When King Werewolf shows up in veterinarian Vee Scarpa’s ER, she’s livid.
Her father, North American head honcho vampire, has threatened a chilling or else if she “accidentally” helped a wolf again, especially since they’re at war. But she’s tempted by the sexy wolf. And his deadly blood calls to her in a way that should set off warning bells…
A promise to his brother in arms obliges Lexan Dimitrov to rescue the aristocrat vampire before her family discovers her secret—a secret Vee herself isn’t even aware of. What he didn’t expect was to find her sexy-as-hell. He’s not into vamps, yet the inescapable heat building between them is a delicious temptation guaranteed to end in total disaster.
Worldbuilding: I loved the paranormal elements – vampires, werewolves, hybrids – and the setting of Charlotte, North Carolina.
Characters: Vee is smart, funny, independent, and I liked her thinking. I really enjoyed watching her work vamp family politics and the fact that she was a hands-on kind of partner in everything.
Lexan is the super-alpha of our dreams, basically; old-school, in a way, protective, intense, super charismatic (animal magnetism, hehe!), and so very deliciously strong.
I could tell from Chapter 1 that would be super hot together, because they had instant and explosive chemistry. Their one on one was really hot too, and I loved the shifting dynamics of their relationship a lot.
Plot: The story start with a hilarious moment (thermometer, enough said) and gets more and more entertaining and fun with each page. I loved the enemies to lovers spin, rival clans, old tensions, lies – awesome fun, all of it. The pace of events was rapid and there were some very exciting action scenes. Plus, intrigue galore as we find out what happened with Vee’s mom.
Writing: Third person, past tense narrative, his/her POV. Loved her spunky voice and his more dramatic one.
Curb Appeal: Really cool cover, hooking blurb – definite impulsive buy material for my PNR cravings.
I had a great time reading The Way You Bite and recommend it to fans of stories that include vampires and werewolves with a hybrids twist, and to those who really enjoy enemies to lovers scenarios.
