    Product Description

    Over the river and through the woods

    After almost a decade of self imposed solitude, Axton has a boyfriend. Leander might be a thousand miles away, but that still counts, right? Sure, maybe they haven't actually talked about their relationship status yet, and Axton might be a gay werewolf and Leander might be a human, but Ax is pretty sure things are going well. There's an open invitation for him to visit Los Angeles and stay in Leander's apartment, but Axton almost can't make himself take it. Who's going to take care of his forest while he's gone?


    Leander Avilez is a lawyer juggling a busy professional life, an intense workout schedule, and a long distance relationship with a werewolf boyfriend who doesn't even own a cell phone. Beset by aggressive conference calls and disappearing taco trucks, he's resigned himself to trekking out to Montana if he wants to see Axton again. So when Axton calls the office to say that he's been on the road and he'll be there in a few hours, Leander isn't prepared in the least. Only because he prides himself on being a man of action and romance does he manage to meet Axton on time.

    An American werewolf in LA

    Shy by nature and secretive by necessity, Axton wants to know what kind of cover story Leander has prepared to justify his suddenly visiting friend. After all, Leander has a lifetime of womanizing behind him and Axton is his first boyfriend--so Ax expects to be explained away, as he has always been. Instead, Leander takes Axton on blitzkrieg of…dates?

    Werewolf romance never includes family dinner, and shapeshifters don't do picnics, but Axton's willing to be the exception, especially when the dates end in hot gay sex.

    Trouble in paradise

    From the dojo to the desert, Axton and Leander spend time together. Leander is charming and funny even when he's caustic, and Axton has his own brand of understated humor. They're falling for each other hard, night after night. Axton's started making friends, even if he's a little terrified of Leander's personal assistant at first.

    Happy as he is, city life wears on Axton. He misses the forest; he misses hunting for his dinner. Maybe he needs it, or maybe he can get used to life without wild moonlit runs, without the sweet tang of fresh blood on his tongue.

    But when a bar fight goes wrong and Axton ends up face to face with Dana, his bad boy ex-boyfriend…

    Will he even get a chance to find out if he could adapt to city living?

    All's fair in love and war

    Suddenly things start to get tense and danger seems to lurk around every corner--or maybe that's just Dana again. The thing is, Axton knows that danger and Dana are by no means mutually exclusive. But despite their long history and bad break up, Axton still wishes Dana would understand his life choices.

    Leander knows Axton is keeping secrets, but can he figure out why before someone else pays the price for their happiness?

    Romance! Action! Adventure!

    If you're searching for excitement, look no further. This book has everything from steamy sex to car chases, with a heaping side of sweetness. Get to know Axton and Leander as they get to know each other, and join them as their relationship unfolds and grows. It's a wild ride, and it's just for you.

    5.0 out of 5 stars 5* sequel to winter wolf 5 Sep 2014
    By Lisa
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    A fantastic sequel to winter wolf. The characters grow, the story develops and I can't wait for the third book. The synopsis on the Amazon page does this book an injustice, reducing what is a really brilliant book to that simple one page with almost too much information. This book has so much more depth and I couldn't tear myself away from it. Few typos but I can easily overlook that when I'm so lost in a story because it's so good!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Another lovely read 18 Feb 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    As with the first book in this series, I absolutely loved this book.
    Axton's character in this book was consistently shy and partially submissive, as in the first book, but there were growth in both of the characters that was both believable and helped to move the story along.
    I liked the introduction of a new werewolf character in this book, but thought that Axton knew a little to well how to behave around him; after spending ten years alone, I would have thought that Axton would be awkward and uncertain around the werewolf, as he is with new humans.
    As with the first books, the only reason this book isn't a five-star read for me is because I found a few spelling and grammar issues, and the actual set-up of the book (chapter titles, paragraphs, scene-breaks, etc.) was a little off-putting for me.
    Similarly to the first book, though, in terms of plot and content, I loved this book, and would definitely recommend it.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great sequel 14 Feb 2014
    By luvs2read - Published on
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Sequel to one of my favourite shifter romances in 2013. City Wolf takes up exactly where Winter Wolf left off. Axton is nervously making plans to travel to the city to visit Leander. The first 50% of the book is like a honeymoon period where Axton and Leander live together in LA. Axton remains adorably skittish and Leander is the perfect boyfriend. We get to know Lee a lot better in this volume as we meet his family and friends and see what he's like away from the woods. I thought the city wolf of the title referred to Axton living in LA but as the story progresses Leander's protectiveness and community spirit make you realise that in fact it refers to him.

    The intimacy between the two heroes is arousing and very romantic. They tend to wax poetic in their thoughts and declarations to each other which was totally swoon-worthy except for right at the beginning where Lee's quotes of love to Axton felt a little awkward. They have that tragic Montague/Capulet-forbidden-love vibe going on and inevitably problems arise when someone from Axton's past intrudes on their bliss and threatens their security.

