Aside from that the story was interesting: Jake Savage is a workoholic werewolf shifter desperate to make his way higher up the corporate ladder in advertising. In this case that is either partner in his current firm or a new lead position at a new firm. His dreams of making partner are destroyed when he impetuously quits his job. Now everything hinges on an interview with a new firm. During the interview it becomes clear that the firm places a large emphasis on family. When he is invited to a weekend retreat with the two other candidates and his potential boss, he lies and says that he does have a wife. So now where to get one.... When the potential boss asks to see the mysterious Mrs. Jake shows him a picture of his neigbor, Terry Contralto, a sexy werewolf shifter. The only problem is that they don't get along. But Terry has gone through financial difficulty and when Jake offer her money to pretend to be his wife, she accepts. Sparks fly and what should have been a madcap weekend took a strange detour when an ancient werewolf law sends Jake and Terry on a treasure hunt.
Spoiler alert: I really thought the job should have gone to the third candidate. Peter cites maturity as one of the reasons he decides to hire Jeff. I call BS on that. Sure, lying about having a wife was immature but you know what, so was creating a ridiculous treasure hunt and sending your insanely pregnant wife around on said hunt ignoring any concern for her health. The book alludes that a scare in a fun house sends her into early labor. Whose brilliant idea was that? Plus it's not much of a treasure hunt if you are told exactly where to go. Anywho, given the emphasis on family and Jeff's utter lack of concern for his wife, I just thought that Peter's choice was unlikely.
There is apparently a second installment. I love serials but I won't be buying any more of these. I'll overlook a great deal of editing issues if the story is good enough but it just wasn't. The author also spent a lot of time "telling" us rather than "showing" us the story. Again, it felt like stage instructions for a play.
Thank you so very much for writing it.
Thinking on your feet can be good, but it can also bring a whole lot of trouble. This is where upstart businessman Jake lands himself when he shows off his sexy next door neighbor, creating a marriage that only exists in his own imagination. I kept flipping through the pages and wasn't disappointed when Terry found out about Jake's stunt. Her surprise and reluctant agreement to go along with the facade kicks the excitement up to a whole new level. And then the real fireworks begin...
A simmering mutual attraction roils beneath the surface. It takes awhile for Terry and Jake to act on their emotional and carnal tensions, but when it happens, it's satisfyingly HOT. Werewolf and neighbor soon find themselves becoming husband and wife in all the usual ways, while rivalries behind the scenes threaten to implode everything.
Dawn's Steele's hybrid storytelling never fails to impress me. Like others she's written, this book is a fine mix of New Adult, quirky romance, and paranormal drama. Shaken, not stirred. But more importantly - it works wonderfully! Hope to see her publish more shifter books in the future.
