I threw a paper airplane love note from my window.
I aimed it at a gorgeous stranger and put my address on it.
Yep. You guessed it. I missed and hit a werewolf instead.
Best thing that ever happened to me?
Next thing I knew, a large angrily attractive werewolf man was trying to get in my apartment. I introduced him to my baseball bat and figured that was the end of things.
Because my well-meaning sister became a vampire to cure my immune disorder. Long story. In the process, she got a deadly team of fang bangers to hunt us for breaking their rules. Longer story. A+ for good intentions and a D- for execution, if you ask me.
Re-enter Mr. Grumpy and Growly werewolf. He’s going to be my bodyguard slash kidnapper, whether I like it or not. Apparently, he’s the only thing standing between me and certain death. Swoon, right?
Of course he hates all things vampire. A.K.A. he will take me from undead to dead-dead if he figures out what I’m becoming.
Thankfully, he has completely underestimated my ability to woo him with my adorable innocence, cheery disposition, and extreme powers of modesty.
As long as the feelings stay one-sided, I’ll be fine. Because giving your heart to a guy who is probably going to try to murder you is a recipe for disaster. And come on. When was the last time I made a catastrophic, life-threatening mistake?
What absolutely refreshing read! Penelope Bloom was a new to me author, last year, when I read her Anything But Rich series. And when I saw she was coming out with a paranormal romance, absolutely I was in for this. Add in a romantic comedy element, which usually isn’t my favorite sub-genre, but it worked soooo well for this book. I found myself chuckling quite a bit because Riggs was an absolute grump bear (or well, wolf) and I’m such a fan of dry humor. I couldn’t tell you the last time I read a book with awesome dry humor, but Penelope did a fantastic job with it.
Sylvie is the perfect match for Riggs. She exudes so much innocence and from living in a bubble for so long, it was nice to see her out of her bubble … even though the circumstances weren’t ideal. She took it all in effortlessly and I loved that about her. Plus, anyone that can deal with Riggs constant grumpiness, that’s a major win!
Riggs! Can someone get this man a burrito? I loved his undying love for food. He’s a man that knows what he wants, can’t complain about that. And Sylvie truly helped him become a much better person, a happier one at that.
I enjoyed the heck out of this one and I hope Penelope gives us more just like it! If you’re looking for a paranormal romance that’s not too heavy into the PNR world AND has witty writing, check out I Bite She Sucks!
