Editorial Reviews


"WOLF BAIT has the best combination for a great romance read - a woman on a mission, a man with an agenda and sexy times that will make your toes curl." Krista, Krista's Dust Jacket

"Faith, lies, heartbreak, escapes, and forbidden lust filled secrets....I was sucked in from the beginning to the end. I am already anticipating the release of the next novel." Books Need TLC

"An addicting read that will leave you wanting for more long after it ends." -Bella, PBC                                    

"I devoured this book." ~ Books She Reads

"I loved this story! Abbi is seriously hilarious and I just love her and want to be her friend. Henry is sexy, funny and alpha and together it's hot." ~ Sandra, Two Book Pushers

"Overall, the sex is stellar, the plot is enjoyable and I'm now dying to move into book 2." ~ Heather, Obsessed with Myshelf

These two have sizzling chemistry and yet are polar opposites in their sexual prowess, with Abbi being a naive but sweet virgin and Henry being a dominant, controlled and skilled lover." ~ Nice and Naughty Book Club

All in all though what a great debut! I'm not a big erotic romance reader but this book was really good. I thought it was a good story as well as good steam. I recommend to those who enjoy erotic romance but also the NA lovers too. Any romance readers really unless you're really opposed to hot sex. ~Tricia, TLBC 

"Wolf Bait is sexy and hilarious, everything you could ask for in a book." ~ Reading After Dark

"The erotic scenes are written so well, and they are definitely scorchers." ~ Mama She's Crazy About Books Blog

From the Author

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.


I inhale deeply, reveling in the crisp ocean air as land approaches ahead. Chicago was in the seventies when I left this morning. Two layovers, a flight delay, and fifteen hours later, the fifty-five degree day's high has dipped to low forties and I had to dig my winter jacket out of my suitcase.
"Have you ever been to Alaska before?" the captain, a soft-spoken white-haired man named John asks, his hands resting easily on the ferry's wheel.
I shake my head, my gaze drifting over the sea of evergreen and rock as far as the eye can see. We left the dock in Homer thirty minutes ago. It didn't seem like it would take that long to cross, but Kachemak Bay is vast and wide and unlike anything I've ever seen.
And on the other side of it is my home for the next four months.
I'm so glad I remembered to pop an Antivert an hour before boarding. I'd be puking over the rails by now had I not. Boats and I have never coexisted well.
"So, what made you come?" I can tell John likes to talk, as much for conversation as to assess the foreigners coming to his homeland.
"A brochure," I answer simply, honestly.
He chuckles. "Yeah, it'll do that, all right. Lures plenty of folk our way."
I smile, though his words resonate deep inside. It "lured" me. Yes, that's exactly what it did.
Frankly, the brochure didn't need to work too hard.
When things take an ugly turn, people are always saying they're going to pick up and move far away. Australia, France, anywhere that puts an ocean between them and their problems. Most don't ever act on that. I certainly had no intention of doing so.
And then I went to that job fair in the city library, more than a little panicked about what I was going to do this summer. Recruiters were peddling administrative and counselor positions, trade internships, day care. Nothing I was interested in. Plus, they were all local Chicago-based positions. The last thing I wanted to do was stay in Chicago for the summer. I needed to separate myself from it and its bitter memories, if for only a few months until school started again in the fall.
But the idea of going back to Pennsylvania, where everyone including the cows had heard the nitty-gritty details about my breakup with Jed, was even more unappealing.
That's what happens when you grow up in a small town and then go away to college with your high school sweetheart, who's also the reverend's son, who you were supposed to marry the summer after you both graduate college.
Who you've been saving yourself for.
Who you caught with his pants down and thrusting into some raven-haired jezebel.
And, while in the depths of despair, though you know better, you tell your upstanding, churchgoing mama, who is known around town as much for her raspberry pie as for her big mouth.
That scandal sure gave the folks of Greenbank something to talk about during Pennsylvania's long, cold winter. It's been months since D-Day, or what I like to call Dick Day, when I caught him. February 2, to be exact.
I'm sure tongues were wagging across pews during church service. When I visited over Easter weekend though, I got nothing but sympathetic nods and pats. Jed, sitting in the pew directly across from us, earned more than a few glowers. Not everyone shared those feelings, though. His father, Reverend Enderbey, decided that giving a sermon on man's weakness for carnal flesh and the need for forgiveness and understanding would be more appropriate than discussing the resurrection of Christ that day.
Much like Jed promised me, Reverend Enderbey has promised my parents that this is just a momentary blip in Jed's faith; that he's feeling confused and needs to sort out his priorities. He'll come back to me, after he's done sowing his wild oats.
Why do they all think I'll want to take him back?
He broke my heart that day, and has continued breaking it daily, every time I see him walking hand in hand around campus with her.
He's not just sowing wild oats. They're dating now.
So when I passed by the Wolf Hotels booth at the job fair a month ago and spotted the pamphlet with a beautiful vista of snow-capped mountains and forest, I immediately stopped and started asking questions, and within ten minutes I knew that Wolf Cove was my ticket away from sadness, temporarily at least. I just needed to get myself to Homer, Alaska. They'd provide transportation to the hotel, subsidized accommodations and meals onsite, and weekly transport to Homer, if needed, and in turn I'd work like a dog and keep my mind occupied.
The best part? It was almost 3,800 miles from everything I know.
It sounded perfect. And unattainable. I walked out of that interview feeling hopeless, assuming that there was no way I'd get the job.
And yet I'm standing here today. I call that divine intervention. God knew I needed this miracle.
It came in the form of a phone call a week after the interview, with an official offer for a position in the Landscaping and Maintenance crew. I screamed. I even shed a few happy tears, which was a nice change from all the sad tears I've spilled since February. Knowing that I could avoid Greenbank, Jed, and my family, that I would be leaving my dorm room the day after my last exam and hopping onto a plane... that's the only reason I've held it together this long.

