park might be a good place to run in wolf form and get away from the family stress for awhile.
Rylee finds a surprise when she walks up on Atticus' camp site. She sees the most gorgeous, sexiest man she has ever seen and immediately feels an instant attraction.
Atticus is hit with the scent of his true mate when Rylee walks up but the major problem he faces is the fact Rylee is mortal and his father will never approve. Atticus realizes he has waited over 900 years to find his true mate Rylee so he plans on claiming her as his own immediately. There seems to be a little snag in his plans though as a former lover who is also a werewolf shows up at his campsite. This wolf-diva wants Atticus as her own so she can up her status in the hierarchy. This gorgeous but dangerous opponent is determined to do anything to get Atticus for herself, even if that means taking Rylee completely out of the picture.
This smooth flowing story completely grabbed my interest from the very first paragraph. I was enthralled by the immediate chemistry of the two main characters and I thoroughly enjoyed the hot and sexy love scenes. Marisa Chenery did an excellent job at spinning an interesting paranormal tale that sizzled the pages right out of the book. This reader was finding herself fantasizing about discovering her very own Atticus. After all, who wouldn't want a gorgeous and sexy mate for life?
I like the antics of the side characters as the teenagers in the story were true to their nature. Despite the fact the immature boys were into mischief, I enjoyed the brief scene were Rylee's brother came to his sister's rescue. That scene reminded this reader that family is indeed important.
And without saying too much to ruin the end of the story, let's just say I love the part where Atticus' mom came to his rescue too.
This short story was well written, entertaining and extremely hot. My only complaint is that it was too short! I wanted so much more. I plan to read many more stories by Marisa Chenery in the future if I can. I am sure I will be saving this one to reread again in the future.
If you love paranormal stories with a sexy "Happily Ever After" then this is the story for you!

The Canuck Werewolf is the first book in the "Big City Pack" series by author Marisa Chenery and after reading this book I CANNOT wait to read the rest of the books in this series.
This book had a nice mix of “Hot and Steamy” and” sweet and cuddly” romance and makes for great bedtime reading.
I must say that after reading this book Marisa Chenery is now on my favorite author list and I am looking forward to reading more of her stories.
So if you are looking for a good read, you cannot afford to pass up this or other books by this author.

Hopefully this author's skills will improve over time. Good character development and strong relationships are difficult to express in shorter books. The author managed neither.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
