Review: A Werewolf in Manhattan (Wild About You #1) by Vicki Lewis Thompson

4 Stars
Title:  Werewolf in Manhattan
Series:  Wild About You, #1
Author:  Vicki Lewis Thompson
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy, 
Publisher: Signet
Pages: 316
Format: ebook.
Purchase: Amazon

Book Description:

Emma Gavin writes about werewolves, but that doesn't mean she believes in them-not until a pack of real-life New York weres decide to investigate the striking accuracy of her "fiction".

When Aiden Wallace, son and heir of the pack leader, tries to sniff out Emma's potential informant, he discovers something even more dangerous- an undeniable attraction to her.


Ok so when it comes to adult reads I guess the best ones for my liking are the supernatural ones. This book was pretty good. I loved the fact that she was a writer and that she wrong about werewolves, and then bam…one walks into her life thinking she knows too much. This book had my toes curling at some points, and I loved
the feisty Emma. I love her independent needs and her stubborn determination to get what she wants. And the fact alone that Emma is a writer makes me love her. 

Not to mention the fact that she writes off everything as re-search. Making out with a Were=Research. Hanging out with Rich men=Research. She made me laugh at the things she defined as research. I also loved the sarcastic humour that they both brought to the table, and the odd line that was slipped in from his brother. And when Emma really wanted something she turns into a stubborn powerful woman…I appreciated that.


Emma: Author, independent woman, funny, and knows how to get something that she wants
Aiden: Hot, Alpha wolf. Rich and doesn’t mind spending it, but also knows when to appreciate what he has. Loyal and honourable.
Sylvia: A funny older woman who likes to pinch, and loves Emma’s writing.

The story line was a little wonky. I don’t really know how else to explain it. The main plot for the novel seems to change halfway through the book, making some of it feel awkward.

Overall (Writing style, story line, and general):

Overall the writing was very well done. I laughed many times and really enjoyed the characters. The plot needed a bit of work to make it all flow nicely, however it wasn’t anything that seriously hurt the novel. The characters were enjoyable, although sometimes you think they seem to have it all when you learn Aidan and Roarke both have astounding IQs, and come from rich families. 

However, that was not something that hurt the book overall either. The only thing that did catch my attention in this novel seems to be the fascination with an extremely expensive watch. Perhaps the author has a thing for watches?
