[I received a digital arc for an honest review]

You Had Me at Wolf is my first book by Terry Spear. It’s the start of her new paranormal romantic suspense series, Wolff Brothers.

PI wolf shifter Josie Grayson is on the case to uncover a criminal and his accomplice attempting to get away with insurance fraud. When her partner for the case ends up sick she improvises and uses shifter Blake Wolff as her fake fiancé and cover story. Turns out he’s the co-owner of the hotel she’s staying at, and she also knows his sister from one of her past cases. With the help of his family and the local wolf pack she tries to collect enough evidence of her suspects before they move. She arrived hoping to catch a criminal, she didn’t expect to find her mate.

I don’t know what to say about this book. The plot itself is entertaining but the execution was just a swing and a miss for me. I felt like it was never going to end, usually when I am enjoying a book I get so lost in it that I don’t notice how much I have or haven’t read and that wasn’t the case with this book. At 22% in I liked the characters but there seemed to be constant information drops that never ended, and they actually continued through the rest of the book. By halfway there was too much theorizing going on between the characters about what may or may not have been going on with the suspects. Over wording left me feeling disconnected with the actual characters. The intimate scenes between the two main characters were also not my cup of the tea, some of the word choices made me cringe and oh my gosh their actually declaration of love was the most anticlimactic I have ever read.

This review ended up way more of a rant than I wanted it to be but unfortunately there just wasn’t much I enjoyed about this one. While it may be great for some paranormal suspense readers it was just not for me.
