The first half of this book was pretty good. Love the chemistry between Quinn and Cassie. BUT... the second half was a whole other story... I had to force myself to finish it. Skimmed some as the writing became repetitive. And the story line IMO unraveled. I had a hard time with the many times the main characters were fighting with the "bad guys" and shifted/changed into their were-creatures, changing back into human form being naked at times then it being said they had clothes, then being naked again. The ending just didn't make much sense to me, the reason for the secondary bad guys, the why of why they were bad, what they wanted with Cassie and Quinn in the first place never really made sense. I understand the story continues with more books, but I won't be reading on to find out what happens with the other bad guys. I really didn't care near the end what was going to happen, there was way too much dialogue, even the intimate scenes were a bit eye-roll worthy.

Wolf at the Door was a decent read. It started out slowly, but picked up the pace half-way through. It's basically about a group of fanatics who call themselves the Light of Truth, threatening to unveil the paranormal world of The Others. The Others are trying to find them before it's too late. I thought that the romance between Quinn (a lupine) and Cassidy (a foxwoman) was pretty bland. They were fine as characters, though they could have been a little more developed. I felt that there was no spark between them and I was told they feel in love, rather than shown. The plot was decent enough and I'll read the next one in the series.

I've had this book sitting around for awhile, and just now picked it up. I'm glad I did, because it reeled me in right away! I finished it in 2 days, and probably would have finished it even faster than that had I not gone to work, but hey...have to pay bills!

Can't wait to read the second book in the series, She's No Faerie Princess, as soon as I get it!

This was a very good book. There were moments in this book that had me laughing out loud. I even loved the supporting characters.

It was a fun easy read. Warren tends to repeat herself a bit so it can get a little annoying. She seems to really like the Little Red Riding Hood and Big Bad Wolf analogy. She uses it in "Big Bad Wolf" at least. The characters are fun, especially the side ones.

Even though this is the first of the series, the later books really belong first so it can be a little confusing. It's because some of the other books started out as shorter stories and she rewrote them into books. So if you are the type that needs to read things in order, you'll have to read some of the reviews or go on the Warren's website to see if you can figure out which book goes first chronologically. She also has a free short story on her website about Richard.

Overall, this was a decent book. Nothing spectacular but worth the read.
