STORY: Sometimes What You Covet Is Impossible To Keep
For werewolf Natalya Stravinsky, the supernatural is nothing extraordinary. What does seem strange is that she’s stuck in her hometown of South Toms River, New Jersey, the outcast of her pack, selling antiques to finicky magical creatures. Restless and recovering from her split with gorgeous ex-boyfriend, Thorn, Nat finds comfort in an unusual place: her obsessively collected stash of holiday trinkets. But complications pile up faster than her ornaments when Thorn returns home—and the two discover that the spark between them remains intense.
Before Nat can sort out their relationship, she must face a more immediate and dangerous problem. Her pack is under attack from the savage Long Island werewolves—and Nat is their first target in a turf war. Toss in a handsome wizard vying for her affection, a therapy group for the anxious and enchanted, and the South Toms River pack leader ready to throw her to the wolves, and it’s enough to give anybody a panic attack. With the stakes as high as the full moon, Nat must summon all of her strength to save her pack and, ultimately, herself.
REVIEW: I don’t usually read paranormal stories but this one had such an interesting blurb that I thought I’d give it a try. Now I wish I never did.
I didn’t like the main characters, I didn’t like the plot and I had a hell of a time finishing it. In the end I wondered if I would have at least liked the writing but even that left me cold.
If you’re looking for a very light fare in urban fantasy, you just might give it a go. But if you’re looking for a bit of a romance within the pages, I’m afraid you’ll be disappointed.
