Tom, the Alpha werewolf is back in town- not only to complicate her life but also to pull her from the fire again as the Houston pack demands her presence and forcibly employs her talents. Not her auditing skills. With a mini-troop of made werewolves padding along after her and every magical creature in Austin popping up in her apartment Sophie's in for a very hectic Valentine's day.
Someone will learn the secret of her true nature...and at least one relationship will end. But Sophie will realize that she has hidden depths.
I would have given this five stars but towards the end there was a lot of confusing Aztec business thrown in and the editing in the book was not so great. As the author reached back to her first book in the series to explain current events, the last villains mother kept being mentioned. But the one they referenced was actually her aunt which was distracting. Also, I like for the heroine to be in demand but it seemed she was horny for every man in this book, which kind of makes it hard to take the romance seriously. But the positives far out weighed the negatives and I definitely recommend giving this book a read.
Instead, the pack leadership demands Sophie come to them or else. She has no choice if she wants things to remain positive with her boyfriend Heath and at her accounting firm Withers and Young where she made partner. The Houston pack is outraged by her living inside their territory as strays are normally unacceptable, but what makes her worse in their lupine eyes is that the half-breed has been inside their turf under the werewolf radar screen for a few decades. To make amends and calm their fears of a rogue, she agrees to spy on the San Antonio pack, but quickly realizes she is not a good undercover agent and her new accounting client Southeast Airlines CEO Mark Sydney seems to be sniffing around her an awful lot making her wonder if he is ON THE PROWL with her his target.
The second Garou Texas werewolf tale is a terrific follow-up to a strong opener due to the heroine's actions and reactions as she no longer can hide under the radar scope. Sophie cannot understand how her world has crumbled so fast. However she is strong perhaps because she is the offspring of a witch and a werewolf; so faces her issues with courage albeit reluctant bravery as she would rather hide. Fans will appreciate her howling adventures that give biting meaning to the modern day wild west.
Just like the first book, this is a suspenseful urban fantasy novel with a lot of humour. Unlike the first novel, I think the plot could have used a bit more polish and explanations towards the end to be really convincing. Apart from this, the book was very entertaining and much fun and I will definitely buy the next book in the series.
Sophie Garou is back and is as entertaining as ever. One of the main attractions in this series for me is the contrast between her human life and her animal one. She's just made partner at a high powered auditor firm and is expecting a proposal from her boyfriend Heath. Of course, that is until her second nature gets in the way. Sophie has been flying under the werewolf radar all of her life but in this book her secret is exposed and she's faced with werewolves galore. Not her idea of an ideal situation!
Miss Garou's constant battle against unruly hair growth was as hilarious as in the first book. I particularly enjoyed a bathroom stall conversation between her and Lourdes, a new werewolf. They're comparing hair removal horror stories with different techniques likes Nair, waxing, shaving, etc. The challenges of being a modern day female werewolf! This talk reminded me of the banter I hear in public washrooms but with a supernatural twist. I like the way MacInerney gives the characters dilemmas that are similar to every day life. It makes them all the more relatable. When Sophie pulled out her back-up razor for her friend I couldn't help but giggle.
I wish I had Sophie's problems with men! She may me a magnet for trouble but she's also one for swoon worthy men.Read more ›
