Book Description

To save his lover, he must become his own worst nightmare.

Dr. Nick Sewell. Non-conformist. Werewolf. The first puts him at odds with his colleagues’ idea of how an All Saints College lecturer should behave. The second, bestowed upon him by an ex-boyfriend, puts him at odds with himself.

There’s his tendency to change into a wolf on the full moon. And his visceral attraction to Julian Lauder, a troubled young German student. Despite his determination not to act on his desire, Nick’s brutal response to seeing Julian with another man frightens them both. At first.

Then Nick learns that Julian is not only a naturally submissive werewolf, but one who has learned better how to deal with just being a werewolf. That explains the attraction, but it doesn’t make it any easier when the tables are turned, and Julian—once the student—is now teaching Nick…who still isn’t happy about conforming to the “werewolf way”.

Meanwhile, reports of a strange wolf stalking the town barely register on Nick’s radar—until Julian disappears. Accusing eyes—both wolf and human—are turned toward Nick. Even with the help of friends, hope is growing as cold as the kidnapper’s trail. Unless Nick gives free rein to the wolf’s inhuman power…

Warning: Contains hot outdoor sex, alliterative insults, allusions to abuse, and really awful sherry.

More About the Author

JL Merrow is that rare beast, an English person who refuses to drink tea.. She read Natural Sciences at Cambridge, where she learned many things, chief amongst which was that she never wanted to see the inside of a lab again.

She writes across genres, with a preference for contemporary gay romance and the paranormal, and is frequently accused of humour. Her novella Muscling Through was a 2013 EPIC Award finalist, and her novel Slam! won the 2013 Rainbow Award for Best LGBT Romantic Comedy.

I've read nearly all of JL Merrow's books and this is one of the best. I couldn't wait to read the next chapter and despite being someone who does usually read supernatural literature, I am now hooked ! Great pacing of the story, and so descriptive you feel you know these characters. Just want the sequel now ! I want to know what happened to them afterwards ! Loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Read 20 May 2011
By LAS Reviewer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Grad student teachers are never supposed to have a crush on their students, even if the cute boy isn't technically *his* student. That's the dilemma haunting Nick. Not only is he a werewolf, which cuts down on potential boyfriends to begin with, but he's got a terrible crush on freshman Julian. Knowing that Julian is too young and likely not interested Nick tries to put his feelings behind him. But when Julian reveals he's also a werewolf but with a dangerous past, Nick is torn between wanting to protect the young man and walk away. The choice may be the hardest Nick has ever had to make.

Camwolf is an intense and interesting werewolf tale that definitely stands out from the pack. The story is somewhat familiar - two werewolves get together but are haunted by abuse from an earlier pack. The difference is of course the writing and the characters. Both men feel real and genuine as they struggle with their past and present. Julian is quirky, flawed, interesting, and definitely an easy scene stealer while Nick's more gradual change is subtle but as important. Together they make a compelling couple with good chemistry and a lot of romance. The sex scenes especially are well handled and hot enough to make you squirm.

The story moves along quickly with good characters all around. The solid supporting players definitely add a lot to the story, so much in fact one of the secondary characters, Julian's best friend, shares narrating duty with Nick. Julian never actually has a narrative voice, though he definitely has a lot to say in the story. Instead he's seen through others' eyes, which makes for a different kind of story. I think it mostly works and works well here but may not be to all readers' tastes.

For those shapeshifter fans this is a must read. It's intense, engaging, and never lets your attention waiver. Even those romance fans that are not always big on werewolves will appreciate the great writing, smooth style and interesting story. It's an easy one to recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars A wolf story with good writing and a bit of originality 5 Oct. 2012
By Charly T. Anchor - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Warning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS.

Rating: 7/10

- Merrow creates a nicely rounded picture of academic life at Cambridge without relying on too many physical descriptions of the city or the colleges. The depiction of Cambridge in this book is atmospheric, not just visual.
- There are a few interesting details about Julian's werewolf life that are unusual and creative.
- Merrow's writing typically has a serious tone, sometimes bordering on somber. This makes the little bursts of humor stand out. One of my favorite humorous passages is this: "Well, this was all just so terribly British, wasn't it? All of them dancing politely around the elephant in the room, leaving Nick totally confused as to whether it was in fact an aardvark."

