A paranormal category romance from Entangled's Covet imprint...
This lone wolf falls hard...for his enemy.
Unmated werewolves don't normally live past three hundred years old...and billionaire Jack MacGrath is cutting it close. Sure, he has almost everything-the respect of his peers, a mansion in San Francisco, a private jet, and fast cars. But without a mate, Jack's in trouble. Then he sees her. Gorgeous, proud...and his enemy.
Isabelle Connelly is good at hiding things from her father. Like her success as a painter, or the incredibly intense attraction she has to Jack MacGrath. After all, she's royalty and falling for anyone lesser-to say nothing of a rival pack-would be, er, unseemly. Now she must choose between her duty to her family and her pack...or her perfect fated mate.
BEAUTY AND THE WEREWOLF is a charming paranormal romance filled with much romantic and family angst. It is an even paced story and I enjoyed the werewolf mythos set up in this story. One issue I did have was the fact that Isabelle's dad seems to be intent on her marrying someone from her pack regardless of the fact that the mythos sets up that if you don't find your mate you will die after 300 years. So he is sentencing is daughter to a shortened life due to his bitterness over who her mate ends up being? That's some serious grudge! This apparent grudge against Jack's family led me to really not like Isabelle's family since they are not only giving her a death sentence but also Jack; a person they don't know at all.
I liked the relationship between Jack and Isabelle especially their banter and inner thoughts during the art auctions. It's both sweet and funny. Though I was baffled over the sheer amount of money each of them are able to spend! I swear they each spend a small country's yearly GDP throughout this book. I liked Jack as he was an interesting character being so close to death yet is caring enough to be able to still contribute some good to the art world. Isabelle is equally likable and a good foil to Jack. I was a little confused at Isabelle's ability to create such a masterpiece of artwork in an evening but I am no artist so I guess it's possible?
This is the second installment of the San Francisco Wolf Pack series, and it is filled with a lot of heavy emotions and conflict for the number of pages it has. I was not a fan of many of the secondary characters as they consisted mostly of Isabelle's obsessive grudge holding family. Aside from that issue BEAUTY AND THE WEREWOLF is a good quick read.Series Titles:
