Amelia Jones is many things. She's a woman, obviously, a private detective, and a werewolf. Keeping her werewolf nature hidden all these years has also led her, even though she's in her twenties, to be unmarried, totally single, and still a virgin. Throw a very handsome, Calvin Klein model handsome, man who's attracted to Amelia....and married...to her client...into the mix and you've got a recipe for disaster. It took me a little bit to get into Lost, but around 35% on my Kindle's standards, I couldn't put the book down. I became engrossed in Amelia's dilemmas and the drama surrounding her. Amelia has two dads, she's now a grown woman fighting to survive on her own. It's made even harder by the fact that she's a werewolf fighting her very nature. She's been forcing the wolf down for a long time, and it's getting harder and harder. Especially around Matthew, her clients husband. Amelia is hired to find out if Matthew is cheating on his much older wife. Unfortunately for Amelia, Matthew runs an escort business. And in order to go undercover she's going to have to join his world. This means traveling with him to paradise and getting pampered a la` Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. What she runs into there is so much more than expected. A mystery to be solved, danger, and an attraction that might be hard to avoid. As I said before, it was a little before I got into it, but then I loved it. The suspense and mystery, along with the werewolf paranormal, was great. The one thing I will say is that towards the end there is a scene that might be difficult for a woman who has suffered rape or a sexual attack to read. Other than that, I enjoyed the book and can't wait for book 2. The ending was cliffhanger and I'm now in love with Amelia Jones. I was not paid for this review, the opinions expressed here are my own and were in no way swayed. I was gifted this book by the author and that is it. Thank you for taking the time to read! -Melissa A room without books is like a body without a soul. -Cicero
Reviewed by Robin Clark for Readers Favorite Amelia Jones is a private detective with a little something extra in the asset column. Not only does she have the normal PI skills, she also has a heightened sense of smell and hearing. You see, not only is Amelia a great PI, she is also a werewolf. In this story, Amelia takes on a case that stretches not only her skills as a detective to the limits, but also her ability to hide her true self. She becomes wrapped in a web of deceit, misunderstandings, and lust when she is asked to follow her new client's husband who she thinks is being unfaithful to her. Along the way she becomes acquainted with a few people whose scents make her feeling very uneasy. She begins to receive disturbing calls warning her to be careful and that her parents are in danger. Could her case and the calls be connected? It begins to look that way. Will she be able to find the answers? Will she be able to fight the "animal" urges she begins to feel for her clients husband? This book is the start of something! The reader is left wanting book two right away. I enjoyed being trapped in this web and searching for answers. I feel that anyone who enjoys a good mystery will enjoy this book with its twists and turns. Keep your seat belts on.
I did enjoy reading and learning about Amelia. And I look forward to book two. However, I think a lot was put into book one. There was some time skips but there was also a lot of side things. Like questions about other people, side task, and it could get a bit confusing. However, I did think the concept was good. I want to read more of Amelia and see how she tackles on what still lays ahead of her. She has cases to solve and growing up to do. Can't wait to see what situations she finds herself in next.