As a debut novel for West, I believe that Wolf Bait was a well done story. Those who have read romances like FSoG and the Crossfire series will find the similar trope of an older more experienced man who is paired with a younger and far less experienced (read: virginal) woman. Although the theme is familiar, I think West did a good job creating a distinguishable story.

Abbi Mitchell is a young and impressionable woman or high morals. She is in college and engaged to her childhood sweetheart, a preacher's son, when she discovers that he committed the ultimate betrayal. Using the excuse of "sowing wild oats" before he marries Abbi, he puts a pause to their relationship so he can see (and have copious amounts of sex with) other women. Abbi is devastated and heartbroken. Needed to get away from anywhere near a life that reminds her of him, she applies for a job at a high end resort in Alaska. Never imagining that she would get the job because of her lack of experience in the hospitality industry, Abbi is pleasantly surprised when she is offered the job. Escape. Freedom. Abbi is on her way to Alaska and straight into the wolf's den.

Well, that is Henry Wolf's den...errr...hotel.

Henry Wolf is rich, successful, and GORGEOUS and Abbi cannot help her instant attraction to him when she just thinks he's a sexy lumberjack. Yet, her attractions ramps up more when the lumberjack turns in the suave businessman that he is. Sparks begin to fly immediately between the pair, but Abbi is certain that her feelings of attraction are one-sided. Wolf often runs hot and cold with her. Awakening her desires with his burning gaze one moment, and then freezing her out with his cool disposition the next.

I'm fairly sure that if I looked in the mirror right now, I would see "SUCKER" written on my forehead. That's what I feel like. I was sucked in by a catchy title and a ton of rave reviews.

Never again.

Never again will I pick up a book that sounds even remotely like a virgin/billionaire story. This is a trope I'd gladly see die out. Because, though the idea sounds romantic and like that of a fairy tale...I've yet to find one that didn't make me feel like I was reading something ridiculous.

You won't find this helpful, because it's not. It's a rant. Feel free to hit that little 'No' box, you know you want to. It's all good, I won't hold it against you.

I opened up Nina West's Wolf Bait not quite knowing what to expect. The Cover was pretty. The synopsis was a classic story of heartbreak then forbidden lust. Then toss in that it is an erotic romance... and I figured sure, why the heck not, let's give this debut author a try!

Abbi has just had her heart broken in the worst of ways. She has found out that her fiance has cheated on her. They were supposed to wait until they were married and be each other's firsts! He wants her to wait for him to come back to her... Her family back in her small farm town want her to wait for him, insisting that he will snap out of this and she WILL take him back. Even his father the Minister feels that way! (Seriously people, can you imagine!!??) Well she is taking her life into her own hands, and instead of going home for the summer she packs up and takes a job in Alaska at a luxury hotel, Wolf Cove. Never guessing just how much this would change her and broaden her sheltered little life.

As soon as she gets Abbi's narrow, sheltered life is going to be blown wide open as she is roomed with women far more worldly than she is. As she parties with them and is exposed to things for the first time, sweet little Abbi's eyes are opened to new, intriguing and exciting things. Then she meets a stranger as she is out stumbling and drunk. Did she totally embarrass herself? Or open herself up to a word of new possibilities?

The writing in this book is great and sucks you right in. Abbi's character is easy to relate to. Once upon a time we were all that innocent! (I know it might seem like a long time ago now!) But think back... remember back to those days before you gave it all way. I actually remember talking to my mom (yes I was one of those who spoke openly with mommy!

Warning: this is the first in a series. This is a strangely important morsel that was missing from the book’s description.

However, that shouldn’t stop you from joining Abbi’s journey away from her a$$hole ex-fiance and into Henry Wolf’s bed. Abbi’s desperate to not go home for the summer. Not only would she have to deal with her ridiculously overbearing mother (Abbi, are we related?) but she would also have to deal with the pity stares since she found her ex-fiance f@#king a girl. This is sort of an issue since they go to a Christian College and they promised to save each other for marriage. F@#k you Jed, you f@#king @#ck.

So instead, she applies for a job at Wolf Resort…in Alaska. Four months away from everyone. Four months to be whoever she wants to be. Honestly, had she not gone to a Christian College, this is what college would have been like for her freshman year. But alas, she didn’t, so at least she has the option here and now. There are a lot of firsts going on in this book.

This is virgin innocence well played – and it’s really hot as Henry explores every inch of her untouched body. Of course, Abbi’s naivety is a little eye-roll inducing and her sudden ability to chuck out her ingrained religious beliefs is not entirely believable. Of course, that’s not saying I didn’t like that part.

Be prepared for an extremely mercurial man. Henry’s actions would be confusing to even an experienced woman, so Abbi actually got plenty of credit from me for being able to handle his crazy. Yet, there’s something that draws you to him as a character. He’s definitely complicated, and obviously hot. Everyone wants a piece of him, but he only wants all of Abbi.

I easily flew through this book and quickly became attached to the characters.
