Also by this author: Fashionably Dead (Hot Damned, #1)
I never planned on going back to Hung Island, Georgia. Ever.
I was a top notch Were agent for the secret paranormal Council and happily living in Chicago where I had everything I needed – a gym membership, season tickets to the Cubs and Dwayne – my gay, Vampyre best friend. Going back now would mean facing the reason I’d left and I’d rather chew my own paw off than deal with Hank.
Hank the Tank Wilson was the six foot three, obnoxious, egotistical, perfect-assed, best-sex-of-my-life, Werewolf who cheated on me and broke my heart. At the time, I did what any rational woman would do. I left in the middle of the night with a suitcase, big plans and enough money for a one-way bus ticket to freedom. I vowed to never return.
But here I am, trying to wrap my head around what has happened to some missing Weres without wrapping my body around Hank. I hope I don’t have to eat my words and my paw.
***This novella originally appeared in the Three Southern Beaches collection released July of 2014. This is an extended version of that story.
I received this book for free from Self Purchased in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
For some reason I noticed that the first book in Robyn Peterman’s series was free. I of course I downloaded them. This is Ready to Were from the Shift Happens series. Yes, you read that right. Yes, the book reads like that, and it is fantastic.
Ready to Were is about a young werewolf who is part of this covert team of badasses. Being one of the only females on the team has its perks, and its downsides. One such downside is that when young women begin to go missing, Essie is the obvious choice. The downside is that this will send her to Hung Island, Georgia. The same Hung Island that she ran away from a proposal, left her grandmother, and snuck off in the middle of the night. Oh did I tell you that she ran from a proposal by the Alpha?
If you haven’t read were books before, which umm… if you are reading this I am sure you have, the Alpha is the leader of the pack. Actually scratch that, if you haven’t read any shifter books ever and are new to this genre, then thank you for visiting us, glad that we could take your were book review virginity. What? It is the little things. Anywho so Essie has to suck it up and take Dwayne, her vampire, gay, best friend with her home. What? She needs a boyfriend? Obviously it doesn’t take her stripper granny to realize that he is not in fact a boyfriend, but the bestest gay vampire ever.
Of course she couldn’t be on an island and not see the man of her dreams, nightmares, future, and past all wrapped into one hot were body. I like the story, I like how Essie is a sarcastic bitch (literally, ha ha), her grandmother is a stripper, and her best friend is gay. I mean come on. If my grandmother was a were and a stripper, I don’t know if I would be embarrassed her like her. Or would I be totally freaking rocking out with her. I don’t know since my Grandmother is a farmer, but I can dream.
Robyn does a really good job at imparting personality and character into every single person she writes about. Were she writes about? I don’t know, either way, the story is pretty one dimensional and very focused, so don’t read it for some answers to why we are here. Read it because you want to read about some Were’s getting it on, many many times. Yes, it is almost were porn. Like thisclose 😀
