WELCOME TO ALPHAVILLE, where the she-wolves and alpha-males play. . .for keeps.
Renny Landry is a wolf on the run. Pursued by a shapeshifting stalker and his slobbering pack of killer coyotes, she is forced to flee her job as a librarian to find sanctuary in the wooded hills of Alpha, Washington. A well-secluded safe space for troubled shifters, Alpha is Renny’s last hope. But the first person she meets there is a gorgeous alpha male with fiery eyes, fierce tattoos, and one ferocious appetite—for her…
Mick Fischer thought he left his past behind when he moved to Alpha. But fate has a way of biting him in the tail when a female wolf shows up on his property. Wounded, desperate—and disarmingly hot—Renny brings out the snarling, protective alpha beast in Mick like no other woman he’s known. Can these two haunted, hunted wolves manage to mate for life…even as the deadliest past demons howl at their heels?
BABY, I'M HOWLING FOR YOU was a fun, action-packed paranormal romance which tick off all of the paranormal romance tropes in an entirely entertaining way. It had tons of twists and plot points that I thoroughly enjoyed and really didn't see coming which I am always appreciative of. I liked the concept of Alphaville, as a place for shifters who have nowhere else to go. With that as a setting there's definitely plenty of room for more books especially with the various quirky Alphaville residents we are introduced to. The plot was really entertaining in a thriller-esque sort of way as Renny's stalker ramps up his dangerous behavior. There was also a nice balance between the action and the romantic development between Renny and Mick.
I enjoyed Renny and Mick's relationship, especially since they are a librarian and a graphic novelist. Their home library must be amazing! Mick was unlikable for me in the beginning as he suffered from angry-Alpha syndrome. He redeemed himself somewhat in the end though I was more partial to Renny. Renny is a woman who is not about to just sit back and let others solve her problems. She tough, resourceful, and thoughtful of others. Although, I kind of wanted to tell her that it's okay to accept some help sometimes especially since she has an insane stalker after her! I enjoyed learning Mick and Remy's backstories and how they were connected to each other in a unique sort of way.
BABY, I'M HOWLING FOR YOU is a great start to a series that has a ton of potential for some interesting stories. I loved Remy and Mick's relationship and seeing them workout the kinks. The plot was thrilling and tense with some lightheartedness thrown in to balance the story out. I will be looking forward to the next book in this series when it comes out!Series Titles:
