Heat Rating: 🔥🔥🔥
Do you read paranormal romance or books in a sub-genre that is typically outside of your comfort zone? Last year when Wolf Gone Wild was released so many bookstagram friends were raving about how much they enjoyed this paranormal rom-com. I still hesitated because it had been years since I had read a book featuring witches or vampires. I am so glad that I decided to pick up Wolf Gone Wild – it surprised me in the best way!
Mateo Cruz is a werewolf, but he hasn’t been able to shift in a few months and he fears it’s because of a spell that’s been cast on him. He seeks out a hex-breaker witch and that leads him to Evie, a local witch in New Orleans who typically doesn’t deal with werewolves.
I loved the chemistry that was so evident between Mateo and Evie as soon as they met. Cross knows how to write a sensual slow burn. I would definitely classify Wolf Gone Wild as a slow burn, and I loved the way that Mateo and Evie developed their relationship. It was the perfect amount of sweetness and sexy.
I didn’t expect Wolf Gone Wild to be so funny, but I loved the internal dialogue between Mateo and his wolf who is aptly named Alpha. These two had some of my favorite parts of the book and I absolutely loved their parts!
I also really enjoyed Evie’s relationship with her sisters. Sometimes when there are so many secondary characters in a book they can get lost, but in Wolf Gone Wild I was invested in all of the characters and want a story on each of Evie’s sisters!
The suspenseful/mystery part of the book was also intriguing. I was hooked immediately from the beginning and was left stunned with the final reveal. So many parts of this book played out like a movie for me and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
If you’re looking to try a paranormal romance I think Wolf Gone Wild is the perfect book to start with. It was funny, sweet and sexy! I really really enjoyed this book and can not wait for the next book in the series
