111) A Werewolf in Manhattan by Vicki Lewis Thompson

The Blurb :

A Fantasy Come to Life -- Literally. — Emma Gavin writes bestselling novels about werewolves, but that doesn't mean she believes in them -- and she certainly doesn't think she'll meet one. But that's exactly what happens when her books catch the attention of a rich and powerful pack of Manhattan Weres, who have kept their existence hidden for centuries. Alarmed by the accuracy of her novels, they're determined to find out if a renegade is acting as her informant.

Aidan Wallace, the pack leader's son and heir, knows he's the wolf for the job, but when he gets close to Emma, they are both surprised by an attraction too strong to deny. To surrender to it, Aidan will have to risk everything -- including the security of the pack he's sworn to protect.

My Thoughts :

When in Manhattan, read about Manhattan! That was my reason for starting this book while on holiday. I couldn't resist reading a story based in the city I was visiting. It seemed like the perfect read and I was right. Even if only the first third of the book was actually set in Manhattan.

Vicki Lewis Thompson is a relatively new author to me. I think this is only the second book I have read by the writer even though she has been on my radar for a very long time. I have to say I am impressed so far. Not too lovey dovey but totally paranormal her books remind me of Lynsay Sands and Molly Harper. With some nice humour in there for good measure there isn't much wrong with this the debut in the Wild About You series.

I liked the characters in this book and instantly adored Emma. Who wouldn't like a normal girl who writes about werewolves for a living and lives in Manhattan. Aidan didn't take much getting used to either and I was cheering for them both the whole way through. It was fun seeing where things would take the pair who were so obviously meant to be a couple.

The style is right and the content is good. There will be more books by this author going on my wishlist and I look forward to reading them.

Like you, this author has been on my list for a few years now, but somehow, her books don't get picked up. Perhaps now I will start reading her :) Thanks for the review.
