From the Back Cover
New York Times bestselling author Christine Warren introduces a new breed of hero―all the better to seduce you with…
Missy Roper's fantasies have revolved around Graham Winters since the moment they met. But the imposing leader of the Silverback werewolf clan always seemed oblivious to Missy's existence. At least he was, until Missy collides with him at a party and then abruptly runs away―arousing Graham's interest…and wild desires.
BIG BAD WOLF
Lupine law decrees that every Alpha must have a mate, and all Graham's instincts tell him that the sensual, beguiling Missy is his. Trouble is, Missy is human―every delectable inch of her. Convincing his clan that she's his destined mate, and keeping her safe from his enemies, will be the biggest challenge Graham has ever faced. And now that he is determined to have her―as his lover and as his mate―Missy's world is changing in ways she never imagined…
"Warren writes paranormal thrillers elaborately laced with scorching passion." ―Romantic Times BOOKreviews

If this is the first book you are going to read in this series - don't! Without having read serveral of the other books in the series first, you'll find the character development sub-par for this author. Also, compared to the other books this one has more 'not' absolutely necessary sex. Try starting with the Wolf at the Door, She's No Faerie Princess, or (my personal favorate) The Demon You Know.
According to her web site, there are 4 books that in this series that haven't been published (they were written through Ellora's Cave and could have been downloaded, but they are no longer available).
The actual reading order of these books are:
1. One Bite with a Stranger (Regina & Dmitri... the first of the Fantasy Fix's)
2. Big Bad Wolf (Missy & Graham)
3. not yet published (Danice & Mac)
4. not yet published (Corinne & Luc)
5. not yet published (Tess & Rafe)
6. not yet published (Logan & Honor)
7. Wolf at the Door (Sullivan & Cassidy)
8. She's No Faerie Princess (Fiona & Tobias)
9. The Demon you Know (Abby & Rule)
10. Howl at the Moon (Noah & Samantha)
11. Walk on the Wild Side (Kitty & Marcus)
12. You're So Vein (Ava & Vladimir)
13. Born to be Wild (Eli & Josie)
According to the web site, these books can be read alone or in order, but after reading You're So Vein, where Missy & Graham are already together and then starting Big Bad Wolf, where Missy & Graham get together, was a little confusing at first.
I think I would have given this series a 5 star if it wasn't for that confusion.
Now for the annoying stuff. I didn't get some of the things Graham did as Alpha. They didn't fit his character. He was being challenged by his cousin Curtis; over and over again Curtis showed his disprespect to his Alpha. The first thing Curtis did, the Alpha should have retaliated and reined him in. But instead he just kept letting Curtis get away with more and more B.S. It really made no sense, because he had been portrayed as being a strong, tough Alpha. Another thing that didn't make sense was that he was in a wedding party with Missy, so they had had quite a few interactions over a six month period. But yet when he sees and smells her at this latest party, suddenly he realizes she's his fated mate? That makes no sense. His sense of smell was described as highly developed, so he should have smelled her as they walked down the aisle or at one of the earlier parties. Yes, I understand Ava dressed her in a sexy dress but one sexy dress wouldn't make a difference to the smell which is supposedly how he recognized her. through to this installment.
What I liked: The interaction between Missy and Graham and the hot sex scenes.
What I didn't like: This is not a stand alone novel, the fact that Graham is just that much of a whore (in the 1st scene he admitted to sleeping with every non-human woman in the room and there are a LOT of people in the room), Unanswered questions, like why Graham does nothing to find out who the werewolf was who attacked Missy or to even mention it when they are headed to a pack function, Graham's waffling personality from strong alpha to poor leader because he has no control over his cousin, and the fact the plot is really only in place to string together sex scenes.
The sum up: As you can tell the dislike list is much longer than the like list, but since more than half the book is just about their sexual relationship really it's about 50/50 of like and dislike. I couldn't honestly recommend this one to anyone because it's a pretty poor effort, but if you want a sexy read that isn't offensive and won't put any strain on your brain this is fine, but if you want a sexy read there are a lot better options out there. Recommended only for serious werewolf lovers. 2 1/2 stars.
