Wild About You


Today’s post is on Wild About You by Kerrelyn Sparks. It is one of her Love at Stake books. You do not have to have read any of the others to understand the book. The cover has the two main characters looking sexy and stuff. The intended reader is someone who likes paranormal romance, funny novels, and nothing too hard to read, just fun. There is some mild language, some violence, sex and sexuality; for adults only. The story is told by third person close moving from character as the story needs. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- Handsome Howard…Hunky Howard… Hot Howard…
It’s not every day that Elsa Bjornberg feels delicate, not when she hosts a home renovation show where she can effortlessly demolish a kitchen. But from the moment she meets Howard Barr, this bear of a man makes her feel like a woman. And the way he looks at her, as if she were a pot of honey he’s like to lick…
Howard is not like most men. For one things, he’s a shapeshifter. And he always thought his celebrity crush would never amount to anything more than drooling at Elsa on TV. When his meddling vampire employer gets involved, the star is suddenly within his grasp- and within a hair of her life. For an ancient curse forbids their newfound love, and Howard is suddenly torn between his desire for her and his desire to keep her alive.

Review- This is a fun light read that is funny too. I love Sparks. She knows that she is writing fun, silly paranormal romance novels and she loves it. Nothing too serious and nothing too demanding to think about. Just fun, cute characters, and sweet romance. Elsa and Howard have a lot going for them. He makes her feel like a woman and she helps him feel brave enough to love again. Sparks is an okay writer. She is not going to convert you to paranormal romance if you do not like the genre. But if you want something that you can just enjoy and not think too hard about then she is for you. That said she does not have many plot holes. She does make a solid plot. I believed that Elsa and Howard really did want to be together. The dialog is what makes this book funny. It is playful and quick. I like this series and I will read more.
I give this book a Four of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I bought this book with my own money.
