2.0 out of 5 stars A Little too depressing for my taste...., January 28, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Strip (The Big Bad Wolf Series) (Kindle Edition)
I Loved the Hero Malcolm Cole, he deserved better than this book. He NEVER got to save the day or save his lady love. He got his but kicked one time too many and was thwarted EVERY time, he never came through no matter how hard and how well he tried. That sucked! The heroine Charlie was OK for the most part, except they tried to make her too good to be true to the point where she just made absolutely STUPID decisions. There was only minimal interaction between Charlie and Malcom in the book, tHey only had a few scenes together. There was the introduction of alot of new characters, but it got to be too many after awhile. The bad guy was uber bad, which was fine but he stole the book from the leads. No matter how powerful a group of the "most powerful Alpha Werewolfs & the supreme wearwolf" were they could not even hold him back for more than a minute.

If the book had been more about Charlie and Malcom and not everyone else, it probably would have been good. They did bring Lily back from the 1st book, The Big Bad Wolf, her Alpha was being a total jerk and she called him on it and did the right thing instead of letting him stop her, loved that scene.!!

There was an extended S&M Torture scene between the bad guys (one of whom ended up being her uncle, sick!!) and Charlie, very graphic and pro-long. Did not like it at all. If your in to forced S&M then maybe you will be OK with it, but it was too much for me. And she got over it in about an hour.

To me this book had so much potential and even had great characters, but the emphesis was all on the wrong parts, and the hero and heroine should spend more than 5 minutes together before their not-even happily ever after!

lady raven, plaes dont let this negative review stop you from reading a really good book. I was going to do the same thing but then i said forget it and bought the book and i am so glad i did. this book was aswome. malcolm and charlie have a lot of moments in the book and he does defend her in more than one way. and what about for girl and female power. women dont need men to defend them and this book proves that.

believe malcolm shows up and shows out in the spell which is book 3. I am currently waiting for book 4, the hunt

I have had the BBW series for quite a while and stopped when I saw where it was going with the S&M, rape, etc. I actually pretty much detested every character in what I have read in it. I love Heather's (Vampire) Kings series and gobble them up the moment each is released, but will never read another wolf book by her. In fact, other than Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling series I'll likely never read another wolf book again (and hers are not werewolves; they are MUCH better). Just sick of the whole idea, and the BBW series has a lot to do with it, unfortunately.