- I realize that as long as the point of view from which a story is told is consistent within scenes, that it's never technically wrong. That doesn't stop me from thinking that it's strange, though, to read a book in which half the scenes are told from the perspective of one of the romantic leads, and the other half are told from the perspective of the other guy's...friend.
- Partly because we never see inside of Julian's head, I had a hard time being convinced to like him. He's a little twit at the start of the story, often intentionally, and other than his physical beauty, I didn't see much about him that was attractive.

Overall comments: I think those who particularly enjoy werewolf stories (like I do) will find some fun, original details here, and those who don't will enjoy Merrow's writing. She explores her wolf character's psyche more deeply than many authors do, and I liked seeing Nick's doubts and hesitation, as well as his fear about what it means about him when he allows his wolf side to run free and he turns into a wild animal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent paranormal 26 July 2011
By octobercountry - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've just read my very first gay werewolf novel (yes, I was a shape-shifter virgin), titled Camwolf by J. L. Merrow.

I've only just discovered Merrow's work, having recently read two pieces of her shorter fiction, so I thought I'd try the single novel she's had published at this time (though she's written and had published quite a few short stories and novellas). And this one didn't disappoint.

Now, a quick browse on Amazon shows the werewolf/shape-shifter genre is quite popular---there are a surprising number of gay-themed books out there that fit into this category. However, I have never read any others and so can't say how well this novel compares to the rest. But (given that I'm not overly familiar with the genre) I did think it was a decent entry in the field---I enjoyed it.

As a rule, I'm not at all fond of the presence of a dominant/passive vibe in the gay relationships I read about in novels, nor of one partner being overly jealous or possessive. I much prefer a pairing which is equal in every way. However, given the whole wolf-pack scenario, I can overlook such elements in a story like this; it didn't bother me like it might have in a novel without a paranormal setting.

So, if you're a fan of paranormal fantasy, by all means give this one a try---it's not high art, but it was fun to read. I'm looking forward to reading many more stories by this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars weres at college 1 Jan. 2012
By amf0001 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nick was bitten by a lover and it all goes horribly wrong from there. Now he is a lone wolf, knowing little to nothing about were culture, struggling. He is also a History Don, lecturing students. His solution is to be celibate or at least isolated. But then there is Julian, the young German student, who is catching his eye.

I really liked this book. In the beginning neither man was sure about the other's agenda. Julian longs for protection after a brutalized past, Nick wants a twenty first century relationship amongst equals, but his werewolf side keeps getting in the way. By the end, both men know a little bit more about their inherent natures.

I liked how they interacted and liked their totally believable chemistry together. I rate this a reread and a keeper.
3.0 out of 5 stars Camwolf 4 Nov. 2014
By Daniel Bowen - Published on

I enjoy a good shifter story and I happen to read a lot of them. Camwolf came at me unexpected. I read the blurb here on Amazon and read the reviews. Not once does it mention the way the story is written. The wording is so different and due to the vague references of 'a small college' odd terms like 'pigeonhole' . . . Obviously that was a message center with cubby holes for mail. Anyway, I got so lost in these unfamiliar terms that the story didn't flow. I could eventually figure something similar to what was said, but because I've never been to England I was not familiar with the place, I was 'lost'. 'A-Z' was another that I thought was a phone book. Or an address book. But I am told by someone from Germany I am wrong on both. And the phrases I am familiar with as coming from England were not used.

So I read the story and sat back and thought yes, I did enjoy it, but not fully. And it was set in Cambridge? I didn't know the setting was Cambridge! Yes, this is an older professor (40 or so) hooking up with his student (19) - Both werewolves and both are struggling with their past. It was a very slow moving relationship with some misunderstandings. Both main characters had personality flaws and they didn't endear themselves to me as a reader. Nick had anger issues and had become physically violent in a past relationship. Julian is young and a submissive wolf. He never sees how he's hurting his friend who happens to be a girl. He jumps to conclusions and walks away instead of talking things out with Nick. He's immature and pathetic and it seems all he has going for him is his family money and his looks. Sad. - Dan's WIfe
