Third in this series. This was a good read, brought together the previous two stories. Romance, intrigue and steam all roll up into another chapter, making this worth the time spent.

This is the third is the series and is back to Ethan, our solider turned werewolf and his possible girlfriend Mia, a witch who is still hiding what she is and still unwilling to use her powers. The two have a real attraction to each other but both are fighting it. Ethan out of loyalty to Mia's brother his roommate and best friend and now the pack he is hoping to join that is putting demands on him. Mia holding out for fear of hurting her brother and her uncertainty about whether she wants to stay involved with Ethan and with him being a werewolf. To make matters worse the pack needs Ethan's hep in finding a missing pack member (Jacob from the last book) and another witch has approached Mia offering to take over her training from her friend/mentor Jessa. We are also introduced, by name, to the pack members (who still dislike Mia after she unintentionally poisoned their alpha-but she did heal him) and really don't want her involved with Ethan. Although I'm not a big fan of Mia who i feel needs to put her big girl pants on and face what she is I love Ethan and the fact he is doing what he can to give her space while building his place in the pack. I am looking forward to the I am looking forward to the next book and seeing how things go with Jacob and Kelly and who knows maybe there will be someone for Jessa. This was a quick read as it was full of suspense and I didn't want to put it down until I finished it and find out if Ethan (and the pack) were able to rescue the missing.

This is a great continuation to the first book in the series The Witch Who Cried Wolf and a tie into Cold Moon Rising. The author did a great job continuing to build Mia and Ethan's characters and their relationship. Ethan is trying to balance his love for Mia, his strained relationship with Mia's brother Nolan, becoming a werewolf and the packs expectation. Mia is trying to decide if Ethan will continuing loving her once he become a werewolf and if she will be able to accept him after the change, the hatred she is dealing with from the pack because of almost killing the alpha unknowingly and trying to become a stronger witch like her grandmother with the help of her mentor Jessa. There are new character introductions of Chad and Selene and it left me curious as to how they will affect further books in the series. The tie in with Jacob and Kelly from Cold Moon Rising also leave you excited with what can happen with them and the pack. The author has just the right amount of action, sexual content and mystery in this book to get you hooked and want a little more. The book was wonderfully written and I really enjoyed reading it and can't wait to see how the next book in the series expands the characters even more. So, if you like magic, shifters, and hot sex well you will love this book. I was given this book and just asked to give an honest review and honestly I loved it.

Wow! Sweet magical goodness! The Wolf Who Played With Fire is the third book in the Cry Wolf Series by Sarah Makela and it totally rocks! I loved it! Makela has once again demonstrated her amazing talent and incredible imagination by delivering another explosive addition to this exciting series. In Book One we learn that Mia Brooks is a witch albeit a very reluctant one, especially since none of her family knew of her magical abilities. Her grandmother was a powerful witch and she could be powerful as well if she would just accept her destiny and practice her craft, at least according to her friend, mentor and fellow witch, Jessa. So when Mia's magic gets a little mixed up while making a healing salve for one of Jessa's customers, supernatural forces are unleashed and she's suddenly neck deep in werewolves and trouble! Oh my! Things just couldn't get any worse! Or could they? Yep, they could! Her brother's best friend and her secret childhood crush, Ethan Parker, is home from  deployment. She just couldn't let Ethan find out her secret! But when danger comes out to play, Mia has to reveal her magic to Ethan and what ensues is an undeniable recipe for disaster! Ethan has been bitten and despite Mia's best efforts, Ethan is becoming a werewolf. What? Everyone knows that witches and werewolves are mortal enemies - or are they? Fate just can not be denied and neither can their mutual love and attraction for each other!  Now in Book Three, Ethan quickly finds himself caught up in the rescue of one of his new pack members and of course, Mia being the witch she is, must step up to the plate to prove to Ethan's new pack that she's not the enemy by helping to rescue Ethan and another member of the pack, Jacob Armstrong, a werewolf college student we meet in Book Two who has been captured and being held prisoner in a secret research facility. Oh my! Will be Mia be able to convince the wolves that she can be trusted ? Will Ethan and Jacob be rescued before it's too late? Will Mia and Ethan finally be able to enjoy a relationship and be together despite his pack and her family's objections? Shazam! Let the magic begin! The story is exciting, thrilling, magical, sweet, funny, romantic and arousing. The dialogue is smart, sassy and well written. The characters are adorable, captivating, fascinating, engaging and sexy. Makela combines these elements as only she can with her amazing skill to produce an extraordinary read! Sexy werewolves-check! Beautiful witch-check! Suspense, danger, action, romance and angst-you betcha! I loved it! Fantastic entertainment and a magical read!

Very good book. The beginning was a little long and hard to get into but once I got into the book it was easy to picture the scenes in my mind. I only wish the author would have given some more details with Jacob and his mate. Was well written.