    The ending is shocking and sad and OMG Axton, How. Could. You! I thought the wait for book 2 was hard but the time between now and book 3 is going to be a thousand times worse. There are a small handful of typos but not enough to distract me from reading.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Book Review by Lirtle 12 Sep 2014
    By PrismBookAlliance - Published on
    Format:Kindle Edition
    4.50 of 5 Stars

    For original review see The Prism Book Alliance Blog online

    I was a mere 2% into this book and I said: I’m already saying awwwww, I’ve really missed Axton and Leander from Winter Wolf Book 1 of Axton and Leander’s story and, wait for it, I’m actually going to use the word adorable.

    The tone of City Wolf is different than that of Winter Wolf, the opener in this series. It’s because the personalities of both Axton and Leander are front and center. Axton can’t pretend he’s a mystery to Leander anymore, and Leander can’t hold back his energetic humor in an attempt to hide his true feelings. These two are in it for the long haul.

    Firsts. Axton and Leander both are checking off several of those boxes under the relationship category. These all make for amusing revelations and sweet conversations. Their directness and honesty with each other in most things are refreshing and help propel the story forward.

    Lest there be an ounce of doubt, this is seriously romantic. Lest there be any concern, this is unrelentingly hot. Lest there be any worry, this is such a wonderfully fun read. I could barely keep the grin off of my face – I stopped trying – as Ax and Lee navigate relationshiplandia, poking fun at themselves as much as each other.

    About a quarter of the way through and I already felt like I had been given a full story in the best way. Still so many pages of Axton and Leander to sop up like a freshly made oatmeal biscuit drowning in mouthwatering melted buttah. Buttah, I tells ya!

    There is joy in Wayne’s writing. Joy. In the writing. It’s scrawled all over like the walls of a mile-long cave painting filled with scenes of dancing, eating and sexing. It grabbed my hand, this writing, and I just as joyfully skipped along the pages with it. Joy.

    The supporting characters are used as touchstones, avenues of realization for both Axton and Leander. Axton starts to learn, finally, how it feels to truly have a family, a family that has chosen you and will back you up no matter what. Leander comes to understand himself better than ever before, especially when it comes to Axton, to loving him.

    Christina and Leander exchanged looks.
    “A blusher,” she said.
    “I know,” he said, grinning.
    Axton buried his face in his hands.

    I paced myself while reading this. I didn’t want to miss a silly, romantic, meaningful word, and I wanted to make it last as long as possible.

    This book did have a few typos, but they didn’t slow me down. Just be aware.

    Also, during one of the larger, fast-paced action scenes, I had a bit of trouble following where all of the characters were and what they were doing – almost like missing or having one too many limbs doing this and that.

    The baddy is a little predictable and seemingly unstoppable but he’s got his own issues and we do get to see a bit of that, especially in his interactions with Axton.

    Things I love about this story, in case it wasn’t obvious yet:

    • This is not just a romance, but a story about their romance, that’s how it feels.
    • No false hesitations are foisted upon these two, they work hard at not shying away from emotion. They may want to sometimes but they admit instead of run, know instead of guess.
    • This is not at all your typical werewolf story. It’s about two people, one of whom just happens to be a were, but he’s had his own issues and difficulties in life. He’s not perfect, not invincible.
    • Axton and Leander are both funny in their own unique ways, which made it so easy for me to picture them during any one of their animated discussions.
    • They work through things, even when they vehemently disagree. Gee, hmm, you mean like adults? Yes, like adults.

    Things I love about Wayne’s writing:

    • Superbly entertaining
    • Unbridled… yep, you guessed it, joy
    • Smart dialogue
    • Shy and bold all at once
    • Emotionally driven physical descriptions

    The end… the end!! I can’t even. Want to know why? Because it’s not the end, there is a third book coming. This means all will be right with the world once again. This is the true beginning! (Right??! Ms. Wayne???!!)

    I’m so very happy that I took a chance on Winter Wolf, recommended by a friend, and overjoyed that I’ve now gotten to read City Wolf. Axton and Leander, you both have places in my heart. I’ll risk it being bruised for you.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing sequel to unique first book. 2 Mar 2014
    By Amazon Customer - Published on
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I loved the first book; it was unique and different. I think most people who loved it too will be able to enjoy this one. And I appreciate the author wrote a sequel. Unfortunately, this kind of dissolved into a hot mess for me, and I finally gave up after the bizarre screaming match in which two grown men reverted to high school teenage girls. I officially stopped at 60%, and then skimmed all the way to the ending. None of the new side characters interested me, and I missed the magic of the first book. This became a generic MM shifter book. A little sad, but likely this is just my problem, and I'm sure you will enjoy this book more.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Bite me! 15 Feb 2014
    By drsw - Published on
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I found the first book in this series, Winter Wolf : A Werewolf Romance On Snow (Axton and Leander) by accident and promptly fell in love with Axton and Leander. I didn't expect a second book but was thrilled to discover one was coming. I downloaded City Wolf yesterday and finished it today. It is excellent, even better than I had hoped. I loved the character development, getting to see new sides of Leander, his life and friends and even more surprisingly new aspects of Axton. The adventure and excitement in this story took me by surprise and I want the next book NOW! Please? Don't miss this series. It is well written, well plotted and I am in love with the characters. Ms. Wayne I will buy anything you write.
