The Big Bad Wolf Tells All
Author: Donna Kauffman
Why Is It That I’m Not Willing to Settle for a Sheep Like the Rest of My Friends? — Sheep sex aside, what’s wrong with a man who puts family first, who maintains a steady job, has college funds set up for his kids and builds that nest egg for his retirement? Member of the herd, never straying. Solid, dependable Sheep Guy. Wh...  more »Tanzy Harrington is the Bay Area’s most-read romance columnist and self-proclaimed love-’em-and-leave-’em artist--and she’s not quite ready to tie herself down to one man. That is, until Riley Parrish lands on the scene.

When Tanzy agrees to house-sit for her eccentric great-aunt, she finds herself sharing close quarters with Riley. At first he seems a bit too much like the “sheep” Tanzy derides in her column--too polite, the classic boring good provider. But when she catches a glimpse of the “wolf” lurking in his eyes, the ultimate alpha female is about to take a fall.

I had been wanting to read this book for a long time. It's funny, intelligent, and the characters seem real and believable. I love Donna Kauffman's style. The mystery/suspense part of the story was a bit tedious, I thought, but it didn't detract from my overall enjoyment of the book.

Been-there, done-that babe falls for Mr. Nice Guy, in a first from romancer Kauffman. Tanzy Harrington prefers supersexy, totally irresponsible men, and she's bedded plenty of them. Good old dependable dudes who have Husband Material stamped on them just don't do it for her, and she's not afraid to let the readers of her Bay Area online romance column know she's the Last Bridesmaid and proud of it (pages of breezy chat with her fans and friends make the point ever so clear). In her wonderful world are two kinds of men: Sheep and Wolves. Fortunately, she seems to have an unbreakable heart, though she herself has broken a few, and nothing has ever gone wrong in her little moral universe. Marriage is fine for the other Sheep but baaaaaaaaaaad for her (quite a few ovine sound effects punctuate this narrative, interspersed with greeting-card wisdom from snappy-talking Tanzy). But her aristocratic Aunt Millicent, a silver-haired Vassar graduate who never lets anyone forget it, thinks that Tanzy needs something more in her consequence-free life. Tanzy thinks Millicent's latest choice is definitely a Sheep--or is security expert Riley Parrish really a Wolf? When an anonymous fan begins to harass Tanzy, Riley steps in, though she doesn't know that Millicent paid him to protect her. He's happy to accompany sexy Tanzy to San Francisco soirees, even get up close and personal in the back of a limo if the job calls for it, but he's much too cool to get wrapped around her pretty little finger. She can't figure out why she's so attracted to him, since he definitely isn't her type--is he? The subplot moves glacially toward various suspects: Could it be the creepy middle-aged geek? The frumpy blond lesbianwith a secret crush? Maybe it's a creepy middle-aged geek masquerading as an obsessed lesbian! Or .
