get a crash course in Werewolf 101,
This review is from: Animal Attraction (Paperback)
Since Chandra turned twenty one two weeks ago she's been besieged with night terrors and her senses have gone into overdrive. She's always been sensitive to sounds, smells and tastes but now just the scent of her neighbor's perfume is overwhelming - from the floor below. Chandra doesn't understand what's happening to her and since she's adopted she can't even ask her parents if there's something in the family background that could explain her odd symptoms.
Aside from dealing with her own body and mind's odd betrayal, Chandra's suddenly met a man whose cryptic messages have her questioning whether or not he knows more about her and if he plays a part in her future. When Zack thwarts an attack by what seems to be a gang she realizes that her life is about to change and not in a way that would coincide with her plans. Zack kisses her and tells her to come home and she'll find the place she sees in her dreams. Instead she returns to her home where she relives the events of that day before going to bed, only to wake up restrained in the arms of a man she doesn't know. According to David, he'd been guarding her when he heard her distress so he came in to protect her and his restraining her is as much for her own safety as his - she fights dirty. After receiving a kiss from David Chandra goes back to sleep only to wake up later more confused than ever.
Chandra's decides to pay a visit to the local library to do a bit of research on some of the clues that Zack and David had dropped and maybe even figure out if the place she dreams about actually exists. The only thing she does learn for sure is that Zack's surname is a name for a northern Slavic tribe whose men turn into werewolves. Her metabolism kicks in and Chandra begins to feel lightheaded so she decides to head home thankful that she has something in the car to tide her over. She only makes it into the car before David intercedes and makes the decision to take her home with him. It's obvious she has no clue what's happening with her own body but Zack, David and the rest of the pack will ensure that she makes her first change safely. There's also the little matter of her going through her first heat. Each man has his own part to play in seeing her through the all-consuming need for intercourse for hours on end. As if that isn't enough, as the pack princess it falls to her to pick her mate and the pack Alpha from amongst the men. Which man will she choose?
ANIMAL ATTRACTION is a sensuously erotic paranormal story that werewolf lovers are going to thoroughly enjoy! Charlene Teglia surpasses even my expectations with this delightful tale of paranormal suspense. The premise behind the story is a bit shocking if you consider one woman with twelve men but as you're pulled into the plotline the characters interactions make perfect sense and are more of an emotional connection than simply a way to relieve sexual urges. I adored getting to know Chandra and agonized over her situation along with her. She's a strong woman who is thrust into a unique situation and isn't sure how everything will work out. Ms. Teglia is a talented writer who has quickly made a name for herself and keeps surprising readers with new twists in her fast paced passionate and captivating storylines.
