Beware the love that walks on four legs…
All her life, Felicia wanted to be wild, to be free of what society forced her to be: the perfect daughter, the perfect friend. Then she met Mark. Mark, of the piercing green eyes and wolfish grin. A bad boy with an easy charm and restless desire.
Mark knows what Felicia wants, and when he offers to take her on a picnic to an abandoned summer camp—a camp where dozens of people died—will she become another victim, or something more?
The Werewolf Wants Me, by Jackson Dean Chase, is a traditional werewolf story in the sense that people turn into werewolves, they search for their mates, and have strong family (or pack) values.
This book is different from Chase’s other books for several reasons. One of those reasons is because instead of having a female main character who is more of an outcast, in this book, the main characters are pretty, preppy type girls. I honestly don’t think it would have made a difference to me if she was preppy or angst ridden, but I could see how it would be more of a stretch for a preppy girl to be out playing in the woods.
In all honesty, this isn’t my favorite of Chase’s books. I felt like just as the story got intense, it was over. I would like to have had a little more story, maybe a few more scenes or at least pages. I did like his explanation of the consumption of human flesh by the werewolves and the purpose it serves. That was a different idea than I have heard before and pretty cool.
Length aside, The Werewolf Wants Me carries the same intensity and style that Jackson Dean Chase’s other books do. His books grab you and suck you in before you realize what hit you. His books are intense and emotionally driven while being short and to the point at the same time.
I recommend all of the books by this author. I know I only gave him 3 stars for this book, but don’t let that keep you from checking it out yourself. 3 stars for me means that I enjoyed the book and can see how other people might enjoy it, but I didn’t love it. So pick it up and take that chance. You might just find a new favorite author!
Read Jackson’s other books!
