When Abby Maddox's grandfather swears he saw Bigfoot in the woods behind his Portland, Oregon, home, his neighbors decide to bring in a prominent anthropologist to prove him wrong.

    an amusing tale of between star-crossed species

    Seemingly forever to his family Grandpa Earl Dooley has searched for Bigfoot in the Oregon wilderness not far from Portland. Ten days ago Earl claims to have seen two big furry and smelly creatures, but his photo lacks conclusive clarity. His family in Arizona agrees with his wealthy neighbors the Gentry family that Earl is nuts.

    The Gentry couple brings in NYU Anthropology Professor Roark Wallace to prove Earl's claim was a fake. His granddaughter Insurance Claims Adjuster Abby Winchell arrives from Phoenix to persuade her Grandpa Earl to sell to the Gentrys and move closer to her home. To convince her beloved relative, she must get Professor Wallace to back down. She shows him pictures to force him to assist her quest for the truth. He is attracted to the Arizonian, but hides that he knows what her grandfather found from her while the werewolf pack fears the professor is betraying them.

    The second Wild About You urban romantic fantasy (see A Werewolf in Manhattan) is an amusing tale of between star-crossed species. The story line is filled with a strong cast as the support characters bring plenty to the hunt for Bigfoot. The Gentry want Earl's land and him away from the Pacific Northwest for fear of exposure by the persistent obstinate old coot; Bigfoot fanatic Donald Smurtz wants to prove he is right at any cost; finally there is Grandpa Earl who refuses to cede his contention. With that mix and the Oregonian North Woods, fans will enjoy the taboo romance between the anthropologist and the insurance adjuster.

    I LOVE THIS BOOK !!!!!!!

    I love this story and if you have read the first book you get the irony that Roarke is going throw the same thing with Abby as his brother did with Emma. So its his tern to tell the story and I think all the Willed about you series books are awesome, after I read the first one I had to see if there were more. The books are well wrightin, fun, and have the hotest weres in the pack. Vicki had brought out my iner geek with her nerd series and now her new series is leting this wolf hooooowwwwl !!!!

    Excellent read!

    Always enjoy books by Vicki L. Thompson...interjects humor and fun her into plots. Vicki builds her paranormal world a bit differently than most 'were' series. This book has interesting atypical characters. Romance builds slowly and doesn't overwhelm the plot. Enjoyable afternoon read!

    This was a cute and fun read that while not extraordinary, was a perky pick-me-up that I enjoyed.

    This is the second book from Ms. Thompson that I won in an author contest through Fresh Fiction. I have to say that I am very glad that I was fortunate enough to win both books, not only because I received two author signed books which makes the fan-girl in me squee, but also because in reading the second book in this series I feel I received a better look at Ms. Thompson’s writing.

    I liked this book quite a bit more than A Werewolf in Manhattan, the first book in Ms. Thompson’s Wild about You series, which to me felt a lot more like chick-lit with paranormal pretentions, whereas this book read a lot more into the paranormal romance genre to me. Still a light-hearted romp, but a little less with the “Hey Sexy let’s get naked” (Ok, some sexy naked bit, but within a plot that had better flow.), and a little more playing with the concepts of romance interacting with the supernatural.

    I liked the other supernatural creatures introduced into this book, adding in Bigfoot to a werewolf story was a first for me, but a fun element that added to the humor. I also enjoyed Roarke’s character rounding out as an Indiana-Jones-loving professor with passion both for his subject and his heritage. I think this volume benefited from both the world-building and the human/were trailblazing A Werewolf in Manhattan was able to pioneer, and was much better book for it. I liked Abby’s belief in the fantastical, and enjoyed the fact that this book started the characters out without the depth of deception that irked me in the first book. I also tend to think that I just enjoyed the characters in this book a bit more simply because I could more easily connect to them.

    I loved this book. The characters were endearing and i LOVED the quirky Donald. I took off one star because I felt that she got to the end of the book and gave up on the story. instead of a real ending it seems that she was rushing to finish. The story had so much energy and we get to the end and it just stops. I expected better in the last 20 pages

    Great read

    I really liked this book because it was longer than the novella which starts this series. It's a toss-up for me to choose between this series and the Babes on Brooms series. This is a must-read for VLT fans. One of the things that I like about this book is that the human doesn't just jump on the werewolf bandwagon. It takes her time to learn to trust him despite their mutual attraction. This makes it a little more believable. Maybe I liked it so much because like the characters I love hiking in the Pacific NW! lol
