Series Review: Wild About You by Vicki Lewis Thompson
Wild About You is a paranormal romance series from author Vicki Lewis Thompson that centers (at least so far) around werewolves. In the first book in the series, A Werewolf in Manhattan, we’re introduced to Aiden Wallace and Emma Gavin. Aiden is part of the powerful and wealthy Manhattan Weres. As next in line to be alpha, it’s his job to find out how author Emma Gavin is able to write her romance books featuring werewolves with such accuracy. There’s an immediate attraction between Aiden and Emma but keeping the Weres existence a secret from humans is the most important rule among his kind and Aiden will do whatever is necessary, even risk heartache, to make sure their secret remains hidden.
Werewolf in Greenwich Village is a novella that takes place between A Werewolf in Manhattan and Werewolf in the North Woods. Clothing designer Nadia Henderson was expected to mate with a pack alpha. Now she’s free of the planned mating and ready to have a little fun with Quentin Wallace, a cousin to Aiden and someone Nadia has had a long time crush on. She’s thrilled to learn that Quentin feels the same way about her but when she’s called back to her pack to deal with her out of control brother, Nadia and Quentin’s relationship may end before it ever begins.
Werewolf in the North Woods features Roark Wallace, younger brother to Aiden and a anthropology professor. He’s in a small town outside of Portland to label a Bigfoot sighting as nothing more than a old man’s wild imagination at work. He feels bad for making Earl look like a fool but if it was to get out that Bigfoot is real, it would threaten the existence of his own kind. It becomes harder for Roark to dismiss Earl’s sighting when his beautiful granddaughter Abby shows up and makes it clear that she plans to save Earl’s good name.
In each book, either mating expectations, pack hierarchy or the fact that werewolf/human matings are severely frowned upon is the main problem keeping the hero and heroine from being together. Hurdles must be jumped and courage to say, ‘I don’t care what you think’ needs to be built up before anyone can have their HEA. Each book was a quick and not overly complicated read. No new ground is broken but this series was a cute, fun and at times silly paranormal romance adventure. I can’t say that I’ll ever pick these books up again but I don’t regret the time I spent reading them and I do plan on continuing the series.