The Wolf Who Played With Fire by Sarah Makela is the third installment in the Cry Wolf series.  Although the second installment was a novella, the three parts flow very simply together.  I downed them all in less than a day and am pleased with the results. There are so many directions this author can take from here.  I love the interaction between the witches and the wolves, just really well done.  Again, the story feels a bit rushed, but it holds together nicely at the end.

~ 3.5 Fire Stars ~ Quick, fun, fast-paced romantic read! The Wolf Who Played With Fire is book two in Sarah  Mäkelä Cry Wolf series. This is a continuation of the story from The Witch Who Cried Wolf. Another descent read in the Cry Wolf series. It’s a quick, fun, fast-paced romantic read. Mia our witch and girlfriend/lover to Ethan. I still had the same mixed feelings about her that I did in book 1. She is developing as a witch and not as scared to use her powers, but I still was frustrated that she does not know much for a witch. She has access to a grimoire and other books in the store she works at, so why dosent she read them and learn? Mia is also still hiding from her family who she really is. Ethan our solder and know new werewolf. I liked getting more of a POV from him. We get to learn about his struggles to still have a normal life along with his development into a werewolf. I appreciate the sturggles, but the gap between him and Nolan is too wide. We see that he has deep feelings for Mia almost like she is his mate, but it’s not said that she is (only implied).  The story is fast-paced and done in a POV style mixed narrative. Very clear who you where reading about. Ms. Mäkelä does a nice job with the POV. Ethan and Mia have chemistry, but after reading Jacob and Kelly’s story it’s obvious how unconnected I feel to Ethan and Mia. They are still hiding there relationship from Mia’s family. Not sure why and then we never learn about this promise that Ethan made to Nolan that was mentioned in book 1. I really like Nolan as a character and wish he was in on all the supernatural side of things. He has so much potential and I still feel like he senses what’s going on with Ethan and Mia. Maybe he has a little supernatural in him? I am really wanting to finish Jacob and Kelly’s story from Cold Moon Rising. We only get a glimpse of them through the eye’s of the pack in this one and it’s not said what happens to them. The sex was still mediocre for me, maybe because I don’t have a good connection to Mia and Ethan. I still ended up having several un-answered questions at the end of this book. The Wolf Who Played With Fire is a nice continuation in the Cry Wolf series though their are still things that need to be flushed out. I am really looking forward to the continuation of Jacob and Kelly and hopeful the author will give us that soon.

"The Wolf Who Played With Fire (Cry Wolf #2) by Sarah Makela 3 out of 5 stars Ethan and Mia are back in new installment of the Cry Wolf series and I have to admit that I was a little disappointed.  I wanted more Jacob and Kelly.  While their story is continued here, it is completely out of the pages and we only get information through the Pack.  I wanted to see it all firsthand so I was definitely bummed. After reading Jacob and Kelly's book it is even more obvious to me how unconnected I feel to Ethan and Mia.  Yes, they have chemistry...but I need more.  Mia is still hiding who she is and now she is hiding her relationship with Ethan as well.  It's a case of one too many secrets and I feel like the book would be even better if Makela could lighten the load a little.  Ethan struggles here to find a balance between his new life and his old one.  I can appreciate that but the gap between he and Nolan is becoming too wide.  I like the character of Nolan and I really feel like he would be much better served if he was in on all the supernatural side of things.  Plus, I still maintain that he senses what's going on with Ethan and Mia and to continue to hide it from him is silly. All of that aside, in order to follow Jacob and Kelly's story you must read this one.  Makela indicates, at the end, that the next book will be back to those two again.  I can't wait to be back in their heads and it's my hope that she will continue to focus on them. *I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.* Shannon, My Secret Book Spot

‘The Wolf Who Played With Fire’ is Book 2 in the Cry Wolf series by Sarah Makela. I was gifted a copy of this book in return for an honest review Finally! After patiently waiting, we get the continuation of Mia and Ethan’s story, and this reader is not disappointed! Ms. Makela has smoothly picked up the storyline from Book 1, ‘The Witch Who Cried Wolf’, and tied in the events from Book 1.5, ‘Cold Moon Rising’.  My questions from the cliffhanger endings have been answered with very intriguing results. And although our MCs dealt with angst over their situations, it was very satisfying to see Mia coming into her own with her witch powers and Ethan determined to stand up to the ultimatum he was given by the local pack alpha. The action is non-stop and the romance is hot! New questions, of course, deal with some of the other characters and whether Ms. Makela will share their stories in future books in the series. I love the direction this series has taken and can’t wait to see in what direction the next book will go. I’m definitely hooked and absolutely recommend this series to anyone who enjoys the paranormal romance genre.
