Review of book:
I liked this book, I really did. Sometimes when two authors team up, the result can be less power packed plot, and more like two styles trying to fight their way out of the literary paper bag. Amber Kell and RJ Scott have put together a story that has a multi-layered plot that both engages and entertains, with characters that I’d love to share a cup of coffee with. As the second book in the End Street Detective Agency series, The Case of the Wicked Wolf could be read as a standalone piece, however, there were things that I think would have had a deeper meaning for me if I’d had the benefit of working through the first book.
Sam owns the detective agency featured in the story, and what I love most about the guy is that he’s so far in denial about his paranormal clientele, he’s captaining Cleopatra’s barge. He’s convinced that the majority of the cases he’ll take on will be for “normal” humans, and gets so darn flustered when something not so “normal”happens. He’s also got the most understanding boyfriend ever, Bob, who also happens to be – wait for it – a vampire. So much for normalcy huh? He’s funny, sexy, and perpetually amused by Sam’s insistence that his life won’t revolve around working with the paranormal community.
Sam’s hired to help Hartman Hunter find his kidnapped daughter Shelby. Sounds pretty straightforward, except Hartman is the alpha of the local werewolf pack, and they suspect that Shelby’s been kidnapped by other paranormals. When they hit a wall during the investigation, Hartman goes to his ex-lover, the demon he left to sire an heir for the pack, who is none too thrilled that Hart’s blown back into his life. Danjal has every right to be hurt. Hartman not only ditched him for his “duty” to the pack, he made sure to give him a nasty verbal send off, designed to make their break up “easier”. Dan could easily have been a doormat to the more physically imposing Hart, but the demon has some tricks up his sleeve that you hope that you’re never on the receiving end of.
It’s apparent that both couples click sexually, but what I found really refreshing is that the chemistry continues on outside of the bedroom. I know they say that a woman’s primary sexual organ is her brain, but I think that these four men show how a good relationship is as much built on the everyday things as it is between the sheets. The authors crafted characters that were not only likeable, but enviable as well. The Case of the Wicked Wolf by Amber Kell and RJ Scott was well worth the time, and I look forward to reading the other installments in the series.
