BAD WOLF is Book 7.5 in Jennifer Ashley's Shifters
Unbound series. I don't feel it's necessary to have read
all the previous books in this series to enjoy BAD WOLF,
but I recommend reading the novella LION EYES which
immediately precedes this story. Some characters in BAD
WOLF made a first appearance in LION EYES. No matter the
length of the story, you can always be assured of getting
something amazing when the author is Jennifer Ashley, and
BAD WOLF doesn't disappoint.
Broderick is an example of the kind of hero, expertly
created by Jennifer Ashley, who is both strong and
caring. Often I find that some authors will equate
strength with acting barbaric. Jennifer Ashley proves
that doesn't have to be true. Broderick has many alpha
male traits, is often loud, and doesn't always express
himself well, but he respects Joanne's strengths -- even
though they vary greatly from his -- and always treats her
like she matters. At one point he asks her to teach him
her computer programming skills because he wants to
understand her better in addition to recognizing what an
asset it is to possess those skills. That tenderness and
desire to understand his mate better, through the work
she's passionate about, make Broderick not just another
gruff yet sexy guy.
A computer hacker and a shadowy bad guy add action and
excitement without drowning out the romance. I love that
a human woman is able to help save the day, even though
she doesn't have the physical strength that some of the
other characters in BAD WOLF have. As with previous
stories in this Shifters Unbound series, it's
ultimately a group effort that solves the mystery and
makes a happy ending. Shifters live together and function
as one big family. I'm intrigued by Broderick's brothers
and look forward to reading about them in future stories.
BAD WOLF is a thrilling and sexy romance with a dash of
mystery. Broderick is an endearing hero and he and Joanne
make a good team. It's great seeing familiar characters
like Tiger and Spike in BAD WOLF. BAD WOLF has the
perfect amount of excitement and sexiness. I can't wait
for the next installment in this Shifters Unbound
series by Jennifer Ashley!
Broderick is stuck looking after some Collar-less Shifters who
are driving him crazy, but heâ€™s putting up with them for
Joanna, the human woman he, for some reason, wants to impress.
The new Shifters are bringing danger to Broderickâ€™s family,
though, and heâ€™ll need Joannaâ€™s help to protect them.
A short novel of the Shifters Unbound series, this story
follows Bear Attraction and Mate Bond.
