Review: Werewolf in the North Woods (Wild About You #2) by Vicki Lewis Thompson

Title:  Werewolf in the North Woods
Series:  Wild About You #2
Author:  Vicki Lewis Thompson

Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Penguin Group
Pages: 336
Format: ebook
Purchase:  Amazon | 
Book Description:

When she used to walk around her grandfather’s property out­side Portland, Abby Winchell loved the idea that Bigfoot was somewhere out there too. Now her grandfather swears he’s seen two creatures that fit the legendary description—and he has evidence. Sort of. Grandpa Earl may be a bit dotty, but when his neighbors invite a renowned anthropologist to disprove his theory, Abby decides to send the man packing...until she sees how hot he is.

Anthropology professor Roarke Wallace can’t risk news be­ing made of a Bigfoot sighting in the north woods—not with a local pack of werewolves to protect. Disproving the evidence should be easy, but ignoring Abby is not. Her fiery red hair makes him want to sit up and beg, and this obvious attraction is making the pack suspicious.…

Review:

This one was much better than the first. I found the story line without as many holes, although some times just conveniently fall into place, I found the situation more enjoyed, and I found the characters more enjoyable. Although I loved the idea that Emma, the lead female in the first in the series, was a writer there is something about Abby that seems to make her more relatable. Maybe it’s the fact that she is doing everything for her Grandfather. I dunno, but I know I like her. I know that I like that she uses her feminine wiles to get Roarke’s attention. I like that this one took place
outdoors too. Something about them not being tied to a room all the time made this book far more fun to read. Then there was Roarke. This guy has man masks to wear. The nerdy professor (he takes on an Indiana Jones persona thinking people will take him seriously), then there is the Alpha male strong and determined, and then there is the shy guy. This book had many different emotions, many sexy moments, and a pretty great story line that introduced some furry new beasts.

Good:

Abby: She’s determined. I like that. She is not afraid to blackmail someone for a good cause. I like that too.

Roarke: He’s nervous and shy to shift in front of Abby, he’s also possessive, passionate, determined, a genius, and doesn’t want to fight with her. Love it!

Bad:

There are some minor things such as the emphasis on expensive watches, Abby coasting by with some not so believable lies and some awkward storyline moments. But, although they were awkward they didn’t necessarily hurt the over all story

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

Overall the writing was decent, the characters were loveable, and the story was one that I appreciated reading. I’m definitely picking up the third in the series, and I will have to check out the novella. I have to say I am glad that I found another adult series of the supernatural genre.
