    Something to Howl About

    Christine Warren’s “Others” series is one of my favorites so I was very excited to know that she was writing a new series that takes place in the same world and Something to Howl About is the prequel to the new Alphaville series. The characters are strong, compelling and draw readers into the story and romance is full of sparks and heat which keep readers glued to the pages. The prequel is a great short story to get this series going, in fact the only thing that could possibly make it better would be if it was longer because I wasn’t ready for it to end, but that’s okay, I’m off to read Baby, I’m Howling For You now.

    Loved the sarcastic humor!

    This is a new to me author and I was excited to try something new. I have read shifter books before, but this felt different and I really enjoyed it. Alphaville is a spinoff series from this authors’ Others series. You don’t have to have read the Others series to enjoy this one. When I first picked up this book I chuckled at the title, I thought oh man I hope it isn’t cheesy. Well rest assured it is not cheesy, but boy is it funny! I snickered and barked out a laugh on more than one occasion because of the sarcastic snark. This is a quick novella that introduces the cast of characters of the town of Alpha, Washington. The opening line in the book, “Hi. Welcome to Alphaville, home of the freaks, the losers and the emotionally challenged. How can I help you?” This opening statement sets the tone for the rest of the novella. I enjoyed meeting the town mayor, John Jaeger, the charming secretary to the mayor, Vonnie Milner, and Dr. Annie Cryer, our heroine, a genetic scientist with two doctorates and a handful of master’s degrees and a she is wolf shifter. She was banished from her pack and has been drifting from place to place for the last three years while awaiting the opportunity to return to her pack. Her opportunity came knocking when her pack leader notified her that if she went to Alpha to help the mayor of the town with a genetics issue, she could return to her pack. Annie jumped at the chance but what she would rather jump is Jonas Browning! Her wolf kept pacing and insisting MINE as soon as she met him. Jonas Browning is a millionaire and known playboy in shifter circles. He is also the alpha of his brown bear clan and has a concern with the lack of bears reproducing and is worried their breed would become extinct. He had no idea that his bear would take to the good doctor! His bear has never reacted so quickly to another female! Thus, began the love story of Annie and Jonas. This novella was a quick, fun read and a cute love story. This is not a heavy, dark paranormal read. It is funny, snarky and sarcastic. Yes, it is insta lust/love but that is the way of the shifters, approach, sniff, pin and mount, to quote Jonas! There is no huge courtship as there is in a regular courtship. I loved the dual POV, so I could be in their heads. The only down side was that I wish it would have been longer. This was a great start to a new series! I look forward to more from this author and this series.

    Paranormal Romance

    Something to Howl About by Christine Warren Alphaville 0.5 This story hit the spot for me today! Why? I have been reading tons of words in many books but wanted something lighthearted and romantic that was a bit different, well written and had the ability to take me away from where and who I am and immerse me somewhere else and that is just what this novella did for me today. At times I kind of wished I were a shapeshifter with a mating instinct and alpha male nearby calling out to my were-side so I could experience that immediate awareness and act upon it. And yet, I suppose I shouldn’t complain as I have 39.5 years of marriage with the same man under my belt at this point in life…guess I am well and truly mated even without that mating bite ;) Okay…back to the story. This was so much fun! An exiled female werewolf shows up at the request of her alpha to help out a group brown bears living in Alphaville. Her skills are needed to find out what is wrong with the werebear community and their seemingly low fertility rate/production of cubs. SHE knows immediately that one of the men she meets is her mate but her mate quickly draws back and is leery. With a bit of communication by both the hero and heroine with people they trust the two do eventually end up with their mated HEA and that, too, was fun to read! This book made me smile a lot. It made me care about the characters and community and then want to find out what comes next in this new series. I wonder if all the characters in Alphaville are misfits or not and just who lives there and why. This novella is written by an author I have enjoyed reading books by before and this one was just as much fun as others I remember reading by her. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Finding a Reason To Stay

    This was an interesting story mainly due to Jonas's insistence to Annie that his kind, brown bears, did not mate like other shifters. This was despite his bear's desperate need for Annie, and her wolf answering in kind. The reason Annie was in Alpha didn't take a backseat to the romance developing between Jonas and Annie. She was there to do a job. It didn't mean she would be immune to destiny's call or the strength of her own longings. Short and sweet, there is plenty of room for more stories in Alpha with the way Ms. Warren wrote this story. Will there be a baby boom? Will new genes be introduced and contribute to the baby boom? Will other brown bears learn that the pull they feel toward their mate, the possessive and obsessive way they behave is normal? It'll be interesting to see what Ms. Warren does next.
